Army Mash-Up – Frenchy as Harley Quinn

I want to begin sharing some of my show art with everyone. Here is my latest print for my comic con appearances. Each print cost me about $6 to make…. so I really don’t make money with the prints… but you have to have a wall of these things to get noticed. Prints are printed on archive quality bristol board and use special ink. I have to sell a ton of prints to make a profit…. and I maybe sell 3 or 4 at each show. I make money on my commissions. Drawing real art is where I make enough money to break even at nearly every show! Yeah, I am NOT quitting the day job, lol………

The art here was taken from one of my sketch cover drawings I created a few years ago of Frenchy as Harley Quinn and Charmy as The Joker. I have been wanted to color it in and make a print since the day I completed the original. I just printed 5 prints to take with me this weekend to Victoria Comic Con. I will be lucky to sell one. Prints just don’t sell…. but when you have a wall of prints, people notice your table. You cannot be successful if you are not noticed!

I will post more mash-ups soon!!!!

Charmy’s Army – January 14, 2018

SHOW SEASON BEGINS NEXT WEEK!

Next weekend, I will be in Victoria, Texas for my first of many appearances scheduled for 2018. This is the fifth and final year for Victoria Comic Con… so I am excited and saddened all at the same time.

I am so excited about this show’s reputation. I have heard nothing but amazing experiences from vendors. I also hear the promoters are the nicest people in the business. I cannot wait to meet them both! I am also very happy to meet an entire new audience from a city I have yet to pitch my work to.

I am also very excited to visit this great little city. My wife’s mom and dad were stationed there when her dad was working construction back when Debbie and I were first married. There was a kolache bakery they took us to that I plan on hitting that morning when I drive up. I am leaving my house around 4:00 am so I can be there around 6:30 am and eat breakfast at this amazing bakery. I love a good kolache. There are so many “fake” kolache bakeries popping up everywhere who know nothing about kolaches. If the bakery does not offer Poppy Seed kolaches, you are more than likely eating “fake” kolaches.

I am bummed that they are pulling up stakes. I hear the city has made life so difficult for this show. I hear more and more news regarding cities getting greedy, forcing out shows for whatever reason. The cities either want to do their own show and run out the little guys…. or the raise fees and taxes on the smaller shows… or they organize big events on the same weekend as they try and compete with the show. Whatever the reason is here, I feel for the promoters who have worked so hard over the past 5 years to build an amazing show for the city of Victoria. That said, I have no idea what the real story is.

If you are in the area of Victoria, Texas… come out and see me! Follow my event page to snatch up one of a kind art before the show begins and guarantee your purchase…
