Mostly sketches. Occasionally a painting. Nothing political other than caricatures reinforcing the truism "Politics is Show Business for Ugly People".
Nice work. I'd watch a show where you introduced TZ like stories.The public demands that cartoon of artist interaction.So I guess the Comic Fest was a roaring success. Everyone have a great time.
I went to the talk-back session at the end and attendees seemed to like the thing. The artist alley was crowded, but that could be the small room. I don't believe any artist made money, but besides Scott and Marty the other artists I spoke to were glad they came. The important thing is whether the dealers made money, and it is likely they did. We'll find out soon. People were shocked that you could get right up to Neal Adams, but he was not giving away his time. At his panel he seemed happy.
People like human size events. Comic Fest is still human size.
I love my drawing of Ben more every time I see it.Just sayin'!Ben, on the Neal Adams topic--there was a very nice woman who attended both days with husband and two small boys, (she kindly bought a "FUME" in which she requested I draw her as the heroine on her t-shirt, the top-hatted, fishnetted, magician-y lass from DC Comics, the name of which neither of us knew, but which Scott B. provided as "Zatana"--except I heard "Satana," and inscribed it thusly inside her comic--OOF). Anyway, she started telling me what an amazing artist her 9 yr old is, and that he was showing Johnny his portfolio, and that they wanted to show Neal Adams...to which I saw visions of Neal blowing them off (understandably, to a degree--what's he s'posed to do for somebody's kid??), so I tried to lower expectations...dunno how that encounter turned out, but I hope it went OK--that kid may be scarred for life!
Johnny Gerardy told me a story where Neal Adam's criticism did scar an artist for life. It was a brother team of artists and Adams criticized one of them and he never recovered. His output was much less than the brother. Can't remember the names.
I meant inclusive of Scott and Marty the other artists were glad they came.
Yes Marty, your Ben sketch is supreme.
Thank you, Tommy!
