Getting ready for Comic Con

I mentioned on Monday that I am getting ready for the San Diego Comic Con, which will be upon us in just a couple of weeks. One of the things that I have been working on is a new business card and postcard leave behind. There is a secret item I am working on that I will share with you when it is all finished.

Now that I have committed to these I think back to the last business card and leave behind I carried around at Comic Con and a little piece inside me dies. Live and learn, right? There is much more recent work I wanted to use for these, but alas I can't due to NDAs. The good news is that many of my recent clients are allowing me to use unreleased work in my hard copy portfolio for self promotion at the Con, so I can't really complain.

New and improved double sided business card with Info-tastic-mega-overload power!

Postcard leave behind. I will of course realize all the things I should have done once I am talking to an art director at the con.

I will keep you posted as the other items progress. I hope they will turn out super neat.

For those of you not following me on Twitter or Facebook you may not have heard my update yesterday about the ceiling tile I painted for Tijuana Flats. I have been told it took second place in a popular vote... which I was never told would be a popular vote and thus did not allow me to vote for my own tile or get anyone else I know to vote for said tile. Oh well, I still won some free burritos and the tile is very well placed in the restaurant with my web address clearly visible.

Second place! ( the first loser) ;)

For more samples of my work or to contact me regarding my availability head over to my website:


  1. I've already said congratulations on second place in the competition but it doesn't hurt to say it again. WELL DONE MATEY :)

    And I really like your cards :)

  2. Thank you very much Scott! Never hurts to hear it again either :)

    Glad you like the cards! I always find myself leaving these kinds of things to the last minute even though they are so important. I just hope they show up from the printers somewhat close to what I sent them. Cross my fingers.

  3. I would have voted for your tile as well if I had known!

    Also, the back picture for your oversized business card seems to link to the front. From what I can see it looks like a good selection of pictures. Each is a little different in color palette and composition.

  4. Nevermind, I just didn't scroll down!
