Wizard World Chicago

Well Con season is about to start for me... SDCC is this week I will watch the net for all the news, but Aug 6 to 9 is Wiz World Chicago and that is where I will start my con season. I hope to catch up with a bunch of old friends and meet some new folks and get some new stuff for the blog.

Are you going to Wizard World? If you are drop me a note we can exchange high fives, talk Kirby, etc..... Also Check out this below either via the link or the info I copied. Doc is a buddy and trying to make it to Chicago with a Commission drive, if you like Kirby here is a good chance to get a nice commission at a great price. Anyone who gets something done I will post it here if you like. If you get one done, let him know Joel sent you. I'll be getting one for sure!

Wizard World Chicago?

Alright folks, I'm just going to lay it out straight. Some of you know that I've been planning for the better part of the year to attend Wizard World Chicago, coming up August 6-9. I found out this morning that I do in fact have a table assignment in Artist Alley--table 3832, as can be seen on Wiz World's site. But as I mentioned a couple days ago, right now I just can't make it.My wife and I are moving to Colorado on July 31. I was originally planning to hang back for a week or two so I could attend Wiz World among other things, but for several reasons I'm going to accompany Carla early. This makes getting back to Chicago a lot more difficult, which is why I initially gave up on trying to go. After discussing it with Carla, we've figured out a way I could possibly go, and you guys can help.The biggest hurdle is a plane ticket. If I can cover that, the rest of the trip pretty much falls into place, especially with the assumption that I'll be able to pick up a dollar or three at the show. So here's a special deal I'll set up for any of you that may be going to the show: If you feel comfortable paying up front, you can get a B&W inked full figure sketch for $25, where you'll be guaranteed on the list before the show. I won't be able to get to them before the show, but you would receive them shortly after, and the shipping is on me. But I don't want you to leave the show empty handed either, so if you stop by my table and I know you're on the list, you will get a free 4.5x6 mugshot, character of your choice. Again, this is only for those who know they are going to be attending Wizard World Chicago, August 6-9.I normally wouldn't make such a big deal of all this, but due to money and our new location, this will probably be the last show I'll make it to for the next year.I've also been getting a lot of questions about whether I'm still open for commissions, and since we're looking at a high cost move, I am definitely open for the foreseeable future. As long as you see the link to my commission rates to your right, I am open. It may be a while before I can get to them because of the crazy month ahead, but I guarantee no more than two months from the time I'm paid. And as always, if you have any questions, feel free to e-mail me at evantshaner@gmail.comSo as for now, the plan is to be there. I'm really excited about the opportunity to go and the chance to meet some of you. Hope to see you there.

Final Crisis, updates, etc...

Well I have been really lax and have posted nothing in ages..... bad blog owner. I have not had much in the way of new art in my sketch book, and what I do have has not been scanned. I'll do what I can to fix that.

Final Crisis... well it's over, and the 4th world is dead and gone and now it's the 5th world.... meh. It's still the 4th World, suck it Morrison.

My plan for this years con season it to get more sketches, and buy as many 4th World related comics out of back issues bins as possible.... but only if they are 1$ or less. Why? Why not! Anything with a Jack Kirby character 4th World character is game. So if you see me at a con and see some books point me in that direction.

That's it for now... I'm going to go troll the web for some 4th Worldly art....
