Christopher Jones at CONSOLE ROOM 2018

What a great time to see my fellow Whovians at the Console Room convention this weekend!

I’ll be in the convention’s Artist Alley located in the Woodlands Room right next to the bar. That’s right – NEXT TO THE BAR! I’ll be at my table there most of the weekend, selling art, signing books, and happy to chat with anyone who stops by.

Two times to look for me elsewhere:

  • Saturday at 10:00am Katy Rex and I will be talking to Dave Wheeler on Main Stage about Creating Comic Books.
  • Saturday at 12:30pm when I’ll be interviewing Console Room guest Dan Starky on Main Stage, talking about his recurring role as Strax and what it’s like being the most famous Sontaran in Doctor Who.

Last weekend’s Free Comic Book Day saw the release of Titan Comics’ Doctor Who free comic which not only featured the debut of Jodie Whitaker’s 13th Doctor, but had a 5-page teaser for my 7th Doctor mini-series Operation Volcano that is coming out in June. (Below are my covers for the first two issues of that series featuring Sylvester McCoy’s 7th Doctor and Sophie Aldred’s Ace, plus a cover featuring David Tennant’s 10th Doctor I did for Titan’s “Road to the 13th Doctor” mini-series.)

  

I won’t yet have copies for sale of either of those books, but I do have the trade paperback collection of the 3rd Doctor mini-series Heralds of Destruction that I did last year with Paul Cornell. Pick one up and get it signed!

New 11×17 Prints For Sale!

I’ve done a number of new prints since Console Room last year: “Thirteen” featuring Jodie Whittaker as the 13th Doctor, “The Paternoster Gang” featuring Strax, Madame Vastra and Jenny, and if you like me you love Doctor Who AND Superheroes, check out “Love at First Sight” featuring Harley Quinn and the TARDIS.

It may not be new, but given the current comic book I’m drawing you might want to check out “Come on Ace, We’ve Got Work To Do!” featuring The 7th Doctor and Ace versus an army of Daleks. It’s the print that led to me doing Doctor Who comics for Titan! (Ask and I’ll tell you the story!)

If you’re a Young Justice fans like me and are chomping at the bit for the premiere of the long awaited 3rd Season later this year, I have a bonanza of prints to tide you over! The Season 2 Team print, The Bat Family, The Flash Family (aka “Flash Forward”), The Marvel Family, and for you villain fans out there, Let There Be Light are all new since last year.

  
 

In addition the new additions I’ll still have my full selection of 11″x17″ color prints including Young Justice and Doctor Who favorites and even Svengoolie!

And I’ll also have my selection of 8.5″x11″ prints at $10 (color) and $5 (black & white)

Raven Teen Titans Print Bluepulse Black and White Print with Impulse and Blue Beetle
 
Wonder Woman 77  

You can see the rest of my prints in my gallery. As usual, all my prints are available from my Etsy store, but they’re cheaper to get from me in person at my discounted convention prices.

Commission Sketches

I will be doing sketches during the convention. Stop by my table, H4, on Friday or Saturday to get on my list! Here are my at-the-con sketch rates.

  • Full Figure: $100 for the first character + $80 for each additional character
  • Head Sketch (shoulders & up): $60 or $40 with a current student ID

My sketches are ink drawings done with brush pens on 9″x12″ Bristol. I’ll do commission drawings for the same rates in sketchbooks or on sketch covers for the same rates if you provide the book.

Christopher Jones at C2E2 2018

I’m thrilled to see so many friends and fans again at Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo this weekend! I’ll be at Artist Alley table H4 for all three days of the convention.

Here’s a handy map to help you find me at the con!

Yes, once again everybody’s favorite clown prince of crime Mister J will be joining me! He’ll be roaming the convention getting into staying out of trouble when he’s not at my table!

2018 Con Exclusive Free Mini-Print

Those who have been following me for a while know that C2E2 is also where I unveil my new FREE mini-print for the year! These are convention exclusive 4″x6″ signed prints that can only be obtained by visiting me at a convention and showing me that you follow me on Facebook or Twitter. It’s a way that I can say thank you to my fans for sticking around. And they’re sort of starting to become collectible, apparently.

In honor of Young Justice returning this year, my newest Mini-Print features Kid Flash claiming another “Souvenir”: a mini-print of Kid Flash claiming another “Souvenir”: a mini-print of… well, you get the idea.

I’ll still have my mini-prints from previous years for C2E2 since I’m driving (not worrying about luggage weight really increases what I can bring with me!) So if you’ve missed one, get it while you can.

New Prints Since Last Year 

I’ve got a few new 11″x17″ full color and 9.5″x11″ full color AND black-and-white prints for purchase since last year’s C2E2, too. I think you guys are going to like these. As usual, I’ll be offering all of my prints at a significant discount from my Etsy store prices.

First, for Young Justice fans, there’s a bonanza of new prints! The Season 2 Team print, The Bat Family, The Flash Family (aka “Flash Forward”), The Marvel Family, and for you villain fans out there, Let There Be Light! 

  
 

For Doctor Who fans I’ve got new prints as well: “Thirteen” featuring Jodie Whittaker as the 13th Doctor, “The Paternoster Gang” featuring Strax, Madame Vastra and Jenny, and if you like me you love Doctor Who AND Superheroes, check out “Love at First Sight” featuring Harley Quinn and the TARDIS.

Given the Doctor Who mini-series I’m currently drawing (out this June with a special preview for Free Comic Book Day), it may not be new, this might be of special interest: “Come on Ace, We’ve Got Work To Do!” is my print featuring The Seventh Doctor and Ace.

In addition to those I’ll still have my full selection of 11″x17″ color prints including Young Justice and Doctor Who favorites and even Svengoolie!

  

 Justice League art print by Christopher Jones 

And I’ll also have my selection of 8.5″x11″ prints at $10 (color) and $5 (black & white), and a limited number of copies of the collected edition of Doctor Who: The 3rd Doctor mini-series by myself and Paul Cornell.
