C2E2 – Chicago Comics and Entertainment Expo 2024

C2E2 2024 Tickets Are Now On Sale - Here's What To Know

I’m excited to be returning to C2E2 for the first time in a few years. Chicago is a favorite town of mine and I always have a great time at C2E2. This will be my first time attending since relocating to the Los Angeles area, so it’s going to be a bit of an adjustment to be flying to Chicago instead of road-tripping from Minneapolis!
I will be at the convention all three days (April 26-28) at Artist Alley table H-17 selling prints and comics featuring my art, and generally chatting with fans who want to stop by and say hello. As always, autographs are free. I’ll also be taking a VERY LIMITED number of request for original sketch commissions, so if you’re interested, stop by EARLY and reserve your space on the list.

More details below:

C2E2 will be held in the South Building at McCormick Place located at 2301 S. Lake Shore Drive in Chicago, Illinois. Artist Alley will be in the same section of the show floor as last year, in the back right section of the South Hall.                         

Artist Alley Hours are:

Friday, April 26: 10:00 AM — 7:00 PM
Saturday, April 27: 10:00 AM — 7:00 PM
Sunday, April 28: 10:00 AM — 5:00 PM

Art Prints

My prints are 11″x17″ on cardstock paper. They are $20 each (already a savings over what they cost when ordered from my Etsy store), but I can offer a discount of 3 for $50. I’ll have a selection of Young Justice and Doctor Who prints available, plus Justice League and Harley Quinn prints. And of course, I’m not coming to Chicago without bringing my Svengoolie portrait, as seen on the set of the Svengoolie TV show!

Harley Quinn - Check Please

In addition to many of the old favorites I’ll have available again this year, I have SIX new Young Justice prints being offered at a convention for the first time at C2E2 2024!

If you can’t make it to C2E2, all my prints are also available from my Etsy store.

I have very few slots available for commissions left, so if you’re interested I’d suggest seeking me out EARLY. If I’m drawing on my own paper I’ve got 9″x12″ bristol, but I will also draw in sketchbooks or on sketch covers if you bring them to me. Head-and-shoulders sketches are $100 and a full figure is $200.



I hope to see you there!

Join Me in the Metaverse


It’s been the year without conventions…

After having had to pass on Chicago Comics and Entertainment Expo (C2E2) this year because of scheduling, the pandemic saw the cancellation of my usual cycle of conventions: Emerald City Comic Con, MCBA SpringCon, CONvergence, and now New York Comic Con. I’ve been working away as part of the crew of Season 4 of Young Justice from my apartment in Studio City, CA. I’m doing fine, but definitely missing my usual convention rounds. I’ve missed the time with friends, the travel, meeting fans, and the whole convention experience. So I jumped at the chance to take part in the Metaverse event put on my Reedpop, the people behind NYCC.

The Adventure Continues: A Justice League Reunion Event – Fri. October 9, 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM, Empire Stage 1-E

The league is back! For the first time in over a decade, the founding members of the acclaimed series Justice League will reunite at NYCC! Join Batman (Kevin Conroy), Wonder Woman (Susan Eisenberg), Superman (George Newbern), Green Lantern (Phil LaMarr), Hawkgirl (Maria Canals-Barrera), Martian Manhunter (Carl Lumbly) and legendary Voice Director Andrea Romano as they reminisce about their fondest memories from the show, answer questions from the Fans, perform a live table read from an original JL script and more.

Justice League Art Print

Wonder Woman voice actress Susan Eisenberg asked me on Twitter if I’d be interested in creating an art print to mark the occasion of the New York Comic Con 2015 Justice League Reunion. I don’t think I can quite communicate to you the enthusiasm with which I immediately began sketching. You see, that I drew a handful of Justice League Adventures comics is almost irrelevant next to what a MASSIVE FANBOY I am about the Justice League animated series. So, creating this art was a huge honor. I hope you like it, and that if you do, you take home a copy for yourself.

I’ll have it available all 4 days (or until I run out!) at the usual convention price of $20. After the convention, it will join the rest of my prints on my Etsy store for $30. You’ll find me at New York Comic Con Artist Alley table D9. Here’s a map:

Toy Turns: Robotman

Justice League Unlimited characters

Justice League Unlimited characters

I’m launching a new series of posts here, as I wanted to share with you some of the character turns I did for DC Licensing which became the basis for some action figures by Mattel.

Mattel did a huge line of action figures based on the popular Justice League animated series that aired on Cartoon Network a few years ago. With the legions of heroes and villains and variant versions of those characters they appeared on the show, they had a lot to work with. But as they were coming to the end of the marketable characters to make toys from, Mattel wanted to keep the successful line going. The solution was to make figures based on DC Comics characters who never appeared on the show, and convert them into the distinctive style of the Justice League show!

I was hired by DC Licensing to do character turns (front, back and side views) of certain DC characters, translating them into the style of the Justice League animation designs. I was a fairly logical choice to do this as I had done other work for DC Licensing in the past and had drawn several issues of the comic book tie-in for the animated series in question, so I was fairly familiar with the stylistic traits of the series.

Robotman - Comic Book version

Robotman - Comic Book version

To be clear, I wasn’t designing toys, I was creating animation designs: I wasn’t making any allowances for hinged action figure joints or anything of the like, I was just trying to create a sleek, simple version of each character that would be the kind of interpretation that would be made when translating the character for animation. Even if these designs would never be animated, those are the sensibilities behind the existing Justice League designs I was trying to match. Taking my lead from what had been done with other DC Comics characters designed for the show, I felt I could take certain liberties with a given character’s look or costume to make that sleek/simple thing work, but that I otherwise should stick with a classic interpretation of the character.

The most fun I had with this series might have come when I was given the chance to do a 4-character set of designs featuring the Doom Patrol. These characters had appeared in animation on the Teen Titans animated series, but that show had a very different design style than Justice League, so I didn’t really refer to those designs and instead drew all my inspiration from the original 1960s versions of the characters from the comics. The first Doom Patrol member we’ll be looking at is Robotman.

The most noticeable thing about the Justice League animation style is that the heroic male characters have *ridiculously* broad shoulders – they’re all chest and shoulders with narrow hips. (The scary thing is that when you draw these characters for long enough, those proportions start to look normal.) The characters are constructed from fairly basic geometric shapes, and the silhouettes tend to be angular, but slightly rounded. I put Robotman through the Justice League animation filter and got this:

JLU Turns - Robotman

Aside from wrapping the comic book design around the proportions typical of the Justice League animation style, the one departure I took from the classic look was the D I placed on Robotman where a belt buckle would be. I placed this D on all the Doom Patrol designs I did, figuring that it would be a nice visual element to tie the four together, as nothing else about their appearances connected them as  a team. If anyone had objected, it was the kind of detail that would be easy enough to remove!

I guess they liked the D! You can see where some compromises were made to translate the “animation design” drawing into an action figure. The legs are a little stockier and the stance is wider so the figure will balance better, but otherwise it’s pretty close!

And check this out! Here’s the back of the card from the packaging for the Robotman figure. It shows the other characters from the Doom Patrol set within the larger Justice League Unlimited figure series. But wait, what’s that across the top?

Yep, that’s my Character Turn art on the packaging. They did this with pretty much all the figures I helped design. Cool, huh? I sure thought so! Next up for Toy Turns, the rest of the Doom Patrol, and then we’ll move on to some of the other characters I did.
