Microcon 2009

Another Microcon has come and gone.

I have to tell you, It was the best convention I have done money wise. That is not really why I get tables at con’s though. I do it because it gives me a chance to be a geek with fellow geeks, something that I dont get to do enough being a stay at home dad out in nowhere…

It is a big ego bump though. Knowing that people will pay for your art.

So a couple friends snapped pictures of me at the table with my buddy Bill…


Which did a really good job of reminding me that I really need to be hitting the gym much more often then I have been.

One of the things I like the most about Cons is being able to see all the other artist and writers that I am a fan of…

Michael May would be one of those. Michael is great writer and one heck of a nice guy. I have been following his personal blog as well as his RobotSix blog on the CBR page. Michael posts some real cool things in his blogs, and I find that his intrest run pretty dang close to mine. I loaned him some Usagi Yojimbo books in hopes of Dragging him into the world of the Ronan Bunny.

Jessica Hickman is another one of those people. I love Jessica’s art. She draws some real pretty pictures. The coolest thing about Jessica this weekend though was that she got inducted to the 501st Legion.


UPDATE : I guess since I let this go so long with out finishing it, I might as well just post what I have. Mind is pretty cloudy on what I wanted to write about and it is best to just start fresh with Monday and go from there.

Yup you heard that right. Starting things back up full force come monday. The majority of my school is done, just a little more on a final project and the Final test (and if you know me, you know I never bother to study for tests.) so things are going to be back to a normal level of stress here.


The Monday morning after a busy weekend…

Wow, Lot of people checking out my blog all of a sudden!

If any of you want to check me out in my other homes on the internet you can find the links in the column to the right under the HOD links.

I will also be getting back into the regular schedule for updates starting next Monday, if not earlier.

I finished some commission cards last week:


I didn’t like how the background on the Tauntaun turned out but overall I had a lot of fun doing these cards. I had never done Ackbar before so that was a lot of fun.

I ended up picking up a bunch of commissions at the Convention Sunday afternoon so you can expect to be seeing a lot more art posts in the next week or so.

Plus next sunday is the end of my class, so hey lots more free time!


Also I have some sketchbooks left from the convention, anyone who is interested in getting one can email me at houseofduck at gmail dot com. They are $2.50 and that is with postage.

or you can get a sketchcard commission with a sketchbook for $12.00

(postage outside USA might cost a little more please ask for price.)

ok, time for me to get back to work!

Thank you to everyone who stopped by my table and said Hello!


Microcon Sketchbook and supplies…

Finally done putting together the sketchbooks and making some sketchcard blanks to sell at the Con on Sunday.



Microcon 2009

Havent been around much. Been pretty busy with school work and a sick kid and you know, just life in general.

I will be out in the real live world this sunday though! I will be a guest at the 2009 Microcon! So if you are in the area be sure to stop by and say hello!


I will be having a sketch book available at my table as well as taking a limited number of commissions for sketch cards.

Other then that classes should be wrapping up pretty soon here and I am not taking anything this summer so you should be seeing much more from me soon!!!
