NC Comicon: Raleigh- GREAT WEEKEND!

IMG_0849

Thank you to everyone who stopped at my booth at the Raleigh Convention Center over the weekend.  You made this Con the BIGGEST one yet for Franky 3D Resin Painting.

I also need to thank my Minions..I mean kids: Lia and Grant, for helping me with handing out glasses and cards. Great PR experience for them.

Special “Thank you” to all those that purchased prints and glasses…and Alex for buying an original: “The Treasure Map”.  Hope you got it out to your car safely (it was pretty crowded on Saturday).  The next day, several guests told me they saw it leaving the building, so I know that at least it got to the street.

Remember: take a selfie of your newly purchased artwork on your wall, post it on Twitter / Instagram (or your other favorite social media platform) and then send me a copy.  I’ll place you here on my blog.

Even DEADPOOL slows down to view the art!

Stopped by fellow ComiXed GARNER ARTIST, William Parker (Great stuff, you’ve got there)!

Gary DeStefano (Pop Culture Images) created a wonderful update on MARS ATTACKS & TRUMP!  Love #17 Trading Card!  What’s #18 going to be?

“Spock You Wear” artist, Jack Wenberg was nearby (love those shirts!)  Had some artistic conversations over a few hours…need to continue those discussions on “artistic inspirations”.  Thanks for telling me about artist: Jim Steranko.  His stuff is really cool and I’ll need to do more research on him.

I was also lucky enough to be placed next to the Ominous Press booth and talked at length with publisher Sean Hus Var and artist, Andy Smith. Thanks for the comics and the conversation!

Now that the Comicon is over…looking for some more input on my next paintings:  Spoke to 501st Legion: Carolina Garrison and asked them to find out what their fans are interested in seeing in a ROGUE ONE painting.  Spoke with BOXCAR Bar + Arcade rep about a possible “Street Fighter” themed painting…what ideas do you have?  Send me an e-mail and let me know!

Next event for me:  ARTFIELDS- MAKERS MARKET in Lake City, South Carolina.  I’ll have a booth April 22nd and 23rd, selling prints and originals.  April 28th @ 1pm, I’ll be at THE BEAN MARKET in Lake City, SC talking to the public about creating 3D artwork and the development of “TUSKEGEE”.

Looking forward to catching up with my many new comicon friends in the fall at Durham Comicon.
