Fan Expo Wrap Up

I had a great time at last weekends Fan Expo in Toronto, and had the pleasure of sitting next to the incredibly talented Leonard Kirk all weekend (whose new Captain Britain series with Paul Cornell is HIGHLY recommended by the way).

I was able to get an amazing Animal Man sketch from Brian Bolland which now adorns the wall above my drawing desk...amazing.

Also did a number of sketches for fans, a few of which I have included up Baltimore Comicon in October. I'll be there with Matt Kindt, Christian Slade, Andy Runton and Chris Staros.
