Hi everyone! I wanted to take a moment and break my silence from the end of last season to touch base and talk about all that has been going on for the last several months. Most importantly I have to announce that I have a new comic book called Teleport that I’ve been working on with Moomie Swan. I’ll give that it’s own post, so I’ll touch on it shortly.
I haven’t been making the updates on the site, but con season has been going well. I’ve been a bit distracted and haven’t been taking as many photos when I’m on the road, but that’s something I’ll look to fix in the future. I’m recently back from back to back con Indy PopCon and Chicagoland Comic Con. I love going down to Indy. Friends down there are so nice to hang out with and the attendees are pretty awesome. Chicagoland Comic Con had the new experience of tabling a con on astroturf.
I only have 4 conventions left in the remainder of this year.
- Wizard World Columbus – Aug 4-6
- Wizard World Chicago – Aug 24-27
- Cincinnati Comic Expo – Sept 22-24
- Chicago Pop Culture Convention – Nov 25-26
I’m really looking forward to these conventions. I hope to see you there.
Sketches and Prints
I’ve really slowed down on posting sketches and prints on the site. Largely because I slowed down on making them. I’ve largely stopped selling prints at comic cons, just to focus on the new comic. I’m really proud of Teleport and I want to give it the focus it deserves. If you want to see some of my artwork, I’m still making sketches with regularity, I post them up on instagram. You can find me there under @hallopino. All of the sketches I present on instagram will be available at conventions first-come-first-serve.
I have a bunch of ideas for new prints with original characters. I’ll be working on those this fall. So please keep an eye out for those. I’m looking to put a lot of work into them. I’ll do a couple pop culture prints when I can. I’m excited to do something for the new doctor, or something with all 13.
I think that’s all to report for now. I’m looking forward to sharing new things with you all!
