A peek at a print that I will be debuting at this years Albuquerque Comic Expo! I’ll be located at table C18. Colors provided by the talented Timaree Zadel.
One of the commissions I was asked for at this past Sun City SciFi Convention in beautiful El Paso! Had a blast meeting and hanging with some really great peeps. Full report soon.
9x12 Bristol bruised by inks and copics
Quorra (take two)I quick share of something I pre-rocked for this weekend’s Sun City SciFi Convention. I had previously drawn her before so this would be my second attempt art her. Dug the new version of Tron and probably would not turn away at seeing a Quorra spin off. If your in the area or planning to attend the show, stop by and say “hi!”
Ink Wash and Copics on 9x12 Bristol
Try and try again is what comes to mind when it comes to Princess Leia especially the version from the memorable Return of the Jedi. Why? Because no matter how many times a year I draw her, it always seems like I am learning to draw her for the first time. Wonder if I should bring her along to this year’s convention season….

Lady Death Series 2 Sketch Cards by 5Finity
A fun set of sketch cards I got to do toward the end of last year. Been wanting to share some of the cards but when the time allowed to share came up I seemed to have misplaced my return cards. What you see here are the AE (artist exclusive, return cards). They were done with Copic Markers and Micron Pens on 2.5 x 3.5 sketch cards. I currently have 2 of the cards above for sale at the shop.

The Sketchbook Project 2013 look back.
Last year as I was surfing the web and finding interesting art ventures that other fellow artist had gone on to do I came about a unique yearly project called The Sketchbook Project. The short version is it involves getting a sketchbook that one would populate with massive creative and when done, within deadline, it is returned to be part of a permanent collection at The Brooklyn Art Library. How rad is that, my sketch art that people can check out in a library. And on top of that, before it is a staple at the library, it will be part of a traveling library where it will be available for people to check out in cites including San Francisco, Austin, Chicago and even Toronto to name a few. It is truly incredible to believe that my book will be along other great artist from around the world!
Being an artist that has started but never filled a sketchbook from end to end, this was both a challenge and a new goal setter for me. This project was also the last thing that I ended 2012 with, definitely making it a great highlight to wrap up the year.
For more info on the project or to catch it on its road trip, check it out on The Sketchbook Project.
Happy New Year!
Very late on the Happy Holidays and Happy New Years but I can honestly say that it was an amazing 2012 year to the very end. Thanks to all that have welcomed my art or continue to support it. As I’ve said before, I will continue jamming art as long as you all have an appetite for it.
So what have I not shared. A few things. One of them is the Sketchbook Project, some of the art has been shared here on previous post. I will go into it very soon in a future post, was very excited to have been part of the experience.
Another, as the picture displays, is a new design/direction for the website. The goal was to update the layout every year and here it is. Included and seen on the homepage are new links. Links which will be updated on a regularly bases. Along with the new website, a newly added DeviantArt link and page is now available. Still sorting out the images I will be posting, officially it will stand as my new gallery page.
There are several other things to cover but instead of rambling on I will go into detail in future posts. Hope you all have a great 2013 and thanks again for allowing me the opportunity to never put down the pencil. -Andy
