2014 Prints

Here is a new batch of prints for upcoming conventions. Choosing what to do as a print is impossible so I had a hard time but I think I came up with a decent group. People tend to like my female characters more so I thought it’d be wise to choose accordingly. Storm is there because I enjoyed how the piece turned out and because of the book I’m working on (duh). Batman is there as the male character print and because he’s Batman (duh). Blowing Off Steam and Decaying Bloom are themes from my personal works which I think makes a lot of sense to have in this collection. Two of the pieces were already coloured but I went ahead and coloured the other two just to make these prints.

All prints will be available through me at conventions I attend.
