Got to draw Burt Ward’s Robin and Julie Newmar’s Catwoman to flank Adam West’s Batman drawn by the one and only Neal Adams. Signed by Burt and Adam (with plans to get a sig from Julie at an upcoming con).

Keiren took photos of all my con sketches at Denver Comic Con in June and I was intending to do a blog post about them (and how much I loved Denver!) but…no time for anything but drawing Batman 66!
So here’s Bat-Mite.
This was the first con where I started putting color on sketches. I generally do greys and the occasional red, but I asked Keiren to get me a red and blue for superhero colors, and a flesh tone. Forgot I was asking a colorist! She ended up buying a handful of colors and I ended up using them. Planning to buy some more markers before FanExpo—I kept borrowing a green marker off of the artists beside me, and more than once I was wishing for an orange.

This ended up being one of my favourite drawings of the weekend (got to do a Big Barda which automatically wins). Made the owner nervous with my method though… In order to make sure my sketch fits and includes all the elements I want, I sketch it first on a piece of paper overtop the cover. Then I just cover the back of the sketch with pencil for a MacGyvered carbon copy—when that’s done, I position the sketch over the cover and just quickly draw over my sketch with a sharp pencil or a pen. Then…all I have to do is tighten the pencil lines and ink/colour. But this poor guy panicked when he saw the paper—thought I’d misunderstood and I was just drawing on that to give him. Had to reassure him that all was well…
