Anthrocon 2005

While going through some stuff on my decktop computer, I came across some art I did for the 2005 Anthrocon convention in Philadelphia. It's possible that this stuff hasn't been widely seen, so I thought I would put it up here.

As "Guest of Honor" for the show that year (Stan Sakai was GoH in 2004, and was also there with us in 2005), I was asked to do a few drawings for various purposes, This first one was to be used as the wraparound cover of the Anthrocon program book. Here's a not-too-great digital photo of my blue-pencil drawing:



And here is my inked version:




Michael Dooney did a beautiful job coloring this art for the final cover, and I have that somewhere... just can't lay my hands on it at the moment. -- PL

  3. Awesome as usual I love your full blown art layouts.
    I keep wishing you'd come back and honor us with some of your art in the comics just for a short while even.
    I'd also seriously love some toys of the super tmnt.

  4. I second that regarding Super Turtle figures-- and I'd also be happy to find a copy of the picture as well.

    I'm with others-- why don't you illustrate a story or two-- something written by one of the others if not by yourself? I enjoy your style.

  6. Superb Pete I love it! You have to release a book or something with all this art in it. I would just love to be able to hold it in my hands and absorb all the wonderful details.

    Murph, that story is best told by the person it happened to -- Eric Talbot. -- PL

    Thanks, Vaughn. The biggest problem for me in returning to drawing comics is that I don't draw as fast as I used to (probably because I don't draw as MUCH as I used to), and due to this, what might be a fun month-long job to create the art for a twenty-two page comic could turn into an unpleasant three or four month slog. -- PL
