Boston Comic Con This Weekend!

Yes, it's the Boston Comic Con this weekend and I will be there both Saturday and Sunday. Much like this past Philly show, It's been a few years since I've done any shows in the Boston area.
From looking at the list of confirmed artists, I'd say this is going to be a big show and I'm really looking forward to it.

Sat 24th:
10:00 am - 5:oo pm
Sun 25th:
10:00 am - 5:oo pm

I'm hoping to get to draw some extra stuff before hand to bring to the show, but at the least I will be taking commissions and have books and limited prints for sale also.
Commissions: I'm also accepting Pre-Orders of commissions for the show. Just email me and I'll have it before the show or at least have you at the top of the sign up sheet.

Hope to see you there.

My Philly Show Report.

The Philly show was the first card show I ever attended as an artist in 2000 or 01, back when most people that walked by didn't even know what a sketch card was and I was horse from explaining them over and over again. A lot has changed since then, new and many more faces in front and behind the tables, and a few more grays for many of us. It was great to see familiar faces again and a pleasure to meet new fans, friends, and artists.
It's been a few years since I've done a card show and in that time I've drawn a few hundred more sketch cards to add to the thousands I've already done. For some reason, which my back was asking me about, I felt it necessary to bring everything card related I owned or had a scan of. I also brought along prints and comic stuff but in the end the table was only so big and much of it was relegated to under the table.
They had the artists corralled in a "circling of the wagons" approach and I think it worked well. It was easy to talk with and get to know each other and they all seemed very nice. I was next to Jeff Zapata from Topps who was doing Wacky Pack and Garbage pail kids commissions all weekend and I also got Otis Framptons "Oddly Normal" volumes (which I've still yet to unpack - Thanks Otis). My sign up sheet for commissions was full all weekend long and I'm grateful to anyone that pre-ordered any before the show.
Over all a pretty good weekend and I'd find it hard to complain about anything. But, next time I'll have the batteries in my camera charged so I have more pics to post. Of what I got , above is the best you'll get. Some of the commissions I did I got pics of. And the Conan went to the winner of the "Farthest Traveled Award"... Graham, all the way from the UK. I wish I was able to take pics of them all, I'm going to see if I can track down some scans.

Mecca, Jerusalem, the Wailing wall, the Vatican, the Grand Canyon, and the almighty Philly Non-sport card show. It's that simple. If your a card collector and haven't been to this show, I would put it on your Bucket List. Harris and Frank seem like they've got things worked out pretty well and the show seemed to run very smoothly from my vantage point.
Just go.

Philly Non-Sport Card Show This Weekend!

I'm heading out to Pennsylvania for this weekends Philly Non-sport card show in Allentown.
I think it's been almost 5 years since I attended this show and the first time in the new facility.

I've got my pencils sharpened and I'm ready to do some sketches... bring em on. I'm rested up and ready to wreak havoc on the card world!
Sat 10th:
10:00 am - 5:00 pm
Sun 11th:
10:00 am - 3:00 pm

I'll be there doing commissions all weekend and will also have some limited prints available.
Looking forward to seeing old and new faces this year so stop buy and say hi even if your not buyin'.
Commissions: I'm also accepting pre-ordered commissions for the show but get them in now or it won't be a pre-order anymore.

Conventions and Commissions Update

I just wanted to let everyone that got on my commissions list know that I'll be starting to dig into it by tonight or tomorrow. The plan is to get through the whole list by the end of next week. (As long as the schedule doesn't go all to hell) I wanted to thank everyone for the great response and can't wait to see how some these come out.

I also wanted to announce that I have 2 scheduled convention appearances coming up. The Philly Non Sports Card Show October 10-11, and the Boston Comic Con October 24-25. A few people have already contacted me about preordering commissions to be picked up at the show and I am taking orders for more of these right now. For more info check out my Sketchcard page or contact me directly about other types of commisions.

Thanks again.

Sketch cards, Forums, & Commissions (Now Closed)

( 8/21 - The Commissions list is all full and closed to additional commissions for now, thanks to all that contacted me and I will post if any more spaces or time opens up - WM)

I've had a chance to do a few PSC's recently and thought I'd post one that was a little more involved. It's a 9 card PSC Battlestar Galactica puzzle. I've posted it and many other pics, images and Sketch cards from the past few years in a thread of mine at the Scoundrel Art Forum, Warren Martineck, The Works... If you haven't seen it yet, stop by and check it out as I update it on a semi regular basis.

Here's a "Blog exclusive offer" (for now) I know a lot of you have been waiting for. Commissions are now open. I've put a block of time into my schedule for these so get them while you can. Check out my Sketch Card Page for all info about what's offered. You can email me directly about commissions at artwork@warrenmartineck.com

That's it for today. I know it's Friday but I'm out of the studio for the rest of the day so you'll just have to wait for next Friday to get casual.
