Dallas Comic Con & Stan Lee, AGAIN!

Above-Average-Cons-Dallas-Comic-Con-with-stan-leeI’m so behind in everything. I’m making new artwork, printing artwork for Heroes Con and trying to keep you all updated on what I’m doing. Sorry that I suck at it. I wish this was my full time job, but these darn bills require me to work for money. It sucks! (Heroes Con is in two days by the way.)

Anyway, two weekends ago I attended the Dallas Comic Con! Boy, oh boy it was fun. The best part was I got to see my two very best friends in the whole wide world, Dan and the better Dan. You guess which Dan is the better one.I’ve known them both since we were teenagers.
Dan P. (The one on the left.) is shown here prominently displaying his crotch to the world. (He’s so proud.) I’ve known him since middle school. Dan L. (The one on the right.) looks crazy while I look as if I’m dreaming of Kate Upton. I’ve known him since high school. I’m not related to either of them, but they are like my brothers and this convention was a happy excuse for us to get together for the first time in roughly five years. I wish I took more pictures of us. Continue reading “Dallas Comic Con & Stan Lee, AGAIN!”

Above-Average-MegaCon-034Saturday at MegaCon 2015  my gorgeous girlfriend was nice enough to buy me a ticket to get my picture taken with Stan “The Man” Lee. I was really hoping to just run into him at Red Robbins, but that just didn’t seem to be happening.

Well I kind of read into this opportunity as a chance to actually meet and greet Stan, so I started freaking out about giving him something. The man is partially responsible for my childhood. Also most of the things that have entertained and inspired me for my entire life. I felt obliged to give the man something. I couldn’t just give him a print. Stan deserves original art, so I drew this, that morning.

MegaCon 2015 – The Story

Above-Average-Mega-Convention-LogoThis year MegaCon 2015 was the bomb. It has been less bomb like in the past, but I loved this one. My girlfriend and I drove down to Orlando, Florida Thursday afternoon. After about 7 hours and one speeding ticket. We got there about 1:00 am Above-Average-MegaCon-001Friday morning. I had some Hotels.com rewards points so I was able to stay at a pretty nice hotel. We checked in, slept and then did what I do whenever I leave Atlanta, GA. We ate at Denny’s.
(The greatest restaurant ever.) If you don’t like Denny’s then MOVE BACK TO RUSSIA!

Some Old Sketches From 2014

I was rummaging, because I rummage. I came across some sketches from 2014. These are 5×7 sketch cards I take to comic book conventions, to draw whatever Above Average Art people may want from me.  Continue reading “Some Old Sketches From 2014”

Face vs. Face

Face-to-Face-Hulk-vs-Wolverine-Above-AverageBelow are a group of old ink and marker Illustrations I created back in the day. I tried to mix it up. I got some Marvel, a little Dark Horse and a bit of DC. Although Disney owns everything or will soon. (These are not my characters. Please don’t sue me.) They were actually drawn on sketch cards and scanned in at a larger resolution. Continue reading “Face vs. Face”
