NYCC 2014

WOLVERINE. 2014. Watercolor on paper, 9 × 12″.

In case you haven't heard, I'll be attending New York Comic Con after all! I won't, however, be in Artist Alley this year. If you're hoping to get on the commission list... well, I have some bad news.

Because of the nature of my trip, not to mention pressing deadlines on The Valiant, I can only accept 6 names at this time. My art dealer, Mark Hay of Splashpage Art, has already filled the list. You can still contact him to be put on the waiting list, but it's unlikely I'll be able to do more. Apologies!

Speaking of The Valiant, a free digital preview is now available on Comixology! Aside from finished pages and process art, it includes interviews with writers Jeff Lemire and Matt Kindt, as well as myself. (And if, for some reason, you haven't read my first 3 issues of Daredevil yet, it's only $3.99.)

I'll have more Valiant-related panels and appearances to announce next week. Have a great weekend!

Signing Schedule (Splashpage Art, Booth 2405):

Friday 3:30 - 6:30 PM
Saturday 11 AM - 3 PM
Sunday 11AM - 1 PM

Sketch Information:

Paolo will take 6 commissions for the entire show. First come first serve. The list is open now with payment personal paypal. Specify the character & type of piece. All commissions are Head & Shoulder Busts. Pencils & Inks $100 Pencils, Inks and Colors $150 To have the piece done on a blank sketch cover add $25 for inked pieces or $50 for Colors.

ADAM WEST BATMAN. 2014. Watercolor on paper, 9 × 12″.

Hey, everybody! Remember when I used to blog? Those were the days. I think about once a week is all I'll be able to muster for the next few months. In the meantime, here's a Batman piece I did while in Tampa last month. I'm still hard at work on The Valiant (preview here), and will be promoting the book next month at NY Comic Con. I won't have a table, but I will be making an appearance at my art dealer's booth, Splashpage Art.
