Strides I spend to the finish line

Reminder: today is the LAST DAY I can take preorders for Emerald City ComiCon sketches!  Black and white $50, color $100.  Email Tally(at)farbeyond(dot)com by the end of TODAY to reserve a spot.

My prints arrived yesterday and they are lovely!

Emerald City ComiCon is going to be HUGE this year.  I am tabling with Periscope Studio at booth #2621.  A few of us are set up at the adjacent booth #2627.  Here is a map to help you find us:

Eeeee, there are going to be costumes from The Hunger Games on display at the level 4 sky bridge!  Last year's ECCC was where I picked up "The Hunger Games: Songs from District 12 and Beyond". :D  I LOVE that soundtrack.  The Neko Case track is easily my favorite off of it:

Flew me to places I'd never been

Image's May solicitations are out!
MAY 15
BETWEEN GEARS creator NATALIE NOURIGAT joins the Atomics team! Someone broke into Flem’s lab and stole a dangerous invention. It Girl picks up the crooks’ trail, only to discover it leads to a team of underage secret agents – though the real criminal mastermind is centuries older than all of them.
Wait, WHAT?

Yes, friends, I got to draw an issue of It Girl!  Jamie's script is crazy-fun, Mike's universe is sensational, Allen Passalaqua and CRANK! take my black and white pages and turn them into magical complete perfect comics angelbabies.  This is the first superhero comic I've ever drawn and I couldn't be happier about it.  Make sure to preorder your copy and enjoy It Girl & The Atomics #10!

ECCC 2013 con sketches

I am now open to take con sketches for Emerald City Comicon!  That means if you are attending the show and you want me to draw something for you, you can request it now to make sure that you get on my list before I run out of slots (which doesn't always happen, but can, so if you're dead set on getting something, send it to me early!).  I don't take commissions outside of conventions anymore, so be aware that this is one of the few ways to get custom artwork from me.
 What I need from you is an email (to with your NAME, which days you will be at ECCC, which CHARACTER you want, and whether you want BLACK AND WHITE or COLOR.  I will send you back a confirmation e-mail and put you on my list.
  • First come, first served
  • Commissions are 9"x12" on 300 series Bristol paper
  • Color commissions will be done in Copic marker this year (you're gonna love it!)
  • Price: $50 for black-and-white, $100 for color (and up--it costs more if you want more than one character or you have any special requests)
  • Payment: Pay me at Emerald City when you pick up your piece.  I'm going to have a smart phone and a card reader, but no guarantees that I will be able to take card, so please bring a check or cash just in case
  • I will try to have pre-ordered commissions done by the beginning of ECCC so you can pick them up any day.  But please let me know if you will only be at the show for certain days, so I can make sure to have it done for you.  Any sketches not done on time will be shipped to you, my treat, for my poor time management :P
  • ***I am no longer drawing likenesses ("draw my girlfriend", "draw my son as Magneto"); I will only draw well-known characters (characters I can Google and find images of).  So, for example, I will happily draw Ron Swanson, but I will not draw you pretending to be Ron Swanson.  I won't draw your pets.  Does that make sense?  I love you all, but likenesses stress me out and I don't want to do them this year
Yay!  Let's do this!
