Darth Vader decided to put a garrison in Bespin anyway? Not if the Guardians of the Galaxy have a say in it!

Want a chance to win an original convention style sketch of you very own?

Here’s how my convention Sketch Retweet Contests work.
During a given convention weekend, you click “RETWEET” on any and/or all of MY sketches hashtagged for that convention weekend on my Twitter account. (Other artist sketches are not part of my Sketch Retweet Contest.)

After the convention, I use a random number generator to find a winner from all those that retweeted any/all of my convention sketches hashtagged for that weekend.

The Prize: 1 (one) 6.5″x10″ (roughly) head sketch in black and white, grayscale Copic marker, or color Copic Marker of a character of your choosing, autographed and personalized to the winner. (Sorry, no personal/creator-owned characters)

I’m at MotorCity Comic Con in Novi, MI, May 15-17, 2015 and I will post my retweet contest sketches with the hashtag: #MCCC2015
The contest runs Friday, May 15 to Monday, May 18, 2105. The winner will be announced sometime on Monday, May 18, 2015.
Any retweets of any convention sketches after the winner has been announced are not valid for the sketch prize.

Click here for more info on my MotorCity Comic Con 2015 convention commission info.

Remember! You DO NOT have to attend the convention to retweet sketches for a chance at the sketch prize. It is open to anyone, anywhere, with a Twitter account!
I thank you all again for your continued support and enjoyment of my work!

Nightcrawler #12 on sale Wed, March 25 and Twitter contest

March 23rd, 2015 No comments

NIGHTCRAWLER #12, the finale to this series,  is on sale this week. It hits the stores on Wednesday, March 25, 2015.
I’m running a sketch retweet contest* on my Twitter account.Click on this link to this TWEET and click “RETWEET” (the little button of two arrows making a square) for a chance to win this original Amazing X-Men #1 sketch cover art piece.
On Friday, March 27, 2015, one (1) “retweeter” of that tweet will be randomly chosen to win this Amazing X-Men #1 sketch cover art piece (autographed and personalized to the winner).

Check out the NIGHTCRAWLER #12  preview on Comic Vine!

And since this is our last issue, I wanted take a moment to say a few things about working on this comic.
I hope you have enjoyed our run on this series. Nightcrawler is one of my favorite X-Men. It meant a lot to me to have this opportunity to draw his adventures for the past year. It was an enormous honor getting to work with X-Men writing legend, Chris Claremont. I started reading his work on Uncanny X-Men when I was a teenager.
Thank you, Chris, for  writing some super fun stories for me to illustrate as well as being so complimentary of my work. It’s been cool getting to spend time with you this past year.
My thanks to my editors, Daniel Ketchum and Xander Jaworey (as well as Nick Lowe who was still in the X-Office at the time this series was coming together), for this amazing opportunity and all their investment of time and guidance in this series and my art.
My utmost appreciation to colorist, Rachelle Rosenberg, who not only delivered top notch colors but was so easy and friendly to work with. Especially with all my little color notes! And to VC’s Cory Petit and Joe Sabino, thank you for hooking this book up with super sweet lettering!

And, finally, my thanks to all of you who took the time and put your hard earned dollars towards this series. I hope you had as much fun reading this series as we had creating it!

Good luck with this last Nightcrawler art giveaway! And I hope you enjoy our series finale!
Todd
