San Diego is only a few days away, and I apologize for only just now posting about the details. I'll be at booth 2231 (Archaia Studios Press). Julia and I get in to San Diego for preview night and will stay through Sunday...five days of geeky goodness.

I'll have a new color Mouse Guard sketchbook available. 24 pages consisting of past convention sketches colored specifically for the sketchbook. Signed and limited to 300 copies.

I am changing my commission policy. Because I end up taking so many commissions at conventions that I feel like I end up not giving enough attention to attendees stopping by to chat or get their books signed, I am going to be limiting how many I do. I'll take two commissions each day (starting when the floor opens to the public) available for pickup the next day. A 7" x 7" fully inked piece is $150.

I'll also be offering something new this year. I'll be doing sketch cards for $20. (I have a few examples posted here) The images will be per request. And of course, I always do a small sketch when signing a Mouse Guard Fall 1152 hardcover for no charge.

Fan Art:

Two pieces this post. The first comes from Pat who I met briefly at the Motor City convention and my local comic shop. However, it was so brief, that I don't know his full name, what his projects include, or what his site is (Pat I'd be happy to link to your site here). This piece was given to my local shop owner to pass on to me from Pat. Thanks man!!

The second is from a fan named Jamie (whose site appears to be down at the moment. I met Jamie through the forum. She and her fiance stopped by the Toronto con and she gave me this little drawing. The back says "I figured Saxon dreamt of swords at an early age!" Too true Jamie, too true.

David, I really like the waterfowl mount. The idea of having alternate mounts for different locales is great. Looking forward to the RPG and further comics. I'll send you more fan art sometime. Thanks for showing us your work.

Only 300 sketchbooks?! ::sigh::

The mounted mouse on the cover is SWEET! I'm now imagining mice riding fighting cocks. That would be a pretty vicious combo. LOL

The art cards are a fantastic idea. I have a friend who collects and trades - I'll have to pick one up for her at Baltimore.

I hope you and Julia have a fantastic time at SDCC! Say hello to everyone for me. :)

I'm sad that I'll miss out on the sketchbooks! I bet they sell like hot cakes and I wish you all the best at this year's SDCC!

Glad you enjoyed the Saxon card and it was great seeing your Mouse Guard figures in person.

If there were any problems with my site beforehand they seem to be running normal now!

Again great saying hi to you and your wife and having a bit of a chat!

Hey David,
Of course I discover your blog AFTER I've been to COmic Con. I've been a huge fan since issue #1 of MG and I was definately looking for ya. :(

Hope the last day of con is great though, and now I can at least keep up with your work via this blog.
