mo’ cons

commissions from Hero Bot Con 2013
commissions from Hero Bot Con 2013

we just returned from Horseheads, NY for HERO BOT CON this past weekend. this coming weekend we’ll be headed out to PITTSBURGH COMIC CON! so many cons, so little time to update blogs. here are pics of the commissions drawn at this weekend’s convention. through an unforeseen turn of events, Flash wasn’t able to make it to Hero Bot Con so it was just Peng-Peng and theFranchize holdin’ it down. the con organizers were so great to us and we couldn’t be more grateful for the fun weekend.

if you’re in the Pittsburgh area this weekend, stop on by the PITTSBURGH COMIC CON‘s Artist Alley and say HEY to the crew! Flash, Peng-Peng, and theFranchize are all scheduled to be there this weekend and we’re excited to make the trip back to the show.  ~peng

Comicosity.com has considered it one of the top 5 releases of the week! (you can view their article on it here – http://www.comicosity.com/trade-waiting-week-of-september-11-2013/) here’s what they say –

Why to watch for it: Jerry Gaylord was just nominated for a Harvey and his solid work can be found all over this volume of Fanboys Vs. Zombies. This is wacky and full of fun, the way comics should be.

ready for SDCC?

all of us at ID Studios are gearing up for the biggest comic con that any of us have ever been to. you may have heard of it, it’s called SAN DIEGO COMIC CON! all 4 members will actually be there, but we won’t have a table at artist alley or anything. some are going for their first time, some are going to work, but all are going cuz SDCC is awesome!

couple of announcements as we ready up for the show.

firstly, Red Circle Comics’ New Crusaders: Legacy book has just hit shelves. theFranchize did some pages in there so you can go to your local comic shop and snag your copy. or you can order one online through Red Circle’s website – http://redcirclecomics.com/2013/07/10/new-crusaders-legacy-on-sale-today/

what with the BOOM/Archaia merge done before SDCC, they’ve just announced that both companies will have 1 booth on the con floor – BOOTH 2229. which means the booth will be brimming with some of the best titles outside of “the big 2.” both theFranchize AND Peng-Peng will once again be drawing on sketch covers the entire show at the BOOM booth. theFranchize will be drawing zombie-fied versions of fans of Fanboys Vs. Zombies while Peng-Peng will be on the all-ages side drawing Adventure Time sketch covers with other artists. be sure to get on the lists early because if it’s anything like what it was last year, the lines will be BA-NAY-NAYS!

since the ID Studios members will not be sitting in Artist Alley and are doing sketch covers for BOOM all weekend, they won’t be able to take commissions at the show. BUT theFranchize, Flash, and Peng-Peng are all opening up their pre-con commission lists so that you can pick up your personal commissions from them while they’re at the booth. head on over to their respective blogs for more info or tweet to each of them.

PHEW! i think that’s finally all folks! we’re all so excited for San Diego and we’re trying to meet some deadlines before we leave. if anyone is heading out the con, i hope we see some of you at the BOOM booth or just around the con floor.   ~peng

heroes con wrap up

now that we’ve been home for more than 3 days straight, we can go back to showing our social outlets some TLC. the ID Studios crew were finally all under one roof at the same time in Charlotte, NC for Heroes Comic Con! this hasn’t happened since C2E2 in Chicago, IL. except this time, we were spread out across the entire convention center. Flash was on one side of the convention manning the ID Studios booth like a champ. Domo was on the other end with his Studio Revolver mates. Peng-Peng and theFranchize were in the center at the BOOM Studios booth drawing sketches. it was certainly weird being all split up, even our fans told us it just didn’t feel right not having us all in the same spot. we tend to agree and we will avoid that same situation again in the future. we made the best of an awkward situation and had to just send some fans all across the con floor to get to all of us. sorry guys!

there were a lot of Adventure Time drawings done, and even more quick sketches for the kids who had those con passports. while at the Boom booth, Peng-Peng was interviewed by the guys of Comics Alternative about working on Adventure Time. check out the interview of her, as well as other comic creators from the con, on their podcast at http://comicsalternative.com/2013/06/13/episode-41-1/.  (her interview starts at the 39-minute mark.) GIVE IT A LISTEN!

we got to see some familiar fellow artists and met some new ones as well. specifically the lovely ladies Sara Woolley and Laura Lee Gulledge – awesome ladies with even more awesome art styles. if u don’t know about em, u should! and if u were there hangin out at the karaoke bar, then u would’ve been treated to theFranchize and Flash shuttin the place down with some Montell Jordan. fun times as usual at Heroes. (unfortunately, all of our collective cellphones were dying by the time the karaoke-ing happened so no photos. d’oh!)

here are pics from the weekend!

fun times at Heroes Con 2013!
