so New York Comic Con was almost a month ago and we’ve all been playing catch-up from the busy con season we just had. catching up on work, catching up on family times, catching up on lots of things. NYCC has always been an incredible show and this year it did not disappoint. we met some new people, saw some familiar faces, and just had a blast. New York City is tough to deal with if you’re not familiar but other than that, the show is definitely worth the trip. these are just some of the pics from our time at NYCC. the rest are on our ID Facebook page. follow the link and take a look! and if u haven’t already done so, give our page a LIKE so u can be up to date on our shenanigans!

we’re gearing up to head out to the big apple for east coast’s largest comic con, NEW YORK COMIC CON!be sure to stop at our tables in artist alley – TABLES P3-P4 and snag some cool ID Studios art. this is the last con of the year that all 4 members of the studio will be there – Peng-Peng, theFranchize, Flash, and Domo. we’ll have prints, books, comics and original pages/art for sale. and of course, we’ll be doing convention commissions. if you plan on getting a commission, be sure to come by early and put your name on the list. this con is so big that our lists get pretty full pretty quickly each day.
we’ve even participated in NYCC’s charity auction to benefit St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital. Peng donated the La Luna piece inspired by one of Pixar’s animated shorts. this is mixed media with watercolor, colored pencils, copic markers, and ink. theFranchize donated the original pinup art of his Batman pinup as well as the latest Superman that he drew, along with a copy of the print. the auction is being held on Saturday night, Oct. 12th. for more info on the auction, check out NYCC’s website
we couldn’t be more excited if we tried. see you all there! ~peng
the cons are coming! they’re pretty much here! this weekend starts the last onslaught of comic cons of the year. it’s going to be fast, maybe even a little furious. i’d like to promise that i’ll keep this blog updated each week with con pics but i don’t want to disappoint. there’s only so many hours in a day unfortunately.
still, we start this weekend off with BALTIMORE COMIC CON! this is our hometown con that we’ve been attending practically every year since our little studio has formed and this year is no different. it’s this Saturday – Sunday Sept. 7-8. if you’re in the area, come on out and say HI to us in the Artist Alley! all four members [Flash, theFranchize, Peng-Peng, and Domo] will be there at tables A85-A86! we always have a blast at this show and we’re looking forward to meeting new people as well as seeing familiar faces. we’ll have NEW prints, more artbooks, and drawing commissions all weekend long. and while ur there, be sure to wish theFranchize luck and keep ur fingers & toes crossed that he wins his Harvey nomination on Saturday!
our very own Dominike “Domo” Stanton has a brand new show on FX’s brand new sister network FXX! Domo is the Lead Designer for the show – Chozen. it’s produced by the team that brings you HBO’s Eastbound & Down and features the voice of Bobby Moynihan (SNL) as the lead character. the comedy animated series is about a gay white rapper – but who cares! we get to see Domo’s drawings come alive on TV! FXX launches in September and Chozen will join other shows like It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell.
now that we’re all back in our respective states and rested, we have some photos of our trip out to San Diego on our Facebook page. head on over to https://www.facebook.com/IdentityComicsStudio to see our pictures. and while ur there, go ahead and give it a LIKE! that way u can keep up with our news, projects, and comic con shenanigans.
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.
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!
also at SDCC, Bryan “Flash” Turner will sitting at the BOOM! booth to do signings of his awesome Adventure Time/Candy Capers SDCC-Exclusive covers! when he’s not signing, he’ll be running around the con so you snag your signatures on Adventure Time and FVZ books while he’s there! Signing schedule –
Friday 7/19 from 5:30p – 6:30p
Saturday 7/20 from 1:30p – 2:30p
Sunday 7/21 from 2p – 3p
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. BUTtheFranchize, Flash, and Peng-Pengare 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
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!)
well, we’re headed to Heroes Con today! some are flying, some are driving – all towards Charlotte, NC for a fun weekend! this year, we’re mixing it up for people. our ID Comics Studios tables in artist alley are 218/219.Flash will be at the table selling all our prints, books, and writing down commissions for all of us. you can find theFranchize and Peng-Peng at the BOOM! Studios booth towards the center of the convention center doing Fanboys Vs. Zombies and Adventure Time sketches all weekend long! and it looks like Domo has a table with Sttudio Revolver at 1812. so we are all around the convention!
come by the ID Studios table and pick up stuff! see u fantastic kids there! ~peng
is that enough acronyms for ya? 😉 we’re finally recovering from a very long trip to Chicago for C2E2 followed by an amazing Free Comic Book Day event at Third Eye Comics in Annapolis, MD. both events were great and we had a blast!
C2E2 was a much better con for us this year. TheFranchize and Flash got to be up on the center stage drawing for the people. we got to contribute pieces to the art auction that apparently raised over $10K collectively for St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital. Peng-Peng got to sit at the Girls Drawin Girls table surrounded by an amazing collection of art by lovely ladies all around the world. and it was one of only a handful of times we were at a con with our 4th member, Domo. always great to have the whole team together. the fan responses were great and we had a great time drawing for people. here are some pics from our time there.
Free Comic Book Day at Third Eye Comics in Annapolis, MD was an incredible experience. we’ve never seen so many people lined up to get into a comic shop. they have some of the best and loyal patrons, that’s for certain. probably due to the awesomeness of the folks that run the shop. we were set up in a tent and signed lots of Fanboys Vs Zombies graphic novels and NFL Rush Zone comics. we even signed a few copies of Supurbia #1 with theFranchize and Peng-Peng’s exclusive cover for it. we were in there with the likes of Gail Simone, Joelle Jones, Cullen Bunn, and Billy Martin. we got to meet 2 out of the 3 ladies of comicosity.com’s The Hangout who apparently are huge fans of FVZ!
only just 3 days after Awesome Con DC, we’re heading out to Chicago for C2E2! come by and check us out!
All 4 ID Studios members will be in ARTIST ALLEY TABLES I12 – I13!!! we’ll have prints, mini artbooks, Fanboys Vs Zombies issues, Adventure Time w/ Fionna & Cake #1 exclusive cover, and whatever commissions people want us to draw.
Peng-Peng will also be at the Girls Drawin Girls booth for a couple of hours Friday and Saturday (around 2p-ish) to help her fellow art ladies! check her work out as well as other amazing talented ladies at TABLE E7.
