MegaCon 2011 - Bat, & Spider, and Wolf, oh my!

Another pair from my MegaCon Sketch List.

Batman © DC Comics
Spider-Man © Marvel Entertainment

Batman vs. Spider-Man. Nuff said. (Well, more to say actually. Batman was the requested winner)

Artwork © 2011 Gene Gonzales

And Red Riding Hood about to smack down the wolf.

I hope you have been keeping up with my Twitter feed to the right of this post to see photos of sketches I am posting from the convention floor. If not, you are missing quite a few.

This show was a lot of fun. There were several people that came up to tell me that they frequent this blog. That was great to hear. Not everyone posts a comment and that's fine. I do see the numbers of visitors on my counter so I know there are more of you out there, but it's nice to put a smiling face to those numbers.

Thanks to everyone that stopped by my table to chat and buy stuff. I love meeting new people and for an artist who is holed up in a studio day in and day out, conventions provide that nice bit of interaction with the outside world. Starbucks does too but that's different.

And thanks to everyone on the advance sketch list. It's nice to walk into a show and have pieces ready for you. You take the mystery and stress out of wondering if travel and convention expenses will be met. It allows me to relax and enjoy the show. And that helps more than you know.

Speaking of advance sketch lists...I will be opening the list for the Pittsburgh ComicCon tomorrow. And there might be another list in the mix too. Check it out tomorrow.

This is Post #1268

Great work Gene! Red looks ready to be a tasty snack.
And I gotta second that Batman always kicks butt! Especially over ol' web head.
