Dev Fare TOMORROW, ASU WEST, Glendale, AZ

Tomorrow I’ll be going to Dev Fare! A FREE comic convention run by ASU students. I’m a WILDCAT through-and-through so it’s tough to go there. I really want to wear my Arizona gear but instead I have to bring some holy water and crucifixes (hahahaha). Just kidding!

Love and peace right? Just Bear Down when you’re doing it.

Don’t forget to say hi and suggest an idea for an original. Have a great time!

Going to Dev Fare!

I’m a graduate of the University of Arizona so it’s really hard for me to show at ASU! Kidding. Actually, all rivalry aside, Dev Fare is a free event put on by students. Vanquish Studio went to Dev Con (at the time that’s what it was called) for the first time, I think, in 2015. It is a fun little, free, comic and gaming convention at ASU West.

If you live in the Phoenix metropolitan area and have free time GO CHECK IT OUT!

Would Have Had Gambit…

So I didn’t get to show my new art at Dev Con this past weekend. YES, I called it Dev Con. I think that law suit about using the abbreviated “con” and copyrighting it is ridiculous.  Anyway, I had finished Gambit but didn’t get to show him off. Now, I really like him as a character when I started reading X-Men (back in the 90’s!) He could charge objects with an energy blast. He always kept a deck of cards in his pocket because they were small, convenient, and plentiful for someone with that particular power – he has 52 charges! I also liked his French/ Cajun accent when he spoke to Rogue. I was soooo upset when the Bryan Singer movies hooked-up Rogue with Iceman! Everyone knows the eternal love struggle in the comics is between Rogue and Gambit. It’s classic forelorn love. Anyway, he was my favorite X-Man and from the requests at comic conventions, a lot of other people like him as well. So I had to draw him. I did have a slight issue with the black eyes. When my manager saw them she freaked out but I explained that Gambit has mutated eyes. That’s one subtle thing about him that can be unsettling. He really can’t hide that he’s a mutant. And his eyes are red which is an emotionally charged color in our society. This was a challenge but fun to draw and I hope you like it.
