Here is the link to the new Battlestar Galactica print published by ANOVOS, “Hangar Deck Scramble,” which I painted for a limited edition fine art lithograph for San Diego Comic-Con. The lithograph is limited to 250 signed and numbered, so please place your order soon by clicking here: http://www.davedorman.com/bsgprint.shtml – those who order directly from me will receive a FREE drawing. The cost on these prints is $110 plus shipping.
Additionally, I will be appearing at Cyphan this weekend at the Hyatt in Rosemont , IL (next door to the convention center where Wizard World is held). This is a fun, young, fan-run con that I really want to see succeed. Cyphan is in its third year now, and embraces science fiction, horror and fantasy.
On a side note, I send my condolences to the victims and their survivors from the Aurora, Colorado tragedy. I am especially proud of the fan community for pulling together and supporting these people emotionally and financially. I know that writer Steve Niles posted a charity that is helping these people called GivingFirst.org and here is the link: https://givingfirst.org/index.php?section=content&action=dynamic&cmsID=36, and Comics Price Guide is selling t-shirts for $20 to help them as well. Yes, I bought one. I hope you do, too. Here is the link to the t-shirts: http://www.comicspriceguide.com/shirt.aspx
I think Christian Bale and his wife should be commended for comforting the survivors and their families. He’s a terrific actor and he’s proven he’s a stand-up human being.
My writer friend John Ostrander and I were interviewed by a Richmond, VA CBS affiliate TV station Monday regarding a Batman story John wrote long ago. I did the cover art. That interview is here: http://wtvr.com/2012/07/24/holmberg-the-story-behind-batman-and-robins-fight-for-gun-control-in-va/
I did an interview with Comics Price Guide during Comic-Con, and you can see that at http://facebook.com/davedormanfanpage.
Thanks as always for reading and I will be checking back in soon.
Since StarWars.com has posted the news and I’m no longer under a gag order, I’m pleased to announce that yes, I am doing the Darth Maul covers for the new Dark Horse series Tom Taylor is writing. He’s a great writer, so you’re sure to be entertained, and as you can see, I’m having a total blast painting these covers! This picture was taken at Acme Design this past Saturday by my friend Thomas James Spanos (a 501st Midwest Garrison member who poses a lot for my Star Wars art):

To my knowledge, this is the first time a comic book artist has ever done such an event, so you’re also making pop culture history by joining in on the fun!
Here are the links to bid on the eBay auction – daylight is burning, so bid today or miss out! http://bit.ly/HuK92P and http://bit.ly/I8ylqm. So far, the winners are coming in from California, Iowa, Texas and Michigan. Join us!
Since many of you are coming into town for C2E2, Rotofugi has graciously offered to host a second “Opening Night” of my Pi Ala Mode one-man gallery show at their gallery in Chicago. I will be there at Rotofugi on Friday, April 13th from 7:30 – 9:30 p.m. if you would like a personalized tour of my one-man show. It’s about a $25 cab ride from McCormick Place, but you can ALSO shop in Rotofugi – the world’s coolest designer toy store while you’re checking out my gallery show, so that’s an added bonus!
I have a major announcement that I’m personally very excited about for C2E2 with limited edition, Japanese kaiju/monster designer toy company MaxToyCo owner Mark Nagata, so once Denise has the press release done, I will post it here.
Thanks, as always, for your interest and support of my work.
