I am considering doing a bunch of character studies–fully rendered pencil drawings–like this one:
for inclusion in my summer sketchbook LEADWORKS. While I have my own favorite characters to draw, I thought I would throw it out to you, my fans, to get some ideas on what you would like to see me draw. If you have suggestions for any character from any media (films, comics, TV, media, etc.) just list them on either of my Facebook Fan Pages in the relevant thread here: http://facebook.com/davedormansstudio
and I will take them under consideration. If I use YOUR suggested character, I will be sure to credit your name with a special thanks on the related page in the new LEADWORKS 2014 book.
Thanks for reading and Happy Hump Day,
- The piece is 9″ x 7″ oil and acrylic on illustration board.
- It is mounted and framed (under UV plexiglass) and ready to hang.
- The price on this piece is $500, including overnight shipping and tracking
- It is available on this page on my website:
- As this is an original painting, there is only one, so the first fan to purchase it from the page gets it.
- The Dark Empire cover featuring the very serious “Dark Luke” figure.
- The first cover to “Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis,” which was the cover that got it all going for me with Dark Horse’s licensing.
- And finally, the BATMAN overlooking Gotham from his gargoyle perch, used as a book cover for “The Batman Murders.”
Dear Family & Friends,
I’m wishing all of my family, friends, and fans in North America a happy and warm Thanksgiving. For my friends and fans around the world, I am very thankful that I am blessed to have you all in my life. Thank you for your support of my work over the years, and I hope I can continue to entertain you for many years to come.
For those of you who were interested in ordering the holiday/winter greeting cards, the DEADLINE IS TOMORROW – I can only accept orders through tomorrow to get them to you on time. Here’s the link to order them:
If you want to share your holiday wishes with a Dorman greeting card hand-signed by me, now’s the time to order! (I did discover some Dungeons & Dragons original art work in my flat files, so I will be posting that online this weekend for your holiday shopping as well.)
Some of you may recall, a year ago, I was literally on death’s door and didn’t realize how critical my post-surgical appendectomy infection really was. I am thankful to my wife Denise, who refused to give up on me despite the idiotic surgeon’s insistence that I was fine after 3 follow-up visits where I was clearly gravely ill, and for for my friend Dr. Sean Murphy and his wife Karen, and my nurse friend Nancy Reilly, who also supported Denise and helped me get the medical attention I really needed. It took 3 months for me to recover and clear the fog from my head, and I am thankful to all of you art directors out there for your patience in waiting for me to heal, and still hiring me for commercial work.
Onward & upwards! Happy Thanksgiving!
I will be doing a children’s learn-to-draw teaching demo event with Barnes & Noble in West Dundee, Illinois (Spring Hill Mall) on Friday, November 22nd from 5 – 7 p.m. This is a chance for children ages 5 – 12 to learn “How to Draw Star Wars Art.” I will be presenting this demo and coaching attendees on their drawing skills. If you live in the Chicagoland area and are looking for a really engaged bookstore offering family-friendly events, check out this particular Barnes & Noble.
In other news, I am continuing my pre-holiday sale on my convention Giclee’ prints – just $25, since I won’t be doing any more conventions until 2014, so buy them here: http://www.davedorman.com/dormanartprints.shtml
Here’s the art demo piece I did for Blick Art Supplies last weekend – a zombie Stormtrooper (photography by Kim Evans Worley):
If you’re in the Midwest and looking for a family-friendly comic book convention, Indy PopCon in Indianapolis May 30 – June 1st will be the show to attend. This new show is run by my friend Larry Zore, of Comics Price Guide fame. If you’re an artist or vendor interested in being a part of Indy PopCon, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Indianapolis is a really cool city to check out, and they have a wonderful children’s museum there.
Remember to check out the critically acclaimed horror comic “The Other Dead” Issue #2 – it’s getting really fun as the tension builds. Issue #3 will be out soon as well. The Other Dead Issue #1 is sold out and reprints are in transition. The Other Dead Synopsis: Louisiana is Ground Zero for the animal kingdom to become zombified, as a Katrina-like hurricane bears down on Louisiana.
I was pleased to hear that the Joliet Star Wars Day Library Event I’ve been participating in the last three years has grown to become the largest worldwide according to Lucasfilm, so that’s great news for the City of Joliet.
I’m in the throes of clearing out my garage this week and I rediscovered my QVC appearance, so I will be digitizing that to throw online for you to have a good laugh. I also found my WEAR-TV (Pensacola ABC affiliate) appearance on BETA, so I’ll have to find someone to reformat it. I’m still missing my SciFi Channel appearance, so if anyone out there has video of it, I’d like to see it again.

Have a great Sunday & thanks for reading,
