Dear Friends,

Punxsutawney Phil tells me Spring is just around the corner!  And with Spring comes the beginning of CONVENTION SEASON. I will be doing at least one show per month in 2016, so please keep your browser set here for updates.

And no, that goofy guy Scott Roush from the Bleeding Cool News article is NOT my rep (thanks for the heads up, Rich Johnston!), nor is he booking me at any conventions. For the record, my only booking agents are Denise McDonald Dorman of WriteBrain Media and Mike Alexandropoulos.

My first show of the year will take me to Pensacola, Florida for PENSACONFebruary 19th – 21st. I will have prints and books for sale, and as always my autograph is FREE!

I’ve just produced a special edition of my sketchbook series LEADWORKS. This year I will be doing a Star Wars-centric edition. This book will feature all pencil drawings.. roughs, finished art and many unpublished pieces going back 25 years to my first SW works with Dark Horse Comics right up to my current work with Marvel and some NEW never before seen drawings from SW: The Force Awakens.

LEADWORKS by Dave Dorman, Ltd. Edition

LEADWORKS by Dave Dorman, Ltd. Edition

This special book will be 36 pages (previous editions were 24 pages) with a card stock cover and high quality interior pages to show off the detail in the pencil renderings. It is 5.5″ x 8.5″ same size as previous editions. For those of you who love Adult Coloring Books, here’s your chance to color my work! I’d love to see what you do with it and I hope you share it here!

Unlike the previous editions, I will be doing a LIMITED SIGNED AND NUMBERED run of this book, limited to 400 copies. This will be the only version I will be printing. However, I am not raising the price. It will remain at $20.00 (postage included, worldwide). The book will be ready to ship the 3rd week of February.

You can order your copy at this link on my website http://www.davedorman.com/leadworks3.shtml (If you would like to order more than one, the Paypal cart will let you choose how many you would like).

I have done quite a few new drawings for myself featuring charaters and elements from the new Star Wars film SW: The Force Awakens. All of these are unpublished; however, I will be showing quite a few of them in LEADWORKS.
I am putting a few of my pencils sketches up for sale right now so you can get a sneak preview of my new art… AND you can add it to your collection!

#MTFBWY!!!
The excitement runs high in our house as my son Jack and I get ready to go see Star Wars: The Force Awakens tonight! Oh…did you not know there was a new Star Wars movie coming out this weekend? It’s true!!! And we hope the force is strong with J.J. Abrams and company. TomorrowFriday the 18th, I will be doing a video review for my son’s YouTube channel. It will be fun, and I PROMISE that it will be spoiler free!
Here is a link to a recent interview I did with Jamie and Justin at  Geek Dad regarding my Star Wars art career: http://geekdad.com/2015/12/gbbp-42-dave-dorman/
Quite a number of you have asked if I was going to be painting any art for the new Star Wars film or maybe even doing a fan movie poster piece. While I have not produced any licensed work for the film, obviously the imagery screams for me to do something. I would love to do a movie poster style piece but I felt I could not do the film justice until I had seen it. So now that I am about to experience it tonight, don’t be surprised if you see a poster-type piece done in the near future.

However, I have been trying to work on two pieces these past couple of months. Unfortunately, I could not find time to finish them in time for the movie premiere. I will continue working on these over the holidays and will share them with you when they are complete. The first is a portrait of Rey and BB8 on the planet of Jakku. The second piece I am having fun with. It is taken from the very famous line in the first movie (the fourth, for you completists) Star Wars: A New Hope. The title of this piece: “Is This the Droid We are Looking For?” Hope you like the sneak peek of this fun, upcoming art:

Posted in Blog, Blogger, Blogging, Chicago Comic Book Artists, Christmas Gifts, Collectibles, Collections, Collectors, Comic Book Art, Comic Book Artist, Comic Book Convention, Comic Book Cover Art, Comic Books, Darth Vader, DAVE DORMAN ART FOR SALE, DAVE DORMAN NEWS, Entertainment, Fan Culture, Geek, Geek Culture, Holiday Gifts, Illustration, Nerd Culture, Pop Culture, Star Wars with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 31, 2015 by DaveandDeniseDorman

Happy Halloween everyone!! No Tricks, Just TREATS today… and thru’ the weekend!

Starting today,  I will be offering for PRE-SALE two very anticipated upcoming Dorman cover Variants. These variants are being offered in 2 forms: A full color painted version and a a black and white pencil version. And now… THE REVEAL!

Vader Down!

Vader Down!

The Dark Knight!

The Dark Knight 3!

I once again have worked with M&M Comics in San Antonio, producing variant covers for two of the most anticipated books of the season... Marvel’s VADER DOWN and DC Comics’ DARK KNIGHT 3.

I am offering these for presale now with the release of DK3 on Nov. 11th and VADER DOWN on Nov. 25.

The main reason I am offering these together at this time is to allow you, my valued fans, the opportunity to make your purchases wisely with the holiday season coming up quickly , and not be surprised by a new book coming up that you might not be able to afford because you bought another book earlier. These are the last set of variants I will be producing thru’ the end of the year, so there will be no other Dorman variants upcoming after these (at least for now)

I am offering the books as individual purchases, sets of each title, or a complete set of the 4 books at a discounted price. The pricing is as follows (includes shipping and tracking):

DARK KNIGHT 3 Color Variant $15.00
DARK KNIGHT 3 Pencil Variant $25.00

VADER DOWN  Color Variant $15.00
VADER DOWN  Pencil Variant $25.00

VADER DOWN Both books $30.00
DARK KNIGHT 3 Both books $30.00

VADER DOWN & DARK KNIGHT 3 Full set of 4 books $60.00

AND… as a special HALLOWEEN TREAT (and extended thru’ my son Jack’s birthday,… the boy needs new shoes) all orders of the full set of 4 books will get a copy of my ARCHIE # 1 Variant AND my SPIDER-GWEN #1 variant for FREE!!! 6 books variants for $60.00!! Now THAT’s a treat if I ever heard one!

All books will be signed by me, of course. They will be bagged and boarded unopened directly from the distributor. Books will be sent out by me the week after they hit the stands; however, if you ordered the set of 4, I will send them out after VADER DOWN is released (the week of Nov.30)

Here’s the order page:

Thanks again for all your support of my work and I hope everyone has a safe HALLOWEEN and continued health and safety through the upcoming holidays!

Ladies and Gentlemen,
I hope to see many of you this weekend at New York Comic-Con! And now, I’d like to introduce you to my FIRST Marvel Superhero cover! 
Spider Gwen by Dave Dorman

                          Spider-Gwen #1 by Dave Dorman

This is the cover for Spider-Gwen #1, hitting the shelves next Wednesday, Oct.14. While I have been a fan of Marvel’s since the late 1960s, and I have produced some fun trading cards and other material for them, I have never done a cover for any of their Superhero books. Now that has changed. I have collaborated again with M&M Comics in San Antonio to produce a variant cover for Spider-Gwen #1. It was great fun painting this new and popular character, and I hope it will open the door to doing more with Marvel.
I am offering sales of this book directly thru’ me, as this is a RETAILER VARIANT and will NOT be distributed nationally thru’ your local bookstore. This #1 edition has a print run of ONLY 1,500 copies. This will not be reprinted and the limitation makes it a very desirable collectible.  Orders directly from me include:
  • SIGNED by me, Dave Dorman
  • They will be bagged and boarded
  • They will be sent with insurance and tracking.
  • The cost of this book  is just $15.00, INCLUDING shipping.
You can order as many copies as you like, but I cannot offer a discount for multiple orders. Please click here now to order SPIDER-GWEN #1 with the Dave Dorman cover art! http://www.davedorman.com/spidergwen1variant.shtml

DAVE DORMAN’S “AMERICAN HERO 3” GI Joe Art BOOK COMING SOON!

Posted in Collectibles, Collections, Collectors, Comic Book Art, Comic Book Artist, Comic Book Cover Art, DAVE DORMAN ART FOR SALE, DAVE DORMAN NEWS, Entertainment, Fan Culture, Geek, Geek Culture, Hasbro, Nerd Culture, Toys with tags , , , , , , , , , , on September 1, 2015 by DaveandDeniseDorman
Dear Friends,
 At the end of September 2015, I will be publishing the final volume of my AMERICAN HERO Series. AMERICAN HERO 3 will be shipping during the 3rd week of September. This is the matching edition to the previous books, in size and in design.  This will most likely be the last of these books, as I have searched my private archives and can no longer find additional examples to show. I hope you all enjoy this final edition!   
To order AMERICAN HERO 3 please click on this link to my webpage: http://www.davedorman.com/americanhero3.shtml
For those not familiar with my AMERICAN HERO books, here is a brief synopsis: Between the mid 1980s thru the early ’90s, I had the great pleasure of working with Hasbro toys, producing art for in-house use in helping to create the design of GI Joe action figures. This work was for production only and not intended for reproduction, promotion, or packaging. I have had many fans over the years ask about this art. Because there is continued interest to this day to see these unpublished pieces, I have taken your wishes into consideration and decided to publish some of these in a small book. While there have been a few articles in collector’s magazines and online interviews about this work, and a few scattered publications of a couple of pieces, this will be the first real collection of my Hasbro work from this time period.
The art featured in the books are full color paintings produced to make the GI Joe toy figures look as they would in real life. I am also featuring some of the pencil preliminary work that went into my painting preparation. The art covers both Joe and Cobra, and some variations of uniforms not produced. I have kept film of these works in my personal archives, as I do with all of my artwork, and so the reproduction of this art is the best you will find.
The book is 6″ x 9″ full color with card stock cover, 24 pages including cover.  All copies are signed by the artist, me, Dave Dorman.
 •Price is $20.00 (plus$5.00 postage worldwide).
 •Please use the PAYPAL button to order.
To order AMERICAN HERO 3 please click on this link to my webpage: http://www.davedorman.com/americanhero3.shtml
I am also offering, for a LIMITED TIME ONLY,  the first two volumes of this GI JOE Art Book series at a DISCOUNTED price. Both Books 1 and 2 are being offered at $10.00 each (plus shipping).  These can ordered from my webpage at  www.davedorman.com/americanhero1-2SALE.shtm
 As always, thank you so much for your support of this project.
Dave.
