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 roughs, finished art and many unpublished pieces going back 25 years to my first SW works with Dark Horse Comics right up to my current work with Marvel and some NEW never before seen drawings from SW: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 All of these are unpublished; however, I will be showing quite a few of them in LEADWORKS.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!

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!

Hi Everyone!
I have a fun collectible to offer you. As some of you know, I had the distinct pleasure of doing a variant cover for one of the comics world’s most famous
characters… ARCHIE! Click here to order directly from me now: http://davedorman.com/dormanARCHIE1variant.shtml
ARCHIE COMICS Variant Cover #1 from Dave Dorman for M&M Comics

ARCHIE COMICS Variant Cover #1 from Dave Dorman for M&M Comics

Archie Publications is relaunching “Archie” in July 2015 with a new focus–bringing him and all of our favorite Riverdale characters into the 21st century. While I have been a fan of Archie since I was a kid, he was never a character that I ever thought I would paint. I tend to be more into the sci-fi/fantasy/horror comics genre, and Archie tended towards the more cartoony style. But with this change from Archie’s editors to bring a new look, I took the opportunity from M&M Comics (the retailer I
did the wildly successful Marvel Comics Star Wars #1 Variant cover with) to produce a more realistically painted cover for Archie #1. It was great fun and a great honor to make this comics icon look like he stepped into the real world.
This M&M Retailer Variant will only be available from myself and M&M Comics. The book will hit the stands on July 8; however, I am offering a pre-release sale of the Archie Variant #1 Comic Book. You can order the book directly from me, bagged and boarded, and PERSONALLY AUTOGRAPHED by me. The cost of the book is $15 plus $5 shipping. You can order as many as you like. AND AS AN EXTRA BONUS, only available through direct ordering from me, you will receive an EXCLUSIVE mini-print of the original pencil version of the cover art, also signed by me. This print will not be offered anywhere else. This edition is limited to ONLY 1,750 copies (and I only have a portion of these to sell personally) so please do not hesitate to order if you would like your own copy for your collection.
What: Archie Comics Variant #1 by Dave Dorman, personally autographed by Dave Dorman, bagged and boarded.
Cost: $15 plus $5 Shipping
Limit: None! Order as many as you like!
Extra Bonus Available Here Only: An exclusive mini-print of the original pencil version of the cover art, also autographed by Dave Dorman!
Link to Order: http://davedorman.com/dormanARCHIE1variant.shtml
I will ship the orders out the week of July 13 (as I will be at San Diego Comic Con Booth #4500 during the store release) and you will receive a tracking number when your order goes out. Thanks again for your support of my work and for sharing in this very fun and unexpected project with me!

Dear Friends,

Denise found that Behind the Panels had mentioned my Lantern City variant cover for Boom! Studios as one of the Top Covers for May 2015, so I am sharing that with you here. If you haven’t heard of Lantern City, do check it out – it’s Bruce Boxleitner’s very cool, gorgeously rendered world – a Steampunk action adventure tale. Here is the variant cover art for you. Let me know what you think of it.
