Hi All,
I have been pretty busy on a number of projects lately; unfortunately most of them I cannot talk about at the moment. However, one thing I can say is that you will be seeing more of my work thru’ Marvel Comics in the months to come! So keep your browser locked on target here and on my Facebook pages for more info as I am able to release them. (One of the projects I never thought I would do… but I may get a chance to paint a comics iconic character soon that I have never done before, and that is RARE!!)
Today I am posting a group of pencil artworks for sale. I have had a lot of collectors asking if my Pencil art from Star Wars #1 and Darth Vader #2 will be for sale. Well, here they are! These are my final pencils before I go to painting, showing all of the detail I need to render the image in oils and acrylics. You can find this sale on this page of my website–link here:

Dear Friends,
I have a number of pencil pieces of art I am selling this time around. I did these pieces for myself to do more pencil work and practice texture and  detailing. These are all listed on this webpage with the sizes and prices. There is a Paypal button for each as well. These are one-of-a-kind pieces of art, so if you see something you like, don’t hesitate too long– it may be gone when you return. Thanks so much for looking and for your continued support of my work. Thank you also, to those of you who have sent your condolences on the passing of my wife Denise’s dad.

Dear Friends,
One of many DAVE DORMAN STAR WARS ARTIST PROOFS ON SALE NOW.

One of many DAVE DORMAN STAR WARS ARTIST PROOFS ON SALE NOW.

For those that responded to my last blog and Facebook posting, I appreciate your kind words and support. While it was disheartening to get that news, it will not be my last opportunity to create new Star Wars art. Keep your bookmarks here for coming news of more projects ahead!
As most of you know by now, I will not be attending SW Celebration 7 next year. I had planned on having a sale at Celebration of what was left of my Artist Proofs of previous year’s Celebration prints, along with the new exclusive print. Since that isn’t happening, and I’ve had a lot of fans and collectors asking if I was going to have a Holiday Print Sale this year, I’ve decided to hold it now. Here is the link to my Star Wars Holiday Prints Sale:
http://www.davedorman.com/2014swprintsforsale.shtml
Each print on the webpage has a PayPal button for ordering and if you want to buy more than one it will make a shopping cart for you. **Shipping is FREE worldwide.**
I am now offering the last of my Artist Proofs at a substantial discount for a limited time (I will take this sale down on Dec. 31st, so those who have gift funds after the holidays that they would like to spend here may do so before the sale ends.)
All Star Wars Dave Dorman Prints You Purchase Will Be:
  • Signed By Me
  • Marked an an A/P (Artist’s Proof).
  • I will be happy to personalize the prints for you as well. (You can leave a note on the Paypal purchase form).
  • Extra Bonus–As a thank you for all your support over the years, I will add small remarque (original pencil drawing) on every print that is ordered at no extra charge.
  • Sent out using Paypal’s shipping, which will include a notification to you of when your order shipped and a tracking number to follow your shipment.
  • All orders in the U.S. made before Dec. 19 will get to you before Christmas.
 I only have a limited number of these prints left, and this sale may be the last time some or most of these will be available.
AND A RARE FIND: I also have one more newly discovered print from my private collection to offer for the first time on my webpage. This is “Knockin on Jabba’s Door” — a small 11×14 print produced as an incentive for purchasing the now out-of-print “Jabba’s Palace ” print.
So go ahead and check out the page. I hope you find something you like that might brightens your holidays, birthday, or special occasion, or those of your loved ones.
Thank you again for all of your support of my work over the years. Every smile and handshake at a show, or email or private message on Facebook, LinkedIn or Twitter unexpectedly saying you like my work, makes my enjoyment of this work grow more and more.
As always, my own I.P., the WASTED LANDS OMNIBUS book (published by Magnetic-Press) special gift offer is still available, and that link is here:

Be Well, All, #MTFBWY, and please Tweet out #DaveDormanPrintSale!

Dear Friends,

 

Me at Discovery Museum Last Year Lecturing On How I Create STAR WARS Art

Me at Discovery Museum Last Year Lecturing On How I Create STAR WARS Art

This next weekend on Saturday October 4th from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m., I will be appearing at the Discovery World Museum in Milwaukee for STAR WARS DAY. Last year it was an amazing event supported by the 501st Legion of Star Wars Cosplayers (of which Denise and I are honorary members) and I know it will be again this year. I will be doing two presentations, explaining my approach to creating my STAR WARS art in the theater there, and I hope you can attend one if you’re there. (No, Denise will not be with me this year – she has client obligations in Northwest Florida).
I want to thank all of you out there who stepped up and supported Denise and me this past week during the whole crazy online controversy. You who respectfully spoke up mean a lot to us both. A lot of good came out of this controversy. It ignited back channel conversations between me and my colleagues, me and Con organizers, and of course, the meaningful viewpoints from you, the fans. If you’re scratching your heads with no idea what I’m referencing, here’s a link to Denise’s interview with Comic Vine journalist Mat Elfring, which ended up on Yahoo! News: 
 
http://bit.ly/DD_on_YahooNews
Only a few writers showed true journalistic integrity and research this past week, and I applaud those who did. Rob Salkowitz of iCv2Mat Elfring of Comic Vine and Heidi McDonald of The Beat are three that come to mind. I also appreciated the talented Gail Simone’s professionalism in her mea culpa, and her willingness to revisit the real story. In the end, I worry for the future of social media, the future of  journalism, and I worry for the future of many readers out there who seem blinded to critical thinking. As our close friend, sometimes business partner and fellow artist Charlie Athanas said, “Oh, hive mind. We should all watch Forbidden Planet and learn that this collective id thing can be really dangerous. Then shut down our computers and go have a drink with some friends.” Well said, Charlie. Denise plans to share the best ideas and suggestions she’s received about how we as creatives and exhibitors can improve sales and our Con experiences from the many who commented on her blog, ComicBookWife.com, so watch for that.
On Wednesday Denise and I will be guests of Chicago comics advocate and podcaster Wendi Freeman and her podcast Double Page Spread. I will post a link here when it’s up, but here’s a link to Wendi’s past podcasts – check them out: 
http://bitly.com/DoublePageSpreadPodcast
Many of you know I’m a big #MMO #SWTOR gamer. I did a really fun Ootinicast Twitch TV interview this week about my Star Wars: The Old Republic gaming and my STAR WARS art with co-host Ander (aka Redna), so here is a link to that interview for you:

I hope to see everyone soon. As always, thanks for reading,
Dave.

Happy Independence Day! Updates on Dave Dorman Appearances and our Heavy Metal Revisited Documentary

Posted in Chicago Comic Book Artists, Collectibles, Collections, Collectors, Comic Book Art, Comic Book Artist, Comic Book Convention, Comic Book Cover Art, Comic Books, DAVE DORMAN ART FOR SALE, DAVE DORMAN NEWS, Denise Dorman, Entertainment, Fan Culture, Geek, Geek Culture, Illustration, Lucasfilm, Military, Military Veterans, Nerd Culture, Painting, Pop Culture, Star Wars, Wasted Lands, WriteBrain Media with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 4, 2014 by DaveandDeniseDorman

Hi Everybody,

Happy Independence Day!

Happy Independence Day!

For those of you in the U.S. who are following me, I hope you’re having a Happy Independence Day! We are celebrating with friends tonight and looking forward to taking a few hours off (yes, we solopreneurs are both working today). I will always believe the United States is exceptional and the greatest nation on this planet, despite many citizens and politicians’ very best attempts to collapse our system from within. I am hoping that those who reproduce and vote every four years are awakened, paying very close attention, and will vote in future politicians who genuinely value our U.S. Constitution, our freedom, and our liberty. I also encourage you to do whatever you can to help our Wounded Warriors and our military families, who suffer from the uninformed, unwitting whims of a highly military unfriendly government. What has gone down in the Veterans’ Administration over the past several decades is unforgivable and that guilt is on both sides of the political aisle. I mourn for every single military family who has lost a loved one due to the greed and stupidity of those in charge at the V.A.

For those of you who haven’t seen it, here is a link to my interview on Chicago’s WTTW last week regarding the new Lucasfilm Museum of Narrative Arts that Chicago was awarded by George Lucashttp://chicagotonight.wttw.com/tags/dave-dorman (just click on the photo of my art).

We are looking forward to the new museum and I personally am eager to see George’s massive collection of my favorite illustrators from the 20th Century. Somehow, people think Norman Rockwell is the only one George collects. I guess they are just unaware that there are other illustration giants out there.

HEAVY METAL REVISITED Documentary News

In other news, our HEAVY METAL REVISITED documentary with Evan Beloff and Frederic Bohbot of Bunbury Films is in production, and I hope to grab some footage in Austin, TX next week of Harry Knowles and Bernie Wrightson (and if we get very lucky, Robert Rodriguez). Here’s a an older video trailer to give you a feel for what we’ve been working on over the past several years. http://vimeo.com/11669127

Last Friday Mark Voss and our production team did a really fun interview with Sammy Hagar, who co-wrote the theme song HEAVY METAL with Jim Peterik, and Sammy had some surprising things to say.

As I mentioned, next week I will be in Austin, TX for Capital City Con, so I look forward to seeing my Texas friends there. I will have plenty of art for everyone to buy, but I tend to sell out quickly, so please be sure to hit me up on Day 1.

In the next few months you’ll see some changes to my website as I transfer over to a new fan management system with StageBloc.com – they have a terrific all-in-one solution of eCommerce, blogging, social media outreach and fan club management that will better serve you, my fans, and help me make more informed decisions on which products you want to see more of, and where you’d like me to appear for shows.

Dear Friends,

 

Original Art Price: $2,000. Dave Dorman Darth Maul cover for Dark Horse Comics

Dave Dorman’s Darth Maul cover art for Dark Horse Comics

If you’ve been missing seeing my Star Wars art, be sure to watch CHICAGO TONIGHT on Channel 11 WTTW in Chicago tomorrow night at 7:20 p.m. We will be talking about my Star Wars art career, my longtime relationship with Lucasfilm, Dark Horse Comics, and the importance and cultural impact of the new Lucas Museum of Narrative Art--or as we fans call it–“The! New! Star Wars Museum! In! Chicago!” George Lucas and his wife Mellody Hobson have been enormously generous to the City of Chicago already, donating millions of dollars to our children’s educations, and I am very happy they recognize the outpouring of love and enormous respect Chicago has for them both.

See you tomorrow in TV Land!

If you can, please “Like” my Facebook Fan Pages & follow me on social media. They are as follows:

And a special thanks to WriteBrain Media–the best publicist/wife a guy could have for booking this one for me, and to Jock Hedblade, our friend and media trainer, who just won his 3rd Emmy Award today.

Dear Friends,

I had a GREAT time at the DISCOVERY MUSEUM in Milwaukee with my 501st friends last weekend teaching people how I do what I do. (And yes, I AM available to give this lecture, teach demos, and do Q&As for your large group or students – for inquiries please contact my wife/publicist denise@writebrainmedia.com). Here’s an image from my lecture:

Me teaching how I created this art at DISCOVERY MUSEUM, MILWAUKEE

Tomorrow through Sunday: I will be at Detroit Fanfare, and I will be a presenter for the Shel Dorf Awards, so hopefully I’ll catch up with many of you at either event. Here’s a link for more information:  http://detroitfanfare.com/

Saturday November 2nd:  I will be teaching an art demo at BLICK ART SUPPLY in Wheaton, IL. This makes up for the one I had to miss earlier this fall.

This day also marks the grand opening of my friend J. Anthony Kosar’s MALEFICIUM DARK ART Exhibiton: http://www.kosartgallery.com/2013-maleficium-dark-art-exhibition.html - the grand opening is 1 p.m. – 10 p.m. on the 2nd, but the exhibit is available to tour by appointment only from 11/2 – 11/30.  You may recognize Anthony as he was a winner on last season’s SYFY show, FACE OFF. His f/x makeup is incredible, and if you are interested in learning from him, he teaches classes! Check him out1

Saturday November 3rd: Happy Diwali to my many Indian friends, and we celebrate my son’s 9th Birthday!

For a few weeks in November and possibly into December, things will be a little nutty here as I’m having a new studio built over the garage, so if I delay in getting back to you on something urgent, ping my wife/publicist at denise@writebrainmedia.com or call her at (630) 845-4694.
