Dear Friends,

San Diego Comic Con 2011 is coming up quickly and this year, I decided to do my first-ever Dave Dorman Limited Edition Sketchbook! My new Sketchbook is packed with finished pencil art from some of my more famous paintings, some preliminaries for paintings I am working now in my studio, and certainly some of my fans’ favorite characters.

First Issue Edition. This has been LIMITED to 250 copies. I will NOT be reprinting this book.

  • 24 pages with black and white interiors and card stock duotone covers.
  • Many of your favorite characters, including Batman, Captain America, Darth Vader… and a special first-ever preview of the preliminaries from my new CAPTAIN NEMO Triptych.
  • Each sketchbook is signed by me, Dave Dorman.
  • All orders made by Monday, July 18th, 2011 will be sent before the start of SDCC.
  • Price is $10.00 and if you order online, shipping is $5.00. If you order more than one, I will deduct all postage over the initial $5.00 shipping.

  • This is the perfect opportunity for those of you unable to attend SDCC this year to have this Dave Dorman Exclusive, One-of-a-Kind, Limited Edition Sketchbook. Due to the small print run of the book, I cannot guarantee I will have any copies after the show. I know a lot of my fans are unable to make the show this year, so please order your Dave Dorman Limited Edition Sketchbook ASAP!

Order now – here’s your link:

If you are attending SDCC, I will be set up in Booth 4500, in your convention book under the name “Dave Dorman,” in an end cap booth near Door G. Please come by and say “Hello!” I will be doing autograph signings for Archaia and possibly Dark Horse, but keep checking back on my blog for updates and accurate information.

As always, I thank you for your interest in and support of my work!!

Dave.

Hi Everyone,

Like all of you, we’re busy gearing up for Thanksgiving. I will post another blog on this closer to the big day, but I have much to be thankful for this year.
For the next few weeks I will be having a number of eBay auctions, selling some of my toy/action figure/figurines that I have received as samples from the manufacturer. Many of these are variants.  I am selling some as sets, as well as individual pieces. I am not asking collector’s prices, just what I think is reasonable. A lot of these will make fun Christmas/Hanukkah/holiday gifts for the kids, especially if they’re San Diego Comic-ConMicronauts or GI Joe fans.
So here is the listing from this week’s lots:

SWC5 Preorders Allowed, & A Call-Out for Your Photos!

Posted in DAVE DORMAN NEWS with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on July 29, 2010 by DaveandDeniseDorman

Dear Friends,

I’d like to share with my Star Wars art fans that I am being allowed to take pre-orders before SWC5, but you must be present to pick up the prints, and you must pay for them AT the show.  Please pick up your prints by noon on Friday, August 13th or they will be put back into retail rotation.

About the New SWC5 Print: The print is the same style and format as C4 and CE and will be signed and numbered. There will be 250 copies only. The cost  will be $100. The title of the print is “A Disturbance in the Force on the Battlefield of Hoth.” They have a preliminary already up on the StarWars.com site.

Please email my wife Denise with your pre-order requests and she will create a spread sheet to keep very good track of your orders. Include in your email your cell phone #, mailing address. If you would like to request a certain print number to match previous editions, please make Denise aware of this as well and we will try our best to match that number in this edition.

Please note that Denise must send you a confirmation email to ensure that the transaction is confirmed. I would hate for anyone’s email to get caught in her spam filter and lose the opportunity. Be sure to get that email confirmation. If you need to call Denise & confirm, her phone # is 630.845.4694.

One of the ideas that really stayed with me after San Diego Comic-Con was that those of you who collect my art do a really beautiful job of displaying my art in your own homes…and sometimes in ink on your bodies. Some non-tattoo displays, like my friend Greg’s in Arizona and Ryan’s in North Carolina, are really elaborate. So, if you all don’t mind, I would really enjoy seeing and displaying on my blog, with your permission, the unique ways you’re displaying my artwork in your own environs or in tattoo form. Sometimes it gives me ideas for how to matte and display my own. If you can take a jpeg photo and email it to my wife, Denise@writebrainmedia.com, she will start posting these on my blog for all of us to see, appreciate and compare notes. Who knows? Maybe a fan calendar can come of it? That could be a lot of fun.

Some of what happened at SDCC I’m under NDA not to discuss, but suffice it to say, plenty of great business opportunities came my way, and I’m very excited for the next year to unfold.

Here are some San Diego Comic-Con highlights that I can discuss:

The new book, ROLLING THUNDER: The Art of Dave Dorman launched at the show. I thank all of you who made the 1/2-mile trek from my booth to the IDW booth and back to buy a copy & then come back for my signature.

I did a sketch on camera for The Gnomon Workshop’s “SKETCH THEATER,” and that will post online in the next couple of weeks. When it goes live, I’ll post a link here so you can all see it.

My friend, The Collector, got nearly all of the autographs he wanted from SDCC, so I am pleased for him.

For those of you who sat in on my panel discussions, I thank you. If any of you got photography from either of my panels, please send to Denise to post on my blog with your permission and you will get a photo credit (if you like).

Again, I thank you all for reading and I appreciate all of you for taking an interest in my work. I’m hard at work painting the new SWC5 piece right now, so that will be my focus for the next several days.

Dave, the 2010 SDCC Inkpot Award Winner!
