Friends, this is the world’s largest STAR WARS LIBRARY EVENT in Joliet, IL! I’ve done this event since its inception, with a special shout-out & thanks to Jody McQuarters, who initially got me involved. It’s great fun for the whole family, my son Jack loves it, and it offers great photo opps for everyone who loves STAR WARS. As always, autographs are always free, so come see me, get your stuff signed, and if you feel like it, buy some STAR WARS art from me and the other amazing artists you will see at this event–Steve Palenica, James Tampa, Jamie Snell & Mikey Babinski! And check out my friend Cris Macht, who has done an amazing job with his documentaries establishing HOW & WHY STAR WARS matters to the fandom. Authors John Jackson Miller and Keith Ryan Kappel will be with us, too! And let’s not forget, my beloved 501st, the world’s largest COSPLAY organization–of which I’m an honorary member–that is also a fundraiser for the Make a Wish Foundation. Joining me will be ComicBookWife.com blogger, WriteBrain Media’s very own Denise McDonald Dorman!

Here are the event details for this Saturday in Joliet, Illinois (my fellow Blues Brothers fans will know where Joliet is…ūüėČ

Hi Everyone!
I hope you had a great summer and that if you do have kids, the transition back to school has been smooth. This coming Saturday and Sunday, you can find me at http://counticon.com, a show in Grayslake, IL at the Lake County Fairgrounds.
¬†It’s time for an “End of the Summer” sale to make room for some new work I have coming up. In the next couple of weeks, I will be posting some different pieces of art for sale–mostly pencil pieces, sketch covers, and other items. You will find links below to the “Sale Page” on my website, with all the details on the art. Currently, I have two Boba Fett pieces, one Lando Calrissian piece, and one of Count Dooku. These are one-of-a-kind ORIGINAL PENCIL ILLUSTRATIONS…NOT prints. So, there is only one of each, and once each one is¬†sold, I will remove them¬†from the page. There is a Paypal button for each Sketch Cover on the webpage.

KROS: Hallowed Ground – A Kickstarter by John Ostrander and my fellow Joe Kubert Alum Tom Mandrake

Dear Friends,

As you can imagine, every one of my friends has some sort of Kickstarter going at the moment, and I could make a full-time job of reposting them here. But I won’t. However, my friends John Ostrander and Tom Mandrake have a really cool Kickstarter campaign for their new graphic novel with just 1 day left on it, and I am hoping they make their goal – they’re just about $3k away from it. The log line:¬†Vampire Hunter Kros fights a battle at night as fearful and horrific as the battles fought during the day at the Battle of Gettysburg.

Here’s a link to support them on Kickstarter:¬†https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/kroshallowedground/kros-hallowed-ground

Here’s an image of the Kickstarter page:¬†

Dear Friends,
I did the artwork for my friend’s podcast – here is information on it for my fellow STAR WARS fans:
The show is It’s a Trap! with original artwork created by Dave Dorman and is meant to discuss each piece of the new Disney approved standard of Star Wars Canon with an eye to point out anything new being brought in from the now Legend-s story arc.¬† We hope to reach people that want to know what happens, but don’t have the time to read/watch, or people that have already consumed the story and want to hear our thoughts, what we caught, and hopefully might be willing to let us know what we missed!¬† We are committed to putting out at least fortnightly until such a time as our listeners make us move to a weekly production format.

Website for the show is itsatrappodcast.com

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:
