I am considering doing a bunch of character studies–fully rendered pencil drawings–like this one:
for inclusion in my summer sketchbook LEADWORKS. While I have my own favorite characters to draw, I thought I would throw it out to you, my fans, to get some ideas on what you would like to see me draw. If you have suggestions for any character from any media (films, comics, TV, media, etc.) just list them on either of my Facebook Fan Pages in the relevant thread here: http://facebook.com/davedormansstudio
and I will take them under consideration. If I use YOUR suggested character, I will be sure to credit your name with a special thanks on the related page in the new LEADWORKS 2014 book.
Thanks for reading and Happy Hump Day,
I will be doing a children’s learn-to-draw teaching demo event with Barnes & Noble in West Dundee, Illinois (Spring Hill Mall) on Friday, November 22nd from 5 – 7 p.m. This is a chance for children ages 5 – 12 to learn “How to Draw Star Wars Art.” I will be presenting this demo and coaching attendees on their drawing skills. If you live in the Chicagoland area and are looking for a really engaged bookstore offering family-friendly events, check out this particular Barnes & Noble.
In other news, I am continuing my pre-holiday sale on my convention Giclee’ prints – just $25, since I won’t be doing any more conventions until 2014, so buy them here: http://www.davedorman.com/dormanartprints.shtml
Here’s the art demo piece I did for Blick Art Supplies last weekend – a zombie Stormtrooper (photography by Kim Evans Worley):
If you’re in the Midwest and looking for a family-friendly comic book convention, Indy PopCon in Indianapolis May 30 – June 1st will be the show to attend. This new show is run by my friend Larry Zore, of Comics Price Guide fame. If you’re an artist or vendor interested in being a part of Indy PopCon, please contact email@example.com. Indianapolis is a really cool city to check out, and they have a wonderful children’s museum there.
Remember to check out the critically acclaimed horror comic “The Other Dead” Issue #2 – it’s getting really fun as the tension builds. Issue #3 will be out soon as well. The Other Dead Issue #1 is sold out and reprints are in transition. The Other Dead Synopsis: Louisiana is Ground Zero for the animal kingdom to become zombified, as a Katrina-like hurricane bears down on Louisiana.
I was pleased to hear that the Joliet Star Wars Day Library Event I’ve been participating in the last three years has grown to become the largest worldwide according to Lucasfilm, so that’s great news for the City of Joliet.
I’m in the throes of clearing out my garage this week and I rediscovered my QVC appearance, so I will be digitizing that to throw online for you to have a good laugh. I also found my WEAR-TV (Pensacola ABC affiliate) appearance on BETA, so I’ll have to find someone to reformat it. I’m still missing my SciFi Channel appearance, so if anyone out there has video of it, I’d like to see it again.

GenCon: I am pleased to share that our prototype RAIL: IRON WARS strategy board game/trading card game designed by Mike Bawden and Tim Bawden of Silent Gunfight did 5 rounds of game testing at GenCon, and we received great comments and positive reviews from the players, including our good friend and game theory professor Durwin Talon and his wife Guin Thompson, so we will be moving forward with the game! Here’s a shot of the first group of game testers (these gents were from the U.K.):
Downtown Comics, Market Street in Indianapolis: A special thanks to all who came out to see me Saturday as I was signing with The Henchmen creator/writer Jameson, plus signing my other works. It was also fun to meet a pop culture kindred spirit, Drew Curtis, founder of the great website Fark.com! He has a new beer with Wil Wheaton called Stone Farking Wheaton W00t Stout, and it’s nearly sold out already so hurry and get your six-pack! Congrats to Wil and Drew!

Kyle Andrews and me Saturday at Downtown Comics–Kyle bought some pencil preliminaries from me::
I also want to thank Tina and Jason Rak of St. Louis for coming by Downtown Comics and sharing with me how beautifully they framed the Star Wars original painting they bought from me at the Spectrum Show in Kansas City, KS.
So…that’s about all of the excitement I can take for 3 days. Now I recuperate by drawing and painting and hanging with the family. I do want to share that I just learned will be at New York City Comic-Con October 18-21 with Kevin Eastman, Joshua Ortega and Digger T. Mesch, launching “The Other Dead” IDW comic, so please be sure to visit us in Artists Alley there. As soon as I have Table #s, I will post them here.
