Dear Friends,

The summer is flying by fast and it was great to see all my fans come out to San Diego for #SDCC this year. One of the things I had for the show was my 2013 sketchbook LEADWORKS for sale. (I have changed the title this year to reflect a more dynamic name than “Dave Dorman Sketchbook”!) Like previous years, it features pencil roughs and finished preliminaries for various works I have painted from Star Wars to WoW and everything in-between (including President Obama!). 
Here’s a peek at the cover:

I had LEADWORKS delivered directly to my hotel in San Diego from the printer, so I was unable to list it here for purchase until now.
You can buy LEADWORKS now via this link: http://www.davedorman.com/leadworks2013.shtml.
The price is $15.00 including postage ($20.00 for outside the USA). Of course, each copy will be signed at no extra charge. 
For the first time, I am also offering a print of my critically acclaimed and much admired painting “Dorothy Daydreams.”
"Dorothy Daydreams" by Dave Dorman

“Dorothy Daydreams” by Dave Dorman

This piece of art was produced for the “Visions of Oz” art show in Los Angeles, sponsored by Creature Features and Taylor White.  The art is my interpretation of Dorothy alone on the plains of Kansas, dreaming of a more exciting life just over the horizon. The print is 13″ x 19″, printed on heavy archival stock, directly from my studio one at a time. The price is $30.00 including postage ($40.00 for outside the USA).
To order your very own Dorothy Daydreams print, please follow this link:

I will be at Wizard World Chicago this weekend Aug. 9-11. You will find me at Booth #313 where I will be promoting my friend Brian Wyrick’s new comic “The Henchmen.” I was honored to be asked to paint the cover for the first issue, which will debut at the convention, so please stop by and pick up a copy and a couple of creator autographs including mine!
Since it’s Shark Week, I should mention that my good friend, writer Andrew E.C. Gaska (for whom I did art in his “Conspiracy of the Planet of the Apes” critically acclaimed book) has asked me to create art for his really fun new story, FRENZY, now on Kickstarter – a horror story about a shark bloodbath in the ocean – the $4k backer gets my original painting for free – we’re 22 days away from reaching our $30k goal, so if you want to help Kickstart a cool oceanic horror story, here’s the link: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1867085351/frenzy-an-illustrated-novel

Happy Fourth of July!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 4, 2013 by DaveandDeniseDorman

Happy Fourth of July to my U.S. Friends, and Happy Saturday to my Worldwide Friends.

I thank all of my military family for their service to our country today. Please be safe and remember that the spirit of independence lives in each and every one of you. As a military brat, I appreciate your service.

As Jack, Denise and I were hanging our U.S. flag in front of our house this morning, we each expressed thanks that we are living in the most free country on earth, no matter how bad things look right now. Our Founding Fathers had a vision that has lasted well over 200 years, and that vision is still valid today. We just need to continue working hard to fulfill that vision. May God bless all of you, and may God continue to bless America. 

So…here in the U.S. we have Benghazi-gate, the NSA, the IRS, and journalists being persecuted…but do you want to see something really scary? (Me…taken this morning).

My longtime friend Joel Meadows and his staff just published their big 21st Anniversary Issue of TRIPWIRE–one of the best comics-related magazines on the market, featuring plenty of great artists, interviews, insightful articles, and of course, a painting by yours truly of Captain America v. Darth Vader. It’s out now, so pick it up when you can, and bring it to San Diego for me to sign – I’ll be at Booth #4500, promoting my WASTED LANDS property. (If you haven’t done so already, please “Like” my WASTED LANDS page on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/davedormanwastedlands.)

On Saturday, July 13th, I will be exhibiting at Comic Book Mania, held at the Gail Borden Public Library in Elgin, IL from 10-5 and curated by Bob Cassinelli, so please join all us of there if you can. The Chicago winners of the Writers & Illustrators of the Future Awards will be there with me. For those of you looking for me at the American Library Association event last Saturday in Chicago, my apologies for being unable to attend. My father-in-law was ill, and it was a little touch and go for a while.

A special thanks to all of you who joined me in helping my friend Steve Smith of Alaxis Press Kickstart his Schuiten and Peeters THE LEANING GIRL graphic novel, English edition. He actually went above his $30k goal, so this has been exciting to watch get funded. I know Steve appreciates it very much. 

The OTHER DEAD cover I did for IDW Publishing of President Obama has generated some press, so here are some links to that:

 

 

 

 

 

A Happy Independence Day to all of you, and remember: if you’re lighting off fireworks & beyond, please be careful.

Dave.
