Enter the Marquis!

In some older blog posts I've shown pencilled pages to devils, the midwife, General Herzoge~ but I just realized I haven't posted any new pages showing the Marquis yet. So here's another peek at some pencils to the upcoming Marquis and the Midwife, and the entrance of the Marquis himself into the story.

The Marquis gets a head! Last weekend at the Staple! convention, I also shared table space with Jason Horn (Ninjasaur) who brought me this wonderful Marquis bust that he sculpted! Talk about good neighbors~

Jeremy Bastian (Cursed Pirate Girl) knows the way to my heart lies in animal skulls with big wigs! I posted an earlier Diableries showing his incredible brushwork drawing of the Marquis~ a couple years ago I commissioned him to do a bigger piece with no direction from me, I told him just to have fun with it. And here's the beauty I got in return with all his amazing brushwork and crazy detailed glory! Click on the image above to see a big scan~

I'm in Austin, TX at the Staple! comicon this weekend (or should be since this is an autopost before I left), and sharing a table spot with the talented Paul Maybury (Aqua Leung, Popgun, 24/7). And to also prove that Paul's a nice guy, he drew me this wonderful illo of the Marquis battling some sort of twisted and devilish Harpy!

I'll also be at the pre-party Meet and Greet at Austin Books and Comics on Friday (starts at 8pm), along with taking part in Saturdays Live Art Show after the convention. Where I'm sure I'll be sketching some monsters! More info on the Staple! website below, so if you're in town this weekend~ please stop by one of the events to say hello!
