Cons, appearances, projects, and life.

Posted on by Mark Stegbauer

So here we are, Spring has finally sprung. Which means cons rapidly approaching., as well as a few appearances. So here is the breakdown:

FUNdraiser at Eagle school Friday May 3  5pm-9pm- I'll be doing small $5 sketches, and larger $10 sketches, with all proceeds going to the school. My future step-daughter goes to the school, and I'm glad to help them out. If you are in the Madison area, please stop by and help.

Free Comic Book Day at Neptune Comics Saturday May 4 11am-4pm- I'll be appearing at Neptune Comics in Waukesha, Wisconsin for FCBD. I'll have copies of the Dr Goyle FCBD book, and will also have copies of Dr Goyle 1&2, as well as prints, and other art. I will be doing $10 backing board sketches. For those wanting something more elaborate, I will also do other size sketches, but they are more expensive. See my price list at the end of the post.

Springcon in Minneapolis, MN May 18-19  10am-5pm- Another great show, probably my favorite. I'll have all sorts of stuff, Dr Goyle books, prints, and I will be doing sketches. I am currently taking pre-orders, so if you want one, let me know, and we'll discuss price.

CONvergence in Minneapolis July 4-7- I'll be at this 4 day show once again. I'll be set up in Artist Alley most of the con. I will also be doing a few panels, and 1 autograph session while I'm there. I'f you haven't been to this show, you're missing out.

Comic Book Mania Convention Elgin, Ill Saturday July 13 10am-5pm- I'll be at his show for the first time. It's held at the Gail Borden Public Library, and is featuring some great guests. I'll have books and prints, and will be doing sketches.

Wizard World Chicago August 15-18- I'll be set up in Artist Alley with my Alphadog Studio brothers. We'll have copies of all our books, prints, and we'll be doing sketches.

Prices for art:

9x12 B&W bust shot $40  Color $60

11x17 B&W full figure  $75  Color $100

Additional figures are $20 extra.  I do take credit cards as well.

I'll have a few new projects out later this year, both featuring kids and zombies. First off, I'll be doing a one-shot book called Survival, written by Russell )Strawberry Shortcake, Batman Strikes!) Lissau. The second is a series called Zomboy Scouts. It's written by Steve (Athena Voltaire, Black Cobra) Bryant. I am doing all the art for both series. Should be pretty fun stuff. I'll keep everyone updated.

Life is going pretty well. A few bumps in the road here and there, but overall, pretty great. Jen and I move into our new place on May 16th, and celebrate our 1 year anniversary together a few weeks after that. I feel very lucky to have her in my life. She brings me a lot of happiness and joy.

I have also decided to look into going back to school, and get my Bachelor's degree, and then become a teacher, an art teacher. Go figure. Working with the kids at Eagle school in the Comic Club has been a real joy, and I like that I have helped kids unleash their creativity. I'll keep folks posted on how that goes.

Talk to you soon everyone!!
