post-WonderCon 2014 post

hey guys!

thanks so much for all of your support. so many of you showed up to my table at WonderCon in Anaheim this year, which was my first year hosting a booth. the response was overwhelming and truly flattering. typically, i don't have time for things like that because the time commitment is far greater than i can allow for (drawing 50-60 hrs every week for work), but since many of you asked for it, i'm certainly glad i made the push! in that same regard, since there was a large demand for prints to be available online, i will try my hardest to have an online store up and running by the end of the week! i'll be sure to announce when that happens. in any case, for those of you who were not able to make it out, i wanted to at least post my goods here so that you can see what i had available. a few of these you may recognize from the past (like the black & white Batman, Super Mario 1up sticker, Bravest Warriors print, and Stitch in a Wolverine costume), but a couple were brand new specifically for this convention (like my brand new Dragonball Z series and Link from Zelda at Bikini Bottom). take a look, lemme know what you think, and share, share, share!

**NOTE: there is something wrong with my posting today that is making the colors come out strange. these colors are off compared to BOTH of my screen calibrations and the actual prints. i'll try to get this fixed as soon as possible!**

sketches to post

so! i got a few minutes to do... i dunno what with, so i decided i should post a few of my droorings that i've managed to squeak out here and there over the last few weeks in between work and shorts and getting ready for WonderCon. below are a few quick pieces i did for the Sketch Dailies twitter account this month. they were fun warmups to do, so hopefully i can squeeze in a few more here and there. i think the prompts are pretty obvious, but i'll type them above each drawing:

ok so ever since i was a kid, Friday has been my favorite day of the week. today's been one of those exciting Fridays! i'm stoked that i finished my work early, i have a fun weekend planned with my beautiful wife, and to top it off, we have a 3-day weekend because of a great man who dared to think outside the box. AND SO! to celebrate the weekend, i'm going to do a little give away: 1 free Mario sticker to a random new follower for every 10 followers on BOTH Twitter and Instagram (both @optik2010) from now through Monday! just follow me and tweet/post "i want one!" to me for your chance to win! and, as always, thanks for digging what i do :0)
