Artist Alley, my First table by ChasingArtwork
Artist Alley, my First table
Doing a couple presentations at schools right away about being a full time artist, and the recent launch of Cassie and Tonk- so I'm going through older work and pics for my slideshow...

Heres my booth at the Winnipeg Central Canada con 2014 and then my very first convention at the same venue in 2008. I shared a table with a buddy, and printed about 12prints off at staples the day before. 
Things have slightly changed. just thought I would share!! 

Getting over a flu or something- soon as I'm back on top of things, will be posting a lot of new work :)

Gotham Gears II: Poison Ivy by ChasingArtwork
Gotham Gears II: Poison Ivy
Ivy produces a unique, self replicating nano virus within. The nanobot design is a hybrid of her own custom model and an ancient (thought lost) molecule structure known as "Chlorophyll". 

This nano swarm secretes initially as a green liquid, quickly building itself into a spanning networks of tendrils, then vine structures, and eventually more complex constructs. These growths range from harmless spiral petals of colour (purpose unknown) to large, monstrous constructs, complete with defensive/grabbing appendages.
This network of structured nanobot growth is known as her "Garden"


Strengths:
• Ivy's "Garden" directly connects to her main processor- the larger her garden spans, the more powerful her neural net.
• Ivy has a direct link with anything grown from the 
Chlorophyll virus. She is conscious and has full control over her Garden. 
• Ivy is also able to produce a short range collective of nano spores, close proximity has been known to cause certain systems malfunctions, leaving the target susceptible to suggestion. 
• Direct contact is rumoured to cause complete system shutdown. (Ivy refers to this direct contact as a "Kiss")


Weaknesses:
• If Ivy stays in one location for too long, the neural net/garden becomes too vast and complex, and so she must take root to properly connect. It is very difficult for her to move once this rooting has occurred- if she is forced to uproot, she must completely disconnect from her "Garden". This process is apparently very painful and taxing to Ivy.  
• Ivy, and the Chlorophyll virus needs access to sunlight in order to function- prolonged darkness will eventually render them inert.  
• Ivy is incredibly possessive and protective of Garden, any outside or damage or interference sends her into a blind rage. 
• Without a Garden network, Ivy is unable to focus for long periods of time, becomes disoriented and eventually weak. Very frail when disconnected.


Hope you like her! was going for a Empress/ scary Mother nature/Kerrigan kinda look. Ivy is one of the biggest and baddest in the Gotham Gears universe, and I think she was my fav to design so far. 

For the rest of the series:

Lineup 2 is just Ivy and Scarecrow so far, more on the way.

A little Robot Named Zap by ChasingArtwork
A little Robot Named Zap
Okay guys! Need you to help me design a cute a bot in my next book. 
Story synopsis: Set in a massive futuristic junkyard, a little lost robot sets off on a journey back home. Along the way, he encounters many obstacles, but by sharing his battery, he awakens and befriends massive slumbering Robots with the skills that allows him to continue his journey. 

How your vote works: Of the 6 designs, pick your fav and leave a comment with the number! (and why that zap is your fav, if you'd like)
I'll reply to each comment with the current vote and a thanks.
Voting Closes Jan 1. 

After all the votes are tallied, I will re-design a final character based on the most liked design, and likely incorporate favourite aspects of the others. The current votes on the page were from kids at the International Book Fair, they count as well.

Been busy getting my ducks in a row for the 2014 con season :) lots of shows lined up, and I'm pumped!!
slowly but surely making more time for US shows, and hopefully I'll be making a jump across the pond for a Europe show before too long. Australia was on the list for this year, but my selfish best friends getting married haha, so that's on hold for now. 
I'm going to be at the 2015 San Diego show, as well. For sure for sure. tired of missing out on that.

Winnipeg AiKon Winterfest February 8

Smaller Local anime con to start the year off! tiny show, but great attendees and a fun atmosphere :)


Winnipeg Wonderland Anime Festival  March 1,2
Untitled by ChasingArtwork
Another Smaller con, the very first year its been held. Bit tinnier than we had hoped, but a good chance to network with local artists and plan some big plans :)


Toronto Comicon March 7-9
Untitled by ChasingArtwork
First big show of the year! was a little hectic to man a 2 table endcap without any help, but with the aid of red bull, coffee, and Granola bars, I made er!
The Pokemon Poster on display caused a massive spike in that pieces interest- good trick to remember.
I also think I forgot a piece of my banner stand at the show :( 
Also, never trust :iconquirkilicious: :iconandreatamme: to lead you anywhere. Ever. every time we go off on an adventure to find a magical Sushi place, or a mythicaly awesome pasta restaurant, it turns into a never ending quest :p



Emerald City Comicon March 28-30
Seattle Booth by ChasingArtwork
This con had a stupid amount of talent setting up shop, my area in particular felt like a Disney concept art book exploded onto the floor. so much AAA cuteness.  Loved the city of Seattle, very friendly and chill place, the weather was nice (especially in comparison to Winnipeg). One of the best aspects of the trip was adventuring around the city with friends after show hours. 
Cannot wait for next year! only thing I'm going to change is the amount of table space :0 need moooaaar!



Fan Expo Vancouver  
April 18-20

Lil sis came to help me out :) was a super fun trip, and I was pleasantly surprised how many return customers remembered me from last year and were excited to pick up the new stuff- always nice to leave an impression in the sea of crazy talent that is artists alley :p



Calgary Expo April 24-27

Not sure where to start with how the Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo went this year... Splendidly epic.

To kick things off, they used my Cassie and Tonk artbook submission as a aisle banner, completely unknown to me, so day one of the show I suddenly stumbled upon my own original characters printed the size of truck. The best. It will be used at the con every year from now on  (I tried to buy it from them, but they like it too much, haha)

I've never had so many return customers, almost everyone had visited the booth in years past, and was hungry for this years new pieces. One of the best con crowds an artist could hope for.

After a dozen or so customers took my ninja turtles pieces to the voice cast to sign, I was informed the actors wanted their own copies, I promptly sprinted across the halls and had the opportunity to meet the entire voice cast my fav childhood show! All really nice dudes. Cowabunga.

Every day after the show Andrea Tamme and Quirkilicious took us out for crazy delicious eats, I'll be haunted by those savoury meats until next year 

So ya, amazing show, great attendees, hauntingly great meals. I'll be back next year with more stuff than you can shake a stick at!



Fan Expo Regina May 3-4
Untitled by ChasingArtworkUntitled by ChasingArtwork
Think everyone was pretty shocked at the turnout this con pulled, was a great success for a shows 1st year, and next to no artists tried this show out- so we killed! :p
and of course yummy eats afterwards, this time with some Total Drama Island voice actors.

Great art man, I added a ton of your work to my favorites and I'm watching you on here now.  Your robot art reminds me a lot of some of the design in the video game Destiny, the wizards and your Ironman, almost looks like your art could be in their game.  Great job!

Do you take requests or commissions for some normal character art...?
