I forgot to mention my lovely “booth wife”. The incredibly talented Karen Hallion.
I miss you already!!
Karen Hallion best known for her Disney crossovers with Doctor Who, is an artist, mother, and part-time Jedi whose work you’ve seen grace daily shirt websites such as Teefury and The Yetee. From Firefly to Labyrinth, Karen has got her geek bases covered. She took some time out her day to answer a few questions for us.
Eat: Being a frequent Disneyland/Disneyworld-goer, what is THE food to get when you pay the parks a visit, and what’s your go-to food while you’re working on a project?
There is a chocolate caramel cookie from a shop in Germany at Epoct that is THE food I have to get. I dream of it nightly!
The one thing I always have while working is coffee, lots and lots of coffee. I also munch on gummi bears a lot throughout the day.
Geek: What’s the last movie you watched, and if the Doctor paid you a visit, where would you go?
I recently saw Maleficent and loved it. It was great to see a story I thought I knew and have it told in a new and unexpected way, and if the Doctor asked me where to go, I would pick Disnelyand on opening day.
Play: Do you make time to play any video games? What are you playing at the moment? What’s on your music playlist when you work?
I have been playing a lot of the new Mario Kart with my son, and the music depends on my mood and how much I need to focus. Generally for really tough work, I put on instrumental soundtracks from some of my favorite movies (Willow, the Rockateer, Up). Otherwise I will be listening to show tunes and Disney music, and singing loudly along.Gallery Preview, #Art, #Artist, #Disney, #Disneyland, #Disneyworld, #DoctorWho, #KarenHallion, #ThreeQuestions, Art, Artist, disney, Disneyland, Disneyworld, doctor who, Karen Hallion, three questions
Which do you like better for a shirt? The right one, more of a finished look? Or one that’s more faded, with the sketch lines still visible?

These are 9” x 11“‘s, Copic markers, and I will be selling the originals at San Diego Comic-Con International, Table BB-11 in Artist Alley. I might do prints in the future in my Etsy store.

AND I will be at an off-site event, a meet-up at the Donut Bar Friday night from 6-8,run by Nerd For a Living… nerdnetworking, portfolio reviews for artists from Tee Fury, and DONUTS.
SO…one more day for me to color as many sketchcards and original art as I can, then I fly out to San Diego at 6AM on Wednesday. I will post pics from the Con here, and also on my Instagram, and Twitter.

Charming Illustrated Cinemagraphs Reflect The Idyllic Mood Of Lazy Summer Days

You can feel each one…
The new Batgirl design has been often credited to Cameron Stewart OR Babs Tarr but rarely to the both of them. The design process was in fact a collaboration with both artists contributing to the final design.
Cameron: When DC first approached me about taking over Batgirl as…
Leaving for San Diego Comic-Con International on Wednesday. I will be at Table BB-11 in Artists Alley. I will also be on three panels, and attending an offsite event. I will post a schedule later today.

But before Leaky Con starts, I will be in the Magic Kingdom at WDW on Wednesday Aug 30th. I will be at the Cinderella Fountain at 7PM that night if anyone wants to say hello. And then, Aug 8-10th, I will be at Boston Comic Con!
Busy, busy, busy. When I get home, back to working on more designs.
Anyone going to be at any of these events?
