Hey All! What a heck of time at C2E2 2020. I will most definitely be posting more later this week about my time at the con but for now let me say, THANK YOU!! To everyone who purchased my art, who stopped by to say hello and chitchat a bit to catch up and to those who just stopped dead in their tracks to stare at my work and said "That is cool as hell!"
The smiles we shared really mean a lot, again, Thank you! Now! As I mentioned above, I'll post a bit more later this week but more importantly, I will be expanding my store later this week as well. Currently the print choices are limited, so if you don't see what you're looking for available, check back next week. Until then, I'll talk to you all later! - GOMEZ
Here's the process for this piece I did Sunday morning. I literally woke up, grab my ipad and started drawing this image for an idea I've been toying with for awhile. I was outta bed by 10:00 a.m. with the piece finished. Enjoy the video and please give it a like or leave a comment. It's nice to know people are out there curious about my art.
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
Below is a video of my sketch process using Procreate on the ipad. The video shows my beginning sketch phases between Miles and Gwen. I did a light sketch of Miles in my sketchbook that I really liked, so for him, I went straight into the line work. For Gwen, you'll see that go through multiple poses and that's typically my process for any character sketch that becomes a print. If this was a comic book any of the poses would work because you would be drawing the character over and over though out the book. But since this will be a print, I'm really looking for that right dynamic pose that captures everything a fan would want out of the image. And for me, each final pose is like my signature, my stamp on the character.
Please enjoy the video and leave a comment or like, it's nice to know someone is watching out there, Thank You!

My apologies to anyone that may check-in from time to time and does not see a new post from me. I know, I'm terrible about this. It has been busy since wrapping up the year with Ace con and looking to next year's con line up. I'll be posting more frequently now that I can focus a bit more on myself and art. Please come back! Talk to ya soon - Gomez
First, the Southside comic book show. This show took place on Saturday September 14th in Alsip IL. The show is run by Rocky a.k.a. Matt Murdock and his family, who work together to make us, the artist and vendor feel at home. This is the second year for the show and my second time participating. Although it's a very small show, it packs a punch. Rocky, the show runner has been passionate about comics his whole life and it comes through in the show he puts on. The entrance fee in totally affordable, the artists and vendors are those you'll find at the bigger shows and it's convenient. You don't have to spend all day there and who doesn't want to spend a Saturday looking through comics?
Second, The Galaxy comic and fantasy art expo in Joliet IL. This took place Saturday September 21st. This show is run by Jody McQuarters and is held in Joliet's downtown museum. I've been doing this show for the past 4 years now and I have to say that hands down, this is one of the best one day shows of the year. It keeps getting better and better. The only thing is the foot traffic is not there and this show deserves better. It's four floors of Awesomeness! I know Jody does a good job getting the word out but the people have to show up. I would really hate to see this show go away, it's just too good.
Anyhoo, I gotta run. I'll probably come back to this post later to officially wrap it up.

Wizard World 2019 is now over. I can not begin to express my appreciation to all those who have purchased my art and have become fans of my art over the years and currently. This year's Wizard World I met so many incredible people that were kind, generous and incredibly creative. From the bottom of my heart want to say thank you! Your positive kind words make want I do worth pursuing each year. To the fantastic young lady who cosplayed as my Harley Quinn Cubs print (see picture below) you made my convention year. My only regret was I never asked your name, nor did I offer you a free print for your awesomeness, was just caught up in the moment. You have a free print coming to you whenever you see me again. My pal Pat introduced me to his brother in-law John whom in the short time we met made a big impression on me with his kindness, honesty and selflessness, thanks John!
The images below are from and older post. My display and button size in my current stock have changed but otherwise the process is the same.
Yesterday was Mini Con at the International School of Comics Chicago and the buttons went over well with the patrons - which was and is totally exciting for me. Professional comic book artist, Hilary Barta, one of the many talents that tabled yesterday, thought these were pretty cool - cool enough that I should send one to Svengoolie and see if airs it on television. So we’ll see how it goes, I’ll keep you posted.

I know! I'm late to the game with posting my art videos on my blog but to be honest, I never thought about it until recently. And now that I know I can there will be plenty more to come. Please, feel free to ask any questions regarding the art process or please just comment so that I know you're out there. Talk to ya soon!
(This video also has music I created which may be loud once you start to play the vid so be warned.)
