It’s been awhile since I last posted and that’s because i’m Vacationing with the family at Wisconsin Dells, where something wicked this way comes.
just kidding! It looks like it though in my photos. I’ve been working on some new prints for upcoming shows which I will announce once I return home and share my latest art processes as well. Hope you all have had some time this summer to do something relaxing whether it be some good old alone time or with your family. Anyhoo, I’ll catch up with y’all later, Byeeeee!
So, you might be saying to yourself "Self!...something different here at casa D'Gomez" and you're right!
I dropped several pages from my site to tailor it to a blog & shop site. I felt my site was getting a bit too stale and crowded, I just found it a bit too cumbersome to maintain. I want to focus on sharing my drawings, thoughts, ideas with you all and make it a skosh more intimate. So, Please visit more often! I'll keeping working on the site, little by little with the blog as the body. I've got plans and part of that plan is to share what's the latest and greatest with you all. That's It! I've said too much! I find, if I talk about my ideas too much I don't finish them - I've gotta walk the walk if I'm going to talk the talk. So again, come back soon, I'll be posting my train doodles that I share on Instagram on the regular and more!
Bye for now! -GOMEZ
You ever start doodling without any aim as to what you're doing and you end up with something kind of awesome?!
That's what the piece below is. I'll post some process pics soon. Right now, it's late and I have to hit the sack!
Let me know whatcha think!
OK! First order of business, I was not chosen to participate at this years New York Comic Con. So, I will not be attending.
Next! is this show, Mini Con and Open House at the International School of Comics. I'm so excited to be participating at the school amongst some of Chicago's star talents and Super Stars in the Comics industry today.
I encourage anyone interested in pursuing comics, drawing, writing, learning pro techniques to attend the open house - it's gunna be a heck of a day!
Incase you were unaware, reedPOP, is the show runner for such cons as C2E2, Emerald City Con, New York Comic Con and serval others. Well, for each of these shows if you want to participate you must submit an application they offer on their site, which does not mean you are automatically accepted, that's when the waiting game begins. The waiting game, is a subsequent arbitrary date to find out whether or your application got you in the door or not. And if you make it! the, "HOLY CRAP I GOTTA GET READY!" game begins. If you don't make it the begging game begins, "PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!! Let me be part of the show this year!"...I don't want to beg! So wish me luck...PLEASE!!!
Comic Con Revolution happening this weekend!! I'm pretty excited for this con coming up. Totally new convention hitting the Chicagoland area, happening at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, hanging out with some of my favorite peeps, looks like a lot of fun! The entry fee is very fairly priced, it will be happening in hall B&C and not the large A hall Wizard World is typically held in. It's looks to be very comic book centric, like an old school comic con that focuses on, comic books, artists, writers and not t.v. show celebrities. Kids Are Out Of School! Take'm To A Con! Come Check It Out!
Comic Con Revolution
It's a week later and I miss the heck out of C2E2 already. What a fantastic time! seeing old and new faces, a huge THANK YOU! to all who stopped by and purchased my art it's always humbling to hear peoples kind sentiments toward my work. I wish I could do more walking around during the show to take more pics but I really love being behind my table, I would really hate for one of my pieces to sell and not be there to hand it to them. Thank you all again! I'm already looking forward to next year! Please enjoy the pics below.
Next stop, Heroes and Villains!
What a killer comic convention NWI is, Thanks to everyone who came out, braved the weather to support this con, us artists and comic vendors. Special thanks to all the new comers who purchased my art and to my repeat customers who bought more art this year and to those who just stopped by to say hi. I hope to be back next year! Next Con C2E2!

Welp, word of who’s in and who’s not in for C2E2 was sent out Nov. 19th and for the third year in a row I have been declined. Now, this does not mean I’m completely out of the picture. Even though I have not made it past C2E2’s first round of cuts, in the end, I have been part of the show. So it’s gunna be another year of hustling to get in for the 2019 show but I’m going for it! I’ll keep you up to date with my progress.
