Sketches from last weekend at the PHILADELPHIA WIZARD WORLD Comic Con

I´m back home after a busy weekend in Philadelphia. I´ve atended my very first convention in the United States and it´s been great. After 7 years working for DC it was time to go make a visit.

Thanks to all the people that stopped at my table to say hi and get a signature, maybe drawing, or just chat a bit. Everybody was very nice and I was overhelmed by the positive feedback from fans. I also had the chance to say hi to some people and fellow artists I met there for the first time. Of course thanks to the Wizarld World guys for inviting me there and have this show so well organized.

I tried to do my best with the commissioned sketches for fans I did there. Here you can see some of them. Please apologize the rush, I´m still not used to the pressure of drawing in a busy place:

Freelancer again!

At the end of July I will no longer be a DC exclusive artist. I never made any big announcement when I signed the exclusivity 6 years ago (or I did?), and probably nobody cares about it, but I've been rejecting gigs from time to time, so I guess it makes sense that I tell the world I'm a freelancer again.
I won't be available at all though, I'm already busy. In the last year I've been working on a creator owned book for belgian publisher Dupuis in collaboration with writer Thilde Barboni and I'll need the rest of this year to finish it. That's why I've been doing so few interior art for DC lately. I was allowed by DC to work on that side project, and they even offered me an exclusivity renewal knowing I was more focused on that non-DC book. But at that point I thought it didn't make sense to be a DC exclusive artist if I wasn't going to work for them in a monthly book.
But I'm not leaving DC. I hope I'm not! Maybe I've been doing the best work for hire you can find in comics industry. To me it's been quite fair. From my first book I've been very attached to the Bat-family, surrounded by great editors, and I've been given the chance to draw most of the characters I've enjoyed as a reader. Now things have changed a bit, and I'm starting to feel the need to come back to my own comics, with my own scripts, and that's something I've found very difficult to get in US. 
But I'll be doing some work for hire from time to time as long as they're willing to hire me. Actually I'll be taking care of the Phantom Stranger covers, plus some other cover from time to time. We'll see.
Thank you for reading, see you in the funny pages!
