Just got back from Wizard World Portland. Had an amazing time. I did something I never do at shows. I did a portrait of one of the celebrities attending the show. Ksenia Solo played Kensi on the Canadian show “Lost Girl” that ran on the SyFy Channel in the states. Kensi is the spunky, streetwise and loyal sidekick to a succubus, Bo, fighting for the side of good in a hidden world of super gifted beings called ‘the fae”. The show was fun with a little cheese.. Kind of like the old saturday afternoon shows that use to run on WB, like Hercules, Xena, Andromedam Birds of Prey….
Anyway.. Kensi is 90% of what made the show. When I found out she was going to be at the show, I took a stab at drawing her.. 4 days later and a lot of detail.. I had something I was happy with.
I made 25 limited edition 12×18 signed and numbered prints for the show. Part of which I gave to Ksenia after hearing. from those who brought them to her to sign, how well she reacted to them. I even got her to sign one for me. 😉
Now I am considering whom to draw for upcoming shows. Maybe..
Next up for me is Wizard World Madison Wisconsin, Then Indianapolis, then Cleveland…..
