Heroes Con: Ovah!
I'm back from the whirlwind that was Heroes Con, 2011, and I must say, I had a blast. Had a great time running around the city, meeting my favorite creators, and eating some darned good food. Not to mention making lots o' art.
Above is a painting I did of Black Canary at the show for Heroes' famous live art auction on Saturday. It unfortunately didn't make it to the Saturday auction however, on account of there being so many entries this year, and was instead auctioned off on Sunday...C'est la vie.
While we're on the topic of Black Canary though, I thought we might take one last look at the fishnet-clad siren -
It's Maris Wicks in full re-designed Black Canary regalia(!), Canary Crying at none other than Ming Doyle (dressed as Lady Thor). Ming, who showcased her Thor duds recently at Boston Comic Con, was an influence and inspiration to Maris, who decided the Thursday before the show to go to the con dressed as Dinah.
Little did we know she would not be alone --
Here is Maris side by side with amazing cosplayer, DJ Spider, who was sporting B.C.'s eighties costume.
