08/23/05: Personal Sketch Card Update|
I am currently not taking any new orders for personal sketch cards. I have too much on my plate this summer and I'm already falling behind on the orders I do have. However, this is only a temporary closing of shop. Keep an eye on my website & blog and I'll announce when they're available to order again. Thanks! 08/01/05: Wizard World Chicago
I'm sure anyone regularly checking my site will already know this, but I'll be in Artists Alley at the Wizard World Chicago comic convention this weekend. I believe my table number is 9084, you should be able to find me pretty easily. I'm sharing a table with Jessica Hickman and I'll be there from Thursday night to Sunday. Stop on by, say hi. I'll have predrawn sketch cards for sale, a few actual Revenge of the Sith sketch cards, and sketchbooks, so you'll be able to get your hands on some Grant goodies. I'm not sure yet if I'll be doing commissioned sketches for anyone. It's possible I may do a limited number of them for a couple of the days, but I really have to get a feel for how crazy it's gonna be first. I don't want to disappoint any fans, but at the same time this is my first big convention and I want to socialize and check the place out, so it'll be learn-as-I-go :) Hope to see you there! If you need any info on the convention, click the link -- it should have all the details for ya. 07/14/05: Free Fan Art Sketchbook
I created a second, smaller sketchbook filled with fan art sketches. It has Star Wars characters, Wolverine, Batman, Hellboy, etc. At the Chicago & Minnesota comic conventions, if you buy my 'Drekodinn Concepts' book you'll get a copy of this one FREE. Schweeet deal, eh? ;) 07/11/05: Convention Sketchbooks Available!
For those of you who won't be at either the Chicago Wizard World convention or the Minnesota FallCon (or if you just want your copy before everyone else) my fantasy sketchbook is now available online! Just click on the ad to order a copy:
Hi, everyone -- Thought I'd check in with an update. I've been finishing up a new convention sketchbook, which I'll be selling at the Chicago Wizard World Convention and the Minnesota FallCon. For those of you who won't be hitting the conventions, they'll be available to order online too. I've also been doing my best to keep up with personal sketch card orders, so thank you to everyone who's ordered one (or more). I'm trying to get them drawn and sent out ASAP. All in all, things are pretty busy, but I can't complain. I'll be back with more news soon! :) 05/31/05: Personal Sketch Card Gallery
I started up a personal sketch card gallery so that I can display some of the ones I've drawn for people. To check it out, just go to the "sketch cards" section of my site and you'll see the link right on that page. 05/13/05: Personal Sketch Cards Available Again!

This is very exciting to me. Not only is he a friend of mine, but I recently completed some concept art for his latest film project, so I kinda feel like part of his filmworks family now. :)

02/22/05: Convention Appearances
I'm pretty excited about this year's comic conventions -- I'll have personal sketch cards available, plus some new goodies for sale. As of now, I'll have tables at three of this year's shows: The MN MicroCon (April 24), Wizard World Chicago (August 5-7), and The Minnesota FallCon (October 8-9, I think). The sites don't have much in the way of info yet, but as we get closer to summer they should be updating more. I'll post any news I can along the way :)
My new art blog is open: grantgoboom.blogspot.com! I'll be posting all new artwork over there, so check it out.
01/23/05: Sketch Cards Completed!
I've finished the sketch cards -- Soon they'll be on their way to Topps. It feels great to be done, though I'm sure I'm gonna miss the experience. Hopefully the next time they produce something like this (if there is a next time) I'll get to do it again :)

01/10/05: I'm an official Lucasfilm-Approved Sketch Artist!!!
Thanks to my pal Tom Hodges, I've been offered a part-time gig with Lucasfilm and Topps creating sketchcards for the upcoming 'Revenge of the Sith' card set. This is extremely exciting for me, since, you know, I pretty much live and breathe Star Wars. As of this week I'm just getting started on the sketches, so it'll be a little while before I can show them off. But as soon as I can, I will :)
