San Diego here I come!

I'll be at the San Diego comic-con this week, July 22 - 26. You will most often find me at the Archaia booth, which is #2635, right between the Image and Marvel booths (so that we can be ignored by fans of both). Here's a helpful map of the convention floor!

Also, I'll be at two events. The biggie is my DIGITAL PAINTING SEMINAR on Friday, where I'll be demonstrating my Photoshop and Painter techniques. Here's what the official blurb says:

Friday 6:30-7:30 Digital Painting Seminar: Patrick McEvoy (Starkweather: Immortal) demonstrates the art of digital painting with Adobe Photoshop and Corel Painter. Using examples from his work on the Marvel Style guide, a panel from Archaia's Starkweather, and a cover from BOOM! Studios' Fall of Cthulhu, Patrick will step through various techniques, starting from pencils and working up to a final rendering. Learn how to bring a fully painted look to your digital artwork! Room 30CDE

And the other is an Archaia comics panel on Thursday:

2:30-3:30 Archaia/Roddenberry Productions: Days Missing— Archaia Studios Press is now simply known as Archaia! Learn about the sci-fi titles the publisher has in store, such as Titanium Rain (with creators Josh Finney and Kat Rocha), Robotika (with creator Alex Sheikman), and Starkweather (with writer David Rodriguez and artist Patrick McEvoy). Then meet the creative dream team behind Days Missing, the new sci-fi comic miniseries from Archaia and Roddenberry Productions, the legendary company that brought you Star Trek. Get a sneak peek of exclusive covers and art, and learn more about storylines for upcoming issues. Panelists include Rod Roddenberry and Trevor Roth from Roddenberry Productions; Archaia’s Stephen Christy, Mark Smylie and Rob Levin; Chris Burnham (X-Men: Divided We Stand); Ian Edginton (Stormwatch); Phil Hester (The Darkness); David Hine (Batman: Battle for the Cowl); Frazer Irving (Batman and Robin); and Matz(The Killer). All attendees will receive a free copy of Days Missing#1! Room 3

Also, I'll be roaming about doing interviews for the Ninja Mountain podcast. So all in all it should be an exciting and fun week of fun excitement. Hope to see you there! If you happen to see me, come on over and say Hi - I'm almost as friendly as I look.
