Thank you, Dragon Con & My latest Endeavors by Denise Vasquez

"Droid Hunt" by Denise Vasquez



Hi everyone,

First I'd like to thank everyone @Dragon Con who stopped by my table in The Walk Of Fame "Comic Pop Artists Alley", and also to those that made it to my panels!

It was TRULY a pleasure meeting everyone I crossed paths with!

Dragon Con was AMAZING for me personally, in every way imaginable!

I debuted 4 Versions of my "Pepper The Dragon" which all received a GREAT response!!! I still can't believe I'm the first person to EVER debut or release a dragon @Dragon Con!!!

I was commissioned to do some pieces during the con and managed to get them all finished ahead of schedule! It was not easy, but I did it and my customers were VERY pleased with the results!

All of my panels were FANTASTIC!!! I really enjoyed them ALL for different reasons!

I LOVED moderating & interviewing Randy Martinez, Matt Busch, Cat Staggs & Brian Denham on the Sketch Card Panel! I prepared with a list of questions which I presented to each artist...Hearing about the sketch card industry's progression from the artists perspective was very informative, interesting and overdue!!! I wish the sessions were video recorded...maybe next year!

My promotion panel was a BIG HIT & I'm glad to know that I was able to inspire & help those of you that have been writing to thank me for sharing my knowledge!

The quick sketch contest that Randy & I were invited to judge was pretty spectacular! There were two age groups , each having two categories (best character & best comic page)...I was sooooo impressed by the caliber of talent~EVERYONE's work was REALLY good which made Randy & my job quite difficult! PBS was there filming the event & they interviewed both Randy & I. At the end of the contest, the winners were presented with beautiful certificates in plaques along with artwork donated by Randy & I

Now that I'm back home I've been playing catch up with work! I'm sooo happy I got a lot of work done before we left! Here's what I've been working on:

-Co-Authoring "SKETCHCARDMANIA" for IMPACT BOOKS
-I collaborated with Randy Martinez & Andy Price on "Spiderman Archives" sketch cards for Rittenhouse
-Clone Wars Wide Vision sketch cards
-Pepper The Dragon Items
-"Ambassador Of Peace" to be auctioned for Wonder Woman Day IV
-"Droid Hunt" for 501st Droid Hunt in Little Rock, AR
-Commissions
-Preparing for Star Wars Fan Days III next month

And I have a LOT of wonderful things in the works so stay tuned!!!

I am accepting commissions for Star Wars Fan Days III, so if you're interested, be sure to message me for details!


Thank you all for your continued love & support & keep in touch!!!
