TEEN TITANS' Starfire con sketch by AdamWarren
TEEN TITANS' Starfire con sketch
On the eve of my last convention of the year (FanExpo in Toronto, Aug. 28-31), here's a somewhat lo-res cellphone pic of one of my favorite sketches from an earlier show this year (BigWow in San Jose, to be specific). Yeahp, it's my very first sketch of Teen Titans' Starfire, cranked out on a late-night bartop and based (a bit loosely) on the animated version my old bud Glen Murakami developed. Worked out pretty well, IMHO, given the timeframe and, uh, working conditions.

Hello, there! I'll soon be heading up to Toronto to attend FanExpo Canada on August 28-31, after missing out on the show last year. General FanExpo info here: fanexpocanada.com/

I'll be tabling somewhere in Artist's Alley for all your signing, sketching and saying-hi needs. No panels, no shenanigans, just four days of straight behind-the-table time, guaranteed! If you're missing any Empowered volumes, I should have plenty on hand, as I'm planning to sell backstock from fine local comics emporium The Beguiling at my table, as I did at TCAF a few months back. (If I recall correctly, they had a surprising stash of long out-of-print Dirty Pair: Run from the Future TPBs as well...) 

I'll have a healthy supply of my 2011 sketchbook Empowered: Extra Sketchiness on hand, in case you never snagged a copy. Some images from the 28-page book:
 EMPOWERED+NINJETTE hi-contrast by AdamWarren EMPOWERED's vorppy Emp by AdamWarren Ridd1e's EMPOWERED cosplay by AdamWarren

I'll also be hauling along original art of various sorts, from cheap(ish) roughs to cover art to that one giant clump of Dirty Pair vellum-based inks that no one ever wants to buy, alas. Plus, I'm almost certainly taking on some sweet commissions while I'm there, along the lines of these 2012 pieces:

Side note: A little birdie (that is, Twitter) tells me that a badass Ninjette cosplayer will be attending the show, so keep your eyes peeled for her if you're clawing through the crowded convention floor next week!

Greetings Mr. Adam Warren  I just wanted to say thank you for the awesome work you have done in your Empowered series.  I have been collecting it ever since I discovered it at an anime con I was at a couple of years back. 

I had not even thought to look to see if you where on Devianart until I came across a piece by :icondarkereve: who had done a tribute piece to your work on The Dirt Pair, another awesome series that I really need to find and read.   I look forward to future Empowered high jinks and wanted to say  Thank you for creating an Awesome Comic series.I salute you!

Big fan of Empowered and have all the volumes and one shots. The latest "internal Medicine", however, is a disappointment. The color art by Brandon Graham is horrible. It looks like something an elementary school art student might churn out. The black and white was as good as always, but the color was a real let down.
