Two awesome shows are coming up and I'm taking advanced orders for my full color painted commissions. PHOENIX in early June and then HEROES in mid June are now open. It's my preference to do most pieces in advance. What you'll get is my best, in my home, comfortable with no distractions. Conventions are hard places to do your best work. Plus all pieces will be ready for pickup at the start of the show. Use the "commission info" page to see about rates and the "contact me" page to set it up. Comic blanks will have to be done on site. thanks.
I'm really excited to introduce my own stamp line through STAMPERS ANONYMOUS...THE ART OF BRETT WELDELE.
The launch will contain six cling sets. All the sets have a retro flair with steampunk and rockabilly concepts. The last one is a texture/ transition set. I wanted them to be a bit playful, even tongue-in-cheek. All are hand designed images.
I'll be at the CHA Mega Show in Anaheim, California January 11-13. Come say Hi!
Here's a sneak peek at the sets!
Two big shows are coming up and I'm ready to have a blast at both. First up is Rose City Comic Con in Portland and then New York Comic Con in October. That means i'll be doing full color, painted commissions, of course. :) Use the "commission info" page to see my rates and the "contact me" page to set up the piece. All pre-orders will be available to pick up at the start of the show. Thanks.
For the second year in a row, I sadly won't be at the sprawling San Diego Comic Con. That doesn't mean San Diego can't come to you though. For one week only, I'm offering 9x12 Distress Ink headshots for only $40 shipped in the U.S! International add $15.

So, I was going through some SD cards recently and found that I had filmed myself painting something I'd forgotten about. It's a 10"x15" Steampunk Distress Ink painting! You may recognize the piece from a recent blog entry over at timholtz.com. You can read more about that here.
In the meantime, I talk a little bit about the creation of this piece in the video.
Hey, it's been awhile since i've uploaded a video. Oh, how time flies! Anyways, here's the first (of many)!
You know you can use various Distress Inks with each other, and Distress Paints with other Distress Paints, but did you know they work really well as a team? Acrylic and Dye Ink make some interesting things together. This and more in this first Distress Paint video...enjoy.
Whew! Just got back from having an amazing show at Chicago's C2E2. Just as i'm catching my breath from that, it's time to open up pre-orders for Heroes Con in Charlotte. If you've ever thought about getting one of my Distress Ink paintings, now's a great time before rates will have to go up. See the commission page for details on how to set one up. See you in just over a month. :)
Today, we're going to take what we learned in the Monochromatic tutorial and turn it up a notch. Enter Complementary colors.
What's a Complement? Simply, two colors that face each other on the color wheel. Blue/Orange, Red/Green, Purple/Yellow etc. We'll get into more depth in later tutorials, but just know that they are color opposites!
So how does this apply to coloring? One very powerful coloring technique I use a lot is using complements against each other to achieve easy contrast. I'll show you what I mean in this example.
This show is coming fast! If you'll be at Chicago and would like one of my Distress Ink paintings, now's the time. Every pre-order will be done in advance, so you can pick it up right away. I love doing these! It's such fun to figure out my take on your favorite characters.
Please note: I'm not sure how many commissions I'll take at the show, but I won't be doing the larger sizes on site...so if you want something bigger than a 10"x15", Pre-order! :)
You can find a price list on the COMMISSION INFO page.
Use the CONTACT ME page to set it up.
Side Note: I'll also be at Texas Frightmare in Dallas the next weekend. I won't be set up anywhere, but I can bring pre-orders with me and meet up on site.
Tomorrow morning I hit the road and drive up to Seattle for The Emerald City Comic Con! Whooo. I haven't been to this show in 3 years (crazy!) but I had a great time at it. Looking forward to this one where I'll be set up at table P-12 along with Spontaneous co-creator Joe Harris.
I'll have originals, books and prints. Speaking of prints, I'll have over 20 different images to choose from. All 11x17 and the printer knocked it out of the park. They're beautiful! :)
See you there! next stop C2E2 in Chicago.
