fun facts about me

My photo
los angeles, ca, United States
My name is Dave Davenport, but I am sometimes known as "Dogspunk", and sign my artwork "DDOG". I've been tattooing since 1996 and making comic books since 2004. In a past life I animated video games. To view galleries of my work, visit my website and click on the teeth menu on the left...

bed-time reading.

At SD comic-con this year i gleefully spent my comic-book budget all on the first day at the 2000ad table. I've begun tearing through it in chronological order, which would be the latest "complete case files", #19, collecting work from mid-1993, much of which I had never read before.
Brian Bolland's cover art. Bolland did no interior art.

It seems this was towards the end of a years-long low point for the character of Judge Dredd, and it is just plain boring. Even the stuff written by John Wagner has artwork that is just painful to look at. Kudos to 2000ad for doing so much fully painted (as in with paint) artwork during the early '90s, but damn there's a lot of crap there. Can't wait to get through it, but it just puts me to sleep immediately and so I am taking a really long time to get to the end :(

Art high point #1-Ezquerra drawn "Inferno" written by Grant Morrion .

Art high point #2- Ron Smith, an artist whose work I once upon a time I did not care for. Silly Me.

SD comic-con

I'll be in San Diego for Comic-con over the next few days. It's the first time in a while I am not going as "marginalized publications".  I'll mainly be there as a promoter of Bent-Con, recruiting artists for the gallery show and for the contest to name the iconic characters (see card below). Also looking for sponsors and what-not. Bent-con will have a space at the Prism booth (#2144).

Secondarily, I'll be there as a Judge Dredd fan. The film "Dredd" comes out in september, and 2000ad, rebellion, and IDW are all having a big JD presence: panels, signings, et al.. Plus an advance screening of the film that I won tickets to.
Next year we will revert to our regularly scheduled convention schedule of tabling at a booth selling my wares.
See you there!
