If you hadn’t guessed yet, we’ll just tell you: Here at the San Diego Comic-Con Unofficial Blog, we’re big fans of artist Patrick Ballesteros, whose work you might recognize from The Late Late Show with James Corden or from his Punny Sweater series or his 25 Cent Wonders collection.
Ballesteros has been a mainstay in Artists Alley at both San Diego Comic-Con and WonderCon Anaheim for several years, and this year is no different, as you can find him at Artists Alley DD-08 on the show floor.
He’ll be debuting his new sketchbook, “Drawing a Sketchy Life”, at his booth this year. The new, 100-page sketchbook features a behind-the-scenes look into his art, with drawings from his trip to Japan, convention commissions, tutorials, and drawing demos. There’s even Father and Son sketching, as well as a sneak peek at a future project. The sketchbook also contains commentary, so you can learn more about Ballesteros’ process.
You can pick it up at Artists Alley DD-08 for $25, and each sketchbook comes with a free sketch that he will draw on-site.
Additionally, Ballesteros is bringing his “The Tug of War Wakanda” print – which, while not new, is the first time you can pick it up at a convention. The 18″x4.5″ pearl linen paper print will retail for $25.
