Under the Tents: Val Hochberg, Ghoulish Bunny Studios, Sean Forney, Camilla d’Errico

It’s officially one week until SDCC 2019. Just seven short days stand between you and the awesomeness we have in today’s Under the Tents. Martin Kove is telling you to sweep the leg, Val Hochberg an adorable niche piece, Scott Hattox finished the second half of his Venom/Carnage painting, and so much more.

Here’s a look at what you might have missed:

  • NECA Toys is showing no mercy at Booth #3145. Meet the man who told Johnny to sweep the leg, Martin Kove, who played Kobra Kai’s sensei John Kreese in the original The Karate Kid, and pick up a signed action figure on Friday, July 19 from 1:00PM to 3:00PM PT.

  • I’m flying blind on a rocket cycle! Scratch Builder pays homage to the classic 1980 Flash Gordon with their 1/6 scale model Rocket Cycle they’re bringing to SDCC. Gather your forces and storm Ming’s castle before he marries Dale and destroys the Earth.


  • Viktorya Roze Tassi, better known as “Sgt. Swift Stitch”, will once again be wandering SDCC in search of cosplayers in dire need of on-site costume repair. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find her, maybe you can hire… no, you don’t have to hire her; her services are free of charge.


  • There’s a Red House over yonder at Small Press Table #O-12 who has a great offer for SDCC attendees. For every purchase of $35, you will receive a free discontinued 8″ x 10″ print. Who can say no to an adorable puppy, kitten, or bunny print?


  • Artist Jennette Brown pays tribute to the late Alan Rickman as the enigmatic Professor Severus Snape with her new button she’ll have available at Table #DD-14.


  • Artist N.C. Winters heard his fans and is giving them what they want at Booth #4619 – he’ll have 30 hand-embellished prints with him for SDCC.


  • Visit Camilla d’Errico’s Booth #4723 and pick up one of her mystery bags that will have stickers, enamel pins, and could contain rare/discontinued art. These will go super fast.


  • While you’re wandering Artists’ Alley, visit Caleb King at Table #DD-09 to find some great artwork. He’ll have new prints, his new book, Iconic, and 50 of his signed and numbered SDCC exclusive Kylo Ren prints.



  • Girls Drawing Girls is dropping some science at Booth #5628 with their new book, Scientific Facts. They’ll have five SDCC exclusives from their book available at their booth as well.


  • If you can spot artist E.M. Gist around SDCC, he may have something for you. He’ll be giving away contributor copies of Dark Horse’s Stranger Things comic book with his cover art to those who spot him.


  • It’s not exactly shiny, but it did arrive just in time. The California Browncoats are celebrating Comic-Con’s 50th con with their SDCC exclusive tote bags. They only made 50 of these, so get to Booth #A-7/A-9 super fast if you don’t want to be left out.


  • Not only does he have America’s A–, he’s worthy of ruling Asgard as well. Sean Forney is bringing his Captain America sketch cover to Table #BB-05 in Artists’ Alley.


  • If you’re more into the friendly neighborhood type of superhero, Forney will also have a Spider-Man piece with him at Table #BB-05.


If you know who Revan and Malak are, you should visit Val Hochberg at Table #N-12 in Small Press. You’ll find this adorable “niche fan-art piece” there and just might make a new friend.


  • Heavy Metal, Booth #1529, is bringing an art print designed by Dan Mumford to SDCC this year. They’re only bringing 200 with them and will have a limited amount available online, but these will go faster than speed metal power chords.


  • The folks behind Disney’s Miraculous Ladybug will be on-hand at Action Lab Booth #1737 following their panel to sign any purchases as well as fan art. No additional ticketing is required.


  • Diana Levin of Ghoulish Bunny Studios is taking commissions for her blank sketch covers to be picked up at Table #N-8 in Small Press. See our Commissions post for details on pricing and how to contact her.


  • You’ll find the Eleanorian Lip Pendant, designed by Kelly Sue DeConnick and Valentine De Landro, at Badali Jewelry’s Booth #715 along with a lot of other rebellious pieces.


  • Artist Scott Hattox finished the second part of his combined Venom/Carnage painting. If you have a lot of wall space, stop by Booth #1829 to find both halves. He’ll have prints available as well.
