Patrick Ballesteros San Diego Comic-Con 2024 Exclusives, Debuts, & More [UPDATE June 18]

Artist Patrick Ballesteros is a must-stop on the list of many San Diego Comic-Con attendees’ for a reason. His signature kid-friendly style and whimsical interpretations of some of the most beloved pop culture have generated lines to rival those of several large panel rooms. This year, he’ll be back in his usual spot of #DD-08 in Artists Alley, with new exclusives, debuts, commissions, mini originals, and more.

[UPDATE June 18]

One of the best things about San Diego Comic-Con is that if you ask 100 people why they’re at the convention, you would probably get 100 different answers. The convention is all about celebrating who you are and whatever you’re into — and it doesn’t matter if the person next to you isn’t into it too, because they still understand that indescribable feeling of being excited about something and being part of a community.

In his latest exclusive, Ballesteros tries to capture that feeling with his “All Are Welcome” piece, an 11″x11″ print. It will be available all days of the con including Preview Night for $35, and each of the LE 275 is printed on linen paper and comes signed and numbered with an official seal.

[UPDATE June 11]

Ballesteros has a mission for you: gear up and dive into Booth #DD-08 in Artists Alley to secure his latest print. This open edition 8″x14″ print, titled “HELL YEA!”, celebrates your favorite game, from the bug-splattering action to the cyborg-smashing teamwork. You can claim yours to level up your con for $27.

[UPDATE June 7]

You’re going to want to “stick” around for Ballesteros’ next x-citing announcement. Each day of the con (Thursday-Sunday), he will be unleashing a new daily 3″x3″ sticker. Each design is limited to just 50 pieces, and will be available for $4 each, while supplies last.

To know which sticker will be available each day, you’ll need to follow along with Ballesteros on Twitter or Instagram, where he will be unveiling that day’s option each morning of the con.
