"Dia de los Muertos Princesas"
Just in time for the month of Halloween, your favorite Disney princesses have been sugar skulled! Stop by the ZaPow! gallery in Asheville, NC for their Day of the Dead show, which the above artwork will be a part of, along with numerous other pieces by other talented ZaPow! artists. And while you're there, why not pick up a print or comic from my space? Good art is hard to come by.
I know some of you are screaming, "Well duh, Elizabeth! You should have had a Facebook page for your illustrations months ago!" Well, to you folks, I say great job hollering so loudly I could hear you over the internet, because I have taken your advice and finally done it: www.facebook.com/ekidderillustrator. Just don't expect a Twitter account any time soon, you guys really don't need to know what funny thing my cat does three times a day. Head on over and Like my Page, and you'll be rewarded with cool pictures of my art, regular updates on upcoming projects, and contests for discounts and swag.
In the DragonCon aftershocks, I've been busy, and I'm now ready to show you what I've got in store for you. After meeting several wonderful comic artists whose work I read in serial format online, I realized that as much as I can talk up my graphic novel Jannah Station, the best way to convince you, is to show you. So, every Monday, a new page of the first issue of "Jannah Station: A Soft Murder" will be uploaded for you, the viewers and readers. Feel free to follow along and share with your friends, and if you want to read ahead, you can buy all four issues digitally on Amazon. If you are looking for a physical copy, I am pleased to announce that ZaPow!, an illustrator's gallery in Asheville, NC is currently selling them, along with prints from the comic, and my own art. Ready to read? Just click the Robot Moses below!

DragonCon 2013 was a success! I got to finally see Artist Alley, where I met Yale Stewart, of JL8 fame, and attended a comedy seminar where I met Bill Corbet, of MST3K fame. I even got to be a part of a panel, "Raising the Robot" where I did a live-drawing session of robot sex and robot religion. :)
Life after the con has been a tumultuous up-and-down elevator (I don't like roller coasters). I've been offered a First Friday showing at the store Bliss downtown in December. I also sliced off a chunk of my middle finger and had to be taken to the emergency room for my first stitches ever. Don't worry, it was my left hand so, while awkward, it hasn't stopped me from my work, which includes a new series I'm developing to hang in my gallery in Asheville. I'll give you a hint - the theme of the show is Day of the Dead. More images to come next week, hope everyone had a sans-hospital Labor Day!
