July's a busy month for me- here's what's going on...

So first off, my very limited exclusive covers for Titan's two new Doctor Who series are available to order for folks in the US, UK and Canada:…  If you preorder before their street date of July 23rd, you can get them $5 off and signed by me. Also due to the positive response, the run has been upped from 500 copies each to 1000- so hopefully everyone who's after one can get one. :)

I'll be signing in-store at Heroes and Fantasies in San Antonio on July 26th from about 10 AM- 5 PM.    

And in the interests of advance promotion, I'll be at Austin's Capital City Comic Con July 11th-13th, courtesy of Heroes and Fantasies (I'll be one table over from Simon Bisley!!!).

SDCC! one con I WON'T be at.  But it will be where the new CHEW special WARRIOR CHICKEN POYO debuts (its general street date for everywhere else is July 30th).  I did a Poyo pin-up for it (my first work for Image!) which I dare say I'm pretty happy with.  I'm a huge fan of CHEW (and you should be too!), so it was a huge honor to do even a single page of art for it. 

While DA's my main haunt on the web, I probably don't promote my Tumblr account enough, so here's a link:  I try to save the big stuff for DA, while Tumblr is where I post things like morning warm-up sketches and what not.  Right now I'm working on a massive Doctor Who commission for my friend Mark Dominic- a group shot of almost every Doctor Who companion from A (for Adric) to Z (for Zog).  I'm knocking this out bit by bit every day by drawing one or two companions as warm-up sketches.  The final piece will be posted here, but to see each individual sketch as they get finished, you'll need to follow me there.  

So far I've posted Turlough, Lucie Miller, Strax, Handles, the Ponds, Hex, Ben, Polly, Benny Summerfield, Tegan, Kamelion, Magenta Pryce, Oliver Harper and more.  Who's next?  Follow me and find out. ;) 

Hope everyone's doing well and had a happy 4th (if applicable). :)


Paul Hanley
Artist | Professional
United States
Stop-motion movie-maker, commercial artist, and sort-of-pro comic artist. Occasionally doing various covers for IDW's GODZILLA comics and IRIS WILDTHYME's various series from Obverse Books and Big Finish Productions.

For those wondering- yes, I do some commissions from time to time- when the money and subject matter is right. I'm not one of those artists who'll draw Power Girl high-kicking Lady Death for X amount of $ (well, unless it's a VERY big X), but when it's a cool project- absolutely! I usually don't do it in a way where someone just throws an idea at me and I draw it exactly- I usually prefer to "cook up" an idea between me and the commissioner (otherwise, it's too much like "real" work). I'm willing to hear anything out, though!

Price-wise, it's all over the place. It all depends on size, complexity, effort, etc. Just keep in mind, I don't take on anything for less than $60, as it's just not worth it on a time/ money basis.

I don't do fanzines or other non-paying gigs. Sorry.

Current Residence: the outskirts of Austin, Texas (in Leatherface Country)
Favourite genre of music: Punk (up until about '84)
Favourite photographer: Berenice Abbott
Skin of choice: leopard or coral?

I am sorry to have to inform this to you, but I'm afraid that your art is so good that I have no choice but to add you as devwatch :)

On the subject of your Ruth Wilson Doctor; I'm not using the EXACT character, she won't be the 12th incarnation of my Doctor, but i'm really inspired by the character; you will still be credited with everything there is to credit, if you'll still let me use her.

Thanks for the fave, Paul!

No prob, man.  I've seen your stuff around before, and I dig it. :)
JakeEkiss Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2014
Same to ya, sir! Don't suppose you're going to be around Heroes Con this year?
PaulHanley Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2014  Professional
No, sadly- just Texas area stuff for the rest of 2014.  Right now the schedule is Capital City Comic Con in July, San Antonio Wizard in August, Alamo City in September, and Austin Wizard in October.  Out-of-state stuff is still too much of a financial stretch for me, but hopefully next year I'll be able to manage it.
