Superheroes!

Last weekend, I crashed the Big Apple Con with Joe and Paolo. I had a few things to sell, but cons like that aren't really my audience...I did manage one sketch request (THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU). Ladies and Gentlemen, Wonder Woman:
I love drawing superheroes...I guess it's because I never really get to. While I was sitting behind the table, I doodled up some other stuff:




Paolo watercolored the Spidey one for me!

I have a feeling 2010 might be the year of the con; Joe and I are planning to go all out (we might even do San Diego con). Who knows? Once we figure out our schedule, I'll be sure to post about way ahead of time. Ok, back to drawing comics!

I'd love to see a superhero comic drawn by you! First choice: AquaMaris, second choice: Wonder Woman.

I would be psyched to do ANYTHING superhero-related! But my dream comic would feature either Black Canary or Batgirl.

I've been actively yearning for a Maris superhero title ever since I saw your cowgirl Wonder Woman on Project: Rooftop. You got a lot of what the superheroes desperately need.

.. I found the link for your blog on another site, and I just wanted to say that I really like your comics/doodles!

I can't believe you only snagged one request. Those kids didn't know what they were missing, I'm sure.

I love your Wonder Woman and Black Canary.

I will see you at SPX next year and I will start thinking about which superhero to request as a sketch now.

Thanks everyone!

I've been on a superhero kick as of late; I'm glad to hear that they're well received!

Look for more soon...

hello! my name is jeremy...im the guy that you did the Wonder Woman commission for at Big Apple Con. Thanks again! Your style rocks like punk rocks. Thanks for writing down your blog address and email address on that little piece of paper for me. Cannot.Wait. to get another commission from you.

arigato.

Hi Jeremy!

Thanks again for the commission; it makes me super-happy to do superhero commission (most because it's not something that happens very often)! I eagerly await any more superheroes (or supervillains) that you'd like to commission from me. Just shoot me an e-mail.

cheers,
maris

Hey Maris,

Just discovered your work through Paolo's blog but I met you briefly at the con.

Love seeing your style applied to heroes and villains. Black Canary looks so cool and badass with those body proportions. I can't help but hear old girl-group music (or the Ramones) when looking at it.

I'd give you a Black Canary book if I could.

Hi Michael!

Thanks for the compliments! I'm glad you like my Maris-style superheroes. I secretly dream of doing a main-stream superhero story (and I totally love Black Canary...I always think of her as punk rock, so I'm glad you get Ramones-vibes from her).

Cheers!

I love your rendition of Black Canary, mainly because of her thick legs. Gorgeous! I'd love to see a superheroe comic, or any comic from you. I'll keep an eye out for your work.
