The Art of Laura Truxillo
Call me Truxi
I draw things and put them here. And sometimes I don't. I'm very mysterious like that.

Sometimes those things are superheroes. Sometimes those things are gangsters. Sometimes those things are other things. Mysterious!

  #Love our tiny faces of intense concentration!    #Have we done googly eyes AND dicks at the same time tho?    #Someone else's art  

Beach time!  Goin’ to the beach with mah family for the weekend!

  #Will still probably spend 90% of it inside reading/drawing    #Not really a beach person    #but I haven't had a family vacation in years    #and who knows when we'll get the chance again    #VACATION  

Hookay, so Heroes Con post.  Only…what, nearly two weeks later?  For once I did not get con crud (or the ultra-fun of Food Poisoning post WWNOLA), but I did sort of slam into a wall of exhaustion, dayjob work and family things.  So, apologies to everyone I haven’t gotten in touch with yet—I’m getting there, I swear.

I’m not used to my new phone, so only a couple of commissions, but these two were definitely my favorite.  I don’t draw Nightcrawler nearly enough, and any con where somebody gets me to draw Booster and Beetle is a good con.

ONCE AGAIN I missed the supposedly perfect Booster and Beetle guys that apparently wander everywhere but by my booth.  But seeing such perfect Blue and Gold ladies more than made up for it.  Aren’t they fantastic?  Little Skeets and everything!
Had to snap a picture of the Rogues, because, well…Rogues.  Even if it is nuCold. ;)  Get a kick out of seeing anyone doing Trickster and Mirror Master.And y’all, that Miles.  Look at him.  LOOK AT HIM.  Firstly, that is such a great Spidey pose.  But secondly, y’all I wish it was a better photo.  The effort he put into the little details of it, the printing coming out just right—it truly is a perfect Spider-man costume.  Just…perfect.

Had such a great time.  Heroes is always such a fantastic show with wonderful, friendly people.  Kelly Sue DeConnick set up a walk Friday morning, and honestly, that’s a fantastic way to start the con.  Whether she does it again or not next year, I’m making that my con tradition—meet nice people, walk around a lovely city, take pictures of the Disco Chicken… I got to meet flatbear and her beautiful wife marchingjaybird, who were both so very nice.  (Also got Ted Kord drawings from flatbear and gregorydickens!)  I’m reminded that Maris Wicks is an absolute treasure (not that you can forget—her art is just so perfectly smile-inducing every time).  I don’t know if Joe Quinones always looks startled or if I always startle him, but either way, both of them were kind enough to help us out with Tape of Packing Salvation (and last-minute signing of Bloodspell—so freaking gorgeous).  Finally picked up a copy of princelesscomic, and now I understand what all the fuss was about.  Caught up with old college friends and folks I haven’t seen in years. 

Oof.  There were so many cool things and people that it all kinda blurred together.  I was hoping that when I finally got around to writing the post, I’d have my brain together, but that hasn’t happened yet.

Sorry I’ve been scattered, y’all.  It’s been a weird summer.  Hopefully get back to posting art-things soon.  Thanks to everyone who stopped by the table and picked up something, or squeed over Avengers and Pacific Rim fandom with me, or just said hi.  Y’all all made it a great con!

Today is my last day on staff at Wired.com, but I’m really, really glad that this is the note I’m going out on. <3

HUZZAH!

A 14-hour drive, but I made it to Charlotte, safe and mostly sane.  I’m gonna go pass out now.  See you cats at Heroes Con.  Table 1913—come say hi!

The second print finished for this year&#8217;s Heroes Con, and a staunch reminder to myself that I hate coloring and am really bad at doing it quickly or simply.
Mostly, though, I just wanted an excuse to draw Spider-Woman in a twisty spider-pose, because if I were here, I would be in absurd twisty poses, like, 90% of the time, just to be weird.  Mad love for Jess.
Stop by and see me&#8212;Table 1913!  (Yeah, it says 2026 on the site, but supposedly that&#8217;s going to change, so&#8230;yup.)

Shoot, I drew this almost a year ago after seeing @djspider as Barda at last year&#8217;s Heroes Con.  Y&#8217;all, she is Barda.  I fully believed she could punch a dragon.
Incidentally, these two are my DC OTP.  Scott/Barda and Mortia/Gomez are pretty much my ideal relationship model.  A terrifying, tough, amazonian lady and a short(er) genius who&#8217;s passionately in love with her.  What&#8217;s not to like?

Change of pace

Okay, I figure with a new domain name and everything, now is as good a time as any to try to return this tumblr to what it was originally supposed to be—an art blog.  My personal blog, for all the reblogs and fandom-talk is truxi-twice, and I’ll actually be using it.  Though to be honest, I’m weak, and nerdy fan-rants/occasional life-stuff will still probably sneak their way here..  Or anything particularly important or relevant.  But mostly art and project-type stuff.

For anyone getting to this point who just wants to check out the art in between all the reblogs from before, here’s a link to my art tag.  And just because, here’s a project tag for Lucky Little Bugs.

Alright, art time.  Let’s do this!

Some caricatures of our Drink and Draw sketchgroup crew

Whee! It’s me!

The one in the middle is a distressingly accurate caricature of me.  All of them are spot-on, really (it&#8217;s just that&#8217;s distressing, y&#8217;know).

This year HeroesCon is proud to display the first published comic strip art from Bill Watterson in nearly twenty years! Watterson completed his inimitable Calvin and Hobbes strip in 1995, and has since remained largely private in his life and art. If you happened to read Stephan Pastis‘ popular Pearls Before Swine strip this week, you may have noticed that Pastis employed a guest artist, billed as a second grade girl named Libby, to help him with three strips. Astute readers speculated about the true identity of the guest artist, and today the Washington Post revealed it to be none other than the legendary Bill Watterson!
In conjunction with Chris Sparks and Team Cul de Sac, we are happy to be bringing all three Watterson and Pastis strips to Charlotte to display at HeroesCon, June 20 through 22 at the Charlotte Convention Center. The art will be displayed on the convention floor all weekend, at our Drink and Draw event on Friday night, and at Saturday night’s Art Auction.   We’ll also be hosting a panel on Friday, June 20 where fans will get to hear the story of how this remarkable art was produced, how it came to be featured in Charlotte, and the part that Cul de Sac cartoonist Richard Thompson plays in all of it.
The three strips produced by Watterson and Pastis will be auctioned off in the coming months, with all proceeds from the sale going to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. This charity works closely with our good friends at Team Cul de Sac, for whom we host our annual HeroesCon Drink and Draw charity event. More specifics regarding the auction of these pieces will be available at HeroesCon, here on our site and at Team Cul de Sac‘s page in the coming weeks.
HeroesCon is the only place anyone will be able to see the rare Watterson and Pastis original art in person before they are auctioned off. This is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity for comic and art fans across the country, and we are humbled and honored to be bringing it to Charlotte.
HeroesCon takes place June 20 – 22 at the Charlotte Convention Center. The Bill Watterson and Cul de Sac panel takes place Friday, June 20 at 5:30 at the convention center.
