Greetings and Salutations

Welcome to the redesigned ByronWinton.com! It’s bigger! More robust! Mobile friendly! Has the ability to comment, search, repost and share! I transplanted my Blogger Process Blog into this site in the Tutorial section. Also, there’s some other new features that have been added. Have a look around. Overall, it should be easier for me to update and incorporate new and fun things. There’s an excellent Shop here to nab all of your favorite prints, comics, CDs, trading cards, and other merchandise I have to offer. If your interested in a commissioned piece of art, please send an email to bwinton3@gmail.com so we can begin that dialog. Be sure to check out all of the various social media avenues… I tend to post different things on each. Don’t miss out on any of it.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look at the wild illustrative world I’ve immersed myself in.

Next weekend, March 4-6th, is the beginning of the convention season for me starting with HORROR REALM!!! It’s been 3 months. I’m pretty stoked to get back to it. If all goes well, I should have those Kickstarted Trading Cards with me, a couple new prints, a bunch of marker drawings, and some new paintings to sneak peaks at. Come out if you’re in the area!

Face Cards: Killer Babes
KICKSTARTER Launch!

header

Well it’s finally live! My Kickstarter campaign for the trading card set that I’ve been talking about at every convention is seeing the light! My very first trading card set featuring artwork that I’ve been producing and posting fairly regularly on my Facebook page. The theme of this set is the women of horror films. 25 cards and 1 special Kickstarter backed card. A portrait is on the front and cool info about that character is on the back. There are a couple pledge levels to choose from. It’s a clear and simple campaign. Sign up to own a deck now before it’s sold out! Only 500 sets will be produced.

Star Wars Sketch Cards

photo04Back in July of this year I had the fantastic opportunity to participate in creating a batch of sketch cards for TOPPS, specifically to be used for an upcoming STAR WARS trading card set; CHROME PERSPECTIVES: JEDI VS SITH. This is the first time I’ve ever contributed sketch card art for anything let alone for Topps and Star Wars. It’s was a big deal for me! I produced 56 cards in about 3 weeks. I put all of these sketch cards here and in the Sketch Cards section of the Gallery. Granted they’re only sketch cards and will be randomly inserted into packs, but it’s a start. I hope to be invited for more work with Topps in the future. As part of payment, I received 6 Artist Return cards that I specifically selected. I plan to have them up on eBay for sale soon. PATREON subscribers and those who have signed up for the NEWSLETTER have priority. Join in if you want dibs on the action. Stay tuned for details!

Podcast Interview: You Can’t Handle the Truth

I was invited to join the film review Podcast You Can’t Handle the Truth to review/discuss Crimson Peak and talk a bit about my art. Not too spoilery. Tangents run amuck though. lol

Have a listen HERE.

I have to stop saying that I did that painting in 2013. It was 2012! Golly, how time flies. I also found out that the film’s ghost concept designs were Guy Davis NOT Mike Mignola. So close. Lastly, it’s fun to point and talk art on an audio podcast. 😛

Thank you Sean and Aaron for having me on!
