Fan Expo Vancouver is almost here!
For the last few years at Fan Expo, I have helped my friend Peter Chiykowski sell merchandise for his amazing webcomic: Rock, Paper, Cynic. This year, I am going to be at his booth (A2 in Artist Alley) selling some of my own merch!
If you follow me on any type of social media, you have probably noticed my religious adherence to posting at least one photo-haiku every single day. I started around Hallowe’en last year and haven’t missed a day yet.
Even though a lot of my haiku use my own photography or stock photos for which I have usage rights, a lot of the geeky ones use images from my favourite films and TV shows.
To sell some of these poems at conventions I wanted original art to accompany them, so I reached out to artists from all over the world (thanks Internet!) and put together what I feel is a pretty wonderful set of 15 haiku (11 postcard prints and 4 posters).
I want some of them to be a surprise at the convention, but I thought I’d post a handful here to whet your appetite.
I’ll also be selling these online (store coming soon). I hope you like them!

Aaron Lenk did the artwork for six of my prints! All of them are this perfect. The others are: Wolverine, Dr. Who, Greedo (below), The Walking Dead, and a Fan Expo Vancouver Exclusive of Leia fighting Kirk!!!

Macroworlder – an online Star Wars, GI Joe, and LEGO photographer – collaborated with me on three prints. The other two are Star Wars related: a Biker Scout and Boba Fett. Check out his stuff on Flickr.

Here is one of the big guns. Rob (Drawn to Fantasy) painted this for me, and whoa did he nail it!

This poster would look great in my messy room so I don’t have to apologise to guests.

I’ll post the others during the convention.
For now I hope you’ll check out all the haiku I did for the Fan Expo Van celebrity guests!
All of them are here on Tumblr.
