In less than two weeks The Blot will be heading back to Austin to cover MondoCon 3, and I can’t wait! One of the artists I’m most excited to see is Alex Pardee. After having to cancel his appearance last year, Pardee will be setting up shop at MondoCon 2016 and he’s bringing with him an insane amount of original “Dick Tracing” drawings for sale!!! Getting my hands on one of these Dicky Tracy inspired pieces is at the top of my must get list for MondoCon this year.
If you have been following Alex Pardee on Instagram over the last few months (and if not what’s the matter with you?), you may have seen his latest personal therapy: Dick Tracing. This crazy series of repetitive drawings revolve around the iconic 1940’s comic strip detective Dick Tracy and typically involve some sort of dick joke. But what you may not know is that the very first Dick Tracing that Pardee ever drew was actually at Mondo-Con 1 in 2014, so it seems fitting to bring his Dicks home this year!
Alex loves drawing these Dick Tracing pieces so much he’ll be showcasing and selling over 100 original Dick Tracing drawings!!! Each piece measures 7”x7” and will be sold for just $50. As Pardee said on his blog, “this may be the only time you get to see THIS MANY DICKS all in one place, just “hanging out” together!” There will be no limit on how many Dick Tracings you can buy, so be sure to get to his MondoCon booth as early as you can for the best selection.
