Here are my confirmed show appearances for the rest of the year. See you at all of them! Will update as things develop.
3 RIVERS COMIC CON
June 3-4 2023
A decade ago today I was one of the on-camera talent in a commercial shoot for Southern Ohio Medical Center in Portsmouth, Ohio. I portrayed a husband driving his wife home from the hospital after her successful cancer treatment. They returned to their house where she enjoyed a celebratory homecoming.
I enjoyed the experience, but I regret that I have never seen the finished commercial, which never ran in my viewing area. I’ve searched for it online on YouTube and elsewhere with no success. However, I do have these few photos of the session .
Not to brag, but the badge below signifies that Craig Boldman is a TOP PERFORMER for event caricatures for the third consecutive month! Click it to be transported to my GigSalad page.
What is GigSalad? It’s a resource for event planners and for individuals who are interested in hiring talent for their parties, wedding receptions, corporate events, etc. I don’t mention my live caricature work often enough, but I can be available for such appearances.
I customarily draw my popular super- caricatures at comic conventions, but I also do these fun side hustles, and enjoy interacting with people outside my customary circles.
Another great booking agency for me is The-Nose, which is where I originally took the plunge into live event caricatures. Tell Tad I said hi!
So, keep me in mind for your upcoming event. Caricatures are always very popular keepsakes and make occasions even more memorable.
Alternatively, I do commissions from my home studio, and you can find more information about that on my COMMISSIONS page.
Below are a few photos of my work at a recent event.

There has been SO MUCH happening during the second half of 2019 that I’ve kept my focus on the drawing board, rather than here. But, it’s time to get back on-line, and over the coming weeks I’ll write about some of the projects and events that have kept me away from the blog.
Today, let me just mention that CuppaComics is the imprint I’ll be using for a variety of projects that I’ll be managing from the home office. Before long I’ll spin Cuppa off onto its own website, but for now this will work fine. With all that’s going on I don’t want to overwhelm myself, so, baby steps.
Here are my CONFIRMED appearances for 2019. More to come.
E-MAIL ME to commission a caricature or commission for pick up at an upcoming event – or – to inquire about me appearing at YOUR event!
FANTASTICON TOLEDO OH
GEM CITY COMIC CON DAYTON OH
Here’s a piece of promotional art for next week’s Pikeville (KY) Comic-Con! Should be a great occasion. I’ll be seated next to my friend and Cap’n Catnip collaborator, Tim Fuller. Also in the house will be Gary Kwapisz (artist of many issues of Savage Sword of Conan, among many other credits), whom I haven’t seen in a few years since a Lexington convention.
Please come if you can! I’ll be selling books, doing my Super-Caricatures and meeting, greeting and chatting. You can’t avoid me; I’ll be seated opposite the TARDIS!
Here’s a drawing I did last weekend at the terrific Lake Effect Comic Con. I’m often asked if I can do caricatures from photos, and the answer is yes, I do that all the time. If you’d like a drawing of yourself or your kids as a superhero or other fantasy character, drop me a line via e-mail . Also check the Caricatures & Commissions page for more information!
Check it out — I’ll be signing programs and copies of my Conduktor drawings after the Cincinnati Pops Lollipops “Superheroes” concert on June 10. The concert starts at 10:30 am, click the link for tickets!
The Cincinnati Pops Superhero characters are the co-creation of Cincinnati Pops Orchestra conductor John Morris Russell and myself. The occasion was the 2013 Cincinnati Pops “Superheroes!” concert, a program of superhero themes from movies and television (see the track listing on the CD cover after the jump!) and the subsequent CD recording of that concert.
If you’re getting older, or know anyone who is getting older, you need to grab this new funny greeting card assortment, art and writing by me, now available at your local Half Price Books! Square-format cards, 16 per box, 4 each of 4 designs.
