The last 30 days have been the strongest of my art career, without a doubt. AZEventureCon was certainly a shot in the arm for myself and the AyeDee Studio brand!
The Book signing on Saturday of the event was packed! I got to sign all of my Lady Death Necromancer covers, and the book was a legit sell out! Thank you SO much to everyone who picked up a copy! Also have to give a HUGE thanks to Brian & Francisca Pulido and the Coffin Comics crew for the rock star treatment, and giving me an incredible opportunity!
That rub definitely pushed things into high gear, as I have had a nonstop commission list since that show! It has been really awesome finding a crowd so receptive to The Changeling, as well as my artwork!
Books have been selling like crazy, and I decided to offer up something I never considered doing, but very grateful for doing so. I did an homage cover! The Changeling Issue 2 Homage Edition so far has been my biggest and fastest seller of any of my covers to date! I just shipped out a batch a few days ago, and still have about 5 copies left! So if you want to order one, no time like the present!
I’ve been humbled and honored at the growth this past month, and hope to keep the momentum going! I have some rad ideas in the works, and I will be starting on issue 3 soon.
Thank you all for your continued support! You rock!
This weekend at Jesse James Comics in Glendale, I will be exhibiting at AZEventureCon! Kevin Eastman and Brian Pulido will be headlining Saturday’s event. There will also be a who’s who of Arizona’s most awesome and creative talent! I will be there both Saturday and Sunday, and will be debuting two new covers of mine!
First off is The Changeling – Issue 2 Empress Edition! This one features a glossy card stock cover, and is limited to 25 copies. This edition will be selling for $15 each! Book purchase comes with a Certificate of Authenticity. This cover started out as a sketch cover, and from there I scanned it and touched it up digitally until I got the results you see here! I personally love how this one came out. You can preorder a copy right here in the Shop!
The next one I am so, SO happy to announce! I was recently commissioned to do my very first Lady Death cover, and it will be debuting this weekend at AZEventureCon as a Jesse James Comics exclusive! This is the Lady Death – Issue 1 Necromancer Edition. Only 66 copies of this book will be available! This edition will be selling for $20 each, and will only be available through Jesse James Comics! They will be on hand at the show, so make sure to grab your copy and bring it by my table for a signature and a high five!
Hope to see you all there this weekend! I’m so excited for this show! Tickets are $6.00/day, and $10.00 for both days. Kids 12 and under are free!

I’ve been working pretty hard the last couple months or so on my new book! And now, you can preorder the Changeling Issue 1! This book will be printed and ready to sell by the first week of May! I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am for that!
The Changeling follows the story of a woman who woke up one day and realized the night before was filled with murder and mayhem, all caused by her own doing. This demoness comes alive every time she closes her eyes for sleep; a living embodiment of everyone’s nightmare. She struggles with having to feed the beast within her, all the while maintaining her humanity.
The Changeling is written and drawn by myself, including lettering, coloring, formatting, and even printing! This is an ongoing series, and is available now in comic book format. I’ll be selling them personally, and here on the website!
Presenting Human Delight – Newest Artwork by Anthony!
Human Delight is the largest painted piece I’ve done to date! The canvas measures 24″x48″ and was created with Acrylic Paint, Prismacolor Markers and Paint Pens.
Human Delight was inspired by the story of Armin Meiwes, the Rohtemburg Cannibal. Back in March of 2001, Mr. Meiwes placed an ad online “looking for a well-built 18- to 30-year-old to be slaughtered and then consumed.” Surprisingly, someone answered the call. The two had a brief love affair before…well…Mr. Meiwes ate him. He even served him his own body parts before he died!
Meiwes was arrested a year later for attempting the same thing. The police found parts of his first victim in a deep freezer during their investigation.
This piece will also be in my first gallery showing, as part of the Exotic Art Show hosted at the Alwun House! I’ll have more info in the coming days about this show, and where you can see this piece in person!
Welcome to AyeDeeStudio.com! My name’s Anthony Delaney and I am an up and coming comic book creator and artist! I have been drawing since I was a kid, and in the last few years I have really been pushing to get my work out to a much larger audience.
My current project is my creator-owned series The Changeling. This series is written, drawn, colored, lettered and even printed by me! The story is about a girl who struggles between humanity and her newfound penchant for blood after she wakes up one night as a demon with no recollection of her past.
In addition to The Changeling, I also paint, draw and create my own work! I create original concepts, as well as fan art! My methods of composition usually include hand drawn work that is digitally colored in Photoshop, or acrylic paint on canvas. I try to be as versatile as possible, and am always trying to learn new techniques and educate myself as I go! My art style is dark and creepy, but with a hint of cuteness to counterbalance. My storytelling style lends credit to The Twilight Zone, Clive Barker, and visceral, unflinching relentlessness in terms of subject matter. I like telling stories that make you think, and actually cause the viewer to react in one form or another.
I started a Patreon page to try to connect better with my existing fans and supporters, and hopefully pick up more along the way! I also want to give my artist endeavors a bit more of a structure than they currently have. With your help, I can certainly make that happen! Rewards for signing up for my Patreon page can be used here to shop and save from 10%-40% off the prices listed!

It’s been a productive couple of months, and the result is a bunch of new original artwork!
In the month of October, I produced 22 original drawings as part of the #inktober challenge. However, my busy schedule kept me from being able to complete one for all 31 days of the month as the challenge required. Still, I am very happy with the results!
In addition to that challenge, I have new pieces out, including my Ghost – Pray for Babylon piece and my Journey Back From Oz painting! I do have prints of both of these, and will be listing the originals VERY soon!
With that said, I also decided to focus on creating smaller pieces, and have started doing 5″x7″ original paintings and framing them! My first three originals are now available! Here are some of my newest pieces:
I created the Loudest Whispers Collection as a result of being a child from a broken home.
Each piece in this collection reflects the turmoil, hurt and tragedy that follows the children who grow up in such conditions. I have quite a few mental hangups as a result of everything I have gone through growing up, and from trying to unsuccessfully break away from the stigma my past has all caused. It left me a broken soul. I can never adequately convey the depression and hurt or confusion I feel in the written word, or in conversation, and I feel deep shame for ever bringing it up to the ones I love most. If I can’t communicate that way, then I hope I can do so through the use of my art. Hence the name of this collection. Instead of whispering to myself about what I am going through, I can use my artwork to be my voice and tell a story.
I hope you enjoy these pieces. They reflect the extremes of hope, pain, hurt, and never giving up.
I just wanted to share with you my finished Danaerys Targaryen piece! I arrived late to the Game of Thrones party, but fell in love with the show since I started watching it. I have a few more pieces from the show in mind to start working on, but for now, please enjoy this one!
