Emerald City Comicon 2015

March 23rd, 2015 — 3:11am

Just a heads up, Emerald City Comicon is just around the corner (March 27-29)! Once again, I’ll be exhibiting with my friends the “Imaginary People” at Booth #406.

I’ll have plenty of arts and will be taking toned-paper sketch commissions during the convention.

ECCC 2015, Find me at Booth #406.

Also, just a small announcement…

I’ve created a Tumblr blog for Blind Follies: The Flower and Death (my Hades and Persephone comic). If you are interested in the progress of this project, you can follow it here.

SacAnime Winter 2015

December 29th, 2014 — 4:56am

I certainly hope everyone had a wonderful holiday, whatever you celebrate, or however you choose to celebrate it. This year, all I got was an epic cold, which I am (thankfully) nearing the end of!

Good thing too, because I will be sharing a table at SacAnime with the talented Krysten Reis (“A Curious Journey,” Scattered Comics) this coming weekend (Jan 2-4), table #AA71!

I’d love to wish everyone a happy new year, so please be sure and stop by!

-”Blind Follies: The Flower and Death”
Status: Wrapping up the written script for Chapter 6. Diving into studies to prepare for drawing the comic as I flesh out the character designs and visual development.

Convention Season Aftermath

October 27th, 2014 — 10:36pm

Super Sac-ConThank you to everyone who came out to support me at the recent Super Sac-Con, Oct 18 & 19! Being my last show of the year, it was nice to see some friendly faces, as well as get to know some new fans.

Shane and I were both very excited to debut The Black and White Edition of Birdland #1. He will be wrapping up some last lingering Kickstarter bits and bobs and sending those rewards out soon. Keep checking the Kickstarter page for those updates. You can also follow Shane’s work on the Birdland Comic Facebook page.

I can’t tell you how proud I am of the coloring work I’ve already done, as well as the lettering throughout the book. But my work is only just beginning! Work now starts on coloring all 24 pages for the Birdland in Technicolor edition of the book.

In the meantime, while I enjoy a break from conventions, I’ll also be working on my own comic: Blind Follies: The Flower and Death, my own personal take on the Greek myth of Hades and Persephone. The scripts for books 1 & 2 are both complete, with future scripts all outlined and storyboarding for book 1 finally in production.

I’ll continue to post sketches and updates as the work continues. Being my first full length solo project, it’s bound to take me some time, lots of tea, and plenty of trial and error. I only hope, in the end, I’ll bring out a side of the old stories that’s both romantic and refreshing, as enjoyable as it is personal.

Super-Sac Con

October 13th, 2014 — 3:40pm

Can’t believe how fast this month is blowing by!

This coming weekend Oct. 18 & 19, I will be exhibiting on my home turf at the Super Sac-Con special 2-day event. Come find me in the Small Press room and say hi!

This will probably be my last convention for the year, so I can spend the holidays catching up on important projects and making more art posts. But don’t worry! I’ll still have my online shop and will be returning to the convention circuit come January.

Creative Women Mini-Con (Review)

September 29th, 2014 — 12:57am

Had a blast last Saturday 9/20 at Creative Women Mini-Con at Empire’s Comics Vault, a celebration of Sacramento women in the arts!

It was such a treat being able to hang out all day, chatting with new faces and all the creative ladies exhibiting. I must say, the local response was truly heartwarming when I saw people lined up on the sidewalk waiting for the event to start. Thank you to those of you who were able to come out and show your support for the enthusiasm you give me in what I do. I really can’t tell you what it means to know we indie female artists have such amazing cheerleaders backing us up. <3

One of those cheerleaders is actually the owner of Empire’s, comic creator Ben Schwartz. Not only does Ben do everything he can to give back to the comic community and support local events, he’s also a comic writer himself with many indie titles to his name published through his own ECV Press (Trixie Dynamite and Union St. Choir are two of my favorites). It’s easy to be a fan of both Ben’s work and his amazing, family-friendly shop. I only hope I’ll be able to return for next year’s Creative Women Mini-Con. Very excited to see this event continue to grow.

Behind the scenes at Creative Women Mini-Con. Meet these inspiring and talented local creative women at the shop today until 4pm. Pictured: (from furthest) Melissa Pagluica, Sarah René Straub, Krysten Reis, Jen Monson (photo credit: empirescomics)
