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.

So Sac-Con back on March 1 was amazing. I loved the new location and I’m eager to see the show settle into the new space. New transitions can always be a little rough, but the room to breathe was a very welcomed change. So nice to see all the new faces in the crowd, too!

I’m also already signed up for the next Sac-Con in Fall (Oct. 25), but I’ll be at plenty of other shows before then.

Emerald City Comicon (Seattle) is already around the corner (March 27-29)! Lots to do before then, but I am looking forward to spending some extra time in the city this time around.

In the meantime, I’ve been working on upping my art game in preparation for drawing my comic (Blind Follies: The Flower and Death), as I finalize my character designs and style choices for the project. Rewrites on the later chapters has also started, but will move at its own pace. I already have 4 chapters of final scripts to work with art-wise for now.

Colors for Shane Matthew Murphy’s Birdland Comic have also begun. I’ve been coloring other bits and bobs for some of Shane’s other projects, which I will post when I’m able. Looking forward to wrapping up our new variant cover reward so we can get these Kickstarter packages all shipped out. Not long now!

The new season of 916 Ink Makes Comics has started, in which my creator friend Eben E.B. Burgoon teaches local kids the art of writing for comics. I am excited to again meet with the youngsters and, with my peers, help bring life to their stories through my art. I am always in awe of the work done by 916 Ink in the name of youth literacy. Truly great stuff.

SacAnime Winter 2015

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!

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.
