Hello out there!

Well SPX 2013 has come and gone.  I’m very glad to have finally participated in this show, after years of hearing about it.

Everyone was extremely kind in Bathesda, MD.  Thanks to everyone who came by the table to say hi and bought some comics!

INTERVIEW

So… I had the chance to do a nice interview with the folks over at IndieReader.com.  We talked a bit about my process, why I make comics, stuff I’m reading, etc.  Take a gander:

Firing On All Cylinders

Thanks to Steve Urena for the fantastic interview questions!

SOCIAL MEDIA

So hey.  I finally broke down and did it.  I got a Twitter.  And a Tumblr.  If you are someone who follows those things, please follow me.  Be gentle though… I’m new at this.

SPX 2013!

Hey ya’ll!

Quick post here to let everyone know I’ll be at Small Press eXpo this weekend in Bathseda, Maryland!  I’m very excited, as I’ve heard great things about this show ever since I started exhibiting at cons.  It also helps that it’ll be a room full of amazing artists whose work I love and respect.  It’s especially good to see some of the Panel Savants there:

Neil Brideau

Kenan Rubenstein

Josh Shalek

Along with my good pals:

Marnie Galloway

Beth Hetland!

Here is a map of where to find us this weekend:

BACK ISSUES

New episode of Back Issues is up!  Justin and I put a bullet in the head of Spider-Man: Kraven’s Last Hunt.  Well worth a listen, as it’s the first book we didn’t gush over:

Still Alive

Geez, where did August go?

Sorry for the lack up updates.  It’s been a busy month of drawing, work, drawing, concerts, drawing, friends, and drawing.  Couple neat things…

9 QUESTIONS WITH MAX MILLER

The extremely talented Max Miller was kind enough to ask me 9 questions on his blog, which I did my best to answer:

9Q’s9A’s

Thanks Max!

Wizard World Chicago has come and gone.  Though I think the show itself is not fantastic, I did get a chance to hang with pals Daniel Warren Johnson (Space-Mullet) and Mike Mano (Princess Bride illustrator).  It was good times.  And I had the fortune of meeting a new artist whose work impressed me a lot:

J.M. Dragunas

We had a good chat about Durer, engravings, and medieval art in general.  Check his stuff out!

Other than that, I’ve been working on Victus #2 and enjoying the summer.  Here is my life in pictures:
