I feel like I’ve gone through a comics ‘right of passage’. I exhibited at the legendary S.P.A.C.E. One of the longest running indie comic conventions in the states. It was one of the most welcoming shows I’ve ever attended and featured a very diverse collection of comics creators. I was tabling with my buddy Scott Kroll. Here’s a our table:
We had a nice time meeting other folks and we even did a couple jam pieces. Here is a Prophet that I pencilled and Scott inked:
One of the big bonus’s of the trip was seeing the Bill Watterson “Exploring Calvin & Hobbes” art exhibit at the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library. It was … almost like a religious experience. I grew up on Calvin & Hobbes and still aspire to create work at the level of Mr. Watterson’s. Here are some shots:
It was amazing. If you are even REMOTELY close to Columbus, OH, you NEED to go to this show.
On top of all that, we saw Nate Powell sing heavy metal at the after-party karaoke.
C2E2 THIS WEEKEND!
Along with our normal stock of awesome comics, we’ll have the new Speculative Relationships postcards and posters:
And I’ll have 1 new print, which is the teaser image for Victus #3, along with the 2 previous Victus prints:
I’ll try to add these to the online store after the show. But C2E2 will be the first place you can get your hands on this new print! Hope to see a lot of you there! Mention the blog and get a special treat!
Well… I’ve been plugging away on Victus #3, inks on Upgrade Soul, and my two scifi romance short comics for Speculative Relationships. And of course some Prophet fan art. Here are some peeks:
Get to C2E2 this weekend and say hi!
Back again for a quick post.
Here are a few more looks at my bookshelf (or ‘shelfie’ I guess it’s called?)
Some of my proudest acquisitions on these shelves would have to be 2 of Katsuhiro Otomo’s short story collections (SOS and Memories), Visions of Arzach, Moebius’ 40 Days Dans Le Desert, In the Studio, the Hellshock collection, Stranger in a Strange Land… ugh.. honestly I love all this stuff!
What’s on YOUR shelf?
So it’s official, I’ve announced the anthology I’ve been putting together with Scott Kroll. It’s is a science fiction romance comics anthology called Speculative Relationships (get it?). We are really excited about it! Here is the cover image:
by the amazing Mike Manomivibul.
It will feature new stories by:
and of course ME.
We are planning to gain funds for printing via Kickstarter! So please keep up with the project on tumblr and twitter:
I’m sure I’ll bug ya’ll about it more as the Kickstarter approaches!
Work work work all the time
So here is what I’ve been up to…
You know I can’t get enough Prophet/Yilala. What I wouldn’t give to just get ONE PAGE in that Prophet: Strikefile book.
Work has been excessively sucky lately. So I put my feet up and watched the Thundercats intro. It helped. A little.
The Raid 2 is one of the best things ever on the planet. Do anything you can to go see it NOW. I’ve been twice so far and count on at least one viewing in the theatre.
Thanks for playing along at home! Is anyone keeping score?
