Convention Mention

Hello my darlings.  Man, I have been SO sick these last couple weeks.  Long story short, a cold and poison ivy, complete with fever, itching, and the general inability to breath.  I have not been a very happy person at all.  So I will however still be making some upcoming shows which I am really looking forward to.  I wanted to let you know about where I will be and what I have been doing to ensure that you, my illustrious fans, have a most glorious time.

First off I will be at Comic Con in NY which is October 8th through the 10th.  I will be at table number NYAFC4 which is listed under the wondrous and amazing Liz Ortiz!  It is by her efforts alone that we clinched the table as I was seriously being given the runaround of my life.  Please make sure that you stop by and say hello as both Liz and myself will have new material out for the show!

Now there is an afterparty which will be of epic proportions.  It is being organized by Mark Mazz and I have offered to help as I have in years past.  Here is the info that you need to get there as well as information about its sponsors:


Blaggard's Pub & Restaurant
8 West 38th Street
New York, NY 10018

Date & Time:
Saturday night,
October 9th, 2010 
8pm – Midnight
Cash bar with complimentary finger foods for the first half hour!

Who will be there?
The party is open to the entire independent comics community. This is our 5th year hosting the Indy After Party which has grown to well over 250 attendees. As in previous years the party has been sponsored by multiple independent companies. We've already got 5 sponsors lined up, and are looking for a few more to make this event truly a cross-section of the entire comics community and related fields.

Do you have entertainment?

Yes! This year's major recording artists are Gordon Gano & The Ryans!
Gordon Gano (the Violent Femmes) is joined by Billy and Brendan Ryan (The Bogmen). Their first album, entitled Under The Sun, was released in September 2009 on Yep Roc Records. We fully expect that Gordon will be doing new cuts from their album as well as select numbers from their combined discography.

How can you show your support?
Admission passes will be distributed at the convention by the sponsors.
There will be a cover charge of $5 for all others.

Who should I contact?
The party is being organized by Mark Mazz who can be reached at mazzstudio at gmail.com

Regardless of your level of involvement we welcome you all to this dynamite event at Blaggards Pub (between 5th and 6th Avenue on 38th Street) in Manhattan, NY.

Come on out and celebrate your Independence!

Weeks Away

I know that I have been absent for many weeks.  I apologize for this but I swear it has been for the greater good.  In that time the summer has waxed and waned.  Now my garden wishes I had more help with it.  My Mom broke her ankle and had surgery.  I was by her side at each step to recovery, and I bought her her first pair of converse hightops.  She loves them and calls the her dr.who shoes.  It's really cute.  What that meant is that I spent the growing season making her two gardens, one at home and one vege garden at a community garden plot, were well off while my own suffered in my absence.  Sometimes it is important to make sure that the ones who you love are in the right type of environment to get well.  Perhaps these things are simply excuses, but I was none the less prevented from updating most of my weekly events with any frequency.  Now onto the drama:

So I have been working hard.  I am pleased to announce that Meth is complete.  It will be available at New York Comic Con as well as being available online.  Here is the link: The Meth Collection .  I know it's expensive and I'm sorry, but it is perfect bound, full color, and caps at 80 pages including a super spiffy wrap around cover.

Next, I have a lot of new naughty girls.  I have created six new images to add to my naughty girl collection.  Three of them will be featured in a book put out by guildworks productions that is themed, "girls with guns".  I also created three new ones that feature the Suminagashi inks.  I have really enjoyed making them and will have prints available of them at the convention also.

Now... I only have one page left to complete the story of Rose Against the Moon.  It is exciting and sad all at once.  I have had some ideas about this last page and fear I have psyched myself out over nothing.  I hope to complete a pin-up of Rose as well.  Honestly I think the pin up will be easier than the page.  It will reveal Rose in full the way that I see her.  Makes me nervous because I am afraid of disappointing Nathan... 

So there has been a lot going on and a lot more to come.  I will do better at updating now that I am falling back into a school schedule.  No more long breaks.  I aim to finish off Rose, continue Am I Immortal, and inform you of other wonders that I have yet to announce.  The world is about to become a bit more vast my darlings.  Till next time, enjoy the night.
