I hope you’ve all had a happy Thanksgiving! I know I’ve had a decent time, I’ve even rewarded myself with a Nintendo Switch Lite!

A fair bit of news that I’m having a holiday sale on my Etsy Store! All my comics and prints are 20% off from now until the end of December!

My Time at Hammond Public Library FanFest

Last Saturday, I was at the Hammond Public Library FanFest.

I didn’t make much in terms of sales, so the show was mostly me touching back with Brian Babendererde, Sean Luke, Bret Juliano, Cloud Orchid Publishing, and meeting new folk like Julio Guerra, Jack Gonzalez, Smuggler’s Coffee, Eric Wolfgang, and Fawn Szymoniak.

I even got some jewelry from Purple Panda Creations.

I don’t have many new cons for the rest of the year but I’m still plugging away at the new cover for Game Store. I’ll be posting the story for all to see very soon so look out for that at various places I post.

11/04/2019 Comic Working.

One more reminder that I’ll be at the Hammond Public Library FanFest this Saturday, November 9th!

I’ve gotten to work on a new cover for the colored Incident at the Game Store, starting it during my livestream last weekend.

I managed to arrange my pages and create a temporary cover to order a print proof from Ka-Blam Digital Printing. I likely won’t have the colored edition up for sale until next year, so It’ll probably debut at my next convention.

I’ll be super busy with my day job so my art activity might be slower anywhere you follow me so updates might be more sporadic.

I’ll probably see you next year if there isn’t much news to say.

10/28/2019 Nearly Complete!

GREAT NEWS EVERYBODY! I’ve completed coloring Incident at the Game Store! I’ll be spending time arranging pages to make a print proof from Ka-Blam Printing, then arranging my images to make a new tutorial article and a tutorial and process video on Youtube.

In anticipation for me completing the coloring Incident at the Game Store, I’m liquidating the black and white comics and selling them for $1 on my Etsy Store! It’s a great way to support me and my projects and have a physical copy of my comic, signed and sketched by me!

Southside Comic Fest, Updates and More

I’ve been lying low online lately as a sort of mini break. I’m mainly writing my next comic, learning to write any comics and figuring out a few of my concerns with my art and my business in making art.

I went to Southside Comic Book Show last Saturday. It was tiny and slow for me and there were mostly toy sellers and seven artists including me: Juan Gomez, Darryl Young, Johnathan Grimm, Donald Mcquay and Edward Sims of Kensai Productions, and Bryant Bell. I sold three comics, but not much else. I mainly sat around and drew Jojo Characters all that day.
