So, it appears like it's been almost a full year since I last updated my journal. Lots of stuff has been going on here. I helped my mom move and, in doing so, moved back up with her to help her out for awhile. I started and ended another semester of school, and just recently had a visit to the ER. Just a few days ago I even had my comic work compromised after an incompetent server at Denny's poured coffee all over my pages in an attempt to refill my mug.
But, here we are. Hours before the new Doctor Who premieres on BBC America.
I have just been announced as a guest for Saboten Con 2014Buy your tickets here www.sabotencon.com/attending/b…
If you're in the area, or plan on attending the con, come out and support this convention and swing by and see me! Saboten Con is Arizona's premiere Japanese Culture convention!
I am truly very honored to be back at Saboten Con. Thank you again to all involved for having me return!
I am releasing a special, limited edition 200 copy print run of Zombie B.C. #2, exclusive to Saboten Con. ONCE THOSE 200 COPIES ARE SOLD OUT, THERE WILL BE NO REPRINTS!
The book is an A.R.C. (Advanced Readers Copy) for Zombie B.C. #2, presented in it's raw, original pencils without inks.
Cover art will be unveiled shortly (cover art by Ryan McMurry).
I will have the latest printing of Zombie B.C. #1 on hand to sell, as well. I will also have limited commission spots open as I have a busy schedule being part of discussion panels.
I HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE!!
Saboten Con is a special kind of convention for me. It was at the very first Saboten Con when I started trying out Art Tables (I shared table space with ArtLair
at www.artlair.com). It was also the last time I saw one of my close friends, Greg, before he more-or-less stopped coming out to our shows. I have missed many other cons in recent years due to personal stuff happening, but I have yet to miss a Saboten Con and I have been present as an artist at every one so far!
Saboten Con 2012 marked my departure from being a "print artist", where I released my first comic book, "Zombie B.C.". I wrote and drew the whole thing as well as being my own editor. My friend of 5 years, and local model, Aurora O'Brien had known about the project back in it's early stages and wanted to contribute artwork for it in her support for my project. She was unable to complete the art on her own due to emergencies due to weather problems, so she had her mentor and legendary artist Steve Rude "The Dude" (see: Nexus comic book, DC Comics "Before Watchmen: Dollar Bill #1") finish up the image. That image became the cover to the first issue of Zombie B.C. #1, which I then colored myself.
I wasn't sure about premiering a horror comic at an anime/Japanese con, especially when there aren't any real Japanese influences in the story or art. But I was pleasantly surprised when I sold out my first printings.
Now I am honored to be brought back out to Saboten Con. I love to support these guys and I want to release something new and special to this convention.
Hope to see you guys there!!
