Hey cats and dogs,
Lots of stuff going on with me. 2011 is proving to be as exciting and substantial a year as I always knew it could be. I hope you’ve been keeping up with my posts over at the Comix Cube, because when I’m not here I am there.
I’ve also been making a lot of pictures and comics, here are a couple of those things
I’ve written about Ashley Brooke Toussant here on this blog before, and I’m still a big fan. She’s been working hard on a new album that’s guaranteed to be outstanding. Anyway, I was very touched when Ashley asked me to draw up a new poster for her, which you can see above. Since I’m such a big fan of hers, I didn’t want to disappoint, and I hope I did the music justice.
Speaking of her new album, she’s hard at work doing all the things that go into making one, and you can give her a hand by contributing to her IndieGoGo fundraiser. One of the perks of that there campaign is, if you donate $50 or more, you can get a big print of my poster above! She’ll also be selling it at her shows, so there’s no excuse not to support this great artist. Her website is here, in case you wanted to see when she’s playing. You can also do the facebook thing.
I submitted the above comic to appear in the newest edition of the newsprint collection Magic Bullet, put together by the DC Conspiracy and features a lot of great stuff, including a page by Jim Rugg! You can pick it up for free at the best comic shops near you.
Riding the large newsprint collection wave, I made another comic for another thing. This one did not get in, so I guess I can show it to you here. I was trying to make more abstract, cartoony figures and I think it came out pretty well.
I also trucked on down to Columbus for SPACE, which you remember I blabbed about going to last year. This year I had a table waiting there for me and overall I had a really swell time. I roomed with the real-life siblings of Siblings Inc., Kerry and Dan who are responsible for Cupcakes and Comics (we also shared a room with Joe Medwid). Lots of laffs were had all over the Ramada. I helped to put sprinkles on the cupcakes, which is my proudest moment of the year so far. I wrote a whole bunch more about this show over at the Comix Cube.
Anyway, I put together a new mini for the show, which you can see a sample page from below. The book is called “Peace Signs” and I’ll be selling it at shows throughout the year.
One of the exciting things to come out of my SPACE experience (and there were so many) was I get mentioned in an article on The Beat!. Wow.
Here’s a crazy video those Tallarico kids made about the show.
UNTIL NEXT TIME
I’ve got some more exciting stuff to talk about and show you, but I will need to wait a little longer. Hope you guys haven’t forgotten about PUPPYTEETH 2, because I’ve got a lot of exciting stuff in that regard for the near future.
Have a good April, y’all!
