(Off To See the) Wizard (A Whole New) World

Evan Spears and I were quite lucky to be interviewed by the lovely, Liz Ohanesian during Long Beach Comic Expo last weekend. Check out her work at LA Weekly and some clean photos by Dianne Garcia. Here's one now:

Working on some prints for Wizard World Anaheim. Go to there. I'll have shirts, prints, comics, super RARE comics, stickers, probably more other stuff I've forgotten to mention, AND I'll be doing commissions. Come see me at Booth 1912.

Stay up, Internet. Meet me in Anaheim.

LBCEx 2011

So it was that the Long Beach Comic Expo came and went. A smaller con to be sure. Yet not one to be underestimated.

Evan Spears, James Mitchell and myself came, saw, and conquered.

Here's some people who were nice enough to sacrifice their hard-earned green for some comics:

Sporting the pink top is our contest winner, "Baby Dee (Day?)." I don't know either but she was cool enough to let me teach her how to use her phone to follow us via twitter. Consequently, she won our contest!
This dude was obviously on break and walked in with his partner. Neither one of them knew what the hell to make of the convention but it was pretty nice of them to support the con.

I haven't done a commission in such a long time. So fun. A couple of girls told us that they were looking for drawings of the mutant Gambit. They asked if we had seen one to which we denied but added, "We could draw one for you." I totally drew Gambit and they came back to ask for "Rogue on a bicycle."

Follow Evan Spears and I via twitter: @erspears and @eyedraugh respectively.

Thank you, Long Beach. You were too kind. Come to Wizard World Anaheim this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday to get your copies of 140, The Burn Issue, and a con-EXCLUSIVE copy of 140, issue 1 (super-crazy rare)!

Stay awesome.

TN and LBCEx + Soundbite

Been live-painting lately.

This Saturday is the Long Beach Comic Expo. Myself and Evan Spears will rock socks. Be there.

After THAT, go to LA for Soundbite Studios first anniversary show. All cover proceeds benefit different scholarship packages.

This most recent Tuesday in LA I was lucky enough to be invited by one Alex Chiu and two Ann Matsushima Chiu to act as a live-artist painting a painting and selling some comics and shirts.

So I did.

Back to comics: Have you checked out Creator-Owned yet? Chris Smits has a cool project going that seems to be gaining some momentum. He reviews indy/creator-owned comic books. A really generous effort for those trying to make a mark in the INDYstry.

I'll see you soon Long Beach + LA. Shortly after? Wizard World Anaheim.

Wizard World Anaheim 2011

Evenin' ladies and gents. Hope all is well in the land of web. Wizard World Anaheim fast approaches with their start date of April 29 and I'm posting because I was clued in to the pros and cons of printing "con-exclusives" (I really wasn't but I've gone ahead and done it anyway). I've created a WWA limited edition issue #1 of my comic: 140. Essentially, it's the first issue with a limited edition cover. Feast your eyes (or take small portions so there's plenty to go 'round):

Special shout out to Randy for always helping a brother out, just like Shaft. The numbers of these are SUPER limited because I don't want to end up with a ton of site-specific comics at my house. Speaking of numbers, I'll be at Booth 1912 in Artist Alley (which takes up a good chunk of the floor space). Here's a map:

Here's a more better map:
