Hi everybody! As some of you may know, the pre-order special for my comic, LIGHT RIOT: DEPARTURE, is now over. Thanks to everyone who pre-ordered, and expect to receive your copy (plus thumbnail art!) in the mail shortly! This means that LIGHT RIOT: DEPARTURE, is now officially on sale! Yes!
If you’re interested in sampling the first three pages and/or purchasing it, please go here. Remember, you can buy this comic any time by clicking on the “store” tab at the top of this page :)
In, other news, MICE (Massachusetts Independent Comics Expo) was last week, and it went great! Special shout-outs to my table mates Adrienne Nunez, Donna Almendrala, and Melanie Gilman! Thanks to everyone who showed up to the table!
This weekend, beginning tomorrow, I’ll be tabling at ICAF (The international Comic Arts Forum), which is being hosted right here in White River Junction, VT! What an honor! As you can see from the schedule, the panels begin today, but the market place opens up tomorrow. I’ll be selling my wares with the talented Jesse Durona, so be sure to stop by if you’re at the conference!
Thanks again to everyone who pre-ordered my comic and for everyone in my life who has been supportive in my artistic efforts! The amount of support and appreciation I’ve been receiving has been truly astonishing!
Hey everybody, I hope everyone enjoyed their summer and is enjoying the transition into autumn! I figure I’d take some time in this post to say hi and update everyone on what’s been going on in my life. This summer has been hectic! I’ve been making still images, working on comics to submit to anthologies, and trying to develop my growing style as far as I can. Additionally I’ve been gearing up for my last year in attendance at the Center for Cartoon Studies, where I’m an MFA candidate.
THIS SATURDAY (Sept. 24th) I’ll be exhibiting at the Massachusetts Independent Comics Expo (MICE) in Cambridge, and I’m very excited! I’ll be tabling with friends, and fellow CCS students, Donna Almendrala, Melanie Gillman, and Adrienne Nunez , so stop by our table and say hi! ALSO, the organizers of MICE have kindly written a blog-post to spotlight the debut of my comic, LIGHT RIOT: DEPARTURE. Awesome! In addition to my new comic, my work will also be appearing in TWO anthologies premiering at the show: Hot Tea, Cold Water #3 and the latest from the Trees and Hills collective, entitled Woods. Check them out!
At this point I’d like to sincerely express my thanks to everyone who’s been pre-ordering LIGHT RIOT: DEPARTURE, you all are great! To everyone else, though I’ll be selling LIGHT RIOT: DEPARTURE in person at MICE, it doesn’t go officially on sale online until Sept. 28th. Those following my blog might know that I’ve been having a special pre-order special in which early purchasers get free thumbnail art that I used in creating the comic. As it turns out, when it goes officially on sale online I’ll also have to raise the price by about a dollar, so if you want the cheaper price (and ORIGINAL THUMBNAIL ART) now is the time. Thanks!
In other news, school started three weeks ago with a bang, and I’ve hardly had time to think! This year I’m working intensely on my final thesis project in addition to serving as a teachers’ assistant to Steve Bissette and Kriota Wilberg‘s Drawing Studio class. It’s been great so far working with CCS’s first year students and getting some actual teaching experience. Both Steve and Kriota have been extremely kind and supportive in showing me the ropes and generally taking me under their collective wings. I have a feeling many great pieces of art will come out of this experience :)
Okay, I guess that about wraps it up; I’ve got to go get ready for the coming weekend. Thanks for reading, and I hope your Autumn season is pleasant and beautiful. See you at MICE!
