Back to the Old Grind
Texas Was Cold
Just got back from the Lone Star State and as with most of the Wizard shows, we had a great time hanging out with our fellow cartoonists and meeting new peeps. This year, "Artist Alley" was a lot smaller but at least it was held in the same room as the rest of the exhibition. The weather in the Dallas area was unsually cold, I was freezing my balls all 3 days because our table was located directly below two giant vents; displaying a rare common sense, the night of the flight I packed my thick hoodie sweatshirt, which I wore night and day but Joe was wearing shorts and Hawaiian shirts, 'that can't be good!'.
The show ran smoothly, nothing major to report except an unexpected visit from the amazing Bill Sienkiewicz, I've admired Sienkiewicz's work for some time now so I was pretty excited to see him standing by my booth waiting for my arrival, telling me he's my biggest fan and that he bought all my records. He said I was the king of Spain and that he wants to have my babies (well, he didn't put it quite like that but he was extremely gracious and flattering) That was the highlight of my weekend for sure.
Thanks to the great Bill Sienkiewicz and all the kind people who stopped by our lemonade stand, I'll see you all there next year!
The Romantics Are here!
Finally got home after a long drive from Newark Liberty airport on a rainy and miserable night and what do I find at my doorstep?
My Project Romantic anthology comp copies, that's what!!
These books look beautiful! Over 250 full color pages worth of great stories and art. Do yourselves a favor and purchase a copy of this wonderful volume, put together by my good friend and fellow independent publisher: Chris Pitzer. You can order the book directly from the Adhouse Bookstore
