NEW YORK CITY COMICON 2009




CABIN FEVER, CABIN SHMEEVER!
It's that time of the year, Woohoo! The convention season has begun and after the brutal winter which has kept us indoors for weeks, here in the North-East, it's good to finally have a great excuse to leave the house and battle the elements.

This year I am honored to have my good friend and legendary character designer/illustrator Shane Glines of CartoonRetro.com fame, as my guest, joining Yours B. Truly in the Brandstudio Press booth. Shane will be debuting his brand spanking new art book at the show so if you were in need of a good reason to hop on the train and brave the cold and the big city crowds, you won't find a better one. Shane rarely does conventions so don't miss this chance to meet a true trailblazer of the animation industry. There will be plenty of copies of his new book on hand, which he will be signing, so stop by and pick one up, stay a while and talk shop.

BOOTH # 2342, BE THERE OR BE SQUARE
As always, all of you are invited, although only a few of you can come, so if you live in the Four-State area: New York, New Jersey, Connecticut & North Pennsylvania, come to the Jacob Javits Convention Center on 34th Street and 11th Avenue next weekend: Friday February 6, through Sunday, February 8th. Free sketches from yours truly to all human beings who identify themselves as friends of this blog. All enemies, however —as it's customary— will be slaughtered on sight and in full view of their loved ones.

PRODUCTION UPDATE
For those interested: The latest Eye Candy installment is being delayed but not derailed. We have met some snags )what else is news?) but we're moving forward, I'll have more definite info on this volume as it becomes available.

Same goes for the Carlos Meglia Sketchbook, we want to get this right so at this point we don't have a final release date. I will keep you posted.

Great to see Shane's book is ready! I can't wait to see it. I'll be your neighbor at 2341, Alberto - see you there!

Excellent! Just one small favor: please don't be like my real next door neighbor, don't let your dog poop on my lawn.

See you there!

Eres un "As" Alberto. ¿Cuando sacas tiempo para hacer todo lo que haces?
Confiesalo, seguro que en el sotano de tu casa tienes encerrado a un monton de gente trabajando para tí. Jajajajajajaja

P.D: Sigue callaito, eso es señal que estas currando de lo lindo.
Un Abrazo
