Absence Makes the Blog Grow Flounder…

It has been quite a while now since my last post… and even longer than that since my postings were actually regular. Lots of reasons for that, some more interesting than others. Long story short, I haven’t had the time to blog as much as I would have liked, but it doesn’t mean I’ve stopped creating. While the comic strips have been on hiatus, I’ve still been stockpiling ideas and also drawing lots of other things. Shortly I hope to begin catching up on a lot of old art from the last several months so you can see what I’ve been up to during my semi-absence. I may also have some bits of interesting news to share as well… and when I’m ready to be more regular again, the comics will come back. I still have wacky Fringe Kisses ideas, want to revisit the From Where I Sit folks, and definitely need to get back to the story of Buzz and the gang in ‘Sects!

Thanks to those who have been sticking with me… and especially those of you who have checked-in to see what was up with the lack of updates! I hope to be back in the regular posting game soon… Stay tuned!

04/23/2017 Raleigh Comic Book Show, Epilogue!

Was so tired at the end of the day Sunday that I went to bed early, and slept late Monday… so I didn’t get to write about my experiences at this weekend’s Raleigh Comic Book Show until late tonight. It was good to see all of my old friends, make some more new ones, and (as I would find out by the end of the show) pose for a super portrait!

There were four invited guest to this show, counting myself. I was seated next to Buddy Prince, and though I didn’t get to talk with him much this show, it’s always good to see him there. Seated to my right was Glen Richardson. It was a pleasure to meet and chat with Glen throughout the show. Turns out we have some similar world views and while our styles are somewhat different, the subjects and references within his work mirror some of my own.

Glen had a bunch of nice prints for sale at the show as well as copies of his self-published comic Sgt Sasquatch: The Bigfoot of Liberty. Make sure you check out the link to Glen’s Web site! We each discussed our own projects and the creative process. He also brought his daughter Ziley with him to the show, who pleasantly surprised me at the end by having drawn a picture of me, for me, while Glen and I had been talking. They also bought a Two-Face sketch card from me, so I know that one is going to a good home!

Super-Me by Ziley:

On the other side of Buddy was Dan Johnson. Unfortunately Dan got there a little after the show had started, and I kept busy so I didn’t get a chance to introduce myself to him before the show had ended. I hope to get a chance to meet him in the future.

I had a lot of new personal sketch cards for sale that I had drawn since my last show appearance. I also brought lots of glossy prints as usual, and some freebies to give away to promote the blog and my ‘Sects comic strip. Even though ‘Sects has been on a hiatus of late, I still hope I prompted some new fans to take a look so they’ll be here and ready for when all the guys and gals make a comeback soon!

One fan, Bradley, commissioned a sketch card of the Olympian, from the Global Guardians, during the show. I had to borrow his smartphone for a while for reference because I had to admit I had only a passing familiarity with the character though I did seem to remember something about the Global Guardians. Bradley was patient with my blank brain, and I think I was able to make a good sketch card for him when all was said and done. He is also supposed to share a scan of the card at some point. When he does I’ll make another blog post about that and share the artwork for everyone else to see.

I was also able to connect with Shelton Drum of Heroes Aren’t Hard to Find and pick up a small box of blank sketch covers comic books. At some point I’ll take inventory of all that I have and make a post so that if anyone wants to request a commission on a blank comic you’ll know what I have available.

All told… I always enjoy appearing at this show, and seeing old friends. Some unique experiences for me this time with the show commission, being an unwitting model for a super-portrait, and making a new creative friend.

Thanks go to Lyn Anderson for the invite, and to all the fans who came out today to support comics, this show, and all of us invited guests! Welcome to all the new followers of my blog or Facebook that come from our meeting at this show too!

Raleigh Comic Book Show, Sunday 04/23/2017

Just found out early last week that I’m going to be a guest at the upcoming Raleigh Comic Book Show, next Sunday! As always, I am looking forward to seeing show runner Lyn Anderson and all the great dealers and convention regulars who attend these shows. Other planned guests at this show are Buddy Prince, who is a solid artist, good guy, and another Raleigh show regular… and Dan Johnson, whom I have not yet met but am looking forward to seeing for the first time!

I will again have original art and sketch cards for sale, including a bunch of new sketch cards from last Inktober that I drew after my last convention appearance. I’ll also have lots of glossy prints of a bunch of illustrations that I’ve drawn over the last few years. Time permitting, I might even be able to do some commission sketch cards or head/bust sketches during the show too. I’m getting ready for the show this week, so I could even surprise myself with new things I don’t yet know I’ll be bringing!

I hope to see lots of Facebook and blog followers at the show… and I promise to try and warp your brain with my nonsense while you’re there. 🙂 If you’re anywhere near Raleigh, NC next week you really ought to stop by the show… you will not be disappointed! For those who can’t attend, I will be blogging about the experience sometime next Sunday night as I normally do after these shows.

*I do support actual women far more than I usually manage to support my female characters. This seemed like as good of a way as any to recognize both of those things on International Women’s Day.

*Sometimes real life gives you better stuff than fiction… The world may never know just what Michael Jordan meant that day of the Duke vs UNC game… but we will all remember where we were the day it happened. Never forget! 🙂

*Hopefully everyone can figure out what Buzz is saying…

*Continuing an Ash Wednesday tradition started last year by Buzz… he lends out all his stuff for Lent so all the characters that normally don’t have costumes or accessories get to have something to carry around for the next month or so! Even though he kind of gets it wrong, he also kind of gets it accidentally right as he is giving up some stuff for Lent… he just wants it back later! 🙂

*In all fairness to Buzz, I must admit… this is a holiday time of year that escapes me a little as well… excessive binging in advance of excessive fasting during Lent, when moderation the whole time would make more sense, no?
