I had a nice time at Bowl-A-Con this past weekend. I got to hang out with some of my comic convention friends and make new ones. I also got some good drawing in! You can see for yourself in the time lapse video and photos below.

DollarCon Summer Sale

0

I’m still picking up the pieces after having my vehicle stolen two months ago. I haven’t scheduled any conventions or book-signings for the rest of the summer. Why would I do that if I need the money? I don’t think people realize how expensive¬†it can be for an artist or indie author to appear at a convention. Aside from paying for table fees, we have to make sure we have enough stock on hand to actually sell. Most times I am lucky to make back my table fee let alone what it costs to bring the merchandise to you. I am usually paying more to make an appearance. When you’re an indie, that’s the way it goes, and I accept that. But I also need to be realistic right now as I continue to struggle from the financial blow I¬†took to replace my car.

dollarconI’ve decided to try doing some fun sales online in the meantime over the rest of the summer. My first summer deal is DollarCon! I’ve marked down all 8-1/2 x 11 prints in my portfolio to $1.00!!! This will be for an undetermined limited time due to there being VERY limited quantities of prints. Once they’re gone, they’re gone. I’m not planning on printing any more. All $1 print orders include a FREE copy of the 2016 #IndieBooksBeSeen catalog for you to¬†pick out some reading material to get through the dog days of summer!

My two books published so far in The Sick Rose Vampires series are still available as a discounted bundle.

You may also help with the car replacement fund at gofundme.com or at my webstore.

I am signed up for two conventions in the fall. Monroe Comic Con and Comique Con in October. Please check my Events page for more information!

Stay tuned for more summer steals from my store, Sick Shoppe!

Dark Shadows, Magnum PI, Mad Max and Motor City Comic Con

Your inner child just pooped the pants.

First of all, the DARK SHADOWS series binge is already in full swing on the new Decades TV Network.  For the past
few months the station has been featuring back to back episodes of popular old TV¬†shows. ¬†They have selected a handful of episodes of the gothic soap opera Dark Shadows for us to binge on until Saturday May 16th at 2pm. ¬†The binge started last night at 6pm starting with episode 210, where Barnabas the vampire first came on the scene. ¬†I’m not sure what episode that will get us to come Saturday, but I once read that a man completed the entire series of 1,200+ episodes in two weeks! (Of course, minus commercials.) ¬†The next series Decades will be marathon-ing is The Twilight Zone! (Goodie!) ūüôā

I finally finished up my series of Magnum PI chibis. I may make some tweaks to the final layout of the gang, my ultimate goal being to get the design on a T shirt.

lord-humongous-colorIn addition to the Dark Shadows marathon, two more exciting things are happening this weekend!  Mad Max: Fury Road premieres and the Motor City Comic Con is happening Friday-Sunday in Novi, Michigan!  Although I was unable to attend Comic Con this year as part of their Artist Alley, I do plan on being in attendance for the first time as an attendee.  These are the same folks who hosted the X-trava Con Comic Book & Toy shows where I have done book signings on two occasions.  Looking forward to also seeing the new Mad Max movie, given it seems to lean heavily on The Road Warrior (my favorite of the franchise) and features girl-crush Charlize Theron. Mayhaps there will be more Mad Max fan art in my future?

And while we’re at it, might I add that the new season of The Bachelorette premiers on Monday? I mean how often does one have an opportunity to share a mashup meme based on Mad Max and the last crazy epic season of The Bachelor?

As far as The Sick Rose Vampires goes…the writing for Book II is selected and a couple of the illustrations are done, but beyond that we are definitely running behind schedule. ¬†Stay tuned for updates. ¬†In the meantime, don’t forget to pick up Blood & Alcohol¬†*currently TWO BUCKS OFF on Amazon*¬†for an introduction to¬†the main characters before we get into some vigilante justice! ūüėČ
