I will also be submitting a copy of Blood & Alcohol as a door prize.  Raffle ticket included with admission!  I would be happy to sign a copy of my book for you and a friend!  It makes a great personalized gift! 🙂  What better place to hang out on a crazy shopping weekend.  Stay away from the malls.

RSVP on facebook

This is a smaller scale show by the same people who bring you Motor City Comic Con every year! I’m doing a book signing for my fans here who are local and don’t want to pay the big money to get into the big show in May. Please come visit me and pick up my book, or bring yours and get it signed!

My month of “DrawMo” has turned into “DrawLess”.  I’ve been busy promoting and getting things ready for my book signing and haven’t been drawing as much.  The one drawing I did do this week I am quite proud of.  I told one of the third grade students in the class I was volunteering for that I would draw my favorite, The Incredible Hulk.  Not too bad for my first superhero.

Okay, okay…I’ve also been playing A LOT of Majora’s Mask this weekend.  Because I am obsessed, I will show you again the Skull Kid I did earlier this month.  First, you can see what it looked like before I colored it in.




All done!

See you next weekend!

DrawMo Week One


Inktober has come to a close.  NaNoWriMo week one is over without me.  I’ve been involved in a self-imposed “DrawMo” instead.  I haven’t made my goal of doing a drawing per day as I had intended, but I have done more drawing in a week since before my book wrapped.  I haven’t gotten into doing any sketches for my next book yet.  I have been using the time to practice using Christopher Hart’s book, Manga Mania: Occult and Horror and daily drawing assignments from @Sketch_Dailies on twitter.  I would like to share with you my DrawMo drawings from this past week.

I used a combination of markers and crayons, especially for the last one.  I still can’t find my nice Prismacolor colored-pencils, or fancy expensive markers from college.  As new art supplies are not in my budget right now, I’ve been working with what I have.  I love to color and the crayons offer more color choices than the small set of markers I own and are good for blending.

Don’t forget three weeks from tomorrow is My Book Signing.  I’m debating whether or not to have prints of some of my drawings for sale in addition to my book.  I haven’t been too pleased with the quality of prints I’ve done in the past, so if you have any recommendations of a company to go through please let me know!
