Motor City Day 3

WOW this show went by fast! Special thanks to the Tower of Desmond for coming in to help us today! I did one commission today (Batgirl) but didn't get chance to shoot it. So instead we've got some nice pix of the table, new banner stand, and a rabid Apooka fan! Thanks for stopping by Ashley! Thank you to everyone else who came by and thanks for all the wonderful comments, I don't know what else to say, I'm actually kind of speechless.

Ok, next stop is Kids Read Comics in Chelsea, MI June 18 and 19. This is a FREE event and if you've got little ones we strongly urge you to please come on down! Please tell your friends too! We'll be there with workshops and some cool giveaways as well. So hope to see you there!

Motor City Comic Con Day 2!

Thank you to everyone who stopped by today, we greatly appreciate it! We finally got the banner stand up and going today which was a good thing since it place was PACKED and it helped people find us. Got a couple things up for today. We reprinted Apooka The World's Most Adorable Zombie (Book 1) with a sleek new cover, there's also an updated "the end"/last page with new art. Only 2 sketches to share from today's action but they are "keepers." An Apooka in a book which we sketched in our first Motor City Comic Con three years ago! Special thanks to Lee for your Dex Starr request, we're still enjoying the Dex sketch Justin Castaneda did at C2E2. Day 3 starts at 10AM, we're at table 2053 and witness the Tower of Desmond! Hope to see you there!

Well day one of Motor City Comic Con is in the books. Pretty good crowd for a Friday. Thanks to everyone who stopped by! Come visit Joe Foo and myself at Table 2053. Here's some sketches I did at the show, apologies in advance for the poor iphone camera quality.

Happy Mother's Day / Post FREE Comic Book Day / Pre Motor City Comic Con

Apooka's excited. Aren't you?!

Happy Mother's Day to all you motha's out there! Kids, show your mother some respect today and everyday!

Hope everybody got their free comics yesterday! We had a great time at Green Brain Comics yesterday. Thanks Dan and Katie for having us, you certainly know how to throw a great party, I'm still not sure what was in that bottled beverage you gave me. I was fortunate enough to share FCBD table space with artists Jerzy Drozd, Mark Rudolph, Christian Slade and Jesse Rubenfeld. Real nice group of people, heck, even that Jerzy guy! Just kiddin' Jerz, keep up the great work! And thank you to Nancy for the nice plaques, we loved em!

Finally, Motor City Comic Con is next weekend. Yeah I know that came up fast. So if you're in the neigborhood please stop by and say "hi" to myself and Joe Foo. We look forward to it! I'm not sure where exactly we will be, we don't have the floorplan yet. Hopefully we'll get that up in the next post. Hope everybody has a great week and Happy Mother's Day!
