Wizard World Recap

Wizard World was a blast!

I was busy nearly the whole time doing commissions and was so happy to reconnect with so many cool people who’ve been going there for years now. Here’s some pieces from the show:

I did get a chance to see some great artwork and am truly honored to have met one of my favorite artists, Glenn Fabry. He’s a comic great in my opinion and was very approachable and pleasant to talk to. Go and check out his amazing paintings if you have not. See examples below:

I ended up having to take work down to get down and am still finish up all the pieces so a special thank you to those who’ve been patient in receiving their finished commissions!

Wizard World 2016

This weekend I will be at Wizard World Philly at the Convention Center for the sixth time in a row. This convention is a bit dear to me since this was the first convention I ever had a table at and have been happy to consistently come back each time.

I’ll be premiering my newest comic Slump which is quite different from other stuff I’ve done. Similar to First Fight, it’s deals with my personal experiences and the story is centered around the passing of my Mom, which occurred last August. I did not intend on doing a comic about the death of a family member, but I found it to be something that I needed to do to get over the grief I felt. This comic definitely does not have any mutated monsters or martial artists in it.

Yup. Heavy stuff…

I’ll be at Booth C20 which is towards the center of the convention floor smack dab in artist alley.

Broadstreet Run 2016 Recap

o-BROAD-STREET-RUN-570

The 2016 Broadstreet Run was an overall awesome experience while being quite difference from past runs that I’ve done. This was my third time doing the event and by far the weather conditions were the worst I’ve dealt with since temperatures was in the low 40s with constant rain. I was soaked within minutes of arriving and utilized a poncho despite how uncool it looks.

I had felt pressure about making a good time, and after seeing how bad the weather was and having to wear a poncho, I simply focused on just having fun and was amazed that my shoes weren’t bothering me despite running in my water drenched barefoot shoes. After a couple miles I gave up trying to dodge  getting soaked further and took full relish in charging through the countless puddles/ potholes which decorate all 10 miles of the Broadstreet Run.

That all being said, I ended up making my best time ever  (1:20:43) which was the best news I’d heard all day. I never thought coming in 5037th place would make me proud but I stand corrected 🙂

As if it couldn’t get any better – I ended up surpassing my goal of raising $500 for the American Cancer Society by being able to donate a total of $614! I am so appreciative of those who have contributed since none of this could have happened without their support. Have faith – I am now working on all of your rewards and will be sending them out as soon as possible!

Broadstreet Run for American Cancer Society

profile pic

This coming May, I will be competing in the Broad Street Run for the third time, and this year I want to do something more by raising money for the American Cancer Society. Many people in my family have been directly affected by cancer, including my mother-in-law, who is a 25-year breast cancer survivor. My own mother recently passed away from a non-cancerous lung disease. She always taught me the importance of helping others, and this is a chance for me to honor her memory by making a difference in the fight against cancer that over 12 million Americans grapple with each year.

Your contribution will directly support the American Cancer Society’s fight to end cancer, but also can get you some cool art! Please see the below incentives I have created for your generous contributions:

$25 donation: You will receive a postcard featuring my artwork personalized with my sincerest thanks for your support.

$50 donation: You will receive a 4″ x 6″ sketch card with your choice of custom art. This prize will also include a sticker and postcard for your donation.

$100 donation: You will receive an 8″ x 10″ custom portrait or artwork of your choosing. A set of postcards and stickers will be included in this prize pack for your most generous gift.

You can donate by going HERE 🙂

Overdue Post

Haven’t posted on here in quite a while so it’s time to catch up a bit. I lost my Mom on August 9th which really rocked my world and made it hard to do artwork at times. I felt like the rug had been pulled from under me and found it hard to motivate myself to do more than create random doodles in my hoard of unfinished sketchbooks. Here’s a couple photo collages I made for her funeral. She was an awesome person, friend, and mother. I miss you Mom.

Wizard World Recap

Wizard World was a lot of fun – I made a whole bunch of art and had a great time making new friends while seeing some old ones. I really enjoy meeting other artists and seeing their work inspires me to grow and develop my own creations. I’ve started working on First Fight 5 but have been lagging and feel excited to getting back to work on it and finishing it by this fall. I’ll be sure to post stuff as I finish it.

WIZARD WORLD PHILADELPHIA IS HERE!

table_banner_2015_6ft

Starting today and until Sunday, May 10th Wizard World Philly will be happening at the Convention Center and I will be there starting tomorrow. WW Philly is one of my favorites because this was the first convention I ever exhibited my work at six years ago! I’m also excited since John Still (writer and artist of Synergy) and I will be having two tables for this con location at F-36 which is a real sweet spot and right next to the main concession area. I’ll be showing some new artwork that I’ve been working on as well as rough drafts of First Fight 5 which I’ve finally started working on again.

Here’s a sneak peek at a really large print that I’ve been working on as well called Aint Easy Being Green which features over a hundred different well known green characters from Pop Culture. In the center you can see Savage Dragon and Malcolm Dragon are going toe to toe with the Hulk 🙂

Broadstreet Run

brn

This Sunday I will be participating in the Broadstreet Run and I’m pretty psyched for it. I did the Broadstreet Run as my first ever race in 2006 which set me on a path to lose weight and take on a healthier lifestyle (with a couple exceptions). It’s been tricky getting in time to run, but I feel confident that I will be able to finish it faster than my run in 2006 which was completed in just under an hour and a half.

NBC10 was nice enough to contact me through Twitter and actually came to our house and interviewed me for the run. They ran the piece already and will be playing it again a couple times before race day. I started training for it in early March and am feeling more than ready for it now. Next week is Wizard World Philly so May is certainly going to be a busy month for me 🙂

Convention Masters Recap

Last week I went to the Convention Masters Expo in NJ and left the event with some mixed feelings. This was the first time ever trying to exhibit my work at an event like this and felt like my work would be a no brainer for a martial arts comic convention. I met some very nice folks and ended up doing some commissions on Saturday but ended up not going there on Sunday.

Here are some photos of the location as well as some of the artwork I created while I was there on Saturday.
