I’ll be at Long Beach Comic Con September 27 and 28th of September at the Long Beach Convention Center. Come check me out at Booth #1507. I’ll have more copies of Heavenly Kibble Guardian Corgi #1, and some new pony and corgi art for sale. Becky Tinker, the writer of Everstar, will be there with me at various points over the weekend, so be sure to come say hi to us!
A few weeks ago, I did an interview with the lovely folks at the Comic Relief Podcast. Tawmis is a super fun individual to chat with, and we had a real blast. We discussed Heavenly Kibble Guardian Corgi, my new gig at Thrillbent (Everstar hadn’t been announced at the time this interview was recorded), and some of my older comics. The video is embedded below if you’d like to check it out! The link begins at my portion of the podcast, but make sure to listen to the rest of the awesome comics news and reviews if you’ve got the time!
For those of you who don’t know, I’ve been working with Thrillbent Comics on a new title called Everstar that debuts this Friday, August 8th! Corrina Lawson over at GeekMom got a sneak peek at the first two chapters of Everstar! She interviewed Becky (the writer) and I last week. See what she has to say about the title I’ve been drawing since May.
“What happens when a rambunctious eleven-year-old girl becomes the captain of her very own spaceship?
Everstar, a new webseries created by Rebecca Tinker, written by Tinker and drawn by Joie Brown, releases today at Thrillbent.com and through Thrillbent’s free app. Thrillbent offered me an advance look at the first two installments and, if the rest is anything like the first two, this creative team has hit the mark perfectly…”
I’m really excited to announce that I did the front cover for Worth Taking’s new album “Art Imitates Art” that’s available on 8/12!! Worth Taking is described as “Nerds in a pop-punk band.” Check ‘em out and pre-order here!
The piece is inspired by the album’s name “Art Imitates Art.” I ended up choosing two very well known movements from art history, and combined them as if one were imitating the other. Can you guess which two I chose?
Wow, it’s been two months since Wonder Con already! I’ve definitely fallen behind on my blogging, but my life went insane the last day of the convention and has been even since. Wonder Con was absolutely wonderful. It’s the biggest convention I’ve ever worked, and the amount of friendliness and support my boothmate Ria Art and I received was astonishing!
In additional exciting news, Heavenly Kibble Guardian Corgi completely sold out at the show! I had to order a second printing of comics, and then promptly sold out of them again through my online store. I’ve plenty more in stock now, and am selling them both through my online store, and at Indyplanet as well– additionally, Indyplanet also has an option for a digital version for $0.99. If you’d like to buy them from a physical store, House of Secrets on 1930 W Olive Avenue in Burbank is now stocking it, too! HoS is a great comic store, if you’ve not checked it out yet. Super friendly Amy and Eric always make you feel welcome, and they have quite a selection.
That said, I can finally get to the part where I explain why my life has been so crazy since the convention. Not only did I get a lot of opportunity to travel, but I also got an offer to join Thrillbent Comics as an artist on one of their upcoming new titles! I’m extremely excited about the title I’m working on, and the Thrillbent crowd are all pretty cool people. They’ve got lots of great books already, and have a cool digital app that allows you to read your comics on the go. Check them out if you haven’t yet. The title I’m on will be releasing in late Summer of this year– keep your eyes peeled for it!
