THANK YOU everyone at Cape-Con who stopped by my table and bought things! I really appreciate it! Here’s a couple of interesting things from the weekend…
1) How many dead armadillos did I see on the highway between St. Louis and Cape Girardeau on the way there and back? The answer is 34. Yes, 34 dead armadillos. Also one boot, and countless miscellaneous corpses I couldn’t identify. Driving games are fun!
2) First time ever, I was asked to be on a panel about comics. Unfortunately, since I always do conventions by myself, I had no one to stay and watch my table while I would do it, so I had to decline. Sometimes being a solo artist at a table is a disadvantage.
I’ve been suffering from mold allergies the last few days and couldn’t focus on anything significant, so I decided to finish this digital mixed media abstract piece I started a couple years ago but failed to finish. As always this and all of my work is available as high quality prints, CONTACT me if you are interested in buying this one. I can get this printed up to 24″x24″!

After many near starts spanning at least two years, I finally started working on the FRIK anthology book! This anthology will include all four volumes and will roughly be 106 pages long and perfect bound. (glued not stapled) Remember that volume four was never printed, so this will be the first time that the ending of this saga will be available to people buying this comic!
Up till this point, I was printing each volume individually with tons of bonus content. A couple of years ago it became obvious that I should just combine them into one book as it would help me in terms of (continue reading…)
As the year draws to a close and I reflect back on everything I’ve done this year, I realize I’m exhausted, lol. Not only have my ART CLASSES more or less taken off where it’s become a semi-part time job (which includes homeschool, after school and Girl Scout badges), but I’ve also cranked out two issues of my newest comic, THE NORMLINGS, reformatted HOLES IN IT to be a vertical comic, and slowly worked on the FRIK Anthology book. (sorry for that one, it’s taking longer than I want.)
This month marks my one year anniversary teaching 8-12 year old kids on how to make their own comics. Besides the KIDS COMIC WORKSHOP that started it all, I also now teach a HOW TO DRAW MONSTERS class, After School classes, Homeschool classes, and I help Girl Scouts earn their “Drawing” and “Comic Artist” badges. I have a lot of plates spinning right now and I hope to get more traction with the coming year! I’ve managed to turn this into a semi-part time job, but I can always do more and WANT to do more!
