Stumptown, I shall miss you

Well, Stumptown wrapped up on Sunday night and it couldn't have gone any better (well, maybe a little better, since I didn't find a winning lotto ticket while flying a jet pack or anything). I had a complete blast, met a ton of awesome people who were excited about my work, sold out all of my comics, and had a great turnout of friends and family. Thank you all who were able to attend and stop by my table.

Here is a link to some photos from the event, with Ash acting as a puppeteer forcing me to draw draw draw.

Also, I just got the final back on the Roller Derby poster I did for the Rose City Rollers! I did the illustration and the Art Director (Nami, aka "Draggin") did the text layout. I think it looks pretty dang good, the font reminds me of boogie nights with a splash of vidal sassoon.

Stumptown here I COME!

Well, we're down to the final week! My books came yesterday and they look pretty good (wish I could afford to print a grayscale comic in COLOR, then maybe it'd look more like my drawings). They really look nice though, I feel a small spark of pride when I look at them.

My lil' sis took some photos from the gallery opening, thanks to all of you that came! I think the printer I chose will be selling my comic through their online store, so those of you who'd like to buy a comic (no pressure) but can't make it to Stumptown, keep you're eyes peeled for a link to their store soon.


This is me pointing to something at the show. Probably Craig Thompson...did I mention that he had some pieces there? Oh, I did? How silly of me.

And here I am with my lovely wife and greatest critic/moral supporter/editor/self esteem booster/marketing forcer on-er in front of some of my pieces, doing who knows what.

Roller Doodle

Here's a sketch of a sexy gal on skates. I've been doodling roller derby ladies in my spare time lately since my friend Heather put me in contact with the Rose City Rollers art director in hopes of doing a poster for one of their bouts. So, I guess I just have to whittle the hours away drawing sexy girls being tough and graceful, it's hard to be me. In other news, the opening of the Stumptown Art Show went EXTREMELY well and I got to meet a lot of great people (rubbin' elbows and taking names). Plus, tons of my friends and family showed up, so I felt warm and fuzzy on the inside the entire time.
