New York Comic Con Countdown!


I will be there at booth 2271! I'll be sharing that honor with Steve Kanaras (writer of Only in Whispers and publisher of Free Lunch), Norm Katz (good girl cartoonist), Mark Tarrant (creator/writer of Blood Rider) and his dad. Cool this is, I've worked very closely with all of these guys (except Mark's dad).

This'll be fun...feel free to leave a comment on this one and we'll see who's goin' and who's not...

By the way...I'll be bringing....this?

SOOPER POST!

Ow! Welcome to the (almost) end of one of my busiest weeks in a while.

Friday morning through Monday night: Worked Arisia up in Boston. Very fun show, very long hours, suffered a case of the giggles...
Tuesday: Started off with studio hours, worked at the Y, went to the Granby Artists meeting (just barely) and finished that day late with some grocery shopping.
Wednesday: Went in EARLY to the Y, left around 5ish to play some Bball where...THE OUTLAWS BROKE THEIR LOSING STREAK! Home around 8.
Thursday: Did some studio hours, went to the Y and finished off the day with a meeting (a little after 8)
Friday: Went out to a neighboring town to work on a special NYCC project, worked the Y, and finished off the day at the FVAC.

Today! I'm going to do some serious studio catch up hours. I'm supposed to have a meeting today too and I'll finish off the day at a CAG mixer. Tomorrow is the show in Plainville and after that things return to normal. (I hope)

The OUTLAWS SPECIAL will be in effect today (Sat) until the end of the day tomorrow (Sun).

Outlaws lose a squeeker

Sheesh. Another loss. Not a trashing though. We were able to come back to rally in the 2nd half. We had one of our teammates leave to serve our country in the Marines so his replacement started this weekend. We'll see again next week.

At least it wasn't Godzilla vs Tokyo like last time.
