Completed the carboniferous book!

Posted by on Jul 24, 2015 in New art work | No Comments

After one year of toil and pain, I have finally FINALLY completed the fourth book in my prehistoric series of book. I have it for sale in my online store (over at Big Cartel). It’s an edition of 30. Just one more book and I’ll have finished the Paleozoic…I’m still debating whether to do the […]

The CAKE report

Posted by on Jun 9, 2015 in News | No Comments

Just got back from Chicago last night, after a VERY delayed flight due to flight cancellation and bad weather. So, yes, as you can see, I survived my Chicago trip: I did not get lost and die in a ditch somewhere. After talking with a couple of other out-of-town exhibitors, I found out I’m the […]

CAKE this weekend

Posted by on Jun 3, 2015 in Exhibitions | No Comments

It’s that time again! The time that I bring all my silkscreened stuff to a comic book festival. This time I’ll be at CAKE in Chicago, which is a completely new city for me. The thoughts of getting on an airplane once again and possibly getting lost in Chicago are currently filling my mind with […]

That dress picture…

Posted by on Mar 4, 2015 in Silkscreen | No Comments

That dress picture with the “ambiguous” colors that’s been circulating has started to bother me…well mostly the people who say it’s blue and black. Am I missing the joke? They’re trolling right? How can you possibly see black on that dress? To finally put this to rest, I employed Photoshop to sample some colors. As […]

Learning and transitioning

Posted by on Feb 27, 2015 in News | No Comments

I don’t remember if I mentioned this before, but I bought a Cintiq 22HD last November. It took many months of planning and thinking to splurge $2000 on one single piece of equipment. Overall, I’m actually really happy with my purchase even though I haven’t drawn with it all that much…I think I’ve done about […]

Rating offices

Posted by on Jan 26, 2015 in personal thoughts | No Comments

The past four days, I’ve worked for four different clients, and it struck me that I’ve worked with a lot of companies the past couple of years. Given the amount of offices I’ve worked in, I thought maybe I should rate them. That’s the thing I like most about being freelance : it feels like […]

CAKE and updates on projects

Posted by on Jan 26, 2015 in News | No Comments

Just got confirmation today that I got into CAKE! Woohoo! I applied last year but didn’t get in. Don’t know what to expect, but at the very least I get to see Chicago…I’m sight-seeing the U.S through comic book festivals, and on that note, it’s too bad there’s no festivals around the Grand Canyon. But […]

Reflections and resolutions

Posted by on Dec 23, 2014 in News | No Comments

Going through crazy Comicfestathon made me re-evaluate what I was trying to achieve with my art. Are the expenses associated with fests “worth it”? Thinking about it, I only started doing festivals because people told me that’s how I should promote my work. But if I examine my own behavior, the primary way I discover […]

So you want to table at a festival….part 1

Posted by on Nov 30, 2014 in Tutorial | No Comments

Since I’ve been exhibiting at festivals for four years (about 14 festivals total), I thought I should do a post giving pointers to people who are thinking of doing the whole festival circuit. Not that I’m the authority on this subjects, but there has to be some valuable lesson hidden in my experiences. So first […]

Winter cleaning

Posted by on Nov 15, 2014 in News | No Comments

With my sister leaving New York in a few weeks, I’ve “inherited” a lot of stuff. A lot of stuff I don’t want. Combine that with the fact I also own useless things, I had a serious need to unload a lot of crap. Today, I went to Best Buy to recycle a couple of […]
