Self-published Lost Falcon

March 10, 2020New art work
It's been a while since I last wrote a post. My ongoing battle with insomnia makes it hard to stay productive sometimes. I saw a new sleep doctor, and I FINALLY was prescribed sleep medicine, as opposed to anti-depressants that have sleep-inducing side effects. Turns out, sleep medicine doesn't stop me from waking up in [...]

Finishing up a comic 10 years in the making

May 9, 2019Silkscreen
I recently finished a comic that is now 10 years in the making. That comic is titled "Alien Encounters”. Much like my prehistoric books, it was also envisioned as a series, but one that hasn’t been as successful as my prehistoric series. I had created a silkscreen version of that comic 10 years ago, but [...]

Making toys

December 21, 2018New art work
Since I finished working on my Triassic accordion book, I’ve been wasting time making 3-d objects. I should be focused on making more books, but instead, I feel like making toys. I love toys…or rather, I used to love toys. I feel like, when I was young, I had stronger feelings about stuff. For instance [...]

The theme in my work

November 25, 2018Silkscreen
I haven’t posted in a while, so that means I have to post right now to give updates. I’m waiting for my shipment of Triassic books to arrive. I actually received 15 copies, just in time for Comic Arts Brooklyn, and I sold out. So, it’s good to know my prehistoric books still gets interest, [...]

Progress on Triassic book, and other project

August 19, 2018New art work
FINALLY! An update on the various stuff I've been working on. First and foremost, I have finished the artwork and text on "The Triassic." Now all that's left is to produce it...I don't know how that's going to happen since I'm not in New York, and therefore have no access to a print lab. I'll [...]

My struggle with Insomnia

August 7, 2018personal thoughts
In this blog post, I 'll talk about something personal that I’ve been going through for the past 10 months: insomnia. I’ve always been an insomniac, and usually, that meant going to bed very late. Night-time always made me anxious, and when I was young, I associated sleep with death. As an adult, I realize [...]

The year in review

February 8, 2018News
Usually, “year in review” posts are done in December and January. I’m posting mine in February because I shirk conventions. Last year, I was a bit disappointed with myself for only completing one project, “The Lost Falcon.” Part of the problem is my laziness, caused by anxiety. Anxiety plays a large part in all of [...]

New diorama

January 30, 2018New art work, Silkscreen
I finished a new project. It's a music box/diorama. Check out the video here to see it in action. Before I get into the whole "inspiration/process", let me do a quick plug that you can buy the one model I have in my shop. Okay, so with that out of the way, let's talk about [...]

New book: The Lost Falcon

November 9, 2017New art work
Just a couple of weeks ago, I finally finished my newest project "The Lost Falcon". I finished the bulk of the project back in August, but there were some loose ends that I just recently finished. The longer I work on a project the harder it is to keep working on it. It's a vicious [...]

BookExpo /Bookcon from a self-published author perspective

June 5, 2017Exhibitions, News
Yesterday, I finished my 5-day exhibition at Book Expo / BookCon. I debated attending this show for about 4 months. The main reason it took me so long to decide was because it would be the most expensive show I'd ever done: $1850 for a table. I tried searching online for some advice on whether this would be the [...]
