It's been a while.....

Damn. It has been quite a while since I've posted. It was a tough last few months, but were getting things back on track, and I managed to stay nerdy. I'm back and (hopefully) better than ever.

Sooo....what have I been up to? I will fill you in with a series of short posts over the next week or so!!
Here goes, friends. a Simpsons character!
Last month, October 20th to be precise, I made it up to Bellingham, Washington to check out the Bellingham Comicon. I expected a small comic show with a few vendors and cosplayers, but was blown away! The venue was packed wall to wall with awesome area vendors, fans, and comic personalities! I'm guessing over 1000 attendees throughout the day. I see this con getting bigger every year!
Randy Emberlin chatting with fans.
My highlights were meeting and getting sketches from one of my favorite artists Stefano Gaudiano, who's done work on Daredevil and Batman! I also got a really cool sketch of myself as a Simpsons character done by Nina Matsumoto who's worked on Simpsons and Futurama comics.

There were also other great artist/ creators there like Randy Emberlin (who's worked for all the majors on titles like Star Wars, G.I. Joe, Silver Surfer and a long run on Spider Man titles), James Lloyd (also from Simpsons and Futurama), and Mark Rahner (Co-writer/ Creator of the criticaly acclaimed, and one of my favorite comics, Rotten)
