Hi ho, all!

It’s been a strange week. I’ve been “done” with my final Squid Row toons for a week or so… and have felt odd. It feels strange to not have that routine… something I’ve been living by since 2007. For 8 years-ish, I’ve kept 9-5, 5 days a week. I guess I needed a bit of a slow down or a break. So this last week, I’ve been not so rigidly strict to keeping my office hours, and have been a bit lost. It felt both good and bad…and … I guess it just feels weird.

ANYHOO … Some things going down soon… Big Wow is coming up in San Jose, Ca. I’m doing Artist Trading Cards for the event. Here’s a preview.

I’ve also started hand drawing unique one-of-a-kind buttons (1. 25 inches), which are MOST colorful and fun… I’ve been monkeying around with a new more doodle-y style and I’m liking it. It’s free-r and more stream of consciousness. I have found that working for so long in 3 or 4 panel boxes has made me rather tight and I needed some loosening up. So also-too, I’m working with markers (somewhat ignored by me in the past)… and this is fun and different.

If you happen to be near San Jose on April 18 & 19th… you should find me at Big WOW at the Convention Center. I will be drawing artist trading cards at my half table… on the spot!
