SDCC 2015 - Small Press Q-15 by shoomlah
SDCC 2015 - Small Press Q-15
Holy HECK you guys – after twelve years of attending, I'm finally going to have a table at San Diego Comic-Con this year!  You can find me in the Small Press area, towards the back of the hall, at table Q-15.  I'll have the usual fare (prints, postcards, art books), and will hopefully have the time to do some on-site sketches while I'm there.  Nothing remarkably new for sale this time around (work is insane, give me a break), but I'm psyched to be showing at a new con and to see all your fresh faces! :D

I'll also be on two panels during the duration of the con, if you want to track me down then:

Thursday July 9, 2015 8:00pm - 9:00pm 
Room 30CDE
The realm of creation has never been a more accessible thing. With the rise of self-publishing, e-books, webseries, webcomics, podcasting, and cosplay, how do you know where to start? This panel looks at how to create a character from scratch as well as how to create the back-story, personality, and design of that character. Panelists include Claire Hummel (Bioshock Infinite, artist), Sheyne Fleischer (League of S.T.E.A.M., editor), Andrew Fogel (League of S.T.E.A.M., director), and Glenn Freund (UC Berkeley) to discuss, things to look out for when creating a character, how your character can thrive, and the functionality and forum in your character.

Friday July 10, 2015 8:30pm - 9:30pm 
Room 24ABC
You've heard of Steampunk, but what exactly distinguishes this unique subgenre from other branches of science fiction? Andrew Fogel (The League of S.T.E.A.M.), Brian Kesinger (Walking Your Octopus), Claire Hummel (Bioshock: Infinite), Yomi Ayeni (Clockwork Watch), and Glenn Freund (The League of S.T.E.A.M.) dissect and debate pop culture examples of literature, movies, TV, video games, comics, and more.

See you guys there,
Mumia by shoomlah

My final piece for the GUTS show at Light Grey Art Lab this weekend!  Surprise: it involves mummies and hieroglyphs.

Even if you can’t make the opening out in Minneapolis, you can still peruse the show and pick up prints over at the LGAL shop!  Go check it out – the artists in this show are mind bogglingly amazing.

I haven’t spell checked my hieroglyphs since I was first writing them out but here’s hoping they hold up,


Emerald City Comicon 2015 - Booth 905! by shoomlah
Emerald City Comicon 2015 - Booth 905!

Kinda last minute, but I will be at Emerald City Comicon this year!  I’ll be at Booth #904, same as last year, though this time I’ll be sharing with the inimitable Bridget Underwood – good buddy and crazy talented animator/illustrator.

I’ll have my usual fare – postcards, prints, art books – though I unfortunately don’t have a new book this year, just as a heads up!  Life kinda kicked me in the shins the past couple of months, so I’m hoping to get something out by SDCC. <:)

See you guys there!

I'm nothing if not terrible about telling you folks about things at the last minute, right?  So let's not break tradition- I'm going to be heading down to LA this weekend for the Line Weight III show at Nucleus Gallery!  This is a show dedicated entirely to traditional linework- I rarely get to sell originals, let alone six of them, so I'm pretty excited.  Additional details:

  • Just take a moment to stare at that flyer and look at what good company I'm in, I'll wait.  I KNOW RIGHT?  It's daunting.  I'm flattered.  I love all these guys.
  • I'll also be doing a LIVE DEMO at the gallery during the opening on Saturday, which I am not at all terrified about!  You can head over to the Gallery Nucleus twitter if you want to win whatever I end up drawing- I promise I'll try to draw something cool.  Just for you.

Can't wait for this weekend, and hope to see some of you guys there!
