In Wheeling, WV, there’s a YWCA, and they had their first Mini Convention this past Sunday, May 27th. It was like a comic convention, but small and only lasting from 12 pm to 5 pm, and admission was a donation of your choice to benefit the YWCA. Continue reading →

I came back Sunday night from 2 days of 3 Rivers Comic Con in Pittsburgh, and I had a BLAST! Obviously I’ve been to conventions before, but this was my first time at 3 Rivers CC. However, there were some things I did not expect from the show, but all of them were pleasant surprises. Continue reading →

I’m Going to RathaCon

by

Oh hey, a super short video update to let you know I’m going to RathaCon this weekend in Athens, OH.

I went to RathaCon last year and it was a lot of fun. They asked me to come back again this year, to which I said, “OF FREAKING COURSE,” and if you’re in the area, you can see me May 7th and 8th at the Athens Community Center.

Hope to see you there!

If you can’t make it, you can still pre-order the first issue of Charlie & Clow. Patrons of Validation also get a cool little bonus.

Thanks for watching and reading!

You. Are. Awesome.

Conventions and Travelling for 2015

A selfie at Youmacon.

Last year I did a few convention appearances. I appeared at Phoenix Comicon, Free Comic Book Day at the Apache Junction Public Library, Intervention Con, and Youmacon (where I only attended and didn’t sell any work or appear at panels).

This year, since I have moved from Arizona to Ohio, I’m hoping to make more appearances at some Midwest conventions, particularly those in Columbus.

I’ve been approached by one convention, and there’s one I’m hoping to get to down in Savannah, Georgia, because a friend of mine (Chloe Rose, who’s attending school there) wants to go.

However, in between convention planning and making comics, I’ve been writing, particularly in Claire and Tracy’s story.

Well, a lot of the stories I’m writing recently (especially their’s in particular) take place in places I haven’t visited in a long while. Like Chicago. And Pittsburgh. And there are even some that may take place in New Mexico or Tennesee.

So I’m wondering…should I take some time away from conventions…so I can go on research trips?

Another friend of mine, Suzy, did a research trip in lieu of conventions, and that has inspired me to consider doing the same thing.

I have quite the travel bug, and I would love to do more of it so I can see new sights, meet new people, write about new things, and share more of my experiences.

Either way, whether I do more conventions or more research trips, I intend to write about them here on this blog.

Have any suggestions for places to go? Travel tips? just have something you gotta’ say? I would love to read about it in comments.

Thank you for reading and I will see you on Monday.
