TWO PAGE UPDATE THIS WEEK

This week there will be a TWO PAGE UPDATE! Check back tomorrow for the next page. 

On another note, this weekend I went to The Society of Illustrators to accept the Silver Medal for Drinking Buddies in the First Annual Comic Cartoon Competition. Met so many nice people, was in awe of all the talent in the room.  Want to thank them again for such a welcoming event!

Be nice to yourself this weekend, come to CAKE! I will be tabling there, so please stop by to say hi! It is taking place at: The Center on Halsted, 3656 N Halsted, May 31-June 1, 11am-6pm. (the much more beautiful banner was made by Carrie Vinarsky)

What will be at table 92A, you ask? Mini-comics from past and future! There is a SECRET-ish DEBUT of the current Blimpakind story (now secretly complete only in print), The Isles of Amos. Also, a regular debut of the first Blimpakind story, Drinking Buddies.There will also be the remainder of limited edition prints, original drawings, laughs and many tearful reunions.

To make a long story short, this past week was both the worst and best of my life. Therefore, making it very hard for me update Blimpakind on monday, like I oath’d I would. Nevertheless, the page is up now! check it out, as usual, at Blimpakind

The happier part of my week was tabling at TCAF for the first time. I want to thank everyone that stopped by to say hello; to fellow old/new comic pals— it was really nice to see/ meet all of you and be inspired by your great work! 

The weekly plague (9!) is up on Blimpakind! 

Even though monday is almost over, page 8 got posted. Moving deeper into the mob in another ever-creepening installment of blimpakind

From this week’s page onward, the non-existent parody song, “The Mobster Mash” is the theme to welcome the new batch of mafia type characters. While reading, feel free to play Monster Mash if you have it**. Just pretend that the words are different. On the other hand, you don’t have to pretend anything—the original is a great song. blimpakind

**I’m such a dummy, why would you NOT have that song?

                                       Amos is on the fine edge,

                                       (New page at Blimpakind)

Page Five of Blimpakind has something for everyone! Includes: Trying Times! Desperation! Confusion and Sobbing! Lots…of sobbing. Really, more sobbing than not. image

       Shifty stuff is now afoot with a new character, on the next page of                                   Blimpakind. All I can say is… oy vey.     

In June, I will be tabling another year at CAKE (Chicago Alternative Comics Expo). They kindly asked me to submit a page to their CAKE Book 2014. This is what I came up with. Since the book came out for Chicago Zinefest last weekend, I figured it was okay to put it up now.

The third and final chapter in “The Ravenwood Affair” is up! 

And that’s it! The adventure’s over. It’s been a real treat getting to share these with y’all over the weekend. If you saw the posts about this but didn’t have time to read it, go ahead and start from the beginning when you get a chance. Don’t forget to bust out your favorite wide-brimmed fedora. 

My skilled and utterly talented friend Carter just finished doing some amazing illustrations, once again, alongside his writer friend Conor Eifler. (They did a collaborative comic a while back called The Coup, that is still by far one of the greatest things I’ve ever read. I am convinced these two were put on this earth to collaborate with each other). This story is a noir-type Indiana Jonesy story (and what do you know, Indy shows up in the flesh!). I just started reading my way through, but I love it so far! It’s really exciting, well done, and moves fast. Please head on over there and read it!
