LA Zoo Art Day over the weekend!


Greetings fans!

No, you didn't miss a convention appearance I did at the last minute (I would've told you that). LA Zoo Art Day was just a personal excursion with two artist friends sketching various animals in the facility. We even found our inner child both feeding the giraffes and riding the carousel. Side note: As much as I like '80s music, it seemed an odd fit to have "We Got the Beat" by The Go-Gos, and "Heaven" by Bryan Adams on a ride for kids growing up today. Perhaps they knew three thirty-somethings were coming that day. Anyways, onto the art: We did live sketching of a Gorilla, Zebra, and Giraffe, which I have attached with this email for your viewing pleasure.

Also of note is my completion of pages 4-6 of "Just Imagine, shipping 10 copies each of Damn Tourists issues 1 and 2 to Oahu to be sold at Amazing Comic Con Aloha next weekend (August 24-26) by other members of the Hawaiian Comic Book Alliance. For this weekend, I will be representing another comic organization I'm apart of: The Comic Arts Professional Society (or C.A.P.S.) at the Power Morphicon Convention in Anaheim August 17-19. CAPS has a booth there that eight people can share in shifts. I will be taking a Noon to 3 PM shift on Saturday the 18th, and Sunday the 19th. Due to space limitations in sharing a table, I will have only one or two sets of books with me, along with paper for sketches of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers (as that is what this con is celebrating, hence the Morphicon name). Before I go, I will leave you with a reminder of my remaining four shows of 2018 after Power Morphicon:
