2019 was personally a great year for me. Retro debuted at the Dances with Films festival. Siren’s Song with Andy Nordvall hit #1 on the Amazon Kindle in science fiction and fantasy illustration. We even broke into the print top 100 of ART! Pablo the Gorilla was funded and delivered on Kickstarter! It even sold out at my local comic shop. They’re on their second helping!
How is 2020 so far? Well, it’s going crazy!
I have 7 conventions on my schedule!
My first one of the year was Long Beach Comic Expo and I’d say it was a rousing success😊
Next up is Wondercon in Anaheim. Find me at Artist Alley table B-50 April 10-12th !

To those who have been following the blog since the beginning, thank you. As this year winds down, I’m finishing work on some projects and starting on others.
Can you believe the year that happened? I’ve been very fortunate in these trying times to find a little shine and it’s thanks to everyone for the support.
Andy Nordvall & I saw our Inktober 2017 project, Siren’s Song, go #1 on Amazon Kindle and break into the top 100 in print for Sci-fi and fantasy art books. We beat out Star Wars & Legend of Zelda. We were in the Art top 100 with Basquiat. If you supported, be sure to leave a review!
Aaron Lindenthaler & I saw our short film Retro debut on the big screen as an official Dances with Films selection. The premiere was at TCL Chinese Theatres in Hollywood, California! How bonkers is that?
Can’t forget that Pablo the Gorilla came to fruition! Thanks to everyone who joined Team Pablo to see this comic through! I’m so happy and proud to have fulfilled this campaign. How insane is it to see a Dustin Nguyen variant cover too!
Starting off the new year will be an appearance at Long Beach Comic Expo. Pablo will start making the rounds at conventions this year as he got a late start at Los Angeles Comic Con. Remember, I’ll be sharing not only my schedule but Dustin’s coinciding ones too; so, be sure to grab a copy of his variant, get it autographed & thank him for supporting indie projects!
Check out this crazy con schedule for 2020!
In 2017, Andy Nordvall & I met as part of SDCC Comic Creator Connection. We decided to tackle Jake Parker’s Inktober that year. Yesterday our book was ranked 74 on Kindle in our genre. I thought the top 100 was cool. Today… it’s #6! We’re in the top 10! We beat out a book about the Legend of Zelda! Would it be possible to make #1?! It won’t happen without you! Click here to buy.
If you’re at Rose City Comic-Con, stop by BB-10 and check out my wares! I’ll have copies of Siren’s Song, A Jupiter The Space Pug mini-comic, sketchbooks and prints! This will be my first Artist Alley ever! Hope you see you there and thank you to all those
First off, this was my favorite Comic-Con exclusive I got: my panel name table tent. To think I was so excited, I jumped off stage when the panel ended to thank peeps for coming and almost forgot it. Does CGC grade these? One of one for 2018!
Now Andy Nordvall’s done this before, but this was my first time promoting my own work as part of the Comic Creator Connection panel (as opposed to my first time ever on an SDCC stage because Jim Lee picked a super enthusiastic attendee)
Here’s the panel of All-Star creators.
I’ve tagged everybody on Instagram (because I haven’t tracked down everyone on Twitter yet).
Here are the projects by and from the panel hosts and Comic Creator Connection panelists
Here’s Andy and me at the Geekscape booth with Jonathan London.
Signing and sketching!

This image concluded Andy Nordvall’s and my Inktober collaboration, Siren’s Song. The last prompt was, “Mask.” We hope you enjoyed the process and the final images. We are now looking to print; so, keep an eye out!
The prompt for Day 30 was “found” and this was the finished image for Siren’s Song.
