Join me in #SDCC #ComicConatHome #ArtistAlley HH-03 !

Pablo headed to virtual Comic-con!

Thanks for stopping by! First, my store is updated on Etsy and is now officially rebranded as Nguyening It! It also means I won’t be taking the time to do any needlefelting in the foreseeable future. Never say never though, right?

Stickers & buttons just added to the shop!

I’ll be getting magnets and possibly some original art up as well. I don’t know where Comic Con at Home will take me, but you don’t know unless you try and put forth some effort right?

My design for Gerry Conway’s Skulls for Justice is back!

Doing what I feel is the right thing #BlackLivesMatter #ReclaimthePunisherLogo @Gerryconway

So, two weeks ago I answered the call put out by Punisher co-creator Gerry Conway about a fundraiser for Black Lives Matter & a campaign to reclaim the Punisher logo from Law Enforcement.

Gerry reached out and asked to do a logo inspired by the Punisher skull, maintain the white skull on black background motif, add a red tear and incorporate Black Lives Matter. Here’s what I came up with & the response has been overwhelming.

The design I submitted incorporates elements of the Punisher logo with inspiration from the Black Power/Solidarity first.

Here are the process sketches for the design.

I’ve been making a bunch of art & I hope you enjoy it !

I’ve been posting primarily to IG & Twitter but I didn’t want to leave my longtime blogosphere people out. So, I thought I’d post some highlights here. I hope everyone is safe and well during this pandemic. Also, you can still pickup a free digital of Pablo the Gorilla at AltFCD or Alt-Free Comic Day until the end of today. If you enjoy it, don’t forget to nominate it for the Ringo Awards at Ringoawards.com for all applicable categories!

Now for some original art!

A little while back… @Mikekorpi

I previewed some character sketches for a project I was doing with my friend Mike Korpi. Well, I actually finished that piece but I’m going to be showing you that work here. As you may know, Wannabe Press’s Cthulu Is Hard to Spell: the Terrible Twos funded and is headed to production. Amazing people are still supporting art and creativity in this time.  It’s a tough time for the world right now.  A lot of people are hurting. I hope artwork and stories can help alleviate some if the anxiety and give people escape.  As always, thanks for being here.

#SilverSurfer #OKBoomer #Galactus

ICYMI, people were offended by being called boomers last week. I saw “Boomer” trending and thought it was an Oklahoma thing but apparently it’s the millennial counter employed toward the Boom generation’s constant derision and scoffing of their beliefs (did I get that right? ). So, let me get this right (not taking sides), Boomers constantly taunt millennials but then are upset by being called what their generation is known as? I’m a bit lost. However, I’m pretty sure I read that comic and it’s Silver Surfer 😂.

Did this for a Pablo the Gorilla Kickstarter sketch reward.

Overwatch #Batman @Pablothegorilla sketch fulfillment for #kickstarter

I think someone will be pleasantly surprised when they get this. The 2 most popular requests for sketches were Pablo and “surprise me. ” Lol.

Does this mean I’m a part of the #zine community now?

So, I finished Inktober and thought, “I have enough pages. I think I can make a zine! ” So, I did!

Well, I made one as a proof. Once it’s reviewed, I’ll continue printing and refining my printer settings.

Also, I’ll be doing 3 signings this week in Los Angeles for Pablo the Gorilla. On Wednesday, November 6th, I’ll be at the Comic Bug in Culver City from 11-2p then at the Manhattan Beach location from 5-8p.

To end the week, come celebrate at Nostalgic Books and Comics on Saturday, November 9th in San Gabriel Valley!

31 days of #Inktober completed. Here’s page 9 covering Days 28-31: Ride, Injured, Catch & Ripe.

I hope you enjoyed my third year completing #Inktober with Jake Parker’s prompts. Congrats to all those who completed and a part on the back to those that made the effort!

#Inktober day 30: Catch

I was just going to finish the challenge but I’m honestly spent. I’ll finish as orginally planned tomorrow… or today🤣 Also looking forward to finishing kickstarter reward fulfillment. 2 tiers left. Happy Halloween!
