Alexandra Beguez is such a talented illustrator that I am so grateful to have taken part in this Small Ass Zines Project. She is an illustrator based in New Jersey and has been non-stop spreading her work in various zine shows- most recently the awesome TCAF that we had this year! ( I sadly missed her!! ) She is also part of a comics collective called The Three Armed Squid <—check it out! 

This uber cute zine is called, “Best In Show” about all her winning kiwi breeds- so cute! I’ll be taking theses babies to Japan for the Tokyo Art Book Fair!

Just completed my latest carousel book. All silkscreen printed, cut , glued and bound by hand. It takes me 2.5 hours to build one book, and I printed enough pages for 30 books, so I’ve got a lot of work to do.

The subject is black and white ruffed lemurs and habitat loss. The pop-up nature of the book makes it hard to see the background, but I assure you I drew a fire and burned out trees.

Finished the fanart I posted last week. The final result has been screenprinted on French Butcher White 12x19 paper

I decided to include some gifs to show the work behind this piece. One gif shows the drawing process, I started by taking a picture of a convertible for reference, then drew from there. The other gif shows each layer of color as I was silkscreen printing it. Here’s a video about silkscreen for those who don’t know what it is. Needless to say, it’s quite a process and this took me 7 hours to print.

The print is available for sale in my bigcartel shop. Otherwise, I’ll be selling it at the next convention I do.

Grand Comics Festival :-D



     Another fest completed! This year was definitely a fun year for the Grand Comics Festival. Since its the second year, I felt like more people knew about it. When we were handing out promotional postcards during the MoCCA Arts Festival, a lot of people were telling us that they’ve heard of it about it last year. As opposed to last year, when people were just nodding their heads when we told them about the event and they’ve never heard of before.
     And since it was 1-day only Festival, there was less to no slow times. Last year there was a noticeable chunk of slow hours were the room almost had no one looking around. This year it was nice and steady. So, I hope this second year builds upon the Festival’s great reputation. The 3rd year should be even better!






     Grand Comics offers a balanced containable, group of established artists (like David Sandlin, Sara Varon, Dean Haspiel, Jess Ruliffson, etc) and up &amp; comers (like myself and fellow squids- Alexandra Beguez and Estrella Vega). Pat Dorian, the creator and owner of the Festival, definitely gets brownie points for creating a nice, intimate, and FREE fest to go to.

     I had a new zine debuting, The Qirin Hunter and is inspired more to do more! If you missed the show, I’ll see you next year or come visit my online store.



Thanks for stopping by!
