My #NYCC 2016 Schedule

My #NYCC 2016 Schedule

I’ll be at New York Comic Con this week. I’ll be at C12 in Artist Alley the whole show, excepting…

Thursday
3:00-4:00pm: Signing at the IDW booth

Friday
12:30-1:30pm: I’m doing a teaching workshop  Family HQ – 1E16

Also, my “Captain Kirk and His Ladies” piece will be auctioned at the NYCC charity auction. The original and a giclee print (24×6, full color) are a package. This is the only place you can get the green wrap shirt Kirk.

I’ll have two giclee prints with gold shirt Kirk for $75 at my table. And then a more in the smaller 18×5 size, the same as my Doctors Who print at the table for $15.

Also at the table I’ll have Love and Capes, Long Distance, My Little Pony and more, including original art, sketchcards and more. I’ll be sketching all weekend long, and being a mildly amusing conversationalist, too!

My Wizard World Cleveland Schedule

I’ll be at Wizard World Cleveland this weekend. Sure, my commission list is open and I’ll be at my table most of them time, But if you like seeing me on a stage talking about stuff, you’ll have three separate opportunities to do that, too!

FRIDAY
4:30 – 5:15PM HOW TO DRAW FUNNY! WITH THE SIMPSONS’ PHIL ORTIZ, LOVE AND CAPES’ THOM ZAHLER AND NANCY’S GUY GILCHRIST (ROOM 26A)

Join Thom Zahler (Love and Capes, My Little Pony) and friends as they discuss the ins and outs of setting up at a convention. What do you bring? What do you need?

Come see—and join in—the creative process!

Long Distance Comic Contest

Tomorrow sees the release of the first issue of Long Distance, my new project published by those fine people at IDW. I could use some help getting the word out, and so I turn to you.

Tweet something about the comic, along with the hashtag #longdistancecomic and I’ll enter you in a drawing for a two-character color commission of your choice. Tweet a picture of the comic along with it, and that will count for five entries! The contest will wrap up on June 17, 2015 at noon EST.

It’s my first brand-new thing since Love and Capes, so I’m both excited and nervous. Thanks for your support.

How to Order Long Distance

My new romantic comedy comic Long Distance will be in stores soon, and it’s in Previews now. Pre-ordering is essential for the success of books like these, and while I’m sure you can navigate the Diamond system just fine, I’m trying to make it a little easier for everyone.

There are two covers for the book, so two order codes. The one by me is APR150443 and the one by Lora Innes is APR150444.

But I’m not going to stop there. I’ve made a handy printable graphic for you to give your comic shop owner, so that they can place the order for you.

And because I’m still not done, I’ve even made an iPhone sized one that you can just show to your retailer to order it and save a tree!

I’m excited about this new series and I hope you are, too. The first issue comes out in June, but please pre-order it now.
