Wonderfest 2010 and other reports...

Hi Everyone!
Well, no new art post today. Hopefully I will have something soon. I was doing yard work and for 2 weeks my arms were covered with itchy blisters from poison ivy. On top of that, I've been working extra hours at my job, which takes away from my precious drawing time.
Well, it's a bit late but I wanted to mention that last month I sold prints of my work for the first time at Wonderfest in Louisville, KY. It was a great experience, even though I was very nervous. I met a lot of wonderful people and hope that next year, we'll be able to stay an extra day or two. Seems like there was just so much packed into about 2 1/2 days. Above you'll see me, cheezin' it up for the camera before we went to dinner on Friday. Nothing important here, I just liked the picture :P.

I also got to meet some fantastic artist/people while I was there. Below is a photo of me with Mark Maddox.

And here I am with Frank Dietz, who was my table neighbor all weekend. I had to keep borrowing his black pen because I lost mine.

I had Maddox & Dietz both sign my copy of Little Shoppe of Horrors #22. Since that was the first issue that I contributed to, my goal is to meet and have every artist who participated in this issue sign it. It may take me a while.
I also got to meet Jeff Preston and William Stout who, unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to get photos of. But they were both super nice and I was pleased to meet them.

And closing out for today, I wanted to mention that I was featured on Turner Classic Movies official blog, Movie Morlocks today. This was very exciting for me & I was so thrilled to be asked. Check it out:
