…It has been over a month since I have updated the old blog. It’s not like I have had nothing to talk about, it’s just that I have been so busy. Last weekend I attended my seventh Comic Con in a row and boy are my feet sore! I could talk a lot about it, but I don’t have much energy to put in a whole review. If you check out my pictures on FACEBOOK, it will be worth 86,000 words!
Speaking of pictures, here are two of the highlights from this pass weekend:
BUILDING A CREATOR-OWNED CREATIVE TEAM SYMPOSIUM @ TR!CKSTER
Featuring storytellers MIKE ALLRED, SCOTT MORSE, LARRY MARDER, GREG RUCKA, JAMIE S. RICH, and more…
On Saturday I went to an offsite event that was an incredible experience. Hosted at the TR!CKSTER Bar/Gallery/Music Venue/Comfy Hangout, this Symposium was just what i needed to get some focus on my writing. In fact, this symposium got me so motivated that I have already set aside one day a week to focus completely on my creative writing. Thanks to Scott Morse and EVERYONE who created and organized this amazing oasis of creative talent.
The second picture is a commission that I received from Joëlle Jones of The Cricket. Between the symposium and this beautiful drawing of The Cricket, I am incredibly anxious to get moving on the book. I would really like to tell this story and I hope that my life allows me to move forward and really hunker down to finish writing it!
Yesterday, while I was at work, all I could to is think about The Cricket. I wanted to take Joëlle’s drawing of The Cricket and make it my desktop wallpaper. Since the drawing was more of a vertical piece as opposed to a landscape image, I widened it out and colored it. I hope that she doesn’t mind the alterations I made, but by having it on my desktop at all times, it allows me to constantly be reminded of the adventures I could be telling.
Here’s to the future and all the amazing people who inspire me!
