North Houston Comics Jam post-report

The first NHCJ came and went. So "how'd it go?" you may be asking yourself. Weeeeeeeeeell... Not so good. Let's be honest, I didn't seriously think we'd be busting the doors down but I thought at least a FEW people would show up. Instead one guy showed up asking, "Is this that drawing thing?" and I had a hunch he was there under the impression there'd be free food. At least he was a good sport about it and we even drew a couple of strips before calling it a night.

So it looks like the first NHCJ is also going to be the last NHCJ. Oh well. I tried. Lynn pointed out to me that this part of town is mostly older families/retirees and probably has fewer creative folks than the in-town Montrose/Westheimer areas. Ok, I'll give you that. But this part of town is also home to one of Houston's best comic shops, one of Houston's most ecclectic record stores, and a great art supply store that told me they had a lot of customers who draw comics so I guess you can understand why I'm so baffled by the dismal turnout.


I wonder if Cheese Hasselberger ever had days like this?

T-24 and counting...

Welp. Tomorrow is the big day! The very first meeting of the North Houston Comic Jam. I honestly have no idea what's going to happen. A ton of people might show up or nobody might show up. Either way I'm going to be there with my ziplock baggie full of pens and a stack of sketchpads ready to dive head first into whatever the hell happens. And also... Weinerboy.

Madamluna done went and posted a thing recently that reminded me of an old project I had squirreled away in my "Widows and Orphans" box of unfinished comics. Ladies and gentlemen I present to you...

Mo manga, mo problems...

I am seriously jazzed. Less than two weeks until the comic jam!

Also I've uploaded some more Tokion/Garo manga for your enjoyment. This time we've got Jiro Ishikawa's Got Little Got Big.

After way too many years of farting around in my sketchbooks I've finally mustered up the effort to get back to doing what I love.... Drawing comics. Here's a little preview of the strip I've been working on for the last couple of weeks.

It feels so weird to be making comics again. I'm practically having to re-learn how to do a lot of things but it's so satisfying to have something to focus my energies on. The finished product will be cleaned up on Photoshop and hopefully I'll have it up for your reading enjoyment in a week or two.
