My hometown of Bellingham, WA is having its second annual comic convention this Saturday, September 27th from 10am to 5pm. I’m inviting everyone who lives in the Pacific Northwest to come and check it out.
Last year, the convention took everyone by surprise by exceeding attendance expectations with people from Vancouver, Seattle and Portland, showing in numbers for the event.
I will have a table on the show floor and will be available to sign and chat. I will have all my books and comics on hand as well as prints, a few insanely twisted rabbit sculptures and some cool freebies!
Bellcon 2008 will be located at: Whatcom Community College, 237 W. Kellogg Rd, Bellingham, WA 98226. Tickets for the full day are $7.00 for adults, $5.00 for kids under 12 and students with ID. Parking is free. There will be live music throughout the day and hourly drawings for cool stuff. Directions are available here.
ZED Available Through Haven Distributors
September 20, 2008
Last July, I announced that Diamond had decided to no longer distribute my series ZED to comics retailers due to pre-orders falling below the 1500 copies minimum. This left me with no outlet to get ZED into stores. Since then, I've managed to strike a new distribution deal in order to make my cute sci-fi series available to retailers once again.
I'm happy to report that Haven Distributors, previously known as Cold Cut Distribution, a company that specializes in making independent comics available to comics store retailers,. What's more, all my titles are generously discounted at a steep 50%!
If you're a retailer, get an account with Haven and take a look at the broad spectrum of indie titles they're offering. Diamond is fine for mainstream comics but can be ruthless for independents. We need alternative distribution for the indie scene and Haven can hopefully help fill that gap.
Vancouver International Jazz Festival Poster

I was commissioned by the Coastal Jazz and Blues Society to create the poster for the Vancouver International Jazz Festival of 2009. I documented my journey from initial thumbnails to completion on this page. Man, I love getting these kind of commissions!
My Lovely Wife's New Website
September 10, 2008
Last week, Nancy (my beloved wife) and I spent a full day together designing her new website.
the past few years, Nancy has been trying to make our
home as eco-friendly as possible. She's taught me how to re-use, reduce
and recycle as much as possible, and she always selects home products that
are bio-degradable, and non-toxic for the environment.
constant search for better and more effective environmentally-friendly
products have lead her to Shaklee, the nation's first Climate Neutral Certified company.
her continuing effort to help heal the planet, she has joined Shaklee as
an independent distributor. I'm happy she has found something she's passionate about
and fully endorse her venture and I hope you will too.
Thanks to "Slag Zombie's Sideshow" for the really nice write up!
