SpeakEasy’s Annual Comic Book Show

Hey! On November 3rd – a Thursday – you can come see some excellent comics artwork & artists at The Gladstone Hotel. There’s a lot of talent over several rooms & I’m proud to be showing again, & happy to see some faces I met last year, though I won’t have last year’s crutch of performing mini-interviews to help me mingle.

This Thursday! SpeakEasy’s Annual Comic Book Show

Comic Arts Show

I will be upstairs at this year’s SpeakEasy’s Annual Comic Book Show. It happens Thursday, November 4th.

I will be displaying finished comic book & webcomic art on my wallspace, plus have my portfolio of original art on hand.

Also, I’m going to do my best to cover the night for Pete DeCourcey’s comicbookdaily.com. It’ll be a good excuse to meet the other artists, none of whom I know. I have met Tyrone from Guerrilla Printing, though, as they print my Lynchpin dead tree comics.
