Wake me up when September ends...

 

Oh wait... It's pretty much done... (ba-dum-psh) In just 3 weeks, the Mega Mini Monster Mash gallery will open at the Art Institute in Santa Ana!  I've put a map here on the right.

It'll be a one night event with art, vendors, food, and fun activities! I'll have a couple of pieces in the gallery and I'm sure you'll see me floating around and gushing at all the awesome artists vending at the Artist Lodge event. 

And in November, I'll be at Designer Con in Pasadena sharing a booth with my lovely friend Diana!

Hey! It's Update Time!

Hello blogosphere~ Is that still a thing?  What are the kids saying these days?  (insert grandma emoji here.)

Anyway, as the title says it's update time!  I've been trying to change and streamline my website and print branding for a little while now and I've been slowly making updates here and there!  I like to keep the website a bit more minimal and let my art and design work speak for itself, but the portfolio pieces will slowly but surely be getting a makeover too. 

In other news, I've got my 4 major events set for the year with (hopefully) a few more smaller things in between.  So here's where I'll be for the next few months.  I hope to see some familiar faces and maybe meet a few new ones!  I'll try my best to have a lot of new art and merch and some other fun goodies.  (Success Pose!)

2017 events! :D

2017 events! :D

Cheers! 

Girl POW-er!

Hello friends!  I'm so excited to announce a new project I'm involved in! Her-POW! New Adventures of Vintage Comic Book Heroines!

It is a crowd-funding campaign via Seed & Spark to get some wonderful vintage FEMALE heroes to star in their own short films.  In the golden and silver age of comics (1940s-1950s) these bad-ass ladies headlined their own comic strips.  Here's a bit about the project:

Thanks to the internet, many of these strips can now be found online. And thanks to many of these characters falling into the public domain, these amazing heroines can now return for new adventures!
Of the over 75 characters we identified in the public domain, our writers chose three for our first round of filmmaking. They are: The Woman in Red, The Veiled Avenger, and Ghost Woman. (We will share more about each of these characters in updates as this campaign progresses.)
Each of these fantastic heroines will be the star of a short film, which will serve as either a proof of concept for a feature, or the pilot of a webseries. These shorts will be uploaded to the internet for public consumption as soon as they are finished, so we can spread the word and share the love.

The Veiled Avenger (aka Ginny Spears)

Vicarious Films is asking for your help to see their vision come alive!  And here's where I come in!  One of the incentives for backing the project will be a new original illustration of the Veiled Avenger by yours truly. (insert gif of my shoulder shimmy here)  Or if you are so inclined, there are several other fab female illustrators on their line-up!  

I really hope you're able to support this project if not through backing, then spreading the word would be greatly appreciated!  If things go SUPER (wink) there may even be a second print run down the line! 

Yowza... Summer (event season) is coming...

Real life, amirite?!  Cosplay Expo is just a few days away and I'll be peddling my wares in the Artist Alley area.  It's shaping up to be a fab lineup.  Tickets will be available at the door or can be purchased online here.  It's $15 if you want to attend panels or just $10 for the vendor/artist alley area.

The end of 2016 is shaping up to be a busy one. I'll be honest... I'm feeling a little out of my element, but I think it's pushing me in a good direction.  And hopefully it's an ongoing momentum.
