I finished drawing Vortex #3 this past week! It’s not quite done yet (I’ve still got post-production to do – patterns, tweaking, and corrections) but I feel good about getting this far. Here’s a preview of a double-page spread:
I’ve drawn 96 pages of Vortex so far. I think I can wrap the whole thing up in a fourth issue but there may be a fifth one also. But most likely no more than that! I’ll have details about Vortex #3’s con debut and release party soon.
Thanks to everyone who came by our table during APE 2012!
Table #807 at APE 2012. Left to right it’s me, Melinda Tracy Boyce, and Aaron Whitaker.
Although I’ve gone to MoCCA a couple of times as an attendee, this was my first time tabling at a big city con. Although I covered my table cost, I was surprised I didn’t make as much as I do in Austin at Staple! That might be because I’m a known quantity in my hometown. Regardless, traveling to one of the most expensive cities in America isn’t a good way to make some cash in the first place. Overall I had a blast and got to see friends and meet a lot of cartoonists I’ve only known online (as well as kewl new people). San Francisco is always a mystical, fog-shrouded adventure and I hope to be back for another APE!
I’m super stoked to let y’all know that I’m going to be at the Alternative Press Expo this weekend (October 13th and 14th) in San Francisco!
I’ll be representing the Gold County Paper Mill at Table #807, which I’m sharing with the fantastic cartoonists Aaron Whitaker and Melinda Tracy Boyce. Here’s a picture of all four of us with my wife, Glade:

I’ll have Vortex #1, Vortex #2, Future Shock #1, and Kid Space Heater #2. If I bring up any extra older stuff I’ll bring that also.
Previewing my tif files in Google Drive does interesting things to them. Here are corrupted versions of all six pages of my latest comic:
I think its works as an abstract comic. Props to Josh Burggraf for pointing this out to me.
I finally finished the six-page full-color comic that I’ve been working on and blogging about for the past few weeks. It’s going to be in the third issue of Future Shock, a sf anthology edited by Josh Burggraf.
Here’s the first page as a preview:
I’m pretty proud of this one, I put a lot of work into it. By the way, if you’ve wanted to buy the first issue of Future Shock or other comics put out by Josh that I’ve mentioned, they’re now available through the Birdcage Bottom Books distro.
