A Josh Burggraf Christmas

Filed under: Web Comics — Tags: , , — William Cardini @ 7:07 am

My buddy Josh Burggraf surprised me by adding colors to my 2010 comic called “Miizzzard in ATTACK”:

Josh has another gift for the Internet, a fun five-page full-colored comic called “Space Date”.

I hope that y’all all have happy and chill holidaze. This blog will be back in 2013.

I’ve got some paintings and drawings in Surreal Landscapes, a show curated by my friend Cari Palazzolo. There’s a bunch of other awesome Austin artists in it also. There’s a reception this upcoming Thursday. Here’s the flyer:

The flyer samples this watercolor I finished recently, “Landscape with Reptoid Skull”:

I’ve also been working on a large acrylic painting:

Vortex #3 Release Recap

Filed under: Events,Print Comics — Tags: , — William Cardini @ 7:46 am

Thanks to everyone who came by the Vortex #3 book release at Domy Books this past Wednesday, I had a good time!

Vortex 3 release party at Domy

When Vortex #2 came out, I had a joint release party / reading with Melinda Tracy Boyce (she was putting out The Melinderly #1). We projected panels from our comics and performed them to an audience. I thought it was fun, but since then, I’ve been to signings here in Austin where the cartoonists just set up a table and personalized books for everyone who came up. I like interacting with people individually more so I thought I’d give it a shot (I also didn’t have enough new, non-Vortex comics to fill another reading). I dug it but I might switch things up again next time.
