- How long have you been drawing? Most of my life. I didn't pursue rigorous training when I was younger and am now am way, WAAAY behind where I should be.
- Do you do art requests or trades? Sorry, nope. Between a full-time job, my comic, and sleep, I don't have much time these days.
- Are you open for commissions? Very, very rarely, and only when I post an "open" notice. I love doing commissions, but as above, I just don't have the time.
- Do you do comics for a living? Nope; I'm a technical illustrator by day. I have no plans to make a career out of comics. The money's not so hot, and I think stress would suck a lot of the fun out of it.
- Will you be selling TJ and Amal as a book? Yes, in fact, Volumes 1 and 2 are now on sale, and I am hoping to put out Volume 3 in early 2014. Hopefully, the story will also be collected into a single big volume when it is completely done. In the meantime, it can be read here.
Iron Circus Comics will be publishing the collected edition of TJ & Amal - 528 pages, with scenery spreads in full color. You can preorder your copy via Kickstarter or buy it later from ironcircus.com or tjandamal.com!
Heads up- I'll be at San Japan this weekend in San Antonio, working Artist Alley table B-15 alongside the fabulously talented Jamie Kinosian! I'll only be there Saturday and Sunday the 19th and 20th. Will have copies of all 3 volumes of TJ & Amal, plus will be taking commissions!
A month after that, I'll be a guest at Otakuthon in Montréal, Quebec, August 22-24. I'm pretty psyched -- it'll be my first time in Montréal in over 20 years! (omg wanna eat at Filles Du Roy and Pied Du Cochon hnnngngg)
Hope to see you there!
Hey! Been a while.
Just wanted to let you guys know I'll be at Emerald City Comic Con (ECCC) March 28-30 in Seattle, and at Toronto Comic Art Festival (TCAF) May 10 and 11. I'll be selling TJ and Amal Volumes 1 and 2, Kung Fu Hustlers and Whisper Grass (adult side story comics), and will be taking commissions.
At ECCC, I'll be at table KK-09, on the third floor.
Also, check out the Boom! Studios booth at ECCC-- I did a wraparound cover illo for their con-exclusive hardcover Adventure Time collection. :D
I had hoped to debut TJ&A Volume 3 at TCAF, but RL crises pushed the press date back a couple of weeks. I don't know y
