SO MUCH NEWS!
Let's get you all caught up!
'The Littlest Knight', my first childrens picture book, has been doing great! we're coming up on half our initial printing sold. That's 250 copies! Regardless if we sell out of the full 500 I'm really proud at how my first publication has come along.

We had a public signing for the book at a local store, Tag Along Toys, which turned out to be a great success. 31 books sold in just a couple hours and some very happy children who were given colouring pages I redesigned from moments in the book, stickers that the author had printed up and buttons minted off my brand new button maker!! YEAH!
(I have no idea if facebook photo links will work here in the journal if not check out my HueTwoArt facebook page!)
In other publication news, I've got a great comic book deal under way with a writer that I'll be beginning a treatment for in the next few months, we're going to finalize 6-10 pages and present it to Image and Top Cow for consideration. EXCITING!
I attended my first ever craft fairs these past few weeks, Ravenswing (www.facebook.com/pages/Ravensw…
) and Savoir Faire (thesavoirfaire.ca/
). It was great to get out of the home studio and spend some time meeting the hundreds of people who stopped and shopped at the table I shared with my lovely fiance and font of inspiration, Shawna.
I have another Wonder Geeks show I'm attending in Ottawa, Ontario! Those of you in town or visiting please make a stop by the local bar, Zaphod Beeblebrox, on June 17th between 8pm and 11pm! We're going retro for this show so be ready for stylings of the '80s and '90s. I've been developing some new art using some era specific styles like that of Andy Warhol and Patrick Nagel crossed with popular characters from video games/comics/anime of the times.
