This weekend is Anime Weekend Atlanta!
My friend Dan Houser and I will be doing arts for people. It will be fun!
I hope to see you there.
I have lots of awesome stuff just coming up around the corner with Vigilance Press, but I've been too busy to update here as often as I should... sorry.

PS- Stop by at AWA and say hello!
No art today (Dragon Con is taking up most of my time), but I did find time to put together a podcast with author Lucien Soulban! Check it out via our Vigilance Press website... he's giving away prizes in the form of Mutants and Masterminds books, and we're adding some PDF downloads for additional prizes!

This year's Gen Con will be special, because it'll be the first year I show up representing Vigilance Press as owner and publisher. I'm hoping to grab a table in the dealer's room for next year, but this year Dan and I will be once again in the Anime Artist's Alley in the hotel across from the Dealer's Room. Check your Gen Con m
JAFAX's Theme this year is "Anime University." I've been attending JAFAX here in Michigan for the past 12 years or so, and it never gets old.
This year, however, I'm not trying to sell my own wares, I'm scouting other artists. It's a strange feeling, walking through the Artist's Alley and scouting other people's art. I'm used to giving critiques and doing art trades and so forth, but this year I'm critically appraising people and gauging whether I think they'd be a good fit for a Vigilance Press product. I almost feel like an undercover agent or a truant officer, spying on all these hopefuls and trying to pick the ones who are ready to step
Welcome to 2012!
This year is already starting off with a bang. Yesterday I got to put inks down atop the amazing pencils of one of my artistic heroes: Denise Jones. You can find the finished inks here: http://jamesdawsey.deviantart.com/art/Strange-Attractors-Inking-Stage-280359848
Today I get to color it. With Valentine's Day being one of my least-participated in holidays, it's strange I should be having so much fun with our upcoming release: "Strange Attractors." Jack Norris set the bar a little higher than I expected with the text, but with Denise's help I think we can really make this project something to remember. I hope you'll enjo
