The 2013 Small Press Expo is right around the corner. Held every year at the Bethesda North Marriott Hotel & Conference Center, SPX is like Comicon but with no big names and no big egos. It's a great gathering of cutting edge and underground comics, creators, and all around artistic inspiration.
I will be in attendance selling my newest collection of alphabetical drawings, AlphaBots. I will also be selling copies of my previous Alphabet Press minis, Animal Alphabet and AlphaBeasts. If you're interested in coming to SPX, it's being held on Saturday, September 14 and Sunday, September 15. Check out their website here: http://www.spxpo

I don't appreciate that. In fact I find it disrespectful and maddening.
If they are willing to arbitrarily change everyone's avatar, which is a personal representation of each artist, then they might as well start making changes to people's artwork. I would hope that the people who run a site
Anybody? Can anybody explain why my avatar has been changed to some random gay shit? I don't know who this douche in my avatar is, but I'd like it GONE. Like, NOW.
I've had the same avatar on my DA account ever since I started coming here. If I had wanted it changed I would have done it myself.
Seriously. Da fuck?
