Issue 3 of WAIT...IT GETS WORSE debuted mid 2016 at MoccaFest and features auto biographical stories about life in New York written by Doug Latino and illustrated by Gideon Kendall along with several other cartoonists and artists. I had the pleasure of illustrating a two page story of Doug's titled I BARF NY! Here is page 1! To see how it ends you'll have to buy the comic which can be ordered here: http://www.whatzitcomic.com/shop/waitit-gets-worse-3
The printed comic is Black & White but I colored this page in photoshop for fun and practice:

Booked my 1st con for 2017! Inbeon Con, a great independent comic art con started and still ran by my pal and indie comic artist Eric Hutchison of Inbeon Studios. Hope to see all my New York friends and followers there on Aug 26th 10-4pm! For more info visit www.inbeoncon.com
The recent U.S. election results has left myself and many Americans disheartened,devastated and fearful about our future as a progressive nation. I took a few hours off from my regularly scheduled freelance workload to try and purge my anger creatively through my art. After drawing this tattoo/flash art inspired "DUMP TRUMP" piece I dusted off my old CAFE PRESS account and put this art on a bunch of T-Shirts, Buttons and other items. Through the sale of these items I'm hoping to raise some money to donate to various organizations who under the Trump/Pence regime are being threatened such as Planned Parenthood and/or LGBTQ charities. So if you're anti-Trump and looking for an alternative way to voice your opinion please give my DUMP TRUMP shop a look see. If you don't want to buy anything please feel free to share or link this post on whatever social media you like. The store link is below: cafepress.com/dumptrumpshop
A small collection of iPhone pics from 2 art shows over 3 consecutive days.
This year's PANCAKES & BOOZE show was at the M1-5 Lounge. The space was pretty big despite the sizeable stage up front,huge bar in the center and the seating booths that ran along one side of the room. Display space was created by connecting large pieces of dry wall that snaked around the room to form a maze of wall art! Attending a late night, downtown, indie art show in the middle of a work week was something i hadn't done in awhile and i never had my art in a show like this before so i wasn't sure what exactly to expect. What i got was 2 jam packed nights with artists creating art in various genres and mediums: street art, fine art and comic art drawn, sculpted and painted on paper, canvas and people. Body painters, cosplayers, goths, hipsters, zombies, stand up comedians, celebrities and deejays spinning awesome, old school hip-hop at a decibel level i am no longer comfortable with at my age. There were also free pancakes being grilled up all night but i didn't have any.
I actually took 2 days off of work for this because i knew there would be one busy day and two late nights involved. Wall hanging was between 12-5 pm. I got there by 2:30 pm but by then wall space was already tight. Thankfully my pieces weren't too big. I ended up with a bit of an odd spot but there was a bench along side the wall right in front of my art so i could sit, drink, draw and introduce myself to any passers by who stopped to take a look at my stuff. Thankfully there was also enough space to hang my bio,business cards and USA GIRL sticker display with my SPIDER-MAN vs BATMAN vs SHARKNADO art. I didn't sell anything on night one but lowered my prices on night two hoping not to schlep all my art back home in defeat. I ended up selling the RAMONES piece.
Over the two nights i chatted up a few cool people and saw a bunch of great art. Apologies for not being able to add artist credits to everyone but there were too many names for my feeble mind to keep track of. If you see your art here and it wasn't tagged leave your info in the comments.
I spent the first night of the show mostly drinking and hanging out but night two was spent mostly drinking and sitting and sketching and drinking some more. At the end of the night (Which for me was around 8 pm-The show ran to 2 am.) i collected my other two pieces and tacked my drunk sketch on the wall for whomever to have. I hope it found a good home.
The next day i was back in the office. I worked my 9 to 6 and was then off to VINYL FANTASY Records & Comics in Bushwick, Brooklyn to drink FREE beer and eat homemade cupcakes courtesy of Ilana and Joe, the lovely couple who own and operate the shop.
I did this WALKING DEAD poster ages ago. It depicts an imagined storyline of an adult, battle weary Carl and his sister Judith (aka Lil' Asskicker) on the road alone with the items of their fallen friends and family-Rick's hat, Michonne's sword and Daryl's bike. I thought I put enough clues in the art so that people would get it but in the end I got everything from sincere compliments to bewildered looks and I've never sold a single one of these posters since I printed 20 of them back in 2013. So i took them with me to VINYL FANTASY to give away because why the hell not. Maybe they still have some left. But there's only one way for you to find out....Visit VINYL FANTASY and go get'em!
VINYL FANTASY also has a few copies of my mini-comic MANBOY N' Friends! It's all the way in the back hiding in shame and slowly dying from loneliness. Front and center is my man Eli Neugeboren's comic SHARKARY VS TSUNAMI CRAB! He also did that badass BOWIE postcard.

Another new piece of cartoon/comic art completed for BEER & COOKIES Vol.2! It's been a long and laborious process but after several years of creating content, weeks of sleepless nights involving countless art corrections and 2 proof copies I think I'm finally ready to send off my finalized files to the book printer. But all that work was actually the easy part! The"labor of love" part. The hard part is trying to get rid of the books once you've got them all printed! To do that, I've been applying for comic con exhibitor tables again. I recently applied for a table at COMIC ARTS BROOKLYN 2016 and am hoping to hear back from them soon. I also applied for an Artist Alley Table at NEW YORK COMIC CON 2016 but got rejected and put on the waiting list. So...fingers crossed and whatever. Hope to see you on the comic convention scene again soon.
