GOOD OL' CHARLIE BROWN

THROWBACK THURSDAY 4/3/14


Ink and Brush on Bristol.


Done probably about the late 90's or early 00's. Was into the Peter Chung animated series Aeon Flux and the works of Egon Schiele at the time so i was into drawing distorted, exaggerated bodies in motion. She's holding what's supposed to be a glowstick and sort of dancing. I was heavy into the Jungle/Drum & Bass club and music scene back then so she sort of represents that.

AUTISM AWARENESS DAY

Below is the banner header i created for my sister, Lisa Quinones-Fontanez, for her blog Autism Wonderland dot com with it's mission statement. 

When her son Norrin was diagnosed with autism she started the blog as a way to document this new chapter in her life and in doing so to also bring Autism Awareness to the forefront of today's society. In the few years that the blog has been up she has done just that and has helped numerous families to not feel alone in their journey raising their own autistic children. The blog has since grown immensely in popularity and has been on several best parenting blog lists.

Although Lisa and Norrin still have many difficult challenges to face together the journey of raising her son is no longer the overwhelmingly daunting task she once thought it was, which is why Autism Wonderland  is now the website A Typical Familia at:

www.atypicalfamilia.com

A Typical Familia is where she now continues to document the many joys and struggles of raising her Typical Kid.

A purposefully blurred photo of tonight's "VS." show gallery wall so as not to show off too many spoilers on opening night. Nevertheless, that didn't stop me from recognizing my contribution to the show.

So, if you live in or around the Pasadena area.....i just made your evening plans for you.

BEST BOOZE NEWS EVER!


 A few weeks ago i had the pleasure of meeting comic book artist Bob Fingerman, the creator,writer and artist of MINIMUM WAGE at a book signing held at Forbidden Planet in downtown NYC to celebrate the relaunching of his popular underground series about life, love and low paying jobs in The Big Apple.

He graciously signed my copy on Minimum Wage #1 and my well worn, well read hardcover edition of BEG THE QUESTION, the complete collection of the first series run of MINIMUM WAGE. I told him that it was the book that got my wife into comics which he was very glad to hear. We chatted about comics and the industry very briefly, i thanked him for signing my books, told him that i was a comic book creator and that i'd like to give him a copy of my comic BEER & COOKIES and if he could possibly maybe even contact me back to let me know what he thought of it i'd really appreciate it.

He eventually did contact me back and told me that he was enjoying the book and even laughed out loud a few times! I responded back with a lot of Thank Yous and Exclamation Points and decided to roll the dice and ask him for a blurb for my website.

A couple of weeks later he responded back with a great statement in regards to my work which i am truly thankful to Mr. Fingerman for.

If you'd like to order a copy of BEER & COOKIES here's the link:
