Maria Bamford is a brilliantly weird stand up comic and voice over artist for Adventure Time and many other popular animated shows. Looking forward to seeing her live as part of the New York Comedy Festival this November. I did my best to capture the zaniness that is she in this Digital Cartoon Illustration.

I'm on YouTube (LINK: http://youtu.be/yvcTIpVOzXc) being interviewed by comedian and Pronto Comics artist Pat Reilly (www.me-comic.tumblr.com) on Ep.5 of "NEXT TO THE BACK ISSUES", a web show about comics that's shot in the back of Carmine Street Comics (facebook.com/carminestreetcomics)...Next To The Back Issues! Some topics of our conversation include: the ups and downs of being an artist alley exhibitor, the dreaded "Con Flu" and the notorious "Fanboy Funk." Check it Out!

Saw Guardians of the Galaxy recently and even with all the hype behind it, it did not disappoint. Director James Gunn has created something special for Comic Book Geeks and Film Nerds alike. The cast works great together, the jokes are all on point, the action sequences pack a lot of punching power without being overwhelming and at its core the film has a lot of heart and makes you care about these misfit characters. But most of all it's just FUN because GOTG never really takes itself that seriously but doesn't go so far as to become campy or satirize the "comic book film" genre. In a system where every movie studio is looking to make a "dark" hero film GOTG is a film that balances everything just right.

The Gotham Super Collectors Show at The Holiday Inn in Manhattan was this past weekend and sadly this show was far from super. I'm not going to complain too much though seeing as how i got my table for free thanks to my friends over at Pronto Comics and Carmine Street Comics who were nice enough to invite me to share in the ample table space that they were given for the show. The turn out was small, not too many people were buying but i made a few bucks and i got some drawing done. Above is a monster sketch i did on the the hotel's cafe menu flyer. Below is a cartoon sketch of WRATH, a member of The THUNDER KITTENS, A Female Fantasy Wrestling Entertainment League. She sat in front of our table with her "Vince McMahon" and some dude in a Punisher Lucahdor mask who I'm assuming was their "Inter-Gender Wrestling Andy Kaufman". Wrath and Punisher performed a few impressive wrestling moves to entertain the crowd. To entertain myself i decided to sketch Wrath.
She seemed to dig it when I gave the sketch to her!
This upcoming Saturday, July 26 i'll be participating in The Cotton Candy Machine's Roebling Street Fair in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. For more info about the fair and The Cotton Candy Machine Art Gallery visit www.thecottoncandymachine.com.
