Definitely Next Year ...

I'm so sorry that I couldn't make it to ComicCon this year. I was on vacation with my family and was planning to attend the Con, but an opportunity came up to spend more time with them, and I just couldn't pass. I was trying to make up as much time with my girls and thus extended our family trip. I'm so sorry I missed all the great folks at San Diego. I'm sure it was a blast as usual.

I hope everyone had a great time and I look forward to attending next year. In fact, I'm working on my much delayed book. I'll be posting some work as the months go by. Til then, stay happy and keep drawing and posting!

Comic_Con 2008

Wow, another year has gone by and it's time for Comic-Con !! "Bits & Pieces, Vol. 1 & 2" will be available at . These will be the last ashcan books I do. I know I mentioned it last year, but my hope is to do a bigger book in color next time with alot more stuff (more layouts then characters). I was a bit sidetracked with health issues and work deadllines. This year I and my booth buddies will be at a new location on the other side of the floor (near Stuart Ng).
