Albuquerque Comic Expo 2012

Posted in Uncategorized on June 13, 2012 by TJ

Wow, just wow. ACE 2012 was awesome. I met so many great people- fans and colleagues alike. The work that some of these fans put into their costumes still amazes me. As I’ve said before, they really help to make these cons worthwhile. I had such a great time there, even though we had to briefly evacuate our hotel in the middle of the night because a fire broke out on the second floor. We were on the 16th floor. But it was okay though, I really needed the exercise.

Anyway, if you are one of those incredibly, interesting people I spoke with at ACE, please feel free to drop me a line on here. I’d love to hear from you!

Aside from STAKES, I’ve been working on some other fun projects that I hope to share more with you about over the next few months. In the meantime, here is a peak at the cover for one of those aforementioned projects. The awesomeness now burning your retinas is brought to you courtesy of artist extraordinaire, Jeff Herndon.

NEW YORK COMIC-CON ’11!

Posted in Now You Know on October 5, 2011 by TJ

Who has two thumbs and is going to the NYCC next week? Myself and thousands of other people!  I’ll be there with artist Felipe Echevarria promoting STAKES and just generally geekin’-out. Come see us in the Artist Alley if you’re fortunate enough to be able to attend. Hope to see you there!

Preview of STAKES!

I’m not going to apologize for how long it’s been since I posted anything because by now you should expect that from me:-) Here are some pages from STAKES #1. I hope you like them or hate them with a passion that’s so great that it could only be true love… like the type you experience from a dysfunctional relationship you’ve been trapped in for years.

New York Comic-Con 2010

Posted in Now You Know on November 27, 2010 by TJ

It’s November, so of course now is the perfect time to post about the New York Comic-Con which took place last month. Right? Riiiiiiiight.
Everyone always talks about how fantastic the San Diego Comic-Con is (which is true) but you never hear people speak of the New York Comic-Con with the same sort of enthusiasm. It’s like the younger brother whose accomplishments are often missed by his parents because they’re too busy fawning over his perfect sibling.

Let me say though that the New York Comic-Con deserves more than its share of high-fives. The Jacob K. Javits Center, which is where the NYCC was held, had somewhat of a modern/industrial look to it that seemed to fit the convention well. As cool as the SDCC is, I think almost anyone who has been to it would agree that the San Diego Convention Center could use a little updating; at the very least some carpet that doesn’t make you feel like you’ve traveled back in time to the 80s.

The space at the JKJ Center is smaller the San Diego Convention Center but it had everything you would expect from an event worthy of being called a “Comic-Con”. Stars? Check. Artist Alley? Check. More panels than you could possibly go to? Check? Vendors carrying hard find toys, comics, and other assorted goodies? Check. Stan “the Man” Lee? Check. Lots of people in costume? Check.

Even several of the displays and promos were the same ones I had seen at the SDCC. That’s to be expected though. You wouldn’t expect many fans to attend both conventions so why not reuse them. I mean if you haven’t seen it, then it is new to you, right? Now, I don’t want to give the impression that the NYCC was just made up of reheated leftovers from the SDCC because it wasn’t. The NYCC had its own exclusives just as the SDCC did. Neither had the exclusive on being awesome though. Yeah…how’d you like that? See what I just did there with “exclusive”? Wasn’t that clever? No?

Bottom line: I had a great time at the New York Comic-Con, as much as I did at the SDCC. Really. I mean it. You should plan to go next year…especially if you’re not able to score those tickets to the San Diego Comic-Con.

Hello again! I thought you might enjoy seeing the cover of STAKES. It’s the horror/adventure comic I mentioned in my previous post. I believe Felipe did a helluva good job on it. What do you think? By the way, between 1-5PM tomorrow Felipe and I will be promoting STAKES (as well as selling both his ANKH and SPEARWOMEN sketchbooks) at Heroes Only Comics in Cheyenne, Wyoming. I realize this is short notice, but that is the only type of notice I know how to give 🙂

What I’ve been up to

Posted in Now You Know on August 28, 2010 by TJ

I know it’s been awhile since I posted anything new. I’ve been CRAZY busy though. Allow me to take this opportunity to inform the four of you reading this (at least two of whom stumbled onto this page by accident) what is happening with my comic projects and what isn’t. First the bad news, GET LOST has been postponed for the time being. Felipe wants to do the pages over again because he wasn’t completely happy with the way the inking turned out. The good news is that we’re working hard on another comic together. This is a story I’ve been wanting to do for some time, so I’m very excited to see it taking shape. It is a horror/adventure comic involving various supernatural creatures, specifically vampires. These vampires don’t sparkle, although they do love people… like how one might love cheeseburgers and french fries. That is all I’m going to say about it for now. You’ll just have to wait until October.
