Autoptic 2015

Quick heads up that I’ll be an exhibitor at Autoptic 2015.

The expo features not only cartoonists and zinesters, but also poster artists, printmakers, musicians, illustrators, designers, and more – ranging from the exclusively local to the internationally acclaimed.

There will also be satellite music events that will coincide with the expo as well as a doubling down with their international partners (the French based ChiFouMi) for on-site zine and comics workshops, creating a dedicated kid’s area, hosting an art show, and much more.

Craig MacIntosh – Guest Penciller

Notice anything different regarding the Sally Forth strips for June 13-18?
They were pencilled by none other than former Sally Forth artist, Craig MacIntosh.

Craig was generous enough to help me out on a tight deadline and I couldn’t have been happier with the results. Here’s copies of MacIntosh’s pencils followed by my inks.

Sally Forth Drop Panels – April to June 2015

Comic Strips are formatted different ways for different size requirements. The “drop panel” is a panel or tier of the strip that can be omitted because of size restrictions without affecting the gag or storyline.

For example, Here’s the Sunday strip for April 5, 2015 with the drop panel…

Then without…

Sally.2015.04.05.small


And now without further ado, here’s the drop panels for
April 5, 2015 through June 28, 2015.

Q-Con XXII – Queen’s University Belfast

Queens University - Belfast, Ireland

Queen’s University Belfast

I recently had the opportunity to attend Q-Con XXII in Belfast, Ireland. It was held June 19-21 and is one of Ireland’s biggest gaming and anime conventions.

A special thanks to Aíne (red shirt) and Alianne (blue shirt) at registration who got me all set up when I got there.

On a side note, the neck lanyards they gave you on arrival were amazing. They contained all the information you needed and more – incredibly handy.

As mentioned, I went to Q-Con primarily for their Artist Alley, but there was plenty of great cosplay on hand as well.

As this was my very first time overseas, here’s hoping I can make it to more comic cons abroad in the near future…
