Post SDCC and Foxtails, Inc. Launched and more!

So, this last week has been an interesting one.

San Diego Comic-Con
Last week I was able to actually make it to Comic-Con International: San Diego, or SDCC for the normal folks. It had been 4 years since my last trip to SDCC, so it was nice to be there for a change. I was only there for a day, but the short time I was there was good. Got a few good panels in and was able to do some decent exhibit hall trolling time in. When I go to cons, I try to find at least one new indie comic to pick up. This con's was The Adventures of Aero-Girl by DeWayne Feenstra (writer), Axur Eneas (artist), Juan Pablo Riebeling (colorist) and Adam Wollet (letterer). You can learn more on their Kickstarter page. It's a fun all-ages superhero story with a bit of a twist. I full recommend it to anyone that likes quirky superhero stuff.

After the con, I've also been pondering trying to find some places to exhibit and try to get some artstuff for sale. I'd love to get an Artists Alley table at SDCC, but I know that may be a tough thing to accomplish. But I'm looking into options and seeing if there's a good place to get something like that going.

Foxtails, Inc. Launch
In other news, it's taken a bit to get things in a good place, but I finally pushed forward and launched my new webcomic, Foxtails, Inc. I decided that I need to do this as a way to force myself to get things going. So I'm hoping that I can keep myself going and get one a week out. I'm really bad at falling into Slackerland, so I'm hoping to avoid that. I'm shooting for Tuesday release for Foxtails, Inc. pages

Beyond Neverwonder
I'm currently playing around with redrawing the beginning portions of the Neverwonder story and get them formatted for a print release. Whether or not that happens remains to be seen, but that's where the current thought is. I'll have more when I get closer to figuring that out.

Store
A while back, I had some run-ins with silliness provided by the Digital Millennium Copyright Act... that durned DMCA. Someone out there claimed to have the copyright on a piece that I did like 20 years ago. When t hat happened, I suspended all the stuff I had for sale online. I think I've gotten past all that and I've begun to put some things back up on Society6. I'm waiting to see if someone silly tries to pull the same thing again with something else, but for now, I'm running cautiously. That said, you can see all the stuff that's currently available on my Society6 page at society6.com/tekitsune. Tees, mugs, clocks, phone cases, prints... there's a wide variety of things. Check them out and buy something!


I think that's all for now. Things are moving. Let's keep them moving onward and upward! Thanks for reading!

One Day of SDCC

For the first time in a few years, I'm actually going to make it to Comic-Con in San Diego. I wasn't planning on going, like has happened for the last few years, but things changed rather last minute-ish and plans changed.

For a bit of background, my younger brother Jeff passed away back in 2000, on July 25th. He had a blood clot that got to his heart. He was only 17 years old at the time and was a rather active person, so it was a very sudden thing. In the years that followed, my parent's usually tried to get out of the house and go somewhere away on "Jeff's Day" so they could put all that out of their minds. That's typically been the week of Comic-Con, so we'd take the crew out to Anaheim and spend a few days at Disneyland. (My family LOOOOVES Disneyland, if you haven't noticed over the years.) I'd come with and I would usually spent a day or two down in San Diego.

The last few years, my mom had decided to just work her way through Jeff's Day and try to keep herself busy at work so she could keep the days low key and distracted with the busy work, which meant that my trip to WonderCon was my convention trip for the year. Well, this year, she decided that she didn't want to be around for the 25th. So, we have a Disneyland trip planned for the weekend and I get to go back to SDCC for a day.

I'll be flying into San Diego on Thursday morning and will spend most of the day at the convention. It will be good to get back to SDCC, since it's been a few years. I'm not sure if I'll be ready for the crazy insanity that I'm sure it's become since my LAST trip out there in 2010, but I'm going to try to hit more panels like I've been doing at WonderCon. And I'm going to see if I can get some folks to give me some thoughts on my comic coloring portfolio. Not sure if that's going to work with the truncated time that I'll be there (my flight arrives at 9:30am and I have a train back to Anaheim at 4:00pm...), but we'll see what happens.

Next year, I'm hoping to be doing more stuff that I may look at a booth at either WonderCon of SDCC. We'll see.

I need a break, no matter what happens. Been crazy around here as of late. For all that will be there, I'll see you in San Diego on Thursday!

Post-Con Time

So, WonderCon for 2014 has finally come to a close. Got back to the grind yesterday after a long, tiring, but good convention. It was good to see and hear all the great ideas and tips for things, great to hear some of my favorite creators talk about things and to learn more about some new folks. (Kelly Sue DeConnick! Katie Cook! Marv Wolfman! Alex Sinclair! Nei Ruffino! Edgar Delgado! All the guys from Aspen Comics!) Some excellent artwork was also procured. (Including a limited edition print of the cover to Aspen Comics' Bubblegun #2 by the ever excellent J. Scott Campbell!) Overall, it was a great weekend. I don't think I did as much networking as I did last year, but that is what it is.

Hopefully I can get things moving forward in the world of artstuffs too. I did do something last night that I hadn't done for a while. I sat down and actually did some sketching for some ideas on a re-imaging of the part of Beyond Neverwonder that I've already posted to the site. And miraculously, it looked pretty decent. I guess it happens some times. I just hope I can keep myself going. It's soooooo easy to be lazy, especially after tiring days at your "day job."

At some point, I'd love to find someone that is looking for a colorist too so that I can get my hands dirty on some sequential stuff. I've got lots of cover-ish type stuff and pin up-ish things, but having an actual story to do again (The last time I did sequential coloring was Elfquest in 2001... 13 years!), that would be excellent! I know little to no one will be looking here, but if anyone knows about anyone that's looking for a colorist that would like my style, I'm open to any suggestions. I even work cheap! (My other artistic friends tell me that I put the "free" in freelance.) Just a thought there too. Yeah.
