HorrorHound Weekend Cinncinati UPDATE

Just got back from the great state of Ohio, (I avoided the onslaught of snow and traveled when it was safe) and I've got some photos and stuff from the weekend. Two things I'll take away from this show; 1) it was fun and I wish the snowstorm had not pretty much killed the show as far as attendance goes on Sunday, 2) The Walking Dead is way more popular than even I thought. Waiting four hours to see Norman Reedus is "comic fan mania" people, it's not attractive. Friday & Saturday were really insane as far as the amount of people there to get autographs. I don't know or want to speculate on how/why certain things went down or if those things affected the vendor area. But I really think that there were more people there for autographs/photos with their favorite actors than were interested in buying pictures that I drew of monsters. That being said I had a good show and saw some familiar faces and met some new people too. I'll make plans to join everybody in Indy this September. In the downtime on Sunday I managed to get about six interviews that you can here on the Gutter Trash podcast in the coming months. Speaking of Podcasts I am also featured in a quick interview/discussion about this past weekends show with my tablemate and host of Gutter Trash Eric Shonborn. Check my links for a way to hear everything. The only thing I wish we discussed was the amount of times we heard "Bad to the Bone" over by the "Christine" exhibit. Rent the movie and you'll understand. And lastly all my prints will be on my ETSY page by the end of this week (March 29th) so check it out! -Later,

March Updates

Meteorological spring is here and we shall all rejoice with sacrifices to celebrate the death and rebirth of Attis, the god of vegetation. On a lighter note, this month starts off my biggest convention season yet with six shows planned (four confirmed, and two hotels booked). I have been working overtime like Randy Bachman to get all the stuff ready for the first show this month...Horrorhound Cincinnati! I've got new prints, framed art and of course sketch cards that I am still working on as we speak. I now take CREDIT CARDS at my table so there is no excuse for not buying anything. I will be joined by my main man Eric Shonborn at the table this year so please come by and and say hello and stroke our fragile arty egos. Also, I'll be staring up my "One question" interview segment for the Guttertrash podcasting network at this show so if you check out the Horrorhound site you'll see what weirdos I can choose from. My Etsy store is being filled up with stuff this month so if you can't make the shows you can still buy for the spring season sacrifices. My new prints are limited runs of local sport team logos that I've made too look like the undead or infected. I've posted a few for you to check out and they will be in the store by the end of this month. If my train is on time I'll get to work by nine on the newest installment of the STAR mini comic (yea more classic rock references jammed in there for no reason) so maybe it will be done by April other wise I'll let it ride. See you next month with wacky photos from this show and a preview of the C2E2 show, until then... later,
