WELL I AM OFF TO EMERALD CITY COMIC CON! It’s gonna be a fantastic weekend- even though i did a very costly boneheaded travel blunder and booked my flight for last weekend and not this weekend. It cost $1400 to rebook for my crew and I. A learning lesson for sure, one that was quite […]

I am heading home from one of the most incredible shows on the west coast. I had a blast and let me tell you the adventure was worth it. I would hope if you are ever up in seattle you need to check out the show, which happens in march. I’ll do a full write […]

Trav’s Tidbits & Other Notes: There is something to be said about a good comicon. If the show is good, it can do re-jump start an artist in a very positive way. Phoenix Comicon was that show. It was a show I needed this year and one that has put an extra boost in my […]

I am traveling today to the ACE show in New Mexico. If you are in Albuquerque stop on by to the Albuquerque Comic Expo. As usual if you are in the area and want a FREE sketch stop on by. It’s been a busy week and there have been all sorts of projects old and […]

Ok almost done with all the kickstarter rewards, the sickness and the side projects. After this week we should be able to jump back into the world of bean full time. Thanks for the support and keep creating trav

Amazed by how some educators, teachers and people in general treat comics and comic creators. Like we are all lazy, non-talented story tellers, who produce work of nothing but pictures that has no value for kids and that our careers are basically a joke…. you are really misguided. Comics are not just about zombies and […]
