I'm happy to announce that my entry was accepted into Emerald City Comicon's Monsters and Dames art book. This year's entry also includes a cast of three compared to my last couple of entries.  I will also be tabling at the ECCC artists alley again for 2018, so if you plan on purchasing the art book, come see at Table J4...

Earlier this year, I was interviewed by Paul Hong, aka Dreamlander, who does these great video interview essays on people and passion. He was able to record some of footage while I was tabling at ECCC as well as provide some sneak peeks into my messy workspace at home. I'd say he did a smashing job, although, the guy in the...

Convention season is here, and it's time to open up pre-commission slots for Emerald City Comicon! I'll be tabling again in the Artists Alley at Table G-10, and this year, I have the pleasure of having the awesome Patrick Ballesteros as my neighbor, so be sure to check out his table too (that is if you can get through the crowds in...

I just submitted my piece for next year's Emerald City Comicon's "Monsters and Dames" art book benefitting Seattle Children's Hospital. I decided to make an update to the girl character from last year's piece. One of these days I'd like to do some stories with this character, for now her working title is the "Panda Courier" who transports baby pandas. In the meantime,...

Hey Seattle, it's that time of year again! Yup, it's time for the Emerald City Comicon! This one holds a special place in my heart as it was the first con that I ever attended, and it's the first one that I tabled at! This year I will be featuring in the Artists Alley again at Table K9, and I'm also pleased...

Here's a piece that I recently completed for Emerald City Comicon's "Monsters and Dames" art book. If my piece is selected, it will be part of an art book that will be sold at ECCC to benefit the Seattle Children's Hospital. I will hear back from the curators later this month if my piece is selected, so hopefully I will...

Hey everyone, sorry it's taken me a while to post this, but I finally recovered from the adrenaline drain from the last two comic cons. I've gotten back in rhythm, so it's business as usual. So where do I begin with ECCC and Fan Expo? First of all, I loved it.  I loved the energy of both events. I loved the people I met. I loved seeing the crazy cosplayers. I loved the all the activity happening around the table. Overall, I enjoyed every minute of my first con experience, and I'm hooked! Now let's get into the details.

Leading up to Emerald City Comicon, I decided to do another series of pandas titled "Super Pandas."  I tried to pick the most popular superheroes I could think of, but there were still a lot that I left out.  Maybe I'll revisit them one day, but for now, let's start with the X-Men, or should I say, X-Pandas!

Hey everyone, I still have room for preorder commissions for Emerald City Comicon and Fan Expo Vancouver.  I probably won't be able to finish that many by ECCC, but you can still sign up anyways since I'll be doing commissions at the con.  If you're visiting ECCC this weekend, please check me out at Table JJ-03 on the 6th floor.  Check the...

[UPDATE: Digital preorders are no longer open for ECCC and Fan Expo Vancouver.  I do accept digital commissions, but those will be completed and shipped after Easter weekend (4/3-4/5).] Howdy! I have a big announcement to make! I will have a table in the artist's alley at Emerald City Comicon this year!  My table will be JJ-03 on the 6th floor under "Punching Pandas."...
