Today you can find me, Dragon and Goat at Pocket Con, a free comics convention at the Chicago Cultural Center. Focusing on Creators of Colour and Indie Comics Artists the convention aims to empower young creators to bring new voices into the medium of comics and beyond.
I’ll be giving a workshop for Comics Brainstorming (so bring your 20-sided dice!) at 1.30pm on the 4th flr, so try to squeeze in if you can.
Tomorrow is the second day of the Graphic Novel Symposium at Moraine Valley Community College. Last year I gave a presentation, workshopping my Random Comics Generator 2.2 system and this year the speakers are Gene Ha and Anne Elizabeth Moore. I’ll have a table at the Library atrium from 9am-3pm for the mini-con with other comics peeps like David and Rene from Instant Press Comics. Hope to see you there!
We’re getting geared up for Wizard World Chicago tomorrow and hope to see you there! Dragon is furiously printing books and Goat is hammering buttons together, so be sure to stop by and see Adam at Artist Alley Table H5. This year Adam’ll be taking commissions for drawings of Dragon and Goat in whatever cosplay or scenario you want….well, within reason.
Today Dragon celebrates his 100th birthday- which in human years is something much less mature. You can be sure to get his latest book at Wizard World Chicago in a couple weeks, while Adam furiously works on the next book and juggles a baby.
We had a great weekend at Printer’s Row Lit Fest at the Third Coast Comics tent. Despite 90+ heat on Saturday, Sunday was cool and breezy. Thanks to all the fans (old and new) who came out and be sure to keep an eye on the ole D&G website for images from the next Dragon and Goat book due out next Spring!
Today’s weather should be completely perfect for the 2nd day of Printer’s Row Lit Fest in Downtown Chicago. Stop by my table at the Third Coast Comics tent for a selection of comics for kids and adults drawn and written by a Chicago artist. The tent is the 3rd in from the festival, so you can’t miss it!
My new book Beyond Paper Walls is finally available as well as a selection of Dragon and Goat books and my graphic novel The Panopticorn.
Today Beyond Paper Walls debuts at Printer’s Row Lit Fest in Chicago. It will be as hot as Kyoto, but the fest has lots of indoor events as well. I’ll be braving the heat at Dearborn and Harrison downtown (visit the Festival website for more info). I should be at the 3rd tent from the corner of Dearborn and Harrison going South, but look for the Third Coast Comics tent.
If you can’t make it to Printer’s Row the book is available for order from the Dragon and Goat Website, so check out our new shop: http://www.dragonandgoat.com/?product=beyond-paper-walls
This week I made the book stand for my new book Beyond Paper Walls. I laser cut it at Edgewater Workbench out of some birch plywood, but it got a little toasty under the laser. I decided to leave it as a nice wabi-sabi effect. Come check out the book this weekend at Printer’s Row Lit Fest in Chicago. Gettem’ while they’re hot!
This weekend I’ll be (finally!) debuting my newest comic book Beyond Paper Walls at Printer’s Row Lit Fest in Chicago June 11 & 12. The fest is at Dearborn and Harrison downtown (visit the Festival website for more info). I should be at the 3rd tent from the corner of Dearborn and Harrison going South, but look for the Third Coast Comics tent.
The comic essay explores the boundaries between an Imagined and Real Japan through an autobiographical recounting of me and my wife hiking up Fushimi Inari Mountain in Kyoto. If you can’t make it to Printer’s Row the book is available for order from the Dragon and Goat Website, so check out our new shop: http://www.dragonandgoat.com/?product=beyond-paper-walls or if you’re in Chicago you’ll be able to get a copy next week at the Book Cellar and some other area bookstores as I drop off more copies.
