skinny pillows & geeks

So i started a daily-ish webcomic called skinny pillows, i put it up over on Tapastic, which is a kinda new site that is trying to become the youtube of webcomics. it's nice, there's a ton of really good comics on there, so i'm glad that they let me in to post my stuff alongside all these other cool folks. There's all those buttons to like it and share it and everything, it's basically a diary comic, so sometimes it's funny and sometimes it's weird and sometimes it's me fighting with with people. Let me know what y'all think.

also over the weekend was the third annual N.E. geek expo in jefferson, ohio. i went and made a mini-comic to highlight my recent undertaking of a daily-ish webcomic. here's a bad pic from my phone of it



i also made a stamp to stamp on thing with ink, so all my comix get this from now on and i'm pretty happy with it. carved it from a big pink eraser, this is that.

Upcoming Comix Shows!



So i've been handing out these two flyers i made for upcoming shows. I will have a table at each and have a bunch of my comics and art available and probably be giving out free sketches on stickers. But enough about me right

The N.E. Geek Expo is in Jefferson, Ohio on November 2nd and welcomes all flavors of geek, and promises all sorts of fun things, cosplay, gaming, comics, possibly sushi, vikings and contests. Go check their page here

While Genghis Con is in Cleveland on December 1st and is more like an indie comix kinda vibe with lots of cartoonists and artists bringing comics and books you won't generally find on the rack along with handmade books, small press stuff, silk-screened art prints, and a nice selection of regular old tights and capes stuff available Also be sure to look for the gritty horror comics from cleveland native John G (his stuff is awesome u need know!) Other Cleveland area luminaries are usually in attendance like Derf, Gary Dumm and Mike Gustovich, it's well worth your time to visit. Go check out their site HERE

And for those of you who didn't make it to the 4th episode of Lawn Con in Youngstown, on Chris Yambars frontyard, I'll be posting the digital version of my comic that is an interview with him, sometime soon for your viewing pleasure. For now, go look at googlemaps and make plans to come to the these shows, they're awesome fun time for everyone!

Lawn Con!



So this saturday october 5th i'll be in youngstown, ohio to celebrate Yambar day, otherwise known as Lawn Con (tm) a free comic show put on by Chris Yambar, writer of Simpsons comics, Spongebob comics, Popeye stuff, and all around awesome artist. I did a interview with him last year and have translated it into mini-comics form and will have plenty of copies for everyone who wants to know the inner workings of the mind of Yambar. Along with a bunch of my other comics I've printed along with a box of cool comics from assorted publishers and art and stuff. There's also fire-breathers and music and more comics and lots of awesomeness.

The address if you would like to come is: Chris Yambar's House 23 South Hartford Avenue Youngstown, Ohio 44509 USA
and the show is from 11 am to 4 pm. If you can't make the show go check out his paintings and comics on his site YAMBAR.COM

Hope to see ya there, keep reading comix kids!

Signifiers #2 review

I want to get back to doing reviews on the blog, but rather than just new comics I try I'm going to stick to comics I have that you might not and that are really great. So with that let me tell you about the signifiers.

m.r. neno is a devoted fan of jack kirby and his art really shows the influence of studying the kings work. Tho this issue, the second seems filled with lots of talking and only a few big action spots. But never fear! You only need enter his online world where the first issue is available free to read to see the mad action that flows out of his pen. So go read that if you haven't, it introduces all the characters like Thelma who is half dog & half woman, Splash the guitarist star of the comic, Tiffany who has four eyes and speaks broken english, some motorcycle guys and a heat seeking dwarf. There's also an interview with Tom Scioli and some more comics at the end. Neno has been making his comic world for a few years now and it really feels like it. Everything has got that real quality, like you could go visit the places in his books and be confused meeting the folks who live there. Issue three is promised to be action filled and i'm eagerly awaiting its arrival. oh yeah, Neno writes draws and letters the book all himself and he also gets good grades from Paul Pope, so don't take my word for it, the kid has got skillz! go read it at www.nenoworld.com

Adventure Time Fan Fic

Below is the short comic that me and my daughter made! Piper told me what words to write and helped with layout and placement in the panels. She is the most math and awesome 5 year old ever! We're printing this out and sending it to school for her friends to all color. Just a one page folded in half kinda deal. Hope y'all dig it!
