Appearing at Capicon in VA

Just dropping a quick note that i will be attending a comic show in Tysons Corner, VA this Sunday. Looking forward to it. This is my second show, so I don't have as many butterflies as i did for heroes Con in Charlotte. I haven't been to this show before so I am very curious to see what it is like.

I will post afterwards to tell how it went. If you read this and plan on attending stop by and say hi... there might be a prize.

see ya.

Moving Right Along

As of last night I have finished the pencils and lettering for 21 pages of Intermezzzo's fourth issue. I have been spending a lot of time to work consistently. My wife, and reluctant editor, Wendy has been very forgiving with me and i am very grateful for that.

Something that sprung to mind; about the lettering...
yes my lettering style is an intentional choice. I break the speech bubbles, angle the words, do not follow precise lines and do it all by hand. All of it is a choice I made to try and give my characters "their voice" and make it a part of the page's art and not just placed over the top of it. I have had several people think I draw the speech bubbles and just run out of room. Actually I draw the letters and then draw the bubble around it. I know it does not have the professional look comic readers are used to, but I hope it is something that can be unique about Intermezzo and that their voices come through to you as clearly as they do to me.

Look for me to show up at comic conventions in the North Carolina area to introduce people to Intermezzo. If you know of one coming up drop me an e-mail.
