Going back to S.P.A.C.E.!

EVIL AINT EASY AT THE CON webWe are excited to return to the S.P.A.C.E. (Small Press and Alternative Comics Expo) convention in Columbus, Ohio, this year!  Twelve years ago, it was the first ever con that we tabled at.  It had a great energy to it… nothing but creators displaying their original (and sometimes hand-printed) comics.  We only had one comic printed at the time, but we still had fun.  This time, we’ll be bringing several comics, graphic novels, sketchbooks, novels, and prints.  If you’re anywhere in the area, we hope you can make it out!  (Admission is free!)  I’ll even be giving a presentation about teaching comics on Saturday.

Above is a brand new Evil Ain’t Easy comic I made for the convention program.  Our friend, Levi Hoffmeier, makes an appearance alongside his excellent Mayflower comic.  If you like high-quality sci-fi stories with beautifully rendered art, then you should really check it out!  Plus, he’s just a heck of a nice guy.

Clash of Champions 2017 Round Intro pages

You might remember that I sponsor a Cartoonist Club at the high school where I teach.  One of the things we have started doing every year is the Clash of Champions tournament (originally modeled on Sam Hiti’s awesome Fist-a-cuffs site).  Different students create 16 teams of combatants who are matched up and voted on during each week’s club meeting.  Before each vote, however, teams can show pages of “smack talk” comics they created the week before to show why their team should win.  This leads to crazy amounts of artistic competition and during last year’s competition the finished collection of their work totaled a whopping 350 pages!

My only contribution to that book is drawing these intro pages for each of the eight rounds.  This offers me a chance to draw all of the student’s awesome characters.  Our theme for this year’s book was “reality TV”, and that definitely gave us some good ideas for settings.  If you want to follow along and see more work from students of the club, check out their Facebook page!

It’s Planet Comicon time again this weekend!

TTS at PlanetComicon2018

Once again, we are really looking forward to Planet Comicon this Friday through Sunday!  If you are in the area, come by and check it out… you can find our table with the map above.  And be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter… we will be holding contests and giveaways on there all weekend!

We are premiering a new collection of the 33 hobo drawings I have worked on for a while (based on the list of hobo names by John Hodgman).  We are also offering a special sketch cover version of this book on which you can get a custom commission of yourself or another character as a hobo.

More hoboes!

HOBO- CZAR KINGweb

As some of you may remember, I’ve been having fun coming up with designs for some of the hoboes from John Hodgman‘s list of 800 hobo names in his book, The Areas of My Expertise.  Well, I’ve decided to print a collection of them, and I’ve been busy drawing a bunch of new ones the last few weeks.  I’ll be posting them on here every week leading up to Planet Comicon (Feb 16-18) in Kansas City when we will debut the book in print.  I pretty much just drew these to amuse myself, but hopefully some of you enjoy them, too!
