We are really looking forward to year two of this new Kansas City Comicon this Friday through Sunday! We had a great time last year, and people really seemed to enjoy it. If you are in the area, come by and check it out… you can find our table with the map above.
We are especially excited to finally debut the new Rook City Vol. 1 at this show! This book collects all three issues of the series, along with 25 pages of bonus content (including a new prologue and epilogue not featured on the webcomic). We’re pretty proud of how it turned out.
Elton will also be premiering the third book in his Middlemen series, The Brother’s War, at this show. He will also have copies of his other four books available, too. As usual, we will have prints for sale and will be drawing commissions all weekend. We hope to see you there!

Well, we are back from yet another Planet Comicon. This show continues to grow every year… it’s definitely become one of the best in the Midwest. As always, we are grateful for everyone who stopped by and checked out our work! Here are some of the commissions I drew over the weekend…

Convention season is upon us once again… it’s time for Planet Comicon in Kansas City this weekend! As usual we will be setup and drawing commissions the whole time. We will also be premiering some new books and prints at the show, including…
That’s right… ROOK CITY #3 is finally complete! This 36 page comic features two new stories. The first spotlights the Vlad Squad and Toby Fox as they attempt to figure out who is responsible for the “vampire attacks” on their campus. The second one delves deeper into the relationship between Rook City’s resident superhero, the Captain, and his arch-enemy, Dark Star.
Elton is has finished a new anthology of fantasy short stories… RANDOM FANTASIES. This anthology covers a wide variety of fantasy types, from modern day wizards hiding in plain sight to sword and sorcery tales. Its characters include an old wine merchant who has given up on the world, a young girl trapped in a city under siege, a wizard who discovered that magic is not as random as it seems and the luckiest man alive. Check it out right now on Amazon!
Then we also have two new prints available this year…
We hope to see many of you at the show once again!

It’s that time again… time to get some free comics and sketches! We will once again be hosted by the fine fellows at Hurley’s Heroes Comics & Games. Aaron Kuder (Superman, Spider-Man, Amory Wars, Green Lantern) and Jeremy Haun (The Beauty, Civil War: Captain America/Iron Man, Batman) will also be there sketching and selling comics. The Cartoonist Club that I sponsor at Joplin High School will also be there, debuting three new books (totaling 800 pages) that they have worked hard on this year. We will be doing free sketches, as usual, and will have prints and comics for sale (including the Duel collection). We hope you can swing by!

I recently needed to create a new self portrait as part of an art show. So it gave me a good excuse to finally update my avatars/profile pictures after several years. This was rotoscoped digitally over a photo I took a while back. It was fun to experiment with different textures as I digitally painted over it.

A couple months ago, we continued our occasional tradition of drawing some of the characters from John Hodgman’s list of 700 Hobo Names at our local Sketch Night. This time we decided to draw on torn paper bags for extra authenticity. If you want to see some of the past hobos we have drawn, here you go.
