For those unaware, San Diego Comic-Con, one of the largest comic conventions in the country, dare I say the world, was a few weeks back. I was lucky enough to be set up in Artists' Alley, as I have for the past 6 or so years. Now, I know what you're thinking, when's the last time anyone got anything good in an alley, besides smack? But Artists' Alley is a great place at a comic con to meet all of the folks that create the comic books that they then turn into your favorite movies and video games. Where are we? In the alley.
This year, Artists' Alley was sponsored by deviantART, which is one of my favorite sites devoted to artists of all types. They had two large jumbotron screens showcasing our art, as well as a computer setup with Wacom tablets where we could do some live drawing. It was a pretty sweet setup.
So, anyway, I was on-hand in the Alley, promoting Zombie Dickheads, pressing the flesh (pun intended), doing sketches, and what-not, and I was approached by the fine folks at fearNET to talk about my new book. I like their site and network a whole lot, and they like me, so that's pretty great.
I also got a sweet mention (along with one silly-ass photo of me) from Scott De Las Casas over at boingboing! I'm very excited to spread the infected word about my favorite band of zombie hipsters. Anyone else wants to talk dickheads, feel free to drop me a line.
