Pete's Mini Zine Fest in Brooklyn this Saturday!

Hello! Just a heads up that I will be at Pete's Mini Zine Fest in Brooklyn this Saturday August 24th from 2 pm to 7 pm. Pete's Candy Store (709 Lorimer St. between Frost and Richardson) is an awesome indoor/outdoor bar space in Williamsburg and the crowd and tablers are always laid back and nice. Lots of great people will have fun stuff there and you can drink beer while you walk around to check out everyone's work!

Here's a little preview of some of the comics I'll have this weekend. I'm currently sold out of Urban Nomad #3 and all but this issue of Counter Attack, but I'll have a mailing list sheet for anyone interested in getting an update when they're back in stock.

I reprinted my one page mini comic Money-Saving Freelance Tips on some pretty gold paper:

And here's a preview panel straight from my desk of Urban Nomad #4 which will debut at SPX in a few weeks! This story is about the first NYC hardcore show I went to in 2001.

Rob of Panel Patter wrote a nice spotlight of the work I'll have at SPX in a few weeks and will be posting a bunch of other great artists' work leading up to SPX. Hope to meet some of you in the coming weeks at one of these conventions!

Weeknight Rice and Beans

This week's recipe is for Weeknight Rice and Beans!

I don't know how many people visit this blog anymore or click through the links, but I'll add the text from the post anyway:

It looks like I'll be taking another short hiatus from updating Cooking Up Comics. I've run out of buffer and it takes 20 plus hours a week to draw and paint each comic which I don't have to spare at the moment. If you don't follow my Twitter, I'm also finishing up my comic Urban Nomad #4 for SPX in September. Here is a photo I took last week of an inked panel:

My finances are a bit dire right now and I'm scraping together funds to print Urban Nomad #4 and reprint Urban Nomad #3 in the next few weeks. I'm also hoping I won't have to cancel my appearance at MICE in Massachusetts later in September. So if you want to help out please consider ordering a comic or a Conan the Librarian print from my online store or hitting the donation button to PayPal any amount. I'll also be at Pete's Mini Zine Fest in Brooklyn on August 24th if you like to get your comics and zines in person!

Thanks for understanding about the hopefully short hiatus. Please check out the recipe index for plenty of recipes to make until I'm able to get back on top of updates.
