What is 86'd??

Photobucket

86'd - To get rid of, originally for killing someone. The phrase "80 miles out and 6 feet under" was reserved for someone who had to dig their own grave 80 miles from civilization and then get shot execution-style. All terms for 86'd originated from this, be it alcohol or eliminating.

Check back soon for more details.

Free State Wrap Up



Free State Comicon was last Saturday (9/10) in Lawrence, Kansas. It was quite a busy show. I had a great time there, hanging out with friends, buying comics, and doing sketches. I also sold a few copies of Death Fears the Bunny. After the show I received some positive feedback from more than one person who bought the book, Of course that motivated me to get to work on the sequel which I should have ready in time for next Con season. I am really surprised about how well this book has been received.

I want to say thanks to Craig Klotz for putting on such a quality show and for inviting me to be a part of it.

Thanks to Kirk for including me in your article. Go to www.Kansascitycomics.com for more coverage of Free State 2011 and for information about many area creators.

Some News

Hello,

I just wanted to take a minute to report a few things that have been happening lately.

First of all, the former planetsparky.com will be returning as planetsparky.net. At first, it will greatly resemble this page, but there should be some changes down the road. Please check the right side of this page to see some artwork, and below that you will find a link to a larger gallery that has even more pieces. In the next few weeks I will be updating the galleries with some new work.

Also I have been asked to be a guest and the Freestate Comicon this year. This is the con formerly known as Freecon, I was a guest last year and I really enjoyed the experience. I am looking forward to this show, and with some luck I will have a new book ready in time. If not, I have enough copies of older material to fill a table.

Here are some details about the show;

Rock and Comic-Con


Theater marquee.

The past Saturday (5/21) was Rock and Comic-Con at the Uptown Theater in KCMO. This show was just a lot of fun. Lots of interesting vendors, dealers, and creators were on hand. The show was set up with 3 separate con floors and 3 separate concert stages. I love the set up for this show and believe it has a great future. I really hope it is successful and continues for years to come.


Some dork outside the theater.

The attendees had great energy and they seemed genuinely interested in our work and were not afraid to interact with us. I can's say that for most comic cons that I have attended.

I sold quite a few books and sketches and heard quite a bit of positive feedback from folks who attended the show. Much to my surprise, folks seemed to really respond to Skwishee, the zombie goldfish bit character from Death Fears the Bunny. But there was a lot of positive response for Bunny, Thunderdawg, and Gentleman Jak.


Skishee.

I am still feeling the buzz from attending a great con and I am riding a creative high. It is time to back down to work on the next book or two on the slate. I have 2 more cons on the schedule for this year and I would like to have a new book for each of those.

Also, I will doing an interview for Comic Book Late Night with Captain Logan from Geekvolution. I assume we will be talking about my comics, my background and my reading habits as well as some other odds and ends. It should be a lot of fun. I will post a link here when the show comes out.

That is all for now, but check back soon for some pics from the con and possibly a strip or two, some more preview stuff from DFTB and other news.

Thanks for looking,

Oh $#!+%& Moment

Well tomorrow is the Rock and Comic-Con. I have the book ready to go, posters printed and ready to hang, I may even bring some old books if I can find them.

I am not satisfied with my effort on Death Fears the Bunny, but I am proud that I did it all myself. I do recognize that it was a great experience for me, and a fantastic learning experience. I fully expect my next work to be much better.

I did run the concept passed my BFF Doz and then my wife (Pam) edited the book for me. Other than that, it was a one man show.

Anyway, if you are in the KC area tomorrow try to swing by the Uptown Theater and pay us a visit. You might have a really good time.

I will wrap this up with another preview from the book. This is the oh shit moment from the story when Death comes face-to-face with the Bunny.
