Calling all mead makers! (Yeah, quite a bunch of you magicians do follow this page; I've checked!) You were aware that we are now just days away from this year's Mazer Cup International, yes? Of course you did. Just checking. It takes place in conjunction with the 2017 AMMA Mead Conference and its tireless and gifted organizer, Vicky Rowe of GotMead.com fame. (I have long been quietly proud to be associated with this indispensible mead-making resource by originally drawing and designing its beloved logo.) See you all in Broomfield, CO on March 8 for the conference, and then for the Mazer Cup International on March 9-11!

The happiest of birthdays to one of my greatest-ever encouragers: someone who, though she may not necessarily know it, helped me kick aside some lingering self-doubts and urge me to "don't wait; just start." Advice I would cheerfully pass on to any artist. Many Happy Returns Holly Young of River Spirit Designs! Seriously, do yourself a favor and check out her amazingly gorgeous jewelry.

Happy Bill of Rights Day my friends. And a big 'ol thank you to Patrick Henry, George Mason, Richard Henry Lee, George Clinton, and all the rest of you cranky, suspicious, Antifederalist rascals. If it weren't for your efforts we wouldn't have a Bill of Rights. We owe you guys.

I've currently got seventeen projects in various stages of completion (trust me, I counted them), and yet for some reason it was very important that I draw this. Another of my 1940's-style comic book cover recreations, but with a couple of twists. First, this Captain America cover from "1947," while still including Cap's compelling and brilliant "Civil War" dialogue by J. Michael Straczynski (Amazing Spider-Man no. 537), instead takes a cue from this summer's movie adaptation and plays to the film's suggestion that it was in fact Peggy Carter who first gave voice to Mark Twain's famous sentiment. Hope you like it!

Get your Halloween on with a unique collection of macabre tales! Treat yourself to the twisted yet amazing My Peculiar Family, a series of creepy short stories tying together a mysterious collection of long-forgetten tintypes found in an attic. Assembled by Les Rosenthal and Brian & Derrick Belanger of Sci-Fi Saturday Night fame, with a foreword by Tracy Hickman, this collection of stories by fourteen brilliant storytellers (and featuring art by Karen Gosselin, myself, and a spooky cover by Sara Richard) will bring your Halloween to a perfect conclusion!

In just one week I'll be basking in the wonderfulness that is my home comic book convention, Granite State Comic Con! As autumn's beauty begins to take us, come on up to Manchester and surround yourself with some of New England's top writers, artists, creators, along with hordes of Imperial stormtroopers, Starfleet officers of every era (Happy 50th anniversary, you guys), superheroes of every flavour, renegade Time Lords with questionable dress sense, Optimus Prime, Perfect Tommy of the Hong Kong Cavaliers, and the immortal Duncan MacLeod himself!

Headed out to Vermont Comic Con this weekend in Burlington, VT --my first-ever comic con in the state that gave birth to me! (Yes folks, I am a native of the Green Mountain state by the only criteria that truly counts.) Commissions are being taken; drop by my table and let's talk shop! Don't miss your chance to also meet illustration legends like Ken Kelly, Mark McKenna, and Vermont native Cliff Rathburn! Bring the little ones; there'll be plenty of things for them to do thanks to the talent and effort of Emily Drouin of KidsCon New England fame. Should be a magical time.

Come join me on my pulp magazine "field trip!" (Links will take you to my professional Facebook page.) We'll do a little bit of behind-the-scenes work, and see what goes into re-creating the age-old art of the Pulp Comic Magazine Cover.
In just about 3 weeks, I'll be appearing at MASSive Comic Con on June 25-26 in Worcester, Mass --my only Massachusetts con appearance for the year 2016. So swing on by my table and talk nerdiness with me! We can kick around all things Marvel, all things DC, all things indie, and all things MONITOR'S GUILD. And I'll (of course) draw you something superheroic! See you there!
