Black Lives Matter, folks. That's just...all there is to it. If that mere phrase challenges you, or in some way makes you feel uncomfortable or attacked, then that's on you. Not our brothers and sisters of color.
Do the work.

An old post, but no less relevant this day, I think.

Came out of my shell (so to speak) with some Marvel fanart sketchcards, to at least commemorate the Free Comic Book Day That Wasn't:

I'm sure this may seem a difficult-to-envision, far-off future just now, but: mark your calendars for this coming October for what will be the triumphant premiere of The Upper Valley Comic Expo. Yes my dears, a long-neglected New England region is finally getting its own show. Get your tickets and come join us in the glorious nerdiness!
It goes without saying that I will be there, along with a cavalcade of amazing artists, authors, cosplayers, vendors... and a host of other surprises, too!

May everyone who reads this be headed into a healthy and drama-free weekend, with full pantries and with encouraging check-ins from everyone you love. Look out for one another my dears. #InThisTogether

There's a half-dozen projects I really should be focusing on right now, but today it just seemed important that I draw this.
Look after one another, my friends. Be smart; don't be "people."

In exactly 2 months it will be the Holiest of Holy Days, FREE COMIC BOOK DAY! Check with your local comic book store to see what they're going to be up to on Saturday, May 2!
Myself, I'll be again hanging out with the wonderful folks of Jetpack Comics in Rochester, NH. Mark your calendars and bring the whole family for a day of nerdy indulgence!

Dear lord I was just all over the place, subject-wise, in 2019. Productive year: got another graphic novel published, some rewarding commission work with some delightful new customers, an all-out #inktober, and some awesome comic cons and in-store appearances.
Many blessings upon you all in 2020 my dears. "May we get what we want, may we get what we need, but may we never get what we deserve!" -clink-

We're headed into a very Star Wars holiday season, that much is certain. (Aren't you proud of me for not referring to it as a Star Wars holiday special?) On that subject: want to own a Peter Vinton, Jr. original? Go make a bid and support the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Our friend Zombie Leader has been doing so much for this cause over the years --it's very humbling to watch him work at comic cons.
May The Force Be With Us All in 2020. We're going to need it.

What're y'all doing this coming Saturday night (November 9)? Why not tune in to Sci-Fi Saturday Night, where, against all sanity and reason, they have invited me to be a guest? Listen in while I talk all things American Revolution-ey with Les and the gang. Some hilarity will ensue, some deep philosophizing may (or may not) happen, but if nothing else there will be an abundance of nerdy weirdness. Come give 'em a listen!

See you November 16-17 in Framingham, MA for SuperMegaFest! I do anticipate this to be my last show of the season, and you certainly all know my illustrative style by now, so send me your commission orders sooner than later! More event information here.
Copies of THE MONITOR'S GUILD, BOOKS I and II will of course also be on hand. Looking forward to wrapping up con season (and fulfilling your nerdy holiday shopping needs, mayhap?) in style.

#Inktober2019 continues apace. Challenging and yet rewarding (as was certainly the intent all along!):
In the meantime: see you all this coming Saturday at The Million Year Picnic in Harvard Square! Book-signing begins at 12:00 noon.
October 10, 2019
Just as a heads-up: #Inktober2019 is in full swing. If an artist or illustrator in your life is participating, do try to go easy on them. Make sure they get plenty of sunlight and vodka, and don't take their shorter-than-usual tempers too personally --they're under a bit of pressure. ;)

No matter where the Disney-Sony shenanigans take us, just remember: we'll always have the Night Monkey.

At last: it's here. Pick up your copy and then remember to pour one out for the signers of the Declaration of Independence, and the monumental act of courage that they showed on this day.
