well this stupid little blog that acts as my web site because im too busy to make one, has reached 1000 hits. i think thats pretty cool, even though most of those hits are prob from me, checking to see the hit counter go up

a little piece i did today for my ex girl-friend whom is a teacher that had a little student of hers die recently. the school is having a memorial for her tomorrow & this will the cover for her class' book of memories. its the least i could do & i hope that it brings a smile to Shamima.

finally about the con

hellololo friends, the busy season has struck again & i'm just feeling the start of it, thanks cuppa. So i've forced myself to spare a few moments to update my blog that no one visits.

the toronto comic con was last weekend & it was a joy. i picked up my beloved nyc/equatorian friend, lucio alberto ruiz from the airport on the thursday night to start the weekend off right. then shan & i ended up having our table right behind him, the joy continued. Lots of feedback, sold a bunch of books & paintings & drawings & zombies. great to see/meet people & experience being on the other side of the table at one of these things. both of us were & still are pumped up to do another, so we're real excited about going to calgary in the new year via an invite from kendrex, the man with the coolest name & organizer of the calgary comic con.

so enough talking, here's some pics of our weekend, oh & we both still have a few copies of our books/paintings, want one/four?



settin up

so purty

ready for the crowds

solo sketch jam

the great enrico http://enricocasarosa.com/wordpress.1/ put together a little thing called the "sketchcrawl" http://www.sketchcrawl.com/forum/ Well back on july 1st it was the 10th world wide, so i tried to put one together here, but alas it was the long weekend & for some reason toronto sketchers SUCK! so by myself it was, drawings that i liked:

started out at the ROM which is under construction, so kick ass, chains hanging off the metal beams, looks like melting metal. place is going to be really great when its finished, exciting to see some nice architecture around town for once




then moved on to 'Gato Nero', a great italian bar to watch the football match with some pals.
