CBI3 Round 1 Submission

Well, the 1st set of script was from Aspen… and it was a 3 pager of Fathom in action. Well, I was really depressed after not getting nominated… I almost didn’t participate in the “Play at Home” contest. At the last minute with regained hope, I drew up 3 pages of what I could. Here is what thread on Comic Book Resources forum with my submissions. You can follow up on some reactions and critics from the other Play-at-Homers.

Finally, an Update!

Well, I know that this may come as a shock to those of you returning to my site… but I’ve managed to finally launch an updated site. I’ve had some complaints from some visitors that the old Flash-based interface caused problems. Hopefully, the new design with the updated, separate Gallery is easier to navigate for most people.

So, here’s goes nothing, folks. Let’s hear it. Is the re-design a keeper?

Why did I do this to myself?

Oh, well… I guess I should have known. With over 190+ entries, I was NOT one of the ten (nor top 12 or so) selected to participate on CBI3. Kinda depressed… thought I really had some real chance this year. Gosh, this sucks… kinda sucks the will out of wanting to continue drawing. 🙁 I guess I should have listened to Kevin Grevioux’s advice to just stay away from the contest. Shucks!

CGS Coloring Contest

Well, my fellow CGS artists were having a grand-ol’-time with coloring contest of various sorts… I don’t know what came over me… but I thought I’d create some ripples on their calm pond… I threw out a challenge for them to color my submission to the CGS300 special edition comic book. For those unfamiliar with the submission, here’s the preview:
CGS300 Zombie Fest

Comic Book Idol 3?

Well, the first one I missed the cutoff for nominations. The second, I was never considered for the nomination. I’m almost torn whether I need to try it again for the third contest much like the comic artist contest version of the TV’s American Idol. However, the free trip to New York Comic Con and a chance to get to meet some editors and pros alike was worth the effort, I’d figure… Here goes nothing.

We have arrived!

Despite the unattentive shuttle service at express parking and crazy lines at airport security, Brad, Frank and I have mde the flight. Smooth flight with a few quirks of people grabbing whatever seats they want. It's sunny and around 70 degrees here at 11AM. After the rental car, we're gonna kill about an hour or two before picking up Austin.

CGS Episode 300, here I come!

Okay. In a mad rush, I gathered together the things I would need for the historical recording of Comic Geek Speak’s Episode 300. I plan on traveling somewhat light… only carrying supplies I would need to do pencils and inks. This is the first time in a long time I’m traveling WITHOUT my laptop. With each moment, I’m getting more nervous about not having my laptop with me. I am also forgoing my high-end digital camera… Man, what a slacker!

Anyways, here’s a preview of one essential I cannot forget:
