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.

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. ;)

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.

What a thoroughly rewarding #MayThe4thBeWithYou at Free Comic Book Day at Jetpack Comics in Rochester, New Hampshire! Met some amazing new artists, reconnected with some beloved old colleagues, was dazzled by all the creative cosplay, and just generally soaked up the wonderful nerdy fan atmosphere. Thank you Ralph and your whole awesome crew for a delightful event --you guys put a lot into this event and it showed. (And having a full day of gorgeous spring weather certainly helped!)
I dearly hope you were all able to drop by your local comic book store and show them some love.

Audiophiles! Did you know today is #recordstoreday2019? Of course you did. So hie thee over to Village Vinyl & Hi-Fi at their brand new Brookline, Mass. location and check them out!
(And if I may humbly request, take a moment while you're there to look over their accumulated paintings of Frank Zappa, Fela Kuti, and the duo of Eric B. & Rakim.)

Been another difficult and challenging year, but... Percussa Resurgo my dears. Many comic con appearances planned and some long-delayed projects coming to fruition in 2019.
Much happiness and blessings upon all your houses this coming year.

RIP sir. It isn't possible to thank you enough.
