More things lining up for April next year.

Well as updates go this is a major one for Black Box Comix. Having tables at the Stumptown Comics Fest is and has been a major part of how and why Black Box Comix is going. Ever since Scott Allie of Dark Horse had told me about it back in 2005 in Eugene I had wanted to break out of the Eugene area and into something bigger. Well PDX is hella bigger than Eugene will ever be and it definitely is a much more engaging crowd.
By next month I should receive confirmation that we'll be in it- a nice kind of way to end the year as far as I am concerned.
The color work for Johnny Vega #3 is progressing quite nicely so far. I am hoping to have work completed by end of the next
month. Again another nice way of ending the year.
The personal debate about how the collected work of Pandora's Garage I think is now at end but I still have the layout to work on after I get the two projects out of the way for Stumptown. and if you're currious about the show check out place.

And if you're bored check these places:

Another book off to the races!

Yeah, I had managed to get another black and white sent off to the printers day before yesterday but it won't be delivered until today. I'll have to wait about a week before I know if it made it or not but since my big show doesn't happen until April of next year, I shouldn't have to wait to long.
Next on the list of books to do is the third color Johnny Vega book and then the mini which I have already posted about.
My only other task is make a rotating slideshow of the comic book work with picked out images of the books and burn them so people could just drop in a CD instead of picking up a business card. I think the way things are going right now I think that would be the best way to go about selling and promoting the books at a show.
A lot of these new artists and writers are pretty technically hip with all the developments that are coming down the pike for making comics.
I just hope to lead by example and make a name for myself and my company.

I felt that since we were coming up on the two week issue that I would post another image and icon for the Stumptown Mini that I have been developing at my editors insistence. I think that she had a good idea when she came up with it, so here to you, Rowan.
The main difference that anyone would see is that it is pen and ink - in the rough. I have meet, and so have you, a few artist that pick up a ball point pen and illustrate these incredible pictures thought they may be just on a notebook piece of paper.
I figured that if I could do it with a little help from my mac, anyone could do it.
I’ll be posting some of those here pretty soon as well.
