Another MSU Comics Forum come and gone. And oh, what fun we had. The Comics Forum kicked off my 2015 appearance schedule, which continues to evolve, like a Pokemon. I lost a show (SPACE), and then added two more shows (Appleseed and GRASP), and then got SPACE back.

My table at the MSU Comics Forum.

 

I know. Keep up if you can. SPACE (the Small Press and Alternative Comics Expo) was originally scheduled for April, then it’s location shutdown. The new SPACE date is July, which I didn’t think would work for me, so I canceled.

Looking to replace SPACE, I got into the GRASP Comic Expo in Grand Rapids (June). Then, I also got into Appleseed Comic Con in Indiana (May). Life, as it is prone to do, threw a curveball and I ended up being able to attend the rescheduled SPACE. My table money had not been refunded yet (thankfully), which made it easy for me to jump back on board.

My 2015 schedule, so far:

*May 16 – May 17 – Fort Wayne, IN – Appleseed Comic Con

*May 22 – May 24 – Traverse City, MI – Cherry Capital Comic Con

*June 27 – June 28 – Grand Rapids, MI – GRASP Comic Expo

*July 18 – July 19 – Columbus, OH – SPACE (Small Press and Alternative Comics Expo)

Yes, I have shows on back to back weekends in May. Oh, boy.

In other news, I added a new cartoon print to my Society6 store.

As the blog post linked above says, I drew a pin-up for the Punching the Clock guys. Give it a look.

My convention schedule for 2015 continues to fill up. I’m officially heading back to the Cherry Capital Comic Con (C4) in Traverse City this May. My first visit last year went great and I’m excited to head back–plus, I’m happy for any excuse to head up to Northern (Lower) Michigan in May.

You can read my recap of last year’s C4 here.

In the mean time, I continue to prepare for this month’s MSU Comics Forum, which kicks off my 2015 convention season. See me on Sat. Feb. 21st at Michigan State University–free entry! I still have a lot of prep work before the Comics Forum, but it means less work for the shows in the following months.

Unless I sell out of everything at the MSU Comics Forum, but that would be a good problem.

February is here, which means the MSU Comics Forum is only a few weeks away. I’m still working on the rest of my convention schedule for 2015 too. It is a process: figuring out which shows I want to do or can afford to attend. Then, deciding if I stick with shows I’ve attended before, or branch out and try a new one.

We’ll see!

I got news over the weekend about the MSU Comics Forum. I am officially going back to artist alley again this year–making it my second year in a row at the MSU Comics Forum. I wrote about my first outing over on Clattertron (where I write all of my comic show recaps).

I learned a lot about attending comic shows in the past year since my first appearance at the MSU Comics Forum. I’m looking forward to my second year of comic shows, now that I have a better idea about what I am doing. I really had no idea what I was doing at the MSU Comics Forum last year, but I still did well.

I’m going to try to put together a new mini-comic collection (or two) before the MSU Comics Forum. Maybe, maybe, I’ll try to make a three-part show exclusive for the MSU Comics Forum (and the following shows). Working digitally now makes such a thing easier (I’m already working on comics for February).

Come see me and a bunch of other artists–including guest of honor Sergio Aragones in February. I’ll post more details closer to the show.
