Fan Expo 2009 Photo Parade

First I'm way--way behind with this, but with that said I do have a new blog that I'm working on about my move to Hong Kong. Yes, that's right, I've moved to Hong Kong. So this was the last con I attended. I got to see old friends and made new ones, which is always a great thing. Some notable surprises were a fan from Germany that actually found me in the craziness that all conventions are. He was there with his lovely wife. Turns out he also owned a comic shop there. I was floored to hear that my little book made it out there. For those who were wondering who was that man that kept on hugging me throughout the convention, it was the man, Templeton. He made a promise to hug me until I left and he's a man of his word. My family came for the first time to this event and the kids had a blast. They enjoyed the cosplay and general fanfare. My oldest made me take her to the Tron lightcycle display and asked to watch the Green Lantern animated film First Flight. I've taught her well (heh). All right, on with the photo parade.

You, Me and Zombie

Children books come in all shapes and sizes. They are fairy tales, adventures tales and stories with zombies. What!? ZOMBIES?

Agnes Garbowska has written and illustrated a wonderful zombie book for kids called You, Me and Zombie. I had a sneak peek as it was coming together while I was helping with edits. "What a terrific idea," is all I had running in my head as I read the story and looked at the art. I got a copy of it with an awesome sketch of my kids as zombies (thanks Agnes!). It is now one of my kids must read books.

Fan Appreciation 2009 Photo Parade

Jon Bryans (NGuard)

Jessie Lam (Neozoic). The webcomic we're working on is amazing. Can't wait to show everyone.

Marcio Takara showing love for...if you can't tell I can't help you.

The mighty Sam Agro showing how Nick Fury is the man, like himself.

Attila Adorjany

Logan Lubera

Andrew Jackson. No really it's him without makeup. Scary, I know.

Andrew Jackson. Look him up on IMDB. Really, give it a click. He was at the con to give support to Jon's NGuard becoming a animated series, not to mention..er...just keep reading.

The Agnes Garbowska

My table that I shared with Jessie Lam (Neozoic)

Most interesting duo ever.


So I've been hinting at something that I'm excited about (but officially can't talk about just yet), which is what the following pertains to. For the keen people out there, and I know all of you are, do "read" the last photo carefully.

This is Jon Bryans (NGuard) scribbling something on paper.

This is me scribbling on the same paper.

This is Jessie Lam (Neozoic) scribbling on the same paper too. Weird huh?

On Sunday, I signed a contract to co-write a comic based on a very terrific property that I can't mention yet *cough* look below *cough*. We've also partnered up to develop new properties and help existing ones reach the comic book market.

Now, isn't that an interesting photo.

That's all folks. I'll be at Fan Expo next for the con thing. I should be at Paradise Comics for Free Comic Book Day. Not 100% yet, but I'll let you know as usual.

Thanks again to everyone for making a terrific convention. You people are great!

After Con Blahs

I know I promised to share an interesting development from the convention today, but posting photos didn't workout with my phone.

The good news is that I did take photos, which will be up by tomorrow night, if not earlier. Then you can see what I'm talking about.

So what did I do there?

I made it a point to spend more time away from the table and found the experience a lot more fulfilling; that is I wanted to get to know people I've met in the past and was happy that I did. I also got to meet new people, making new friends along the way.

I signed a contract with Jon Bryans (NGuard) to join him in a new venture called Story Factory. It's a platform for us to co-write projects with. That was part of the announcement news. Look at the photos for the other half.

I'm humbled that there are people who like what I do and took the time to let me know. If I didn't say it to you personally, let me take this time to express my deepest thank you. You may think it's insignificant to let someone know how you feel about their craft, but it surely does mean a lot, especially to me.

Thanks to everyone for making this convention a memorable one!


Photos will come.

The web comic that I showed a sneak peek of that I'm working on with Jessie Lam (Neozoic) will be coming soon here and on Jessie Lam's blog. I'll be going to my love for fantasy for this story.

Thanks again for everyone that came out.

Toronto Comicon: Fan Appreciation This Weekend

You can read about the information of the convention in my last post.

There's some really interesting news I will share with people there and of course here when it happens. In fact, I've set up my phone so I can post it live when it does, so for those who can't make it, you'll hear it first as well.

I'll see if I can toss in some photos as well.

See you there if you will be there.
