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.
