“Today, in our field, there is so much talent and recognition that we are reaching a saturation point. An artist should no longer strive only for breathtaking craftsmanship; he should, instead, try to help us live better, either by dressing the wounds that are constantly being opened by society, or by offering solutions to get us out of the mess we’re in…But it’s going to be difficult and we have a lot of work to do.” - Jean 'Moebius' Giraud

'HALOGEN : HALO' (HOT PINK!)_update
Got back from the NYC show on Monday. I've got pictures and such (mostly sight-seeing stuff, less of the con) and I'll upload them as as soon as I'm able. For now, I'm just trying to recuperate, and get ready for the show in SF this coming weekend. No rest, I tell you.
So if you're going to be up in the NoCal area, drop by the Wondercon where I'll have the copies of my new sketchbook 'HALOGEN : HALO' available (as well as the last few copies of 'Beauty and the Beast'). Yeah, I know - I was supposed to have them for the east coast show, but even the best laid plans can get screwed up. The pictures above are what they look like. I'm only bringing about 50 copies with me (I'm trying to be optimistic by thinking I'll actually *sell* 50 copies, but a guy can hope, yeah?) because I'm trying to keep my baggage light. And with the jewel case and the box, it can start to get really heavy and cumbersome. I mean, look at the thing! It's like I've released my first music album or something! Haha!
I'll be there with Geoff Ong (writer and graphic artist extraordinaire) and Axel Ortiz (design and illustration guru); both from Studio BVS. Geoff is selling copies of his opus 'BACKSPACE: Race for the Tomorrow' and Axel is selling his sketchbooks and other wares - or he'll be making street tacos with spicy guacamole. I'm not sure which yet. Hee! Seriously folks, drop by the table, chat it up with us and get a sketch or commission. We'd love to meet you.
Okay, I'm off. Deadlines and blah, blah, blah. I'll post pictures when I get home next week.
