It’s been an exciting past couple of weekends. First of all I want to personally THANK each and every one of you who donated to help my daughter participate in this year’s Junior National Young Leaders Conference in Washington DC. She will be making the trip during her birthday in July and you all helped make it possible for her.
The next thing was the Superman Celebration. Oh my gosh! This was definitely an honor. I met so many wonderful people and got to hang out with my friends who also happen to be talented cartoonists. If you’ve never been to Metropolis, Illinois for the Superman Celebration, it is quite the experience! There is literally something for everyone. I always say it’s a street fair mixed with a comic convention, mixed with a costume contest mixed with a family reunion. I will never forget my time there and hope I can make it again next year. Thanks to my new friends and fans for stopping by my table and sharing a few laughs. Metropolis knows how to party!
Last, but not least was this year’s Anime Blues Con in my hometown, Memphis. I was lucky enough to help man the table for the Mid South Cartoonists Association. Even though my cartoons aren’t anywhere near anime or manga, I still managed to sell some books and prints and (hopefully) created some new fans. Being able to talk to young aspiring artists about our group and inviting them to join us was reward enough. Lots of talented people in this town.
There are some other big things planned for the rest of the year, and this was just the start. Thank you all so much for reading, I’m happy to finally meet some of you face to face and hope to see more of you in the months and years to come.
