What an Amazing Week!

July is off to an amazing start! Tomorrow (Friday the 13th!) I will be giving a lecture at the University of the Arts with my good friend and fellow artist Concetta Barbera. We will be discussing the art of collaborating, specifically how we worked together on my book “I Put the Can in Cancer: A Journey Through Pictures.” Here’s a link to the event page.
On that front my book will be making its debut at San Diego Comicon. The world’s largest comics and entertainment convention. I am already really stoked, I received a text today that Mike Mignola (creator of Hellboy) got his copy and said “the book looks beautiful!”
Lastly, I came home yesterday to find nine boxes from UPS on my front lawn. These contained pure comic goodness. The Philadelphia Cartoonist Society’s third anthology “City of Lotherly Brove” is 126 pages of comics and drawings inspired by Philadelphia. I’ll have more on that front in a bit, but here are a few photos to wet your whistle!

Below: Two pics from my buddies over at Applehead Factory from San Diego Comicon. You can find them and my book at Booth#4923.
