UK tour begins this weekend

I'm really excited to head to England later this week for the Thought Bubble Comics Festival in Leeds, as well as signings in Manchester and York, plus a slew of London events. The Orbital Comics event on November 30 will be followed by a signing and times may change on that, so stay tuned with Orbital for details.

Star Wars Weekend!

This weekend is Star Wars Reads Day, and Saturday I'll be in New York signing at the Scholastic Bookstore. Friday night, though, I'll be in Brooklyn at The Scott Eder Gallery for the opening of the Vader's Little Princess and Jedi Academy art show. If you can't make it to New York, though, you can still go to ebay and bid on this signed Star Wars books package to support Reading With Pictures.

San Diego Comic-Con!

Next week is San Diego Comic-Con, and as usual you'll find me at the Top Shelf booth (#1721) most of the time. Below is my schedule of where you'll find me when, except for one late addition - Sunday morning from 10am to 11am, I'll be at the Kids: Comics In Action panel in Room 7AB.

Right now, Chicago's Busy Beaver Button Co. is running their latest button design contest - this month's contest theme is comics, and I'll be judging. The winning design prize package includes a signed copy of Vader's little princess. Meanwhile, for much less work you can enter a contest with Chronicle Books to win printer's prooofs from Vader's little princess or the Darth Vader and son postcard book. Finally, for fun I posted some of my favorite Star Wars items (and the stories behind them) on the Collectedit! website. One more thing - head over to the Chronicle Books blog for a look at the process behind a page from Vader's little princess.

Vader's little princess

Just a few weeks now before Vader's little princess is out, just in time for C2E2, where I'll be taking time out from my busy schedule to sign copies. Look for me at the Top Shelf booth from 12 to 4 on Friday, 2 to 6 on Saturday, and Sunday 12 to 3. I'll be participating on two panels Saturday - at 12:45PM and at 7PM. If you can make it to either of those, you'll have a chance to snag a special advance reader's copy of another Star Wars book I have coming out later this year...

One of the illustrations I did recently was for the film adaptation to Tao Lin's book Shoplifting From American Apparel. These are a couple sketches that we didn't end up using. If you're in Chicago and you want to see the final poster, you should head to next week's local screening at The Logan Theatre. The first twenty people at the screening will actually get a free poster, and if you buy two tickets you can get a copy of the DVD. They still need to sell more tickets to make the screening happen, so get your tickets soon...

Your Move, Raincloud

I spent a few years working on album art for Your Move, Raincloud. Technically I worked on a lot of other things while working on this, but with the album finally coming out we had to stop coming up with new ideas. Here's a few of the many design sketches I drew up, along with a peak at the physical album package as it's being printed an assembled.
