San Jose Supercon & Cartoon Art Museum

Here are some photos from Supercon this past weekend where I had a table in Artist's Alley:

I was able to meet the fantastic Howard Chaykin which really made my weekend!
He did this terrific Wonder Woman drawing for me:

Here is a shocking early 80's photo of myself (complete with Art Garfunkel afro) around 11 yrs old wearing a Howard Chaykin "American Flagg" t-shirt (I was a big fan, but Howard pointed out that I was probably too young to be reading it at the time):

Here are a couple of example commission drawings I was doing in my style (I was also doing cartoon caricatures in my style that went over well):

I didn’t get a chance before to share some exciting news: ‘Clumsy Love’ merchandise is now on sale at the Cartoon Art Museum Bookstore at 655 Mission Street in San Francisco, CA (The museum purchased 160 comic strip prints, 85 buttons, 85 magnets, and 85 keychains, so hopefully they will do well), I am proud to have my work for sale at one of my favorite museums!

Thanks again!
