Back Home & Awake: Another NYCC in the Books

So nice to sleep in my own bed with my own lady. Got home at nearly 1am and stayed up laying in bed, talking and catching up with her for a couple of hours. Just got up and broke my rule of “I only like breakfast food right when I wake up” to reheat some pizza, make some coffee and now catch up on some internet.

NYCC was very positive for me. I didn’t get to do or talk to everything and everyone I wanted but I think that’s the case with every con. I did see some great stuff, talk to old and new friends and make contacts, as well as do some things that were a little outside my comfort zone. That wasn’t perfect but it made me go “Okay, I can do this” and helped affirm for me that I’m on the right track with what I’m trying to do.

The anthology that I have a 12-page comic story in that’s perpetually been “ready to go” for most of the year was almost going to debut on Kickstarter this past weekend but it didn’t happen. A bummer, but in a week and a half’s time (thereabouts) it’ll be going up. More details to follow, but here’s a promo image we’ve got for it:

There’s a lot of great stories in there, and I’ll be putting up some previews of mine (with amazing art Fernando Cano) shortly. Long-time readers of this will remember seeing some preview art for it already, so I guess you are guys are the lucky ones for sticking with me. ;)

In the meantime I’m going to unpack, physically and mentally and get my ass back to work. It’s going to be an interesting Fall.
