Sans a few edits here and there, Cleopatra in Space #2 is finished! And, I’m biased, but I think it looks great. The Thief and the Sword will be out in bookstores everywhere Spring 2015.
About to head out to ALA Vegas in just under an hour. Librarians! I am excited to meet you! I’ll be located in Artist Alley table 2139 Fri-Mon and signing at the Scholastic booth (#0430) Sat from 2-3. I’ll also have this Moby Dick piece in the auction if it looks like something you’d like to bid on.
Cleo books will be on hand as well as prints and even a few sketchbooks I decided to throw in at the last minute. This is my first ALA so I’m really excited, if also a bit apprehensive. Hoping for a great time!
One of my most favoritest times of the year is this weekend: HeroesCon! You’ll find me in Artist Alley table 1113- pretty much smack dab in the middle of Indy Island, which itself happens to be a smack dab in the middle of the entire convention floor. See the useful map below. (click here for the full floor)
If visting my table is just not enough, I’ll also be on this rad panel Saturday morning:
ALL AGES PANEL- A HEROESCON TRADITION! KIDS READ COMICS TOO!
Moderator JIMMY AQUINO (COMIC NEWS INSIDER) is joined by MIKE MAIHACK (Cleopatra in Space), CHRIS SCHWEIZER (the Crogan series), ANDY RUNTON (Owly), JEREMY WHITELY (My Little Pony), STEPAHNIE GLADDEN (Peanuts) and THOM ZAHLER (My Little Pony) to talk about their amazing comics. They’ll discuss why they went into this genre and if there is a difference between “kid’s comics” and “all-ages comics”.
ALSO, this Harley & Ivy watercolor piece will be on display at the annual art auction (Saturday night). Maybe you would like to bid on it or find someone to bid on it for you?
Plus, Cleo books, sketchbooks, gobs of prints, a restless two-year-old (not for sale), a gorgeous wife (also not for sale)…tons of great stuff. Might even try to do some watercolor sketching à la these. Hope to see some of you there!
It’s been Cleopatra in Space week on Flickering Myth- a great news site spotlighting the best in film, television, and comic entertainment. First, there was a bit of my insight on if CiS could ever be a movie. Next, a really nice review of Target Practice. And today it all culminates into a pretty extensive feature on CiS and my process working on the characters and books. As a bonus, the interview includes a few exclusive pages from Target Practice that give a look at how they transition from traditionally drawn to digitally colored. Definitely worth checking out!
