I’ll be at Phoenix Comicon, May 23rd - 26th, Table #2214. Looking forward to my first trip to Arizona!
No pre-commissions, but I’ll be taking commissions at the show on a first come, first served basis, and I’ll have prints, totes, and thoughts on Star Trek for anyone who comes by! :)

So after all that the answer is probably yes, you need some new t-shirts.
Don’t forget that I’m giving some of these away. Click HERE to find out how! (Spoiler alert: it’s pretty simple.)

So many cool things going on and wonderful people.
Glyn Dillon was painting beautiful watercolours as autographs for lucky fans.
Samuel Hiti also did awesome ink drawings for people, including me!
The B9 Kingdom contained some serious talent in their showcase.
TCAF! I must get a table next year!
I hope to make it to TCAF one year, either as an exhibitor or just as a spectator. I hear nothing but great things about the show.
But I rebloged this mainly to point out the stack of original art for sale on Sam Hiti’s table for only $20-$60!!!!!
