McEvoy and Crew, for you! :An Art Podcast

My dear friend, Patrick McEvoy, [artist of Starkweather, an illustrator for Marvel, plus much more!] and co.[ Jeremy McHugh and Jon Hodgson] have a podcast that I highly recommend! And it's all about art too!
From fantasy art, illustration, and comics! Marvel at these 3 professionals who have been in the business and have gone against the odds of the evil art world!! Well... not really evils... but art college does indeed suck! ;)

Their words-

"It's a podcast about art and the business of art, from the point of view of our Deadly Ninja Art Squad."

NYCC, Mega-Con, & The God Machine re-signed!!

So much information to get done, and my hands hurt! >_<

First conventions appearances-


New York Comic-con
Feb. 6th-8th

Today i got the official word that I will be attending New York Comic-con. No word on when i'll be at the booth, but I will be at the Archaia Studios Press booth [i think, I couldn't find Archaia listed this year, but our new mother company, Kunoichi Inc, is listed as booth #949. So I'm not sure if we'll be with them this year. More details on this booth situation when I get more information from Mark Smylie next week.

I'll be selling prints, giving out stickers, and totally unsure about sketches due to hands. [This will have to be decided at the convention].


Feb 27th - March 1st

I’ll be in Artist Alley; Burgundy 8A section. I'll be doing the same thing [prints/stickers/etc.] at Mega-con. The cool thing about Mega-con is it's in my home town, and i'm not going to freeze to death. :) Also, you'll certainly see my best friend Ana Aesthetic in all her costumed glory stop by from time to time, and also my amazing cousin, Lindsay Cibos and her partner in crime, Jared Hodges, will be in artist alley as well. Come out to say local true-believers [Nick started my Stan Lee kick there] and say hi. :) ~And also you strange souls who actually come to Mega-con from out of town. ^_~

Showroom Hours:
Friday – 1-7pm
Saturday – 10am-6pm
Sunday – 10am-5pm



If you'd like to donate some money to help me with my expenses for these conventions, it would be gladly appreciated. [i make nothing, literally.]

palpal account:
*note it's under my husband's account, so if you see a name of "James" in the invoice, you know why.

Thanks guys! I wish i could offer up cheap commissions right now, but i'm going to be busy for awhile. I'll try to open up something if i have the time, but no promises.


Last, but certainly not least-

The God Machine has been re-signed with Archaia Studios Press!!!

As of today, I finally got back my signed copy of my contract from the new boss man, PJ Bickett.
You're probably thinking, "What? Wasn't she signed with Archaia already?"

Answer to that is, yes I was signed. -But back in mid 2007 Archaia went through restructuring and was acquired by Kunoichi Inc. New contracts were issued to ALL talent published under Archaia, negotiations happened in length, and books were put on hold. Hence, "The God Machine" never came out for it's July/Aug/Fall debut. [You can read the restructuring further on Archaia's website.] Just this month, Archaia started releasing some of it's titles.

So, "The God Machine" is re-signed, now what?
Well, that's in my corner currently. Due to my carpal tunnel, i've held off on setting a new schedule for my comic to be released. So, as soon as I can figure out my limitations, and what I can do, the best possible release date is probably mid to late 2009.

I do apologize for all my silence, but really there were a lot of times where I was unsure of what was going to happen and didn't want to give false information until I was totally sure of the situation at hand.

Also to let you know, I'm very happy with my new contract with Archaia, and still look forward to having a long relationship with them.


So that's about it.

Also i have a new account [old actually] at blogger:
Come add me to your blog list!

Love you guys,

See you at the cons!!!

oh yeah.. this blog!

with the ability to watch other blogs, and the possibility that LJ will go away, I'm thinking of actually using this thing...maybe.

Working on a new web site, business cards,and "trying to get ready for NYCC 09'.

that is all for now.


p.s. The God Machine is still going to be published... just not sure when.
