New Experiences and New Friends

Con Sketches from Supanova and Oz ComicCon. Also a picture with Stephanie Nadolny the voice of Goku.
Well, my convention tour is over (I still love the sound of that). Both Supanova Sydney and Oz Comic-Con Melbourne were extremely successful. So successful in fact that I am currently sold out of High School Romance #1 in print. Don't worry though if you still want to read High School Romance #1 you can still purchase it digitally from Graphicly for a measly $1.99. (SHAMELESS PLUG)
I never expected to have such a good experience having a table at a con this early in my "comic book career". People were stopping by the table asking for sketches, buying copies of both my artbook and High School Romance, and just stopping by to have a chat. It was so much fun! There is actually nothing cooler than people buying a copy of your comic and coming back the next day to let you know how much they enjoyed reading it.

I also made some really awesome new friends. These guys are probably some of the coolest people you will ever meet in the Aussie comics community. They go by the name Space Pyrates but in real life they are called Mathew Hoddy and Caitlin Major. I met them at the end of Supanova Sydney and they were good enough to let me team up with them for Oz Comic-Con to create an unstoppable dream team of sexiness. To prove how cool these guys are they release their comic, also called "Space Pyrates" online for free as a webcomic! The comic is hilarious so if you are a fan of fun you gotta go check it out!

Here is to new friends!

I'll be back on the road doing another convention tour towards the end of the year. I am super amped to get up and do it all over again. Having a table at one of these conventions and meeting awesome people just reaffirms to me that this is what I want to be doing for the rest of my life. I will be going to Armageddon Melbourne and Supanova Brisbane to round off what my convention appearances for the rest of the year. Watch out for new chapters for High School Romance and maybe a guest appearance in Space Pyrates.

Anyways, till next time!

PS: I met Stan Lee :O
