Here’s part of the presentation I gave last Saturday at Stumptown Comics Fest:

My fellow cartoonist John Linton Roberson brought this one to my attention. It comes from a comic called Flashpoint: Legion of Doom #1, published by DC in 2011. (Superhero comics, like animated cartoons, are a group effort. The credited artists for this panel are Rodney Buchemi, José Marzan, Jr. and Artur Fujita.)

Letters To Steve

Another of my far-flung correspondents has sent me a batch of decorated envelopes. I met Steven Abrams when he was an intern at my first publisher, Eclipse Comics. Later Steve was my assistant on Welcome To the Zone, and now he works for the Jimmy Kimmel Live show in Los Angeles.

The Stumptown That Was

It’s not Stumptown till I file my report. This year I decided not to bring my trusty Palm Pilot and instead left it to others to record the event in photos; the official pool of snaps can be found on the Stumptown home page.

Stumptown Preview #1: Perspective Grids

The Stumptown Comics Festival approaches. This year’s event will be held at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland on April 16th and 17th. As usual I will be attending, signing books and selling artwork at my own table, but this year I will also be doing a presentation, a demonstration of drawing in perspective using the pre-existing grids from the DVD which comes with my new book Extreme Perspective!
