The Stiff: Chapter 4: Page 146

Happy Beginning of the Week, everyone! I’m pleased to be able to announce that I’m going to be attending Sakuracon from April 18-20 in the Washington Convention Center. I’ll be at booth SP-19 in the small press area.

In addition to hanging out, signing posters and scribbling down RPG ideas, I’ll also be running two games of my card/drawing game MANGAKA in the tabletop RPG room! Here’s my schedule:

Saturday, April 19, 2-4 pm (RPG room)
Sunday, April 20, 12-2 pm (RPG room)
Draw the world’s greatest comics…in five minutes at a time! Like a cross between Pictionary, Telestrations and Magic: The Gathering, Mangaka a fast-paced card game for artists and storytellers where every round involves drawing cards and drawing comics. Choose from over 150 Themes, from Mecha to Cooking, to determine the subject of your manga! Use Fortune cards to change the game’s rules and thwart your foes! Avoid Impairments, such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Alcoholism and Poor Hygiene! Compete with your fellow players to tell the greatest manga stories imaginable, even if you can’t even draw a stick figure! Pens, paper and cards provided.

If you’re going to be in the Seattle area, I hope you can make it! Thanks for all your support! And coming soon: zombie portraits!

NEXT UPDATE: Wednesday!

The Sleep of Reason: The Emperor Awakes

In just a few weeks The Sleep of Reason, a comics horror anthology I contributed to, will go to press. I really enjoyed working on this book and was happy to be invited to participate by my old Girlamatic comrade-in-arms, C. Spike Trotman. My own piece is a 16-page story titled “The Emperor Awakes”: here is the first page.

I can’t wait to see the finished anthology! We were instructed to basically do the most disturbing comics we could do I did my best. I’ll keep posting information about it here as it comes out.

In other news: if you’re interested in Lovecraft and horror cinema, please check out the Kickstarter for the HP Lovecraft Film Festival and CthulhuCon in Los Angeles this year (September 27-29)! You can get T-shirts and posters with my artwork, including the Film Festival poster I drew (which you can check out behind the link). The Kickstarter ends in just two weeks, so please check it out! And of course I’ll be a guest at the Festival too.
