There have been numerous obstacles standing between me and my artwork this past year. I've been working on guitars, other art projects for other people, family, friends and most recently a Fiat I acquired from a relative.
The Fiat is exciting because for some reason it looks just like one of my robots. I find inspiration for my robots everywhere. From car parts, car design to hand dryers in men's rooms.
My goal in the next few days is to clean up my studio, take a short break from restoring my car and work on coloring Hero Envy Swass Adventures and get cracking on a robot coloring book that I hope to launch digitally the weekend of New York Comic Con. The nice thing about a digital launch is that I can work on the up to the day before the convention. The book will be downloadable and printable. This will be the first book I release that I allow printing. What good is a coloring book if you can't color it?
Every year I hang out with Joe Caramagna at New York Comic Con and every year someone puts up a sign or a banner behind us and no one really stops at the table for us. This year I created a banner for Joe so people will drop by and ask what he does. Joe has lettered for Marvel for a long time and odds are you've seen his name in almost every characters book at some point. You may have also read the stories he's written for Superman, Iron Man and many others. This year at New York, look for his banner and stop and say hello. Also look for my banner. You can't miss it.
I don't know if this is real or if some super fan is messing with us, but I think I need a pair of these if they come out. I'm afraid of the price tag. But, if these shoes are moderately priced (which I doubt) you may see me wearing a pair leisurely around my yard or possibly to a convention.
