I know it's been a while since I've updated my blog, but I've been busy with freelance, projects and my personal life. The good news is I seem to have plenty of freelance work which unfortunately means that my personal projects, like Robotic Madness, have been put off. I've been doing piles of work for LEGO Club magazine, so if you get it in the mail you've probably seen my comic art in there as well as on www.lego.com. I've also been doing some random freelance work and small projects here and there for other people. I've been doing a lot of design work for a surf shop in RI called "Drift Surf." It's located on Main St. in Wakefield and it's a great locally owned shop with fantastic customer service. Here is some photography and design work I've done for them recently.
I've been spending a lot of time at www.jimmycakes.com and Tumblr recently. If you have a Tumblr account and would like to see my artwork, my surfing, or my craftsmanship pop up on your feed every now and then, please come visit. As an incentive, of sorts, I've started posting my new followers up on my robot's computer monitor. I got this idea from my pal and fellow Titan of Cartoonitude, Chris Gugliotti. He does something very similar with a chalk board.
Wow! What a great weekend! Comiconn was a success and I look forward to doing it next year. I also added my web comic to Comic Rocket so you all can read it easier! You're welcome!! Drop by www.jimmycakes.com to read more blogs and see photos of Comiconn. You can also read Robotic Madness there.

Just a few more days left. While you're waiting for this fabulous even to arrive please drop by my web comic Robotic Madness and Chris' web comic Playing Dead.

*I can't promise we'll delight, but it sounds real good!
My wife got me an amazing set of tiny sketchpads as an early birthday gift while she was in Boston. I'm using these pads to flesh out some pages for my web comic Robotic Madness. If you look really hard you can see a penciled page of next weeks Robotic Madness. But my F1.8 on my Nikon is creating a depth of field SO fierce, that you probably can't see much. I look forward to seeing my website visits skyrocket this week! Take care!
Is it a man that becomes a whale or a whale that becomes a man. No on knows for sure.
This book is a must have for any comic fan who likes quirky, awesome, action packed stories with inter-weaved prose and letters that magically tie each of these short stories together.
I have provided a four page story and a Were Whale shanty that resides on the back cover. There are two larger stories by two wonderful artists and friends, Chris Gugliotti and Jason Snair. Our friend and artist John Burns was kind enough to spin yarns and create letters from sailors and other characters to weave each of the three stories together. Readers are rewarded with some amazing sketches and concept art from the artists.
Pick it up in hard cover, soft cover or digital. Your choice!
