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.
Well, the book that I drew for Scholastic is finally out in stores and online. The title of the book is LEGO City Save This Christmas. The book came out pretty good. I had a lot of fun working on it. I'm hoping I will be on some more projects with Scholastic soon. Only time will tell. I'm going to try and have a few copies at New York Comic Con as well as Rhode Island Comic Con. I will probably only be at New York for Saturday and Sunday this year. Please drop by Artist Alley and say hello. I'll be haning out with my pals, Joe Caramagna, Andrew Edge and Dennis Budd.
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. You can also click the image on the left here to add Robotic Madness to your Comic Rocket pull list!
I recently did the interior illustrations for a Scholastic book called, LEGO City Save This Christmas. It's a fun little story for young readers that follows a bunch of goofy LEGO Crooks through LEGO City as they try and take all the presents from the local LEGO people. The book will be available on September 1st according to Amazon. Here's the listing. Feel free to bring it to any of the conventions I am attending. I'd be happy to sign the book. See the home page for my calendar of appearances. Thanks!

For those of you in the New England area, make sure you drop by Boston Comic Con this weekend and support your local talent and the local comics scene. I'd hate to see the show disappear. Last year it was PACKED and sold out. The lines were long, so get there early. I may attend on Saturday. If I do attend I will be sitting with the folks from Hero Envy in Artist Alley. Drop by and say hello to Keith and John and be sure to pick up their latest comic. Colored by ME! Here is some more info about the show. Enjoy!
