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. You can also click the image on the left here to add Robotic Madness to your Comic Rocket pull list!
Come one come all!! This Saturday, the Titans of Cartoonitude, Jason May and Chris Gugliotti, are invading Comiconn in Trumbull, CT. We we will have original art, books, prints and delightful conversations! Guaranteed to delight people of all ages!*
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. If you like them please share them with friends and family. These are free comics we are creating for you folks. Make them last by making them popular! We'll see you there!!
Chris has a special comic which he launched on Facebook just now. You can only view it there at the moment. Click here to check it out. It will be available on www.playingdeadthecomic.com on Wednesday. But why wait?

I had an amazing time at New York Comic Con. I will fill in more info here later today. I just wanted to get my photos uploaded.
I'll be heading to Boston in the morning to sell my wares at the Boston Comic Convention. I will be sitting with Reckless Sidekick helping to promote their new book, Swass Adventures #2. I did the color work on this book. I will also be selling some robot art and comics if there is room at the table. Drop by, grab a copy of issue #2 and get it signed by me! Saturday only! Don't miss me!
I have been put on the list as one of the many talented artists that will be piling into Sarge's Comics on May 7, 2011. There will be many free comics jumping off the shelves as well as local comic book artists who would like to sell you some of their goodies. I will be offering up some FREE ROBOT SKETCHES to all the kids that attend. YES! FREE!! I will also be selling comics and original artwork.
I attended Free Comic Book day last year as a patron and was impressed by Sarge's performance. I was greeted by Darth Vadar and a slew of imperial stormtroopers, speeder bike piolets and more. There was a HUGE display of free comics and TONS of local artists. I was amazed at the sheer number of folks that came down to support Sarge's on such a momentous day. Please come down, bring a friend, bring the kids, bring a pile of money and support your local comic culture. It is indeed Free Comic Book day, but remember that your local comic shop is providing this day to get you jazzed up and get into reading. Reading is important kids so grab some goodies and have a good time!!
As Spring draws closer and the weather gets warm, I'm reminded that Free Comic Book Day is closing in! What is free comic book day you ask?? Well! It is exactly what it sounds like. Head on down to your local comic book shop and choose from a wide variety of free comics! AND! often, the comic shop owners talk a bunch of local artists to come down, do free sketches, sell books, meet and greet and all sorts of other fantastic things. Last year, my family and I were greeted by Darth Vader and a pile of his troopers. Good stuff for everyone. Stay tuned, I'm going to try and make an appearance at one of my local shops. Here's a link for you to follow and check if you shop is participating. I look forward to seeing fans of all ages at the nation wide event!
