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!
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!
It's not often an illustrator gets to just enjoy his work and create a fun image. When I get invited to events or my friends bands play, I always throw something together fast and furiously and email it to them in hopes they will use it for the event. Today I threw together a quick halloween image collage for a friends party. I don't know if they will use it, but I enjoyed making it. Enjoy!
