Just a quick status report post!
My productivity has really fallen behind as Ive been dealing with an assortment of health issues. Everything from a tear in my wrist, to hospitalization for bacterial colitis, and non-related throat/ear infectiond that are currently in relapses mode. If you want read more about sad stuff like that you can check out the post over on my livejournal: [link]
But yeah basically an assault on my body that has forced me to loose 2 weeks of work, say no to a lot of people, and cancel several fun events or comic related appearances. As someone who loves to multi-task and take on more than he can handle
its been very hard to just relax and take it easy when deadlines are looming!
But Im still planning a billion things for the New York Comic Con and am thankful to have awesome friends and co-workers keeping things moving forward.
The Comics Bakery, my collective of artist friends will have a booth on the main floor, and will be the biggest (most expensive) set up weve ever assembled. Hopefully people will check it out our tasty selection of comics, t-shirts and other swag.
Nickelodeon will be at the NYCC in full force with a ton of panels, a killer booth, costumed characters, creator signings etc. etc. I will make a separate post soon about all the Avatar and Nick Magazine goodness. But please know that the Friday Avatar Fandom Panel will be especially awesome, thanks to the powers of Alison Wilgus. No Mike and Bryan wont be at the one, but Rufftoon will! And well be spotlighting so many great fan works that your head might explode with glee.
Speaking of fandoms, I got to see a great documentary called We Are Wizards that everyone who has ever been a fan of anything should go see! But its an indy film so you gotta spread the word so it can play in your town!
OTHER SIDE NOTE:
There's a funny comic about me in the April issue of Nickelodeon Magazine. It's has me being mean to cosplayer at a comic con and paying the price. There's a scan of it here:[link]
This issue also features a new Avatar comic, an illustrated interview with the creator of "Chowder" and lots of funny stuff for cartoon lovers and shippers!
