Injured - AX aftermath

Journal Entry: Tue Jul 5, 2016, 11:14 AM



update on my status: I had been involved in a car accident (rear ended at a stop light) on Thursday morning, when I was on my way to pick up my vocational diploma from my school... and I was going to pick up my AX badge. It screwed up my weekend and for those of you who were trying to find me, but didn't, I apologize!

I had a hard weekend. I am in a bit of neck and back pain, and will find out what the extend of damage to my body is... I'm feeling better compared to the first day of accident.... Just wanted to let you all stay in the loop!

Hope your AX was great!

APE Aftermath and updates+events!

Journal Entry: Wed Oct 7, 2015, 12:01 PM



APE was an awesome convention that had SO MANY talented people who self publish their own works! I would love to see more conventions like that.

Unfortunately I did not sell well, so I do not think I will be attending next year. :( Which brings me to announce that I will also be taking a break next year, with conventions. Save for possibly WonderCon and the big one, SDCC. I desperately need some time to focus on my own artwork, and produce new material to you, the viewers!

Right now there are two conventions left on the :icondarn-tootin: list:
o Comikaze Expo (Oct 30-Nov 1) Los Angeles, CA
I will not be present on Halloween (Sat). I've got plans with my family!
o CTNX, Animation eXpo (Nov20-22) Burbank, CA
I will be helping 47ness with his booth for a day or two. I don't think I will be sharing the table after all. Sorry for any inconvenience!

I'll also be at some other events this fall:
o Mega Art Wars at the Improv Space (954 Gayley Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90024) Oct 17 at 10PM
o Zine Fest at Nostalgic books and Comics (256 W Fairview ave. San Gabriel 91776) Nov 14
o "Just for the Halibut: a Merfolk Exhibit" This is my solo show at Fan Alley (
423 S. Brookhurst Street Suite O,Anaheim, CA 92804 - shopfanalley.com/) Dec 12

Craziness abound, right!? I'm also in the works to see if I can get into the Girls Drawing Girls show we will be having on Nov 14 - I will be double booked with the zine fest, but we'll see what happens!

Alternative Press Expo (APE) 2015

Journal Entry: Mon Sep 28, 2015, 3:09 PM





47ness and I will be at Darn Tootin' booth #153!

If you haven't been to the Alternative Press Expo before, it's a convention designed just for original artists and creators! No big names like Marvel or DC to compete with... Sounds like a lot of fun, and even though my artwork has been there back in 2013, I'm excited for my artwork to be there again this year (this is personally my first time ever going)~!!

We will have the usual:
Comics, original artwork, and FREEBIES! See you there!

Rocky Merch available @ Fan Alley

Journal Entry: Wed Sep 9, 2015, 6:00 PM



Can't go to a convention I'll be at? Don't want to order online? Stop by Fan Alley in Anaheim, south off the 5 freeway on Brookhurst. They post their hours everyday online by 10AM.

Fan Alley has my 11x17" sized prints that I no longer desire to re-print, so what is at the shop is (pretty much) the last of my inventory! I also dropped off original artwork, the lineart, of these two prints:



Additionally, Fan Alley has my Heroes&Bandits charms available as well!

Follow Fan Alley on Instagram!

So please swing by this month, shop local, and do check out the millions of crazy awesome things to see at their store! :)

This'll be a great opportunity for ya'll to swing by and say "HI"--Espeically for those who weren't able to make it to the conventions I went to recently!

I'll even have some goodies for sale, such as my zine, comics, keychains, stickers, and even original art!

Fan*Alley is a unique shop that supports artists and creatives! They carry a wide variety of art prints, art merchandise (necklaces, magnets, etc), and even hand-made one of a kind items! Of course, a lot of the items are with the geeky theme in mind. They often hold art shows, and even have COSPLAY DISCOUNTS! Yes, if you dress in cosplay and shop at the store (it doesn't matter what day or event), you get a discount :)

Fan*Alley is run by the lovely Eva. Come down and say hello!

Post SDCC and AX 2015

Journal Entry: Tue Jul 14, 2015, 2:02 PM



Man what a crazy weekend! Sales did well for my book, Heroes&Bandits at SDCC. Anime Expo was very quick, and I wasn't able to see as much as I really wanted to. The Artist Alley is huge! I'm not going next year, and I don't think I'll be going to AX as much anymore in general.

SDCC was crazy crowded and considering I have a bunch of new merchandise for sale, that didn't change much of anything. It was a new crowd to share my artwork with, and I'm just happy that I had fun and so did 47ness and everyone who helped me!

THANK YOU to everyone who stopped by, and THANK YOU to anyone who bought anything from me! It was great to see friends and family take the time to chat with me. Honestly, that's what makes a convention fun for me - seeing familiar faces in a big and crowded convention brings joy to me :')

===

As for those who were not able to attend Anime Expo and SDCC: I'll have my merchandise available on my Etsy very soon, and I will make an announcement here and everywhere else so that you can find out more!

===

Here is the rest of mine and Alejandro's (47ness) convention schedule:

Bullet; Green Long Beach Comic Con (Sept. 12-13th) Long Beach, CA

Bullet; Green Gaslight Gathering (Sept. 18-20th) San Diego, CA pending

Bullet; Green Alternative Press Expo (Oct. 3rd-4th) San Jose, CA pending

Bullet; Green Comikaze Expo (Oct. 30th-Nov. 1st) Los Angeles, CA

Bullet; Green CTN Expo (Nov. 20th-22nd) Burbank, CA

San Diego Comic Con 2015

Journal Entry: Mon Jul 6, 2015, 1:08 PM



Are you going to SDCC? Come by Small Press K06, to see me and 47ness!



I have my new book out, Oodles of Doodles which is a collection of sketches and doodles from the past two years (about). I'd like to continue making books like this, and will probably have another one out at the start of 2016, TBD. There are only 60 books available. If I still have more available after SDCC, I'll post them on my Etsy and let you guys know :)

Also, I have Heroes&Bandits keychains available! I only have 100 of these, and will probably print a completely new set in the future. Same goes for these, if I have some leftover from the convention, I'll post them online on my Etsy.

Thanks to everyone for the +favs and +watches and support! You guys are awesome :)

See you in San Diego!!

Wondercon 2015 aftermath!

Journal Entry: Mon Apr 6, 2015, 10:46 AM



47ness and I had a BLAST this past Wondercon!! We were seated close to good friends, such as :iconjeffvictor: and :iconzoemoss:!! Making silly faces at each other during down times kept me going ;)

This was also a milestone event, because I SOLD OUT of the remaining Heroes&Bandits graphic novels I had in my inventory. THANK YOU to everyone who has bought a comic and has supported this story!

And great news! I am making new HB material to release at the Comic Con San Diego show.

Expect to see updates, as I am aiming to have some material to release during Free Comic Book Day, Saturday May 2nd! It might be a zine, it might be stickers, either way it will be something FREE from yours truly ;) More information coming soon!

Once again, THANK YOU to everyone for your support!

For those of you on Tumblr, you may have noticed I have two different blogs:

Rocky-o - This blog has my artwork on it.

I deleted Rocky-o due to Tumblr stuff (I couldn't make it my main blog), so everything is RESET.
