super*MARKET LA 2008 at MeltDown Comics

Well the show came and went but we had some great fun as always. Here are a few picts that tell the story of our day at supermarket!

Here I am drawing my macho creation. No, not that one you PERV!! My mascot El Macho.

Here's the crew in effect sporting the stashies like true Macho Men, (except for Mikey who decided to go all Van Dyke on us). From Left to right: Michael Aushenker, Ted (dry wine) Seko, Javier "The Magnificent" Hernandez and lil' ole me!

Javier, Jerrell Conner The Red R and again me. (are you seeing a pattern here, where I show up in most of the pictures, hmmm!)

Mikey and I were talking about finding funny humor cartoonist and we found a gold mine in
Pete Von Sholly!!!! Oh man I laughed my ass off to his cartoon strips. Pure parody satire ripping people new assholes type of humor! And can the guy draw. Off the hook good!!

I first met Louie at Comic-Con last year! He's an animator artist who works for Dreamworks whose stuff is off the fashizm. The man in the blue shirt is trying to warn him about the impending attack from behind. WATCH OUT LOUIE for that pink robot!!

Here I am with me wife Naomi and my good friend Elaine. I'm a narcoleptic-zzzzzz!

At the end of the show this guy kept trying to stick us up. I wasn't buying it, but I think he got Jav shaking in his boots. At least have the decency to shave your stomach if your gonna stick us up. THEY'RE LADIES PRESENT!!!!

Wizard World L.A.

Man! I'm a day late and a dollar short for posting this Wizzy show that happened a week and half ago. Not much on the side of people coming to the show and supporting us small indie creators. I guess most go to this convention to see superheroes or Lou "The Hulk" Ferrigno.
There was some luv and I appreciate it (you know who you are).
But all in all I had a blast with my table mate Javier Hernandez "El Muerto." He made it bearable along with a host of funny men that include, Michael Aushenker "Cartoon Flophouse," Keith Knight "The K Chronicles," Ruben Martinez and getting to meet some of the classic Filipino comic book artist from the 70's like Tony DeZuniga, Ernie Chang, and Alex Nino. Off the hook good!
And of course whats a show without some Super Mario Fun!!

High Stakes Poker

I was flying home after a long and restful holiday with the family when I saw a bunch of characters in the back playing a game of poker. One of the players must have been in the bathroom because when he came back the others scrunched their faces as if he'd stunk up the room. Then the idea for this cartoon, HIGH STAKES POKER, popped into my head.

Therapy can sometimes be rough...on the therapist that is! This comic idea came to me when I was driving and listening to an NPR interview on the 'mental health' of therapists and how they cope with the stresses their clients bring into the session. One therapist in particular said that he lets out his countertransference by going to the batting cage and that's when this cartoon popped into my head. I hope you enjoy and make sure to check your countertransference at the door.
