This weekend, come see me at ECBACC 2013, May 18, 11am-7pm. 4548 Market St. at the Enterprise Center, Philadelphia PA.
Books, minis & other things! COMICS!! Afterwards, a cheese steak will be consumed somewhere.
COMING SOON: San Diego. North Bethesda.
My cover for the latest issue of the lefty economics magazine Dollars & Sense. The editors wanted a parody of the recent Bloomberg Businessweek cover which sparked criticism last month by seemingly blaming the housing crisis on minorities.
Check out the original, my sketch and the final image below, then read Darwin Bondgraham’s great article on the real culprits.
Since last summer, I’ve been drawing cartoons (more specifically ‘visual rounds’) with my wife Mikhaela Reid for Geeks Who Drink, a company that hosts pub trivia quizzes in over 200 bars across the country, not to mention the incredibly popular annual Geek Bowl. Aah, the pub quiz. It combines three of my favorite things: beer, pop culture, and using my big sexy brain to answer pop culture trivia.
I’d show you an example of one of my cartoons, but it’s a quiz, dummy. You’ll just have to find one in a city near you.
Get Stephen Notley’s new Bob the Angry Flower collection How to Operate a Chair and help him celebrate 20 years of drawing psychotic flowers, fetuses, Daleks, stumps, Gunts and all sorts of death-rays and robotic mayhem.
Not only does this book have some of the funniest, smartest and sci-fi geekiest cartoons I’ve ever read, but it also features amazing Bob pinups by me, Keith Knight, Mikhaela Reid, Shannon Wheeler, Ruben Bolling and a bunch of other top comic and video game creators.
I’m also doing some stuff for my friend, award-winning editorial cartoonist (and editor for Cartoon Movement) Matt Bors. In this case, “stuff” means laying flat color for cartoons like this, and this one here, and that one, and a bunch of others. Check them out!
This Saturday (2/18/12 @ 12 noon-3:30pm) I’m doing a signing with other contributors for African-American Classics (and a bunch of other great comic book writers and artists) at Hue-Man Bookstore & Cafe in Harlem for Black Comic Book Day.

I’ll be at the Brooklyn Book Festival in about…um, half an hour from the time I finish this post. It’s in and around Borough Hall Plaza on Sunday 9/18 from 10am-6pm.
See some of your favorite authors and cartoonists, like ME and Keith Knight. FOR FREEEEEE!!!
Go! Go right now!!
First, have a sneak peek at the first panel of my adaptation of ‘De Cunjah Man’ in African-American Classics: Graphic Classics Vol. 22 on sale December 2011.

Aaaaaaaaand this weekend, September 10 & 11 in Bethesda, MD, I’ll be at the 2011 Small Press Expo peddling books with Jen Sorenson and hanging out with Keith Knight and other cartoonist pals.
Unfortunately my better half, Mikhaela Reid, can’t make it this year, so this will be my first convention without a buffer between my many neuroses and the public at large. Me nervous! Hope ya like sweaty handshakes and mumblecore!
Forget the rapture!! On Saturday May 21, I’ll be in Philadelphia, PA at the Crowne Plaza Hotel for ECBACC 2011 (East Coast Black Age of Comics Convention) selling stuffed Doodles, the mini-comic ‘So You’ve Been Laid Off?!‘, copies of ‘Deep Doodle‘, Cartoon Rolodex originals (and premiering new unpublished cards).
Or maybe you’d like to buy a 2011 sampler of all my new and upcoming junk, including a sneak peek at ‘Wood’s Anatomy‘, my skewed take on the human body and all of its icky parts.
So come see me this weekend and give me your money* and attention!!
*Especially all of you Rapture-heads. I mean, whattaya gonna do with all your cash? Spend it in the Heaven gift shop? Might as well fork it over to me (I’m not going anywhere) and buy yourself a funnybook to read while you’re ‘ascending’.
My Sensations/Fingers of Death illustration is featured in today’s Covered (an amazing site full of classic comic book covers interpreted by different artists).
And while you’re there, check out my latest favorites: these by Matthew Allison.
Get Black Comix: African American Independent Comics, Art and Culture from here ** or schlep your lazy ass to the nearest bookery (if they’re cool, they’ll have it). It’s 175 pages of hardcover goodness from, and about, some of the best artists out there.
And the best part is not only am I profiled in the book, but I have a little illo on the bottom left corner of the cover.
See the Black Comix blog for more info.
*Not recommended for lonely racists.
**although you won’t get it shipped by Valentine’s Day, it should arrive by February 19th for Valenteen’s Day, a holiday I just invented.
