Studio Comix Press celebrated their first year
at their location in Frederick St. Mall in Kitchener:
We were there for the cake.
Alfonso (pictured above handing out cake)
had done this drawing for me to add a background:
Here’s my rough ‘sketch’:
…and the finished inks:
Congratulations and Happy Anniversary to everyone at Studio Comix!
Here’s the best thing about going to all of these conventions:
Meeting fans of the book.
For example, here’s Jon:
He drove from Orlando to Tampa Bay to come to the show.
Here’s the sketch I did for him:
And here is Jon’s wall:
He had scanned the cover of ‘Flight’, printed it out in large banner-type strips
and wall-papered a 4 foot by 7 foot section of a room in his house.
I mean… how frickin’ cool is that?
This is our last show for the year:
Since it’s being held during the first weekend of Oktoberfest,
I’ll be sporting this t-shirt:
Sunshine and palms trees on the outside…
…lots of sketching and autographs on the inside…
…and we got to nerd-out a bit too…
…thanks to everyone for great show!
We are gearing up for our last, big, show of the year!

We’ll be at table P21 in Artists Alley:
Looking forward to meeting fans, old and new!
A short YouTube video…
Thanks to everyone on the Dragon Con team for a great show!
In a previous post, I had the little maple leaf icon in the wrong location.
We are, in fact, at table 316:
Hope to see some of you soon!
From a Dragon Con tweet:
“It is with great sadness that we must say goodbye to one of our own, Comics Director and beloved Dragon Con friend, Thom Trainor.
We will miss you very much and wish you a safe journey to your next chapter beyond. Rest In Peace friend.”
There is an “In Memoriam” here.
Thom was the one who invited us to the show and it’s quite a shock that we won’t be seeing him again.
He had asked that I do a Regency Elf commission for him to bring to the show.
Rachel Reeves at Dragon Con has let me know that…
“We have received many requests from artists to do something special on Thom’s behalf… we will be collecting donations at the show of original artwork to auction off during our 2019 show with the proceeds going to the American Heart Association in his honor.”
Here is mt attempt at a Regency Elf for Thom that I will be donating to the show:
The Jungle Girl collaboration went over really well
and hopefully Frank and I will be working together
on another collaboration in the near future.
