Here I am wondering why my tent is so darned empty of customers!

    Every once in a while I do manage to get out of the studio, and bring along a few samples of my art and 'zines to art festivals and conventions around the country. Below is a list of the upcoming events I'm confirmed to appear at, with links to their sites for more information, where available. As well, if you're interested in a more historical perspective, you can click here for information on past shows, with photos and other nifty stuff.
    If you would like to receive an email notice when I will be at an event in your own neck of the woods, just go to the Contact Info and Mail List page. Note in the comment field you'd like to get an email notice of such events, and make sure to at the very least give me your name, email address , state and zip code. We'll use the state and zip code to help us know when we will be nearby, and send you an update note when we know we'll be there. You can then either come and visit in person, or will at least be warned to avoid that area should you wish!

And, what you really wanted to know: I will be there again this year! This is the second year they will be held in the huge Ft. Worth Convention center, and they have promised to tweak the layout a bit from last year. opening up wider aisles in the artist alley section to make it easier to get through and see everyone. Though, of course, once you've seen the rest, you will be stopping at the best. (That's me, he said humbly.) Seriously, A-Kon is always a fun and high energy convention, I'm looking forward to being a part of it again this year.

I'm going to be bringing along an extra-large art show display this year, more than have in the past, with mix of originals and prints for your viewing and buying pleasure. They are still finalizing the big-name guests as I type this notice early in 2018, but you know from the past it will always be good, along with literally dozens of other artists, writers, and other creative folks in the science fiction and fantasy field. They are at the Reed Center, just a few miles from downtown OKC. Easy access, affordable dining, and free parking. Come say hi and have a great time.

One Day Art Event
   Tired of the usual street art festival? No, and neither am I-- but that doesn't mean we can't enjoy other art events as well, and this is fun one for sure! I first did this back last October, and they are putting it together again here in Dallas. This time we'll be at the Deep Ellum Art Company for all the art weirdness. There will be close to a hundred artists showing some strange and funky work to view and take home, a bar, music, and, of course, FREE PANCAKES! How can you pass it by? Located at 3200 Commerce St,, the doors of The DEA Co. will open to the public that evening at 8:00 PM, and it will run to late-night 2:00 AM. Crawling the club-scene in Deep Ellum? Drop on in.

comicbook convention
    Back again for this nice DFW area comic book convention. It's a nice show, not too small, not too big, plenty of artists, and plenty of people selling actual comicbooks! If you are aware of my solo comic "Mechthings", or the work I did as the "Big Background Artist" on Image Comic's "Shadowhawk" series, or the other odd little comics and minis and whatnot publications I've been in over the years, then you'll know I've got the credentials to at least get my toe in the door! As with last time, I'll be bringing a selection of a lot of those odd comics and stuff, along with the usual piles of art prints and drawings to check out, and maybe some surprise items from the vault.. And, if my being there is not enough (though it should be!), check their website for the long list of big-name Comic Book Pro's who will be attending as well. I'm not proud-- whatever reason you find for coming, come on down!

Red River Revel Arts Festival
Shreveport, LA     —    www.redriverrevel.com
Juried Arts Festival
   I'll be heading back to one of my favorite shows to do, the big Red River Revel in Shreveport. They have changed the dates a bit this year, as well as making the hours on most of the days shorter, and it has ended up where I will not be able to attend the entire week as I have in the past. So, if you come looking for me again, this is to let you know I will not be there for the first half of the event, but will be there for the second half, Thursday all the way through the extended show days into the next Sunday. If you drop by early, come back again and check out all my new pieces!

Worth that will manage to shove in some 800+ artists in several blocks of art overload, all for your free stsrolling and viewing pleasure! I'm told it is always an amazing mix of art styles, types, approaches and viewpoints, always with something new to discover, so I'm very pleased to have been able to join in this year with my own work.

    This is always our last outdoor art festival of the year, and we love setting up along the winding trails and under the tall trees of Huffhines Park in the city of Richardson, located just to the north of Dallas. Come on out and enjoy the art, the food, the music, the park - and maybe even drop a few bucks my way for some artwork to take home for yourself, familly and friends. Then I can take that money and get some Christmas gifts for my own friends and family, too. It's like you'll be giving twice as many gifts, at no extra cost!

   This will be the fourth year for this small, one-day art event, the little art festival that will get u that hill!. It's right here in my own neighborhood in Dallas, so how could I say no? They are still keeping things tight, doing just the single day, a Saturday show, with a nice mix of artists to browse works from before Christmas. Drop on by, and help me to help them build this up into a big festival over the next few years-- then we can both brag that "we were there from the start"!

Setting up around 150 artists and crafters in the long Small Exhibits Building on the grounds of the Will Rogers Memorial Center. Best to check out their website for more details as they add links to the artists, and fill you in more of the free giveaways and such that will also be offered.

Dallas (Irving), TX     —    www.facebook.com/DallasFantasyFair.INFO/
comicbook convention
    Back in the day, between 1982 and 1995, this multi-genre fan convention was one of the largest in the country, rivaling both the San Diego Comic-Con and the Chicago Comicon for attendance. It's where I cut my own early comicbook-guy teeth, showing my work, meeting other artists, writers, publishers and fans, and having a great time. Well, some of the old guys are passing the torch on to some new folks, and let's see if they can capture that magic again. Who will be here aside from my own amazing self, you ask? Good question! How about the one and only Jim Steranko? Not enough, you say? (What's wrong with you, it's freakin' Jim Steranko!!!!) Here's a partial list of other names at this time, and they will be adding still more in the months to come: Frank Brunner, Simon Bisley, Michael Golden, Arthur Suydam, Kennth Smith, Kerry Gammill, Renee Witterstaetter, Mike Royer, Bob Camp, Dean Andersson, Nina Romberg, Josh Alan Friedman, Dave Tosh, Sam DeLa Rosa, Steve Erwin, Keith Wilson, Doug Hazelwood... and it just goes on and on!

art & crafts fair
    This is a small, but very "cozy" show in a large exhibit area at the front of the library building, and how many art shows do you get to attend that are not only indoors, but have carpet under your feet, too? Come out and pick up a few gifts for friends and loved ones- or drag them along with you, and show them the pieces that you want them to get for you. When you're done, browse the library, and check out a few books to enjoy over the holidays as well. It's a win-win all around!

    What? It's already almost mid-December and you still haven't finished all your gift shopping? Well, come on out to this one-day showing of arts and crafts, and help support the students at the same time. You'll be giving without even trying! (Sorry, no website to give you at this time, I'm putting this up at the end of the summer. What you need to know: We'll be at 600 East Royal Lane in Irving, and the show will run from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM. Should be the first school building on your right as you pull in, with plenty of parking just across from that on your left. Come on down!)

Remember, if you want to get the full collectible poster with text, you have to get it directly from the show. So, buy two!) Also hoping to hug a couple of purring fur-balls, if their owners wil let me!
