2019 San Diego Comic-con

I had a blast at this year’s Comic-con. I dressed up as Lando Calrissian and made blue Cloud City Margaritas!

Jordan Peele's Us
These were my favorite cosplayers this year, they came dressed up as the “Tethered” from Jordan Peele’s “Us”. They were great, I also captured them on my osmo pocket. I’ll have to post the footage from that when I download it.

Oh-Oh, they see me!
Jordan Peele's Us
Here they come!
Hotel del Coronado
On the last day of Comicon, we visited the Hotel del Coronado, across the San Diego Bay. The wooden Victorian beach resort is the second-largest wooden structure in the United States (after the Tillamook Air Museum in Tillamook, Oregon) and was designated a California Historical Landmark in 1970 and a National Historic Landmark in 1977.

2019 Wondercon

I had a great time at this year’s Wondercon (as usual).


All ready to enter Artist Alley to check out all of the cool art and everyone’s new books.

The Batmobile, driven by Michael Keaton, the original conceptual illustrations for this design were drafted by Julian Caldow, under direction from Tim Burton and Anton Furst. It’s my personal opinion that the Michael Keaton batman had the best everything!

There is absolutely no denying the impact that Batman has had on pop culture. Bruce Wayne first appeared in Detective Comics #27 on March 30, 1939, which means the actual date of the 80th anniversary falls squarely during WonderCon Anaheim 2019.

A little Game of Thrones cosplay outside on the steps in front of the fountain.

Caught the panel for Jordan Peel’s new Twilight Zone reboot, with some of the producers, composers, and staff, moderated by Ginnifer Goodwin.

Before heading out, I had to have the 24K gold-plated ice cream cone at Snowopolis in Anaheim, CA.

2019 Latino Comics Expo

This was my table for a minute, I borrowed my neighbor’s Lowrider sign so I could step away and see the cool lowrider show outside.
This is the picture I took with David Gonzalez, the creator of the “Homies” collectibles. I got a signed print of his art.
A group shot of all of the artists who participated in this year’s event.
I got some amazing GoPro footage of this event, check it out below.

Dinner with friends and cartoonists in San Diego.
On my drive home from San Diego, I couldn’t help noticing the famous California “Superbloom” of wild poppies that have sprung up all over our hills and mountains due to the abundant rain that has fallen over the past few months.
I even got out of my car to see our beautiful California poppies up close.

My Trip to “Tales From La Vida” Art Exhibit in Columbus, Ohio

The Melt Bar & Gril
After the show, I stopped by the “Melt” bar and grill for one of their famous grilled cheese sandwiches, I had the Macaroni & Cheese Grilled Cheese Sandwich…Can you say AWESOME!
Jeni's Ice Cream Parlor.
Before leaving, I absolutely had to stop by Jeni’s Ice Cream for a scoop of goat cheese & cherry ice cream on their home-made waffle cones with a hint of sea salt. I love Ohio. I can hardly wait to return.
