2020 LA County Census Chalkathon

I am excited to participate in the 2020 LA County Census Chalkathon. From August 17 – September 7, there will be weekly giveaways on Facebook live. Everyone counts in the 2020 Census and Los Angeles County has many more households to count! Results from the 2020 Census will support our community for the next 10 years. In addition to funding for healthcare, public safety, roads and schools, the Census is important because nonprofits depend on Census data to determine funding for the arts, Pell Grants and much more. So get your chalks out, chalk your heart out and post using the hashtags #LACcensuschalkathon #CaStudentsCount, and most important, fill out your Census form. Everyone Counts! ¡Todos Contamos! 2020Census.Gov.

2020 San Diego Comic Fest

My table with new branding.

Before the COVID-19  Safe At Home executive order, I was lucky to attend the 2020 San Diego Comic Fest. I was happy to debut my new branding, including my new banners for my table. I had so much fun seeing all of my San Diego friends, I can hardly wait for next year’s comic fest!

My new banner with some of the art in my comic books.
This year’s theme celebrated the science-fiction master Ray Bradbury, and stop-motion animation legend, Ray Harryhausen! These are some of the props created by Robert Maya for “Jason and The Argonauts”. Their eyes even lit up!
oh-oh! I’ve messed with the wrong skeleton army!
Even the Mandalorian with Baby Yoda made an appearance!

San Diego Comic Fest

I am excited to table at the San Diego Comic Fest, the comic convention with a casual atmosphere and an intimate scale that allows fans to mingle directly with professionals and exhibitors. It’s the place where you can indulge your love of comics, science fiction, films, and meet professional creators without high-priced tickets, crowds, or long lines. I hope to see some of you there!

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.
