A Place Called Home’s FIRST-EVER Comic Art and Literacy Expo, sponsored by Disney was a blast. On October 21st, artists, illustrators, writers, poets, and publishers brought their books and knowledge to share with many kids who showed up to take part in writing, drawing and storytelling panels and then they all got to take home books and comics for their enjoyment!
The 2017 Comic Book Invasion at the Commerce Library was super-amazing!
Next Wednesday, October 4th @ 6:30 pm, the Chicano Resource Center at the East LA Library will be hosting a LATINO COMICS EXPO MEET & GREET! I will be speaking my comics with fellow-cartoonist Melina Chavarria of THE MAGIC GLASSES, Latino Comics Expo co-founder Javier Hernandez.

Last Saturday I participated in this year’s Pomona Chalk Festival. The them was “My Favorite Book”. I recently received this wonderful book titled “Latinx Comic Book Storytelling” in the mail from the author Frederick Luis Aldama and it has the cover art of one of my favorite cartoonist of all time, Jaime Hernandez so I decided to chalk it!
I had a blast this year at Sol Con & Cartoon Crossroads Columbus. Made a lot of new friends and I can’t wait until next year’s event.
My new books are in, and I cannot wait to bring them to Columbus, Ohio next weekend!
“Legend of The Green Mist” is the tale of the legendary green mist which centers around Pearl Hopp, a beautiful young wife of a shopkeeper in Spadra. Bored and dissatisfied with her marriage, she escapes into infidelity, which then leads her to a tragic end in a ghostly appropriation of a town that time forgot. See you at Sol Con 2016.
