Happy Birthday Kim!

April 28th, was my sister's 40th birthday! "Happy Birthday Kim!" A couple of weeks ago, we had a surprise party for her (Christy, Gina and I spent a good 3 months in the planning) and it went out with a bang! Kim didn't suspect a thing. Whew! Christy baked a beautiful cake for Kim, and Gina made an amazing video b-day card for her. Heeey wait a minute...what the hell did I do? Anyways, a few pics from the night are HERE. (Kim is now in New York celebrating her birthday with Patrick! Yeeehaa!) I can't wait to hear about their trip when they get back in town. Cheers Kimie!

Illustration Friday: REMEMBER

I know... this is pretty geeky of me, but this is the FIRST thing that popped into my head for this week's Illo Topic: Remember
From one of my favorites, The Wrath of Khan: The Enterprise lost warp power and Spock sacrifices himself and enters the radiation chamber... but just before, mind melds with Bones (in this case, Miles) and says "Remember"...
(my other favorite thing: Dev does a good impression of Chekov "Botany Bay? Botany Bay! Ohhh Noh.")

"Saturday Mornings" at Rocketworld!

Here is Dev, me, Augie and Patrick. Suzanne is M.I.A, as she is...nearly 8 months Preggers (congrats you fertile lady!)

I want to say a BIG THANK YOU to PATRICK MA of Rocket World for letting us have this show and being so supportive, and to everyone who made the effort to make it out for the opening reception. Augie's family made it out to see us from Gilroy and Dev's sister Athena from Canada! I was pleasantly surprised by the turn-out and relieved that the 4 of us didn't end up starring at one another the whole night, alone.

Half the time I forgot to take pictures, and half the pictures came out blurry, but I posted a few up on my FLICKR CLICK HERE. Also, Check out RocketWorld's CLICK HERE (I stole the pic of the 4 of us from Patrick's collection) I also added a new button in my "current shows" link section to the right - my Stumpytown contribution to this group show.

Augie Dev and I got 2 tables at this year's Alternative Press Expo - our 2nd time out - I can't tell you enough how inspiring it was. If you haven't attended, do yourself a favor and go next year. You won't regret it, it's definitely a 'boost' in your creative juice. Check out the few pics I have HERE.

Email, don't fail me now

Well... I'm having problems with my email, in a MAJOR way. How major you say? Well, le'ts just say I'm probably getting about 50% of the emails that have been sent to me (as Dev and my friends have made known to me), or I receive them days (so far, up to 5 days) after you've sent them to me! So, I'm trying to get the problem fixed (i.e. I may need to get a new service provider)I set up a TEMPORARY solution, so please CC or directly email me at

Sorry for the inconvenience... this will hopefully be fixed soon.

Etsy Update...

Hi all...
I've been trying to make an effort to post new items on my
Stumpytown Etsyshop
on a regular basis, but I haven't been too successful. So, today I added a few hairclips (a severed fish, slab-o-ham and dead fish). Quite a few folks dug them at last week's comiccon, so I'm trying to make a few more! ...severed zombie arm is 'coming soon'

Saturday Morning Cartoons!

Hey Everybody! We are participating in a group show in San Fransisco @ Rocketworld on Friday, April 20th called Saturday Morning.

Suzanne Kaufman
Dev Madan
Augie Pagan

Our opening reception is the night before the Alternative Press Expo (A.P.E.), so if you are in the area, mark your calendar and come by and see us! (More info to come) Here is a sample from Stumpytown:

Nothing ever goes right for Hardy Har Har....

"Oh Lippy..."

ECCC is over...

Here is a big "THANK YOU" to everyone who made it out to visit Suzanne and I @ this year's Emerald City ComicCon! We had a jam-packed weekend & the turn-out this year was so much better than the last. It was nice to see folks we've met over the years and friends we hadn't seen in a while. We met a lot of new people this year - hopefully we will see again next time.

I'm a knucklehead (but you knew that already) I hardly took any pictures this year - I completely forgot to take my camera out at all on Sunday so the few pics I have are posted on my Flickr page HERE.

Oh! So 2 things that made me smile were:
1. this! How can you not smile, seein' a Tusken Raider waiting in line?!

2. there were a few folks at the con that yelled out "8-bit Chikeeeeeeen!" now and again.
(made my day)
