The Webcomic Sitcom That's Drawn in Front of a Live Studio Artist!
NEWS UPDATE: ARTIST CREATES 352 PAGE OPUS OF HIS ENTIRE WEBCOMIC SERIES TO DATE!
Full Report posted below
Lubbock Comics has posted a blog update on their main page regarding the upcoming 2011 Lubbock Comic Book Expo that announces an appearance by two comic artists you may be familiar with, Nate Bramble (www.bramblevinecomics.com) and some other guy named Grant Sutherland.
They’ve posted images of Nate and I in the story and I’m not sure which one looks more realistic, Nate or me. You be the judge!
Unfortunately, the formatting of the site cut off the end of the strip they posted. The funny part!! Here’s the link to the strip if you’d like to see the punch line.
MAR 13, 2011 SITE UPDATE!
Wow! Has it really been since July 13, 2010 that I’ve had the opportunity to update this site?! Let me tell you, a lot can be forgotten about how to update in html language in that amount of time, especially when one tries to rebuild everything with a completely different computer than the one he used to use (I’m tempted to start speaking in third person)!
Well, a lot has happened since my last update. Not the stuff that I thought I was going to do, but a lot of other stuff!
First of all, I’d like to make a special mention to last weekend’s Staple! Independent Media Expo in Austin, Texas and take this opportunity to thank those of you who stopped by my table. As always, it was a unique experience. I had the opportunity to meet some old friends and make a few new ones.
One of the new acquaintances I made was Illustrator Chet Phillips (www.chetart.com) and his wife (who’s an apparently mean knitter).

If you’re not familiar with his name, you may be familiar with his artwork. Regular customers to “Half-Price Books” had the opportunity to pick up one of their 2011 calendars which utilized a wide array of Chet’s work. Literary Pets (which can be found on his site) were the images that “Half-Price Books” chose as their theme for this year’s calendar. Chet’s current artistic work involves mixing animal and pop-culture iconic images with a steam-punk motif. As an added bonus, Chet’s wife carries her knowledge of knitting to the world of book binding (or is it the other way around). The books that he sells have been individually crafted and bound by her.
Also in attendance, Will Terrell, who has decided to re-launch his webcomic “Super Zeroes” starting in April, and the group of artists from Space-Gun Studios whom I worked with on their graphic anthology, “Synesthetic”.
But my big announcement for the show was the release launch of my new Omnibus Collection (sorry, no release party!) showcasing every single strip I’ve created under the “Greetings From Wonderland” title since the very first webcomic I posted in 2004 (the cover of which is posted at the top of the page). After copious amounts of poking and prodding by Nate Bramble (also in attendance at the show) (www.bramblevinecomics.com), I finally completed the arduous task of creating a 352 page book that does what my little site here really never quite did properly…explain what it’s about!!
Although I am still working on a sales site dedicated to distributing the collection to those that may be too far away at this time, I have a few upcoming shows this year that I will be attending with the book for those that may be interested:
2011 Lubbock Comic Book Expo, April 9th and 10th, in Lubbock, Texas.
Dallas Comic Con, May 21st and 22nd, in Irving, Texas.
Small Press Expo (SPX), September 10th and 11th, in Bethesda, Maryland.
If you are interested in purchasing the book before the sales site launch, you can contact me via the e-mail link at the top of the page and I can work with anyone with a Paypal account. The book is cover priced at $24.95, which is quite a deal considering the collection boasts over 500 strips between its covers. Each book will come with a little artistic “doodle” by yours truly!
Thanks again for stopping by the site. As I noted in my last update, the strip will return. You just can’t stop the burning desire to create! In the meantime, I will be posting sketches and blog posts until the return, so stop by regularly to see what I’m up to!
