This one is a little late compared to the other posts, but that is because I was in Chicago. Tom [from Olympian Publishing] set up a couple of signings for me at a couple of stores I had never been to before. Comix Revolution in Evanston and Chicago Comics in one of the cooler spots in Chicago. Comix Revolution reminds me a lot of Green Brain in Dearborn, they have an amazing selection of books. I came out with a nice Taschen- Hieronymus Bosch book, hee hee.
Comix Revolution and Caitlin and Harrison from Chicago Comics.
It was a quick trip, I left the Ann Arbor train station at 7:48 am on Fri. the signing in Evanston was at 12:00, which I was an hour late for. Then I went over to the Century Guild Gallery space where we hung out and had some amazing take out from Chickpea . I got to see some new Gail Potocki pieces up close. Then went back to Tom's and fell asleep. Tom's a bit of a late riser and since he had only slept 2 hours the previous night I had a lot of time to myself in the morning. So after I figured out how to operate his entertainment system, I put in his copy of Dune and proceeded to do up some more sketch covers. These were taken with my fairly out of date iPhone so they are a little bit fuzzy hope you don't mind. I actually watched Dune twice in the time it took me to complete 8 covers [all of which aren't posted]. The last one I did when I was in Chicago signing Kickstarter books.
After Tom got up we had about an hour and a half to head out to Chicago Comics. The signing went really well, I received a lot of very nice feed back from people unfamiliar with CPG. There were also a couple of fans I have met before at conventions and I really appreciate that you all came out. Thank you very much to everyone who took the time to come and say hi! After that it was dinner and pretty much straight to unconsciousness. I had to catch the train at Union Station at 7:30 am. Which I managed to do with plenty of time to spare. It was only at the station that I realized I left my phone charger at Tom's... wanh wah...
I have one more signing scheduled and that is going to be nice and close to home. Mar. 2nd at Comic City in Canton. After that I get all geared up for C2E2. That's right Chicago, you haven't seen the last of me! MwaAHaaaHaaaahaaaaaa!! So if you are in that area the 18th through the 20th, of March, you should come to the show.
p.s. if you have been curious as to why I've always posted with a ] or a [ it is because my parentheses buttons do not work on my keyboard. :[
