PENSACON MEMORIES ONE

February 21, 2017
 

PENSACON MEMORIES ONE:
Just got back from Pensacon 2017 and it was awesome.  It’s like a nerd family reunion with all my nerd friends.  So many of us make this convention every year.  So , I just remember I have a blog and should be using it.
So , I’m gonna post some memories in me blog but just concentrate on one at a time… then the others will come later.
First day of Pensacon.  A bunch of us are eating breakfast at the big table like we do every year.  It’s breakfast time and the host hotel has a cool restaurant in the hotel.  We’re all eating there when in walks David Bradley.  That’s right , Game of Thrones, Harry Potter, The Strain, An Adventure in Space & Time (Doctor Who special).  That David Bradley.  He walks over and talks to Mike Ensley (the guy who started Pensacon) and then sits at the table behind us.  It’s neat and cool just to be eating a table away from a cool nice guy like that but then we all get up and start leaving when I pick up my big furry horned puppet, Rosco.  I carry this puppet to shows and cons and he’s been to every Pensacon.  David sees him and points saying, “That’s brilliant.”  So I step over and we talk about the puppet.  He asks if I’m doing a show over the weekend and I tell him no that the puppet just helps in selling my comics and art and I also do interviews with him.  We talk about the An Adventure in Time & Space show he did.  I thank him and go about my way.
Later that day I’m waiting while the Slyvester McCoy and Sophie Aldred set up so I can interview them when David walks up.  He asks the volunteer next to me if she’s met the Puppet.  He tells her that he had breakfast with the puppet and that the puppet ate all his food.  We have a good laugh and he goes on about his way.
So who do I run into on my way out of breakfast the next day?  That’s right , it’s David again and yes I do have the puppet.  He laughs and says, ” I just keep running into you and this puppet, don’t I.”  And yes, the puppet and myself ran into David for just about every breakfast.  Even though Monday morning Rosco the puppet was packed in the car for the ride home I did have my writing pen with me and the writing pen is a snowman puppet.  So at least I had a puppet of some sort when I ran into David again as I was leaving.
Stay tooned for more Pensacon Memories coming later I tells ya and have a bubbatastic day.

More Interviews from Pensacon 2016

March 10, 2016

Rosco and myself got to interview quite a few people at Pensacon 2016 this year.  Here’s a link to the Terry Molloy interview we did.  Terry played Davros on the classic Doctor Who series with the 5th, 6th & 7th Doctors.  He and the actors that played the Doctors can also be found on BIG FINISH audio productions also.penterry 1

STARTING BACK & NEW SCHEDULE

August 26, 2013

I penciled in three new comic strips today and plan to ink them in just a bit after writing this here blog I tells ya.  i have six main titles that usually updated on Monday thru Saturday.  I’ve been putting off  drawing for over three months now because of an injured wrist.  I’ve started back but will still be using a wrist brace as I draw and ink.  I will only be updating three times a week.  QUICK APPLIANCE REPAIR, MISSISSIPPI SWAMP DRAGONS and DAWN OF TIME will update next week and the week after that will be CAPN’ GEEZER , SPACE REDNECKS and GOING BATTY.  Each week will alternate between the set of three titles till I get to a place where I can produce six comics a week again.  I will also be working on the Halloween specials.  A new ZACK THE ZOMBIE HUNTER is already written and ready to be drawn and I’m about to start writing on a new TALES FROM THE APPLIANCE GRAVEYARD.  I plan to have the New TALES start on Halloween day and go on for a month with ZACK continuing afterward for another month.  Both stories should be around 30 or so strips each.  This should get me thru the holidays and give me time to have some of the regular comics done up to be ahead for a change.  Yay.

So, starting Sept 2nd check out BUBBAWORLD COMIX for new updates.  The best ding dang comics in the civilized world and beyond Mississippi too.  Also I will begin updating the wordpress archives that I have for those comics also.

Don’t forget if you’re in north/central MS that the BACKWOODS COMICS FESTIVAL is Sept 28, 2013 at the Coliseum in Louisville, MS.

WHERE HAVE I BEEN?

August 12, 2013

Well, if you follow any of me comics and post you’ve may have noticed an absence of late.  Around three months I believe, Oh my has it been that long?  Why yes it has.  i hurt my wrist at work, my regular job not while cartooning , and now it’s very painful to draw.  It’s a stretched ligament or tendon or some such like that.  I did it to my left hand twice in a three month period but it’s completely healed as of right now.  The problem is that I did it to my right hand also.  It’s the one I draw with mostly.  I say mostly because I’m ambidextrous.  I can write and draw with both hands I have just always done my comics with me right hand.  I’ve just recently bought a sketch book to further train my left hand in drawing.  To look at the first few drawings they are actually pretty good and better than a lot of folks can draw with their normal hand.  The problem is they are not BubbaWorld quality yet.  I would not draw a comic strip with my left hand and post it as of right now.  I’m just starting back drawing again this week and I have to use a brace to be able to do that.  If you’re wondering what my doctor said…. well, I didn’t bother seeing one.  I know it’s a time heal thing and what good is it to pay some quack a lot  of money to tell me that.  My chiropractor did look at it when I went to get my back adjustment.  He has reasonable rates and I trust him more that some of the medical doctors we have around here.  The first thing I’ve drawn since starting back was a BUBBASQUATCH for the mascot and logo of the BACKWOODS COMICS FESTIVAL that I’m hosting in Louisville, MS on Sept 28, 2013… time travelers are invited and welcomed…. Take a gander at them if you will.

MS PULP CON 2013

February 18, 2013

This past weekend was a great one.  Went to the MS PULP CON in Jackson , MS .  I promoted the BACKWOODS COMICS FESTIVAL and sold artwork and more importantly, hung out with a lot of old and new friends.  Artists, writers , vloggers, fans, Store owners, cosplayers and even a clown.  Such a diverse set of buddies.
???

They come from all over the state and even from other states at times.  The night before was great just hanging out with a bunch of us enjoying getting together.  The laughter didn’t stop for some of us till 2 in the morning.  The con itself was  great.  Visiting friends at their booths while taking a break from mine.  Recognizing  folks that make it to all the events within the area.  Hanging out with new friends that you made at the last event.  Hanging out with three pros and just being silly I tells ya.

Then the crazy ninja steakhouse was just the topper to the night.  Never been to one of those types of restaurants before but plan to go to another one as soon as I can.  Just wont be as much fun without 15 or 20 friends to go with.
Check out my geek calender for more events around Mississippi.

DOX : a Time Travel Adventure comic strip Saga

March 4, 2012

I do a lot in the way of comics I tells ya.  I keep losing count on how many comics I actually draw and write.  Each week I have to draw a strip for each of my eight main humor titles.  I also have a ninth humor title that I do as specials.  I also do a Mississippi and National political comic weekly now.  I’ve worked on Horror graphic novels in the past and will do more in the future.  But I am right now drawing THREE pages every week for an action adventure time travel saga comic strip that I call DOX.

I put this comic strip at the bottom of each page ( total of three each week ) of my Digital Periodical that I send out free to subscribers. It has the eight amin humor titles that I mentioned earlier spread over the three days.  And the DOX strip is on every page Monday, Wednesday, & Friday.  But you can now catch up on the DOX saga with the archives that I put up on one of these here wordpress sites.  In fact, every time that the word DOX appears in this article it is linked to the site starting with the very first page.  Be sure to check it out.

Also , if you like my comics be sure to check out my BOOKS at the link provided.  You can order them online in print form or as PDF downloads.  And if you are in or near central MS come Sept 29 you can bring any books of mine you have for me to sign and draw in to the BACKWOODS COMICS FESTIVAL & TIME TRAVEL MEET UP.

I will talk about the other comics I do thru out the week.  Till then , See Ya in the Funny Pages.
