NEW APPEARANCES

August 27, 2011

On Sept 27th, that’s on a Tuesday, I will be at the Winston County Library from noon till six p.m. signing books and selling art.  I will have some of my original comic strip art and some of my wildlife pen and inks.  I will have my books on CD as a PDF to sell with me but I may not have any regular print books at the appearances.  You can get the books HERE just follow the link and buy one, buy more than one even.  I have eight books out at this moment.  If you order them online they will ship straight to you and you can bring them to my appearances where I can sign and draw in them.  I’m a small independent publisher so this ensures that you have a book and helps me at the same time.

After the Sept appearance at the Winston County Library I will be at the Comics In Columbus Con in Columbus, MS in the Leigh Mall.  It will be Oct 7, 8, & 9.  I will be there for all three days.

I will also have my sketch cards at my signings and appearances.  October is coming up so I might even do some more zombie…. even some more Smurf Zombie cards.  Those seem to go over well.

COMIC BOOK STORE APPERANCES

May 12, 2010

Two stores in two weeks.  It was AWESOME! I’ll tell you what.

FREE COMIC BOOK DAY was May first.  It’s always on the first Saturday in May and I spent the entire day at HEROES & DREAMS in Flowood, MS.  There were a few of us artists there that day.  Myself of course, BUBBAWORLD COMIX.  T.D. Roebuck, Shane Henderson, Wade Acuff, Kevin Hayman (the ERRANT APPRENTICE), Jesse Labbe’ and Anthony Coffey were all there.  Some of us were promoting our books and all of us were doing sketches and sketch cards for the public.

The artist currently known as Chuck Jett spent the day with us too but didnt actually set up to draw.  Here he’s trying to capture someone’s soul.  The place was packed for most of the morning and then the crowd was still good but more managable after lunch time.  I took plenty of pictures of stuff Kevin drew but totally forgot to take any of what I was drawing.  I am the absent minded one at times.

Grand Master Josh was there and even someone turning in our pics to the empire.

It was a great time, I sold sketch cards and sketches and commissions and was very happy.  The store stayed open a little later than normal so I opted to go on home instead of going out to eat with everyone.  I do enjoy when I get to go out and eat with the guys.  I definitely will the next time.  It was an awesome day as it always is when I spend it at the HEROES & DREAMS in Flowood.  This is also the store that will be putting on the SOUTHERN FRIED COMIC CON in Jackson the last weekend of June of this year (2010) at the Cabot Lodge.  I will be in the Artist Alley both Saturday and Sunday.  Be sure to check it out.

The following Saturday I was in Meridian, MS at Crossfire Comics.

This was also an awesome weekend.  Some of the same folks were there with us and more.  Myself ( BUBBAWORLD COMIX ) and my partner on the MISFITS & MAYHEM horror graphic novel Shane Sullivan, T.D. Roebuck and Wade Acuff from the previous weekend.  James Powell and Oliver Twisted came up from the coast area along with Mitch Byrd and Steven Butler and Bryan King ( Neo-Earth ).  Chuck Jett was also there and was set up this time with his art and sketches.

Shane even got Steven Butler to draw him a Savage Sword of Sonic… in case you live in a cave and dont know, Steven is the artist for Sonic the Hedgehog comic book from Archie Comics…..and I just realized once again I forgot to take pictures of the things I was actually drawing.

…and of course there was the jam piece that all the artists contributed on.  Those are always fun to do.  We really need to do one for Heroes & Dreams at the convention in June.

Also I was interviewed by the local news in Meridian while at Crossfire Comics and you can see it here http://www.wtok.com/home/headlines/93209049.html

SIGNINGS, CONVENTIONS and SUCH

April 23, 2010

I , BUBBAWORLD COMIX , will be at some places here within the next three weeks.  April 24th, which is on a Saturday, I will be at the first Arts & Crafts festival in Weir, MS.  One of the things that concerns me of this appearance is the weather.  It may be raining and T-storms that day.  If I wake up Saturday morning and it’s raining I will not be going to an out door festival.  If however the weather is good I will be setting up my tent and may even stat doing Comic-a-tures .  Similar to caricatures but I will be drawing people more like they were a character out of a comic strip or book.

Much like I did myself here.  It’s also the perfect weight loss plan.  I just drew myself the size I ought to be.  I literally erased those pounds.  I will probably start doing these at my other signings if they do well for me.

The next event will be FREE COMIC BOOK DAY at Heroes & Dreams in Flowood, MS.  I will be there with other local Mississippi artists drawing sketches, sketch cards and comic-a-tures.  I’m really looking forward to this also.  Every year Comic Book Shops give out special free promotional comics all across the nation on the first Saturday in May.  This year it’s on May 1st.  I believe that they will be open from 10 am till 8 pm.  Check out the HEROES & DREAMS website for more information about them.  I go to Heroes & Dreams a lot now doing signings and sketch sessions and always enjoy myself immensely.  This will be the first FCBD that I spend with them.  I’ve gone to others in different places before.  At one I got the actor that plays Aquaman on the WB Smallville series to sign my Namor #1.

Something else that I’m really looking forward to is the opening of a new Comic Book Shop in Meridian, MS.  Crossfire Comics will be opening the first week of May and will be having an Artist Summit May 8th.  Also on a Saturday.  Myself and some other fine Mississippi cartoonists/artists will be at this gathering.  Steven Butler and Mitch Byrd will even be joining us for this one.  Mississippi needs more Comic Book Stores and Meridian is a good place for one to open.  If you cant make it to Flowood on FCBD and Meridian is closer then show up at CrossFire Comics.  But by all means, if you can make both do it.  Lets support our Comic Book Shops that put on these events for their customers.

If you are on the coast FCBD will be celebrated by 3 Alarm Comics and will have some fine artists there too.  I will be in Flowood that day but do enjoy when I’m able to hang out on the coast with Scott and them.

MISSISSIPPI’s SOUTHERN FRIED COMIC CON will be held the last weekend of June.  June 26 & 27.  The fine folks at HEROES & DREAMS will be throwing another fine Comic Con in Jackson at the Cabot Lodge this year.  I will be there along with some mighty fine cartoonists & Artists.  Larry Kenney the voice of Lion-O of the Thundercats will be there again and he is a blast to hang out with.  I’ve been looking forward to this show all year.  I made some good friends at it last year and will enjoy having a whole weekend to hang out with them.  I provided a link to the con and they have a facebook page for the latest updates.  All three Comic Book Shops I’ve mentioned in this post will be represented there.  I think they are even planning panels this year.  I dont have the details on those yet.  If you’re in Mississippi and enjoy comics or Sci Fi then you should really support this Con.  I was at it last year and I plan to be at it every year they put it on.  Come out and see me at these shows, read my comics at the BUBBAWORLD COMIX web site and I’ll “See you in the Funny Web Pages.”

Pop Culture Art Summit 2

March 2, 2010

BUBBAWORLDCOMIX.COM

This past weekend was a blast, I’ll tell you what.  What’s better than a bunch of cartoonists/artists getting together and hanging out all weekend and all day Saturday at a Comic Book Store and drawing all day?  Nothing, that’s what, nothing is better than that.  It was the POP CULTURE ART SUMMIT in Biloxi/Saint Martin this past Saturday at the 3 Alarm Comic Book Shop.  Friends of ours from the Jackson area showed up right before me and my buddy did…

….and we just hung out at the shop with the owner, Scott , for the rest of the day.  We all came down a day early.   As I put the pictures up just be sure to pay attention to the walls with all the original artwork on them.

We met another Web Cartoonist from the coast, which is pretty cool.  As I’ve said before , “Mississippi web cartoonists are not abundant in the wild and only a few still live in captivity.”

His site is at  http://www.neo-earth.com/ so be sure to check it out.

Mitch showed up and then it was a party.  We all hung out talking comics and art while checking out each other’s comic art.  Mitch worked on some pages and just inspired the rest of us.  His work is awesome.  If you dont know who Mitch Byrd is then you probably dont know what comics are either.

A bunch of us went down the road to this great all you can eat Italian/pizza place to hang out even more and just pig out on pizza and pasta.  I myself stacked up a multi layered  pile and called it the “Leaning tower of Pizza.” 

there were plenty of artists and people and even tacos provided by the store for the artists.  I loved every minute of it.  Hanging out with old friends and making new ones and reminiscing with people that I had just met.

I was in the back….well except for this picture …. I left to take pictures didnt I.  Hard to take pictures of yourself when you’re not where you were.

Here’s Steven Butler with his art and his “the Mind of Mikey McBean” book.  I got one and I read it.  I suggest yall get one too if you can.  There’s another web cartoonist from the coast I met on the left of the picture.  I’m still looking for where I put the address to his site.  I’ll post it here when I find it cause he had some good stuff.  He should have grabbed a table and joined us, actually.  Maybe next time.

Somebody requested I do Zombie Smurfs…..Of course I did it.  I’m drawing more now.  Sketch cards even.

All the artists there did a jam piece for the owner.  I took this picture before it was finished….there was more done to it after this.  This was a great weekend.  Great Host, great artists , great crowd.  I enjoyed the mess out of it.  I even got to visit with me Aunt that I dont get to see too often.  I plan to show up on the coast again at some time.

I will be at the Heroes & Dreams on free comic book day the first Saturday of May, the 1st, 2010.  The weekend after that there should be an artist summit in Meridian.  I dont have all of the information to put in this blog now but will make another blog about it closer to the time.  I’ll be doing the same for Free Comic Book Day also.  I actually plan to be at Heroes and 3 Alarm again before then.  It’s cool to have some cool comic book shops to hang out at….especially if you’re a cartoonist.

Pop Culture Artist Summit

February 17, 2010

I’m preparing for the Pop Culture Artist Summit in Biloxi MS at 3 Alarm Comics.  I’m stoked about getting down there.  I’ve made some artist/cartoonist  friends around the coast area that will be there and some artist/cartoonists friends from Jackson will be down there too.  There will be some that I dont know yet that I will get to meet on Feb 27th.  I will have BUBBAWORLD COMIX VOL 2 which has a collection of my SPACE REDNECKS & GOING BATTY comic strip titles.  I’m also working on some original artwork and sketch cards to carry down with me.

Here’s a couple of sketch cards, in color even….I dont do many sketches or cards in color.  Maybe it’s because of my color blindness with reds & greens….a color blind artist, who ever heard of such?  I did these Guardians of the Universe right after I did an 8 1/2 x  11 sketch of the Statler & Wardolf Muppets as the Guardians.

The folks at the Heroes & Dreams comic book store in Flowood MS have been having me draw a bunch of Muppet / Green Lantern Rings pictures.  It all started with a request of Fozzie Bear wearing all the Lanter Rings of Power…

….and then a Gonzo….

….and so on.  I am currently working on more Muppet and Sesame Street / Lantern Rings pictures.  I’ve also been working on some of my sketch cards.  This Booster Gold was bought just a couple of days after it was drawn.

the same person bought one of the Counts too…..

….Two….Two Muppet Sketch Cards…ah ah ah ah ah…(Thunder sound effect overhead)

And of course I will be working on some Doctor Who sketches and cards…..must draw some Who.     I will be working on a bunch of types of drawings.  I will be bringing some of my original comic strip art from all six of my titles of  BUBBAWORLDCOMIX.COM

I will even have artwork of future projects.  This is a Shak-A-Ree from my sci fi saga , “DOX”.  I will be working on some original sketches and sketch cards from this series I have already written.  I just have to lay out the pages and start drawing on the books.  It should make about 5 or 6 graphic novels.  The  sizes I draw in are 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 , or trading card size….8 1/2 x 11 1/2 …… and  11 x 17.  I use to do some on 5  1/2 x 8 1/2 but I pretty much dont draw on that size anymore.  Be sure to pop down to Biloxi on Feb 27th in a couple of weeks and check out the Pop Culture Art Summit.  If you want a certain sketch or card drawn just email me at   bubbaworldcomix   (at)  gmail (dot) com

If you want something and dont live in Mississippi or cant make it to the coast then just email me with your requests.
