Hey everybody. Things have been very hectic with packing up for the LA move, but there’s a big event you should attend this weekend if you’re in the Bay Area… Alternative Press Expo (APE, for short)
This will be my third year tabling at the show, with my usual gang of comic-making buddies… Ryan Sands, Hellen Jo, Anthony Wu, Derek Yu, and Calvin Wong. We will be at table #415, listed in the program as “The Bang Gang”. That’s in the back-left corner of the main exhibition floor (here’s a map). Ryan and I will be showcasing our two recent big projects:
Electric Ant issue 1: Our baby. A collection of comics, short stories, nonfiction, art, lists, etc. Some of the many awesome contributors include Hellen Jo, Aaron K, MC Lars, Gea, Derek Kirk Kim, Anthony Wu, Michaela Collette, Derek Yu, Eric Nakamura, Julia Wertz, and many more. Ryan created, edited and published it. I did much of the layout and illustrations. Also edited by Alice Kim. The official launch date is November 1st.
Tokyo Zombie: Yusaku Hanakuma’s slapstick zombie judo bonanza that we adapted into English. Ryan was editor and translator. I did lettering, touch-up art, and book design.
Also, I will be selling prints of my illustrated-photography.
Hope to see you there! Come on by and say hi 🙂
