While I’m on my way back to Indiana from an incredible Awesome Con, please enjoy this page, fresh from the oven. It’s still hot! Be careful.
We are also ALSO confirmed for this year’s Kids Read Comics Celebration! Hosted by the Ann Arbor District Library June 21st and 22nd! Kids Read is a special show. There isn’t another show I can think of that so wholly embraces the mission to bring the awesomeness of comics and reading to not just kids but their siblings and parents, get the whole family involved! Events focus on teaching cartooning basics, drawing and writing comics, reading, and building your skills as a young creator.
I’ve been honored to participate the last few years and can’t wait to do so again this June. Especially since I’ve spent my time since last Summer building my teaching skills doing panels, and workshops at comics shows and my local library and school systems.
Can’t wait for KRC 2014!
We’ve just been confirmed for our triumphant return to Wizard World Chicago!
This year’s show is August 21st – 24th at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont. I have many happy memories attending this show off and on for over a decade now, it was the first comic show I ever bought tickets too and will always remind me of some really great people and experiences.
As always we’re really looking forward to meeting more Little Guardians readers and getting to see our Chicago-based comic friends. If you’re attending come by and say hi! Get a book or a sketch and let’s talk comics!
We had a visitor at our table today! Nina as Subira and Nancy as Subira’s spirit panther! I couldn’t wait to share our first Little Guardians cosplayers. Nina even has a guardian’s spirit orb, which I give extra points for creativity and dedication to the source material, even if Subira hasn’t yet earned her own orb in the comic.
This made my day. Also, I have to give a huge thank you to John and Indypendentshow for having us. Fantastic little show created specifically for beginning creators who want to learn more about the nuts and bolts of making comics and self-publishing. I definitely recommend it, plus it’s local for us. Bonus!
We were just interviewed by the great guys over at Comics Coast to Coast. We talk Little Guardians, creative partnerships, a bit about world building, my comics creation process, Ed’s writing influences… all the hits. We had a great time, and many many thank you’s to CCTC for having us on. I’m happy to have our comic in such good company. Seriously, go check out the other creators they’ve interviewed. And take a look at the hosts themselves. Brian, Matt, and Joel, all three very creative guys.
Give it a listen, check out the other great interviews by the CCTC guys. They’re part of the FrogPants network of podcasts. Lots to explore and check out over there.
So, that’ll keep you busy.
Little Guardians took 1st. place in the Webcomic Category at last years Small Press Alternative Comics Expo 2013 SPACE prize! And I can tell you I was in real need of some good news when I heard!
We have some big shows coming up that you really don’t want to miss:
Awesome Con – Washington DC – April 19-20
I can’t wait! And neither should you people on the east coast.
TCAF – Toronto Comics and Art Festival – May 10-11

We’ll definitely be hosting a comics meetup for this one, Don’t miss it!
Dashcon (A tumblr convention!) Shaumburg IL, July 11-13th
Ed and I will be on the World of Online Comics panel which is going to be incredible (I know who else is on the panel) and I’m in talks to play a part in a live reading of one of my favorite BBC radio series in another panel, REALLY looking forward to this one.
And that’s not even all of them! Check out the rest of our 2014 schedule in the sidebar.
HEY! Is it possible you want to help out and somehow aid in Little Guardians’ return?
Here’s how! We’re about to reorder Books 1 & 2 from our printer so we have enough for this year’s shows. Tell a friend! Show them Little Guardians! Every book we sell funds our convention tables, promotional supplies and future print runs. And it helps us spread word about the comic, helps us land spots at comic shows, etc… all that good stuff. And every one of those things we can cross off our list is one less thing on this artist’s list between you and more pages of the comic.
Also, you might want to keep an eye on Lee’s tumblr feed for more art and sketches like the ones above.
We hope you’ve enjoyed this screening of News Part II – Director’s Cut.
