Is this available online?

I think I'm becoming a little feverish and the medicine that should make me drowsy is somehow keeping me awake, so here I am updating my blog.

This past weekend was the Locust Moon Comics Festival, which was a really great show. I sold all of three whole books (one of each item that I had available). I can't lie and say that I'm not a bit disappointed but I'm still in the early stages of attending shows and trying to "get out there", so I know I can't be too upset about it. I just have to focus on producing in greater number and consistency so I can feel content to call myself an artist instead of a guy who draws every now and then.

That said, there was one thing that did kinda bothered me at the shows I've attended this year and I don't think it's bad of me to complain...but a question that kind of irked me is the title of this post, "Is this available online?"

This seems like they're saying, "This is cool and all, but I don't really want to pay money for this." I mean, everyone is free to spend their money as they want, but it does sting a bit when this question is given as opposed to just asking if I have a website/blog.

Ah well, it's not a huge deal and I'm sure people get a lot worse, so I'm not going to dwell on it.

Now, on to the drawings. Below, are a few sketches from a hand-made sketchbook that I produced as a birthday present to myself. They're all from New York City subway.

New Book and Some New'ish Sketches!

Hello, Blogger.

Has it been that long? It looks like you've grown.

There were many good times between us, but I suddenly abandoned you without much notice.
The truth is, a lot has happened in these past few years. I've traveled, worked, lived, and almost died and somehow I forgot to include you in my daily routine.
For my neglect, I am truly sorry and hope that we can try to develop a relationship once again.

Maybe you can see me at the Locust Moon Comics Festival this weekend in Philadelphia and rekindle our friendship.

Oh, you didn't know about that? Well I'm kinda into comics now and I've been to a festival or two this year. This is my latest one.

I'll be debuting the second edition of my NYCsubsketch series and this book will feature over 150 pages of sketches from my time in Japan. Here's what the cover will look like.

You can find me at table S-12 with my friends from A28Press.

Do come! We have so much to talk about. 

Before I go, I would like to leave you with some sketches that continue from where we left off.

See you this weekend!
