Most of you know I have been working on a Graphic Novel called “Mind of Mirrors” with the group Dan and Leland.

This Weekend is Long Beach Comic & Horror Con and Saturday at 4pm in room 102C, we’ll be holding a panel about the book and the soundtrack. Dan Franklin, Leland Jackness (writers/musicians), Brianna Garcia (colorist) and myself will be discussing the book, showing new art, taking questions and the boys will also perform a couple of tracks from the soundtrack.

Tickets are still available for the Long Beach Comic Con through they’re website: http://www.longbeachcomiccon.com/buy-tickets.php

I’m hoping to have a special limited edition “Mind of Mirrors” print ready for the show, I will keep you updated. BUT… I am going to show you the first six pages from the book right now! Hopefully you’ll be able to make it to the show and if you’re already going, swing by our panel and check it out!

Brianna and I will also be in Artist Alley both Saturday and Sunday. Booths 1700/1701 (me) 1702 (Brianna)

C'ya there!

Dan and Leland - Holdin’ On 

I actually shot some footage for once! Doesn’t sound too bad considering I was only using my phone. From the Mind of Mirrors release show at the Musicians Institute on Dec. 14, 2014

“Hope” is also on my YouTube channel.

I’m so excited for the Dan and Leland concert for MULTIPLE reasons.
1. Their music is perfection with a melody.
2. I love the performers.
3. Their music literally always puts me in a good mood.
4. I get to finally meet an internet friend!
5. I JUST REALLY LOVE THEIR MUSIC OH MY GOD
I’m so excited and happy, I feel like I’m going to explode… I’m on the edge of tears man… I’M SO EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!!!

Did anyone think I wasn’t going to at least play with skittles colors? 

If you did - sorry! 

But yes, I was going to hold off on posting this, but whatever. When I did the original line art, this is the color job I WANTED to do, but didn’t have time. 

This took a grand total of two days color time. And it was so worth it! 

I’m finally happy with this!

Mind of Mirrors - DO IT

Mind of Mirrors is a project from the awesome band Dan & Leland [ Dan Franklin] and Star Wars artist Tom Hodges. It will be a combined album and graphic novel but it won’t be funded if you don’t help pledge.

Why help? Well first, you get a reward for helping, based on how much you pledge. Check out the site for the list, you can get original art, the CD, to hang out with the creators or other super cool stuff. You could even be drawn into the comic book!! How awesome would that be?

Be selfish and do it for the reward! You get a cool thing for you, plus to make a dream come true for some truly awesome people. You can get awesome stuff for as little as a $15 pledge. That’s less than getting coffee and a pastry at Starbucks!

“I’ll wait til payday” - FRIENDS! The pledge will not be withdrawn from your account until May 4th so don’t wait - pledge today!! It costs you nothing if the project doesn’t get funded.

Please do this, or at least, share this link and read the page it links to, and think about it. There isn’t much time left to help. Maybe someday you will want to make your dream come true - Kickstarter could help you. Earn some good karma by helping someone else first.
