Taipei ToyFare!

I just spent the last five days in Taiwan for the Taipei Toy Festival!! It was an amazing trip. It was my first time in Asia and let’s just say that it was love at first landing ^_^ The people there were so wonderful, kind and so very lovely.

I was there to launch my new handbag and accessory line with OSO Designs, creators of BaxBears. The handbags and bracelets are stunning! I can’t wait for them to be available here and for further updates you can check out the website OSO

Here are some pics from the trip. Enjoy!!!

Look at the beautiful bags OSO made!

Booth Setup…before the madness.

The madness begins!!

Look at what happened! The kind and proud owner of “Seven Weeping Swans” came by the booth with the original painting. It was so amazing to be reunited with my painting ^__^

I even did a signing. I was amazed by the wonderful response.

Check out Momo Tarou…the cutest thing I’ve ever seen!! I wanted to buy it but the only thing they would sell me were the apples….T-T

Look at the beautiful side streets…full of fruit, clothing and tons and tons of 7 Elevens!!

At dusk and so lovely.

Look at this amazing temple, imense and gorgeous.

Did i mention the giant fruit!! That’s a manilla mango…its the size of a newborn!!

My final contribution to the toy festival.

It was a really great trip, i can’t wait to return next year! I want to say hi to my new friends at Devil Robots, Tim, Dan, Emily and Jimmy ^_^

Nightmares Final Issue out

Hello everyone,

So I am happy and sad today, because i can announce the release of Nightmares and Fairytales 23 in stores and sad to report that this is the final issue of the series.
It has been an honour and a pleasure to work with Serena on this series. Her wonderful writing, darling character and inspiration has made this one of my favourite books to ever draw.
Thank you Serena!

Cover art, a colaboration between myself and the mucho talented Jeff Simpson ^__^

Raw art from the book, enjoy the spoils of behind the scenes!

I loved this storyline and i especially loved that jerko Lucas…sexy yet what a bastard!

I’d like to give a special thank you to the fans of SLG and of Nightmares who have supported us. I hope you enjoy the final issue.
But fret not, this summer the collected trade of issues 19-23 will be ready just in time for Comic Con 2008!

All my love to the readers, and SLG and Serena!
