Friday Party Time!

Hey everyone!  Friday is just around the corner! Make sure you come out to El Kartel at 9:00 pm on December 11th for the release party with all the cool new clothes, more handbags and accessories and one of a kind art prints!  The address is 1025 Robson Street.

I’ve posted a selection of shots from the model photoshoot on my Flickr page, so go check them out! There are a few details about the clothing that you can’t see there – like the black ink is sparkly, the white reflective ink is nearly silver and the hoodies all have gold zippers and these are all truly one of a kind because they are hand screened; no two are alike. Special stuff!

Here is the invite, so come out to the party if you can — and keep your fingers crossed — we don’t want a snowstorm like last year 😉

BURN is now a Graphic Novel

I’m very proud today to announce that my mini-series, BURN, is being published as a graphic novel by Simon Pulse!

BURN was my first creator-owned story and series, and it was published by Arcana Comics. Now we’re moving up, into graphic novel territory and I hope that everyone who hasn’t had a chance to read it, or who doesn’t like single issues, will pick up the graphic novel.

I even designed a brand new cover for it!  I don’t currently have any of these available for sale, but they will be widely available at bookstores, and on book buying sites like Amazon or directly from Simon Pulse.


Special thanks to Sean O’Reilly, Quenton Shaw, Michael del Rosario for all their work and help with getting BURN to this stage.  We’re all looking forward to seeing how much more we can grow with BURN.

APE Con San Francisco!

Hi there,

The last convention of the year is finally here! Phew, what a whirlwind it’s been!  I just so happen to really love APE Con, and I’m stoked about getting to present issue 1 of Sky Pirates of Neo Terra published by Image Comics!

I’ll also have Tanpopo, Volume 1 & 2, which weren’t available last year at APE!  And guess what else I’ve got?? BURN Issue 6!! yessss, for everyone who hasn’t been able to get it, now will be your chance!

San Franciso … here I come!! See you all there 🙂



Another Convention – Anime Weekend Atlanta this weekend

My travels haven’t come to an end! My gallery opening on Friday was wonderful but little time to enjoy it because tomorrow I leave for Atlanta, for Anime Weekend Atlanta. This is my second year going in a row, and also the second year that the kind and generous organizers have me as special guest. In return, I’ve contributed a design that they’ll be using on their official convention ware, including t-shirts.


So what’s new for AWA? The official North American release of Specter Kuro! I launched Specter at the Singapore Toy, Game and Comic Con. Just like the original, black Kuro, Specter is limited edition.  Come and get yours, Atlanta! I’m so happy to launch him there!!  He’ll be available soon online too.
