UPDATE: I will be exhibiting BOTH DAYS of FanFaire 2018 held the weekend of February 24-25.
FanFaire is a “pop culture art festival” hosted by the High School of Art & Design (245 East 56th Street, NYC) on February 24-25 from 10am-6pm each day. Look for me in “Creator’s Drive” at the table registered to Allan Dorison.
I will be selling my comics, sketches and original production art as well as taking commissions for Cosplayer Portraits and Character Sketches.
A few of my favorite sketches from “Boxing” Sketch Night at The Society of Illustrators. The models (introduced to us as Sarah The Slammer and Greer The Greater) brought great energy and actual experience with boxing and kick-boxing to their poses.
“The Slammer” – Pencil
“The Greater” – Markers, pencil on toned tan paper
Undefeated – Ink with wash
I’ve been invited to share table space with a friend exhibiting at FanFaire 2018, a 2-day festival to be held February 24-25 at the High School of Art & Design (245 East 56th Street, NYC). FanFaire is run by the Art & Design High School PTA as a fundraiser and as a celebration of creativity, entrepreneurship, and technology in the arts from cartooning and animation to architecture and fashion.
Details are still being ironed out (it’s possible I may only be able to participate on Saturday-24th) – stay tuned for more info.
Because of my reduced convention schedule, I’ve been neglecting this website but am now going to try posting new content more regularly. Instead of focusing solely on my comics and convention appearances, I’ve decided to start sharing more artwork.
Last night, I attended Sketch Night at the Society of Illustrators. The theme was “Vintage Broads” and these were my two favorite sketches of the night: the first is of burlesque performer Gretchen Wylder; the other is of drag performer Scarlet Envy.

I just received confirmation that my exhibitor application was approved for the 2018 MoCCA Arts Festival to be held April 7-8 from 11- 6 at Metropolitan West (West 46th Street between 11th and 12th Avenues just across from the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum). More details to come.
This is a drawing I did to fill an extra page in my new minicomic “Origins of Origami Comics: Volume 1 – Pandora’s Box” (which, as the title implies, provides some background into the thinking, research and preparation that went into the creation of my first origami comic, “Pandora’s Box”).
It’s been almost ten years since I created “Pandora’s Box” and I thought this mini provided a good opportunity to revisit the subject and see how much my drawing style has changed.
Look for me at the 2017 MoCCA Arts Festival (April 1st & 2nd in NYC)!
I will be at table F-217 with two new mini-comics – “Origins of Origami Comics: Volume 1 – Pandora’s Box” and “Unfolded Tales (UNSUNG)” as well as old favorites including “Pandora’s Box,” “Schrodinger’s Cat,” “Bonetti’s Defense,” and “Platform 3-1/2”
“Platform 3-1/2 “is at the printer now and (with a little late night trimming, cutting, folding, etc.) I am looking forward to debuting it at MoCCA Fest next weekend (April 2-3). “Platform 3-1/2” is an artisanal mini-comic with a “hidden page” for readers to discover.
Origami Comics will be exhibiting at MoCCA Fest (April 2nd & 3rd in NYC) this year. More details to come.
Please note that MoCCA Fest has moved to a new location, exhibitors at Metropolitan West (639 West 46th Street just off 12th Avenue) with programming at Ink48.
Exhibitor Hall will be open from 11:00AM – 6:00PM each day.
Origami Comics will be at table #222 (2nd Floor) during this year’s MoCCA Arts Festival. This year’s festival will be held on April 11 & 12, 11am-6pm each day at Center 548 (West 22nd Street between 10th & 11th Avenue).
I will be debuting a new comic “Bonetti’s Defense: I Know Something You Don’t Know About Swordplay in The Princess Bride.” It’s an analysis of actual fencing terms and historical fencing masters referenced in the movie and book. Who are these people? What does it all mean? And does Thibault really cancel Capo Ferro?
