Mini A-kon VI

Hello hello! I hope everyone had a wonderful New Year! Kriscomics had an awesome 2012 (thanks to all of our fans and friends!) and we’re really looking forward to what 2013 will bring.

Our first event of 2013 will be Mini A-kon in Denton on January 26th at the Denton Public Library! This is my third year returning as a guest and I am just so excited to be invited back. The event is free to get in and has tons of panels, guests, and fun! Also I will be debuting my newest manga in its print edition: “A Day in the Life of a Cat Girl!” Of course I will also have chapters 1-4 of “Enchanted” for sale as well as prints, buttons, and key chains.

If you live in the Dallas/ Fort Worth area please stop by and say hi!

Anime Eye Tutorial on YouTube

I have finally joined the rest of the world and made a YouTube video. Since it was my first video I chose a pretty simple subject: How to Draw a Basic Shojo Anime Eye. So far the response has been pretty decent. I’m still trying to make the videos a little less shaky, but once I do I will start doing tutorials on how to tone comics, paint with watercolors, and general anatomy tutorials.

In other news I just want to remind everyone that I will be attending the debut of Micro A-kon on December 8th, 2012 where I will be hosting a panel on Drawing Manga. I’m excited to meet the fans in Burleson!

Please check out my YouTube video. If you have an idea or subject you would like me to cover in future tutorials please leave me a comment and I will do my best to cover it. Have a great day!

Facebook Challenge

I’m hosting a “challenge” on my Facebook page right now. If the page gets up to 200 likes I will post my entire one shot manga, “A Day in the Life of a Cat Girl” for free for everyone to enjoy. You can buy the hard copy comic at Mini A-kon in January 2013.

Also I will have my convention schedule posted soon. I’m still confirming two cons, but as soon as I confirm them I will post it here and on my Facebook page. As of right now my next appearance will be Micro A-kon (Not to be confused with Mini A-kon) which is in Burleson, TX in December. I will be hosting a panel on manga making. I can also confirm that I will be a guest at Project A-kon in June 2013! read all about it on their website. By then I will also have Chapter Five of Enchanted for sale so make sure to stop by and pick it up!

As always thanks for reading guys!

AnimeFest 2012 Con Wrap Up

AnimeFest 2012 was the most amazing con ever! Wonderful guests, wonderful fans and wonderful staff! I’m so excited about all of the Enchanted fans who swung by the table. It was so great to see everyone!

I got to host two panels on comic making. I hope that everyone learned something useful or at least had a good laugh. The Opening Ceremony was truly awesome!

I made some new friends (Shout out to Greg, Pat, Devin, Lawrence and Matt)  and definitely some unforgettable memories (and the pictures to prove it!) I got to meet Arina Tanemura who has had such a huge influence on my work and my desire to draw comics.

I had a radio interview with the Nerd Show. They were so wonderful. We had a lot of laughs and I think I taught them some very useful Romanian. (They know what I mean, heh heh heh.) You can hear the interview on the Nerd Show’s website.

Of course it was great to see all my favorite con friends. Bruce, Jen, Lynn, Chris, Ben, Charles, Marissa, Joanna, Megan, Brandon, Ryan, Cap’n, Gwynn, and Lisa it is always a pleasure to be in your company. Cons wouldn’t be the same without you!

Last but not least I was so honored that Animefest had me as their guest this year. Animefest will always be one of my favorite conventions! My next scheduled appearance is Micro A-kon in December. I will post more on it later. Until next time everyone!

Guest Artist at Animefest 2012

I am very excited to announce that I will be an official guest artist at Animefest 2012! This is my first time being invited to such a large and renowned convention so saying that I’m excited just does not cut it.

Since I will be a guest I will be participating in many panels and events, so make sure to check out your program to see what events I will be at. As always we will have a table in the Bizarre Bazaar and will be selling comics, prints, and anything else I can put art on. Also I will have original hand painted art in the art show that you can bid on to take home. I never paint the same thing twice so it worth checking out. That’s it for now. I can’t wait to see you all there!

I Wish I Were Blue E-book Releasing Soon!

"I Wish I Were Blue" Sneak Peek

This Friday March 2nd my children’s e-book, “I Wish I Were Blue” will be available for purchase on all Amazon Kindle Products and apps! I am very excited to be releasing my first ever children’s book.

This book which was written and illustrated by yours truly is about a bear who is tired of being a “plain brown bear” and wishes he could paint himself a new color. He paints himself several different interesting colors and patterns before he realizes it is not his appearance that makes him unique, rather his personality and individual traits. Also a fun rhyming book, young toddlers and preschoolers will find themselves expanding their language skills as well as learning about new colors and patterns as well.

Also, coming soon will be a free accompanying color sheet so your child can color their own unique bear! Stay tuned for more info and a link on this exciting new e-book!
