Hello! I had the pleasure to return as a guest to CozbyCon in Coppell, TX this last Saturday. It was a wonderful mini con and I hope to return again next year! I loved getting to meet everyone and there were even some returning faces.

Coming up the weekend of June 1st-June 3rd I will be at Project A-kon. For those of you who didn’t have a chance to make it to Animefest, I will have Chapter Four of Enchanted available for sale. See you 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!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Lars

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope that you all were able to share this holiday with people you love. I know I had my fair share of family love and turkey, and then a nice extended weekend which I used to finish a commission. (Find it in the Professional Portfolio section!)

I was able to try out some new techniques which I think turned out beautifully, so much so that I may continue to use these techniques in my future childrens book illustrations. I’ve also been able to do more research on publishers and am getting together some illustration submissions on top of my writing submissions that I have been sending out. Also, there is a new illustration in the Children’s Book Illustrations gallery as well.

Can’t wait for Christmas next month, its my favorite holiday! Until next time, have a safe and happy holiday season!

New Illustration

Hello all! Just a quick update to let you know that there’s a new illustration up in the Children’s Illustration gallery. In the meantime, I recieved my first rejection for “I Wish I Were Blue” about three week ago, but do not worry for I will not be deterred. I know that one day it will be published and it will be loved. I just hope that day is sooner rather than later.

I hope everyone has a safe and happy Halloween!

Loving Rhyme

Lately I’ve really been into rhyming books and writing in rhyme. I love reading to my own children, whether its a Dr. Seuss tongue twister, or one of Llama Llama’s fits at the Shop-O-Rama. To me, a story always flows better when it rhymes, and I’ll more readily sit down and read I Know a Rhino than I would sit down and read the Little Red Hen. Of course its just my personal preference. Here is a little story I wrote about snow. (Its been a long summer in Texas!)

Snow snow snow
Soft and quiet as it blows
Snow snow snow
So white it almost glows
Snow snow snow
How I love you so!

I hope that makes everyone think of fond memories of snow. =)

Hooray for a new website!

Hello everyone! Isn’t the new website lovely? Its much better than my old one and its coming together quite nicely. Its very easy to update so be prepared for more updatedness!

Some of you know that I have been working secretly on writing children’s books. For those of you who are interested I now have a gallery of my children’s book illustrations available. Also, soon to come will be a portfolio of my professional freelance work. (Book covers, logos, and what-have-you) Isn’t this exciting? A special shout out to Chris Jean who made this website possible. Chris to put it simply, I owe you one!

Don’t forget to follow me on Facebook under Kriscomics! <3

Back from Animefest

We are back from Animefest and man was it a blast. It seems like once again we managed to make new friends and of course we had fun catching up with the usual bizarre bazaar gang. (And I do mean BIZARRE!) Hehe, just kidding. Thanks to everyone who swung by the table and bought Chapter Four of Enchanted this year, and also a big thanks to those of you who bought my comic for the first time. I hope you will enjoy reading it.

Also, thank you to those of you who went to the “Draw Manga” panel which Bruce Lewis so graciously invited me to jump in on. I hope everyone gained some useful insight about the comic and publishing world, as well as enjoyed our chibi soap opera drawings. I hope that I will be able to convince everyone to come to my next panel when I have one! As of right now our next event will probably be CozbyCon (if we are lucky enough for them to invite us back that is!) and maaaaybe Ikkicon, though it is not for certain yet. I hope that the wildfires near Austin didn’t affect our friends from Ikkicon, I’ll be thinking of them.

That’s it for now folks, but hopefully we will see everyone next year as well. ^_^
