Interview from the Mid-Ohio-Con brought to you by Comic Related.

I had a great time recording an audio interview for Comic Related @ The Mid-Ohio-Con. My interview starts at minute 13.

Deadline to submit is October 30th!

Hi all,

The date to submit a favorite childhood memory is October 30th because on October 31st, I'm going to pick the submissions I want to put into the new book. If you are selected, you will receive an email and a disclaimer asking if it's okay for me to turn your memory into a When I Was Little... page. So if you haven't already, email me, or hit me up on the facebook group and tell me what you did when YOU were little!

Mid Ohio Con 2009: Wrap Up

Well I'm back from my trip to the Mid Ohio Con. It was my first time there and only my second convention. Nic and I had such a great time and the convention was a success. I nearly sold out of my book stock, networked with a lot of great creative people, and did some really great commission work for people. I am definitely coming back next year and hope to attend S.P.A.C.E.D. as well. A lot of people I talked to, especially the good folks @ Comic Related told me that I'd fit right into the atmosphere of the S.P.A.C.E.D. convention, so I look forward to doing that too. Well here are some pics of the con! I plan on posting what I ended up walking away with as well as links to all the talented people's sites. Enjoy!
