World Art Drop Day!

Today is World Art Drop Day which was started by Mr. Jake Parker. Last year, I spent the whole afternoon leaving art in various spots in Downtown Lagrange in Illinois

Today I will be leaving two pieces of art in places I frequently visit in or around the Orland Park area.

Tune in to my social media feeds, mostly Instagram and Twitter around 11am-Noon [CST]. I will be shooting video and posting clues as to where you can find these two pieces of art:

BONUS DROP! Adding this Pretzel with a location I thought of this morning.
Stay tuned!!!

During the last 24 hours I had this creative brain fart about Periscope and social media in general (don't worry that's a positive thing).

For those not in the know, Periscope is an app where you can live stream video from your smart phone and users can log on and see what you see.

So the last few Periscope videos I did went over pretty well and I enjoyed doing them and interacting with whoever was watching.

From there, this snowball effect happened and I was left with this: social media programming, FREE creative content just for YOU

It's simple. All you need is your smart phone, click the follow button on whatever social media you are into, and you can see what I'm up to everyday. And if you dig it, share it!

So your #WeeklyWhenUWereLittle is this:

Monday's: #HyperlapseMonday is a timelapse video of the artistic process taken with the video app Hyperlapse
Posts on Instagram and YouTube

Tuesday's: After School is a weekly web-comic I do with fellow creator, Victor Dandridge. They are the mini-adventures based on the print comic we do, Wonder Care Presents: The Kinder Guardians.
- Posts on Tumblr and Twitter.

Wednesday's: The Pull Box is a bi-weekly show where I talk about the latest comics I am into and we discuss what everyone picked up for New Comic Book Day!
- Posts on Periscope.

Thursday's: #TBT w/Me is a show where I take a look at old sketchbooks and you can ask me questions like, "Why do you like drawing Alf?" Watch my art style evolve as we go through the pages together.
- Posts on Periscope.

Friday's: Draw, Monkey! is a show where viewers can tune in and from the jump suggest a character for me to draw. I talk about my process and show you what tools I am using as we go from roughs to a finished drawing.
- Posts on Periscope.

*So I hope you tune in and find me on your various social media outlets! Use the following hashtag: #WeeklyWhenUWereLittle

Post: Alsip-Merrionette Family Friendly Comic Con

This past weekend, The Alsip-Merrionette Library put on a wonderful free comic con as part of their summer reading program this year. It was a really well put together show and something that has the potential to grow like that of Comic Book Mania at the Elgin library.

I had a blast and sold a few HEART books which always pleases me! I got to hang out with Dave Gruba of Instant Press Comics and the amazing Angel Onofre all day the show. The convention had all kind of things for kids from prize games, a photo booth, and free caricatures. At the end of the con, I donated some books to the library as a thank you for holding the event. I even got to do some #cardBOREDsketches for the box.

Post: Appleseed 2015

Earlier in May, I attended the Appleseed Comic Convention in Fort Wayne, Indiana. I also had the pleasure of staying with my good friends, Justin Stewart and Tressina Bowling. We recorded an episode of their podcast, Sequential Spirits which had special guests too, from Victor Dandridge (writer on Wonder Care Presents: The Kinder Guardians), to Ren McKenzie, and Mason Easley. It was incredibly fun but very, very NSFW.

The show itself was a lot slower than most cons I've been to. I did get some groovy commissions which you can check out here. Also did a few art drops but again no one stopped by the table to claim it. Victor's girlfriend Adrianna spotted it, but left it for some lucky kid to find.
