Filipino Komiks Expo this Saturday!

The Filipino Komiks Expo is happening this Saturday from 1-5pm at the I-Hotel Manilatown Center in San Francisco! I'm pretty excited about this. I know it's not a big show, but I am anxious to see the exhibit they have up, and of course seeing the i-Hotel itself, steeped in Filipino and San Francisco cultural history! After years of political battles, evictions and protests, the i-Hotel was finally renovated into a Filipino cultural center and a residence for Bay Area seniors.

Bay Area Cartoonist and pal, Lark Pien and I will be tabling there at the show! We'll have our latest books and mini-comics available for sale and for signing. Also come see the current exhibit up showing the work of Filipino komik artists like Alfred Alcala, Alex Nino and others. And, there's also going to be a raffle for the big coffee table book History of Filipino Komiks (which I WANT!) and a sale on Filipino comix from the 1970s!!!

So, please stop by! It should be fun! Do spread the …

Rock N Roll is ALIVE!!! Minneapolis!!!

Man! Look at the awesome flyer that Tom Kaczynski designed for this weekend's Minneapolis Indie Expo!

I am excited and scared (I still hate flying) to be there to help my pal and hero Annie make change and sell awesome books at the Koyama Press table, #92! I have never been to Minneapolis so I can't wait to see all the art institutions, pig out on hearty meals, take a picture of the Mary Tyler Moore statue, as well as ogle Prince's... guitars at the Hard Rock Cafe. Yeah, I'm all Tourist up in here! Anyway, come see us as well as my publisher Sparkplug Comic Books, table #61 at the show.

Oh! And, I'll have some copies of my beloved pet anthology "Pet Project" and will be debuting my mini comic "Doodle Daze" sequel, "Outta This Comes The Crazy"... 64 pages of sketchbook strips and drawings about family, pregnancy and making deadlines, perfect bound with love and affection.

So I hope to see you there!
