ART: Frak Off

I wanted to put my art on a flyer for the website because I needed motivation and inspiration to draw a new illustration. It has been quite while. I get so busy these days that it’s been hard to sit down and get inspired with just a pencil and drawing paper. This was done within a few hours and colored with Prismacolor colored pencils. My two concept were the Lady Geek ‘sunglasses’ and a shirt that says Frak Off – which was inspired from an episode of Chuck.

You can get this flyer on Free Comic Book Day on May 5th at The Comic Bug.

Free Comic Book Day, 2010

Free Comic Book Day 2010

I celebrated my first Free Comic Book Day this year! I know, I know… where have I been, under a rock? Not quite. I knew this happened each year and somehow I always opted out of the celebration. Who knew what kind of important tasks I was doing instead of getting my free comic on. Ha! I think it’s also because it’s usually on my mom’s birthday weekend… but excuses, excuses.

This year, I decided to finally just go for it and my boyfriend took me to a participating comic store in San Diego called Comickaze. It was a well-stocked store; which was painful for myself because I had to hold back due to my own financial restrictions! I could have spent hours just browsing the store inch by inch.

They had a “Push Up Challenge” to win Iron Man 2 swag and VIP tickets, which I egged Jason to participate in. Good thing my guy is good natured and willing to have fun and be silly! Alas, we did not win… because nerds will do 50-70 push-ups in one minute if they had the right motivation!

San Diego’s FCBD celebrations was definitely at a lower key than the bigger bookstores in L.A. this past weekend- but at least we weren’t fighting a huge crowd and got to relax at a very cool comic shop. Here is a little slideshow of the photos I took during the event:
