I’ve been busy over these past few weeks–in between my day job I’ve been working on putting together a few books for my comic series, “Kolbee and Speck”, which can be summed up as “Two cats run a restaurant in a town based off that of Volcano, Hawaii”. My day job has served as great inspiration for that series, too.
At SF Zinefest, which happened a little while ago, I was selling handmade lithographic prints and character stickers from “Kolbee and Speck” (the Speck sticker above, minus speechbubble, was available for sale along with several other designs) along with some work from my talented buddies Mutsumi Kanzawa,Alex Babakitis, Jackie Lo, and Tony–whose last name I’m kicking myself for not being able to remember– but his illustration work is amazing. We also promoted Southtown Arcade, who’s been extremely supportive of the local artistic community.
I manned the table on Sunday along with Alex Babakitis, and we appreciated that everyone who stopped by our table really dug our work. Thanks to all who bought from us! Next time, I’ll have some “Kolbee and Speck” books to sell–and maybe I’ll bring along some “Apana” books, too. We’ll see.
