IT MIGHT GET LOUD SO BE CAREFUL!

I was challenged by Joey Cruz to do the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and well I went and did something a little bit different. Feel free to leave a comment, share the video and most importantly donate what you can here: http://www.alsa.org/

Excalibur Books & Comics was the first shop that checked out when we visited Portland, Oregon 10 years ago. It was on our anniversary and it was when they still had the video rental section which made me so happy because yay I could rent anime again! Through the years living here we have made friends w/the shops around here and for the holidays we’ve given them holiday cards. I know we were talking to Debbie about Wonder Woman and Mike and I drew two pieces for her. 

Now 10 years almost to the date I could never imagine that Mike and I would be a part of their Women of Wonder Day (i.e. Wonder Woman Day,) to have our work up on their walls and asked to sign and be guests at their FCBD. We are honored, humbled and happily in disbelief because they are all great people, it’s a great shop and those opportunities mean so much to us.

Here’s to another fantastic and incredible 10 years, Thank you Excalibur!

Next to making comics I do love to paint. I’ve moved from strictly acrylics to watercolors or a mix of the two. I’m running low on supplies and some of my brushes are from my college days but I still make do and make what I got work for me. ^___^ 

Here are pictures of the fabulous Debbie, Trivium and the 10 pieces now on display over at EXCALIBUR BOOKS & COMICS. Be sure to check out the Wizard of Oz section where you can see work from @chibi_mike (yay Mike!) and of course BUY SOME COMICS!!! They have tons of back issues. 

Thank you Debbie and Excalibur for your support, friendship and cheese. ^___^ Mmmm… swiss!
