Dan Brereton is the first Comics Brewmaster for 2015, and just happens to be one of the most talented artists to emerge from the “creator-owned” comics class of the 1990’s. Like Mignola’s Hellboy, or Miller’s Sin City, Brereton brings his own unique vision, and style to his original series The Nocturnals. read more…

Chris Ware was interviewed by Bookworm’s Michael Silverblatt at UCLA in 2013. I can’t remember much from it, other than some really long-winded, pretentious questions from the audience at the end, and just thinking to myself afterwards,“%#*$! He draws all that shit by hand!” You can read Ware’s latest strip, The Last Saturday, at The Guardian here.
Michael DeForge put on a great slide-show presentation for his Ant Colony signing at Skylight Books in Los Angeles. He talked a lot about his process, and some abandoned, “lost” projects. It was very interesting, but kind of painful to think about, since knowing DeForge, I’m sure a lot of that work was still very good. He had a great sense of humor, especially when I showed him my copy of his now infamous, out of print(forever?) Lose #1. You can see the results of that exchange here. You can now support Michael DeForge’s art, and receive some exclusive monthly comics through his “patreon program” starting at only 3 bucks a month!
*Consider this last sketch the dessert to my 2003-13 convention sketchbook series main course, since it was drawn in 2014.
So, that’s it! I finished sharing all of the sketches from my convention sketchbook. A decade’s worth, and I think, as it turned out, a pretty neat little time capsule of(mostly) the small press comics scene from 2003-2013. Cheers! …great…now I need to figure out some other good filler material for this site…
