Next month, Saturday March 28th, 2015 will be the annual Welcome To My Nightmare event. Since 2009, the yearly Welcome To My Nightmare affair has featured underground bands and artists. I’ll be showing and selling my work at this one night event, so be there or be…b-square!

This past Friday was the benefit for Punk Island, taking place in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. There were bands which afterwards was an art auction. Local artists donated artwork to raise money for Punk Island 2013.

So not only have I not managed to make it to any of the Punk Island shows, I almost didn’t make it to this event. You see, I was exhausted and ready to call it a night. Yet my friend convinced me to go. Plus I had flyers to pick up and promote for the Welcome To My Nightmare show next month. Missed the bands but arrived just in time for the auction.

I had donated a mixed medium painting created seven months ago titled Rev. Wodka. The acrylic and glitter painting was originally on sale at my Esty site, but I figured it would would be better off at the auction. In theme with all things Punk. So off went Rev. Wodka, who found a new home that night. I also included an old mini issue of my comic Psycho Bunny.

There were lots of awesome artists who donated their time and talent to this benefit. There were original signed and numbered concert poster prints by Joe Simko, who did  illustrations for bands like The Misfits and GWAR. Original concert photography was also donated to the cause. The best was saved for last, when Justin Melkmann, comic book artist and member of the band WW9 donated a personal letter from G.G. Allen to the auction.

Here’s a few other photos from that night. Can’t say I know of the exact date of Punk Island itself, but it’s usually free and takes place during the summer on Governor’s Island. Best bet is to do a search for info regarding the exact time date and location for the event.

February here already? Time flies whether or not you’re having fun.

Last night was fun though, and here’s a brief review of last night’s event. Titled “This Is What We Do,” it took place over at the HillTap Tavern located in Elmhurst, Queens, NYC. The second annual event was created and hosted by fellow creator Sergio Zuniga. (Website: http://www.beernutcomics.com/)

Still haven’t blogged about my experiences from the New York Comic Con 2010. It was a pretty intense weekend, have to admit it. And no, I won’t blog about the NYCC 2010 yet ’cause I’ve seemed to have misplaced the disc with all the photos. Fresh from the farm however, are pics from the most recent past weekend.

On Saturday, went to the King Comic Con in Brooklyn. Much smaller in scale than the NYCC, but still worth checking out. Personally, I prefer the smaller indie cons, mainly because they focus more on the creators, i.e., artists, writers, etc. Here’s some photos taken with my trusty cell.

I don't know who this guy is, so if anyone can send me info, that will be greatly appreciated. Met these two as I was talking to Zorikh. They had a table at King Con. The guy wearing the hat warned me that if I saw his happy face, I should be worried.
