Check it out on and WVOX1460am, broadcast at 12:30AM this Saturday. So, you can hear my New York accent live on the airwaves. In the meantime, I’ll try my best not to make an ass out of myself.

Bronx Heroes Comic Con 2 Recap/Part I

This past Saturday was the second annual Bronx Heroes Comic Con. The free event itself took place at Hostos Community College. Although this comic con was located in The Bronx, in actuality, it really was only two subway stops away from Manhattan’s 125th Street.

The Bronx Heroes Comic Con 2 very small compared to last month’s MoCCA Art Fest, yet still fun. Sometimes you can enjoy yourself more at the more low-key cons. Really wasn’t expecting much from this event, so I was surprised about the general reaction to my stuff. Made some sales and received plenty of compliments. The best feedback I heard during the day was these two young girls. One of the girls was an animation student over at Hostos. They were delighted that the women I drew ‘had curves, just like real women.’ Whenever I hear a comment such as this, I’m ever so delighted. For far too long women are brainwashed to believe that if we’re not skinny pretty perfect specimen, then we cease to exist. It just proves that you don’t have to illustrate women to stereotypical shallow standards.

Scene From The Bronx Heroes Comic Con 2. Saturday May 1st, 2010.

The best part of this particular comic con was, believe it or not, the space between and behind the tables! That was such a great feeling, not to be so cramped in. Like MoCCA was fun, but there was so little space between tables. It was so packed at MoCCA for the artists, that if suffering from acute claustrophobia, I guarantee that you would have been calling your therapist the next day. Don’t get me wrong, MoCCA is still one of the best NYC cons. Yet the seating was getting a little uncomfortable. There was none of that at the Bronx Heroes comic con. Not only did the artists have plenty of table space to showcase their wares, but you could put your display sign safely behind your chair. No worries, no stress about knocking anything over.

My Display For The Bronx Heroes Comic Con 2, Sat. May 1st, 2010

Of course, there wouldn’t be a comic con without a mishap. Well in my case anyway. Right before a planned event, something always seems to happen. This time I had this homemade display sign showing off some illos created last year. So far its been used in the Welcome To My Nightmare 2 show in Brooklyn, and at the MoCCA Art Fest 2010. Usually before each show I switch the panels around a bit. What I usually do is hang this sign up on this black artist easel. Not surprisingly, in my attempt to arrive to this con on time, I left one of the main easel parts at home. Basically the part which connects and holds everything together. Luckily Ray Felix, one of the guys who put this con together gave me a wooden stick as a substitute. The crowd had no idea that this display was being held together by yards of duct tape. It was so beyond low brow, but hey, it worked.

Jim Salicrup @ Bronx Heroes Comic Con 2, Sat. May 1st, 2010

Other guests featured in Artist Alley had mostly been in other local NYC comic cons, such as Big Apple and MoCCA. Mostly local artists and writers connected with the NYC comicbook culture. To my right from the table, Allison Braun was selling her comics. To my left, Mark Mariano was selling his children’s books. Newspaper strip cartoonist Irwin Hasen was selling Dondi books, but left early after his panel discussion. After all, he is getting on in years.

Bronx Heroes Comic Con – Today!

If you’re not doing anything on Saturday, come on down for the Bronx Heroes Comic Con.

Pardon for me waiting until last minute to post about this event. I do it this way ’cause I’m so organized. *A-hem*

Anyway, this event is taking place over at Hostos Community College, and it’s free. Hours are from 12pm to 5pm. Here’s a link with more info:

I will be selling the latest issue of Babalon Babes No. 4 (Astrology Issue), which I sold out at MoCCA Art Fest 2010 last month! Also on hand will be Psycho Bunny issues, the IF-X anthologies I did covers for, and other goodies. Will also be doing sketches.

It will be the six year anniversary since I started self-publishing my own comics, under WitchesBrewPress.

If I don’t see you at Hostos, then I’ll see you at the Punk Island Art Show happening next month.

MoCCA Art Fest 2010 Trades

One of the cooler things about being an exhibitor at comic cons is the chance to trade with other comic book creators.

Here’s three of the trades I did this past weekend during the MoCCA Art Fest 2010 con.

Simon Snootle and Other Small Stories by Lorin Morgan-Richards.

This gorgeous hand-made book was the first trade made at the MoCCA fest. Los Angles based artist and musician Lorin Morgan-Richards recognized me from Facebook. The more I go through this item, the more I fall in love with it. His music’s pretty neat as well. I’m already a fan.

Ling Master # 3 by E.J. Barnes

E.J. Barnes is a Cambridge, Massachusetts based cartoonist and a regular at small press cons. Plus she’s a really nice lady. Originally met her at a MoCCA Fest back in 2006.

Earaches and Eyesores # 2 by Justin Melkmann

Justin Melkmann is in the popular local NYC punk band World War IX, and a cartoonist.

MoCCA Art Fest 2010 Pics

Being an exhibitor at the MoCCA Art Fest 2010 turned out to be better than what I had expected. Not only did I get to sell Babalon Babes No. 4 (The Astrology issue), but had fun promoting as well. Here’s a few pics from this past weekend.

Xamie Hernandez, one half of the artist extraordinaire team from the Love and Rockets comics. Here he is posing with my boyfriend. Guess where me and Ben found this Stussy shirt. Queens Mall baby! We stumbled upon this shirt by accident at Yellow Rat Bastard, which is no longer at that mall. Ben brought this tee sometime last year. True geek never goes out of style.
