Something must be in the air. Uh no, I don’t mean the leftover residue from the BP spill.

Today I received two different cancellations from two different events. Cancellations that were beyond my control. On Sunday I was supposed to have a spot at the Punk Island show. Cutie Calamity, lead singer of SMUT and maker of great hats, wanted to have an art show adjacent to the Punk Island festival. Punk Island 2010 is happening on Governor’s Island, NYC. Due to circumstances, that art show has been canceled. The music festival itself is still happening. So if you’re into great local punk bands, I encourage you to attend. As a matter of fact, I dare you to attend.

The second cancellation was for the New England Small Press Assembly, slated for next month in Warwick, Rhode Island. Well that’s not happening either. As explained on the NESPA website, unfortunate personal issues was the deciding factor. I wish Nic Carcieri all the best, and hope everything is okay.

You know, things happen for a reason, so I’m not particularly upset. It is what it is, plus it’ll give me more time for other assorted projects I’m supposed to be working on. Besides, I just got a table at the New York Comic Con 2010. Quite sure that won’t be canceled. So…if you’re in the NYC area around the weekend of October 8th – 10th, then come by and visit my table. By then I’ll have some new completed publications for sale.

Again, I apologize for any inconvenience, and hopefully see you in October!

In addition to the Nightmare show at Don Pedro’s (90 Manhattan Ave, Williamsburg Brooklyn, Admission $7.00, Starts 8pm) this Saturday, I’ll be at a few more events within the next few months.

The first one is the MoCCA Art Fest 2010. Last year it moved from its former home at the Puck Building and moved to the bigger 69th Regiment Armory. (Although I will have to admit, I kinda miss the Puck Building location.) Also note that its been pushed up from its usual June dates to April this time around. So the weekend of April 10 & 11, check out this now legendary event. Admission, $10 for one day, $15 weekend pass. Address: 69th Regiment Armory, 68 Lexington Avenue, New York, NY

Also heads up: if you’re planning on attending, you might want to get there early. Last year the entrance line went way around the block.

The next event will be at the Bronx Heroes 2 Comic Con May 1st. It’s going to be free admission all day. Main reason why I decided to do this particular con. The date falls close to the six year anniversary of Psycho Bunny’s debut. That’s the first self-published comicbook I’ve put out. In 2004, I was offered a table at New Jersey’s Hawthorne High School Comic Con. The first and only comic I had at the time was Psycho Bunny issue 1. I was the most surprised when people actually brought copies. Haven’t looked back ever since. Good times.

June 10th, Punk Island Art Show, NYC. The location is on Governors Island. Don’t have all the details as of yet. However, I’ll be sure to post them asap.

Last but not least, as they say, will be NESPA in Warwick, Rhode Island. The New England Small Press Expo is on Sunday July 18th, taking place in the Crowne Plaza Hotel. Only $4.00 bucks to get in.

I’ll probably blog about each event as the dates get closer.
