This past Saturday was the second annual White Plains comic con. Like last year, this comic con took place inside the White Plains public library, although next year it will move to a different location.

The second annual White Plains comic con had more artists than the previous year, and it’s purpose was the same – to raise awareness for anti-bullying causes. The con had plenty of help from teen volunteers, all who attend a local White Plains high school. Other artists and writers included Jerry Craft, Alitha E. Martinez, Ray Felix, David Quinn, and many others, to be found on the Bronx Heroes comic convention website.

Here’s photos from the past weekend.

Continuing to play long awaited catch-up, here’s a review of the last comic con I did. On May 16th, I took part in the White Plains Comic Con 2015. It was held at the White Plains public library at 100 Martine Avenue. It was nice to take a day trip out of NYC for the day, so off on the Metro-North we went.

Somehow I had trouble getting up due to my busy schedule, so I arrived late. Yeah, I know, excuses, excuses, typical artist standard time. However, I did manage to arrive at the White Plain Library, which held the free comic con. The moment the doors open, the entire library was packed. The crowds got to see indie artists, panels and a tiny bit of cosplay. The purpose of this comic con was to raise awareness for bullying. Being bullied myself in the past, this was a good cause. While I managed to overcome my experiences, unfortunately, not everyone is able to. Some carry this burden way after the bullying has ended, therefore leaving an effect years after onto someone’s psyche. So I contributed this sketch, drawn during the comic con.

As for myself, I didn’t much stuff, as I’ve been mainly focusing on my new latest self-published titles. The latest Psycho Bunny mini-issue and my collection of sketches in Pin-Ups.

However, to my surprise, my last issue of Babalon Babes still sold. Someone brought the astrology themed issue.

Issue number 4 of Babalon Babes. Astrology issue. Babalon Babes has since been discontinued, but you can still order copies through WitchesBrewPress, or Etsy.

Couldn’t help but notice a vendor selling back comic book issues and vintage trading cards. These trading cards brought back memories. Especially since I used to collect Wacky Packages stickers.
