Fan Expo Vancouver 2019

What!? Already? Wasn’t there just a Fan Expo Vancouver last fall?

That’s right! But it’s back so soon with its new spring schedule!

March 1-3. (Friday 4-9; Saturday 10-7; Sunday 10-5). More info here: https://www.fanexpovancouver.com/en/home.html

Where can you find me and all of Peter Chiykowski’s sweet Rock, Paper, Cynic loot?

Right here!

Come on by for t-shirts, books, postcards, more books, and dice towers. My booth buddy Terry and I will be intermittently playing a D&D side-quest adventure for his Half-Orc Mii Grawp, so you can join us and roll some dice (or make questionable decisions) for his character.

Me Grawp! Err… Me, Mii Grawp.

The guests are pretty killer for this Fan Expo as well, and–hearkening back to my year of haiku–I wrote some poems for them!

FanExpo Vancouver 2016

fev16-website-header

It’s been a long wait (with its new fall schedule), but FanExpo is here in Vancouver from November 11-13!

I will be co-piloting the HMS Bad Idea airship (aka: booth A8 in Artist’s Alley) with Peter Chiykowski of Rock, Paper, Cynic, Is It Canon?, and Dad Joke Han Solo fame.

Like last year, I will be writing haiku for the special guests in attendance like Jewel Staite ♥, Kevin Smith, Christopher Lloyd, and Carrie Fisher!

     

I met Carrie Fisher last year, jumping her autograph queue because my dad had shown her the Limited Edition Princess Leia vs. Captain Kirk haiku print that I had made with Aaron Plants (of Big Simple Comics and Is It Canon?), AND she wanted a signed copy. I was giddy for days after that.

I won’t be doing any limited edition so spectacularly this year, but I will have lots of great poster and post card prints, as well as freshly-made copies my Existential Lop comic (a pet rabbit’s guide to philosophy) that sold out at Word Vancouver.

Peter will have his amazing selection of books, posters, and album of nerd-rock music: Borken Telephone.

Hope to see you there!


Fan Expo Vancouver

Fan Expo Vancouver is almost here!

For the last few years at Fan Expo, I have helped my friend Peter Chiykowski sell merchandise for his amazing webcomic: Rock, Paper, Cynic. This year, I am going to be at his booth (A2 in Artist Alley) selling some of my own merch!

If you follow me on any type of social media, you have probably noticed my religious adherence to posting at least one photo-haiku every single day. I started around Hallowe’en last year and haven’t missed a day yet.

Even though a lot of my haiku use my own photography or stock photos for which I have usage rights, a lot of the geeky ones use images from my favourite films and TV shows.

To sell some of these poems at conventions I wanted original art to accompany them, so I reached out to artists from all over the world (thanks Internet!) and put together what I feel is a pretty wonderful set of 15 haiku (11 postcard prints and 4 posters).

I want some of them to be a surprise at the convention, but I thought I’d post a handful here to whet your appetite.

I’ll also be selling these online (store coming soon). I hope you like them!

This poster would look great in my messy room so I don’t have to apologise to guests.

For now I hope you’ll check out all the haiku I did for the Fan Expo Van celebrity guests!

All of them are here on Tumblr.
