Maverix Studios: 1995-2011

maverix_studios

Late 1996, I resigned from Colossal Pictures, the only full time staff position I’d ever had. By then I’d been working in animation for 15 years, but recent job disasters had soured me to the industry, and I was unsure what to do next. After traveling for a few months, I’d decided to focus on the enjoyable … Read more

Zines!

I am only just now going through the incredible array of books I bought, traded or was given, at APE last month.

I was involved in BOTH! Which qualifies me (somewhat) to REFEREE the showdown: In the … Read more

TRiCKSTER

Here is my contribution to the first TR!CKSTER BOOK being published as a companion piece to the TR!CKSTER conference, happening CON-currently with COMIC CON in San Diego from July 19-24 this year: For a harrowing morning it appeared that my contribution was not to be included, as it been overlooked in the shuffle when the … Read more

Wonder Weekend

WC_booth2011

Last weekend was busy. I somehow managed to exhibit at both the HITOTSU charity auction for Japan and that annual benefit for charity-cases: WONDERCON. I’d planned a SOLO, full-booth display extravaganza but, at the 11th hour, I recieved a distress call from old con-buddy RAFAEL NAVARRO, who was left high and dry without an exhibit … Read more
