Granitecon Roundup And Next Events!

Hey, folks! Just a little something to let you know about the post Granitecon round up.


First off it was a whole lotta fun. Got to meet a ton of great folks in the business, met a ton of great fans, and also see some amazing cosplay. Some of the best customs of ever seen and heard I want Saturday and watching people for all four days of New York City Comicon 2013.


It was interesting to go as a new artist with an original character to a Comicon where, let’s be honest, folks are coming to see stuff related to the majors comic characters, movies and tv shows.


So as I go to cons with my weird story of an amnesiac robot rabbit ninja (big ups to @Beej for that description!) I’m concerned folks won’t get it. Boy was I wrong. People check it out, grabbed the free stuff and bought comics. All in all it was a great time. So good that I totally collapsed for two days afterwards!


Now I’m home again getting back into the swing of things. Issue 3 coloring is underway and it’s looking great. I hope to have it ready for the Portland Comic Expo on Saturday, October 28th! I’ll be there with comics, posters, giveaways and of course Mr. B will be there as well. He never misses an event!

 

until then keep your eyes on the horizon and look for the v shaped head with the single strong eye! 

Invisible Soundtracks: The Making of an Album!

NEW ALBUM "INVISIBLE SOUNDTRACKS" IS OUT NOW ON M-TRONIC!

My new album "INVISIBLE SOUNDTRACKS" Is out now. You can get it on the M-Tronic Bandcamp page. 

I am so stupidly thrilled to be added to the M-Tronic roster. If you told me 35 years ago when I began playing with electronics and making music that one day I would release an album on a label in France I would have shrugged and hid from you. That it's a label that has already released some of my favorite music since I began reviewing music for Igloo Magazine is even more amazing. 

This album is a big step forward for me as it was entirely recorded in my new studio space Flow Control 8.0. I took on new strictures, ideas and theories as I set out to record these songs and I think it shows. There's a lot more dissionance, a lot more atmosphere and at the same time more focus on melody, harmony and a bit of a slide back to musicianship. 

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it.

Been a long time since I blogged and rolled oh ohoh!

Whoa. Hey. Where you been?

A lot of stuff happening here at CHizzle Rizzle Tizzle HQ. To wit:

BUNNYHEAD: I'm hard at work on my first ever comic book/graphic novel whatever you want to call it. As I'm writing and drawing/inking/coloring it on my own time and dime it's double duty. I love it! I'm aiming to release it in early June. "Bunnyhead: A Tale of The Corrupted Age" is the story of a lone robot, scouring the wastes of his desolate world in search of others like him. All this while fighting off invaders from the sky. It's a pretty dope tale as afar as I'm concerned and I think you'll agree. Here's the most action packed panel so far. It contains 0.00% spoilers.

 Ooohh! In yo face, Hogbot!

Ooohh! In yo face, Hogbot!

CATHODE RAY TUBE: I've been busy musically. Yeah you know it. Recently Component Recordings has released my latest album The Void And Other Structures. Not to be a braggart but it's my thirty-first album. I think. Anyway I think it's pretty badass and I bet you will, too. Check it:

Other than that I'm a walk the dog, play Fallout and watch TV type of guy. Hope all is well with you.

CRT'S WE ARE NOT TRUMP COVERS ARE LIVE!

The fantastic folks behind WE ARE NOT TRUMP have ben releasing a series of singles every week where artists cover a song and then another artist on the comp's songs. 

And I did just that! I covered "More Than A Feeling" by Boston (which I called "More ThanFailing") and then "I Saw Dracula" by the fantastic Lost Cosmonauts. You can hear both right here and now! Then buy and download it because the proceeds go to the ACLU.
