Gloomy Sunday Nigh...
A week has passed since the excitement of Awesome Con Dc 2017.
Don't you just hate the days after?
Wait... I'm I turning grey? Polly!!! (I hope she finds my door soon.)
For now... The only way I can fight the emptiness is to start preparing the next event.
Awesome Con 2017 Artist Alley had many important guests this year. Starting with Stan Lee and David Tennant... and ending with the presence of old friends from previous events.
Special thanks to those who visited our booth and supported us by getting new art and new books or simply to say hi and take some photos. We enjoyed every moment.
The event was extremely family friendly, and the result was a fun Sunday with new young fans.
We talked about Polly and our love to draw. We exchanged ideas about upcoming animations, games and summer graphic novels. I'm glad to have a few more fans from whom I hope to see fan art and drawings soon has they have promised me.
They had fun and that makes me extremely pleased, moreover because Polly Mason and Paws had an important part in their smiles.
Polly and the Black Ink is an all ages graphic novel, drawing adults too who immediately realize the potential of the story. They categorize it as a great and interesting concept altogether with very original artwork and style.
Prints available here.
Books available on Amazon.
The story becomes more complex. We find ourselves following Polly Mason into mysterious and parallel worlds full of fantasy and populated with people's ideas, dreams and personalities.
Who or what is the Black Ink? How can it be stopped? Can it be stopped at all?
A celebrar o dia de hoje com todo os meus fans portugueses que tanto sofreram... sofrem... ou ainda irão sofrer com o estudo d' Os Lusíadas, mas que para sempre lhes ficará na alma o orgulho. Feliz Dia de Camões e Feliz Dia de Portugal.
Celebrating Portugal Day and Luís de Camões - author of the epic poem Os Lusíadas - Day.
Holy Pony! Polly and the Black Ink Volume III is out!
Like I announced on the past interview (see last blog post), Volume III paperback Heroes or Villains is now available.
You can get your copy here.
Polly and the Black Ink graphic novel and I returned to the local independent bookstore Hooray for Books.
Special thanks to Ellen for having me in her fantastic and always updated store again. (They always have events happening all the time - check their schedule.) I will be returning there next September with new Polly volumes.
Polly and the Black Ink Volume III: Heroes and Villains book III is coming out soon. What a better way to celebrate it than a free workshop, teaching the audience to draw their hero or villain from scratch.

My friends, there are frogs in danger right now. Today we remember our amphibian little friends and how important they are to the ecosystem and we do something about it! Help or donate.
They have a list of things on the website (click volunteers) with ideas on how we can help, like sharing or printing their posters to show at school... and educating people about it.You can make a difference.

Project: Tell a Story Day!
It's National Tell a Story Day! Read or share a life story with friends or family!
I remember when I was very young my mom read a bedtime story from this book every night before going to bed. Here you can see the story for the 27th April.
A boy sees the animals and the rain outside. Life goes on. It rains all day and he is the only one warm and dry. I would be out there with the birds and the other animals. I love rain.
Polly and the Black Ink volume III - update
Heroes or Villains is already at the printer. I will get my paperback proof very soon and the book will be available to you soon as well.
I can't wait to have it on my hands. Although it's volume III it's always new to me.
