Tortilla #5 is here and ready to be read by Y-O-U!

Yep. Finally completed and printed up, Tortilla #5 (with color cover). This is a fun issue as I had fun doing it. I started it at the end of last year around the holidays and finished around a month or so ago. Also, that makes this the first complete comic book I have created at my new place!

As usual it’s available here on my website on the Shop page. Naturally, when buying any of my books online I’ll be sure to sign them and put in a sticker and such. Hope you dig it as much as I do!

Back from bee-u-tee-ful Paris!

Yep. Ms. Aymz and I spent a wonderful week plus in Paris and had an absolutely great time. Now, it wasn’t my first trip there (or even my third) but I LOVE that city and am never disappointed. I’ll include a few photos here (as high lights) but am keeping the rest just for me.

Checking in....

I realize that I’ve been a bit negligent in posting on the blog but I haven’t had much to report and I have been busy cranking out the next issue of Tortilla (#5) and doing some illo gigs..plus, no one really reads this anyway. And…..I’m gonna hop back on the graphic novel train shortly as well.

Oh- and finally a HUGE gracias to Javier Hernandez and Ricardo Padilla, as well as the incomparable Dr. Teresa Rojas for the Best LCE (Latino Comics Expo) EVER! It was held on the Modesto Junior College campus this past March 15 & 16 and was an incredible experience! Dr. Rojas has been teaching her classes using a lot of our (LCE cartoonists) work and it has really engaged the students. I hope to return next year!

I had a great time at the BCAF 2019 at the Metreon today in San Francisco. Big thanks to John Jennings and company for having such a great event and met A LOT of great people. I look forward to doing this again.

....the fun never ends

Not much to show or talk about the past month. Same old, same old…which is fine with me. I hope that everyone had a great holiday season. Things are humming along here at the Corn Tortilla World Headquarters (see photo) as I’m trying to close in on completing Tortilla #5 before March, as so I’ll have something new in hand for all of the upcoming expos/cons/fests etc. By March I should be well back into the graphic novel.

Stickers, stickers, stickers...

I have four (4) types of vinyl stickers available now and they can be obtained through this website. I’m thinking that for only $10 (that price includes the postage paid) I will send you to your place of mail reception a signed comic book AND all four (4) stickers. Pretty cool dealio.
