Heroes Con 2015!

Phoenix Comicon was incredible! Thanks to all the fans who came out and all the new fans we made. We hope to see you all again next year! ^,^

But there’s no time to rest because Owly and I are back on the road and headed to the Heroes Con in Charlotte, North Carolina from
June 19th-21st
! This is one of our most favorite shows because it’s the show we’ve been attending the longest and every year it’s like a big reunion of new and old friends! :) We’ll be there all day Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

At the show we’ll be hanging out with my good friends Rob Venditti, J.Chris, Duane Ballenger, Wes Brools, Matt Kindt, the Dollar Bin crew, Chris Sparks, Eric Talbot, Dusty Harbin, Sarah Dyer & Evan Dorkin, and many many more!!!

We can’t wait to see you all at the show!!! ^,^

Doodles and Phoenix 2015!!!

Thanks so much to everyone who donated and bid on the Owly Doodles! Owly Doodle 1 sold for $325.00 and Owly Doodle 2 sold for $310.00. All told, the auction raised $32,140 for the NF Network. Thank you all for your generosity!!

Owly and I are delighted to be on our way back to beautiful Phoenix, Arizona for the amazing Phoenix Comicon! We’re guests of the show and we’ll be there all day, every day, May 28th-31st! The last two years were a total blast and we can’t wait to see all of our fans at this wonderful convention!! As always, I’ll be signing and selling books, shirts, prints, baby prints, buttons, magnets, hats, original art, Owly toys and all of the other Owly merchandise, as well as drawing custom Owly Commissions!

It’s going to be AMAZING!!! See you there! ^,^

Watercolor Owlies for a great cause, 2015! :)

Neurofibromatosis is a genetic disorder that affects one in every 2,500 births. 115 babies are born with this genetic disorder each day. NF is more common than Cystic Fibrosis, Muscular Dystrophy, and Huntington’s Disease combined.

As part of NF Awareness Month, I painted two 5″x7″ watercolor Owly doodles that are ready to frame and will be auctioned on eBay from May 8th to May 18th.

Doodle 1 features Owly and Wormy having a great time with their birdy friends and new foster doggy, Gizmo. Doodle 2 features Owly and Wormy planting some flowers for their hummingbird friends!

It’s an unpredictable disease that causes tumors to form on the nerves. Depending on their location, these tumors can cause disfigurement, dysfunction, deafness or blindness. In the wrong place they can be fatal. If that weren’t enough, NF can also cause learning disabilities, seizures, bone deformity, and cancer. Despite the many researchers studying this devastating condition, there is still no cure, and treatments are largely inadequate.

I lost my cousin, Kathleen to NF. She was a kind and lovely soul and I will do anything I can to help others affected with this horrible disease.

100% of the funds raised will benefit NF, Inc., an organization dedicated to providing support to individuals and families affected by neurofibromatosis by providing education, advocacy, coalitions, research for treatments, and a cure. I don’t do paintings like this at shows, so if you’ve ever wanted an extra-special Owly drawing, now’s your chance. There are also all kinds of other doodles by all kinds of celebrities! See the whole list here! So, bid away to help a very good cause! Thank you so so much! :)
