New Blog not at Livejournal. [Mar. 17th, 2011|10:29 pm]
Hello! For the time being and maybe forever I am no longer posting on Livejournal. To continue following my art, comics, appearances, and all the other fun stuff I do, you can do so on my blogspot blog which I am regularly updating. The reasons I am ditching LJ for now is that I like blogger better and I'm not a fan of the LJ format nor the intrusive ads that LJ has been posting lately. It's been fun and I hope to see you on blogspot. Thank you!

This Year I will be attending for the first time ever the San Diego Comic Con!

Here is my signing and panel schedule for the week.

Thurs.
-Oni Press signing 4:00 - 5:20

Over the next week or so I'm doing a few events. Saturday May 1st I will be signing over at Rocketship Brooklyn from 12 to 3 for Free Comic Book Day. I will be there signing and giving out the Oni Free For All, In it is a short Salt Water Taffy story I did, along with shorts by Ray Fawkes and Chris Schweizer. You should check it out, It's gonna be boss.

Then, Sunday May 2nd I will be selling books along with Abby Denson at the Sakura Matsuri cherry blossom festival over at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. I'll be there starting at 12ish in the Manga and Anime ally. If you've never been to this annual event I highly recommend it, it's a lovely time! http://www.bbg.org/sakura2010/

And then I'm off to TCAF (Toronto Comic Arts Festival) May 8th and 9th, at the Toronto Reference Library, 789 Yonge St., Toronto, Canada. I really loved Toronto when I went last year and I am really looking forward to being at TCAF, I hear it's a great show. Also admission to TCAF is Free! http://torontocomics.com/

After this I won't be at a convention till San Diego (It will be my first time!) so see me while you can.

Meanwhile I am hard at work on the next Salt Water Taffy book which will also be boss. This time it is adventure on the high seas. What kind of adventure? Ghost whalers and giant sea creatures kind of course!

And here's a painting I did of Dan and Barnabas. They really should meet in a story some day. I imagine it would end with Barnabas hurling Dan into the ocean.

So it's no secret that I, Matt loux, creator of the Salt Water Taffy graphic novel series, has been skirting a regular update on the SWT web comic for about a month now in order to finnish Salt Water Taffy Vol. 3, The Truth About Dr. True.
well now that is done and it will be in stores by the end of September.

And that means...

In order to pay for my internet sins, I've posted three new web strips to kick off a regularly updated Salt Water Taffy Webcomic!!!
We've got the next two installments of 'The Beach' story line by me, and the next strip of 'The Ballad Of Dan' by Brian Stone.

Enjoy, and soon there will be a new book in your hands.

Matt.
