I was going to wait another week or two before I updated another art gallery. Instead, I intended to post information about some upcoming art shows I’m participating in and a small Boston Comic Con update (since it’s been rescheduled). However, I realised if I did that, I wouldn’t have an opportunity to update another of my art galleries until early-to-mid June! I couldn’t wait that long (and I’m sure you couldn’t either). So, not only have I updated two art galleries this week, but I also have some information about (and a link to) a new horror web-publication I’ve illustrated. Read more… ›

They stopped by my table at the New York Comic Con, and one particular member was drawn by the Indian-ness of the art for Chadhiyana. They felt I would be a good speaker to bring in, and I was all too happy to agree. Read more… ›
Another fantastic year at New York Comic Con is over. Met some great new people and saw some old, friendly faces. Thanks everyone for coming to my booth and showing your support. Looking forward to next year! Hope you all enjoy Chadhiyana, and definitely expect more!
