So I just read The Shadow Hero by Gene Yang and Sonny Liew for the second time now.  Honestly, its one of the best books I’ve read in a very long time.
In a nutshell, Gene and Sonny tell the story of the very first Asian American Superhero, The Green Turtle!  It was such a fun and rewarding read.
Gene and Sonny make light of many of the issues that surrounded a Golden Age hero of color.  And do it in a fun light hearted way that still teaches lessons.
I really can’t recommend this book enough.
So I had to throw together this quick sketch.  Wait’ll you see how Sonny draws him though.  Wow.
You can get it through amazon HERE.

I know with the NBA going cray cray over Bron Bron, Melo, Bosh, Love, etc….that our boy Jeremy Lin might have been lost in the shuffle.
I’m happy for him to be going to LA.  I honestly believe the pressure of the bigger market will only help his game.
And I believe this could be what…well at least what I’ve been waiting for.
I still believe in you Jeremy.

So its that time of year again.  Quite possibly my favorite time of the year.  The New York Asian Film Festival.
This year I was able to work with Goran, Rufus and all the good people of the NY Asian Film Fest to put together the first ever Poster Art Show!
This show will feature the works of Larry Hama, Bernard Chang, Glenn Urieta, John Jennings, Sooj Lee & Jef Castro, my buddy Ken Knudtsen and of course myself.
There will be a total of 16 posters in the show.  Each one at 24x36” in scale!
I seriously can’t wait to see them that large.
The artwork will be hanging in The Frieda and Roy Furman Gallery, which is located in the Walter Reade Theater at 165 West 65th Street, plaza level, between Broadway and Amsterdam from June 28th - July 14th.
This Saturday June 28th will be the opening reception for the show, and I’d like to invite everyone to come.  This is going to be a big deal for me, and I really hope I get to share this experience with everyone.
The reception will run from 7:30-8:30pm.
Plus, food and drinks will be served.
You can view the event page on Facebook HERE.
If you are one of the very few people without a Facebook account, just show up at the gallery at 7:30.
All are welcome.
The closer we get to the actual day…I can’t help but find myself getting more and more nervous.  I can’t shake the feeling I’ll be there by myself.  So please come by and say hello.

Hope to see you all there.

Hey guys!  So this weekend I’ll be over at the Javits Center here in New York with at table J3 in Artist Alley.
This’ll be my first time having a table by my lonesome in Artist Alley in years.  For the most part people generally look for me on the exhibitor floor with all my tee shirts.
And this time, I’ll just be at a single 6 foot table doing some sketching and selling some art prints, buttons and books.
Truth be told, I’m a little nervous at how this con is going to go for me.  For the most part all of my friends that I usually spend time with at cons, will not be in attendance.  And like I said earlier, most people don’t look for me in Artist Alley.
So I’m expecting a relatively quiet and lonely weekend.  haha
So if you’re around, please do stop by and say hi!  Trust me, I’ll need the company!
And if you’re interested in getting a Commissioned Drawing from me, feel free to hit me with an email now( jerry@epicprops.com ).  I’ll be doing full color marker drawings all weekend long for $20.
The reason for the email would be to ensure that I know how to draw whoever it is you ask for.  And also because at some point during each day, I’m going to want to shut down the drawing.  I actually only want to do a few drawings each day as it really is just laboring to sit there and draw while everyone is watching.
Anyway, I’m really looking forward to this weekend.  And can’t wait to see everyone.
You can find out more about the con HERE.

So I did this one page…illustration/comic for the New York Asian Film Festival’s Official Magazine.  This magazine to my knowledge will be given away for free at this years festival.
You can find out about the festival HERE.
Unfortunately the deadline for it was pretty tight, so I pumped this out in one day.  Which may be enough time for most people, but definitely not me.
So it isn’t my best work by far, but I still think it came out ok.
Also, by no means are these the only 3 ingredients needed to make a good kung fu movie.  But they’re definitely things that wouldn’t hurt in my opinion.  Also, I KNOW I said 3 ingredients…and added a fourth.  The fourth is more of add on…not completely necessary.
And besides, these are more like…loose guidelines rather than rules.
