I'm busy drawing the next Mermin book, so the website redesign has yet to come, but for the time being, please follow my Tumblr linked above for news about new comics, illustrations, and event appearances. Thank you!
Oct 3, Little Shop of Stories Atlanta, GA - I'll be giving a short presentation where I show you how I draw some of the characters in Mermin, and ask you to draw some Mer-people yourself! There will be a signing afterwards and it should be fun, so if you're in the Decatur/Atlanta, GA area come check it out!I've also updated my site a bit, especially in the About section. I've added SpongeBob Comics #34-36 to the list of Anthology Contributions. Under Reviews I've added Panel Patter's look at the first 3 Mermin books. I love a lot of things about this review. About Mermin 3 they say:
Oct 25, Acme Superstore Orlando, FL - Celebrate the brand new Mermin Trick or Treat! special for Halloween ComicFest with me at this Florida store. From what I've heard this store is HUGE and they do a big event for Halloween ComicFest every year. If you're in the area, please stop by and you can get a new seasonal Mermin comic, signed of course!
Nov 14, Avid Bookshop Athens, GA - I will be speaking about my work, influences, and process, followed by a drawing demonstration and the draw-your-own-Mer-person activity. This is the perfect opportunity for those in Athens who missed me at Bizarro Wuxtry to catch up on Mermin and get their books signed! There's already a Facebook Event for this, so add it now and invite your friends!
Part of what makes Weiser so much fun as a creator is that no matter his subject, he always gives it a sense of wit and whimsy, and we still get that in Mermin, even as things start to look bad.I've done a few Interviews recently which I've added to the About page as well. I was a guest on FPM Play, a podcast hosted by an 8-year-old, and I was interviewed for an article in the University of Georgia's newspaper, The Red & Black.
Sept 13-14, Small Press Expo - The book debuts! I'll be at tables M3-M5a with Eleanor Davis, Drew Weing, Adam Aylard, and David Mack. There will be nice stack of Mermin 3 books, as well as the previous volumes, my past graphic novels and mini-comics! See you there!
Sept 17, Bizarro Wuxtry - Mermin 3 will be in stores the Wednesday after SPX, and I'll be at the Bizarro Wuxtry in Athens, GA signing copies! Here's a Facebook event for the release party. If you're in the area, please stop by!
Sept 20, Asheville Comic Expo - I'll be exhibiting at this one-day show in Asheville, NC. If you can't make it to SPX, maybe ACE is in your neck of the woods!
