Upcoming Appearances: FCBD! Long Beach! San Jose! Arizona! Dames!

Hey Garage-a-maniacs!

Long time no blog. Hope you're all doing well. We've been busy little guys here in the garage (and right next door to the garage where Mark draws... like a weird hermit.) We're going to be at a bunch of cons and whatnot in the coming weeks. Here's your comprehensive guide to where you can find us.


The whole crew-- Tone, Tony, Mark, Chris and special Guest star Autumn will be on hand at the fantastic Metropolis Comics in Bellflower, CA from 10am to... I'm not sure when. Probably 5pm or so.

16509 Bellflower Boulevard
Bellflower, CA 90706

Tony Fleecs is the lone G.A.S. representative at the Long Beach 1 day Show. I'll be setting up with my Con buddy and long-as-shit Oni Graphic novel collaborator, Josh Fialkov.
Stop buy and buy some books or prints or original art!

300 East Ocean Boulevard
Long Beach, CA 90802

Doors Open at 10:00 AM
Enjoy the show until 6:00 PM

DAMES IN THE ATOMIC AGE RELEASE PARTY- Collector's Paradise, Canoga Park - May 12, 2012
The whole crew will be around later that night to celebrate our buddy Chris Ryder's new book Dames in the Atomic Age (which features art by every single one of us-- as well as Mike Vosburg, Andy Suriano, adorable newlywed Rahsan Ekedal and a host of others.) That's happening at Ed Greenburg's wonderful Collector's Paradise in Canoga Park. Come on out, buy a book and have a cigar with us.

May 12th 6pm-9pm: Dames in the Atomic Age Release Party, 40s Noir/Sci-fi Costume Party/Contest with Chris Ryder, Mark Sandroni, Mike Vosburg, Tone Rodriguez, Andy Suriano, Tony Fleecs, Chris Moreno, Mark Dos Santos & Rahsan Ekedal. Mature reader event, cigars, alcohol & snacks served.

BIG WOW COMICFEST - San Jose, May 19-20, 2012
Once again the whole gang will be on hand at Steve Wyatt's star studded Big Wow show. If you're a northern Californian (or just a lover of big-time comic artists with some extra cash on hand) and you're going through wonder con withdrawal, this show's the fix you're looking for.

DENVER COMIC-CON - June 15-17, 2012

This one's just Tony Fleecs and the aforementioned Dames in The Atomic Age's Chris Ryder. No other Garage Art studio guys (but you know what? I write the website updates so if they don't like it they can go screw!) Ahem.

Two Colorado boys return home to bring comics to the Colorado masses-- and take money from them.

And that's it for now. We'll have more updates on new books and upcoming projects soon! Hope to see you at one of these upcoming shows. If you're on the fence about going-- here's a look at some new prints from me and the fellas that'll be available only at these events-- Except for Dos Santos. You can always buy his shit off his website... or, I hear there's somebody bootlegging his prints at Frank & Sons. You could get his stuff there too.

See y'all soon!
