If you have attended any comic or pop culture conventions in recent years, then there is no ignoring the craze that is Steampunk. As for those that have missed it, steampunk is a fusion of Victorian era/Wild West fashion, science fiction inspired gizmos, gadgets, and machinery, all of which are powered by steam. The end result is simply put, awesomeness! Artists/curators Sketch and Deadmundo have teamed up with Steam Lab Evolutions to present an awesome show, "Steampunk Los Angeles 2013." The show will feature musical performances, live tattooing, live body painting, artwork from over 50 artists (including yours truly), and numerous vendors.
One piece of exciting news is that comic book artist, Joe Benitez has been added to the list of artists/vendors. We are very excited to see some awesome Lady Mechanika artwork! You can see more of Joe's work at his website www.joebenitez.com.

One of the highlights for me (Obscure), so far this year, was being part of Beefy & Co's, "So BadAss, It's Good" show, which was showcased at Beefy's booth at the WonderCon. It was an honor to have my work displayed next to so many incredible artists whom I admire. It gave me a boost of confidence that my work needed. It made me really step my custom game up. To top that off, I made some friends in the process. As the San Diego Comic Con, draws near, we get ready for Beefy & Co's next custom show, "The Ghost Within Us", which will feature customs from another incredible line-up, many of which are returning from the last show. I am again honored to have my name on that list of artists. I have not shared any WIPs of my contribution yet, but until then please enjoy some pics of my BBBs. The first is my Bad Bad Ganesha and the second is my giant, standing in at about 24" tall, the Big Bad Cyclops King. Both are available for purchase. If interested please visit Beefy & Co's website. They can both be purchased there under the events tab. You may also contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am also open for commissions. Thanks!

Image Comics has released a few teaser images for a new series to come!
"You Will Answer to No One Else ... But Me"
Stay tuned for more updates!
This June, BOOM! Studios launches a bold new mash-up of Western and Sci-Fi with SIX-GUN GORILLA. Because the only thing better than a gorilla in a comic book is a gorilla with gigantic, matching six-shooters.
Inspired by an obscure public domain character, SIX-GUN GORILLA is created and written by Simon Spurrier (X-MEN: LEGACY, CROSSED: WISH YOU WERE HERE) with interior art by Jeff Stokely (FRAGGLE ROCK, THE REASON FOR DRAGONS) and featuring a cover by Eisner Award-winning artist Ramón Pérez (A TALE OF SAND, WOLVERINE & THE X-MEN), SIX - GUN GORILLA is a pulpy mash-up of Western weirdness and lo-fi science fiction unlike anything else on the stands!
Welcome to “the Blister” -- a bizarre other-world colonized by humans sometime in the 22nd century, which quickly became a hotly-contested source of fertile land and natural resources long ago exhausted on Earth. In this new frontier, a rogue gunslinger and his companion wander across a wilderness in the grips of a civil war, encountering lawlessness, natives, and perversions of civilization in a world at the crossroads between the past and the future. The fact that said gunslinger is a bio-surgically modified silverback gorilla toting a pair of enormous revolvers is neither here nor there.
“The words “Six-Gun Gorilla” have squatted in my psyche – as immovable as only a revolver-packin’ primate can be – since I first heard them. How could I pass up the chance to breathe new life into such an insane, evocative title (so sinfully neglected since its inception as a 1939 pulp serial)?” explained Spurrier, “In deference to its unknown writer, our new version has mutated into a comic unlike any other: a relentless blast of deconstructive weirdness, gunsmoke, surreal frontiers and Awesome Ape Action. Six-Gun Gorilla is a head-poppin’, civil-warrin’, wilderness-crossin’ epic with sly sci-fi notes: a love-letter to the Western genre, signed with a flourish by a black-furred and blood-drenched fist.”
SIX - GUN GORILLA #1 will arrive in stores on June 12th with a cover by Ramón Pérez and carries a retail price of $3.99 under Diamond order code APR130933. And don’t forget to ask your retailer about the incentive cover by James Harren (B.P.R.D.)!
