This Weekend! Baltimore Comic-Con!

The weekend is nearly upon us and with it comes Baltimore Comic-Con! Attendees will want to check out (and hopefully purchase) a copy of the newly released Act-i-vate Primer! It's a great opportunity to get it before it's official release date of 10/14 and have it signed and personalized by a number of Act-i-vate creators. Mike Cavallaro, Jim Dougan, Michel Fiffe, Simon Fraser, Dean Haspiel, Jennifer Hayden and myself will all be there! But, that's not all!

Also premiering this weekend during the Act-i-vate panel on Sunday, October 11th is the Act-i-vate Experience documentary. Here are the details:

2:00-3:30 The ACT-I-VATE Experience Members from ACT-I-VATE, the premiere webcomix collective, featuring Dean Haspiel, Mike Cavallaro, Jennifer Hayden, Tim Hamilton, Joe Infurnari, Simon Fraser, Kat Roberts, Michel Fiffe, and Jim Dougan, will discuss their new print anthology, THE ACT-I-VATE PRIMER (which debuts at the show), and will also debut, "The ACT-I-VATE Experience," a 32-minute documentary produced by Culture Pop Productions' Seth Kushner (Graphic NYC) and Carlos Molina.

See you there!

Graphic NYC Profiles Joe Infurnari

Graphic NYC, the blog profiling New York City's graphic novelists, has posted their profile on yours truly. The post features more stunning photography from my recent shoot with Seth Kushner. It also has  a brilliant and insightful essay by comics historian and journalist, Chris Irving. Working with both of these gentlemen has been a delight and I'm so thankful to have had this opportunity. Here's just a taste:

Daring to be Different with Joe Infurnari:


“I just figured that you’re not going to get anywhere by doing something that everybody else is doing or doing something like everybody else; so do something that’s retarded enough that nobody would dare,” Joe Infurnari says from his drawing table. “The challenge is to make something that sounds nuts actually work. If you can do that then you have something.”


Seth Kushner's Graphic Novelists: Day 49

Thursday evening I had the pleasure of being one of the subjects for Seth Kushner's Graphic Novelists series of photographs. Seth is the amazing photographer for the book, The Brooklynites, and has photographed numerous luminaries and celebrities for an extensive list of publications. His resume is impressive as are his gorgeous photos. It's been a real privilege to work with him and the above photo from our shoot is now up on his blog. While you are there, please take a look at any number of the other eyepopping photographs available there or on his site.
