Ringo2018Voting

Vote Peanizles

Whoa!!!! Thank you so much, everybody who voted for Peanizles in the Ringo Awards 2018, we got on the Ballot! I’m so humbled and overwhelmed with appreciation for each and every one of you fans out there. You are the best fans anywhere. Thank you.

Final voting has begun in the 2018 Ringo Awards, which will be held at this year’s Baltimore Comic Con, one of my person favorite conventions. I won’t lie, we’re up against some serious competition in the Best Comic Strip category: Bloom County, Pearls Before Swine, Mutts, and Sarah Scribbles. All such great, great comics, and cartoonists. I’m humbled to be on the same ballot with them. Now, it’s time to get as many people out there to vote, and convince them to vote for Peanizles. Chuck and the gang would greatly appreciate it.

Fan Art Friday – Like Father Like Son

A few weeks back, I posted a picture of Oliver by Bryan S., Of Dracut, Massachusetts. And the drawing skills and cartooning chops that we witnessed in Bryan’s fantastic drawing, are a direct result of his Dad, David S, who sent in this stupendous drawing of me and Chuck. Thanks so much guys!

Beverly Comic Con 5 – 2018 Edition

This Saturday, April 14th, is the fifth Beverly Comic Con, in Beverly, Massachusetts.

The show is one of my very favorite conventions, and I look forward to it every year (and that’s not because it always seems to land near my birthday). This year, besides my regular comic collections and fun t-shirts, I’ll have the new line of Penaizles hats, which have Oliver featured on a green hat, with white mesh, as well as a flat brmmed, all black snap-back with a grinning Oliver embroidered prominently on the front. I also have mt Cat On The Hat, faturing Grace’s familiar orange cat from her ti-shirt. And the first Peanizles children’s book, “The Day the World Lost It’s Color” will be available.

And if all that wasn’t enough, I’ll be debuting the new prototyes for the first Peanziles plushies, of Oliver and his pet, Dusty, the dust bunny. They look absolutely fantastic, and are super soft and cuddly.

Besides all that I’ll be surrounded by a huge array of diverse comic creators and artists and writers! There’s a a coffee bar, a full bar for the over 21 kids, and a dj. Phew. It’s a blast. And the best part is that it’s free!

So swing by and say Hi

Happy Funnies Fan Art Friday Everybody!

This week, some amazing pieces of fan art flying into the Peanizles Studio, and I can’t tell you how much that I, Chuck, Oliver, and the whole Peanizles gang appreciate it. You fans are the best!

So, to start it off, here’s a just , epic drawing of Oliver that six year old Bryan S. of Lowell, Massachusetts sent. It’s one of my personal favorites, and Oliver actually thinks Bryan captured his essence better than I ever could. Thanks so much Bryan! We all love the drawing!
