The show opens Thursday, July 27, at 7 p.m. and runs through Aug. 19. Bubba’s cartoons appear in The Dallas Morning News and he has illustrated six children books. Miggy has been part of the Dallas underground art scene since the early 2000s when he introduced his first comic books under the title “Mr. Zombie.” His art can be seen at bars around the Deep Ellum area. Kettle Art is located at 2650 Main St., Dallas.
On Memorial Day weekend, NCS/Texas Chapter member Davy Jones will be appearing at Alamo City Comic Con in San Antonio, but so will legendary cartoonist GUY GILCHRIST!!!!
I am so excited. The news just broke late yesterday. I have already sent a message to the promoter asking if I can have my table next to Guy…. which more than likely won’t happen, but it was worth asking.
Also on Mother’s Day weekend, I will be at Comicpalooza in Houston.
I cannot wait to meet Guy!!!!!!
Miguel Aguilar is our newest chapter member. “Miggy” brings a fun underground art style to our group as well as his great caricature talents!
