This!


It was another amazing year at New York Comic Con! The artists finally get a proper set up after the convention center went through a renovation last year. With that said, there were so many new and exciting reveals. Follow along as I finally get to edit and update all the pictures from NYCC 2018.


One thing is certain, TV and Video Games dominated this years Con. There was an incredible turn out of TV networks like Netflix and HBO with a Game of Thrones pop up.


That didn't stop fans from doing what they do best! Cosplay, Comics and a massive amount of geek merchandising.


Jason, Jason everywhere...


Even on opening day, there is an intense amount of people attending this year.


Every year the Cosplay costumes get more and more detailed.


I've taken hundreds of photos this year, and I will continue to post them at the bottom of the page if you want to check back.




Venom everywhere...

It looks like things are moving along in the flying taxi business. Check out the video below.

Vertical Aerospace is building technology to revolutionize how people fly, with the ultimate aim of making intercity air travel personal, on-demand and carbon free. The Bristol-based startup has built and flown the UK's first full scale fully electric vertical take off and landing aircraft. 

Its unmanned technology demonstrator aircraft weighs 750kg and flew across Cotswold Airport in Kemble, Gloucestershire in June 2018 as part of the company’s flight test program.

Living in New York during September 11th changed my life. From my tiny apartment in the city I had a view of the World Trade Center Towers through my studio window about a mile away. I would marvel at the immensity of these buildings and the fact that they were built in the 1970's. I had just moved from Los Angeles, so there was nothing even close to that size.


From this window I could see everything. From the moment of impact on, nothing would be the same. The whole thing seemed surreal and for the first few days following this horrific event, I tried volunteering, giving blood and even set up an emergency contact website for people in the ground zero zone. After a few days of watching the horror on television I decided to paint, and give something back.


I was an artist on a mission. I didn't have a lot of money to donate so I decided to create a series of paintings celebrating America and what it stands for while mourning the loss of so many people. The paintings that I punched out were nothing like I've ever done before. Basically they were Americana with a modern twist.


I began with an even theme of 13 paintings symbolizing the original 13 colonies that formed America in the beginning. Eventually I would auction all the work and donate the money to charity as a way to give back. Below are those paintings.

American Made


Angel of Mercy

So you want to have a more intense VR game playing experience? How about pain. 

That was what the Azana Band had in mind when you connect it with your virtual reality game. Basically it causes a real electric shock in a virtual setting. 



This sensory gaming device was most likely a real life gimmick to promote the upcoming Netflix Virtual Reality Series "Kiss Me First". 


Check out the videos below and you decide.


Testing the Azana Band below.


Even if it isn't real, it is one hell of a promotion.


We are truly living in fantastic times when it comes to technology and things that we could only dream of or read about in comic books. New research published this week in Advanced Materials describes the process of the 3D-printing an array of interconnected semiconducting photodiode (light receptor) devices on a glass hemisphere. 

I think you can see that the implications for something like this are pretty endless.

See the video below for more.



If you have been following my journey on this site, i am a little bit obsessed with flying cars and overall I try to touch base on all subjects I can find related to our inevitable sci-fi (cyberpunk) future coming true as it relates to the neo-noir graphic novel I've been working on. 

So far, we're moving a long, not little by little, but noticeably advancing new technologies all the time. The latest from UberAir is their search for a host city to market test their flying taxis.

From their site:

To bring uberAIR to market, we plan to partner with three ‘launch cities’. This will allow for a balance between focus and city diversity that will set the service up for long-term success.

Dallas and Los Angeles were previously announced as the first two launch cities, and we are now seeking an international city as the third partner. These three cities will be the first to offer uberAIR flights, with the goals of operating demonstrator flights starting in 2020 and beginning commercial operations in 2023.



Considerations for a Good Launch City

To help understand what would make for a good urban air mobility pilot, we have provided the following considerations:

Cities with a greater metropolitan area population in excess of 2 million people and a density of over 2,000 people per square mile will be able to support pooled ridesharing services and thus benefit the most from an uberAIR network.

Ideal cities are polycentric, with multiple dense nodes of development in an urban area, and face significant traffic congestion. A large and dispersed city layout means that uberAIR will be able to offer significant time saving benefits at speeds of 150-200 miles per hour.

If you haven't been following Cyberpunk 2077, now is the time to get caught up. Up to this point we have had a lot of teasers and trailers and artwork surfacing to show us the incredible scope of this futuristic cyberpunk game. This is the first time we actually get to see game play. The depth and detail of this game is up there.




Check out the Game Play video below and see the action for yourself.
