Movies Made Me podcast Episode 92: Alexander Hoffman

Hey guys!

I made an appearance on the Movies Made Me podcast where I discuss movies that have made me the person I am today.

If you haven’t listened to the podcast, Cheryl Jones asks each guest to name 5 movies that have influenced them to become who they are today and then to list 3 additional influences (movies or non-movies) that have also influenced them. I talk about my love for dystopian films and explain how some of my influences have influenced my cartooning career.

Free Comic Book Day 2017

Hey comic fans!  Today was Free Comic Book Day!  Hopefully you guys got a haul larger than mine.

#freecomicbookday was great! Had to get @skottieyoung’s I Hate Fairyland! #hadto #comics

A post shared by Alexander Hoffman (@alexthoffman) on

Some highlights include:

  • I Hate Image (free): Skottie Young’s I Hate Fairyland crossover into the Image Universe with parodies of Walking Dead, Savage Dragon and Spawn.
  • Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas:  I’m a huge fan of Troy Little’s Angora Napkin, so this was a no brainer to see his adaption of Hunter S. Thompson’s work.

Craftcation 2017: Flexing Underused Creativity Muscles

I attended the 2017 Craftcation Conference with my wife this weekend. While this was mostly to help her with hew new sewing business, there were some cool art workshops where I got to try out techniques I normally don’t use. Since I went 100% digital for cartooning back around 2010, I barely even pick up a pen or pencil unless at conventions. This helped me flex my creativity muscles and taught me new techniques too!

 

Left-Handed Drawing

This exercise involved drawing with your non-dominant hand.  I decided to stick in my comfort zone and draw something scary.  I was actually fairly impressed at how clear it looks.  It also reminded me that drawing is not in the wrist, but the arm.

WonderCon in Anaheim, CA has consistently been my favorite convention of the year!  This year I’m lucky enough to have an Artist Alley table, so come say “hi!” It’s this weekend, March 31-April 2! I’ll be selling comic strip prints, greeting cards and signing copies of my book!  Come find me in Artist Alley D-54!

It’ll be the most fun you’ve had in Anaheim…after Disneyland!

I will also be exhibiting with my wife who runs Nerdy Novelty Design and will be selling nerdy potholders and oven mitts!

If you’re in SoCal, come say hi! It will take your mind off Monday.

Comic Con Palm Springs 2016 Wrap Up

Whew!  Just got back from Comic Con Palm Springs.  My wife and I had such a great time.  Definitely a convention I’d love to do again.

The crowd was terrific and I made a lot of great new contacts.  I saw some panels by other webcomic creators and learned a lot about kickstarters and podcasting.  I even did a quick interview with Cheryl of the Movies Made Me podcast. I’ll share it with you once it is available.

My artist alley neighbor, Bobby Timony was awesome and drew a spot on Teal’c for my wife, who is a big Stargate fan.

This was also the first con I sold my new book at, and the response was great!  Overall, an amazing con experience!
