Womanthology!!!

June 15th, 2011 by admin

To showcase the powerful and unique voice of all women who create comics. Sort of shine a spotlight on the small percentage that makes up the industry we love. And to raise money for charity.

I will be teaming up with Barbara Kesel for a story in the upcoming Womanthology Book being published by IDW. As soon as I have more information I will pass it along. For now you can keep up with the project at their blogspot page also on facebook and twitter

You only moved the Headstones!

June 15th, 2011 by admin

Well some of you may have seen a few Twitter and Facebook posts about this but last week my web hosting company switched email servers and recreated my account. In doing so they accidentally deleted the old account without forwarding or downloading information, thus losing two and a half years worth of emails, correspondence and contacts. The previous server was unable to retrieve anything. Heart meet attack!

What does this mean to you reading this?

Those of you who have outstanding commissions or have been so kind as to send me scans of sketches from recent shows here is what I need from you.

Please forward your pay pal receipt and the commission request email. I cannot work on these pieces until I know what they are so the sooner the better.

Con Sketches
Please forward scans of sketches if you still have them. That would be wonderful if not, that is OK as well.

The address is the same info@catstaggs.com

This address is now being backed up on another address so hopefully this will not happen again.

I appreciate the help.

Hello kiddies! Getting ready for Dragon Con this coming weekend in Atlanta GA. I will be doing the usual con sketches and will have a varaity of prints and original art available at my table.  I will be located in the Comic and Pop Art Alley (in the Hyatt Regency) at table TBL 64. No word on panels yet but if it changes i will post about them.

In addition to the above i will have a limited edition print as part of the Art Of Akira Exhibit.  It will be available to purchase initially at the exhibit and then later at my table.  In cooperation with Joe Peacock and ToonSeum – The Art of Akira, is an extensive exhibit of original production artwork from the most influential anime of all time. A weekend of special programming spotlighting Katsuhiro Otomo‘s masterpiece, with panels (Saturday at 4pm), presentations and a gallery of works from the largest private collection of Akira artwork. The Art of Akira will prove to be an exciting event for any fan of anime or animation – demonstrating in great detail why this contemporary classic is widely cited as an influence on creators from a myriad of mediums.

Writing Strong Female Characters

Star Wars: The Clone Wars voice actress Ashley Eckstein brought together some of today’s leading women who are movers and shakers in the various fields of sci-fi and fantasy on the “Her Universe: Shining the Spotlight on Female Fans” panel at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con.

Eckstein, who Star Wars fans already know as the voice of Ahsoka Tano on The Clone Wars as well as the founder of Her Universe apparel for female fans, moderated the panel which included Jane Espenson (producer/writer, Battlestar Galactica, Caprica, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Warehouse 13), Melinda Snodgrass (author, The Edge series; story editor, Star Trek: The Next Generation), Erika Kennair (Director of Development and Programming, Syfy Channel), Cat Staggs (Star War artist), and Mary

Franklin (Senior Events Lead, Lucasfilm Ltd.).

Looking at science fiction through female eyes, the panel discussed what kinds of entertainment female sci-fi fans want to see more of, what strides have been made, what has been missing up till now, what kinds of merchandise female fans want to see, and what female fans can do to encourage more of all of this.
