THE WRAP UP-- BOBBY'S VISIT TO OCAF!


The class.
I visited with the art class at OCAF, the Oconee Cultural Arts Foundation Art Center in Watkinsville, GA on Saturday, April 14th. It was a lot of fun. My friend, Alan Black hosts this class and I was thrilled to talk to them about how comics are created.

In the photos, the faces of the kids in the class were obscured at the request of the instructor due to permission issues. I have also chosen to respect his wishes int he photos I took at the event.

Alan Black, the class instructor.
I gave a brief presentation about creating comics and then worked with the students to help them create and draw a 6 panel story of their very own using their character, Binky The Clown. Binky is an evil entity that the kids have fought off before in previous class projects. In this story, Binky escapes hell to get his revenge.

Those kids are very creative.
And happy. Check out those smiles.

If You Can Hold a Pencil... You Can Cartoon
With Robert Alan Black, PhD
The goal in the class is to help you begin to create your own cartoon characters, panels, strips and have fun doing it during each class. Students will focus on cartoons while learning to draw or improve their drawing skills. Class exercises, challenges & one-on-one time will also help you begin to capture your own humor in drawings.

TODAY'S OFFICE...

I was planning to head outside to write today, but it was all yellow and messy. Everything is clean now, but still wet. Maybe I'll get out there tomorrow.

DO YOU REVIEW?


Read any good books lately? Did you leave a review? If not, you should and here's why: Reviews help books (and movies, comics, music, audio, video, etc) move up in the rankings. So, if you like a book, take a couple of seconds to leave a starred review and a simple written review like "I loved the novel!" or "This is a great book!" or something like that. Your favorite authors will get a little ranking boost and you'll have helped them keep creating new content. It's a win/win for everyone. It only takes a few seconds and the creators will love you for it!

Thank you.

Bobby

It's a shame that chasing deadlines doesn't count as exercise.
If it did, I would be in excellent shape.

THE WRAP UP-- WINDY CITY PULP AND PAPER CON AND BEYOND!


Over the weekend, my family took a long overdue road trip together. It's been 7 months since my mother passed away and my dad needed to get out for a bit. I think we all did. The Windy City Pulp and Paper Convention was this weekend, and since I was nominated for a couple of awards, we packed up the vehicle, put Georgia in our rear view, and headed toward Chicago. The plan was to not get in a hurry, which we didn't, make several stops, which we really didn't do either, except for a quick stop at McKay's in Chattanooga, Tennessee. I love that store and can't pass through without visiting. We traveled through Tennessee, Kentucky, and into Illinois on Thursday, arriving very early Friday morning.

It's a good thing we went as it turns out I won the Pulp Factory Award for Best Short Story, which was pretty darn cool. The awards ceremony was held Friday evening to a lively crowd. It was a wonderful moment and I was honored to accept my first Pulp Factory Award in person while surrounded by my friends.

Speaking of, I also got to hang out with some talented friends that I don't get to see near often enough or had never met in person until this weekend like Van Allen Plexico, Wayne Reinegal, Ron Fortier, Rob Davis, Doug Klauba, David White, Ray Reithmeier, Will Murray, Mike Chomko, and more. I apologize if I forgot anyone. It's been a long weekend and I am terrible with names so there are a few folks I met for the first time and I'm blanking on names. Apologies. The old brain has turned to pulp, methinks.

The Pulp Factory Awards were presented at the 2018 Windy City Pulp and Paper Convention in Chicago. I was honored to have SNOW DRIVE nominated for Best Novel and my story, "Takedown" from THE RUBY FILES Vol. 2 nominated for Best Short Story. 

The winners for works published in 2017 are:
Best Novel: Pulp Heroes: Sanctuary Falls by Wayne Reinagel
Best Short Story: Takedown by Author Bobby Nash from Ruby Files, Vol 2
Best Anthology: The Ruby Files, Vol 2 (Airship 27)
Best Cover art: Holmes & Houdini by Chad Hardin Art
Best Interior Art: The Ruby Files, Vol 2 by Nik Poliwko
Special Award: Pulp Grand Master: Ron Fortier

Congratulations to all the winners!

I am truly honored to accept the award for Best Short Story for my story, " Takedown" from Airship 27's The Ruby Files, Vol 2The Ruby Files was nominated 5 times and won 3. Congratulations to Team Ruby! I am proud of you all and thrilled to be part of this amazing book.

I didn't have a table at the con and only told two people, only one of whom was at the con, that I was coming. I wanted to surprise everyone, which I did. That was nice. I did hear a lot that if people knew I was coming they would have brought books to get signed so I will make sure to announce these things in the future. I still managed to sign several books that were on sale in the dealer's room. 

On Saturday, we hit the road for Cherryville, Missouri, a tiny, tiny little town that was very hard to find on a map, which we had to use since there was no cell service int he area so no
GPS. My Dad has an old Army buddy who lives in Cherryville. They still trade Christmas cards and talk on the phone, but have not seen one another in person in 48 years. Since we were sorta, kinda in the neighborhood, we planned a reunion and had a grand visit for a few hours. Hopefully, they won't wait so long to meet up again. It was my first visit to Missouri, which was neat. I got to see the famous St. Louis Arch. Although we didn't stop to visit, it looked cool from the interstate. I grabbed a souvenir shot glass to commemorate the experience.

Next, we headed to Metropolis, Illinois, also arriving there very early in the morning. I love Metropolis and was looking forward to showing my dad and brother the Superman and Pop Culture museums on Sunday before we headed home, but alas, nether of them had any interest so we left without taking the tour. We did stop so I could take a quick photo with the Superman statue.

From there, it was back through Kentucky, Tennessee (where I snapped a shot of the fabled Batman Building), and finally back home to Georgia where I crashed hard after getting home. It was a long, tiring weekend, but I had an absolutely amazing time. I posted a lot of photos from my travels to my various social media pages. Hopefully, they were not too intrusive.

All in all, it was a great weekend. Thanks to everyone who helped make the weekend possible and enjoyable. Maybe I'll be able to return to Windy City Pulp and Paper Con next year with some books to sell.

SNOW FALLS ON DERRICK FERGUSON!


Derrick Ferguson says some nice things about my novel, Snow Falls. You can read it HERE.

Here's a snippet:
Bobby Nash is a writer that has always impressed me with his versatility. You name it, he’s probably written it. New Pulp, Classic Pulp, Science Fiction, Planetary Romance, Mystery, Horror, Hard-Boiled P.I. Thrillers. And in a variety of formats; novels, novellas, comic books, graphic novels. He’s also acted in a number of movies and television shows. Just going over his resume makes me feel like a lazy bum.

Read the full review HERE.

Thanks for the kind words, pal.
