Cassie and Tonk by ChasingArtwork
Cassie and Tonk
Cassie and Tonk, is ready to order.…

I would also like to write a bit of a love letter to you DeviantArt people. Cassie and Tonk started out as an idea for some characters that wouldn't go away, that turned into a sketch which wouldn't stop catching my eye, then it turned into a digital painting I posted here. 
We'll fly kites tomorrow, promise. by ChasingArtwork
It was because of everyones responses and comments that I ended up telling their story, the community support on this site is why this book is a reality, and I really can't thank you all enough for that :') its been a great journey, and you were all more of a help than I think you know.


Created and Illustrated by Justin Currie 
Written by Gmb Chomichuk ( Twitter:  @gmbchomichuk   )
Robotic Reference by Will Liddle ( Twitter: @William_Liddle   )

A lost girl finds and unlikely friend in an uncertain future. Cassie and Tonk is an all-ages adventure story about a girl and her robot at the end of the world created and illustrated by Justin Currie with art assist from William Liddle and written by GMB Chomichuk. It is a wide format full colour 48 page foil embossed hardcover with a full colour dust jacket.

We set out to make the book we most wanted as kids. Something that the eyes can explore and the mind can wonder after and the heart can understand. Only two hundred people have read the story and shared it with young readers so far yet the response has been humbling and gratifying.

Every time you read to a young person or with them you are given a chance to explore the world of ideas with them. This book has a big one, an important one an idea many of us don't face until we are much older and some of us face far too young. We all have loved ones and eventually we have to face loosing someone we love. Cassie and Tonk is and adventure story that aims for he heart. We love it and we hope you will too.

Each book comes with a custom sketch by author and artist and signed by all three of us. We are doing this because we want to say thank you for using your time and money and choosing this book. It is not something we take lightly.

• The story is appropriate for all ages, with a 5+ reading level.

Our books are shipped inside a bubbled mailer, for secure protection and durability during shipping.

All purchases are received and processed for shipping within 5 business days.

• For Now. The book will currently only be available to purchase from me in person at Comic Conventions, and online at my store.…
After its first comic convention season, we will be looking into digital, and wider distribution.

Press Start - Go West. by ChasingArtwork
Press Start - Go West.
Pitch I'm cooking up for my next Graphic Novel endeavour, currently calling it "Press Start > Go West"
Basic idea- its a Western set in a world where instead of guns, people wield train sized mechs :)

Cassie and Tonk.

lol after the last couple weeks of non stop work on Cassie and Tonk, its hard to believe that its actually finished. If you are interested in picking one up- I will be selling the book at every comic con I attend next year, as well as shipping everywhere in the world, details will be posted soon!! 

Got a nifty cowboy/robot pieces in the works right now, and how does everyone feel about some Swamp Thing art? Groots getting so much love thee days, everyones forgotten the original plant hero. Was a big big fan of "Swamp Thing Returns" back in the day (never saw the original until recently) and they had the BEST toys.

Been busy getting my ducks in a row for the 2014 con season :) lots of shows lined up, and I'm pumped!!
slowly but surely making more time for US shows, and hopefully I'll be making a jump across the pond for a Europe show before too long. Australia was on the list for this year, but my selfish best friends getting married haha, so that's on hold for now. 
I'm going to be at the 2015 San Diego show, as well. For sure for sure. tired of missing out on that.

Winnipeg AiKon Winterfest February 8

Smaller Local anime con to start the year off! tiny show, but great attendees and a fun atmosphere :)

Winnipeg Wonderland Anime Festival  March 1,2
Untitled by ChasingArtwork
Another Smaller con, the very first year its been held. Bit tinnier than we had hoped, but a good chance to network with local artists and plan some big plans :)

Toronto Comicon March 7-9
Untitled by ChasingArtwork
First big show of the year! was a little hectic to man a 2 table endcap without any help, but with the aid of red bull, coffee, and Granola bars, I made er!
The Pokemon Poster on display caused a massive spike in that pieces interest- good trick to remember.
I also think I forgot a piece of my banner stand at the show :( 
Also, never trust :iconquirkilicious: :iconandreatamme: to lead you anywhere. Ever. every time we go off on an adventure to find a magical Sushi place, or a mythicaly awesome pasta restaurant, it turns into a never ending quest :p

Emerald City Comicon March 28-30
Seattle Booth by ChasingArtwork
This con had a stupid amount of talent setting up shop, my area in particular felt like a Disney concept art book exploded onto the floor. so much AAA cuteness.  Loved the city of Seattle, very friendly and chill place, the weather was nice (especially in comparison to Winnipeg). One of the best aspects of the trip was adventuring around the city with friends after show hours. 
Cannot wait for next year! only thing I'm going to change is the amount of table space :0 need moooaaar!

Fan Expo Vancouver

Lil sis came to help me out :) was a super fun trip, and I was pleasantly surprised how many return customers remembered me from last year and were excited to pick up the new stuff- always nice to leave an impression in the sea of crazy talent that is artists alley :p

Calgary Expo April 24-27

Not sure where to start with how the Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo went this year... Splendidly epic.

To kick things off, they used my Cassie and Tonk artbook submission as a aisle banner, completely unknown to me, so day one of the show I suddenly stumbled upon my own original characters printed the size of truck. The best. It will be used at the con every year from now on  (I tried to buy it from them, but they like it too much, haha)

I've never had so many return customers, almost everyone had visited the booth in years past, and was hungry for this years new pieces. One of the best con crowds an artist could hope for.

After a dozen or so customers took my ninja turtles pieces to the voice cast to sign, I was informed the actors wanted their own copies, I promptly sprinted across the halls and had the opportunity to meet the entire voice cast my fav childhood show! All really nice dudes. Cowabunga.

Every day after the show Andrea Tamme and Quirkilicious took us out for crazy delicious eats, I'll be haunted by those savoury meats until next year 

So ya, amazing show, great attendees, hauntingly great meals. I'll be back next year with more stuff than you can shake a stick at!

Fan Expo Regina May 3-4

It was really great to meet you at Salt Lake Comic Con. You may not remember me because I'm sure you were swamped most of the weekend, but you took some time to talk to me about how often you traveled for conventions and I just wanted to thank you for the insight. I hope you did really well and I'm looking forward to seeing more of your work in the future! Thanks for being an inspiration to artists like myself.
