On account of being busy out of my mind with Further Confusion this weekend there is no possible way I’m going to have a comic up this week, I am totally up to my eyeballs in con work. If you’re at the con, find us in the dealer’s hall at table 82, our table is right up against the center aisle and the banner’s on the endcap. Otherwise, we will see you next week!
Hey cats – I’m taking preorders for personalized watercolor conbadges at FC. They are $30 per (as opposed to $35 at my table during the con) and I aim to have them completed by Thursday evening, so I can either hand it off to you on Thursday or you can pick it up from my table on Friday.
Just fill out this form here!
Sorry about the silence, folks. I didn’t want to make a news post without a comic post but the comic post kept turning into something that was later and later in coming and finally I figured I should say something lest you all think I’ve abandoned the place.
MFF was okay. It wasn’t great; I didn’t really make enough at my table to justify the expense in heading out there, so I’m probably going to skip it in the future, even though I did really enjoy getting to meet so many readers.
I’m kind of coming up on a weird transition with my plans for this comic; I have one or two more short stories that I want to do and then after that I’m planning something much longer — and it was this something much longer that kind of derailed my comicking since getting back from MFF last week: rather than working on this week’s comic I spent a little bit too much energy working on the long-term project. Oops! This is doubly terrible because this week’s comic was supposed to be tangentially Thanksgiving-themed and now I’ve missed the due date.
So, uh, if you haven’t all left yet, bear with me, cool stuff is in the pipeline. If you want something to keep you busy until I’ve got a new comic to post, I recently had the pleasure of being interviewed by Nikki Jeske over at Fuel Your Illustration. I don’t know about you guys, but I just love to read me talking about myself.
I’d also like to drop a plug for Thornwolf, who was my tablemate at MFF, and who has just recently set up shop at Storenvy, where she has prints, originals, and stickers. She does excellent work, go have a look!
Two new items up in the store today! I’ve been doing little ACEO-sized paintings lately and I really liked this one I did of a zebra finch, so we ran up some prints of it and I am offering them as a limited edition of 50. They’re printed on really nice watercolor paper using a giclee process and shipped in a custom-made laser-cut float frame created especially for this purpose. There are 25 available in the store, and I’m going to be hanging on to the other half of them for conventions and local arts and craft shows.
Also, since the otter, fox, and raccoon tags were so popular (seriously, I only have two otter tags left already, you guys absolutely do not fool around about otters) I added a skunk design and will likely be adding more as I have the time to come up with them. If you have suggestions, I’m all ears.
