Post-Con Lull

Hey! My friends won some really cute awards at the Stumptown Comics Festival this past weekend. You should buy their books and see what all the fuss is about.

I missed my Monday update, partly because Blogger has made changes to their format and now updating is pretty frustrating. Today it won't let me put text in between images, so you're gonna get a big unattractive text block at the top here, then all the fun stuff below. Sorry. 

I'm going to miss the Friday update one as well. All because of STUMPTOWN!

This week has all been convention prep. Packing books. Making new signs. Making new mini comics! I put together a 1-sheet, 8 panel business card comic to give away FREE at the show, just stop by table C17.

I'm sharing a table with the lovely Ms. Nomi Kane, and we put together a split-mini for the show, about our experiences readjusting to West Coast culture after a few years in Vermont.

That's all for now! Hope to see you at the show!!

Nothing new today, so here's something old. Back in like...2008-2009, CCS gave students to opportunity to sell their black and white line drawings to Sunrise Greetings (a division of Hallmark). I think they ended up buying about 100 drawings all together. I think they bought like 4 of mine, and then...that was it. Didn't hear anything more about the project. Then last week I was wasting time at Borders, and saw a bunch of familiar drawings in the greeting cards section!

I didn't recognize the name on this one, but it had the CCS logo on the back, so I'm guessing someone was using a pseudonym. Anyone want to claim it?

Still haven't seen any of my own drawings in card-form, but I heard tale of one showing up on a birthday card in a post office lobby a few years back. If anyone out there happens to find one, please snap a photo for me and I will totally reward you with fabulous prizes (like a free mini comic, or a drawing, or $2.50 since that's how much these cards costs)!

Frocks and Dandies, Linktastic.

Downside to handwriting my blog entries is that I can't really link to things, so taking a quick break. HEY! The Stumptown Comics Festival is coming up! Nomi Kane and I will be at table C17. Stop by for a visit, and if you're voting in the Stumptown Awards, I'm sure Nomi would appreciate a vote for her anthology Lies Grown-Ups Told Me.

Next I'd recommend swinging by booth 306 for a chat with Beth Hetland, Pat Barrett, and Ben Horak. These guys all do amazing, original work, and Beth was also nominated for a Stumptown Award!

This week I wrapped up a big comics project (that I hope to have printed in time for Stumptown) and rewarded myself with a day of watching RuPaul's Drag Race and doodling fashion plates. Sketches will be for sale at Stumptown!
