Sorry about this folks, but it’s shaping up to be one of “those” weeks and comics have to be pushed to the back burner for a few days. With any luck I’ll have this all cleared up in time for a Friday comic, if not, Monday for sure.
Only two more sleeps to TCAF!
This is shaping up to be an incredible event! As thrilled as I am to be a part of it, it’s killing me that I’m going to miss some of the programming. Looks awesome!
If you’re coming, and why would you miss it?! (Don’t worry about Mothers’ Day, moms LOVE comics!) I’ll be on the second floor at table 205 with the debut copies of Starting Monday, the newest Promises Promises collection!
And a gentle reminder to anyone who can’t make it to the show, the pre-order special in the Promises Shop ends at midnight on Friday. Get your pre-orders in so I can get them out to you right away!
We are only a week out from the official debut of Starting Monday!
I’m so excited about this book, it’s hard to sit still and type. It’s a nice thick volume of comics with another bonus selection of advice from the Baroness Knows Best. And here’s the big kicker for me; Sandra Bell-Lundy of Between Friends did the foreword! (squeee!) It’s the most amazing feeling when someone you’ve been looking up to for many years says nice things about your work.
I’d like to get a head start on shipping and artist editions this time, so I’m offering an early bird deal. Order now, from the Promises Shop and get your copy of Starting Monday, hot off the presses and upgrade to the artist edition at no extra charge! Wow!
I’ve also set up a bundle deal so you can save five big bucks, when you when you order both books together!
Pre-orders will be shipped out on Monday, May 13th, immediately following the debut weekend at TCAF and expires 2013-05-10.
Thanks so much to everyone who has and continues to support Promises Promises. Without your generosity, I’d have to give up comics and go get a “real job”, bugh!
That said, I’d better wrap this up and get this Friday comic posted for y’all.
I didn’t take a lot of pictures when I was in Vancouver because it was such a busy weekend, but here they are.
I had a chance to walk around a little bit while the show was setting up and got a good look at the Lego display. I love Lego as much as the next guy, but I almost always miss these because the show floor gets so crowded. It makes stuff like this hard to get to and harder to stand around, before getting pushed along with the traffic. Pretty neat though. The Hulk and Star Wars Lego figures and ships made entirely of Lego. Just to give you a sense of scale, I’m about as tall as the hulk’s pecs were.
Not a big turn out for costumes, at least not where I was sitting but the Star Wars guy with the Mickey Mouse ears cracked me up (I’m sure there’s a name for him that I don’t know but personally, I like “Darth Mickey”). I don’t know if it was the ears or the Jar Jar head on a stick, but definitely worth remembering.
The last one is a sketch my friend Jer did while I was on a bio-break and he was watching my table for me. I guess I’m mostly including it out of sentiment, but I do get a kick our of seeing other people’s take on my characters (there are more up on the Fan Art page, if you’re interested).
