While I am recovering from a root canal and other fun stuff I want to share with you that Mooving the Pencil is now availiable at Star Comics. Star Comics is located at 2014 34th Street Lubbock Texas 79411 and does online orders too so check them out. So if you live local and haven’t gotten a copy stop by and come get one now! It’s been a weird few weeks but hopefully things will start to settle down soon so I can really get back to content posts. The materials are laid out before me so hopefully I can have something to you sooner than later. Till then thank you for always being amazing fans!
This thesis project is starting to fry the old brain cells. I am sure at this point you all are getting bored too and honestly I understand that and sympothize. I can say that after a few weeks the biggest stresses will be behind me and we can move full steam ahead. I don’t want to say too much but there may also be a totally unforseen short comic one-shot headed this way as well that virtually no one knows about yet. We can’t forget that March of the Robots is here again as well so maybe I can juggle it all. Till then enjoy this pic of my losing my mind working on the paper portion of my thesis and I will see you on the next page.
If you are in the Dallas/Fort Worth area then male sure that in 10 days your schedule is clear. Meteors ‘n Milk will be invading North Texas Comic Con the 28th and 29th! I will have the last of my stock of the full color 60 page meteors n milk, as well as Suicide Sam, and sketch covers. Look for D&D studios and I can’t wait to meet my DFW fans! See you in 10 days on to everyone else I will see you on the next page…
Follow Me on Instagram <PLUG ALERT!
Today’s rant on gaining followers:
While I am working on the next part to the webinar, which should return tomorrow, I thought I would take a second to ask…. are you on instagram? Let’s face it, most of our social media platforms are getting to the point where most people care more for their own post than clicking an expression of interest especially if it is your personal view or political opinion. More so with options like ‘friend but not follow’ you can now have hundreds of people that say they are friends that clearly ignore you. Case in point, when I beat cancer only a tenth of my ‘friends’ responded. I make this a point because if such a big event where one cares enough about a friend to warrant some kind of response I saw low responses then how can I expect any sort of notable response for my art. Honestly you can’t unless you are already famous and have a huge following. With caps on numbers of friends platforms like Facebook are honestly becoming less of an aspiring artist/illustrator/cartoonist realm. Instagram on the other hand is making strides to make it more and more a place to develop the following you need. But it takes patience and persistence. If you are just someone who likes to view but not post you can do that too. Follow the artists and intellectual properties that you want to and hearts away. In just over a year I have earned a more dedicated following than I was ever able to achieve anywhere else. While it will never be a replacement for a full blog like this let’s be honest that most people won’t read as far as you have. They click to see the picture, maybe like it with a click or say nothing and move on. I appreciate those whom do read it all and thank you. I also realize you may get busy too. So for those have little time or want to follow me in two different ways that often may show different content follow me on Instagram by clicking this text link here…..
