Two couches for June!
The first near NE 44th and Brazee, the second near 80th and NE Mason.
Happy hunting, couchfinders!
Although I still have a great time at every comic convention, I find myself with less and less to say about each. This year I’m grouping my first three shows in a single, easily-digested post. This is not to diminish my experience at each. If you met me at one of these shows, you saw that I was excited to be there. It really is a thrill each and every time. There’s the first hour of increasing worry that this will be the first show at which nobody buys anything from me. Then there’s the lunch rush. Then, from maybe 1-3pm, is when I get my most sales. I have to say, there is no caffeine as effective as selling my comics. It is a feeling that never gets old. For the rest of the afternoon I’m passing out postcards and trying to remain upbeat and engaged. By the end of the day I’m exhausted. I’ve been talking to my neighbors a bit more and looking forward to dinner. The close of the day is a mixed emotion: I’m thinking back over all the funny, interesting conversations I’ve had, ready to not be on my feet anymore, but also a bit sad to see it over. Fortunately, there is always another day and another show. So here’s to the first three of the year, and to San Diego coming in July.
Recently I’ve had the distinct honor of joining a new kind of comics page. COMIKKA is a way to easily read comic strips on your mobile device (like your iPhone, or if your cat gets wifi). Up to now, you could only read my comic strip Welcome to Falling Rock National Park here on this website. It’s a tad clunky. Comikka has solved that problem. You read comics one panel at a time. Each panel is clear and easy to read, and you simply tap to move forward or back. I’ve tapped through the first 100 panels of Falling Rock and I can attest, this is the best way to read comics online.
So for those of you who picked up Falling Rock with the relatively recent comic books and want to see how these characters developed over time, or if you are a fan from back in the Aughts and want to relive the glory days of Falling Rock as a comic strip, Comikka is for you!
Please, let me know what you think of this new service. I’m very excited to be a part of it, and I hope you have a pleasant read.
This weekend, you can meet me in Chicago for CAKE!
The Chicago Alternative Comics Expo will be held at the Center on Halsted and is FREE to the public. Chicagoland friends, stop on by.
I will have the brand new Falling Rock National Park #6, the Dinosaur Coloring Book (which was a huge hit at WonderCon), and of course all the back issues in case you need to get caught up.
See you June 11 & 12!
