I'm having a 25% off sale on prints via my Etsy store.

You can grab the discount code via the social network of your choice!

Thank each and every one of you who came out and saw me at a con (some of you several times), or backed my Kickstarter, or just told me “good job” in person. 

Sometimes I look back on my old stuff and remember teachers and mentors who encouraged me when I had little going for me in terms of talent and style, and I just feel grateful that no one ever told me to stop or actively tried to analyze how bad I was. 

As a special thank you to all of you for your support this year, I’m running a 25% off coupon from now until Black Friday. I had a lot of customers buy prints for friends and family last year, and while I wish I could give everyone who follows me here a present individually, this will have to do. Just grab the code from my one of the sites listed above!

Dallas Comicon

The Dallas Comicon is upon us! This marks my first year of comic conventioning,
and Logan's not too far behind.  We're both set up at Dallas Comicon this year.
I'm on the first floor in the usual spot, and Logan's on the third floor, along
with a bevy of other talented artists.  The con runs May 17th-19th,
and I'll be debuting Dragon Slayer as well as few new prints. Logan's
got some never before seen prints as well! Come hang out!

Looking for something to decorate your wall? Logan and I have you covered.
You can get your hands on posters personally designed and printed by Logan or me.
My store's full of original comics (both digital and physical), as well as prints: www.etsy.com/shop/cheshirecata…
and Logan's is full of original craft items, as well as the coolest designs and prints on Etsy. Period. www.etsy.com/shop/CertifiedFre…

We both update with new items when we can, so bookmark that link and keep
checking back!

For everyone who backed Dragon Slayer on Kickstarter, packages will be in the mail
this week. I'm 50 packages shy of finishing up, as well as a mess of customs forms
and a long trip to the post office, but just about done. Start checking your mail box!

Final Day to Pre-order Dragon Slayer

Journal Entry: Sun Mar 31, 2013, 7:08 AM
Today's the last day to pre-order Dragon Slayer. There's currently 15 hours left on the clock, so if you haven't pre-ordered and plan to, get on it!
We're currently $200 away from the last stretch goal.

Please check it out here:  www.kickstarter.com/projects/c…

It's the best way to pre-order limited run signed and numbered copies of Dragon Slayer.  If you haven't picked up my previous comics
there's a tier that includes four comics and an art book, so if you're a collector, I recommend that route:)

The comics and prints will be signed and numbered, in addition to being
Kickstarter Exclusive.



To everyone who has supported thus far (and shared the project with friends and family) , thank you! You guys rock!
