Robot Jim Army! Artwork! Live Reading! More!
Hey Robotic Lit Fans,
Lots to report. First off, the text is going off to the copy editor next week! Second, Chad Meserve has been working hard to make all the Robot Jim's. He's up to sixty out of the 136 he knows he has to make (please fill out your survey if you haven't already so we know how many he needs to make). See a photo of the unsanded, unpainted Jim's below!
Denise Devine has been working like crazy changing Jim to Robot Jim and have most of the preliminary sketches started and many almost completed.
Also, our friend Emile B. Klein is working on a portrait of Huck and Robot Jim in the style of a nineteenth century painting. We're very excited. A preliminary sketch and an example of Emile's finished work is below. Pretty amazing.
Emile is also have a launch party for his project "You're U.S." (www.yourus.com) in San Francisco this Saturday, April 9th. See the invitation below for details. You can get in for free for an evening of Art, food, and music if you RSVP. We'd be there but won't be in SF.
Speaking of us, Etta and I will be performing live at the Nerdist space at Meltdown Comics in Los Angles on April 21st. In addition to our sketches we'll be doing a live reading of some passages from the Huck Finn Robotic addition. We'd love to meet you! Tickets available here.
Lastly, it's not technically Huck related but many of you have asked us about our move "The Selling" so we thought we'd let you know it is premiering at the San Francisco International Film Festival April 29th at 11:30PM and May 4th at 4:15PM. Tickets are available here. We will be there both nights for a Q&A session.
