It’s been a good thirty-nine days for the THINK OF THE CHILDREN Kickstarter campaign. We’ve had production parties, fired lasers and played with saws. Our rewards got bigger and better as the enthusiasm for the project took over. We started this campaign out in Athens, GA at the 2011 Fluke Mini-Comic Convention. Our mid-way point was Free Comic Book Day at Criminal Records in Atlanta. Now, we’re approaching the final weekend of the campaign with our favorite convention of the year: Heroes Con!
From June 3 – June 5, both EC and I will be in Charlotte, North Carolina at Artist Alley Table 228. We’re calling our area “The Valley of Restless Beards” as we’re sitting right next to our friends Dave Wachter and Robert Wilson IV, both amazing comics artists. At the show, we will reveal the print versions of THINK OF THE CHILDREN for the first time, with a limited edition set created specifically for the show. We hope it will drum up enough attention to help promote the end of our Kickstarter campaign.
Also at our table, EC will have statues of some of his custom creatures, including Amon Gallus and Long Pork the Second. He’ll also have several ACEO cards and other sculpted artifacts on hand. Watch the master at work as he breathes life into clay, bringing golemic chaos to the show floor!
I’ll be selling all three issues of BORDER CROSSINGS, my “muppets on a submarine” comic. The third issue is finally available in print and includes a short comic I did with Errol Rich Jr. called “Myth.” I’m also giving away free copies of my first mini-comic DUE NORTH. Finally, I’ve decided to spend the weekend working on my sketching and will be selling $1 sketches done in pencil and ink. These sketches are on 4” x 4” sheets of paper made from recycled elephant feces. That’s right. I shit thee not.
If you’re in the North Carolina area, stop by and see us! We’re very excited to be crafting all weekend, meeting new people and spending time with old friends.
