Almost Ready!

Hello,

Thanks for backing the project.  Been back for about a month now & I'm trying to get all the stuff completed.  Things got slowed down a bit by Christmas & I don't have the buttons in yet & that's kept me from getting some of the packages out, but they will hopefully be in early next week.  I'm also planning on completing the digital version of the comics from the residency in the next couple of days for those of you who backed for the complete digital comic collection.  If you backed for a sketchcard or painting, but haven't made a selection yet, give me a shout & I'll get you set up for that.

The ebook from the residency is shaping up to be just shy of 300 pages.  I still need to get it proof read by a couple of folks & clean up some of the artwork a little before getting it out to you; so it'll be a couple of weeks until it's ready, but it should be available fairly soon.

Thanks for your help, things wouldn't have been possible without you.

Thank You!

Thanks for your interest in & support of my work.  In about an hour is my closing show of the residency & then tomorrow I start my trek home & Sunday I'll do a one day exhibit of the work in my home town as part of an art crawl.  Next week I'll start the work on the ebook & getting the buttons made & getting the sketchcards & paintings ready for those of you that backed at those levels.  Hoping to get everything done before Christmas so I can get my mind rolling on more projects.  Thanks for your help, it really means a lot to me.

More Stuff & Public Appearances

Hey,

Thanks for your interest in supporting my work, it means a lot to me.  I've been trying not to be overwhelming in the updates, so I decided to start putting my images & such up on a special page on my website instead.  On the same page it has some links to a couple of events where I'll have the art on display before shipping it out to you all (one in Pittsburgh on November 28 & one in Raleigh on December 2).  Getting a lot done & feeling good about the time spent up here.  Thanks for helping to make it possible.

Working Hard

Hello,

I hope all is going well.  I caught a cold up here in Pittsburgh, but I'm trying my best not to let it effect my work too badly.  I've got 42 of the sketchcards done so far & I completed two stick figure mini-comics & I have a bunch of drawings I've been doing for a collaboration with my son in what I refer to as my "Sun Ra style" (stylized lightboxing basically, see a sample below). So a lot of work getting done & I have a workshop in a couple days teaching parents how to help their kids make comics & then on Friday I'm doing a reading of my comic REH.  Also I've been doing some photography stuff.  It's a pretty productive month & I'm really happy with how much it looks like will happen in the course of a month.  Maybe it will help me to figure out how to push myself to make this much content every month from here on out.  We'll see.

Oh, we passed the $500 stretch goal, so there will be a five button/pin set going to anyone backing for a shirt, painting, or comic box set.
