Tiny Art Big Ideas opens tonight

Tiny Art Big Ideas opens tonight published on

Feeping Creatures monster art by Dylan Edwards

Now that the chaos of SDCC is done, it’s time to move on to the next chaos: the Tiny Art Big Ideas show here in Denver, hosted by Spectra Art Space.

The concept for the show is simple: dozens of artists have submitted hundreds of works, all of which are 6 in x 6 in x 6in or smaller. Hence Tiny Art!

My work for this show mostly focuses on the Feeping Creatures side of my creative endeavors, so look for wee monsters in the form of sculptures, drawings, and enamel pins.

The opening reception for the show is tonight, July 27, at 7:00 PM. You should come to that if you can. If not, the show will be up for the next month, so you still have plenty of time to look at all the itty bitty arts.

Cheers,

Dylan

Valley of the Silk Sky

Ordinarily I’d have posted this page on Thursday, but I will be thoroughly ensconced in San Diego Comic Con at that point, so instead enjoy this Tuesday night update.

“Can you not schedule posts?”

Er, I mean, probably? But I’m not sure how on this particular setup? So EARLY UPDATE IT IS:

I DO know how to schedule posts on Patreon and Tumblr, so those will post on Thursday as per usual.

Anyhow, here’s a reminder of where I shall be at SDCC:

The San Diego Comic Book Concern and Entertainment Emporium (July 18-22, 2018)

Small Press L-05 is where I’ll be camped out in general throughout the week. Come buy some comics!

I am also on two panels:

Transformation Magic: Transgender Life in Comics from Street Level to the Stratosphere – Thursday, July 19, 6:00 PM – Room 28DE

Also, I believe Tara will be there with Stacked Deck Press and fresh, new copies of We’re Still Here, the all-trans anthology I’m in, so come to the panel on Thursday to find out more.

Secret Loves of Geeks – Sunday, July 22, 11:00 AM – Room 32AB

I’ll also be doing a signing at the Dark Horse Comics booth, along with several other creators featured in the Secret Loves of Geeks anthology, just after the Secret Loves of Geeks panel, from 12:30 – 1:15 on Sunday, July 22. This would be a great time to snag some sigs on your copy of the book!

Ha ha, I’m already tired just thinking about it.

See you there!

Dylan

Nevermind that, you say. What of these SDCC deets of which you speak? Well, then, read on …

The San Diego Comic Book Concern and Entertainment Emporium

Guess what! I’m going to be at San Diego Comic Con next week (July 18-22, 2018). Here’s where you can find me:

Small Press L-05 is where I’ll be camped out in general throughout the week. Come buy some comics!

I am also on two panels:

Transformation Magic: Transgender Life in Comics from Street Level to the Stratosphere – Thursday, July 19, 6:00 PM – Room 28DE

Secret Loves of Geeks – Sunday, July 22, 11:00 AM – Room 32AB

I’ll also be doing a signing at the Dark Horse Comics booth, along with several other creators featured in the Secret Loves of Geeks anthology, just after the Secret Loves of Geeks panel, from 12:30 – 1:15 on Sunday, July 22. This would be a great time to snag some sigs on your copy of the book!

Finally a word about advertising

Maybe you know this, and maybe you don’t, but Project Wonderful has closed its doors. I ran ads through them to help defray the costs of hosting this website, and while the money I made from advertising never fully covered those costs, it was still much appreciated.

At this time I don’t have plans for any new ad hosting. If you enjoy my work and want to help with the expenses I take on to maintain this site, please do consider becoming a regular Patron, or giving a one-time donation via Ko-Fi (they suggest $3, you can put in whatever dollar amount you like).

Cheers,

Dylan

Valley of the Silk Sky page 92 is up! Oh, and don’t mind that thing in the corner. I’m sure it’s nothing:

And that’s a wrap on Chapter 9! Go here if you want to read the whole chapter in a single sitting.

If you don’t want to wait, you can, of course, always pick up the collection of Part Two, which includes chapters 6-10 in their entirety. Available in print and digital editions, or on ComiXology.

During the break, Patrons who pledge $1 or more will get to peep some concept art for a Valley of the Silk Sky short story I’m working on for an upcoming anthology. Neat!

See you soon,

Valley of the Silk Sky turns 90 pages old, and is covered in weird growths. Goggle at them here:

Meanwhile, the digital edition of Valley of the Silk Sky: The Long Run Part Two is now available on ComiXology! If that’s your preferred platform, you need wait no longer.

I’m still recovering from TCAF (jetlag plus travel shenanigans), so that’s about it for this week. Next week, more VotSS, and WisCon news!

That Patreon post has a little more info about said weird plants, so click through if you desire more knowledge (Patreon posts of VotSS pages are locked Monday-Wednesday, and become available to the general public on Thursday).

But also, TCAF is nigh!

If you’re going to be at the Toronto Comic Arts Festival this weekend (May 12-13, 2018), you should come find me at table 218 for the convention debut of the Valley of the Silk Sky: The Long Run Part Two print book!

I’ll also be on the Adventure Teens panel on Sunday at 2:00 PM, wherein we’ll talk about why we let our characters run around without adult supervision.

I’m excited for to return to Toronto, even if it means I have to get up ridiculously early for my flight tomorrow. See you there!

Cheers,

Dylan
