I’ll be returning to the STAPLE! Independent Media Expo for the first time in 4 years! It’s happening this weekend, September 9-10, in good ol’ Austin, Texas.
This will be the convention debut of my new enamel pins, the Caterpillar and the Catstronaut, so come snag ’em while they’re hot! (Or if you can’t make it to STAPLE, you can buy them online in my Etsy store.)
MEANWHILE. I have set up a Feeping Creatures Threadless shop for all your POD monster needs. Shirts, bags, phone cases, shower curtains! All kinds of fun stuff. Click on an image to see all the different designs associated with it.
I need a new phone case anyway, and am thinking I might go with the Toxoplasmoids version. I mean, why NOT cover your phone in adorable bacteria.
Finally, I got a shout-out in this Buzzfeed listicle of 28 Trans, Queer, and Nonbinary comic creators. Check it out, because there’s a TON of amazing artists in there.
Okay, gotta go get ready to head to the airport. Upon my return, it’s back to penciling chapter 8 of Valley of the Silk Sky!
Perhaps you’re wondering what the heck is up with Valley of the Silk Sky. Well, I’ll tell you.
I am currently in the process of revising the thumbnails for Chapter 8, and inching ever closer to being ready to start pencils. This particular chapter was a bit more rough in the draft than some of the others, so it’s required more revision than some of the others. I think it’s just about THERE, though. I know one scene that needs some work, but otherwise I’m feeling pretty good about it.
In the meanwhiles, I’ve been posting some sketches and concept art and whatnot to my Patreon blog, so if you want to peep those things you should drop a dollar (or more!) in the can.
Also, if you follow my Feeping Creatures artwork, you may be interested to know I have a sale going on for items in my Etsy shop.
My car just racked up a substantial repair bill, so the sale is helping defray some of those costs. Hence the discount code YAYCAR. Anyhow, that code snags you 20% off your purchase, so why not buy some monster art today, eh? Why not?
I’ve got a couple of shows coming up (Denver Pride the weekend of June 17-18, and a group show at the Spectra Art Gallery starting June 23), but I’ll post more info about those next week.
