Spent this past weekend at Stumptown Comics Fest in Portland. Had a great time and got to meet so many cool people interested in the book and my stuff. Big thanks to everyone who came by - I sold all the books I brought with me, so it looks like people are digging it :) Everyone was super nice an patient while I did a little sketch in the book to personalize each and every copy as my way of thanks. I appreciate the support so much and promise to get faster!

Step One: Prototypes
Step Two: Mass Production!
At Wondercon, Chester proved himself worthy of his own stuffed doll. In spite of all my efforts, this little piggy seemed to be the real bread winner of the weekend. By 3pm on Saturday I was completely out of the papercraft Chesters and had lots of inquiries about making "actual toys" of the lovable little guy.
So here's our first step. In lieu of a lucrative licensing deal, wifey and I handmade two plush dolls of Chester last night :)
Our mission is to have a bunch of these ready for Stumptown Comics fest up in Portland next weekend and see if anyone likes them.

Kicking off the Wondercon weekend, we got advance copies of Amity Blamity Book One from my publisher - SLG Publishing! They express shipped a bunch of copies from Northern Quebec that arrived just in time for a great party at Mission Comics and Art as well as for Wonderon!
Big thanks to everyone who came out to the party and the convention. I had a great time and was so happy people seemed to dig the book and prints and sketches :)
