New Copper Road! 9/29/13

Bam! Instant closure! Or disappointment. Either way, here is a Copper Road that puts a bow on top of the Paid Leave story. Vote on TWC to see this bonus comic!

I guess she's back to being a woman of mystery...

Thanks to everyone for keeping the voting up.  Every little push helps make Precocious more visible, and if all my fancy dreams for next year's releases are to be viable, I have to keep expanding the audience.

Also, hey, soon the sketch blog will be more than Copper Road updates. I'm looking forward to October. It might not be flashy, but it should be a productive month. Old commissions will be finished. New orders for the book will be taken. Attention will turn to book 3. I have my last con of the year, FurFright, to plan for and conquer. New art projects might poke their head up. Relaxing! Really. This is the closest to taking a break that I get.

New Copper Road! 9/25/13

Tonight I realized I'd miscounted the Copper Roads for this month, and I needed one more. So here you go! I wish I could say this was inspired by me fiddling around with iOS 7's new beeps and boops, but I wrote it before I knew iOS 7 was even a thing. Whatever, let's go with the synergy.

Vote on TWC to see this new comic!  See it now, because one more Copper Road is coming this month. (I think on Sunday.)

By the way, this week the final push of Kickstarter shipping is happening! Special cases aside, those who haven't received their rewards yet will be getting them soon! (Soon being a relative term for international orders. It'll take a while, but will be on its way!)

This also means that those who missed out on the preorder will soon be able to buy the books!  I'll post an update when the Precocious store is stocked.  Until then, go browse the art pieces there. It's breaking my heart that so many pieces haven't found homes yet.

New Copper Road! 9/19/13

If you've been following along with me on various social sites, you'll have seen a lot of Animal Crossing stuff. Why? It's not just a hug in video game form, but also your kid/pet in video game form, so you want to share all the stories of the cute things they do! (BREE SAT ON A STUMP! OH MY GOODNESS!) Vote on TWC to see the new comic, and laugh at the insanity of me and those like me.

(But be nice. During my struggles with chronic pain this year, Animal Crossing gives me something to do when I'm so worn down I can't work any more. That's when I play it, and I'm so grateful to have something to keep me sane during those rough stretches.)

Small Press Expo this weekend!

SPX time is finally here! For those not in the now, this is an event where hundreds of the best indie/web cartoonists out there get together to sell and make beautiful things for your amusement.  With hundreds of creators collected under one roof, and admission only being $10, there is no excuse to not hop on a bus and get yourself to the DC area! (It's right next to a Metro station, so if you have friends and relative in DC, give them a surprise visit!)

I will be at table A8, with the lovely Heidi Black.  The other side of our Corner of Power, table A7, will contain the amazing Becca Hillburn and the mighty Emily Kluwin.

I suggest everyone make me look good in front of my peers by buying lots of things. I will have both Precocious books - possible with bonus front page doodles - charms and buttons (including the NEW designs), and my art card binder.  If you've been eyeing one of the art cards in the store, grab it now. It may not come back with me after SPX! I should have stuff for other commissions, such as character badges, too, so ask if you're interested!

And never be afraid to bother me when I'm at my table. If I'm working on art, my head might be down. You are encouraged to come up and look at what I'm drawing and chat with me! I do these shows so I can see you folks!

New Copper Road! 9/10/13

Instead of cleaning my bedroom, I made you a comic! Oh, the sacrifices I (and all creators) make for my (their) art. Vote on TWC to see the new comic!

New Copper Road! 9/7/13

Enough with the deleted scenes! Let's do some Copper Roading! Here comes another one ripped straight from the headlines, heh. I've avoided such temptation so far, but it's just a matter of time... Vote to see the new comic!

(And if you DC-area peeps will be visiting me at the Small Press Expo next weekend hint hint!)

Vote to see ANOTHER deleted scene!

Yes, yes, I should probably be drawing some Copper Roads, but I had a lot of extra jokes to use! This is a cheapie, but how could I *not* go there? The imagination is a powerful thing when wielded properly! (And it's super fun when wielded IMPROPERLY!)

Vote on TWC to see the deleted scene! Like other deleted scenes, this comic won't appear on the website after it rotates out. It will likely end up as a book bonus when it's time for these stories to go to print.

There is *some* Copper Road news. It was two days later, but I remembered to update the archive page with Copper Roads from last month. Go read and enjoy!

Vote to see a deleted scene!

It's a new month, which means the TopWebComics counter has reset and it's time to get your vote and boost Precocious!

Normally I start the month with a new Copper Road, but I've been bad at counting recently and I keep ending up with extra Precocious scripts. (Which is why this latest story officially started mid-week instead of on a Monday.) I thought I had everything worked out to get me on track, then new jokes popped into my head. I've already delayed the back to school story once, so I gotta edit the new thoughts into oblivion or turn them into vote incentives. And so now we enjoy extra time with everyone's favorite imaginary friend, Aloysius!

And if you haven't caught up in the comments, that's a real name that real people have, and it looks weird when written down (hence the comic about it). It's pronounced al-oh-wish-us, and that should help. (And, no, the My Little Pony owl's spelling is not how it *should* be spelled. C'mon now.)

These deleted scene comics will not go into any online archive page once they rotate out, so get your reading on now! (They are intended to be book bonuses down the line.)
