It's almost time...

UPDATE: The store's email system is broken, but orders are still processing. If you don't get a confirmation email immediately, I will write you with an update. Tech guy has been notified about the problem, so it should be fixed soon!

Now that I have a break from my three-cons-in-six-weeks marathon, it's time to take book 3 into the final stages! Aside from placing one last piece of art, and the final proofing, the book is done. It just needs your support to get it printed, and the Kickstarter campaign will be put together and launch over the next couple weeks (plus review and approval time). I suggest you start setting aside your money, because I am printing in color this time, and that means a higher goal than last year - but also the possibility of more tempting stretch goals should we hit it! I'm going to fold a sale of original comic art into this campaign, so if you've ever wanted to get your hands on one of those, this will be your best chance!

If you DON'T want to save your money for later, and you DON'T want to wait until September-ish for your fresh book-ish delivery, I've re-opened the Precocious store! You can get the final stragglers of last year's printing through the store - and they all will have an extra bonus sketch in them! The art cards and charm sets are available for online ordering too! Book orders in the store will close down once the Kickstarter campaign is ready for launch.

Well, I have more art cards available. Pictured are new additions to the art card family, as well as those I forgot to scan and put in the store before. Since I'm working on all the book stuff, I'll need you all to nudge me about them, as I will likely continue to forget to put everything online.

Come see me at Awesome Con DC!

It's time for Awesome Con! Sure there are lots of cool celebs and promotions at the con this weekend, but I know you all really want to go just to see me!  I'll be set up at table L10 in the artist alley - see the full Awesome Con exhibitor map here - and I will be selling books and art commissions!

Here are the artist alley hours:
Friday, April 18, 2014 3:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Saturday, April 19, 2014 10:00 AM - 7:00 PM
Sunday, April 20, 2014 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Goodness, those are long hours. I have no assistant for this one, so someone needs to come bring me food and drink!

Hope to see lots of you there!

New Copper Road! 4/1/14

I wasn't planning on having a comic for the first of the month, but a joke over on Twitter ended up leading to this one. Vote here to see it!

Since I didn't begin drawing until after midnight, I decided to got for a loose and sketchy speed run in making this. Otherwise I wouldn't be done before bedtime.  Sorry if it's wobbly, but I've been working with the loose inking style of late and the more I play with it, the more the chaos becomes controlled. The most dangerous part of this game: If I keep it up, Precocious is going back to hand-lettering. That would be a tough transition - though stylish if I ever get control. I'm five years into this and no control yet, but one day?

Thanks to everyone who came out for Fur The More and Furry Weekend Atlanta!  DC-area people, I will be at Awesome Con DC on April 18-20, so I hope to see you there!

Copper Road will remain sparse until I'm done with all my traveling and book 3 Kickstarter prep stuff. I'm still trying to find a good balance with my health woes. (I made it through the two cons, but spent most of the week after in bed.) Everything's still moving along nicely, though!
