In 1999, writer Sarah Sprague spent a month waiting in line for “The Phantom Menace” in front of Mann’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood. Devin at BMD approached me about illustrating her story as a comics memoir for a special “Star Wars”-themed double issue.
I conscripted Bill’s help on inks and colors. We had a blast getting to know Sarah and putting her script on the page.
Sabertooth Vampire t-shirts, in men's and women's sizes ($15).
Brand-new editions of the first two "Sabertooth Vampire" minicomics($4 for Vol. 1, $6 for Vol. 2).
Sabertooth Vampire die-cut reusable fabric stickers($3 each) -- I picked up a few prototypes of this when I bought my new booth banner last week. They're crazy-durable -- you can wad them up in your fist and unfold them with no ill effects.
"Pete and Brucilla" and double-sided "Super Cosplay Dance Party" prints, with custom envelopes ($5 each).
"Sabertooth Vampire vs. Barista" postcards, made in collaboration with my friends at Barista (free!).
Also, barring some sort of con wifi disaster, which never ever happens, I'm now set up to accept card payments.
Can't make the show? Most of this stuff is available now on my online store.
3. Had occasion to revisit the punch-drunk Big-Ass Sandwiches mascot, which I first drew for their sticker a few years back. I really enjoy drawing him/her/it engaged in various acts of rage, disapproval and exhaustion. You may see some of these sketches turn up at their new brick-and-mortar location.
4. And finally: Here's a slice reading a comic book, drawn for Hot Lips Pizza's "Free Comic Book Day" promotion.
