I'm tabling at the Stumptown Comics Fest (Table F6) Saturday and Sunday, April 27-28, at the Portland Convention Center. Come on by. I'll draw you a free sketch, and I'll be selling all this stuff:
PRINTS! I'm debuting two new limited-run 12x12" prints at the Fest: "Super Cosplay Dance Party" and "Pete & Brucilla" (pictured above; click to enlarge). Lines by me. Colors by Bill Mudron. All-ages. Comes in a custom envelope printed with B&W lineart and art credits. Only 10 bucks each.
Oh, and "Super Cosplay Dance Party" (pictured below) is double-sided -- with a different color scheme by Bill on each side.
These are far and away the nicest pieces of paper I've ever put my name on, in terms of production value. Offset-printed in CMYK on nice toothy 100# classic laid paper by Lowell's Print Inn. Only ordered 200 of each. (I should also have a few uncut printer's proofs.) Here's a closeup of the paper. Here's video of the job on the presses.
POSTERS AND BADGES! Bill Mudron and I drew this year's Stumptown Comics Fest poster (at right). Bring one by and I'll totally sign it.
(Bill and I also had a hand in the Fest badges, but you should probably just write your own name on those.)
SHIRTS! I'll be selling the "Spoiler Alert" t-shirt I designed earlier this year for the PDX Browncoats. All proceeds go to them.
BOOKS! I'll have copies of both "Sabertooth Vampire" minicomics, "Santa's Lil' Gimp" and my five or so remaining copies of "Cort and Fatboy and the Secret of the Buried Unicorns."
FREE STUFF! Barring disaster, I'll have giveaways of my "Opera, Drawn Quickly" comics (courtesy the Portland Opera) and Vol. 1 of "Jaxxon's 11," my super-specific spoof (with David Stroup) of 1970s Marvel "Star Wars" comics.
I'm also moderating this Saturday Q&A session with my pal Dylan:
"A Conversation with Dylan Meconis"
Room B117, Saturday, April 27, 11-11:45 a.m.
Dylan Meconis first popped up on the webcomics scene with her French-revolution vampire comedy "Bite Me!" and cemented her reputation with dark historical drama "Family Man." Along the way she's also redrawn the "Danse Macabre" for a new generation and spun her own fable of corruption with the Eisner-nominated "Outfoxed." Mike Russell of CulturePulp.com will interview Meconis about her style and genre-hopping comics, world-building vs. storytelling, coming of age as an artist online, and her influences outside of comics.
