Earlier this week I read an interesting article that quoted Google CEO Eric Schmidt. In it, Mr. Schmidt claims that at some point in the future, people will need to change their names to distance themselves from their social networking past. I’m a firm believer of conducting oneself in a professional capacity at all times while online. The Internet has a funny way of remembering things…
Today’s strip marks a rare appearance by the Weiner’s dog (*ahem*) Robo. It’s been a long time since he’s been in a strip, and probably the first time in several years we’ve seen him say something. I like Robo, and I hope to find a way to develop his character so he can become an integral member of the PCW cast.
And Now, Dear Readers, I Have a Favor…
I’ve raised enough funds to travel to Intervention on September 10th – 12th (Thank you to everyone who offered their support!). My last convention of the year is the UP Fair, held in Lexington, Kentucky. I need your help to raise enough funds so that I can attend this event. The UP! Fair is free to the public. The goals of this Fair are to promote the works of independent creators, inspire the next generation of authors and cartoonists, and provide resources and learning opportunities for other independent creators. To quote the UP! Fair website:
….local events like ours are crucial to promoting independent content creators, and that sharing information is crucial to elevating an art form.
The UP! Fair is going to be a great event because it was specifically created for independent cartoonists BY independent cartoonists. I want to be there to deliver workshops and help promote the medium I truly enjoy. My funds are tight, as is wont for an artist / teacher, so I need your help.
How can you help?
The easiest way is to purchase your copy of “PC Weenies: Rebootus Maximus”, my first print collection. The Artist Edition comes autographed, signed, numbered and includes a personal PCW sketch unique to your book. It also includes the PCW / Uncubed Sampler #2, an inked sketch of your favorite PCW character on bristol. If you’ve been waiting for an opportunity to buy the book, now’s the time.
If you already have the book and you’d like to pledge your support, you can do that via the “Donate” button on the right sidebar of the website. I will kick in some exclusive desktop wallpapers featuring some new “vehicles in black” I’m creating. These will be exclusive only to donators, and will not be posted on my website. You can see a few of my renderings here and here.
If you donate $30 you get to choose a classic car for me to digitally draw and ink for your very own desktop wallpaper. If you donate $50 or more, you’ll get a stamped and numbered print of your custom car to go along with your wallpaper on 8.5″ x 11″ 100 lb matte cardstock.
As always, I couldn’t do this without your support. The UP! Fair will be my last show for the year. Please help me get there!
