Some news bytes that I wanted to share with you.
1) I’ve added a “Reviews” section and a “Comic Tips” section on the site to make it easier to find articles on those subjects within the blog. I will be adding to both sections in the weeks ahead. If you have a cartooning question, whether it’s tool or technique, please send me an email and I will do my best to address it on the blog. Also on the main navigation bar is a convenient link to my portfolio. I’m taking on new clients after the holidays, so if you have a potential project or lead for me, please get in touch. I’m also on Dribbble, should you want to follow me there.
2) Copies of PC Weenies: Rebootus Maximus are on sale until December 15th. I received a really nice email from reader Angela Mitchell, on her recent order, which really made my day. She wrote:
Got the book, sketch and sticker today! Thanks so much, I love them all.
Funny thing is that Eric gets home from work before I do, and he, surprisedly, texted me a photo of the package. I had unfortunately not done a great job of hiding the fact that a gift was coming in the mail for him, so….he put 2 and 2 together. Combined with the fact that I’ve fw’d him enough of your strips that he is now really into PC Weenies.
So, I was excited and wanted to open up the package so we could both see it and he REFUSED to receive an early gift, haha. I wanted so badly to go ahead and open it up, just to see it in person. So, I made him go into the other room while I took a look at the book. It is completely AWESOME! Gorgeous, really. And thank you for the personalization to him.
I think we are going to get many hours of enjoyment with it, and I can’t wait to share it with friends, once we are ready to let go of it :) I can imagine the guys in his dept at work are going to go bonkers for PC Weenies.
Thank YOU, Angela!
3) Once the current storyline wraps up, I’m taking a vacation. I plot week to week, so I’m hoping to wrap things up in the next two weeks or so.
4) Thank you for supporting the comic by making it a part of your regular web trawl. Thank you for buying stickers and books and generally supporting my efforts. The PC Weenies Annual #1 was a strong seller, and I owe everybody who ordered one a hearty thanks! And, lastly, thank you for patronizing my advertising sponsors, like Other World Computing.
Enjoy the funnies!
