So yeah, you read the title! you see the image! Unlike the larger, screen print versions, these mini prints are…well..smaller, and each one has a hand drawn knife scrawled right on it, decreasing the value significantly!
Are you going to The Emerald City Comicon this coming weekend? Really? SO AM I! Wow, what are the chances, huh? We should be best friends or at least complete strangers separated by the distance of a convention booth.
And what a fine booth it shall be: THE TOPATOCO BOOTH. I know, it’s not my usual SLG booth, but SLG won’t be there, and the Topatoco people were nice enough to let me squat with them for a bit.
I also have a discussion panel on Saturday at 5PM in room 3AB, but it’s going on at the same time as George Takei’s panel, so if I’m not at my own panel just go ahead and ask my empty chair questions and it’ll probably be way more tolerant than I would have been!
As usual, I’ll have some prints sewn into my body and it’ll be up to you to use the specially supplied tongs to extract them. I might also just be carrying them around in a little case, so if you don’t see the tongs you’ll have to assume they’re in the case.
It’ll be kind of a NNY-sack since it’s just jammed full of JTHM related stuff, the Floor Damage Prints and some Johnny headshots I printed up since people seem to like having photos signed.
The Floor Damage prints’ll eventually go up for sale on $Z.99 and are $60. I’m not sure about the headshots, yet. I’ll have around 20 of those in my insides/carrying case, and those’ll be 25 bucks since they’re smaller than my usual mini prints. Each one will have a hand inked cockroach on it. Could that roach be Mr. Samsa? I DUNNO…it kind of looks like him, but then again he looks exactly like a regular cockroach. Pretty mysterious. Either way, buy a print and I’ll maybe give you one of those little Z? stickers I had made. WHAT A BARGAIN? (not really a bargain)
As four of you may know, I’ll be at the Comikaze Expo starting tomorrow, November 5-6. I’m not entirely sure what I’m doing there, but my friend talked me into going and now I kind of hate him, so that’s pretty cool. I’m a “guest of honor” at the thing, and that means I get to sleep with any man’s wife first on the day of their wedding.
Anyhow, as is my way, I’ll be there with a fresh clutch of customized mini-prints, just out of sight (stuffed down my pants).
This time around it’s a print with robots and an inventor lady who, I’m just gonna guess, makes robots. Each print is signed and has a custom, leaky, floating, disembodied robot head inked right onto it by one of my body parts (I’m not telling! HEEHEE!)
Same setup as the past couple of times I’ve done this: I’ll have only 30 prints on me, each print is $35 and can be purchased after delivering unto me the password. The password is secret, so I will tell it to you right now.
The password is “AREN’T ROBOTS JUST THE BEST? BEEP BOOP BOOP.”
What isn’t necessary, but would be greatly appreciated is if you could say it with a kind of easy going, souther drawl as if you were sipping a mint julep and just sitting on that there porch of yours, waiting for the kids to come home only they’ll never come home because you don’t have any only you’ve just gone mad from loneliness and old age.
Also, on the Beep Boop Boop part, maybe you could do a little robot dance. Yeah. Yeah…you know what I like.
If you’re planning on going, I’ll be there Saturday and Sunday signing THINGS and being on panels where I’m just confused and mumbling. CHECK IT OUT!
First, my Steakfist’s Escape Into Dimension 10 giclee print is now up on Gallery Nucleus’s webstore. Thanks to everyone who showed up for my signing at their booth to get pick one up. I like to see what sort of people are attracted to the work I do, and that signing made me pretty certain that I don’t like ANY OF YOUR FACES. Thanks! Buy prints, you horrible-headed bastards.
Second, The Bolt Cougher giclee print is now cheaper. I had been hearing stories from people who were buying prints and not having money left over to feed their children, and was feeling pretty bad about that.
Here’s the print! I’ll be exchanging 30 of these for shady favors (or $35) at Comicon starting on Friday. Same deal as previous cons, I don’t sell this to anyone unless they utter a particular phrase, in this case “I SHORE WUHD LAHK ONE’A DEM PRINTS.” I’d be glad to hear it in a really nice southern drawl.
Each 8″x 11″ print is signed and has a hand-drawn knife on it, each of them unique to the print. They are hand printed in that I used my hand to turn on the printer.
These little test prints generally sell out at the conventions in a day or two, so they’ll probably not be available afterwards unless some filthy type puts them on ebay for more than I’d wanna pay. This is a trial image for a larger screen print I’ll do, though the image itself will likely be altered a bit for the final version and won’t have the customized aspect.
If you need more info on my comicon doings, read this older post and understand everything!
It’s that time of year again, a time when a man’s fancy turns to bitching about how sweaty everyone around him is and wearing sandwich bags on his hands before shaking anyone’s hand.
Comicon 2011 is upon us once again, people, and that’s just bizarre, isn’t it? How is it possible for the same year’s comicon to just keep repeating itself? I don’t know, but that’s not my problem. Here’s what’s going on there as far as my involvement goes.
1. Professionally (I’m a professional, ya see) I’ll be attending from Friday the 22nd to Sunday the 24th. For the most part I’ll be at the Slave Labor Graphics booth (Booth 1815), but I might be signing at the Gallery Nucleus booth (Booth 2235) on Friday or Sunday as well. Non-professionally, I am at the convention center year round, as I live in the walls like a stinking rat person, hoarding garbage and eating the end cap pieces of hot dogs.
2. NEW JTHM SHIRT.
This one’s just in time for Comicon, so if you’re not there to get one from Slave Labor Graphic’s booth, there’s something just wrong with you and I’m not even sure why I’m still talking to you. This shirt uses the J’s Not J print image, only in shirt form with a modified color palette. These are on a truck heading to San Diego and I haven’t even seen them yet, so I hope they’re alright. Even if they’re not alright, you should probably bring a garbage bag to fill up with all the shirts you’re gonna buy.
3. STEAKFIST’S ESCAPE INTO DIMENSION TEN giclee print.
Gallery Nucleus is going to doing a new print of mine, and thought it would be nice to have me sign it at its premier at the San Diego Comicon. I’ll probably make them regret thinking anything will ever be nice ever again, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t stop by on Friday the 22nd, 1PM (for now) and grab one to get signed. Or just grab one, really, and don’t get it signed. Just buy it, don’t make eye contact with anyone, and just sorta skulk off without a word. That’d be pretty good too.
Signing these for Gallery Nucleus at their booth (2235) on Friday at 1-2 PM. It’s a fast signing, so try to make it! Might add another signing for these on Sunday, but not sure yet.
4. STRANGE TALES PANEL: FRIDAY the 22nd.
This is just a panel with a few of the artists that did work on Marvel’s Strange Tales anthologies. I’ll be there mumbling incoherently about my experience working on the MODOK and Wolverine stories I did for them. I will have some SHOCKING revelations (psst: no I won’t), so don’t miss it! This is the official blurb from the program guide:
6:00-7:00 A Strange Tale of a Panel: Indie Creators on Marvel’s Strange Tales— Excelsior! Show up early and stay late as some of comics’ best indie creators come out of the closet, revealing themselves as maniacal Marvel madmen. Witness twisted love for some of mainstream comics’ best characters! Forbidden fantasies fulfilled! Shannon “Too Much Coffee Man” Wheeler comes clean about his eco-terrorist Red Skull; Jhonen “The Homicidal Maniac”Vasquez mulls over M.O.D.O.K.; and Jeffrey “Incredible Change-bots” Brownmesses with the Merry Mutants. And more major terrific talents join this core crew, spilling secret stories from Marvel’s Strange Tales. Room 9
It’s going to be amazing, and if it isn’t I was probably just lying about it being amazing.
5. SEEECRET PRINT!
Not so secret, really, but I can’t say just now what it’ll be as I’m not sure. If it’s what I think I’m thinking it will be, it’ll be pretty fantastic. I hope it’s not something awful, really. Either way, more on this as I get more information out of myself. This’ll be the usual deal I’ve been doing at conventions for the last year or so where I do a very small run of prints to sell to people who know a particular password that binds them to the print in question. It’s like a Lord of the Rings situation, only it ends up with the buyer’s (the not very attractive ones anyhow) having to wash my car.
The password to buy this print will be: ”AH SHORE WUD LAHK ONE’A DEM PRINTS”
If you could speak this in a real thick southern accent that would be awesome. Please try. As always, these will be going for $35 and all proceeds will go to too much pie in my stomach.
Anyhow, here’s a tiny sliver of a peek in case you’re that: impatient:
