Here's where we plug all our crap and hope that you enjoy it!
First of all, it's that time of year when all our hosting fees are due, so if you've been thinking of grabbing a t-shirt or hat from our store, doing it today would be awesome!
I also have prints and sundries in my personal store.
Of course if you want to wait in person until Detroit Fanfare on the 24th or 25th, that would be cool. By the way, tickets are still available for the 'Fare, they are $15 for a weekend pass. Convention hotel rooms are only $89 a night, which is awesome, and if you want to attend the awards ceremony Saturday night for the Shel Dorf Awards, tickets are $75 and include dinner plus an open bar!
You could also spend Saturday night (the 24th) at the convention party, which is free to attend. Shots for Sketches, a charity event that requires you buying a shot for an artist, who will then provide you with a sketch, will be going on during that party. Myself and MoonFreight 3's Luke Foster will be taking part, hopefully!
Detroit Fanfare is organized in part by Laura's brother Tony Miello, so let's promote some of his stuff! His Gapo the Clown comic strip is so popular, even Jim Norton has been in it. Until September 16th, for $13, pre-orders of his newest Gapo book will include a free sketch. "Big, Fat and Greasy" collects all 370-some comics. That includes all the web comics AND all the comics that were done just for print. That's cheaper than my Lanarama collection, which only includes half the strips I ever did. (Which you can buy in person and get a sketch at Detroit Fanfare.)
If you're in or around the Columbus area at all in October, I'll be showing the "Junk Food Gang" painting (pictured above) and a couple of other new paintings in the Yummy! Art Show at Brothers Drake Meadery. (26 E. 5th Ave., in the Short North.) The opening night is from 7pm to 10pm on October 1st during Gallery Hop, and you can get in with a food donation for the Ohio Food Bank.
At the same time, I also have my Narwhal/Unicorn print in the QR Code Art Show, which is happening during several events this Fall. It's pretty sweet -- you scan the QR code, and are shown an art print available for purchase. During last weekend's Gallery Hop, I was QR code 26, but that may change between showings. You'll just have to find all the code displays and see what's going on at each!
Finally, I'd like to remind everyone that Mink Car Cover is still available for purchase, either digitally or as a cd. The money raised by purchasing the album is donated to the FDNY Foundation. It's a great cause and a fantastic album, covered by some of the internet's most popular nerd musicianry.
