Q2Q Interview on Silk Flowers and Papier Mache Hearts!

Hi Folks!

I did an interview with Ashley Flowers and Erik Hart’s props podcast Silk Flowers and Papier Mache Hearts!

It’s broken up into two parts, and part 1 is available to listen to right now with part 2 being dropped soon. In the first part we talk mostly about the comic and in the second we get into the relationship between props and sound, and we dive into foley, field recording, and sound effects.

You can listen the first part here. 

UPDATE:

Part 2 is up now!

You can listen to part 2 here!

I highly recommend checking out the rest of the podcast and following them.

Thanks!

Summer Schedule!

Hi Folks! It’s Summerstock time!

I’m at my summer theatre home from now until October which, once again, means a few things:

  • I will not be maintaining a strict three-a-week update schedule. It’ll be more like one-a-week, but sometimes more, sometimes less. It’ll be especially slow this month while we’re busy loading in for the season. I’ll be making more comics once the first show opens and my schedule stabilizes.
  • New comics will continue appearing monthly in Stage Directions magazine. No interrupted service there.
  • The shop is closed until October. I don’t have any of my merchandise with me and will not be able to ship anything, including prints. I am also not taking commissions for the duration (and probably won’t be taking any while I’m fulfilling the volume 2 kickstarter rewards through the end of the year, if I’m being honest).
  • I won’t be as active on the usual internet places, so if you need  to get in touch, use the contact form instead of sending a message on facebook/tumblr/wherever.

That’s it folks! If you’re off to your summer home, too, I wish you well! Have fun and make good art!

Kickstarter Update: The Campaign Is Over! We’re Funded

Woo! The campaign is over and we are funded!

280% Funded, actually.

That makes: 904 Backers. $42100 Pledged. 951 Books.

Thank you, everyone. You made this happen. Thanks you for backing and for sharing and for reading the comics.

I, uh, guess I’ve got to go make this book thing now, huh?

I will be posting process updates on Kickstarter occasionally, but the best places to go for the latest information will be FacebookTwitter, and Tumblr. If you want to see pictures of my cats, follow along on Instagram. And if you want to be part of some of the decision making process, you can become a patron of Q2Q Comics on Patreon. I have been and will continue to post polls and ask for suggestions from my braintrust over there.

Again, thanks to all of you beautiful backers. Especially you. I’m so excited! I can’t wait for you to see this book!

Kickstarter Update: $40K! Stretch Goal Unlocked!

Overnight, we broke $40K! Ya’ll have unlocked the Cryptid Sticker Pack stretch goal!

If you have selected a reward tier that includes a book (basically all of them $15+) then in addition to the stated rewards you will be getting a pack of 6 vinyl, die-cut cryptid stickers that will feature La Ropasucia, Blorp and Prop Cat. I’m still working on the designs, but they should all be roughly 3-4″ across. If you’re a patron of Q2Q Comics on Patreon, you’ll get some say in what the designs are, even!

If you are thinking “dang I really want those stickers, but I didn’t selected a reward tier that entitles me to one of those sexy books! What can I do?” fear not, friendo! You can still change your reward tier to one that includes a book!

Or perhaps you were thinking “Dear sir, If I were to have selected a reward tier with two of your fine books, am I then to be entitled to DOUBLE sticker packs?” Yes! If you selected any of the two book tiers you will get two packs of stickers. HOWEVER if you choose to add copies of Vol. 1 or Vol. 2 to your order through BackerKit, you will not get any more stickers. We are only counting books that come with your selected reward tiers so that only the folks who backed on Kickstarter get the bonus!

Oh jeez, and since I started typing this we have actually surpassed the total funding for Vol. 1! Woo! Go team! We’ll hold off on the confetti cannon.

Also: I have been asked to put in writing that I promise the Stage Management mystery boxes will not just be an enormous glitter bomb with a dust pan.

Kickstarter Update: Last Chance!

Quick update to say that the campaign is about to end and I’m so excited I might die.

 

Don’t miss out! If you haven’t backed the campaign, dooooo it! Time is almost up!

Numbered books! Extra comics! Sticker packs! Doodles if you want ’em! What’s not to like?!

Thanks!
