Book Signing! USITT 2019 in Louisville, KY!

Hiya, Folks! It’s that time of year again. USITT is right around the corner. This year it’s in Louisville, KY! And, once again, I will be at the conference doing a book signing in conjunction with the USITT bookstore!

Friday March 22nd from 4pm to 530pm on the Scene Design Stage on the Stage Expo floor!

Copies of Q2Q Comics Volume 2 will be available in the USITT Bookstore. But I’ll sign just about anything you put in front of me. I will be doing character sketches and there will be stickers and other goodies to be had at the signing table, so stop on by!

Liz, several La Ropasucias, Blorp and I will also be out wandering the Conference and Stage Expo from Wednesday through Saturday, so if you see us upstanding citizens and the little Gremlins around, feel free to say hi! We’re friendly.

Costume Contest Submissions Close Tonight!

This is it folks. Today is the last day to get your entries for the costume contest in. Submissions close tonight at midnight. The winners will be announced tomorrow!

If you want your chance to win some original art, or prints, send me your best Morty, Wuggles, Cass, or any member of the Q2Q Crew!

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.
