Q2Q Comics #554: A “Yes” Attitude

Mischief Adventures at USITT 2019!

We had an excellent time at USITT in Louisville.

I signed all of the copies of Volume 2 and drew tons of doodles (propcat was especially popular this year). And you nerds brought it tons of weird crap for me to sign.  The list of unusual items I’ve signed now includes: a water bottle, a rescue inhaler, a rubber duckie, TWO resumes (please someone hire both of them), a kid’s fan art of Wuggles, a light plot, a Nerds plushie, and a knee brace.

And, as is now tradition, our own little gremlin La Ropasucia got up to no good on the Stage Expo floor.

If you want to see the mischief in real time, and for some videos (and pictures of my cats), you should follow Q2Q on instagram, too. 

Saturday I even co-presented a session on Body Mic techniques with Chris of DPA Microphones. So I got to flex some of my audio muscles and share drop some knowledge on likeminded folks. It was a lot of fun and not something that I get to do very often.

We’re glad to be home, but things are in flux here as Liz and I prepare to move away from Ohio, and on to Boston (and then I immediately turn around and head for St Louis) so things are very hectic around here. But I’m glad we got to see so many of our friends at the conference and that we got to meet so many of you at the signing!

We’ll see you next year in Houston!

OH OH OH OH! AND VOLUME 2 AND THE VOLUME 1 REPRINT ARE UP IN THE SHOP RIGHT NOW! GET YOUR BOOKS!

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!

The Q2Q Comics Vol. 2 Kickstarter is LIVE!

Click here to reserve your copy of Q2Q Comics Vol. 2!

The kickstarter campaign for Q2Q Comics Vol. 2 is now live!

We’re looking to raise $15,000 to do a first print run hardback featuring comics #221 through #420.

The campaign will run from 2/21/18 to 3/24/18.

The Vol. 1 campaign was fully funded in 24 hours and raised $40,383 from 1085 backers over 30 days, and we’re expecting an even better turn out for Vol. 2.

You’ll be able to get the physical book signed, doodled or plain, single or in pairs, and a digital download of the DRM-free PDF of the book as soon as that becomes available. Everyone who backs the campaign for $5 or more will also get their name in the book!

We’re also doing something super special this time around: Department Themed Mystery Boxes. You pick your department (audio, electrics, scenery, stage management, paints, etc.) and we’ll curate a mystery box for you, that could contain, but is not limited to, prints, artwork, hand made things, stuffed animals, clothing, gremlins, stationary, stickers, the true meaning of friendship, buttons, hand written notes, ya know, general loot crate-y stuff.

Liz and I have been having a lot of fun brainstorming for this reward tier and I’m super excited to be able to offer it this time.

I’ll be posting updates about the campaign here, on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Tumblr. If you want to follow more closely, become a patron on Patreon!

Thanks!
