It’s that time of year again! The 3rd Annual Q2Q Comics Costume Contest is going on!
Dress up as your favorite Q2Q Comics character (get creative with it!), take some snazzy photos and then send them to shop at q2qcomics dot com! Prizes will be given out to the top entries!
This year’s top prize is a signed and doodled upon copy of Q2Q Comics Vol. 1!
Submissions will be accepted until midnight on 11/1 and the winners will be announced on 11/2!
We got our copies of the book in today!
So the next few weeks will be dedicated to shipping out the Kickstarter rewards. I’ll be signing and doodling until my arm falls off; it’ll be great!
The remaining books will be available for sale soon in the Q2Q Comics Shop!
I’ll be at the USITT conference again this year! It’s in what I can only assume is beautiful Salt Lake City. I’ll probably be wandering around the stage expo most of the time all slack jawed and awestruck by all the cool stuff. So, you could try to catch me there, just don’t sneak up on me because I know Tae Kwon Do and, while I might be rusty, those instincts are still intact. So watch out!
OR! (and I would prefer this) you could just catch me during the scheduled Book Signing event on Saturday 3/19 at 10am!
There’ll be copies of the book for sale at the USITT Bookstore during the conference along with some t-shirts (including the return of the Thank You Five shirt!) and a selection of prints (Anatomy prints for each character, and a couple of different full comics). We’ll also have original artwork from the comics for sale during the signing. And while it’s called a “book signing,” don’t let the name fool you; I’ll sign anything put in front of me. That’s an exaggeration. No it’s not. Either way, we can test the limits of that statement on 3/19.
Or you could come to the Young Designers and Technicians awards on Thursday at 10am and listen to me give a, what’s it called? Remarky talky thing? A speech! That’s the one. You heard it right: they somehow managed to talk me into speaking at the YD&T Awards. I’ll do my best.
Here’s a lovely article from USITT’s Sightlines announcing what all I’m doing at the conference.
