Happy almost-Halloween! I thought about putting up a cute holiday-themed drawing, but I figured you would rather have more kissing. (Feel free to correct me if I’m wrong.)

Coming up: on November 6 and 7 I’ll be off and running at New England Webcomics Weekend! My first time ever at the show. I am planning on taking it easy and having fun – they tell me this is possible. It’s quite a slog for me to get to the East Coast and next year I will have a sparser convention schedule, so if you’re anywhere within smacking distance of Northampton, consider dropping by!

Meanwhile, over at The Meek, Der-Shing is showing off another example of the best kind of lady: one who is armed and looking for literature.

Oh, kids. Enjoy the moment.

I had a great time at APE! It was, as usual, wonderful to hear from my fellow nerds and talk about things profound and ridiculous. I even received some truly delightful fan-art (which will go up later today, as soon as I get it to the studio scanner).

It’s a lot of fun two have two books, although trying to explain how different they are is pretty funny. (”Do you like guillotine jokes, or theology jokes?”) Thank you to everybody who said hello, and extra thanks to those of you who dropped some of your hard-earned dollars.

This weekend I’m out of town for some family duties, and then the weekend after Halloween I’ll be packing my suitcase yet again for New England Webcomics Weekend. In the meantime, I am on the trail of those last few pre-orders!

Family Man update! + see you at APE!

Luther: should get drunk more often.

I’ll be at the Alternative Press Expo this weekend in San Francisco, at table 636 (pdf map), just around the bend from my studiomates Erika Moen and Trixie Biltmore. (Pun Time: it is funny because they are always driving me around the bend! ha! ha!) I’ll have books, more books, a dwindling supply of prints (move fast!), stickers, and a few never-see-them-again Family Man items. Also sketches, in exchange for coffee money. Coffeeeeeee.

On the storefront: I am down to less than a dozen pre-orders, all requiring watercolor paintings, which are in process! Regular orders are now heading out the door and should all be on their way by next week. Light…at end…of tunnel…aghghgh!

Oh, this is getting fun. Despite pre-convention madness, there will be a page next week, because stalling out here would just be immoral. I swear, everybody; this is where THINGS START TO GET REAL.

In other news!  Recently Oregon Public Broadcasting’s program, Oregon Art Beat, aired a seven-minute video feature on what it’sOPB Arts Beat like to work at Periscope Studio, where I’ve been a member since 2007. After years of lame “Biff! Pow! Comics!”-type write-ups, this is a truly lovely little feature that conveys all the silliness, comraderie, and hard work we pack into one office suite.

Click the screenshot to watch the video on OPB’s website and see me and my studiomates in action. Thanks to Tom and Katrina at OPB for putting together such a great little story about us nerds!

Next week: more comic! Then: San Francisco. Yay!

Oh, boys. Four kinds of booze* in one evening? Good grief.

Welcome to October! No grand news to report, other than incipient Travel-a-thon; I’ll be at APE mid-month, then away for some family funerals, then home for Halloween, and then in Massachusetts for New England Webcomics Weekend! (Sorry, no New York Comic-Con for this girl; my head would’ve fallen off.) Doubtless this will have an impact on my productivity, but I’m looking forward to seeing friendly faces on both coasts. I am looking forward even more to a winter full of staying put.

But more than all of that, I’m looking forward to the next few pages. Mwahahah.

Pre-orders: still going out! Down to the last armful of book-onlys, and steadily burrowing through the painting orders.  Whew! It’ll be crazy to not go through $200 of postage a week when this is all over…
