Prepare yourselves. Nerd Prom is coming.

HOLA Minions!

The map to glory!

Just wanted to pop by her and let you all in on some of the things we’re cooking up for you guys and gals going to SDCC next week!

Fisrt up: WE MADE A COLORING BOOK! *cue applause* We have been wanting to do a coloring book since we started this whole business thing and finally, the stars aligned and we did it! It’s a coloring and activity book featuring our Pirate Monsters from the Captain Dan books. It’s got a whole lot of new, never-before-seen artwork. You should totally swing by and get yours. We’re only going to have 35 of them at the show, so get there early!

Sample pageThe cover!

Second: We’re bring our MAGNET MACHINE! So, you can come to our table and get or make your own SKETCH MAGNETS! Just come to the table, grab a template (we’re bringing a lot of them) and take it to your favorite artist. Have them draw something for you on it (or you can totally draw your own thing on it. Whatever makes you happiest) then bring it back to Small Press table O-2 and for $5, we’ll make your original drawing into a ONE OF A KIND magnet! Neat, huh? I personally have a small collection that my wife got for me for my b-day last month. Take a look!










So there we are! I hope we’ll see you at Table O-2 next week!

By Popular Demand: An Art Process Post!

Hola, Minions! So, with the convention season starting and the release of “Captain Dan vs. The Kraken,” I’ve been asked to write up a blog post explaining how I drew the arts for the new book. Now, I don’t often do this kind of thing (and I didn’t plan ahead for this one,) so bearContinue Reading

2012 – The Conventioning Issue 1 – Wondercon

Sorry about missing last week’s update, folks; convention season has officially started. Last week I was in Anaheim, CA for Wondercon and let me just start off my saying: WHOA! I came to Wondercon with a blank slate, not having ever done the show before and knowing that it was moving to a different cityContinue Reading

Convention Appearances – 2012

Hola, Minions! So, I talk a LOT about convention season on here (it’s either looming, coming up, going on, just about over or done all over this blog), so I thought I might take a moment and tell you all the shows we have planned for this year. March 16-18, 2012 – WonderCon – AnaheimContinue Reading

Up to here

As you probably know, if you’ve been following me here or on twitter, the past few weeks have been completely taken over by work on my next book, Captain Dan vs. The Kraken. Well, good news on that front: I’m done! (with the artwork, at any rate) YAY! So, let me regale you with aContinue Reading

I’d better get KRAKEN!

I’d better get KRAKEN!

If you follow my FB, Tumblr and Twitter pages then you know that today I have big news. (And if you don’t, why not? ;p) Today, I’d like to announce my candidacy for Pres… Oh wait. I’m getting ahead of myself. I can’t do that for a minimum of 5 more years. No, what I’dContinue Reading

Love is in the Air

Hola, Minions! I’ll be honest, today being Friday COMPLETELY took me by surprise. This week just sailed by without so much as a ‘by your leave.’ Just rude, I say. Anywho, today’s blog post is gonna be short. It’s not that I don’t have a lot to say (because I do), I just can’t spillContinue Reading

Get the Heck Out of Dodge

Hi Minions! Sorry I missed my update last week. As you know, I spent the last week and a half in Dodge City, Kansas (yes, it is a real place and not just a made-up old west town) with my In-laws, and updating a blog on the ipad is a pain in the buttocks. IContinue Reading

Top 10, Scmop 10

I guess everyone in the world who has a blog has started posting their “Top 10 lists” or some such thing. Ugh. I’m not gonna do that. So this is a few day’s late, and I apologize for that. Unfortunately, not much happened last week, so there wasn’t much to talk about. Still isn’t IContinue Reading
