HijiNKS HANGOUT #1 with David Willis and Angela Melick is archived for your viewing pleasure.
We talked about conventions, Angela’s love for Pacific Rim, answered some questions tweeted to #HijiNKSHangout and drew pictures of, among other things: a Penguin Convention, other cartoonists, the Disney version of David’s life, and butt blood!
Long after David has died from butt blood poisoning, THIS is how I will remember him.
Some of the custom books I just shipped. Theme is: Weapon of Choice + Spirit Animal. I’m glad I chose that combo because drawing these have been really fun so far :D
Custom editions: wastedtalent.ca/shop
Here is a sketch comic I made called Ducks, in five parts.
Ducks is about part of my time working at a mining site in Fort McMurray, the events are from 2008. It is a complicated place, it is not the same for all, and these are only my own experiences there. It is a sketch because I want to test how I would tell these stories, and how I feel about sharing them. A larger work gets talked about from time to time. It is not a place I could describe in one or two stories. Ducks is about a lot of things, and among these, it is about environmental destruction in an environment that includes humans. Thank you for taking the time to read it.
Kate’s best work IMO, read it read it read it
Agreed, really fantastic work. Highly recommended.
Jak’s comics are so great, I can’t wait to get my print copy :D
Here it is! The link to buy yourself a printed copy of Woo Hoo! Chapter 1! (click the image above to redirect you to the store!)
There are only 100 made, so once they’re gone, they’re gone! There is also an early bird special edition to the first 10 people who buy it - they get a special 8 x 10 glossy print! Ch-ch-check it out!
They each come with a 3.5 x 3.5 inch glowing burger sticker! (not actually glow in the dark, but I wish it did, haha!)
Jordan and I are super proud of it, so if you’re a fan of Woo Hoo!, please consider picking one up!
Reblogs and spreading the word is super appreciated. <3
This weekend is #ECCC, and I’ll be there! You can find me in booth 710, right there! THERE! Do you see it? There on the map. Come find me and say hi :D
I’ll have books and bees and prints and sketches and smiles. I’m so excited to see everyone! Aaa!
WE DID IT! Book 3 broke even today! This means that all of my costs (including boxes, tape, bonus prints and bees and stickers and what not, oh and THE BOOK) are covered :D That’s no small feat for a full-colour offset run, and to achieve this in 11 days is HUGE. It’s all thanks to you guys, and I’m so grateful to have an audience who supports me in making fun things :3
Now when I travel to conventions I only have to worry about convention-related expenses, and maybe I can buy a new pair of pants without having a panic attack, idk.
You can still buy the book, AND special editions are still available until they run out!.
Here’s my webcomic map for emeraldcitycomicon. This is a WIP and will be updated as I remember all the people I forgot. Sorry for the size. That’s how ECCC posted the map and I didn’t resize it at all.
Note that TopatoCo includes a whole pile of webcomic people that I couldn’t list individually. They were all recently announced as guests by ECCC themselves, though, so you can read their blog on that for the info.
As for me specifically, I’m in 811 with several friends. It will be crowded.
Aaahhhh! That’s such a great idea, thank you for doing this and sharing it! We’ll have a hi-res PDF map up on the site in the next week or so if you want to update that too. :)
Here’s another map to webcomics at ECCC, where it seems I am listed as “HJ!.” That’s a… creative abbreviation. Two things about this map are important. A) The ECCC floor is twice as big as it was when I first went there in 2010. B) ECCC is the most webcomics friendly show I have ever been to.
That’s meeee way over there in 710. These two unfortunately aren’t listed in the main directory, but I’m sharing my booth with Jeff Ellis http://www.teachenglishinjapan.ca/ and Jonathon Dalton http://jonathondalton.com/. We’ll all have excellent new books and I’m so excited to see everyone again yay!
