Put-N-Play-Con: A Vlog with Some Swearing (Just FYI)

by

Ho dang, this one took a while to edit.

I don’t know why my creativity demanded I make this a video, but I did it. I hope you enjoy it.

In it, I talk about Put-N-Play (the last show I was at), the way conventions tend to promote their shows, and other behind-the-scenes convention secrets.

Here was my set up at Put-N-Play this year:

Sadly, as mentioned in the video, I barely made sales this last weekend. Which is a shame.

My next convention appearance is Kennywood Comicon on June 17th. Wear a nerdy shirt to get a discount on your admission ticket!

After that, I have quite a few more appearances: June 23rd I’ll be at The Big Idea Bookstore in Pittsburgh for Punk, Comics, and Feminism (a discussion group) at 5 pm. Then at 7 pm I’ll be at The Feminist Zine Fest Pittsburgh Zine Reading at the Irma Freeman Center. After that, on June 24th, is Feminist Zine Fest Pittsburgh!

That’s all for now. Thank you for watching and reading!

You. Are. Awesome.

The End of My Videos??

by

Yes, I’m putting my vlogs, Review Day Tuesday Videos, and other videos on an indefinite hiatus.

My energy right now is going into my work – making comics, doing stuff for clients, making things for Patreon, and selling at comic conventions. YouTube was a thing I did for the fun of it, but I have to put it aside for now so I can focus on work and still have time to relax.

As mentioned in the video, I’m updating the blog portion of this website a LOT more often, so you can still keep up with what’s new here on the blog. I’ve also been updating Facebook and Tumblr a LOT more often, especially since I got rid of Twitter.

Thanks for your understanding.

You. Are. Awesome.

PIX 2017 Was Awesome

by

Pittsburgh Indie Comix Expo happened on Sunday and it was GREAT to be there! Got to meet lots of cool punx and zinesters. Today’s video highlights the zines and comics I got while I was there.

It was also just a good weekend overall. I got to step away from social media and focus on comics, from producing to selling, and it helped put a lot of things into perspective.

For instance, I have an idea, which I’ll elaborate on in a future blog post, that I’m not announcing quite yet until I write up a rough plan for it. Of course there are comics and zine ideas I got from PIX, too.

But one of the epiphanies I had was in regards to social media. Specifically, Twitter.

This is the second or third time I’ve seriously considered leaving Twitter, and I have a rule for myself that if I seriously consider leaving a thing or a person three times, I have to act on it.

But I’ll explain that in another post. Just know that PIX was awesome, and it helped bring me back to focus on what’s really important.

And before I forget, here’s the links to the zines I got and the creators who made them:
