– Sorry this one is a bit late. Lots of non-work stuff happening this week. Plus, longer strips like this take a bit longer.
– Fanaticon, the small comic festival that I’m helping my students organize, is this Saturday at the East Portland Community Center. You can find all the info here. If you live in Portland please come and check it out!
– My new book, 24 Hour Modest Medusa, is now available for sale on my store. I know a lot of you weren’t able to get a copy of the book during the Kickstarter, so here it is now. I’ll be happy to sign any copy thats ordered through my store. Here’s the link. If you’re an international fan please contact me for shipping info.
And the worst part is she’s still thirsty!!!
hmm has Modest always had that little … I dunno, tuft of scales between her rear snakes?
Yeah, but we rarely ever see it. She HAS actual hair that the snakes kind of grow out of, but my drawing style simplifies it to look like just 4 big snakes growing out of her scalp. But ever now and then you can see little bits of hair, especially in the back.
Ohhh okay. I always THOUGHT that but I thought I was wrong. That’ll teach me to think!
Hey Jake, the stickers with the books, it’s all good. I pretty much give the stickers away to people who might pay attention to your comic stylings… I barely do social media, but I will totally do real life social promotion… which may actually be less effective on a numbers basis, but I still hope promotes the comic (which I personally love) to a few more people which can help to make it work as a profession for you. Super quick on the my placing of an order to a personal response from you as well.
Also, I have dreams like that about twice a week… I may not have traditional insomnia, but according to my fitbit, it still takes me about 11 hours to accomplish 8 hours of sleep.
I just happened to be sitting in front of teh computer when your order came through. I appreciate you doing “meat space” promotion. I honestly think the best way to learn about something is to have someone put it in your hand or direct it to you in person. I had dozens of people tell me about Steven Universe or Over the garden Wall online before someone in my life took me aside in erson and told me that I’d love them both if I watched them. recently I handed my friend Kyle copies of Wet Moon and Glory because I thought he’d enjoy them both. I loan a lot of books and movies.
Wooo! Meat space!
Did you break the ‘P’ key on your computer recently too?\Just ’cause I pried the P key off mine because I thought it was causing a serious error (it wasn’t. it was a USB dongle for the afore mentioned fitbit).
I didn’t. Have I been leaving out Ps?
There’s nothing like having a mermaid come out of the toilet to remind you that your hair killed her best friend.
I could wonder whose nightmare it is—Modest’s, or one of the snakes…
And it’s still not your fault, Modest.
And I just noticed her little snakes are all limp and asleep! Awwww! ♥
Except Sneaky. He’s awake… but it’s also a dream… wait…
Jake, if there’s supposed to be a link in your comments to Fanaticon, it’s not working. I was planning to come by. I know it’s at the EPCC, but I forget what the hours are.
Oops! Fanaticon is 10am-2pm on Saturday. All the info can be found right here: https://www.facebook.com/events/140596066317163/
By the way, I think the snake that takes her over might be the one that comes out of her mouth in everyone’s dreams..
