Upcoming Event: FCBD!
I'm so excited for my first ever public event as a creator! On May 7th, I will be one of the artists at the Orem, Utah Dragon's Keep participating in Free Comic Book Day! If you're not sure what FCBD is, check out the link above. In a nutshell, it's the first Saturday in May of each year in which participating comic and game shops give out free comic books to help inspire future generations of comic lovers! There are often special events at each shop (Dragon's Keep is having a giveaway for example) and comic artists often show up to show off their art and even take requests!
So, on May 7th from about 10am-2pm I'll be at the Orem Dragon's Keep to promote Aww, Feathers!, sell some prints, and do free sketches! Please note there are three Dragons Keep locations in Utah Valley: Provo, Orem, and Lehi. I will be at the one located at 48 West 300 North, Orem, Utah. It's right behind the Wienerschnitzel restaurant. Here's a map for directions: https://goo.gl/maps/rTk997LQDfS2. For more info about the store, visit dragonskeep.com.
I'd love for you guys to stop by and say hi! Come and pick any character from Aww, Feathers! or even your own character (an art reference is nice, but not strictly necessary) and if you want, choose a comic book character to style them after! This will also be one of the few times the collectible patron postcards will be available outside of Patreon, so you can pick up any you may have missed.
If you will not be able to make it in person, you can still get a free sketch. I need to get some practice in for the big day, so I'll be accepting requests between now and the big day. Just leave me a comment, message, tweet, or whatever and pick any character from Aww, Feathers! or your own character, as well as a superhero or villain to dress them as, and I'll do as many as I can! (I did a few art streams, but they proved to be too difficult for my poor computer and internet connection to handle.)
Finally, don't forget about the Aww, Feathers! Civil War giveaway. Only a few people have entered so far. All you need to do is share or retweet the respective post along with your theory of what could cause a civil war between Ine and Chris. You can also add to the prize pool by pledging on Patreon. You have til the end of May to enter! Check out this news post for details!
I'm looking forward to the coming month! Hope to see many of you in person and streaming online!
