Mostly Nonsense is 100% Funded!

We did it! Mostly Nonsense is going to be published! Now I’m busy polishing up the final file to send it off to the printer. No guarantees but if all goes smoothly I’m hoping to have all the books out to everyone before Christmas.

Every Kickstarter backer will get several bonus rewards in addition to the book, including:

CARTOON MEMES – A pack of memes you can use to send well wishes to friends on social media (Happy Birthday, New Baby, etc.)

SKETCHERCISE PDF – 120 of my warmup sketches. These predate Sketchbook Silliness so there are no jokes, but what they lack in humor they make up for in elbow grease.

POSE DRAWING SPARKBOOK PDF – Designed to help you put more life and personality into your drawings. Contains hundreds of drawing prompts and six mini-chapters with thoughts and tips for making your drawings more expressive. A $15 value.

TWO MONTHS OF BONUS CARTOONS – Once every week or two I draw an exclusive bonus cartoon only for my $3 and up Patreon backers. For two months, my Kickstarter backers will get those cartoons too!

The Kickstarter ends at 4:20pm CST tomorrow (Thursday, Dec. 7) and then these bonus goodies disappear. If you have friends or followers who might be interested in them please share about Mostly Nonsense before it’s too late. Here’s the link: http://kck.st/2AiVpj0

Thanks again to all of you for your encouragement and support!

I’m Kickstarting a book of Sketchbook Silliness cartoons

People seem to like my Sketchbook Silliness cartoons. A few have gone mildly viral, I’ve gained thousands of followers on social media, and a few have been featured on the front pages of sites like 9gag and Imgur. Now that I’ve got over 100 cartoons under my belt I thought it was time for a book!

I’ve just launched a Kickstarter campaign. Over 100 gag cartoons, 9×6″, softcover. Check it out!

Also, thanks to all of you who have read and shared my cartoons. It means a lot! Anything you can do to help spread the word would be deeply appreciated!

Podcast Interview: Comics Coast to Coast

I want to say a huge thanks to Comics Coast to Coast for interviewing me on their latest podcast. We talked about a lot of topics from Monster Cereals to toy design to digital brushes to ethnic sensitivities when designing characters. I talked a bit too fast in the first ten minutes or so (newbie mistake) but if you keep listening it gets better. It was a fun conversation and everyone was super nice! They do a great show and their past episodes are definitely worth digging through. Give ’em a listen!

I’m Kickstarting a book of my cartoons

Sometime soon I’m going to be launching a Kickstarter for a book of my cartoons! The first couple of days can make or break a Kickstarter so I’m trying to build some early momentum for the launch. If you’d like to be notified on launch day, just sign up here or at http://www.sketchbooksilliness.com. (I promise to use your email address ONLY for this Kickstarter and nothing else.)

Thanks again to all of you for reading and enjoying my goofy cartoons!

See You At MCBA Fall Comic-Con, Oct. 8

abeb16_ec83dcaeef5443cab3d7e26da1b95403This Saturday (Oct. 8, 2016) is the MCBA Fall Comic-Con. It’s a huge gathering of comic book fans and creators from all over the Midwest, held at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds in St. Paul. As usual I’ll have a table where you can purchase booklets of my Sketchbook Silliness cartoons, get a free Pose Drawing Sparkbook bookmark, or just stop by and chat.

Below is a map of the show floor with a big red arrow pointing to my table (click to enlarge). You can get more info about the Con on the official website. It’ll be a lot of fun. See you there!
