Maps: Where I’ll be at Baltimore Comic Con & SPX!
Including some of my comics friends including Rafer Roberts, the guys from Firetower Studios, Robert Wilson IV (my neighbor again!), Ben Towle and Rich Barrett & Henry Eudy (SPX neighbors!).
Ben’s running a table devoted to “Alphabet Press” including artwork from contributors to Animal Alphabet, Alphabeasts and Alphabooks.
At both shows I’ll have copies of BORDER CROSSINGS and DUE NORTH as well as the last two copies of THINK OF THE CHILDREN’s limited hardcover edition. I’ll also be selling my new handcrafted mini-booklets including excerpts from THE CABINET and PARTIAL INVASIVE. Finally I’ll have Alphabeasts prints and original art for sale.
These next two weeks are going to be crazy.
Here’s a prototype of my mini for Baltimore Comic Con & SPX. 8.5” x 7” final size, screen printed covers on hand cut railroad board, 2 story samples at 6 pages each previewing my upcoming work in 2013. Each copy includes a “found object” letter from Admiral Belcher’s failed arctic expedition.
I’d love feedback on how much I should charge for these. To break even on materials I’d need to charge $3 each. But that seems too much for two 6 page samples. However, it is all handmade and took days of work to complete.
With each mini-comic at Baltimore & SPX I’m including a “found object” letter from THE CABINET. Here’s the calligraphy.
