KRC 2014: Buddhist is an Honorable Man

I had copies of my Shakespearean What-Ifs mini-comics on sale at the Kids Read Comics convention, and my littlest fan had several questions about the cover image of the Julius Caesar edition.

I can see it now.. Buddhist and Cautious meet to discuss the assassination of Juiciest Scissors, but Cautious thinks it's too risky and Buddhist refuses to participate in the taking of life, so Scissors becomes Rome's new emperor and cuts everyone else down to size.

KRC 2014: Hamlet's Shocking Plot Twist

So, my littlest fan from the Kids Read Comics convention last weekend wasn't completely satisfied with my new ending to Hamlet. She decided it wasn't nice of Claudius to poison Hamlet's father in the first place - and, let's face it, she has a point. Fortunately, she gave me the following suggestions on how to fix that:

In case you're wondering where this little dramatic genius comes from, she's part of the excellent Dim Sum Warriors team. Check out their stuff! You'll never look at your food in the same way again.

KRC 2014: The End of Hamlet

I had a really fun time at my first convention this past weekend. Thanks so much to the organizers for hosting such a fun, laid-back and enjoyable show, and thanks to my table neighbors, Emily Zelasko and The Amazing Cynicalman, for providing good company, advice and inspiration. Also, thanks to those of you who stopped by to say hello! I really enjoyed meeting and talking with you. 

The Kids Read Comics! convention is, perhaps unsurprisingly, full of kids, and I had a lovely time chatting with many of them about Shakespeare. Here, preserved for posterity, is a conversation I had with my littlest fan:

Well.... what was I supposed to do?

Kids Read Comics! (A.K.A. My First Convention)

Hi everyone! I am super-excited, because this weekend I will be sharing my work at my very first comics convention - Kids Read Comics! I will be at Table #22 in Artist Alley, and will be there 12:00pm-6:00pm on Saturday, and 12:30pm-6:00pm on Sunday. 

I know most of my readers are not in the Southeastern Michigan area, but if you are, stop by and say hello! I've prepared some convention-exclusive swag for you, including a collection of my three-panel Shakespeare plays and some physical copies of my mini-comics.


Before you ask, let me just say that no, I have NOT yet gotten my act together and figured out how to most efficiently (and profitably) sell my stuff online yet, so this motley collection of material is, for the moment anyways, ONLY available at the Kids Read Comics! convention. However, I am hoping to get some sort of online shop up and running in the future. If you have any suggestions or want to share your own experiences selling stuff online, please do send me a message (goodticklebrain at gmail dot com) because I'd love to hear from you.

I will be at Table #22 in Artist Alley, and will be there 12:00pm-6:00pm on Saturday, and 12:30pm-6:00pm on Sunday. I hope to see some of you there!
