I'm So Excited About Whatever

Over on my tumblr, I posted a little bit about the design process for the new "I'm So Excited About Whatever" shirt. And I'm going to try to do similar posts for "Winners Don't Use Save States" and "Shoulda Ordered Pizza" later this week. ("Save States" in particular went through a lot of different concepts.)

I like using tumblr to share this kind of behind the scenes production stuff! If you're interested in seeing previous posts about design process -- like for the Volume 3 book cover or my big Green Lantern parody piece -- you can find them all here.

Thanks to everyone who has been picking up the new books and swag! (Or the old books and swag, for that matter.) I feel super privileged to be able to do what I do for a living, and you guys are the reason why I can do it!

New book available now, new shirts and apron on sale later today!

Good news, everyone... my new apron and two new shirts are now on sale! I hope you guys are as excited about these as I am... I think they are some of the strongest designs I've ever done!

Thanks for a great convention, Edmonton! The crowd was great, with lots of new readers to meet, more than a few familiar faces from Calgary Expo, and plenty of interested newbies to introduce to our stuff! Based on the quality of the show and the turnout it got, I think it's going to grow really big, really fast. I'll definitely be back next year!

And unrelated-but-equally-vigorous thanks to everyone who has picked up a copy of Sam and Fuzzy Under the Influence! (Or one of our special multi-book bundles.) I'm also really happy to see so many folks picking up the "Artist Editions" that come with a random sketch inside. (To dismiss a worry a few of you expressed: if you get all three volumes as Artist Editions, you won't wind up with drawings of the same characters, even if you bought each book a year apart. I pick a different set of characters to use for each volume!)

New Book available now!

Edmontonians: I am at the Edmonton Expo this weekend, hanging with my pals Alina and Layne at the booth known as "Weregeek/Sam and Fuzzy". (AKA booth #703.) If you're going to be in the area, come by and say hello!

Everyone: the latest Sam and Fuzzy print collection -- Sam and Fuzzy Under the Influence -- is now on sale! You can nab it on it's own, or bundle it up with either (or both) of our previous books for strategic deals. As always, picking up the Sam and Fuzzy books is the perfect way to score the comic in it's slickest, prettiest format while simultaneously supporting my rogue webcartoonist lifestyle.

You can also get an "Artist Edition" copy of the book, which includes a bookplate with a signed original black and white drawing by me inside, just like our previous two books. This time around, I also drew four particularly special bookplates with fancy full-colour art, which will be given out randomly to four lucky artist-edition buyers. Alas, I, uh... seem to have lost the photo I took of the those bookplates before mailing them to Topatoco. (I'll see if I can get them to give me one!)

Also on they way are two new t-shirts -- one featuring Baker the dog, and one featuring some classy retro-gaming nonsense -- and the new "Shoulda Ordered Pizza" apron! They are not available yet, but they will be fairly soon (EDIT: Looks like they'll go on sale Monday!), so I figured I better announce them informally now in case anyone wants to order a book and a shirt/apron at the same time. Here's a sneak peek! (Click for a larger version.)

Just like in the past, folks who buy a copy of Volume 3 will become members of the Sam and Fuzzy Book Club, and receive a little extra (mostly digital) swag throughout the year. The first bonus -- an Alphonso bookmark -- is included with the book, and the next set will be announced closer to Christmas. Woo!
