I'm appearing on the PajamaCon Twitch Stream Today!

Since Emerald City has been cancelled, my friends at Iron Circus are holding a digital "convention" stream over the weekend called PajamaCon! I'll be appearing on the twitch stream at 2:40 Pacific/4:40 Central, and a bunch of other cool creators will be appearing througout the weekend. Come check it out!

Sam and Fuzzy Q & A:  Conless Edition
Got a question you want answered? Just drop me an email with "Q & A" in the subject line!

"My apologies if this has been answered already, I looked for it and couldn't find it. Will there be a new book/omnibus with the material up to the finale? I love having your work in print, especially to share with friends who prefer physical copies of things. Thanks a bunch!" -Frank

Yes indeed! The final two omnibuses will be arriving via a Kickstarter ASAP. I've been working on getting 'em ready while simultaneously prepping for the spring con season (designing and ordering new merch, prepping and shipping inventory, making displays, etc), which really slowed me down. But now all that con prep is done... and all those cons are being cancelled! So, uh, I kinda wish I had just worked exclusively on the books. Grr!

But either way, I am almost done getting the campaign ready, so it should launch soon. (Backers of the S&F Extra tier of my Patreon will have already seen some previews of some of the art and cover work I've been doing for 'em!)

"Are you still going to Wondercon next month?" -Dave

Alas, Wondercon has just joined Emerald City on the growing list of comic conventions being cancelled this spring due to coronavirus concerns. At the moment, the only con I have left on my schedule for spring is Calgary Expo, and depending on how things are going by late April, they may well cancel that one, too!

Obviously, protecting everyone's health is the most important thing! So if shows have to be cancelled, they have to be cancelled, and I support it entirely. But I will say, if this wave of cancellations needs to extend into the summer, well... that would be pretty rough.

You know, when you do conventions for a living, you plan for some volatility! After all, individual shows are constantly coming and going, starting up or going out of business, getting better or worse over time, changing dates, changing owners... you name it. But I must admit, I never imagined a scenario where a whole year of them was cancelled on mass. If that happens, I will just have to lean a little harder on commission work, Patreon, Kickstarter, and online sales this year! (And as always, my sincere thanks to all of you who help support me any of those ways!)

That's a wrap for today. See you on Monday, team!

March Patreon Rewards

It's that time again: a whole bunch of fun new rewards are up now for my Patreon backers! In particular, this month, S&F Extra backers get a behind-the-scenes look at the new art I'm making for the final S&F books. And for fans of 18+ stuff,Saucy Hippo backers get new comics starring Sam and Jess, and new illustrations featuring Morris, Cooper, Nic, and Tats. Pow!

We return on Friday with our next comic. (And a new round of Q and A! So as always, if you've got a question you'd like me to answer, just pop it in an email with "Q and A" in the subject line.) See you then, team!

ECCC Postponed

Seattle friends! As you may have already heard, Emerald City Comic-Con has been postponed due to the current coronavirus situation. ECCC is one of my favourite shows, and also one of the most important to me livelihood-wise, so it's not easy to lose it. But of course, everyone's health is the most important thing!

I do really hope that they're able to find a nice new date for it. (And that I am available to go!) Between you and me, friends, this plot twist has been a little financially brutal, especially when I'd already manufactured and mailed a bunch of swag to Seattle. You might have guessed this if you'd ever seen one of my (enormous, swag-filled) con booths in person, but the 9 or so cons I do each year are actually an enormous part of how I make my living, even compared to a lot of other cartoonists. It's tough to lose such a big one, and spooky to think that others might follow suit!

But, I will survive! That said, if you were thinking of nabbing any of the swag in my online store or subscribing to my Patreon, now is a swell time. And if you were someone who was hoping to nab one of my custom pet portraits or art commissions at the show, you can of course always email me to get one online instead!

We return on Wednesday with our next comic!
