6:29pm: Sticks and Stones Halloween Special - UPDATE
Well, the Help-Me-Pay-My-Rent-A-Thon was a success! Thanks to all of you who bought books, I am now in the process of sending them to the printers. It looks like they will be ready by the beginning of December. With any luck, you'll receive them by Christmas.

The Halloween Special is ongoing -- Act One is complete; Act Two will begin in a subsequent post, hopefully later on tonight.

Okay, so it looks like I've bit off a bit more than I can chew. It turns out that doing a comic writing marathon was a totally surmountable goal when I had no life and no responsibilities. Nowadays, I just can't sit at the computer all day long and draw comics. Life has been getting in the way. I am, however, still going to spend all of my free time drawing pages of this comic until it is finished. I am expecting to be able to do a few pages per day, but I guess we'll see.

page five behind the cutCollapse )


Thanks again to everyone who has been pre-ordering my book. I'm really excited about this collection. It's a complete project, my first two years of Sticks and Stones all in one little book. Even though my drawing skills have improved since then, I feel that many of these comic strips represent my best work.

This page took me a while, due to the fact that I was a zombie when I woke up this morning. Literally. Awesome.

Okay, so I slept in a little bit, but I'm now ready to continue the Sticks and Stones Halloween Special. I just got off the phone with my insurance company, and they told me that i shouldn't expect my claim this week. Therefore, I am in serious trouble, and I really need your help. Please, pre-order my book below, or, if you can't afford it, please please please tell your friends that this is happening. I need to somehow make almost 15 grand by the end of the week, and so far I've only been able to raise about $150.00. Thank you so much, those of you who have pre-ordered books so far.

Well, I think I'm just about ready to turn in for the night. And by night I mean the 5 or 6 hours of sleep I'll get before I wake up and start comicking more! Remember to tell your friends, I'd really appreciate it.

Oh yeah and pre-order my book!

Thanks everyone for all of your help so far, but we've still got a ways to go. Remember, feel free to order more than one copy of the book and give them away as gifts, as this will really help me out. And help is what I need.

You may be aware that this is my second “help-me-pay-my-rent-a-thon,” the first being two years ago on this date.

The Sob Story:

About three months ago, my employer sent me home on Stress Leave. I am due a certain amount of compensation from my insurance company, but I have yet to receive it. We have been living on Jessica’s student loan in the meantime, but it doesn’t look like we’re going to have enough money to cover our bills at the end of the month. There are several other complications in our lives right now, which I will not go into here, but ironically, my Stress Leave has been VERY STRESSFUL.

How You Can Help:

Pre-Order my book!



It’s the Complete Sticks and Stones Collection 2005-2007. That’s over 200 comic strips packed into a little paperback book. I’m selling them for $12.00 a piece, plus shipping. I’m hoping to have the book printed by November 16. Read a sample of the book here.

The Other Way You Can Help:

Tell your friends! If you have a site, please let people know I’m doing this. If you regularly post in a forum, you can copy-paste this post or just link to my website. Tell your Livejournal Friends! Tell your Facebook Friends! Tell your MySpace Friends! Tell your Mom!

What I’m Going To Do For You In Return:



This time, I will not be drawing a comic strip every hour, but rather a page of my Sticks and Stones Halloween Special every three hours. It’s going to be full color, so this will be interesting… It will probably take 3-4 days to do 24 pages. I’m planning on sleeping at night for a few hours here and there, but it really will be a marathon. Buy enough books, and you or your comic character could get a cameo.

Now Start Pre-Ordering My Book!



I seriously need money fast, so order multiple copies! Pre-Order more than 10 copies and you or a character from your comic will be featured in the Halloween Special as a background character. Buy in multiples of five to ensure the best price on shipping.

Stay tuned for page number one!

9:35am: I've been working on this full-colour comic book. It's set in space. These examples are not quite finished; I have yet to add dialogue and narration, and some minor fixes here and there to the art. The third page is obviously quite unfinished at this point. That in mind, let me know what you think.



Three pages of space-y goodness here!Collapse )

Don't forget to check out all the new comic strips at Sticks and Stones! Tell your friends - I'm trying to get my site traffic back to what it was a year ago (instead, it's more like it was two years ago - not very good).

That's right, that's a "dot ca" instead of a "dot com." Otherwise, it's just like how you remember! Oh wait it is probably nothing like you remember haha! I'm so happy with my new site and I hope you all like it too.
I am no longer going to be posting my comics on livejournal, at least not regularly, so please bookmark my site. I will still use livejournal to post art and other things.
The site updates every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday! Tell your friends!
