MOCCA PRE-ORDER DEETS.

So. I'm going to be at the MoCCA Festival in NYC from April 9 - 10 with Emma Rochon and Ariyana Suvarnasuddhi, as The Society of the Okay at table D6. Among other things, I'll have postcards for sale! But if you can't make it to MoCCA Fest, the postcards are also in my online store.

Postcards.

It's the first time we're doing MoCCA and, while I want to make sketches available, I'd like to try and spend more time interacting than drawing at this con. Let's give this a go... PRE-ORDERS. I ink up something nice-nice before MoCCA and you can pick it up from my table at the convention. Easy.

I don't anticipate a flood of requests, so I'm accepting pre-orders until April 6th. My 2011 con pricing is $20 for inks on 9x12 Bristol. Level of detail is this-esque, but probably a bit more because I'll be drawing at home without rush. I'm asking for payment through PayPal but if that doesn't work for you, we can figure it out via e-mail.

I have no more convention plans for the rest of 2011 (or the near future, honestly -- not as anything other than a fan/attendee, anyway) and Artists Alley adventures are the only time I do commissions at this rate.* If you are interested and will be attending MoCCA, please contact me at anniewuart [at] gmail [dot] com.

... I think that's it. Thanks, and hopefully I'll see you soon!

* I've been getting some requests for other sketches to be mailed out and, unfortunately, I can't do those right now. I can offer con sketches for cheap because they're done within the tiny window of time I've set aside to prepare/attend the con anyway and they're picked up in-person. All other individual commissions fall under other rates and I currently don't have the time to give them the attention they require since I'm also freelancing full-time. I'll make a big, obnoxious announcement if/when I start doing those again. Promise.

EVER CIRCLING SKELETAL FAMILY.

Thin White Duke & Jackie.


A few months ago -- for god knows what reason -- I made some dumb joke about David Bowie running a fat camp. Last night, these notes resurfaced and I decided to work off a sugar high (and practice my cartooning) by turning this idea into a fake pitch. The Thin White Duke's fat camp. God, it's so stupid, but this is what happens at 4AM.

Ultimately, I only got as far as two characters. I couldn't even bring myself to ink and finish the fat little campers because they were just too ridiculous. I can tell you they all had baggy white t-shirts with the Aladdin Sane lightning bolt, though. Anyway. Here's David Bowie as the director of a fat camp. And this is his adorable assistant, Jackie -- I'm sorry, I had to.

Now that I've gotten those drawings out of my system, here are a few reasons why such a kids' show could never, ever exist: A) It's David Bowie and he's too good for this nonsense, and B) it's hard to animate so much milk and cocaine.

SILENT FILM MAKE-UP FOR EVERYONE.

Buster Keaton.

I'm going through some sort of Buster Keaton thing right now. I initially typed out a whole big post to explain but it later seemed silly -- maybe even a little redundant, if you've followed my work for a while -- to share. Let's just say I like deadpan.

Also? Buster Keaton was fun. To. Stare at. All right, maybe I included that last one just because I thought it was funny... But look! He even holds his own against Mr. David Bowie. That's not easy.

Edit: Ah, looks like my guest page for The Gutters webcomic just went live. This is the first time I've ever drawn something for someone else to color. It's weird! I mean, obviously, it looks great but this is certainly something new. Thanks for letting me participate, guys. I hope my lines weren't a nightmare to deal with. Anyway, the rest of you, please enjoy Charles Xavier's "dat ass" face.
