SPX 2010

Here is a view from our table at SPX! I'm already looking forward to next year. The place was packed with talented and friendly artists and a big crowd. I shared a table with Mike Roll again and his ever popular Apooka books! This image is of what may be the beginning of a coffee habit previously unknown to either of us.

Limited Edition Zombie Carnival Prints

I love prints! I now have four color Zombie Carnival prints on 100% recycled paper using soy based ink. I used Pinball Printing to create the prints. I had seen several examples of their prints online and was impressed by how many talented creatives utilized their services. Their pricing is competitive and they were very helpful guiding me through their process. I am sure I will be using them again.

Zombie Field Guide

The Zombie Field guide describes key attributes of zombies to watch out for. Use for entertainment, scientific study, or safety! These cute mini books are perfect bound and complement the standees.

SPACE Alternative Comics & Press Convention, Columbus OH

Our Michigan CCS (college for creative studies) tribe took over most of a long wall of tables at this modest sized convention. We met lots of great folks and I was impressed by the level of quality shown by the other exhibitors. Most of the work was nicely packaged with many people using print shops and on-demand online printing services. I would have liked to see more hand crafted work including silk screening, original sketch work and even alternative crafts.

At my table I offered my new Zombie Carnival prints and standees. Additionally I sold Zombie Field Guides and Fat Camp Sketchbooks. I went through nearly all of my mini-Moo cards and will be getting more of them shortly.

Zombie Standees available soon as card packs

Zombie standees arrive in a pack of thick cards – each with it’s own zombie and stand to cut out, play with and display. Each set of cards includes six zombies, including one zombie cat and one zombie dog as well as one running girl who is not (yet) a zombie. The standees look great terrorizing a toy shelf or hanging around a window ledge or work desk.

Zombie Carnival Standies

I created a set of Zombie Carnival Standies. These were a lot of fun to make and are currently hanging out on my shelves.
