It’s last minute, but I’ll be at Spring Con at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds this weekend. Lemmo is awesome and is letting me take over his table for part of the weekend. I’ll have some prints to sell, and I’ll probably be doing sketches as well. Come by and say hello! I may be hard to find since I don’t have a banner yet.
I registered for the Minneapolis Indie Xpo today! This year I should be much more prepared. The comic’s actually LIVE. Last year, it was awkward to tell people about the comic when I had no site and no strips online. Not even a placeholder.
I’m not ready to put my comics into a book, but I’ll at least have a print or two available for sale! It’s not until early November, so things may change between now and then. Although I’ve been doing webcomics since 2002, I’m still a noob when it comes to conventions.
And if you’ve stuck around for some reason, I drew a sketch of my own last night. Once I’m not late for work, I’ll add it to the gallery. Manga Studio is like cheating for lineart. I’m half considering using it in the future to ink the comic once I get used to the program.
I’d like to sell some color prints at cons and possibly online later on. Does anyone have any requests or suggestions of what they’d want to see? Certain characters? Doing something specific? The cast page is pretty small so far, but it’s nowhere near finished. I know for certain there will be additions between now and any convention I’d go to. I’ve been putting off making a gallery page since I don’t have any shiny color art to post. Unless people wanted to see concept sketches?
The only con I’m planning on attending so far is MIX in early November. It’s not a for-sure since registration doesn’t begin until March. I hope to get my own table this year. Last year I only squeezed my way in by occupying the edge of Lemmo’s table.
Greetings, new readers! (Also, hello to all of you loyal readers! You guys keep me going!)
Welcome to Northwind, the comic about two idiots who got into a lot of trouble and got banished to Earth. We currently update every Tuesday, but there will be a special bonus update on Friday, January 7th!
I recently updated WordPress and Comicpress, but wasn’t very smart about it. Some problems got fixed, but then changes I had made to the stylesheet and the tracking code got overwritten. Next time I’ll be sure to make backups before upgrading anything. If anyone finds problems with the site, please let me know.
A links section has been added, but currently there are only two banners for NW in there. I plan on having an archives page, but I haven’t figured out how to do that with wordpress. I’d like to have something that updates automatically. My coding skills are at the 1990’s geocities html level (haha). Comicpress and its automatic-updating is like magic to me. My old comic was all html and manually updated each time. That was a pain in the butt.
