Sleeping like a baby

Studio Con

After leaving the comic-convention treadmill many years ago, I was actually planning to attend this year's Comic Con International in San Diego. Although I wasn't going to work a booth, my podcast partner Dave Kellett and I had planned a live ComicLab show for the weekend. And maybe I'd bring a box of books and sell them at Dave's table for one day.

When the show was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic, he and I started spit-balling how we could replace the convention experience for our readers — and ourselves.

That's how we came up with Studio Con. Here are the details

  • Buy a book here during the posted hours
  • Receive a link to a Zoom meet-up
  • You and I chat — while you watch me draw in your book
  • I ship the book to you.

We're even working on a two-camera set-up so you can talk to our face and see our hands actively drawing in your book.

If this sounds like something you'd be interested in, Send me an email or tweet me so I can plan something extra nice for you!
