Hey there, Bumperfriends!
I've got a few new things to announce, so let's just cut to the chase...San Diego Comic-Con 2010
Wow, another Comic-Con already? This will be my seventh year exhibiting and every year the show gets bigger and bigger! The building is bursting at the seams! Well, if you're one of the lucky people who snagged tickets this year, please stop by my table! Again, I'll be in the Small Press Pavilion, table O-16, right next door to my buddies at Sturdy Comics, Wahab Algarmi
and Anthony Hon
So you are probably asking, "What will you have that's new?" Well, if you haven't picked it up already, I'll have the latest minicomic, "Pictonese Lessons
" which will make its Comic-Con debut this year. It's a fun story about the challenges of learning Pictonese from the one who knows it best: Bumperpup!
Also, for the first time at Comic-Con, I'll be selling my needle-felted creations! Have you ever wanted to own a handmade soft sculpture of Bumperboy? Well now you can! I'll also have other sculptures for sale at the show...but more details about those later...
On Thursday, July 22, at Comic-Con, I'll be participating in the CAM Sketch-A-Thon
at the Cartoon Art Museum booth to benefit the awesome exhibits that this museum constantly showcases. You can find me there at Booth #1930 from 3:00-4:00pm
. Please come by and support this museum! To find out more about this and the other artists who are participating, please visit http://cartoonart.org/2010/07/fourth-annual-cam-sketch-a-thon-at-san-diego-comic-con-international/

I also wanted to let you guys know that I recently launched a new shop...it's called Bumperfriend
! Its home is on Etsy, and the shop features my more crafty and arty items that are more or less related to the Bumperboy universe. I feel like these items don't quite fit in the regular Bumperboy shop
, but they also deserve their own space. Please take a look and let me know what you think! http://bumperfriend.etsy.com
The items that I'm debuting include my needle-felted friends (such as my bears in cupcakes, and a needle-felted Bumperboy), and my super handy collapsible purse hooks. Eventually I would like to include more items, such as small pieces of artwork.Bumperboy Facebook Page
