I just wanted to say thanks to everyone who's followed my work here and on Picturebook Report. I just passed two hundred posts here, and to commemorate that I'm giving a few prints away:This is the first time I've offered prints online and the first time these Hobbit prints have been available at all. This is also, I believe, the last time I will offer any prints until I buy a large-format printer (probably some time next year). All of the Hobbit prints are around 11x17", and the Transferring Risk prints are just tiny little guys.
All you've got to do to enter to win one of these is comment on this post. Anything you want. Liking this post on Google Reader nets you another chance to win, so there's an incentive to follow the blog! Tell your friends! I'll pick a few winners randomly in a week or so.
In other news, I am waist deep in Hobbit 6, and I hope to get it done sometime this week. I have been waylaid by unforeseen (and boring) work.
SPX was a great time, and everybody I met there was super great. So, if I met you there, you are super great. I hope to have a table next year.
Here is a bunch of the stuff Kali and I came home with:
edit: Since a lot of people asked, the Spider-Man print is by Joseph Lambert, who had a lot of amazing work at the show (Joe, we only met briefly! You talked mostly to my girlfriend Kali). The Captain America and Crossroads (blue) prints are from Michael Cho. We were only going to get one but couldn't decide and he was gracious enough to offer us a deal! I also bought a Cat Rackham print from Steve Wolfhard (top), who is hilarious. I picked up minicomics from a ton of awesome people, but the books Kali and I bought were Prison Pit #2 by Johnny Ryan, Indoor Voice by Jillian Tamaki, and The Venice Chronicles by Enrico Casarosa. They are, all of them, terrific.
Thanks for all the comments! The response is truly overwhelming. Contest is open until next week, so keep them coming!
