Well, in case you are unaware, I have been running a Kickstarter campaign for WORN TUFF ELBOW #2. This is the follow up to the first issue that appeared in 2004. You can see the cover above, I resisted the urge to add Christmas hats to the occupants in the design; maybe later. The Kickstarter has reached it’s modest goal of $4000 CAD. I didn’t take into account the high Canadian shipping rates tracking against the total but that is ok, it’s been a success and I am grateful for it. The book has just been sent to the printer.
And so: we have added a pre-order for the comic book here at the site. If you buy from here, you’ll be able to buy more than one copy, signed or unsigned, so please feel free to do so.
In other news, last week I completed a Cartoonist Diary at tcj.com where you can read all about the trials and tribulations of running a Kickstarter campaign and attending an art residency at the same time. While at the residency I prepared work for and opened a show at Weird Things in Toronto. Some large scale “drawings” made on canvas with paint markers. In fact I am still at the residency and I am working on one more large piece (5′ by 5′).
