The dudes at The Emerald city comic con let me do the cover for the program book this year. So I drew the convention center escalators full of characters from the creators that are gonna be at the show.
They’re all or mostly all creator owned (with the exception of the Bubble gum crisis Priss)
This was lots of fun to draw, I’ll post a guide to who everyone is later.
Really happy to see SHUTTER’s Kate Kristopher on there in the upper left hanging with her pal from PROPHET.
Trekker, Sabertooth Swordsman, Usagi Yojimbo, Empowered, Too Much Coffee Man, Elfquest, Battlepug!
And: Bandette, Madman, Savage Dragon, Bone, Invincible..that chicken thing..is that from Chew? Mouseguard…anyone want to do the rest?
How adorable is this Hobonichi Techo video? ⊟
This stop-motion animation is a million times adorable, produced by Tsuneo Goda, whose Domo-Kun character you might be familiar with. I love that even though Namaiki Volc ruined these pages with chocolate, he still managed to turn those smudges into an appropriate journal entry. That’s the nature of the Techo; anything goes.
Even though we’re already three months into 2014, you can still buy a Techo (and some stencils!) from 1101, the company headed by Earthbound/Mother series creator Shigesato Itoi. Make sure to get yourself a planner — and one of these special embroidered covers if you have the cash — before Japan increases its sales tax in April (and before 1101 closes the shop temporarily due to the increase later this month).
