SakuraCon This Weekend

I hope everyone had a great weekend!

Jeremy and I did our guest speaking majig at Cartoonists Northwest on Saturday night. It seemed to go really well. We had a full house, had a lot of questions ask (which is what we were hoping for) and had a lot of fun. We also met some really cool local artists who are regular attendees. We were even sent some cool fanart:

So this weekend is Sakuracon, and we are nearly ready to go. We still haven’t been told exactly when the pre-show meeting is going to be Friday morning, so I’m stressing a little about that. We’re going to have pin packs for sale, so Brittany and I will be spending time this week getting those put together. They will contain 3 pins (1” diameter), one of each skull from the RPC logo. We’ll also have copies of issue one of “Here There Be Robots” available, as well as the HtbR mini “The Map Incident”. Jeremy will have copies of his book “Stupid on a Stick: A Stickguy Collection” for sale (which I was the editor for :P ). In case you didn’t get a copy of “Promo THIS!”, the first in-print HtbR pages, we have about 200 copies of that which we’ll be giving away free, so get one while they last!

It’s shaping up to look like a cool show. We’ll be in the artist’s alley all weekend, and be hanging out for a little while after words checking out the rest of the con after the dealers room closes each night.

We’ll have the same stuff available (as long as supplies hold out) at Emerald City ComiCon in two weeks (April 1, 2)

I’ve done a bit of work on the website (http://www.randompiratecomics.com/). I gave each comic its own main page now, so if there is a particular comic you enjoy, you can now bookmark that page and not have to go through the main index page. On the main page I’ve also changed it so the icon of each comic is now taken from the current page, so you can tell if it’s new at a glance!

By popular demand, I’ve also added a bit of color to the website. I had a few complaints about the pure black and white scheme that we’ve had in the past. Now there is a nifty sand background, which is a slightly modified version of the one on this blog. I also changed the skull logos at the top of the page a bit, giving them outlines.

I also finally got around to watching “Wallace and Grommit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit”, which was amazingly well done and hysterically funny. If you like the old W&G shorts and haven’t seen this yet, you really should.
