Alright, holidays are over and it’s back to the grind, but at least this was a short work week. Cap it off right with these cute kitties:

Best pet costume I saw all week — thanks, Adj!
To our fans in the areas affected by Sandy: stay strong. Our thoughts are with you. To those that aren’t, please help if you can. Canned goods are great, but they’re generally not accepted as legal tender in exchange for blankets & such. You know things are rough when we’re operating within a soup-based economy. I mean, it could be worse…but you don’t wanna know about it.
Stay safe and have fun this weekend, guys

OK, you amateur copy writers! Hit me up with your captions for this (seemingly) boozy bear in the comments below!

Where is MY 40-room mansion, sir?!
Have a great weekend, guys!

I don’t ever get to just GO to a lot of the events I sell at — IF I’m lucky (unlucky?) enough to be working a convention or trade show with occasional lulls in foot traffic and wander around, it’s never enough time to fully absorb all that the conventions have to offer, and I can never do it concurrently with Meredith, as she and I switch off who mans the fort while the other wanders.
Which is why I was SO excited to hit the 2012 Small Press Expo this past weekend with Meredith — we got to see the WHOLE show floor, and take our time at each table/booth, engaging with the artists and chatting with friends.
Here are some of our favorite new (to us) artists from the show, and where to find them:
1. K. Sekelsky, author of The Time Traveler’s Pocket Guide
Text-heavy, but in the best way possible, with perfectly executed illustrations that support the hilarious rules and tips for seasoned time travelers and noobs alike.
2. Minty Lewis, author of PS Comics
Adorable anthropomorphic foods and animals engaged in very relatable (if absurd) slice of life activities.
3. Eric Feurstein, author/illustrator of Rutabaga: Adventure Chef
Rutabaga is an adorably adventurous chef, forever seeking out the most magical and legendary ingredients, and feeding the denizens of the forest along the way!
4. MariNaomi, author/illustrator of Kiss & Tell: A Romantic Resume, Ages 0 to 22
At times cringe-inducing, at times hilarious, this auto-bio is expertly executed, drawing from the creator’s own romantic (and less-than-romantic) experiences.
5. Scott Campbell, author/illustrator of Amazing Everything: The Art of Scott C.
Cute, funny watercolor illustrations of the absurd. Difficult to describe succinctly, as Scott’s themes are wide-ranging, but really well done!
Honestly, there were so many, many other awesome creators selling wares at SPX that Meredith and I found ourselves saying “I want to buy everything!” to one another countless times over the 4 hours we spent walking through the convention hall. Some other really awesome artists to explore include:

• Kudos for the sly nod to NOT drinking and driving
In other drinking-related news:
I’ll be selling my wares this weekend (Saturday AND Sunday) at the Baltimore Comic Convention in the Baltimore Convention Center. Our good friend John at Ex-Boyfriend’s unofficial “sponsor bar” Bad Decisions is knocking a whopping 10% off the tab of anyone who comes in Saturday or Sunday wearing Ex-Boyfriend gear! A pretty sweet deal from the best bar and lifestyle label Charm City has to offer!
Admission to the con is super-cheap — just $25 for Saturday, $20 for Sunday, or $40 for both! If you’re a panicking Yankees fan, come out for the nerds during the day, catch the game across the street with us in the evening, and then get crunk at Bad Decisions to drown your sorrows after the O’s win! Just hop in the closest cab and say “Fells Point, corner of Fleet & Washington”!
Finally, if you’ve been itching to get a Fuzz Aldrin, Catnip Freakout, or Fidel Catro shirt for yourself or a friend, September is the month to do it. Why? Because Ex-Boyfriend has teamed with Jackson Galaxy and Spirit Essences to support the worthy cat rescue group Kitten Associates! Throughout the month of September, Ex-Boyfriend is donating $5 from the sale of tees & hoodies featuring these three designs to Kitten Associates, so snap ‘em up yourself, or help us spread the word!

Enjoy them (and snow) while you can, folks — the mercury hit 104 yesterday in Baltimore! Thank goodness climate change is a myth, or we’d all be in some serious trouble!

Not to toot my own horn, but my cat is a 20th level wizard and he will obliterate your hit points. Better luck next time, Carlos the Dwarf.
