Farewell Stumptown, you were rad.

The Stumptown Comics Fest is over and it was a blur of fun. Thank you to everybody who came out to support me. One of the greatest pleasures of this weekend was realizing that people remembered me from last year and were actively seeking me out.  I was also chastised, justifiably so, for my "one issue a year" pace. I promise to pick up the pace by at least make TWO ISSUES A YEAR!!!

I updated my Etsy Store with my Stumptown leftovers today, and they are just as good today as they were yesterday. If you weren't able to make it to the show, didn't have enough cash on you, or are regretting your impulse control, head on over to the shop and go wild.

Also, I started a Mike Lawrence Illustrator facebook page (badge to the right) that is separate from my personal page. This makes me feel more professional and will also limit the spread of silly photos of me to people who aren't in my inner circle. I'm not quite sure what to do with the new page, but I'll be building it up as I think of stuff.

Now for a day of putting my studio back together. Here is a doodle of Jet Pack Jack I did on a illustration board sample some rep from Strathmore handed to me, I plan on painting it soon to see how it handles wet media.

I came to Stumptown and saw you there! Actually,I took the time to find you because I came last year and got the first chapter of The Salamander King and I had been anxiously awaiting this year's Stumptown so I could come and get the next chapter. I doubt you remember me, but I came by with my friend (I was the quiet one with the short curly hair.) I'm so excited that you're going to be writting more chapters now though! I look forward to it.

Hey Gari, thanks for seeking me out this year. Having returning fans was probably the best thing about Stumptown this year. Thanks for reading (and thanks for commenting, I love hearing from readers)!
