A tense moment between Kylo Ren and Han Stimpy.

Well, I did it.
I both exhibited at, and survived exhibiting at Supanova.

I wasn't able to post this last week, so this image ended up being exclusive to Supanova for the weekend, but I am now unleashing it on the internet for all to see.

My first convention appearance went pretty well.
The only reason I didn't make a tiny profit is because I overspent like crazy getting everything I needed.
Thanks again to everyone who came by to see my display, and double thanks to everyone who bought something.
It was really great to see people enjoying my work. It really meant a lot.

Also thanks to all my friends and family who came by to show their support. That also meant a lot.
As did the purchases that you made.

I even did a commission drawing for my brother. The request was for me to draw "the inevitable awkwardness you and I would experience after realizing we are 100 feet tall", which I think I managed to capture pretty well:

Well done to everyone who exhibited this year, especially the rest of the Something Collective group, without whom I would not have been able to attend.

Hoping I get to do this again sooner rather than later,

Breathe easy.

Firstly I would like to say that I like how Immortan Joe there turned out in this comic, and overall, I did enjoy putting that all together.
Secondly I would like to say that it took a thousand years to draw and colour this comic specifically because of Immortan Joe, and I may or may not ever draw him again.
Still, he's a cool looking character, and I hope I did him justice.

I like it anyway, and in the end, isn't that what's important?

In other news I am still rushing to get ready for Supanova, which is this weekend. Holy hell, people!
I'll be selling prints, as well as stickers, mugs, and possibly even packets of onion seeds (trust me, it'll make more sense on the day).
I also plan to do drawings on request, so you should all stop by and request something.
I will be found at booth 71, which I have subtly marked on the map below for your convenience.

Secretly hoping that I just black out and wake up in a pile of money and success,
~King Longburns.

Getting my Star Wars on.

Today's comic is the first of three that I'm putting together in preparation for my upcoming appearance at Supanova, which I have recently discovered is spelled "Supa" not "Super", so I will now refer to it as such.
Apparently they love their fan-art there, and I'm a bit behind on that kind of thing so I'm catching up.

I figured I'd bust out something a bit classy as it's a special occasion.

If you are headed to the Melbourne Supanova this year (on the 16th and 17th of April, tickets are available online or at the door) you can find me as part of the Something Collective, who will be occupying tables 68, 71, and 101 in the Alley.

Not to be confused with the alley (small a) where kids wag school and smoke cigarettes.
Kids still do that, don't they?

I plan to be busting my moves at table 71, but I encourage everyone to check out the rest of the tables as well. I will post updates if anything changes, and repeat myself ad nauseam if they don't.

By "busting my moves" I of course mean sitting and drawing.
Some traditional move-busting may also be available.

Preparing some fly moves,
~King Longburns.
