Admittedly, I don’t make very many sales on my online store The Poet and the Flea Market, so I get very excited when I do! The best part is sending my work all over the world — UK, Australia, Sweden, Czech Republic…

Right now, I’m trying to finish the first volume (95 pages) of The Poet and the Flea and could use a little extra cash to pay for various supplies including ink refills, replacement nibs, and Bristol board. So I’ve decided to create a special end of the year deal on The Poet and the Flea Market to encourage everyone to order now!

Buy any one or more items on The Poet and the Flea Market (thepoetandtheflea.storenvy.com) starting today (October 24th, 2014) to the end of 2014 (December 31st, 2014), receive one POET OVAL BUTTON (see image below) as a FREE GIFT (while supplies last)!!!

Button 2

Furthermore, buy any one or more items on The Poet and the Flea Market (thepoetandtheflea.storenvy.com) on November 28th — William Blake’s birthday — and receive (in addition to the button) one 5-by-7-inch, full-color ART PRINT as a FREE GIFT (just remember to indicate the name of the print under “Instructions to merchant,” otherwise you’ll receive a random one)!!!

Fox Dog Zine Color

5″ x 7″ Print: “The Quick Brown Fox Jumps Over The Lazy Dog”

Dreamer Death

5″ x 7″ Print: “Death and the Dreamer”

 5" x 7" Print: "To Generalize is to be an Idiot" ($2)

5″ x 7″ Print: “To Generalize is to be an Idiot”

Thank you very much for your support and I look forward to filling your orders!!!

Although I was skeptical beforehand, I had an absolute blast at DC Zinefest! I sold way more than I ever imagined I would and I met so many awesome people.

I sat next to Santiago “Santi” Casares (Chili’s World), who was wonderful! We chatted through the whole event and looked after each other’s tables. I even picked up one of his mini-comics to add to my zine collection. :) Santi also told me about DC Conspiracy and Magic Bullet, both of which I’d love to get involved with.

Jonas (Bad Liver and A Broken Heart, Cheer The Eff Up) sat on my other side — he seemed like a DC Zinefest celebrity!!! I didn’t talk to him until the very end, but he was really great and we even exchanged zines. Can’t wait to take a look at his work!

Surprisingly, Ramsey Beyer (Little Fish) was there. I thought I would see her at SPX since I saw her there last year, but there she was. And it turns out she won’t be at SPX this year, so I’m glad to have seen her.

It was awesome meeting Robert Mitchell Jr. :D He writes fiction and draws comics, but is also into martial arts! He also gave me a bunch of his zines including a 44-page comic called Cabal Fang, in which he combines all of his interests. I’m excited to take a closer look!

C.S. Malerich of The 13th Faery, who I met earlier this year at the Smudge Comics Arts Expo, was tabling for the first time. I was very excited to get my hands on a copy of The 13th Faery’s first zine Raiders from the North, or From Eeeeeek to Zut! You can also check out her work at csmalerich.com.

Experience of Smudge Comics Arts Expo 2014

Smudge was an interesting experience. Firstly, it was held in a very lovely space in the Artisphere. And, because it was only one day (rather than the usual two), it was pretty crowded throughout the whole event. The one thing that drove me crazy though was that they played soundtrack music consisting primarily of Darth Vader’s theme for most of the day for no apparent reason. But overall I met some nice people who I’ll most likely see again at SPX in September and discovered that there’s a lot of interest in Scared Stiff. :)
