It’s March, and Spring is almost here. Your March 2017 update.
I’ve got a new trilogy of illustrations for you this month, based on Edgar Wright’s hilarious Cornetto Trilogy. The trio of films (including the zombie comedy Shaun of the Dead, the buddy cop parody Hot Fuzz, and the scifi spoof The World’s End) is called the Cornetto Trilogy because each one features a different flavor of Cornetto ice cream cone. Not super deep, but the movies are hilarious! Merch is available printed on tees, stickers, canvas, clocks, bedding, towels, rugs, iPhone cases, and much, much more. Visit my store or click the images below.
Patreon Cancelled; Perhaps a Kickstarter Campaign?
Anyone who knows me well knows that I hate to have to admit defeat. However, I must face reality. My Patreon campaign is dramatically underperforming and there’s no way I can keep it going without funding. It’s actually costing me money, which cannot be allowed to continue if I’m going to stay in business. However, there has been some interest from fans that they’d be into supporting a Kickstarter campaign for an illustrated book. Would you be interested in that? What sorts of bonus gifts would entice you to pledge? Let me know in the comments, or shoot me a message on Facebook, and I’ll put together a campaign. You can see the caricatures I drew in January and February in the image above. The book would include sketches, line art, and expanded illustrations for each celeb.
Top sellers for February 2017
Both of my top sellers for February were repeats, which is fine by me. The first is my bulldog caricature; these mostly sold on stickers. (Get your own furry friend illustrated at DoodleMyDog.com) The other was my St. Patrick tee, likely from customers getting ready for St. Patrick’s Day in just two weeks. (Make sure to order yours before it’s too late!) Click the images to be taken to my online shops.
My artwork is available on stickers, shower curtains, clocks, dresses, notebooks, canvas, iPhones, tees, blankets, towels, and much more. Every social media like and share is appreciated, too! I’m on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. Please follow me for new artwork posted… pretty often.
Top blog post for February 2017
My top post for February was once again my very popular post, “Top Five Reasons I Don’t Argue Politics on Facebook (Anymore).” Frankly, I’m sick of non-stop Trump on social media, pro or con. There’s nothing else happening in your life? Anyway, you can read my post here, or by clicking the image. I’ve potentially got another paid writing gig coming up, so stay tuned to my blog for updates. Thanks for reading!
I’m on Steemit…
If you clicked the link above, it took you to Steemit, and not my blog. Steemit is a social media site that pays you cryptocurrency (called Steem) for popular posts. Think Facebook, but instead of making Mark Zuckerberg rich, you’re helping yourself and the online community. Click here to check it out; please follow me and help upvote my posts!
Minds is a new social media platform similar to Twitter, but it seems to be more user friendly. They don’t censor posts, and you can monetize your page, if you wish. I haven’t monetized yet, but I’ve started posting and picking up subscribers. Check it out and follow me here.
Now that Valentine’s Day is over, I’ve opened my commissions once again. I’ll draw your loved ones, your pets, your favorite celebs, or you! (Caricatures make great birthday and wedding gifts!) Use the contact form below (or click here) to discuss your project.
Thanks reading, and thanks for your continued support. My book should be out shortly, so stay tuned! Please use the contact form below if you have any suggestions, comments, or inquiries.
