Hey, if you’re in Manchester this weekend, come to MCM Comic Con and say hi! Here’s a map here showing where I’ll be. Hint- it is right near the FOODS. Bring me a cup of tea, if you will. No sugar, just a splash of milk.
Thanks to those who’ve pledged so far to the Patreon campaign to make OCTOPUS PIE IN COLOR! If you haven’t, here is the info:
I’m forming plans to do Octopus Pie in FULL COLOR in the near future! The comic has been in black & white for 7 years, and I think it’s time to try something new that will really enrich the comic.
To be sure, I’ll need your help for this. I would be employing a colorist, so I’ve made this a priority as the next goal of my Patreon Campaign. If we hit $2400 in pledges a month, it’ll be enough to keep me eating and happy, AND working with a great colorist to produce 10 full color pages. If you love the comic but haven’t pledged, this is a great opportunity to do something that directly affects the art. It doesn’t need to be much - even a buck or two per month will help towards the goal! Pledges over $2 will also give you access to the sketches and vintage OP art I post to Patreon.
I’ll reblog this in the morning, when Australia is actually awake, but…
I collaborated with some fellow political tragics on this info-thing about the Abbott government’s proposed changes to Medicare and the pharmaceutical benefits scheme, based on this study from the University of Sydney (PDF).
