:new: Tiff and I are going to be out of town next week. In the interim, I'm going to try and bang out some more work, so I just wanted to let everybody know that I'm going to be more or less radio-silent for the next two weeks. See you on the flip! :highfive:

:new: Hey, hey! So it turns out that the table location we got wasn't as good as we had originally expected. Yes, our table was directly in front of a choke-point, so we were the first thing anybody saw if they entered the 2nd room! :la: Unfortunately, the sign leading to the 2nd room was black and white and pretty plain and I think a lot of people didn't notice it. I heard a lot of people say either that they were just noticing the 2nd room very late or that upon walking in there were a lot fewer people in there. Bob Corby who organizes SPACE heard the same reports and started announcing on the PA, "please remember we have a 2nd room". I understand, it's not their fault - these are the kinds of things that happen when you have an event at a new location, which was necessary when their previous hotel location folded without real warning. There's always a learning curve.

Despite that, this was the best event I've had so far! :la: And I even saw someone I didn't expect to see who had bought Woohooligan Vol 1. Into Dorkness a few months ago at RathaCon. He was telling a friend of his how good he thought my first book was. :la:

My friend Angel, who shared the table with me didn't do quite so well. We both met some cool people, but she got almost no sales. I could tell it was a real blow for her. She does a ton of conventions (mostly anime) and because she busts her ass, she always walks away with at least a hundred in profit, but this time didn't break even. (I think a lot of her product - at least what she chose to display prominently - appeals more to the anime crowd. So I think her sales really reflect a different audience at this event.) Since I wanted to be supportive, I gave her a break on her half of the gas and table-fees. I'd also like to ask you wonderful folks to have a look at her work and if you like it and can afford it, pick something up from her store to help her out with her upcoming trip next week.



Thanks, Hooligans! Stay awesome!



Hey guys! I just wanted to let you know that I'll be at SPACE in Columbus on the 18th and 19th of this month and then I'll be out of town the last week.

We'll be sharing the booth with our friend Angel Melzak. :iconkuroitenshi13:

You can get more info about the SPACE event here: www.backporchcomics.com/space.…

So this months comic updates will probably be a bit more sparse than in the past couple of months.

Also congrats to StarDragger who won our last Patreon monthly commission raffle. :) patreon.com/woohooligan

Stay awesome, Hooligans!

:new: Check out the sweet booth location we snagged!

Hi! I'm Sam and I bet laughing is the best part of your day! Laughing gets you out of bed in the morning and makes a hard job easier. The best and truest friendships are forged in laughter. Laughter and the dark arts, those are the two glues of true and loyal friendship. That's why I've made it my mission to make people laugh since 2006, and if you'd like to help me do that, you can join me on Patreon, or just check out and share our comics at Woohooligan!

:bulletblue: I have lots of sources of inspiration like Gary Larson, kevinbolk, humon, Warner Brothers cartoons, public radio and cognitive science. I'm always looking for new material and challenging new projects.

:bulletblue: I'm a moderator for the-devart-comics where I publish Gutter Stars smolderingremains.deviantart.c… , a series of editorial interviews with dedicated webcomic authors who could use some more exposure.

:bulletblue: I also created the Critoons group to help me give back to the community and keep my commitment to write critiques for other artists every month.

:bulletblue: I'm a big believer in progress smolderingremains.deviantart.c… , both in my work smolderingremains.deviantart.c… and in the world at large! :nod: Whatever you're doing, do it bold, take risks, make mistakes and learn from them, and you can change the world! :D

:bulletblue: I created the DFWTX group and was the local liaison for Texasdevmeet because I wanted to meet more artists in my home town. :D Since then I purchased my first home in Dayton, Ohio!
:icondfwtx: :icontexasdevmeet:

I was born and raised in Dallas TX. There's a statue of my great-great grandfather, George Bannerman Dealey in downtown Dallas in Dealey Plaza just across the street from the old red courthouse museum. He was the editor and later owner of the Dallas Morning News and a great person who really helped to build the community, stood up to the KKK and stood up for people facing hardships. Heck, when he owned the newspaper, he refused advertising money from oil companies because he couldn't tell the difference between a good oil company and a bad one and didn't want sham oil companies advertising to his patrons. :D

And now I'll leave you with one of my favorite quotes from Bob Dylan: any man not busy being born is busy dying. :nod:

Like I said, the story moves a lot faster now that Amy's in Heaven. :D

Really proud of the art in this update. :nod: There's always plenty of room for me to grow, obviously, but I think I really nailed some pretty challenging panels here. :la:
