I am not sure why I keep doing these

I have started to do some paintings to sell at MoCCA next weekend. To the best of my recollection I've never sold more that one painting at a show (maybe two) but that kind of drives me to try to be less of a failure at it. Anyway here is what I managed so far.



Tomorrow: MOON MUMMY DILEMMAS

John, they are both awesome! Can I put first dibs on, well, either of them if the people at MoCCA are foolish enough to not snaffle them up in an instant? Oh, how I pray they are foolish!

Good luck with going to New York to MoCCA. I might be heading up there if my plans fall through for saturday. Though, I doubt they will. (Im only about. an hour and a half away. by train. They're faster than cars because there isnt traffic.)

<3 They're definitley gorgeous. Your style is amazing. :)

You should let Ryan North kidnap you and bring you back to Toronto so as to make the purchase of a painting more convenient.

I look forward to seeing / harassing you in person soon. Should you need any recommendations on ways to occupy yourself in New York... well probably talk to Andy Bell or Jon Rosenburg. But if you need any others just ask.

I'm not sure why you ever were not doing these. I am not long in the money, but if I were I'd snap up the first one. (note: the second one is nice, too)

you should come to ohio. it's, erm, very nice here? i'll buy you dinner at a fairly nice restaurant! :D

You should do MORE lovely paintings like these. Watercoloring is the perfect whimsical medium for your characters!

Sell them online so I can get my hands on one! It's really no fair that you just bring them with you when you travel, because you never come to California (lately, now that I have some extra greenbacks to fan around).

How much will these run at MoCCA? Or would you rather that only be for those who go? I suppose I can just wait to ask you in person.

(in person!!!)

I'll more than likely be wearing my Saddest Wookie shirt, as it is my favorite shirt, so I'll see you there. Rather, you can see me through a crowd.

These are lovely, John.

Nice paintings! Shame I'm a) 4,000 miles away and b)completely broke. Also - love your Sufjan Stevens poster in today's comic! Along with the "Keighley" designer wear in one of your earlier strips, it's one of my favourite references you've done.

If you end up bringing the first of those paintings home, I'll buy it from you.

They're awesome. Also, the first runner-up of SGR Idol is awesome - mainly because the artist is clearly a massive film geek. Did anyone else know that it actually IS chocolate syrup running down the plughole in "Psycho"? Apparently stage blood looked too pale in black and white.
