Unless you’ve been under a rock for the last month or so, you’re doubt aware of the 50th anniversary of the debut of Doctor Who, which was commemorated with a heckuva blowout this past weekend.
As a big fan of the Time Lord, here’s my little contribution to the festivities. It’s a little late, but that’s par for the course.
More strips coming this week.
…I’m going to be getting some pages going… Maybe Tuesday… Wednesday at the latest!
I love traveling. I absolutely detest getting ready to travel. It’s just an opportunity for a million things to go wrong. It’s like space travel… a million things can keep you on the pad, but once the solids light, you’re going somewhere.
That somewhere is Columbus, Ohio. I’m attending the triannual Ohio State University Festival of Cartoon Art, which I’ve been waiting anxiously for since… oh, the last one. Bill Holbrook and I attended in 2010 and I have been counting the seconds until it was time for it to roll around again. This year, they will be having the Grand Opening for the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library and Museum‘s new facility. They had models and architectural renderings on display in 2010, and the plans were nothing short of spectacular. Also, speaking at the Festival will be Jeff Smith (Bone), Stephan Pastis (Pearls Before Swine), Brian Basset (Red and Rover) and Los Bros. Hernandez (Love and Rockets). Plus, Dave Kellett’s (Sheldon) documentary Stripped will be premiering at the Festival. I’m looking forward to Jeff Smith’s presentation of classic Looney Tunes cartoons!
Good news is that Accidental Centaurs is updating. I’m trying to have strips done for next week before I go. There will be updates through Friday at least!
Also, I’ve started making some Accidental Centaurs and other products in Zazzle. Please take a look and consider a purchase. Proceeds from these sales help keep Accidental Centaurs going.
I’ve also added a tip jar. Some of you have asked about this for a while, and here ya go. I realize that some folks may not like PayPal. They’re not perfect, but they’re still light years ahead of any other way to do this. You don’t need a PayPal account… If you don’t have one, it’s just like any other credit-card-over-the-internet-type deal. Again, proceeds go to keeping Accidental Centaurs going.
I’m working on a plan to get more affordable books out in the marketplace. I just got a sample of a book that will allow me to do about 24-36 pages in FULL COLOR for a reasonable price. More details as they become available.
It’s been a while since I’ve mentioned the various books I’ve collected Accidental Centaurs into. This is very important, because book sales are the only source of revenue I currently have from Accidental Centaurs, which takes considerable time and resources to produce. Revenue from the books keeps the strip going, so when I ask you to consider buying a collection or three, I’m really asking you to support the production of this comic.
There’s a complete list of everything available, simply by clicking the “Buy Accidental Cenataurs“ link up on the navigation menu. That’s a simple, one-stop shop for everything AC related. I realize that some of these items are pricey, but consider that except for the Omnibus, the books are in full color, which very expensive—and the Omnibus is over 400 pages of centaury goodness.. So, while I know the items are priced somewhat steep (a consequence of print-on-demand and full color), I try to compensate for that with value. And, if you’re having pinch pennies until Lincoln screams, consider the eBook, which provides all the color, but at a fraction of the price.
And don’t forget to sign up for NSFW Friday! If you have to ask what NSFW Friday is… well… you probably shouldn’t be asking…
