Pico Day Plans!

2016-05-05 03:05:13 by AtroxChobatsu

Hey all! It's been a while since I used this new post thing for anything, huh?

Just putting it out there that I'll be attendign Pico Day this year! I've never been before, but I hear it's a lot of fun! I'm real excited to hang out with other animators, especially my Yotta compatriots. I hope I make a good impression...

How about you guys? Will I see any of you there? Maybe we could chat for a while or do whatever's fun there! I'll even bring Artist Trading cards if you guys wanna have little art trades. 

I'll also be bringing copies of my comic; Outside the Lines. It's fairly new, and it's about cartoon characters looking for work in the real world. Definitely inspired by Who Framed Roger Rabbit (My all-time favorite film) but set in modern times with a greater focus on the characters. The story also draws parallels to animation history and the nature of the industry. Animation and cartoons are my #1 passion, and this comic is my love letter to the cartoon business. 


I'll have a few copies on hand if anyone's interested, for $7 each (30% off the online price). I'll even sign it for you, with a doodle to boot! I'll also be carrying some character pins for $1 each (20% off!)


I can only carry so much though, so supplies will be VERY limited.

Also to sweeten the deal and keep in the spirit of toons and comedy, if you can tell me a joke that makes me laugh out loud, I will let you have the comic for $5. If it just makes me frown, you'll get something else.

Anyway! Hope to see some of you there! :D Safe travels, and thanks for T◔◔ning in!

AtroxChobatsu responds:

You got it! ;D

I haven't seen your comic before but i love the idea and the art you've shown in this post. Hope i can get my grubby hands on one! I'm also bringing some character pins, maybe we can swapsies? : )

And also safe travels!

AtroxChobatsu responds:

Sure! We can do that! :D

I'm pulling out my best two jokes for this one.

AtroxChobatsu responds:

Lead with your best! You only get one shot!


2016-05-06 06:42:53

You'll see me there, big boy. ;}

Dang, wish I could be there! That comic looks amazing! :D

How about an after-action report? I was only a 100 miles away, but couldn't get there, certainly would've bought a copy or two of your comic, and been very pleased to meet you. How many pages in Outside the Lines, it's not listed on the purchase page?

Hope you have a great time meating everyone, and took away what you needed to persevere :3

AtroxChobatsu responds:

I should do that! Better do it while the events are fresh in my mind.

The first chapter has 23 pages!

I usually wait until there's at least 2-3 items before taking the plunge with a proven artist, such as yourself. Getting issue #1 is always a hoot, but getting the first 2 copies is a slam dunk. I used to dabble in comic book buying just before the turn of the century, more or less for my own whimsy, not for $/investment, otherwise, I sure as hell would bought The Maxx and Sin City, but they were just a bit to pricey for my weekly read.

And yeah, get with the recollections already, not too many people get to be superstars at a swinging party ya know |: and we both know it's more than that....

Anyway, I'm getting 2 copies just in case someone I know wants one, if you're mailing them, could you sign at least one to me? ...you really should list this http://smokingpencil.storenvy.com/ along with your other links on this page via 'account settings'

AtroxChobatsu responds:

Sure thing, I can do that!

Oh snap, that's a good idea. Would you believe I still have yet to do a PicoDay followup? :'D I better set aside some time this weekend to catch NG up on my goingson.

AtroxChobatsu responds:

Hey! Well, it's not viewable online (yet). I'm working on making a buffer before I start putting up any pages online, else I run into a hiatus really quickly.

However, you can nab a physical copy mega-early from here!:


Every copy gets signed too! :D

Thanks for the signed and 'tooned copy brother, worth every penny! The quality of the print was superior... will that company do more than 2 dozen pages per comic? BTW, what were those symbols on the envelope? They kinda looked like old 'do not bend' signs, but can't be sure since my ancient reference books are in storage... you weren't tipping off the illuminati, were you?!

AtroxChobatsu responds:

Glad to hear it! :D Yeah, i think Kablam can do way more pages than that. I think they go up to 60? I'd have to check.

Oh those are just runes and patches to keep the toons from spilling out. They're quite slippery creatures!
