Focus. That’s the keyword for me at the moment. Focus. As in, I’m adjusting my focus in terms of What I Do. I decided to scale back on the amount of blogging I do on Clattertron and put more focus on my comics. I wrote up a longer explanation in last week’s newsletter, but the summary is: less blog posts, more comics.

This doesn’t mean zero blog posts. Not at all. It just means I won’t worry about cranking out two to three blog posts a week like I have done as of late. I want to spend more time drawing, and working on sketch cards for my up coming shows.

Free Comic Book Day at Clem’s Comics & Games in downtown Lansing was a blast. Lots of folks swung by for comics and I sold a bunch of my own comics and items. I’ll write-up a full recap this week (probably for tomorrow), but it was easily my best show day so far this year (in terms of sales).

Now, on to the next show: Cherry Capital Comic Con in Traverse City, just a few weeks away. I want to finish some more sketch cards in time for Traverse City, as they sold pretty well on FCBD and are good ‘eye catchers’ for my table.

It is Free Comic Book Day! Swing by Clem’s Comics & Games in downtown Lansing and see me, along with other Lansing area comic artists. I’ll be there at 8 AM to 11 AM (and hopefully later–check my Twitter).

I added another convention to my appearance schedule. I decided to give GrandCon, in Grand Rapids, a try. Like all the other shows I’m attending, GrandCon came highly recommended by my local comic making pals. Word of mouth really does help with this sort of thing: there’s nothing worse than trying a new con and finding out it was a waste of time (except for, I dunno, ninja?).

My comic friends have not steered me wrong yet. This is the upside to being a part of a community: getting advice, and learning. Spending the weekend at the Small Press and Alternative Comics Expo with some of my comic friends taught me a lot. Better still, it meant there were plenty of laughs.

For those keeping score at home, that’s five appearances for me in 2014. Golly. I had one in 2013 (Free Comic Book Day). Two down, three to go.

In other Clattertron news, I added a couple new prints to my Society6 store–and a couple t-shirts.

Sorry for the lack of an update last week, but I my convention weekend at SPACE (Small Press and Alternative Comics Expo) wore me out. Big time. I can’t tell what was more exhausting: the show itself, or just getting ready for the show. Regardless, I had fun and would certainly go again. SPACE is a great comics show, and I highly recommend it to anyone who loves independent comics.
