Bike News…

If you hadn’t heard, my bike was stolen. And then probably sold. And then showed up near my office, as though someone had biked it to work and locked it up. So now it’s locked up, with my lock and someone else’s, downstairs. You can read all about it here. 

Super Art Fight News!

You’ve heard me speak—at length—about Super Art Fight. After being asked if it will ever come to the midwest, the west coast, Europe, etc., we have good news. We’ve brought it online. So we’ve brought it everywhere.

You can now watch Super Art Fights online in our first Online Invitational Tournament. Watch this episode below, and you can vote for the winner here.

We’re releasing a new episode every Tuesday for the next month, so you can follow all the action and choose the winners of each bracket.

That show I talked about from last weekend? Rounds 2 and 3 are now online, thanks to a fan in attendance! Check out why Noelle Stevenson is one of the best art fighters I’ve ever seen.

This is a convention show from Anime Expo. For the full experience, you want to come to one of our “club shows” we do in Baltimore and DC (and hopefully soon other cities).

So WATCH THIS. Kill an hour. Post below who’s funnier, Ross or Marty.

Seriously had to look up a flange.

This one was last week’s Medium post, but I added some details and tweaked it into a poster design. It’ll be for sale at HilariAwesome.com soon.

Speaking of which, this week’s Medium post is pretty awesome. It’s called “What is the best gift to get someone?” and here’s an excerpt:

In case you’re semi-new to my site and wondering why I’m posting about Super Art Fight, I’m one of the owners / MC’s / design director of the thing. It is something very close to my heart that I absolutely love, and if you ever get the chance to attend one you very much should.

The world may never know.

Don’t worry, the cat is okay.

Kickstarter Will Be Shoved In Your Face Until Preorders Improve

Still happening! For just $10 you get a digital copy of the book, and for $25 you get the book and, if we raise another $800 or so, a poster AND a digital copy of the book. To be honest, I’m so busy at work I haven’t had much time to shout to Reddit, BoingBoing, and wherever else I can think of about the project so if you have a chance to share it on the forums, blogs, and social medias you visit I would consider that as much of a gesture as supporting it with money. Please and thanks!

I also just added a new reward level, for $40 you get 2 copies of the book. I’ve overdone it with the exclamation points today, but I’m pretty excited about that. Hope you are too.

Like I said in 640, our show at Awesome Con was pretty amazing. Steve McBarnes was kind enough to post videos of the first two (of a total of 3) rounds, so here they are! The second round featured Michael Bracco and Noelle “Gingerhaze” Stevenson, and you’re about to be blown away by how awesome it gets. Seriously art fighting at it’s best.

Round 1

End of Round 1, Beginning Round 2

Round 3

If you’re ever at a Super Art Fight show, take video. We love when we find this stuff.

The System 626: Exasturbation

I’m still deciding if I’m really going to make the next comic about “procrasturbation”. Also, thanks to Systemics Marty and Grace for help figuring out how to write this one. I can’t say it took the whole month but I was a little stuck.

Super Art Fight at the Black Cat on February 22nd!

In an ongoing effort to pretend to be a rock star, the Super Art Fight crew (including myself) is playing a show in Washington, DC at the legendary Black Cat rock club! I couldn’t be more excited. February 22nd, 9:30pm doors, $12 tickets, all ages. More details and info on preorders here.

I’m talking about comics and stuff in Baltimore!

I’m giving a talk called “How Comics Can Make Us Better Designers” to the web/design/development community in Baltimore as part of “Refresh Baltimore” on February 26th. It’ll be based upon but a revised and awesomer version of the talk I gave at Refresh last fall. It’s free. You should come! Here’s the EventBrite. Here’s the other details.

I’d love to see some Systemics in the crowd, and I’ll have time to answer all the questions people have on design and comics and stuff. Let me know if you can make it!

This morning was kinda weird and fun, I got to Baltimore and be on the 98 Rock morning show promoting tomorrow’s big Super Art Fight show at The Ottobar (tickets still available!). They had on the show all morning guest Darrel Hammond from SNL fame, and he was a great sport when I put him on the spot to say “WHEEL OF DEATH” in his Don Pardo voice. What you can’t hear in this bit is that we were FREAKING OUT because being on morning radio isn’t exactly something we’d done before, but I think we handled it pretty well.
