RED & WHITE SHOW THIS WEEKEND!

calgaryredandwhiteSo you remember how I was saying I have two shows back-to-back in September?  Well, now there’s THREE.

I will be exhibiting at the Calgary Red & White Expo this weekend on Sunday, September 11th.  Details are on the website at http://www.comicandtoy.ca/shows-list/2016/9/11/fall-comic-toy-expo !

It’s a one-day-only show, smaller and more intimate than the other Expo-type shows I exhibit at, but the great thing is that gives me more time to connect with fans and the fans, more time to browse without feeling hurried or rushed or intimidated by crowds.  It’s a real feel-good atmosphere for everyone and I always love being at this show!

I’m launching some new items this month, including copies of Gloaming #2, and a special convention edition of Spectrum #1!

Other new merchandise at the con will include:  Krampuspresso buttons, and a new corporate-logo button:  GARBUCKS.  That’s right, Gargoyles have taken over your local Starbucks and re-branded it.  If you like green apron coffee and supernatural creatures, you’ve simply got to stop by the Two Gargoyles table at the Expo.

And hey, remember your ABC’s– you know my Superhero Groins and Superheroine Boobs posters?  Well now, I’ve made a deck of playing cards– that’s right, playing cards– all 52 guy and gal parts now adorn a deck you can play with!

Also, don’t forget there will be scads of poster prints available as well as stickers and magnets!  Come on down and see– doors open at 10 a.m. and the show runs til 5!

Calgary Red & White Club Show!

michaelbaymaxAlthough it was a small, one-day show, the Calgary Red and White Expo was great for Twogargs’ sales!  Although larger shows may offer more traffic for Artist’s Alley, smaller, more intimate shows give one a much greater chance of connecting with one’s audience!  Sales were good, and having time and space to chat with fans and peers alike made this show a “must-do” for the future.  Already looking into next September’s show!

Highlights were:  sharing a table with Kyle Burles — he has such good energy and as the artist on Gloaming, adds an extra bit of oomph to sales (and fan discussions of ) our comic at the table.

There’s a definite community “feel” to the show; our group of friends have been attending it for years now– this was our first time exhibiting at it.  Familiar faces, veterans of the comic and toy collecting communties, and family events like a kid’s costume show (but seriously, guys, TURN DOWN YOUR MICROPHONE)!  It was a good feeling and a great way for kids to get a little break from the hubbub of “Back to School.”

My personal highlight?  I MET BAYMAX.  So there.

BIG WEBSITE ANNOUNCEMENT!

You may already be aware that twogargs.com is updating, going through some changes.  Part of the reason is that, starting today, Twogargs will be making its comics AVAILABLE FOR VIEWING ONLINE.  Yup, you read that correctly– there is now a “Comics Archive” link at the top of the home page that will take you to our comics page where you can read what you’ve been missing or re-visit old favourites!  I’ve started with Diaperman, the comic that started it all– I’m posting pages from the Complete Series Graphic Novel– including the writer/artist commentary written by me, Michael McAdam, and original artist Mike Rieger.

I’ll be posting a new page every day so you can follow along.  Also, there’s a series category for “Behind the Scenes” — in which one-shots like “Two Gargoyles Texting” will pop up every so often!  If you like randomness, you’ll like Behind the Scenes.

Onward and upward!

–Michael
