ICON Filler Doodle #1 April 4, 2008 Posted by Mookie
I felt the need to post little commentaries with this weekend's filler doodles while I'm off causing trouble at ICON.

Maybe I've just been playing too much Rock Band lately, but I've always known Donovan was in a band as a young man. Probably quite a few. This was his first, and these guys were lots of fun to doodle, especially the flamboyant elf drummer.

I don't know what they called themselves, but if you want an idea as to how they may have sounded give a listen to "Whisky Train" by Procul Harum. That song is old-school and awesome enough to make me think of Donovan whenever I hear it.

There are still two more crummy filler doodles to come while I'm off at ICON this weekend.
Iconic filler doodle warning! April 3, 2008 Posted by Mookie
Tomorrow I'm off to ICON 27 and I hope to see you folks there.

There will be crummy filler doodles for Friday, Saturday and Sunday, I'm afraid. Sorry about that. There will be a normal comic up on Monday unless otherwise noted.

April's Donation Wallpapers will go up next week.

Like I said, this weekend I'm going to be returning to ICON! Stop by and say "hi" if you're in the area!
An iconic news post! March 31, 2008 Posted by Mookie
The only big news to report today is that I'll be a Guest at ICON 26 this weekend, so if you're in the area please stop by and say "hi!" I'll be selling the usual swag as well as a very limited number of Dominic Deegan scarves. I'm not sure if I'll be speaking on any panels, but I'll keep you folks informed if they tell me anything prior to the show.

There may or may not be even more crummy filler doodles while I'm gone. Again, I'll keep you folks up-to-speed.

Now if you'll all excuse me, I must expend a great deal of energy to not play Rock Band so I can get some work done for ICON this weekend. See you there!

I'm way behind on sending out this month's Donation Wallpapers. If you haven't received yours yet, I humbly apologize for the delay. You ought to be getting your wallpapers at some point today.

And there is, indeed, no rest for the wicked. In approximately one week I'll be a Guest at ICON 26. I'll be amongst the fan tables up near the registration area, so be sure to stop by and say "hi" on your way down to that mammoth dealer's room. ICON has a special place in my heart because it was the first convention my father ever took me to. It's always a pleasure to return there and I look forward to seeing you folks there.

After that I get a break... and then I'll be attending, in order:
A-Kon
Portcon Maine
ConnectiCon
Otakon

Got me a full schedule coming up. Hope to see you folks around!
Ridiculous! March 24, 2008 Posted by Mookie
Anime Boston was, as I've said all weekend, absolutely crazy. I can't remember the last time I felt so drained after three days at a convention. It may have been the ridiculously long hours in the Artist's Alley. It may have been the ridiculous amount of people walking the halls of the Hynes Convention Center. It may have been the ridiculously long lines that people were waiting on, which were rumored to have a ten-hour wait for registration at some point. It may have been the ridiculous amounts of love I was shown by the lovely folks who stopped by to say "hi." Whatever it was, this year's Anime Boston was one for the record books.

I'll have pictures and links up tomorrow, since there are plenty of both and I'm still unwinding from the weekend.

Thanks to everyone who came by and said "hi" to yours truly. I cannot express my gratitude enough to you all for making such a draining weekend one of the most memorable.
Better than anything I could do this weekend. March 23, 2008 Posted by Mookie
Here's a nice piece of fan art that a lovely young lady did of me while attending the "webcomics jam" panel I was a part of. I honestly forget what I said to make her draw me looking so diabolical, but I think the picture is awesome and I figured I'd share it.

Anime Boston continues to be absolutely insane.
I'm honestly surprised I made it out of there yesterday with my sanity in one piece.

Only one more day to go.
*gasp... wheeze...* March 22, 2008 Posted by Mookie
Anime Boston is insane.
This crummy little filler doodle that has absolutely nothing to do with anything is literally all I had time for all day.

There's been talk of the eight to nine hour wait on the registration line alone, so you can imagine how many people have swarmed Boston's mammoth Hynes Convention Center.

And there's still today to deal with.

Yikes.
I like "yerf" and the madness of Anime Boston. March 21, 2008 Posted by Mookie
Today is the first day of ANIME BOSTON, and if the pre-registration line yesterday was any indication of the madness about to engulf this city... well, let's just say I hope I make it out in one piece.

There will be crummy filler doodles for both Saturday and Sunday while I'm at the convention, but Monday's strip will be a full-color full-page Sunday style update. I do hope you folks like it.

And for those of you coming to Anime Boston... see you there!
I'm very proud of my abs... or... AB. March 17, 2008 Posted by Mookie
ANIME BOSTON is right around the corner, my friends! As a matter of fact, it's this upcoming weekend! I missed this behemoth of a convention last year so I'm super excited to be returning to the Hynes Convention Center and all the madness it will contain.

I'll be in the Artist's Alley once again, so if you're in the area be sure to stop by and say "hi!" I'll have copies of SEER'S DIGEST and ECSTASY & EVIL as well as the Charity Shirt I was going to sell at Neo Nohcon. All money from the sales of the Charity Shirts will still be going to the Matthew Foster Foundation.

I'll also be debuting a new t-shirt design I came up with. It has nothing to do with the comic itself but it applies more to being a webcomicker... and I've always wanted to put that phrase onto a t-shirt. So I did. Later on it'll be put it up for sale at the Dominic Deegan ZeStuff store so you can get it if you can't make it to Anime Boston.

I'm not sure if the strip will update this weekend. Even though the convention is in the same city as me, Anime Boston is insane and exhausting. If I have to resort to crummy filler sketches again, you'll all be properly warned.

That's all from me for now!
Hope to see you at ANIME BOSTON!
Tradition is tradition. March 14, 2008 Posted by Mookie
I feel like this is one of the dirtier jokes I've had in the strip for a while. Oh well. It's not like raunchy comments and Gregory Deegan are anything new around here. Gave me the chuckles when I wrote it, too.

Not much to say at the end of the week here except that ANIME BOSTON is next weekend, so that ought to be all sorts of insane. I won't be doing my Writing Unique Heroes & Memorable Villains panel there this year, as I stupidly missed the panel submission deadline, but I will be on a "webcomics jam" panel on Friday night. I'll also be debuting a new t-shirt at the con. I'll have pictures of it next week.

That's all from me for now!
Let it snow, let it... aw, it's freaking March. March 10, 2008 Posted by Mookie
I want to say NEO NOHCON was a blast this weekend, but it wasn't... because it didn't happen. The major snowstorm that hit us this weekend caused the convention to be canceled, much to my disappointment. Learning of this only after I arrived in snowy Buffalo, NY certainly complicated things as well.

That's not to say I didn't have a great weekend anyway. I had the pleasure of hanging out with the Daemen College Anime Club, the organizers of the convention, who took very good care of me despite the harsh weather. You folks were beyond awesome and I cannot express my gratitude enough for your generosity and endearing craziness. Much love to Annie, DeeDee, Bear, Roshi, James, Tinky, Daneesha, and everyone else whose names I have either misspelled or forgotten.

I also had the pleasure of hanging out with the small squad of guests that were also around for the convention. Much love and hugs to Samantha Inoue Harte, Kyle Hebert, Lucien Dodge, and Professor Brent Wilson & his lovely wife Marge. Oh, and Li and Akiko? I'm sorry we didn't get to hang out more. Oh, and Jonathan? F-ck you, Colonel.

Next up is the insanity that is ANIME BOSTON. I'll be selling the Charity Shirt there alongside the usual merchandise and all proceeds will still go to the Matthew Foster Foundation.
Quicklets. March 6, 2008 Posted by Mookie
Just a couple of quick tidbits of information as we approach the weekend.

March's Donation Wallpapers are up. Four weird sisters and a psycho seer. I hope you like them!

There will be crummy filler doodles while I'm at NEO NOHCON this weekend, but only for Saturday and Sunday. Friday's strip will go up normally.

That's all from me for now!
See you at NEO NOHCON!
Once more into the breach, dear friends! March 3, 2008 Posted by Mookie
For those of you who are keeping count, yesterday's strip was comic number 1666, which I thought was neat because Celesto looked all devilish and the number of the comic had a 666 in it. I mean, yeah, it would've been a thousand times more appropriate if it was a picture of The Infernomancer, Karnak or Siegfried... but I'll take what I can get.

Anyway, the big news this week is that I'll be at NEO NOHCON this weekend. As I said before, the only bit of merchandise I'll have at this convention will be the Dominic Deegan charity shirt and all sales will go to the Matthew Foster Foundation. So if you're in the area, stop by and say "hi" so we can do something nice for a great cause.

There may or may not be filler doodles this weekend while I'm at the con. I'll let you folks know more as we near the weekend.

March's Donation Wallpapers will be up before I head to the convention. Promise.

That's all from me for now!
Sister-brother-what-now? February 27, 2008 Posted by Mookie
Yeah, I realized Quilt's dialogue is a little off in the first panel there a little too late. He just called Luna's sister Dominic's brother, and I totally didn't mean to have him do that. I guess I could go and fix it, but to be honest I kinda like his goofed-up dialogue. I think it fits him in a "happy accident" sort of way. Besides, I like leaving little mistakes in the strip.

In any case, here's the shirt I'll be selling on behalf of the Matthew Foster Foundation at NEO NOHCON. Like I said in my previous news post it'll be the only item I'll be selling at this convention, and 100% of the sales are going to the charity.

The Dominic Deegan Charity shirt.

That's all from me for now!
