Denver ComicFest

So last weekend I was in the Artist Alley at Denver Comicfest for the third year in a row.  I would have to say this year was a quantum leap forward for the convention, no doubt helped by moving to a different hotel where people had room to move around.  Previous years it was so cramped and crowded it was just an annoyance if you had to walk around the convention because people were packed in like sardines trying to walk down the one little hallway.   I didn't have a lot of time to walk around the con itself, though I did get to see Phil (Wonder Woman, X-Men) Jimenez doing free sketches for people.  The man is a drawing MACHINE.  These weren't just quickie sketches either... these were headshots/busts of characters (with small backgrounds in some cases).  He would do very rough blue line pencils and then ink it with micron pens and they looked amazing.  I wanted to get a sketch m'self, but one of the drawbacks of having your own table is you have to actually man your own table.   Ah well.. maybe next time.

In any event, I had a lot of traffic to my table, especially on Saturday which shouldn't be a surprise as my lovely friend Erica showed up dressed as Angry Faerie.  Never underestimate the power of an attractive woman to get some attention.

So here are some of the photos from this year's con.  More to come soon:

Curse you Charlaine Harris!

My wife reads the Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris.  If you're unfamiliar with the books, you may be familiar with the tv show based on her books, HBO's TRUE BLOOD.

So we were at the grocery store the other day and saw the latest book was out, and naturally we had to buy it, right?  So standing in line, I'm holding the book and read the description on the dust jacket for these editions adventure:

[quote]After enduring torture and the loss of loved ones during the brief but deadly Faery War, Sookie Stackhouse is hurt and she's angry. Just about the only bright spot in her life is the love she thinks she feels for vampire Eric Northman. But he's under scrutiny by the new Vampire King because of their relationship. And as the political implications of the Shifters coming out are beginning to be felt, Sookie's connection to the Shreveport pack draws her into the debate. Worst of all, though the door to Faery has been closed, there are still some Fae on the human side-and one of them is angry at Sookie. Very, very angry...[/quote]

So... to be clear:  In the latest Sookie Stackhouse novel... there is an ANGRY FAERIE!

Touching Base

So I've been considering moving to a Mon/Weds/Friday schedule or even a Tues/Thurs/Saturday schedule, but have not decided on anything yet.  I posted about this on the comicfury forums, and got some good feedback.  Still, haven't made a firm decision yet, but once I do I'll obviously let everyone know.

In other news, it's looking more and more likely that I'll be having a table at ComicFest in Denver (April 16-18).  It's part of StarFest which is the "main convention".  If anyone is planning on attending, I hope you'll stop by my table and say hi. 

I've put a link at the top of the page that says "Contact Angry Faerie".  If you have any questions or comments regarind Angry Faerie, feel free to shoot me an email.  If you actually ask a question, it's possible that Angry Faerie will reply in a webcomic down the line.

Once again, thanks for reading. 

Sincerely

Scott S.

Weekend Back Matter 3

So far, as best I can tell, I am on track to have a table at the upcoming ComicFest here in Denver, Colorado.  ComicFest is a sub-convention of the larger StarFest.  I'll be sharing a table with another local webcomicker, so I'm hoping to have a good time (and possibly make a lil money, but we'll see about that).  The plan is to make up some Angry Faerie logo buttons (possibly to sell, possibly to just give away) and I may take the leap of faith and order a small batch of Angry Faerie t-shirts.  If I do take that leap (and it seems likely I will) I'll offer them for sale online as well.  So if you were just dying to get a black & white Angry Faerie t-shirt, this could be your opportunity!

By the way, did you notice at the top of the comic there is now a link to email Angry Faerie?  It's possible that the occasional email will get read by Angry Faerie in the comic.  Just fair warning, that's all.

I've gotten some flattering feedback from people saying they want more Angry Faerie (ie: bonus strips).  Well, I have to get a bit further ahead on the regular strips, but don't be too surprised if there are the occasional weekend strips (in color? possibly, but no guarantees at this point) as I did have an idea about that the other day.

As for today's back matter:  Everyone likes to see an Elf getting kicked "square in da nutz" , right?  (If your answer is "no" then you're clearly looking at the wrong webcomic).

Angry Faerie Back Matter #2

Just thought I'd share another image I did of Angry Faerie before the webcomic developed.  One thing about Angry Faerie, she doesn't like to be considered "cute".
