Todayâ€™s blog is part production blog, and part â€œWhatâ€™s going on with Scott and Benitaâ€ blog.
Item: We sold out of our first print run of â€œJohnny Saturn: Synns of the Father,â€ and we just got a new shipment of books in.Â To celebrate this, we are going to include a free sketch card with each purchase of the book within the next thirty days.Â The card will include an original piece of art by me, done in whatever medium catches my attention, and whatever Spire City character Iâ€™ve got an itch to draw.Â Itâ€™ll be random, and one-of-a-kind!
Item: â€œJohnny Saturnâ€ has just joined the Web Comic Planet Collective, or WCPC!Â This is not a traditional collective, or exclusive from our memberships in the fabulous Palace In the Sky (I love this group!) or Graphic Smash.Â Instead, WCPC is more of an alliance of webcartoonists joined in the common goal of promoting our comics, a think-tank of outside-the-box thinking to take our comics to the next level!Â This group was founded by personal friend and webcomic activist Phil Hofer, aka Frumph.
Item: Iâ€™m putting together a formal Stumbleupon group, a pooling of webcartoonists who will Stumble each othersâ€™ work on update days.Â If we can gather a good number of these online cartoonists, then our Stumbleupon influence will greatly increase and all members will benefit.Â If you are a webcartoonist and possibly interested in joining such an effort, please email me for details.Â If you are comic reader, please be invited to Stumble all the new episodes and blogs as they come up on Johnny Saturn, using the Stumbleupon icon that comes with each new post.
Item: Iâ€™m happy to announce the arrival of the Graphimancer, my new website devoted to my illustration and fantasy artwork.Â If you are interested in hiring me as a colorist or inker, please contact me.Â Iâ€™m also available for cover work, and digital painting.
