The more things change ... !
We'll be at NYCC this weekend, at the Benign Kingdom booth at 166 in the Exhibitor Hall! Here's a handy map:
All the way on the righthand side, towards the back! We're across from the Mondo booth. We'll have JW books and other merch, as well as all of the Benign Kingdom books! Come say hey and check us out! See you there!
Hey guys! We've started in on the work for Volume 3, which we've titled "The Ballad of Laundry Cat". We're going to do something new this time and go through the work we do to put a book together step by step, with new updates on the process on Thursdays. Hope you enjoy it!
Yuko's parents have been renovating their upstairs! It looks amazing. If my calculations are correct, besides the upstairs den there's one new renovated room per cat. This is how I make all the calculations in my life these days ... or should I say ... catculations ...
Check out this cool mug! We've been sitting on this design for years and the fine folks at Topatoco finally helped us make it a reality! Hurray!
More dress adventures.
I'm super sick so I am gonna leak something we normally keep as a book exclusive. We're beginning to get our files together for V3 and one of the things we like to do is use the author bio pages to have some fun - in the first volume we're X-Men and the the second we're D&D monsters. We don't normally share this stuff outside of the book, but I can't help myself - Yuko did a pretty rad shojo bio drawing of me and here's a crop of it:
Hey guys! Here's a comic about drink preferences. I think a Dark & Calm is a Dark & Stormy without the alcohol? Cute. You can seem them in color on Yuko's Tumblr.
It's Evan's birthday today! Happy birthday man! You are talented as heck! Hooray! Birthdays for all.
That's all for us! See you next week!
Hey guys! Today's post is of some of the con sketches Yuko did this past weekend. Yuko tries to draw something nice for everyone who buys or brings us a hardcover Benign Kingdom book.
We're pretty wiped and are slowly getting back into the swing of things. No process post this week, but those will be back next week. And hopefully we'll have something cool to show you guys on Thursday! See you then!
This is sort of a process post, sort of a way to show you guys some work we did a little while back.
SPX is this weekend! We'll have books and prints, come by and say hello! We're at table F14, near a bunch of other cool cats at the lefthand side front of the hall:
See you there!
We're going to be at SPX this weekend! Yuko did up this neato gif to show you where we're at:
We're right up front at F-14, through the doors on the left-hand side of the room! Come say hey! We'll have books, prints & more!
That's all for us! See you at SPX!
In the continuing process series for this month, here's an outline of the dev process that we went through when we designed the CMYcat shirt/tote. Hope you like it! The previous covered the process for our business card.
