MECAF This Sunday: Our Last Show For The Foreseeable Future

May 14, 2014

This Sunday (May 18, 2014), Dandelion Studios will be appearing at our last show, at least for the foreseeable future.

As mentioned here before, I’ve taken a teaching job in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, and we’re excitedly looking forward to new adventures on the other side of the planet.

We’re going to be moving all of our Dandelion Studios comics publishing activities online, and we are expecting to be off the convention circuit for at least two years. Of course, anything is possible, so you may see us show up at an anime con somewhere in Asia, or at a show back in the USA if we end up coming home for our summers.

But we are treating this coming weekend as our farewell show. The event is MECAF, the Maine Comics Arts Festival in Portland ME, and it’s consistently been one of our favorite shows.

It features exclusively small press/independent talent, and adult admission is a mere $5. If you are anywhere near Portland this weekend, and you are at all geekily-inclined, this is the best deal for your money, barring none.

Guests of honor are Kazu Kibuishi of Amulet, Vol. 1: The Stonekeeper, Zach Giallongo of Ewoks: Shadow Over Endor, and the creator of one of my favorite recent comic series, Jimmy Gownley of Amelia Rules! Volume 1: The Whole World’s Crazy.

So, come to Portland this Sunday and stop by the Dandelion Studios table to check out all of our comic titles, plus a full selection of plushie giant spiders and (not technically giant) narwhals.

Hope to see you there!

Guest Art: ‘Lectric Lass by Sin D’Angelo

March 23, 2014

We just got back from our best convention ever sales-wise, Anime Boston 2014. In addition to it being a great weekend for comic and plushie sales, we had lots of fun, and a big part of the reason was our neighbors in artists alley.

Artist Aaron Wood was a last-minute addition to our table. You can check out his awesome poster artwork at etsy.com/shop/Justonescarf.

And next to our table was Sin D’Angelo of Plastic Love Studios. Here is Sin’s rendition of ‘Lectric Lass from Zephyr & Reginald: Minions for Hire.

Snowed In

February 16, 2014

Apologies to our fans at Queen City Kamikaze.

We woke up at 5 AM, took a look at the foot of snow that had been dumped on Cape Cod (and our driveway), and the fact that the roads were not fully plowed, and went back to bed.

QCK is a great con, and I hope everyone had an awesome time.

We are now looking ahead to Anime Boston and we look forward to seeing you there!

Queen City Kamikaze (Tentative Due To Weather)

February 15, 2014

We’re scheduled to be at Queen City Kamikaze tomorrow, 2/16/14, in Manchester NH. QCK is always a fun show and we’ve been looking forward to it.

We’re also under a blizzard warning here on Cape Cod, with 8-12 inches of snow expected this afternoon and tonight.

So whether we actually head north is going to depend on road conditions here when we wake up.

Forecast is for sunny weather in Manchester on Sunday, so hopefully the con will be well-attended. We’ll update via Twitter (@dandelionstudio) when we know definitely whether we’ll be making the trip up.
