Southside Comic Fest, Updates and More

I’ve been lying low online lately as a sort of mini break. I’m mainly writing my next comic, learning to write any comics and figuring out a few of my concerns with my art and my business in making art.

I went to Southside Comic Book Show last Saturday. It was tiny and slow for me and there were mostly toy sellers and seven artists including me: Juan Gomez, Darryl Young, Johnathan Grimm, Donald Mcquay and Edward Sims of Kensai Productions, and Bryant Bell. I sold three comics, but not much else. I mainly sat around and drew Jojo Characters all that day.

This is a reminder that I’ll be at Indiana Comic Convention on Friday, August 30th to Sunday, September 1st! I’ll be sharing a table with Chris Scott!

There, I’ll be debuting some new stickers courtesy of Sticker Robot! One is a 2×2 inch Round Sticker and the other is a 3×2 Die Cut Sticker of my popular Hipster Medusa!

Later after that, I’ll be at the Southside Comic Book Show in Apollo Recreation Center in Alsip, Illinois on September 14, 2019! Come and meet me!

I’ll be at Indiana Comic Convention on August 30th to September 1st! I’m reworking some new things with the stuff I sell like cool stickers!

Stickers and Statuses

I ordered a small sample of stickers from Sticker Mule. They’re pretty nice and I want to order a larger pack from them again.

My coloring stuff has slowed down due to commissions and things that I need to do at hand. It’s still in the back burner and I’m gotten too far into it to stop it, but I need to make priorities.

Other good news, is that I was interviewed by the Lockport Legend when I was at Comicopolis two weeks ago! They might be going out of style but it’s still cool to be published in a newspaper!

I think I might get back to my coloring stuff soon but I’ll let you know later!

My Time at Comicopolis 2019

I went to Comicopolis 2019 last weekend and I had a real good time! It’s been a while between cons sk I’m happyto get back in that groove and tell people about my stuff!

I was surprisingly busy chatting with the attendees and my table neighbors, Mandy Madrox and Jamie Patrick about making art and stuff!

I managed to get some pictures of some cool cosplay of characters rare and well-known! I dig smaller cons since you can see some talented locals eaiser than goimg to a crowded event like C2E2.

I also knocked out some commissions! I got a behind them due to getting busy selling stuff, but I managed. Despite only being two commissions, these are the most commissions I’ve done for anyone so far and I wanted to do my best with them. If you want a commission too, you’re free to message me!

If you missed me or missed out on buying comics from me, you can still go to my Etsy Store and buy physical or digital copies of Shirley’s Day, Incident at the Game Store or my 2019 Printed Sketchbook!

The next convention I’ll be attending is Indiana Comic Con with Chris Scott at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis on August 30the to September 1st!

Ryan Francis Sketchbook 2019

My first print sketchbook is up for sale on my Etsy store for $1 plus shipping!

It’s a 12-page black and white compilation of sketch artwork by me over the 2018 and 2019 years. Print books courtesy of Ka-Blam Printing!

This book contains a sample of character sketches, ink illustrations, and commentary by the artist. It’s a good low price item to support me in my efforts to make good art!

If you want it personally signed by me, I’ll be debuting my print sketchbook at Comicopolis in the White Oak Public Library in Lockport, IL this coming Saturday, July 27!

I’ll also be selling Shirley’s Day and Incident at the Game Store as well as commissions!

There isn’t much new that I can really talk about at the moment.
