I managed to sneak out to Hot Art Wet City’s CARDED! show for a little bit on Saturday night. It was quite hopping. It was so crowded that I actually had to wait a few minutes to get in as the space had reached capacity. But I made it in, got a stack of trading cards with my drawing on ‘em and started trading away.
Here’s a look at my haul. I was mostly interested in getting more of my cards into the crowd but I did manage to score some nice trades. I put my favourites on top of the pile — by M W Bowen, Exploding Haggis, Frazer Adams and Brandon Cotter.
I never did see the one card I was looking for: a raccoon fellow by Tony Cliff. Well, I saw it displayed on the wall but not in the hands of anyone willing to give it up. There were some other swell cards I missed out on by Dacosta! and Suite Charlie. Congratulations to anyone who walked home with one of those.
Hey, I’ve got an extra of my card that I want to give away. If you want a chance to get your mitts on it, you just have to sign up to my email newsletter. On Monday afternoon I’ll randomly pick one one of my subscribers and mail them the card, along with a few other goodies. To subscribe, just fill out the form at the bottom of any page on my website.
Regarding the email newsletter: I recently ditched my old mailing list and have started a new one from scratch. It’s a good way to get updates on my new releases, appearances and other exciting news I have to share. Don’t worry, it won’t clog your inbox. You can expect between a half dozen to a dozen updates a year.
