Conflict resolved… Midge is resolved to work in the petri dish that is the new and improved and kid-friendly Backstreet Comics. We also see , from last week and this week’s toons, that Midge is a bit of a kid-a-phobe and a germ-a-phobe as well. I planted this a while back (in the Squid Row archive), when Midge explains to an inattentive mother… Well, here:
If you read both Randie & Ryan and Squid Row… I apologize for the dual-post.
More and more webcomic-ers and indie artists are turning to Patreon for to give their readers and want-to-support-ers a way to, well, support them.
I want to once again ask for your Patreon-ic support via Patreon. It’s simple. They make it easy. They take care of the details. You can choose to give anywhere from a buck a month to $25 a month (or more). There are perks, of course. Would you like to get an art-postcard from me every month? or perhaps an artist trading card ?(examples in progress pictured) Or even an Art-o-rama zine (when it drops)? How about a behind the scenes news feed? All these things are perks and are available to you starting at $2/mo.
I don’t like asking for money. I was horrible at the door-to-door thing as a kid. Cookies, walk-a-thon pledges, school fund drives… I hated them. But comic convention tables aren’t cheap… and I want to continue to provide comics online. So won’t you drop something in the ol’ coffee cup? I would appreciate it greatly!
AND, to Sweeten the Pot, I will do you up a one-time Artist Trading Card for signing up at the $2/month level… that’s just $24 dollars for the year… plus you get an ATC… and I will send it to you! If you choose to give at a higher level, I will still send ya the ATC and I’ll draw whatever you want on the card! Jump to my page on Patreon!
So thank you for reading all the way to the end… and thank you for your readership and smiles upon you all!
Happy Bastille Day!
As a bonus, I am posting a few hardly seen Squids from BACK IN THE DAY… I numbered these toons (my system when I started the comic… and these are #200 and #201. I do believe this is the first time Randie talks about her dream of going to France. Enjoy.
If you live around here (Monterey-Salinas and the surrounding areas)… I will be giving a sketchbooking workshop at The Monterey Museum of Art (Peninsula Art Museum in Squid Row) in July & August… If you would like to attend, there is more information to be found at the link below.
Hi ho, Squiddies…
So I got a request this morning by Squiddie Rich, to put in links on the websites for easier travel ability. This mades sense and I don’t know why I hadn’t done this before. So you will notice on both Randie and Ryan and here on Squid Row, there are links to the other (in the left sidebar). They will open a new tab so you can flip back and forth.
Thanks, Rich, for the suggestion.
This is where I was part of last week. This was the view out the window of our hotel in Crested Butte, Colorado. Elevation was at about 9,000-ish feet (thus the name). I tell ya, the views were stunning in every direction, the air was clear and I am in love with the aspens and pine. Beautiful place in the spring and summer… I don’t ski… and I imagine this place is a zoo in the winter.
