Regarding sketches etc:

Sketches: I plan on doing free quick mouse doodles in any Mouse Guard hardcover (either purchased at the show or brought from home.).

I value the time at shows to talk to fans, answer questions, sign books, take photos etc. I’ll prioritize interacting with fans before anything,

This should answer any SDCC Q’s…but feel free to post other Q’s as comments and I’ll try to answer them ASAP.

Hope SDCC goes brilliantly for you David. Wish I could go, but otherwise preoccupied. Maybe 2010!

Brandon said...

Hope you have an awesome time at SDCC! One of these years I'm really going to have to come. All these amazing comic creators such as yourself, not to mention all the film and TV stuff.

You have to be taking part in this!

We have a panel together, so I know I'll see you at Comic-Con. Looking forward to it.

Anonymous: Nope. I wasn't asked to. However my pal Katie Cook is! She did the fuzzy Wampa.

Stan: I'm really looking forward to seeing you and to the panel!

David, are you bringing those cool Mouse Guard posters to SDCC (the ones I see on ebay with like 100 mice on them)? If so, what do they cost? Hope you have a great con!

Mayhem said...

Posters are $10 each. There's the multi mouse poster, and David might have the RPG promo poster available too. And I agree, the "scalping" on eBay is terrible for them, which is why I bought mine direct from David.

Thanks for the info. and yes the scalpers do rot on ebay as they are the ones to benefit and not the artists.

Completely unrelated, but just had a thought . . . A Mouse Guard iGoogle theme would be awesome. Please, please :)

btw, love the Fall Hardcover and the RPG. Looking forward to "Winter".

Dear Julia Petersen,

I know that David gets all the credit for Mouse Guard but I hope the fans realize how hard working you are and how much you help David!! I just want to say Thank You for everything!!!


mschmidt said...

Will you be accepting commissions at WW Chicago as well, David? Same rules as SDCC, hopefully?

Jackson Sze said...

Hi David,

It was really nice meeting you at the con. Please keep in touch.

And sorry about the mouse city painting.. didn't mean to mislead you!


Mayhem said...

@mschmidt - David got so super crazy busy at San Diego from all the attention at the booth and doing the panels etc, that he didn't have time to do any of the taken commissions! I guess you'll have to wait and see if he will take any at Chicago as a result...

DPetersen said...

I do plan to take comissions at Chicago..though the rules might change a bit....stay tuned
