SDCC 2016 Info

With San Diego Comic Con starting tomorrow with Preview Night, I wanted to do a post about all the info you'll need for me at SDCC this weekend.

-Location: Artist Alley GG-09

-Commissions: Toned Paper Drawings for $200 (see details below)

-Panel: World of Mouse Guard Friday 5:00 Room 32AB

Location: I'll be spending most of my time at my Artist Alley Table GG-09 (this is the same location I've been sitting for several years now). I'll be signing anything you bring me that I've worked on (no signature fee...ever) I'll have Mouse Guard books, prints, tees, and bookplates. But also feel free to stop by and chat or ask a question or two. The live face to face time at a convention is the part of cons that makes them special.

If I'm not at my table when you arrive, please be patient, I may be taking a bathroom break, getting a snack, or visiting with a few creators I only get a chance to see at conventions. Someone should always be attending to my table to give you info or sell you products.

This year I'll have the Mouse Guard books (Fall, Winter, Black Axe, Legends of the Guard Volumes 1-3, Baldwin the Brave and the Art Of book) Books can also be purchased from BOOM! (my publisher) and then brought to my table for signing. I'll also have prints, bookplates, and tee-shirts...however...

No New Sketchbook...yet:
I had made it a tradition to release a Mouse Guard Sketchbook at SDCC every year, but this year between health issues with our dog, my Mom, and my duties on Wind in the Willows, I won't have enough material for a sketchbook until later this year (Baltimore or New York). Until then you can always get the Mouse Guard Digital Sketchbook collection that has all the sketchbooks from 2004-2015 in one .PDF: http://mouseguard.bigcartel.com/product/mouse-guard-digital-sketchbook-collection-2004-2015

Toned Paper Drawing Commissions:
I'll be open for first-come/first-served (new list every day) toned paper commissions for $200. These are single figure busts and while I'm known for doing Guardmice, we can chat about other subjects or characters that are in my wheel-house (I want us both to be happy with the final result). You can see more examples of these here: http://davidpetersen.blogspot.com/2016/06/toned-paper-con-drawings.html

Happy to be able to give a presentation about Mouse Guard to old and new fans again this year. Here's the full panel description:

The World of Mouse Guard 5:00-6:00 The World of Mouse Guard—David Petersen’s fan-favorite Mouse Guard series has been around for more than a decade, and publisher Archaia, an imprint of BOOM! Studios, is proud to be a part of its legacy! But what’s next? Join Petersen and BOOM! Assistant Editor Cameron Chittock in a behind-the-scenes look at the award-winning comics and games, including the recently released Mouse Guard: Art of Bricks, a peek at the forthcoming Mouse Guard Coloring Book, and more! Plus, comedian Hal Lublin (The Thrilling Adventure Hour) will be on hand for a live reading performance of a Mouse Guard short story! Room: 32AB

Let me first say congrats on the film licence announcement! Hopefully it's in good hands and remains faithful to the source material. I met Gary Whitta a long time ago, when he was still doing videogame journalism here in the UK, and was always impressed with his work. Pity I can't be there this year to meet you and Julia, and be in the panel to hear more about the film.

Just found out about you and your work David, it's inconceivable it didn't happen earlier! Being a NIMH kid of yore and eagerly awaiting Ghost of a Tale. Will be diving straight into this incredibly kindred premise and world :) Thank you for creating it, and best of luck with the film and with further creations :D sincerely, TweedyGamer

Hello David. Just curious, when you sell your books at cons, do you keep more of the profits than when your books are purchased from stores or online such as Amazon?

Any way you buy my book helps me in some way. The routes that may bring me less direct profit, instill confidence in store owners to keep stock of my available and upcoming books (some store owners base their order info on Amazon sales numbers).
