It’s been a tremendously busy summer and fall for travel and convention and life but with only Rhode Island Comic Con left on the calendar I’m enjoying getting back to routine. Routines like seeing my family, sleeping in my own bed, and pausing several times a day to cuddle various cats while Sohmer emails me to get back to work and stop sending him cat updates. A favorite part of my routine is my Friday night Twitch stream.
Since we’re so close to Hallowe’en I’m declaring tonight’s stream a special SpectacuLAR. What does that mean? Well essentially it means I’m gonna give away stuff every hour. Like art, because really that’s all I have to give away. While I’m always open to talking shop SpectacuLARs are also a time when I like to devote extra time to sharing any worthwhile knowledge I can. So if you’ve got art questions pop into the chat or email me before tonight’s stream (lar at blindferret etc) and I’ll try to answer/demo them during the stream. This can range from “how do I draw hands?” to “how can I do x in ClipStudio?” to “what’s gouache anyhow?”
We may even play the internet’s fastest trending game “The Rapid Fire Sketch Game” at the end of the night. Or maybe a new game of drunken drawing? You’ll just have to tune in to find out.
So if you’re not out doing the Time Warp at a midnight show, or enjoying the company of like minded seasonal ghouls please drop by and say ‘Hello’. I stream from 8pm ET till midnight. twitch.tv/uncalar
See you in the funnies!
It looks like I’m a couple hours away from boarding a plane to take me to Jersey, to then board another plane that’ll take me much further, this time to Germany.
Indeed, my friends, Lar, Will, Costello and I are headed to Germany for Essen Spiel, where we’ll be exhibiting at Europe’s Gencon this weekend.
All the information of where we can be found, Booth 4-A110:
As we haven’t been to Europe in a couple of years, and as I’ve never been to Germany before, I’m incredibly excited and hope to indulge in all the things Germany is famous for. Well, most of the things.

In a couple of hours, I’m heading to the airport to grab what I assume to be some type of airborne dogsled contraception; as I head way West and way North to the city of Edmonton.
Lar, Moss, Will and I will be at the Edmonton Comic Expo this weekend at booth #1016.
If that’s not enough, Lar and I will also be doing a panel on Friday, where we discuss our collective 800 years of experience in this business.
We hope to see as many of you out there as possible!
And a question to Edmonton residents; do I tip each dog individually, or just to the lead dog and let him split it up?
