Twisted Rabbit Sculpture Available at our Booth
Monday, I contacted Sideshow
to make sure we would have some of the Demon
Dog Rabbit Sculptures available at the Comic-Con.
I got a bit scared last week when I received an
email saying that they were all sold out. I'm
glad to report that Sideshow has indeed put aside
a small quantity (100) for us to sell at our booth.
They also sent me a picture of the packaging,
so I could preview it here. Pretty cool, isn't
to the San Diego Comic Con, orders placed between July
9 and July 31 won't be shipped until we resume shipping
duties on August 1st. Some of our items are getting
low in quantity and might be selling out in San Diego.
We marked those as "Out
for the time being. Upon our return from Comic-Con,
we will re-assess our inventory. Thank you for your
understanding and continued support!

Miller. Bob asked if he could commission me
to do the cover of the upcoming issue of APATOONS.

contain all kinds of cool stuff from the animation world.
To give you an idea of what Apatoons is about, I copied
this little bit of info from their
Apatoons is an Amateur Press Association about animated
cartoons. If you're not familiar with APAs (which have
been around for more than a hundred years), think of

of our members (who are limited to 25 in number) produces
a self-published, self-written fanzine/newsletter for
our bimonthly mailings, with reviews, news, history,
artwork, humor, and anything else that's at least sort

have also received such goodies as cels, vintage animation
collectibles, and more.

Leader, who collates them, adds a section of news clippings,
and staples the whole thing into a publication that's
typically from 100-250 pages in length. Every member
gets a copy; the only costs of membership go to pay
for postage, envelopes, and the like.
