Sorry for how late this comic is today, I know I just barely managed to update on a Wednesday.
It’s been a whirlwind of a week to be perfectly honest. I realized late Monday that Alamo City Comic Con is next week, but for some reason I thought I had another week. So I kicked my ass into gear, ordered my print restocks, sent off a new print I’ll be debuting next weekend and have an order of promo flyers from the fine folks at Mindzai studios. I’m nervous but excited for this show as it’s the biggest show I’ll have been a part of so far, and it’s the real test to see if I can make this career path sustainable. It is my goal to sell ALL of my prints. After Alamo City I have a three day turn-around before Wizard World Austin, in which time I’ll have to restock what I (hopefully) sell, and I have two shifts in my screen printing internship (which is going very well).
Not only am I getting prepared for back to back shows but I’ve also realized that September is a double anniversary for me. Three years ago, we moved out to Austin, TX and began to change our lives for the better. One year ago this month I restarted Fortress of Holding the web-comic and in that time I’ve only missed two issues. Granted, they’re not all great issues, but I’ve only missed two in the past year. I’m very proud of the work I’ve been doing as Xaq-Industries and I want to thank all of you for your help, love, and support!
See you at Alamo City!
