So remember when I told you guys the other week that there were going to be some changes around here? Well, here’s the first of them!

Shark Robot will soon be taking over all of my online storefront. What does this mean, you ask? It means several very important things. First it means that I won’t be in charge of shipping out merchandise anymore, freeing up a fairly sizable portion of my time to work on the comic! Huzzah! Secondly it means that I’m going to restructure how I do prints. Thirdly, it means that we’ll have T-shirts again! And new designs to boot!

One of the things I’m going to do during this change-over is I’m going to discontinue a lot of prints. Yes, you heard me, a lot of prints (mostly the limited edition ones) will no longer be available as I will not be printing them anymore. I’ll be keeping a number of existing prints (obviously) and there will be a bunch of new prints coming up. All the artwork will be available in new sizes: 8×10″, 10×13″, and 16×20″, which are all standard sizes, making framing super easy!

As of this month I’m making a slight change to the way the limited edition wallpapers work. As always, any donor who donates more than $15 will get one of the signed and numbered limited edition prints. However, now they will not be limited to runs of 100. The Limited Edition prints will be done in runs only large enough to cover the donors for the month. So once a new wallpaper goes up that 8.5×11″ limited edition print will never be available again. Based on past experience, this will make them limited to runs of roughly 15-30 copies. There is the potential for any wallpaper to later be turned into a regular print and available in the sizes mentioned above, but there is no guarantee that will happen. So come March, when I put out a new wallpaper, the current wallpaper will not be available in print again. You can always donate to get previous wallpapers at any time, but the limited prints will not be available once a new wallpaper goes up.

So when is this change over happening? The END OF THE MONTH. Come March 1st, all links to the storefront will be turned to point to Shark Robot. I won’t dismantle the GCG Studios storefront until the end of March, however. I figure a little bit of overlap is a good thing, but you’ll have to find your way there yourself.

Ultimately I feel this will lead to a better shopping experience for you, more time to do art for me, and in the end will streamline the whole business part of this thing I do. Yeah I know some of you guys are all “boo! you shouldn’t be in it for the money!” to which I say “I like being able to pay rent.” I don’t like the business part, I like the art part. If someone else would put a roof over my head and slide food under my door I would happily draw all day and night long without any thought to anything but the comic. As for the rest of you, thank you guys for all your support. I couldn’t be doing this without you guys. I feel this partnership with Shark Robot will be a good thing for all of us.

Stay tuned for new comic pages and a return of wearable art! Oh, and issue 3 is now available for preorder!

    Glad you’re reorganizing if it gives you more time for the art part. I miss reading new comics twice a week. No shame in delegating control. Likin’ the new chapter so far.

    Hey Garth,

    I see you don’t have ACen on your schedule still. I was planning on shooting them (another?) e-mail today about it and was wondering a few things:

    a) Would you like/are able to attend? If not, then I won’t bother, but I know of at least a few people who would like to meet you and buy art from you.

    b) Anything specific you would like me to state in the e-mail?

    c) Any other suggestions?


  3. Garth says:

    @Cat: I am able to go, and I very much want to go to ACen. I’m still trying to work in as a guest, however I don’t know how likely that is at this point, even after finally getting in touch with the right people.

    The best advice I can give is to stress in your email how much and how many attendees would like to see me attend. I do a lot more than just show up and be famous =p I run panels and do all sorts of things for the enjoyment of attendees.

    A friend has extended an offer for me to share a booth with him, so I may well be at ACen, guest or no guest this year after all. Nothing confirmed, yet, but things look hopeful.

  4. Alix says:

    Does this mean we will no longer be able to look through your portfolio as that shopfront page will no longer exist? Or will the shop section be taken out and we can see the rest still, because I love looking through your previous works… Also I am a super poor student. I have half the stuff in your current shopfront that I want. But my current situation, plus exchange rate makes it almost impossible for me to consider at the moment. I’m sort of sad to be missing out…

  5. Spooky says:

    On the ACen conversation: I sure hope you can make it! I’ll be in their alley as well and I’d love pick up issue 3 from you. It took me forever to get my table and panel confirmed with them. You can always message the ConChair, she’s a lovely person and I’m sure she’d be happy to try to help!

    On the Post: Yay for wearable art! :D

  6. Garth says:

    @Alix Not at all. The art gallery at GCG Studios will not be going down at all. Honestly, it needs some updating, so there will be new stuff there too!

    @Spooky: Yeah, turns out I know a lot of people involved with ACen and they’re good people. I’m really not sure why I’ve had so much trouble with them over the years.
