My Etsy and Big Cartel shops
10:41 am edt
I've got a bunch of housecleaning
and re-arranging scheduled for this summer. I will be closing this website's Store first, and then deciding between my Etsy store and the DWITT Market on which to keep so there is only ONE online outlet to buy work directly from me. There is of course another online
source for a LOT of my print and poster work, and that is Nevermind Gallery. They have been, and continue to be, a big supporter of me and my work, so please shop there often!
I've also been breathing new life, and new regular work, into my DWITT Dailys comic blog. I invite you to check it out.
Happy Summer Solstice everyone!

One week left to get my book funded

Time is running out on getting my book funded on Kickstarter.
7 short days remain to reach my funding goal. Once we hit the $4,500 mark, the book WILL be made. If we can get
the $5,500 mark, I will expand the book to 104 pages. If we can get beyond that, I'll come up with some other method of making
the book even better. Any level of funding will help, and I also need your help spreading the word about my book. Twitter,
Facebook, share it with everyone. Thank you in advance, now, lets make a book!
