Movin' On Up...

Hey folks. This blog is relocating - please redirect your links and attention on over to jamietanner.tumblr.com, where (ideally) I will be posting about a zillion times more often than I have here...

Thanks!

Still More Kickstartery, Plus: New Shirt Design

Hey everybody!

My Kickstarter project's funding has ended ($7544! Humbling and awesome!). But, I continue to hear from wonderful people who would still like to pledge and get some rewards. So, if you count yourself among these fine folk, please visit my new Kickstarter Project Storefront / Pledge Area: http://www.jamietanner.com/kickstarter.html

I just posted a new update to the project, on the topic of inspirations, influences and preliminary ideas. Read it HERE. Like what you see? I hope you'll consider joining the project and getting cool stuff!

Speaking of cool stuff, one of my favorite podcasts, Jordan, Jesse, Go! (hilarious show, you should listen) recently held a T-shirt design contest and one of my designs was the winner! Sometime soon you'll be able to order this T-shirt from the MaxFun Store:


That's all for now. Want to hear more blather from me, more frequently? To my great surprise, I find myself really enjoying Twitter these days - please follow me if you are so inclined...

Continued Kickstartin', King Con, and Maximum Fun...

So much to update! Let's just dive right in, shall we?

First and foremost - KICKSTARTER:
My project to help fund my new graphic novel successfully reached its funding goal in a little over a week! I can't thank all my backers enough. BUT- the funding period is still going, and I've got lots more books and art to give to new backers. So if you're interested in seeing me make a new book, and want to get some original art or other cool stuff, I hope you'll take a moment to look at the project. I'd love to have you aboard, and every pledge helps! And if you want to be even more helpful, spread the word about the project any way you can - here's a nice short link you can copy and send to anyone you know who loves comics / graphic novels / art / etc: http://bit.ly/jtKS

Want to learn a little more about the project? Well, you can listen to an interview I did with Fanboy Radio right here. Also, the awesome people over at Kickstarter did a Q&A with me about my project, for which I drew a brand new short comics story! It's called The Squid. Here's the title panel:



If you like what you see, I suggest following along with my project updates - I plan to give away the original art for The Squid as bonus rewards! So stay tuned...

Speaking of squids, a while back I did a T-shirt design for The Sound of Young America (one of my favorite shows; you should listen!), and you can now buy one in the snazzy new MaxFun Store. My shirt is right here:



For all my fellow New Yorkers (or those near NY), this coming weekend (Nov. 7th & 8th), I'll be at Brooklyn's new comics festival, King Con. I'll be sharing a table with my friends GB Tran and Joanna Mulder, tremendously talented cartoonist / illustrators. Come by and say hello!

Talk to you soon...

A Little Renovation, Some Light Dusting...

Hey folks. Take a look around this ol' site - I've just finished a bit of an overhaul on it. The COMICS and ILLUSTRATION sections are much improved, with lots of new stuff to see / read. I'm preparing to launch a new project, so check back very soon for updates, or shoot me an email if you want me to add you to my mailing list - jamietanner@gmail.com. Until next time...

Zine Scene

Hey folks. This weekend I'll be at the NYC Zine Fest:



It's in Park Slope (my own neighborhood - I love an easy commute) at the Brooklyn Lyceum, and it's FREE! I'm sharing a table with my pal GB Tran, and I'll have copies of my book, some mini-comics, sketchbooks, prints, and whatever else I manage to make between now and Saturday. Stop by and say hello...
