just added-more schwag

So, I'm going to try some new stuff for ComicCon this year.
Every time I bring original art with me, no one wants it, they ask for Prints or Cards or something they can carry around without squashing...if I bring Prints, then everyone asks for Original art....But, if I don't bring it- everyone wants it, until I bring it.
I've decided to have some embroidered patches made. These are some of the designs I'm working with.


This way they can be sewn onto any tshirt, hat,jacket, totebag, jeans butt pocket, backpack or whatever.
I thought these were good, highlighting some of my characters, but also generally appealing to kids, les gothiques, monster and halloween lovers and those who love all things kawaii. And, most importantly, they are something that I'd decorate my ghoul scout sash with, to be sure.
Plus, technically- they are limited edition patches. So- kinda collectors items
If there are any characters you'd like to see in the future-I am open to requests.

Why, the solution is simple: just bring everything! The patches look like a good alternative, though.

Jill -

Sarah says we want these. Please contact us during the course of regular transmissions. That is all.

Yes, we attempt to bolster interest and simultaneously elbow aside the competition. See how clever we are. Sort of.

Trixie heads, btw.

Please, please PLEASE say that you'll have these available in ways besides going to SDCC... I NEED a Scratches patch in my life!

Jill Thompson said...

I shall have Scratches Patches available as soon as I can. I'm just trying to schwag myself some easy to deal with fun stuff to pay for my table and my room etc.
Trixie Heads? No body?
And There will be a Scary Godmother one as soon as I can figure out a good pose.

These are off the hook. If you want, send everything to my place and then I could bring them to you preview night.

Ah... Patches that is so awesome!! Buttons are popular swag too. Can I suggest Pettibone? I love him something awful... The orange and black valentine postcard you did was rad and would look good as a patch! <3

I've beent trying to get a Scary Godmother original lineart page! I'm shocked nobody wants your originals ant the Cons.
I've frequently tried to contact the guys at jillthompsonart.com trying to buy a page but never get a response. Is there any other way to buy a page of your artwork?
thank you,
Juan Manuel

Juan,
Sorry you have not gotten a response from comicbookpros.com. I don't know what to do about that. Which page are you interested in?

Juan Manuel said...

Thank you for answering, Jill, I'm a big fan!
I'm interested in one page from the "lineart" section of the "art for sale" page at jillthompsonart.com. It's the first page there, with Hannah Marie doing her homework on the first panels, and a group shot with the words The right Side on the lower 2/3 of the page.
If it's not available, I'd be interested in the second page there, the title page from the Serech for Mr Boggeylegs story, or, as a third choice, the 19th page on the site, the one with "Mr Boogeylegs takes flight" on the first panel and a group party shot on the third tier.
I live in Montreal, QC. Also, within reason, I understand there could be price hikes since the website seems not to have been updated in a while.
I can be contacted at tacaal@gmail.com.
Thank you once again!
Thank you!
