HAPPY BASS-DAY TO ME
Dec. 5, 2011, The Fillmore, San Francisco:
My Store has been updated to include all of my new products! Many things are on sale. Lots of my apparel items are deeply discounted, but most are very limited in quantity (and in some cases, style/size). I'll be traveling further for shows next year, and in an effort to travel light I'm paring down the products I'll be offering. So, assist me in a cleansing of the palate, won't you?
If you spend all of your time on Facebook, you can now stay wrapped in its comforting arms and still shop Monstark! I've added a Store link to the Monstark Studios Fan Page.
INTERVIEW AND FINAL 2011 SHOWS
AUDIO: I was interviewed on Art of the Red River for their Halloween show! If you'd like to hear (more of) Mark ramblin', stammerin' and generally juiced on coffee, check it out! Hosts Carolyn Watson Dubisch, Mike Dubisch and Wade Zahares, talented artists themselves, provide here some intelligent and thoughtful discussion of my work.
My final shows of the year, APE and the Rivals' Rock and Roll Halloween Show, were so much fun and allowed me to chat with tons of great people and fellow creators. VISIT my Facebook page! SEE the photos and how it all went down! EXPERIENCE my fancily monstrous (monstrously fancy?) Halloween personification of the Monstark!
Thanks to everyone who made it out to my shows this year. What a great time I had.
NEW PRODUCTS FOR THAT APE
I'll be at APE next weekend! I'm located at table #303, right up the center, near the front. I'm near lots of other amazing talent (Dave Correia, Emonic, Cody Vrosh and Jonathan Wayshak to name but a few) so this will be one marvelous little spot.
I've been busy. Here is a rundown of the new stuff I'll have at this show:
My new mini-comic,
18" x 24" posters of Monster-Boy in his lair.
Two new 8.5" x 11" prints: Finance Monster and Antler
Greeting/note cards, two sets of three: Food Freaks and
New buttons: Hamburger Head.
I've got two shirts in the works, one brand new and one remix (hint: glow in the dark). They are still in production, but I plan to make an update closer to the show, with photos.
One more thing - for APE pickup, the cutoff date to order a Knotted Familiars book with custom sketch is 11:59 PM Tuesday night, (Sept 27). Any orders I receive after that will be shipped (for a couple of bucks extra) after the show.
I look forward to seeing those of you who can make it!
My new mini-comic,
Cabravore, has been added to the
Store! I whipped this together in the span of a
week or two's worth of evenings. It was a good romp to create and a good
warm-up to the other comic I'm working on.
I've been working on masks and some things of the comics variety which I'll be unveiling at future shows. I'm very excited about the events coming up!
For the remainder of this year, I've got some great shows, including SF Zine Fest and APE. See the sidebar list to the right for details. Next year will see my first furry convention, as well as the first Monstark Studios appearance in Seattle.
I've got a bunch of crazy art now over at my sketchblog, make sure to check it out!
I've sort of by accident started a
I'll be posting sketches and drawings there on a more or less
semi-regular basis. It's getting freaky over there!
I have added Knotted
Familiars, the new mini prints book (custom sketch on cover
included), to the store! check it out!
SHOWS 'N' STUFF
It's a busy year and getting busier still for your
friendly neighborhood monster-boy. I have ever more shows lined up this
year, along with some new products and a lot more stuff in the works.
I'll give you a quick rundown:
