On Saturday Oct. 30th and Sunday the 31st, I'll have a table at Detroit Fanfare, a brand new comic con being held in Dearborn, Michigan. It's gonna be balls out awesome, with great comic creators like Tim Seeley (Hack/Slash), Guy Davis (The Marquis, B.P.R.D.), and the guest of honor, Stan "The Man" Lee. Now little ol' me, I'll have all sorts of great Halloween treats at my table for you guys. Prints, commissions, original art and sketch card returns for sale, and this brand new baby, fresh off the printer...
 My very first sketchbook! It's 32 pages, and will sell for $10.00 at the con. I'm including a personalized caricature on the cover of whoever purchases the book. You'll be this adorable little bunny's hostage! How sweetly criminal is THAT?!

And for those of you who still haven't gotten your copies of Dead Duck, I'll be giving you another chance, along with a rare opportunity. Not only will you get a copy from my very limited, personal stash of Dead Duck books, but I'll draw an original Dead Duck sketch on the inside cover. And of course that includes the potential for a Zombie Chick sketch. Like you need to ask. So show up and get 'em while they're there to be got!

Lastly, I'll have the honor of participating in a panel discussion on Saturday at 2pm with two of my fellow National Cartoonist Society brothers, Dave Coverly (creator of the syndicated comic "Speed Bump") and Jef Mallett (creator of the syndicated comic "Frazz"). Us three are Michigan born and bred cartoonists, which is the focus of our panel. So that should be reason enough to come to Detroit Fanfare, right?!

Here is a link to Fanfare's website. Check it out, take notes, hitchhike, sell your kid sister, pick a fight with a mime, whatever you gotta do to get your ass out to Detroit Fanfare on Halloween weekend! Good times are preordained, my friends! Hope to see you there!

Hugs, bro taps and dirty jokes for all--

Just a reminder that I'll be signing copies of my newest book, "LITTLE GREEN MEN" (published by Ape Entertainment) on Saturday from noon to 5 at Wonderworld Comics in Taylor, MI!  You can visit Wonderworld's website HERE for more info!

Like I mentioned before, "Little Green Men" (or LGM) is an all-ages comic, so it's perfectly appropriate for any age group to read (heck, I'm 36 and I'm reading it--and I write and draw the darn thing)! You can find out more about it by visiting my website's LGM page HERE! I'll also be selling some prints at Wonderworld and taking sketch commissions!

I will also be appearing at The Detroit Fanfare Comic Con on Oct. 30th and 31st (more info on that next week). But I need to mention that I WILL NOT HAVE COPIES OF LGM AT DETROIT FANFARE! So if you want to buy a copy and have me autograph it for you, this Saturday at Wonderworld is your only chance!
 Hope to see you there!

Much hugs--

Hey kids! I'm back with some dates for you to remember...

Saturday, October 16th, noon to 5 pm.
I'll have issues of LGM to sell, as well as original artwork and prints. For directions and other info, you can visit Wonderworld's website HERE. 
NOTE: LGM is an all-ages book, so this event is appropriate for anyone. That said, anyone who has a copy of my first graphic novel, "Dead Duck" (not even kinda all ages appropriate) and wants to get it autographed should bring it to this signing, and I'll be happy to oblige!

Saturday, Oct. 30th and 31st 
A brand new comic con in Dearborn, Michigan! Get all the info you need about it HERE! I'll have a table there, and will have some con exclusive items for sale, such as:
--Copies of Dead Duck!  I've got a new shipment coming in just in time for this con. As always, I'll sign copies, and will include an original sketch on the inside cover!
--My very first sketchbook! I've scavenged my recent sketchbooks, loose doodles and some of my favorite previously unseen work and compiled it all in "THE JAY P. FOSGITT SKETCHBOOK 1". It will be in a standard comic book format, 32 pages in length, and will have space on the front cover for a sketch! You can view my sketchbook's cover below...
And how about that adorable bunny trying to seal a mint condition copy of Action Comics #1? But this sketchbook, and I'll draw a caricature of you behind him as his hostage!

And hopefully you'll notice my new logo in the upper left corner of the cover...
This is the logo I plan on using for all my self published creations from now on! Not a bad name for my publishing outfit, huh?

For Fanfare, I'll also be accepting commissions, selling original art and prints! So lots of good stuff will be found at my table! Just look for the Dead Duck banner and I'll be there!

UPDATE 10/04/10: I totally forgot to mention that, at Detroit Fanfare, I'll be doing a panel discussion with syndicated cartoonists and my fellow National Cartoonist Society Members, Dave Coverly ("Speedbump") and Jef Mallett ("Frazz"), and Detroit Freepress editorial cartoonist Mike Thompson! That should be incentive enough to attend!

If you have any questions about either of these events, click on the links I provided for more info, or contact me at: Hope to see you guys soon!
