Are you still with me...?

Okay. So last Wednesday's Live Sketch Show did not go smoothly. The problem was, I broadcasted from my new computer for the first time, and the Ustream website didn't jive with my new PC at all. I was somehow prevented from activating "broadcast", and after finally figuring out the problem fifteen minutes into the show, I still couldn't get the sound to work, which took another five to ten minutes to figure out. While I monkeyed with the website, I noticed a lot of folks on the chat window were wondering why I was absent for that first half hour. By the time I got things all worked out, a lot of those people had long since left and never came back. Needless to say, I was in a crap mood after that and my whole game was thrown off.

This week's show will be better.

Catch me Wednesday night at 8 pm eastern time at this link, where I'll be working on one of my current projects (Marvel Universe 2011 cards for Rittenhouse, Transylvania Television cartoons, Bodie Troll, Little Green Men, Necronomicomics). As always, I encourage you to contact me during the show via Ustream's chat window! You need to log in to Ustream to use the window, but registering is easy. It only takes a username and an email address. Once you've entered that info, you can chat with me. Just like always, I'll have loads of useless trivia and my own brand of quirky humor to inject (or infect) into each sketch I create!

NOTE: After this week, my Live Sketch Show will start airing every other week, due to my ever-growing pile of projects. I'll remind folks when next week rolls around.


Though the official release date for Rue Morgue Magazine #111 was Sunday, May 1st, no bookstore that I've contacted has received the new issue yet. However, reliable informants tell me the issue is due to hit shelves today or Wednesday. That's when you'll be able to see my "Necronomicomics" for the first time in print, which excites me to no end! I mentioned this in last week's blog, but it bears repeating here...

I'm starting an online campaign to get "Necronomicomics" into Rue Morgue as a regular feature, and I need YOU to send some e-mails! Contact your local bookstore (most big chain stores carry it)  and ask for issue #111 of Rue Morgue Magazine (it has an illustration of director John Waters on the cover and looks like this). Buy the crap out of it, then send the most glowing, persuasive, begging e-mail you can to the editor and the art director, telling them how much you dig "Necronomicomics", and how you want to see it as a regular feature! Sound like something you'd be interested in? I know I am! Here are the addresses you need to write to:

DAVE ALEXANDER (Editor in Chief, letters to the editor) dave@rue-morgue.com
GARY PULLIN (Art Director) gary@rue-morgue.com

Remember, the issue should come out today or Wednesday, but keep looking until you find it! Thanks in advance to anyone willing to help. Your collective efforts got "Dead Duck" in print and completely sold out that first printing, so I know your help could positively effect "Necronomicomics"!  


This Saturday from10:00 am to 6:00 pm, I'll be at Wonderworld Comics for free comic book day! I'll have comics and prints for sale and will be doing sketches for anyone interested! Wonderworld is located at 22347 Ecorse Road in Taylor, MI. Hope to see you there!

The second volume of "Little Green Men" is being released by Ape Entertainment on May 31st, and you can pre-order it on Amazon now by clicking here! Like the previous volume that came out in 2010, I wrote and drew the stories within, based on characters created by Ape publishers David Hedgecock and  Brent Erwin. So if you're into collecting my work in print, this is a book you should grab while you can!


That's about it for now. As a recap:

1. Watch my show Wednesday night!
2. Find Rue Morgue #111 and help me in my campaign to get "Necronomicomics" a regular spot!
3. Come see me on FCBD at Wonderworld this Saturday!
4. Pre-order "Little Green Men" now!

Glad to have you on board, friends and fans! Together we can spread my wonky imagination across the globe like some kinda Alaskan Moose Pox or something cool like that!

Hello Mr. Fosgitt, I for one enjoy the sketch shows unfortunately my new job will not permit me to see them live anymore so thats the main reason I'm not in the watchers list I will continue to support your art through commissions and things and encourage others to buy art from you.
