Hot One Inch ActionThis weekend, I’m in the Hot One Inch Action show at the Hot Art Wet City gallery here in Vancouver. It’s a special one-night-only show on Saturday, September 27, 7 PM – 11 PM, featuring art on one-inch buttons.

When you arrive, you can buy a bag of random buttons for $5, and then the haggling begins as you try to trade for the buttons you really really want. Featuring fifty local artists and limited-edition buttons that you won’t see anywhere else, including one designed by yours truly.

Hope to see you there! Here are the details, and here’s the event on Facebook.

Update: Here’s a picture of my button from the show!

Doug on PinterestHmmm I think it’s time for another social media update, because I forgot to tell you that I’ve started posting the daily comics on Pinterest so you can now follow me there.

And I also started a new tumblr for posting other people’s stuff that I like – check it out.

And you can still find me on:
- Instagram – mostly behind-the-scenes sketches and cat photos
- Twitter – random thoughts, retweets, links to the comics
- Tumblr – my original Tumblr where I post my comics and other Savage Chickens stuff
- GoComics – classic strips every weekday (and they have a cool app)
- Facebook – where I swing by and say hello now and then.
- Flickr – more photos
- Google+ – mostly links to comics

VanCAF

The Vancouver Comic Arts Festival is this weekend on May 24 and 25, and I’m going to be there! It’s at the Roundhouse Community Centre in Vancouver, and admission is FREE! And there are going to be even more amazing artists this year! Here are the details!

I’ll be at table H2 and I’ll be selling Savage Chickens books, and my Cat Adventures booklets, buttons, and t-shirts. This year I’m bringing kids’ sizes for the shirts, and I’m introducing a new set of buttons!

On Sunday May 25, from 11:00 AM to 11:45 AM, I’m hosting a panel discussion called “Comedy in the Comics: How To Be Hilarious”. I’m very happy to have Angela Melick, Ian Boothby, and Kris Straub join me for a chat about how we write funny comics. Come learn our comedy secrets!

Carded 2014I’m appearing in this year’s Carded! art show at the Hot Art Wet City gallery in Vancouver. It’s a special one-night show – Saturday, April 26, 7 PM – 11PM – featuring art on trading cards.

When you arrive, you can buy a set of random cards for $5, and then you get to haggle with strangers to trade for the cards you really want. It’s going to be a lot of fun, and you’ll get a handful of collectible limited-edition trading cards. Hope to see you there! Here are the details, and here’s the event on Facebook.

And here’s a sneak peek at the trading cards. See if you can spot mine…
