Watson with Cat Adventures
The Vancouver Comic Arts Festival (VanCAF) is this weekend and I’ll be there! And I’m bringing a bunch of fun new stuff with me. I’ll be debuting a little book of my favourite cat comics (shown above with a sleeping Watson), and I’m bringing new locally-made buttons (shown below) and t-shirts!

Admission is free and there will be events all day Saturday and Sunday, including a panel discussion that I’m hosting, called “Breaking Into Comics” on Sunday May 26 at noon. I am fortunate to have the following talented guests on the panel: Ed Brisson, Jason Turner, Jesse Davidge, and Lucy Bellwood. We’ll be talking about how we all got started in this crazy comics business, and hopefully our stories will give you some ideas.

If you’re in Vancouver, I hope you can make it to VanCAF – it looks like it’s going to be a lot of fun!

Update: Here’s a link to a recording of the Breaking Into Comics session!

    Will you be making this one an ebook too? I love my zombies book and love book and would adore a cat one!

      Great to hear you’re liking those ebooks! I’m working on a few new ones right now, but not a cat-related one. But I am working on another special cat book project – hopefully coming soon! 🙂

    I love those buttons! I hope those will appear for sale soon. Or you find some reason to come to Houston with your merchandise. 🙂

    I LOVE the cat buttons! Please, please tell me where I can buy them? I have to wear a hat at work, and would love to decorate it with your buttons. (and it would be the perfect present to give myself for my birthday!)

    I’d love to have that book. Will you make it available to the ones who couldn’t go to the festival too?

    I’d love to buy those buttons too! Couldn’t find them in the store. Any chances they could be shipped to Brazil?

  6. Kathleen says:

    I bought this book from you at VanCAF (a few copies – needed some for gifts). I love it! I’m kicking myself for not picking up some of the buttons too. Any chance there’s somewhere in Vancouver where I can buy them?

    • Doug says:

      I’m sure I’ll be doing another event around town some time soon. I’ll let you know! And I’ll be putting the buttons up for sale on the website soon!

    Do you know if a video of that panel discussion is available somewhere on the interwebs? I’d love to see it … trying to ‘break in’ to the webcomics myself. 🙂

    Thanks everybody for the interest in the new cat stuff! I’ll be making all of these things available on the web site soon – I’ll keep you posted!
