Rainy Day Robot


So I just started a new site. It’s a webcomic with the Alison and Her Rainy Day Robot characters. I’m hoping to put out two of these strips per week for a year or so, see how that goes.

Here’s one of the strips. If you wanna check out more, head to alisonandherrobot.com. Thanks! And I hope you like!

So for my mom’s birthday, I did a fun pic for her. It’s based off a photo from a couple years ago when we were on a train going from Prague to Budapest.

Some years ago, I got into a conversation with Adam WarRock. We talked about possibly working on something together, but of course, life gets busy. Anyway, WarRock recently put together this song as part of a donation drive.

 

I had some time so I decided to use this as inspiration for a poster.

The cool part is that, because of this, WarRock decided to give the song as a free download. So if anyone likes the song, they can get it at this link: Stark Industries. I like when nice things lead to more nice things.

I had heard WarRock some years ago. I enjoy his songs as a fan of comics and hip-hop. Though really, the first song of his that got me was Ira Glass. I’m a huge NPR nerd. Anyway, even if the Stark Industries song didn’t hit you, I’d say give this Ira Glass song a listen, it’s good stuff: Ira Glass

(Message to Dave Wachter: I know, I know. This American Life is PRI, not NPR. Bite me.)

Also, for those that are curious about how Alison and Her Rainy Day Robot is going, I’m starting to get it into a couple stores. Rock! So for those in the Bay Area or Portland, Oregon, you can find copies at:

Fantastic Comics in Berkeley, Book Passage in Corte Madera, Floating World Comics in Portland, and LandPDX in Portland. And of course, you can order copies through DCBService.

I’m still working on getting the books out there, and a few should be coming to some NYC shops soon. I’ll keep you updated. Thank you all so so much for your support.

If anyone wants a copy of the Alison and Her Rainy Day Robot children’s comic, the Discount Comic Book Service is now carrying it for cheap. Here’s the link:

Hey everyone! So I’ve made it to the Bay Area. It’s really odd being outta Brooklyn—that place really has been my home for the past 7 years or so. Anyway, getting back to work on Rainy Day Robot along with some other stuff.

For everyone that’s pledged over $5, could you send me your address? I printed up the postcards to be sent your way. I don’t have the full book PDF ready yet, there are a lot more small tweaks than I expected. Still, I’m hoping it won’t take way too long.

I’ve contacted most of those that pledged over $150, asking preferences for original pages. There were a couple of you that I emailed, that never responded. If you see this post and realize you’re one of those pledgers, could you send me an email?

Thanks again! It’s gonna be a bit before the book can come out, but I am working a good deal on it. Will post again before too long!

Oh, and here’s the cover!

I gotta say, thank you SO incredibly much for helping me fund this project. Now I gotta get my butt in gear and put this thing out so you all have something fun to read! Pressure’s on.

I’ll be producing the postcards soon, as well as the finished PDF for Alison and her Rainy Day Robot. I’m hoping to get all those off mid-to-late December.

Then in January, I’ll be starting production on the book. I’m hoping to have those done and ready to mail out in March or April. Those books will be mailed out with orders for original pages and prints.

As for right now, my life is slowly being boxed up. I’m moving out of Brooklyn, headed to the Bay Area. In less than a week, Mom and I will be driving across country together.

I’ll do another update once I get to the Bay Area. As for now, here’s an unfinished pic of the back cover. Gotta add some shading and some raindrops.

The Rainy Day Robot Kickstarter project is in it’s last day! I’d very much appreciate any last-minute pledges.

Though most of the illustrations were done before I started this kickstarter, there are still a couple I need to finish up. One is the cover pic. Well, I finally started it. I’ll scan it in and add colors next week, when I have access to the nice scanner. But I really liked it. Here’s the pic; hope you like!
