Word On The Street 2008

Last Sunday was the annual Word On The Street festival in Toronto, and despite calls for rain, the day ended up being warm and sunny. Once again Ultraist Studios was in attendance with Possum Press, and this year we debuted the SPY GUY and The POSSUM Superhero Movie cut-out stand-ups for the first time ever, which got a lot of attention (and photos).

An interesting side note:  I noticed all day that I was drawing a disproportionately large number of sketches with children robbing banks.  Must be a sign of our times.

  1. Those stand-ups are VERY eye-catching. I’m sure it makes your table really stick out from the others.

    nice sketches, I bet the fans really like that you personalize the drawings for them. Very clever, and takes a special kind of artist.

    Keep at it

  2. Will do J_ay!

    And yeah, those stand-ups did turn out nicely. It’s interesting too that the characters are starting to get recognized; people are starting to say “where have I seen this before?” or “oh, someone said I should read this!” as though subliminally SPY GUY is starting to be imprinted into the collective mass consciousness. Watching this awareness grow (albeit at a glacierally slow speed) is fascinating.

    Now that the pages are locked, I can’t wait to get this next comic printed. Been drawing more in the last week than I have in months.

    Have you done anything more with your stuff?
