So that wraps our first ever remote con. Special thanks go out to Ultraist Agent Justin Kupka for making this possible. It will be interesting to see the residual effects of this experiment. I wonder if we’ll get any mail

SAN DIEGO COMIC-CON 2007: Update 2

Filed under: Announcements,Conventions,Photos — M Kitchen @ 1:04 pm

Ultraist Agent Justin Kupka (shown left) sends us this 2nd wave of intel live from the heart of the Con:

hahahah, all of the nerds have been very polite and orderly. And if you saw how they structured the freebie table, its in the wide open with tons of staff around and a lot of other people’s stuff, so i guarentee someone didnt just swipe the whole box.

Hey dude, how’s it going,

I took your comics into the con today. I hid them behind Kristen’s desk so i could go find the freebie table, and i looked everywhere but couldn’t find it, so i went back to her desk and her boyfriend had found it and put them out for me. So he directed me to the table, and before i could get a picture of them on the table, they were all gone, and it was litterally like 15 minutes after he put them down. So people LOVED them.

Sorry i couldn’t get a pic : (


Thanks Justin!

My only hope is that it wasn’t one sweaty fan-boy that swiped the whole box…

If you managed to get a freebie copy of SPUD & HARRY #1, please let me know what you thought of it. Spread them around, let your friends read it. Maybe even send in a pic! And if you DIDN’T get one, remember you can always buy one here.

Wow. 15 minutes. And I was worried there might be leftovers…

Still Hard at Work

Filed under: Announcements,Conventions,Photos,Sketches — M Kitchen @ 10:10 pm

Yet another convention picture taken by a secret spy cam! This one comes from Danny Truong who was much quicker in posting his convention sketch than I ever will be…

But he’s not the only happy Ultraist / Possum customer smearing his con sketch all over the internet. Chris Miller (who also left a comment a few posts back) has Beta-Ray Bill vs. Spy Guy floating through cyber-space as well.

Guest Artist Pin-Up Sketches!

Filed under: Announcements,Conventions,Sketches — M Kitchen @ 6:10 pm

Regular visitors will have noticed that I haven’t been posting much artwork recently. Well that is about to change with this post! I have 2 guest artist pin-up sketches. An Ultraist Studios Blog Journal FIRST!

Here we have SPY GUY with THE POSSUM drawn by Blair Kitchen! And the amazing thing about this drawing is that it is the first time in SPY GUY’s 20 year history (my God, has it been that long) that I have seen SPY GUY drawn by someone other than myself! Neat!

Here we have SPUD & HARRY drawn by über-fan Alan Groening. It was drawn on official Ultraist Studios stationary live at A.P.E.’07. Again, the first time in SPUD & HARRY’s 20 year history that I have seen SPUD & HARRY drawn by someone other than myself! Thanks!

There is something exciting about seeing another person draw a character that you’ve created.
