Free Comic Book Day, 2014!

Free Comic Book Day is here! Head on down to your favorite comic book store on Saturday May 3rd and pick up a great selection FREE comics! Just Click here to find the participating store nearest you!

This year, I’m honored to be spending Free Comic Book Day as a Special Guest of the incredible Heroes Aren’t Hard to Find in Charlotte, North Carolina! I’ll be signing comics (I’ll have vintage Owly Free Comics on hand!) and doing sketches along with tons of other guests!!

But hey, if you’re not in the Charlotte area, there’s no need to feel left out, Free Comic Book Day is a wold-wide event! All you have to do is walk into any comic book store and you’ll get a selection of comic books for absolutely FREE! Find a participating shop near you by clicking here and get there early to get the comics you want!

I’ve decided to take Owly independent, so there won’t be an Owly story in this year’s offering from Top Shelf. But my friends, Christian Slade’s Korgi, one starring Johnny Boo,Jess Smart Smiley, one from Ray Friesen, and a preview of the new graphic novel Monster on the Hill by Rob Harrell and
a story from Maddy Kettle by Eric Orchard (who also did the awesome cover)!

I hope to have a stand-alone Owly free comic out (complete with a brand new story) in time for next year! Until then I hope you all enjoy the new stories and have an amazing Free Comic Book Day!

Our Chewie needs your help…

Early this year our little cairn terrier Chewbacca was diagnosed with sick sinus syndrome, a deadly heart disease in which the heart stops every few beats. I haven’t posted much about this, but it’s been a rough couple of months as we’ve been struggling to help our little fuzzy guy… Luckily he made it through surgery and is now recovering.Our story has a happy ending, but emotionally and financially it’s taken quite a toll on us, and we could really use your help.

Please help Chewie and other doggies like him by donating to the ”Bless Chewie’s Heart Fund”. With a donation of $25 or more, you’ll receive a limited edition 5″x7″ “Bless Their Hearts” print starring Owly, Chewie, and their doggie friends!

Funds over the cost of Chewie’s continuing care will go to the U.G.A. Small Animal Teaching Hospital to help raise money for purchasing pacemakers for needy dogs who require them each year. Every little bit helps. Thanks so much!

Happy Holidays! :)

This year I’ve done an exclusive holiday print to share! If you purchase over $25 from my Owly Store you’ll get this print for free as a way of saying thanks! :)

For me, the holidays is a time for appreciating those around us, reflecting on what we’re thankful for and for sharing our love. I’m happy reflecting on the joy of this year, for for loving wives and caring moms, for friends of all shapes and sizes, for fluttering fins, and especially for little wagging tails.

Owly and Wormy are happy for love and understanding, curious little friends, for flapping wings and joyful songs. And we’re both happy for all of the people that take care of us keep us going and especially for all the Owly fans! Thank you all and have a safe and happy holiday season! We look forward to all of the adventures that await us in the new year! ^,^
