I believe it was almost a month and a half ago when we got the harebrained idea to turn my daily work doodling into an actual thing. A book! A comic book?An art book? Well, all of those combined. We looked at different printers and figured out how we wanted it to look, how much it would cost, what size was it going to be?
Well, I’m proud to see, it worked out. #Workcomics Vol.1 is here and in my hands and I’m so so happy
Isn’t it cute?! (And the paper is so nice, like omg) And its the color of the actual post-it notes! Not only that, we kept all the creases and folds and tiny cat teeth mark the originals had to authenticate that yes, these were really post-it notes and yes, my cats really like to steal them.
These may be the only run of Vol.1 so they are limited in quantity and over all, just limited edition. Vol. 1 covers from April to June from when I first started it to about when we started getting the book ready for print.
The front cover is actually the very first #Workcomic I ever did and the back is brought to you by Lubbock’s very own Star Comics who were gracious enough to sponsor the book so we could get it made. They’ve been so so so supportive of all my weird ideas and projects (like wanting to start a Ladies Night then wanting to make a baby comic book) so I’m incredibly grateful to them. Thanks, guys!
The books will be available to purchase online September 1st on my Etsy shop when it goes live again and they’ll be $10. If you are in Lubbock this weekend, I will have copies at my booth for Hub City Comic Con so you can get them in person! And first! We are limited to roughly 45 copies so get them while you can!
And to celebrate the release, on September 1st I want you to do your own #Workcomic. Doodle at work (don’t get in trouble though) either on some paper or a post-it note and hashtag it #Workcomics so I can see. You can tag me on Twitter @Raico13 or Instagram @ Raicodoll. It’s like an art day!
Thank you so much to everyone who has supported me and this book! And now, back to prepping for the convention!
