For those that don’t notice that awesome little convention schedule in the right corner of the site. That’s it! Just right over there… Betsy and I will be at the Murfreesboro Anime and Comic Convention next weekend, January 21st and 22nd. We’ll be selling Trouble Ticket comic books, buttons, and sketch cards as usual. We’ll also have something new… NEW!

Betsy and I will be selling original art from this point forward, along with prints of your favorite strips. We’re still beta testing the online store, so for now if you’re interested in a Trouble Ticket original strip or a print you can click the “Buy This Strip” button under the comic, which should take you to the original art page where you can place your order. (currently we’re only accepting orders through PayPal)

“Buy This Strip” will be coming to the Fruit store within the next few days, so don’t worry!

In addition, we’ve finally gotten our studio site off the ground as well. For the latest news on FRUIT! and Trouble Ticket, you can check out our label, Pink Pineapple Ink.

In the coming weeks, we’ll be adding a store (proper) to Pink Pineapple Ink where you can pick up buttons, comic books, original art, and some really swanky t-shirts that should be available sometime in February.

Finally, as you can see, I’ve started doing Trouble Ticket strips in SUPERTECHNOMAGICOLOR! I’m using the same markers that Betsy uses for her strip and I’m loving this process. I feel like it makes the original much more impressive and it looks better on the web as well.

So that’s it! Buy some stuff, come see us next weekend and say hi, and keep reading!
