All the technical problems I’ve been having with the site these last few weeks have finally come to an end. The main culprit was that the site was on an old server, so migration to a new server was required. Everything is complete now, so you can continue to read Suburban Fairy Tales (or any of my other comics) without interruption. Thanks for everyone’s patience!

In addition to having all four Suburban Fairy Tales books for sale, I will also have signed copies of Made To Malfunction: The Complete Collection, free original sketches with every book purchase, and original sculptures by Hampton’s sculptor Justin Hart! A preview of the Frog Prince sculpture can be seen in the photo, but other characters will also be available for sale. These sculptures will be limited so make sure you stop by the Suburban Fairy Tales booth early if you want one!
NYCC 2014 was a lot of fun. I met some old fans and made some new ones. Here is just a small sampling of photos from around the Suburban Fairy Tales booth. Click the thumbnails below to view the image full size.
I thought I would share the creative baking of Bruce Connelly, who I met at NY Comic Con back in October. Bruce discovered Suburban Fairy Tales at the convention booth and has since become a huge fan of Gingerbread Man (or G-Man, as he likes to call him). As you can see, his Gingerbread Man can try to run, but it doesn’t look like he’ll get very far. I’m sure he’s tasty, though.
It’s been a long time coming, but I’ve finally decided to dive into the world of color! Going forward, new Suburban Fairy Tale strips will be colored regularly. Color obviously takes longer, so I’m hoping I can continue to do three strips per week. If not, I might need to revert back to black and white, but for now I think color is doable. Hope you all enjoy it!
The submitted fan art could be anything — a sketch or drawing, a sculpture, Suburban Fairy Tales cosplay — just be creative and show me your interpretation of a character (or characters) from the Suburban Fairy Tales universe. Do try to keep your entry PG-rated.
The winner will receive a FREE signed copy of any single Suburban Fairy Tales book of their choice, plus an original drawing! The winner will be showcased on the front page of the Suburban Fairy Tales website. All other entries will then be added to a fan art gallery for everyone to see.
Entries must be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than May 15, 2015. Make sure to include your name so the artwork can be attributed properly.
Today is the last day to submit fan art for the Suburban Fairy Tales Fan Art Contest! Send your submissions to email@example.com for your chance to win a FREE Suburban Fairy Tales book plus an original drawing.
Thank you to everyone who entered the Suburban Fairy Tales Fan Art Contest! All entries have been received and the winner will be contacted via email and their winning entry will be posted here sometime next week. Even though the deadline for submissions has passed, judging won’t happen this weekend, so if you still have something you’d like to submit, you can still submit your fan art through Sunday, May 17. After that date there are no guarantees that your artwork will be included in the judging, but it most certainly will be included in the upcoming fan art gallery. Submissions can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Good luck to all!
Congratulations to Daniel Park, winner of the Suburban Fairy Tales Fan Art Contest! All the entries I received were great, but Daniel’s fan art was very creative — he attempted to explore the history of Rapunzel, Goldilocks, and Red Riding Hood by drawing their ancestors. This is something even I never thought about when writing the comic.
Daniel has chosen Made To Malfunction: The Complete Collection as his prize (he already had all the other Suburban Fairy Tales books).
You can check out all the other fan art entries along with previously submitted fan art in the new Suburban Fairy Tales Fan Art Showcase. Thank you to everyone for their submissions!
The dates are June 13-14, 2015 at the Cradle of Aviation Museum in Garden City, NY.
I will be at the table the entire weekend selling all four Suburban Fairy Tales books and my one Made To Malfunction book. Free original sketches will be given away with every book purchase. In addition, I will be selling Suburban Fairy Tales posters and original Frog Prince sculptures by Hamptons sculptor Justin Hart.
Tickets are now available for purchase on the Eternal Con website. Hope to see you there!
