Recap: Annapolis Book Festival 2013
This past Saturday was the first-ever Annapolis Book Festival that Curls Studio has exhibited at. There were a lot of families to meet and young children interested in discovering comics. Plus I got to meet Clifford the Big Red Dog and ate free ice cream! We also gave out free issues of Magic Bullet #6, Washington D.C.'s comics newspaper.

Donate to Curls Studio
If you enjoy Curls Studio products, please donate to keep us motivated and in action! We travel locally in DC, MD, and VA... but also need your support to pay for printing costs and travel expenses for events like New York Comic Con. Your help is needed and appreciated. You never know what could come your way if you donate to Curls Studio.
MORE WAYS TO SUPPORT CURLS STUDIO!
I just made a Wishlist at Blick Art Materials and thought I'd share it with you. It works just like a gift registry, so you'll know exactly what I want and your contribution will go instantly to the production of my comics.
We can not guarantee that these stores have Curls Studio books in stock at the moment, so please call ahead if you are concerned. My self-published work is available to retailers via small press agent Tony Shenton. Please contact me with any further questions.
