I had an awesome time at the MCM Scotland in Glasgow this weekend. I sold many cards and prints, I have also had a few inquiries about commissions too.
Booked another convention :-)Just booked a table at another convention. I have to say I love doing this travelling all over the UK and the fact I make money is a bonus. Thank you to anybody who has swung by my stall and bought something.
Here is my current list of conventions...
DEVCON Exeter - 5th April 2014DEVCON Plymouth - 4th May 2014Bristol Comic Expo - 10-11th May 2014MCM London - 23-25th May 2014London Film and Comic Con - 11-13th July 2014MCM Manchester - 19-20th July 2014ICE International Comic Expo, Birmingham - 2nd August 2014Melksham Comic Con - 30-31st August 2014Nottingham Comic Con - 4th October 2014I hope to see some of you guys at one of these
My Shop is now OpenDue to the success of my stalls at comic book conventions I have decided to add a shop to my website.
take a look on http://www.stuartmcghee.com/shop.html as this is my first attempt at making a shop and I am not a web designer any feedback will be welcome.
Also as Christmas is soon approaching I have also made a Christmas Card Bumper Pack of all 13 of my designs. Ideal Christmas Cards to those people who don't like Christmas
Even More Comic Cons :-)I have now booked a few more comic conventions for next year. Including the MCM London which I have had my eye on for a while but it was sold out until today when they released more tables.
Here is my list so far...
Armadacon, Plymouth 16-17th November 2013MCM Birmingham 23-24th November 2013Exeter Comic Expo 1st December 2013AniManga Pop!, Plymouth 8th February 2014London Super Comic Con 15-16th March 2014Bristol Comic Expo 10-11th May 2014London MCM 23-25th May 2014
ICE International Comic Expo, Birmingham 2nd August 2014
It seems I will be quite busy next year. Good times :-D
Busy BusyYou may have noticed that I have not posted anything on DA for a while. The reason for this is I am working on a new book and my publisher wants it out for Christmas so it is a mad rush to get it done and all other illustration work has been put on hold. The book will be based on my Christmas card design and written by Leyland Perree (who wrote my previous books The Great Reef Race and Which Witch is Which?). Here is the chap the book is based on...
I also have a few comic conventions to do before Christmas so I hope I get it all done in the next couple of weeks. I am not used to working this fast and I hope the standard is up to my previous works.
Talking of Comic Conventions (all in the United Kingdom) here is a list of where I will be attending selling my cards and prints...
16-17 Novemeber 2013 - Armadacon (Plymouth)
23-24 November 2013 - MCM Birmingham
1 December 2013 - Comic Expo Exeter
15-16 March 2014 - London Super Comic Convention
More Comic ConventionsJust finished the Dev Con 1 Sci-Fi and Comic Convention in my home town of Plymouth on Saturday and this has given me enough money to buy a table at London Super Comic Con next year. Also somebody asked me if I would do Armadacon in November and I have sent an e-mail and I am still waiting to hear.
Here is my up to date list of Conventions I will be attending...
5th October 2013 - Nerd Fest in Nottingham
14-17th November 2013 - Armadacon, Plymouth (to be confirmed)
23-24th November 2013 - MCM Birmingham
1st December - Exeter Comic Expo
15-16th March 2014 - London Super Comic Convention
I have my eyes on some other conventions and I am waiting until they go live for bookings.
Motivation is back :DYou may of noticed I have had a sudden attack of motivation. I think it is down to having more work coming my way. I am off to Glasgow, Scotland this weekend to run a table selling cards and prints of my drawings at the MCM Scotland, just found out that they are extending the opening times due to high ticket sales which bodes well. I have another convention at the end of the month is my home town of Plymouth, Dev Con 1, this is the first convention of this size in Plymouth, so it should be interesting.
Also my publisher has asked me to illustrate a book based on my Christmas pudding monster the only problem is that he wants it for this Christmas and the author Leyland Perree has not even finished writing it yet.
No motivation :-(I have recently broken up with my girlfriend and all my motivation has gone.
Apart from the breakup things are going my way with my next children's book due for release in October and the many comic conventions where I will be selling cards anid prints.
I should be very motivated but I am not.
More Comic ConsI have now booked and payed for a table at the MCM Scotland Comic Con. I now have 4 conventions booked....

Protecting yourself from Paypal chargebacksI decided I'd write something on this since it seems to be affecting a lot of my friends and artists I'm close to. I'll start with a few disclaimers.
I am not a finance expert. I have never filed a chargeback nor have I been in a chargeback dispute (fortunately). I have done some research out of both curiosity and out of desire to help out the community a bit. This is going to be quick(ish) and summarized. I'm also going to be changing some things to the way I sell as well (obviously).
This journal isn't about what to do in a chargeback dispute but rather, how to set up your sales so that you'll have the upper hand when having to deal with a dispute. I've included some useful links at the bottom for further information!
Regular Payments / ABs
Some believe that Paypal does not help in disputes over digital goods but a policy

Printed Minky Reviewedit to add: yes the printed minky is washable! I didn't wash mine, but according to spoonflower "Wash separately in cool or warm water using a gentle machine cycle. Machine dry using a low temperature or permanent press setting and remove promptly to avoid wrinkles." Although please don't machine wash a plush, ahah. Just the fabric.
So I recently got the chance to play with printed minky! Here's a sort of review about it
Bought from: spoonflower.com
Price: $28/yrd. Very expensive, but for a very versatile product of this quality it's definitely justified.
Shipping: Only $6 to Canada, with tracking, took about a week and a half to arrive once shipped, no duties. A+
File prep: spoonflower has very simple requirements that are easy to follow. I scanned my pattern pieces, cleaned them up and colored them, then I copied them into a file that was set to spoonflower's specifications (150dpi, set to the width of minky. I added length as I needed it). To make sure my pieces
