ABSTRACT STUDIO COMICS – JOURNAL
It’s on! Abstract Studio Con begins today at 10AM CST and runs until Sunday 5PM CST.
*All orders ship FREE within the USA!
*All books will be signed!
*Con Sketches! Original Art from every book!
You can order 1 book or 100 books and your order ships free within the USA. So now is a good time to get the big heavy books. And I will sing all books that are ordered. You also get first crack at all my con sketches. These are usually held back for convention shows, but with ECCC cancelled, Abstract Studio Con is our show for this weekend. So it’s as if you went to the show, bought books and art and got home with them for no shipping costs… and you didn’t have to worry about price of admission, parking, hotels, or con crud! Perfect!
And just to make it official, every purchase gets a VIP Pass to prove you attended this very cool show.
I’m going to do some Live feeds and reports during the con so stay tuned about that. I’ll post on YouTube, Twitter, Instagram and Facebook with it. Maybe do some Live Q&A.
So welcome to Abstract Studio Con. Browse, look around the “floor” (shop), pick up some goodies and join me in some Live time stuff this weekend. Have fun!
Announcing Abstract Studio Con!
Thur – Sun, 3/12—3/15.
All con orders = FREE SHIPPING in US!
All my con sketches will be for sale online, for once!
Details + today’s Art Lesson: how I work under deadline:
We’re off to C2E2 this weekend for the first convention of the 2020 season. As usual, Robyn is totally ready and I still need to go pack. But I am prepared with a folder full of sketch art. I managed to draw about 30 new pieces. I’ve been posting them on my social media accounts but I’ll attached a few samples below. BTW, you can find me at “TerryMooreArt” on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.
In book news, Five Years #8 is out on the stands. Lilith makes a powerful entrance into the series and Zoe encounters a couple of big mean intimidating guards. Oh so scary… for them. 😉
At the show this weekend we will have the Five Years: Fire In The Sky trade paperpack, the new 2020 Sketchbook, and the giant of all books the Strangers In Paradise Gallery Edition. Plus the omnibuses of Rachel Rising, Echo, Motor Girl, and Strangers In Paradise XXV, new lapel pins of Francine and Katchoo and much more. I hope to see you there!
FIVE YEARS #7
I finished issue 7 of Five Years last night and sent it off to the printer. (We use Brenner Printing in San Antonio, TX for all our single issues and they have been fantastic to work with over the years, always prompt and accomodating, AND they get the books to Diamond for me. That alone is a huge contribution. So I highly recommend them to you if you’re an indy cartoonist looking for a printer.) So this issue is real now and scheduled to hit the stands January 8, 2020. Here’s your TV Listing teaser:
“Katchoo arrives in freezing Moscow to find the welcome mat is six floors down. But the falling snow reveals an old friend who helps Katchoo back to her feet.”
Three guesses who the old friend is. 🙂

2020 Convention Schedule:
Robyn has a list of confirmed conventions dates for next year. This list is likely to expand as some shows are still being discussed but here’s what we have so far… uhmm, look to the right. And there they are. I just wanted to point that out in case you missed it. Watch Upcoming Appearances for updates.
I hope you have a wonderful holiday season. 2019 has been an incredible year in many ways and I am extremely grateful for the privilege to continue doing what I love. You make that possible. Thank you.
