362 – Shut up, Peach
Sorry Mini A-kon was cancelled. I was really excited about meeting so many people! They said they’d try to reschedule but it seems highly unlikely.
IRREGARDLESS, yesterday was the 6th anniversary since the first Elia in a Box comic was made and so I wanted to celebrate. One thing I always ask for on my comic birthday, selfish I know, is to just tell someone who doesn’t know about the comic, about the comic. I love growing my audience and word of mouth is a powerful tool. Next is for you; all ETSY shop items get free shipping with code ‘BIRTHDAYBOX’! That includes the grab bags, my new mini comic book, and the discontinued items! The code is good until Saturday! (I extended it) You can see a preview of all the new comic in the new blog post on this site and on Tumblr!
SECONDLY, I want to have a little contest today since it is comic day! So on the Facebook page for the comic, I will be having 5 mini contest events and the winners will be winning a free copy of my mini comic book of comics! You can only win once and be willing to give your mailing address.
Thank you everyone who has been with the comic for 6 years or 6 minutes! You all keep me going and happy! Keep smiling! <3
Mini A-Kon Print Debuts
Creative Women’s Conference 2014
So a couple of weekends ago, I attended the Creative Women’s Conference in Denton. I had the best time ever. I met so many women who work in different artistic fields and got inspired. This conference came at a good time for me because I just started a new full-time job that isn’t really artistic at all, and I was feeling a bit depressed and uninspired and I would get home too tired and uninterested to draw. I saw all these women excelling at what they do nomatter what they were going through and it pumped me back up.
When we got there we were a few of the first ones there (I though traffic would be wild. It was not) so we set up calmly and on time.
New ETSY prints!
Since STRIP-Con was postponed, I decided to go ahead and reveal the new prints I am selling in the ETSY shop!
First I changed on thing in the shop: all 4×6 prints are discontinued and have been marked down to $1.50. They’re little versions of my main prints and are good for quick little gifts! After they’re all gone, I will only take small print orders by request.
NOW FOR THE PRINTS! First….a Legend of Zelda print!
And then….A POKEMON PRINT..S!!!
With this print, you can order either (or even both) the boy trainer or the girl trainer! I’m working on putting together a custom order trainer order soon. I will debut it at the Creative Woman’s Conference this September and then after I will see about selling it in the ETSY shop!
Meanwhile, the Sailor Moon print is discontinued because I want to make a new one in honor of the re-launch of the new Sailor Moon Crystal! It is now available for $3! All other prints are $5! And remember, I still have grab bags and misprints! GO SHOP NOW

Prints and Originals sales updates!
As spring is coming up, I will be doing some spring cleaning to my print sales process. Now that ETSY has updated it’s process and made it all pretty and shiny, I will be using it to operate all of my sales with my original comic art as well as prints of my comics.
I will be working on the transition for about the next month, and then I will have everything up and running and let you know as soon as it happens. Commission transactions will also continue to run through ETSY.
ALSO I will be graduating in May and once I’m out of school and just working my day job, I want to start hitting up the convention scene again! So any ideas on art you want to see from me, please comment on this post! I love to hear different fandoms get represented. Who knows? You might recommend something I’ve never heard of and I’ll enjoy it WHILE MAKING DOODLES OF IT!
NEW PRODUCTS! Buy all the box things!
I’ve added some new merchandise to the Box Shops! First off, though, keep your eye on the Store page if you want anything, because if there is s coupon code or sale going on in one of the shops, I WILL POST IT so you all get a good deal!
First in my ETSY print shop I have added a new print featuring the Princesses of Adventure Time drawn in my box-style. It is $5 plus shipping.
CLICK HERE TO GO SEE IT (and browse the shop while you’re there!)
Purchase a print and get a little gift!
With every purchase of a print in our print shop (click here to view it), you will get a ‘Never Shank a Baby’ sticker! Pretty cool, huh?
Strip-Con 2012 Report!
sdfsdjflasdkjflaskdjf Oh my god yesterday was awesome.
I want to thank everyone I met for being so awesome, thanks to all the people who bought things at my table, thanks to the people who purchased my art from the art auction, and just thanks to everyone involved in the con; artists, fans, and the guys who ran the show and made it all happen! It was a great experience.
Got there a little before 9 a.m. with Hannah K to set up. I feel like we got there too early because it was only us and like 5 others. Lol but it was still exciting!
Team ‘Box’ got to sit between Mr. Fes from Fesworks, LLC and the Texas Game Masters. They were cool! I even got interviewed by Fes for his podcast! Super cool!
