331 – Retail Problems #6 and the last

But really.

I AM SO SORRY FOR THE FOUR WEEK ABSENCE. The past month has been a roller coaster of evens and happenings that just took me away from the sketchbook for too long. A quick explanation for my absence week by week:

  • Week 1 – A dreadful 48-hour stomach bug that left me bed-ridden (0r toilet-hugging), final wedding preparations for Lizzie’s wedding, work, and job interview for a new job (which I got hired!). Needless to say, I almost died this week.
  • Week 2 – Work the last days of my old job the first half of the week, and from Wednesday on, I was Maid of Honor for Lizzie at her wedding (and to be honest, I didn’t really want to deal with comic business while having fun with their wedding. I knew this week I wasn’t going to post a long time ago.)
  • Week 3 – Doctor’s appointments the first half of the week while preparing for starting my new job, and started the Wednesday of this week. Plus I had personal plans come up on the weekends while off, so I wasn’t home AT ALL.
  • Week 4 (this past week) – First full week on the new job. I used all my lunch breaks to work on this comic and finally come back with a 12-panel big bang.

So now that I’ve worked the new job for at least a week, I have adjusted and know what free time I have. I am back, y’all!


Less than two weeks until the Creative Women’s Conference in Denton, Texas! I will be there representing the box! THAT BEING SAID, I want to create one more print before I go. SO YOU GET TO VOTE! VOTE BY CLICKING HERE on the theme of the next art print I sell!
Also: I will be part of the panel “Art, Comics, and Graphic Design” in the main panel room and the “Sketch Dojo” during the CreateSpace Events! So be sure to come see me!

AND if you want to come by my table to file a complaint on the lack of comic, I will personally give you a ‘Never Shank a Baby’ sticker and a hug. Because I love you guys and I feel so bad for the hiatus. Thanks for sticking with the Box, y’all!

New ETSY prints!

Hello everyone!

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.

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!


STRIP-Con 2011

Spent the weekend in Plano, Texas for STRIP – The Dallas Webcomics Expo! AND I HAD A TON OF FUN.

So I set up my table and sat there trying not to look totally lost and just started drawing. (Cryanide and Happiness was across the way, and if you know me, you can probably guess that I pretty much freaked when they entered the building.) It didn’t get too crazy until an hour and a half-ish after the doors opened.



OK! So tomorrow I leave for Strip-Con to pimp out Elia in a Box: The Webcomic!
Here’s a bit of information I would love to share!

So if you come to my table, I will be giving out free skittles BECAUSE I THINK EVERYONE SHOULD TASTE THE RAINBOW!!!
I will also be drawing people for free in crayon in my comic form and I will take a picture of the person with it to hopefully have a little collection to post.

The comics for sale will be:
- The Rebecca Black April Fool’s comic
- The Old Spice – Elia in a Box-style comic
- Thank You Harry comic

But not to worry! I will also have mini order forms for print orders so I can get requests printed and mailed out to you!

I will also be taking comission orders there! HUZZAH!

And I’ll be at table 48 with Dave Barrack of Grrl Power!
