Comics for Kilimanjaro [Mar. 27th, 2008|06:37 pm]
Previous Entry Share Next Entry

This summer, I'm gonna climb Mount Kilimanjaro. My sister will be there on a research project studying hyenas, so I'm gonna meet up with her, and the two of us are gonna make it to the top, or die trying. But it seems you can't climb without a registered guide. And one of those is gonna cost us a pretty penny.

If you donate 5 bucks for me to climb Kilimanjaro, I will mail you as much original art as I can fit in an envelope. I have a whole drawer full here.... Flight pages, guest strips, fan art, custom comics.... anything I've posted in the last year, chances are it's here. I'll try and make sure you get a complete story. If you have any specific requests, I'll do my best (you can ask if something's available beforehand if you want it) Keep in mind that most of this is just ink on cheap copy paper, with white out all over it, and I do a lot of finishing digitally. But you send me 5 bucks (if you're in North America), I'll send you a stack. You send me ten, I'll add in some random presents from Mexico (that deal goes for anywhere in the world).

This offer lasts about 2 weeks, because I'm going to mail them while on a road trip to Vegas to avoid international shipping costs.

A envelope full of art to anywhere in North America, $5:
SOLD OUT
A envelope full of art and presents to anywhere in the world, $10:
SOLD OUT

I fixed it. Now shipping should be free, unlike your mother. Who charges money in exchange for sexual intercourse.

Edit: Since this comment has dropped to the bottom of the page, I should note that I was talking about Bryan's mom, and not Tessibean's.

Your mom is free, though. She actually paid me last night.

She didn't have money so she gave me some of your old comic pages. I guess I don't even really need to donate now.

I donated not so much for the comics, but because I really want to see video documentation of your crazy adventures atop Kilimanjaro! Sounds like such a fun trip!

(Also, I didn't know awesome ran in your family.. studying hyenas? I'm envious!)

She's a zoologist in training.
And It'll be fun trying to film while trying to conserve my 3 batteries for 6 days.

Fair point. Photo montage instead? ^_^

And thats really awesome for your sister! Not sure where things changed, but up until 11th grade, thats what I wanted to be. I'd be more excited about the National Geographic specials that came on at noon on Saturdays, than the cartoons that preceeded it.

Oh, I'm still gonna film an episode, I'll just have to be careful with the batteries, and only turn on the camera when something REALLY awesome happens.

And probably save an entire battery for when we get to the top, just to be safe.

Would the random presents part possibly include any mentos? I collect mentos, and I'll totally give $10 (I'd probably give $10 anyway, but..) if there are any exotic flavours, or even mentos with Spanish on the packaging.

I just sent you $10, but in Australian money it was $11. I better get my money's worth! I needed that extra dollar for candies.

I just FAILED at PayPal. Wasn't there supposed to be some textbox for leaving a note that gets emailed with the transaction details? Also was confusing in that it would only display the last 3 lines of the mailing address instead of everything. WHAT?

Anyway. I'd like to request the Frank the Comic strips! (to be put up in the new office of course)

And yay for goodies from Mexico! I think there was something from there that I really liked, but I can't remember what now.

Please don't die on the climb. We'd like to see the finished episode of the adventure! :D

I got your PayPals A-okay.
I don;t have the Frank originals..... those were all left in India. But I'll draw you some Franks and whatnot.

Yay! <3

My train of thought just went from Frank the Goat to Meme the Sheep to the copycat drawing meme from the Todd Goldman thing. You should start a drawing meme.
