HAPPY 2019!

I hope that everyone had a great Christmas and New Year's. I'm coming out swinging in 2019 with some big changes in terms of my online presence:

Going forward, this email blast (along with my weekly Al's Audio Agenda and Mongoose Mondays), will now be done on a monthly basis. In the case of the audio agendas, those will be done either monthly or bi-monthly, since they will revolve around my convention appearances this year. Basically, I will be doing post-con agendas after every convention I do this year, which may be one or two a month, or even three. Mongoose Mondays will be renamed Mongoose Monthlies, and will still involve timelapse illustrations of figures of speech (and sometimes songs, movie titles, etc.). Lastly, this email blast will be sent out on a monthly basis as well on the first monday of each month. The reason for this change is to allow me more time to complete comic projects like the in progress Damn Tourists #5, which I would like to complete this spring. Since my books are the bread and butter of my business, I would like to give them the attention that they deserve, even if that means cutting down on other promotional projects that I do like the illustration games and these emails.

As for the conventions that I briefly mentioned, here's a reminder list below of the seven shows I'm booked for this year (so far):
