Friday Guest Spotlight: Brad Guigar


Where should we start with Brad Guigar? His current daily comic Evil Inc? His other weekly comic Courting Disaster? His Webcomics Weekly work with the other guys in the Half-Pixel collective? His Editorship of the Webcomics tutorial site Webcomics.com? Or the full-on authorship of many books?

As you no doubt have quickly picked up, Brad does more in a week than most people do in a year. The fact that he’s such a jovial fellow in person is the amazing part. He’s known for his good sense of humor (even when the other 3 members of Half-Pixel are ravaging him with NSFW comics depicting his supposed “Guigaring” exploits), and his sincere desire to speak and connect with his fans at his event appearances.

We’ve continually poked Brad to write up a book called “How to Sell Webcomics”, since his technique for getting people to quickly get acquainted, understand, and then buy his work is phenomenal. He just can’t keep copies of his books in stock at his table at con appearances–they come in and then out they go in shoppers hands. You can’t fake that kind of stuff–and you also can’t have crappy work to back it up. So what were saying is hit his table first, or you’ll be out of luck later.

Brad will primarily be at Intervention on Saturday Sept. 11th, so make your plans early and pick your route to his table asap.

Wednesday Supporter Spotlight: What To Do?


We get contacted by any number of people who ask us how they can help make Intervention a success this year. These spotlight posts will focus on easy and quick ways you can do little things to help out if you so wish. (like printing the above linked flyer PDF).

First off, we have a resource page to help out–https://interventioncon.com/get-involved/, this page has many different link banners (please copy them and place them on your own server or image hosting site–hotlinking to them on our site isn’t the best choice) as well as printable flyers in PDF format that print to regular 8 1/2 X 11 paper size. If you print them up just cut the paper into 4’s and you have some flyers you can give out. If you are attending another con, gaming group, geeky movie premiere, or any place that internet savvy folk go–distributing a few flyers can really help us out.

And the last tip–tell your friends about Intervention. Mention us on Facebook, Myspace, Twitter, Live Journal, Deviant Art, ….anyplace you go that you think would have people who would groove on the con–just don’t be spammy (so post in threads about going to cons, or if people are asking about things to do, etc.).

Anyway, we’ll post more tips over time–but we want to thank everyone who is helping out and spreading the word–and we appreciate all of the work you guys are doing to make Intervention a success this year.

Thank you,
Harknell and Onezumi

Friday Guest Spotlight: Rob Balder


Rob Balder does way too much.

Constantly.

Rob started things up with his first comic PartiallyClips in 2001, which is now (and practically from the start) syndicated in a number of magazines and newspapers. Starting a trend that has characterized his work, he looked at a problem (he’s not a visual artist) and came up with a unique solution by taking clip art and assigning his own signature verbal humor as the focal point.

Not content to stop at one area, Rob helped found the FUMP (The Funny Music Project), which is a website based around an innovative method of selling music online. The FUMP allows filk artists a place to test out new music while rewarding those who most contribute to the overall success of the site. By allowing users to easily connect with the musicians through unprecedented levels of free access to the music it shows that people really will support musicians when they feel a strong connection. It also helps that the stuff on the site is just really funny.

Rob then set out on his real secret evil plan–to create a webcomic that would grab it’s readers and never let go: Erfworld. Starting out as a second comic on the Order of the Stick website, Rob had a lot to prove. The amazing fact that Rob has gained exceptional levels of “Tool” subscriptions (people who are willing to pay a monthly or yearly fee to gain access to extra content on his site) shows how well he’s succeeding on his plan to dominate every area of online media. When you get written up in Time magazine (as one of the top 10 graphic novels of 2007), you know you’ve hit your stride.

And lastly, I only need to mention his well known con moniker: Party Rob. Yes, Rob will be bringing the full deal to Intervention–he’s stated his intent to have a party at Intervention that will go down in the history books. We just hope we won’t have too many casualties so enough people will come back for Intervention 2011.
