There is only a few days left before most of the items in my etsy store expire ...Being around Christmas time I will not be re-listing anything for another 3-4 most likely. I'll also be offering A5 B&W signed prints of any of my two panel comics very soon, but more to come on that later!

I am looking forward to having our own place after months of living out of a suitcase, I think it will be much more conducive to doing daily comics and getting more artwork done in general. Also can any one help me with a problem. In Canada I heard of using freezer paper to do stencils on T-Shirts.
