ABCDEFGeek Vol. 1 Poster by OtisFrampton

All 26 letters in Volume 1 of my "ABCDEFGeek" alphabet series are now available as a poster, for sale at my Society6 store!

Here is the link to the poster: society6.com/OtisFrampton/ABCD…

Go here to see my "ABCDEFGeek" Vol. 1 gallery here on deviantART: otisframpton.deviantart.com/ga…

This collected edition of "ABCDEFGeek" was designed for the larger sized prints (16" x 24" or 24" x 36"). Any of the smaller prints will make it hard to read some of the dialogue balloons on the individual letter entries. So keep that in mind when you order this print!

Thanks for looking. And if you order one of these, I hope you enjoy it. :)

I've decided to change the way I sell prints, books and comics online.

You can now buy art prints at my Society6 store. I will be adding more products here soon, including t-shirts, iPhone cases and totes. All of the prints sold online with my artwork will now be printed and shipped via Society6.com. Because of this change I will now offer many different size options as well as framed prints. I will also be offering artwork as prints that I have never before sold!  I will no longer print and ship prints myself, although I will still sell prints from my own inventory at comic conventions and store appearances.

And you can now buy books, comics and original artwork exclusively at my Bigcartel store. I often do warm-up sketches and sell them at Bigcartel. The best way to find out when I am selling new sketches is to follow me on Instagram or Twitter.

So check out my online stores for new products. Thanks!

Last night I got one of the thrills of my life when I got to meet Weird Al Yankovic backstage after his show here in Minneapolis! I've been an Al fan since I first heard the "Weird Al" In 3-D album in 1984 and I've been a big fan ever since. I only have two artists' full libraries on my iPhone, The Beatles and Al. So yeah, I'm a fan.

Not only did I get to see him perform live (my fifth time seeing him), but I got to give him and his drummer Jon "Bermuda" Schwartz copies of my "Meeting Al" piece:

Meeting Al by OtisFrampton

Both Al and Jon were awesome and I can't thank them enough for allowing me and my friend Natalie to meet them. I want to say a special thanks to Jon, who could not have been kinder or friendlier, for responding to Natalie's e-mail about possibly meeting the king of parody. Jon suprised me by saying "he doesn't know you're here, he's gonna love this". I was really honored to be able to give them both print copies of my piece.

Just before Jon snapped a photo of the three of us Al turned to me and told me I should send my piece to someone at Gallery 1988, where he had just done a show. "Your work is as good as anything I saw there", he said. I remember nothing after that. Just white noise. Those words will be burned in my brain forever.

Al and Jon were kind enough to chat with Natalie and I for a few minutes while other meet-and-greeters waited and I can't thank them enough for making the experience a memorable one.

What a great night.

Here are Natalie and I before the show. Me with my print and Natalie dressed as the "dental hygienist with a spatula tattooed on her arm" from "The Weird Al Show Theme":

The only photo I took during the show. This was during their encore, while they performed "The Saga Begins" with members of the 501st in costume on stage with them:

The backstage pass:

Jon "Bermuda" Schwartz, Al's drummer (he's been with Al since the beginning) and all around nice guy:

Meeting Al!

Here's Al signing copies of my "Meeting Al" print for me and Natalie.

Thanks again to Al & Jon and thanks to you for reading!

There are just three days left to the "Oddly Normal 2.0" Kickstarter campaign! I can't believe how fast the clock has run down. It really does feel like I was nervously launching this project yesterday.

I'd like to make one final push to get the word out about the campaign. I would ask everyone to please post a link to the project page on their Twitter, Facebook or blog pages: www.kickstarter.com/projects/o…

Obviously I've already reached and exceeded my goal. I'm thrilled beyond words about that!  But I'd love to get as many books into people's hands as possible.... and remember, if you pledge $25.00 or more you get a special printed copy of the final book!

Thanks in advance for spreading the word!

One last thing...on Tuesday (the last day of the campaign) at 9:00AM CST, I'll be doing a 3 hour webcast to count down the final hours. I'll be finishing the poster I've been working on and maybe showing off some roughs for new pages. I hope to see some of you in the Ustream chat room: www.ustream.tv/channel/otis-fr…

Thanks for everything, folks. This has been a great experience for me and I can't wait to start showing off my work on the new book!

Well, I was saddened to see that one of the bigger pledges was canceled this past week, but I understand that circumstances can change and I appreciate the thought behind the initial offering. But...thanks to other very generous pledges, the total amount has still gone UP!

With just one week left in the "Oddly Normal 2.0" campaign, the total amount pledged is $7704.00!:

otf4com

Thanks so much to Rich, Stu, Alison, John and Riaz  for their generous pledges!

Thanks also to David for increasing his pledge amount!

And remember, if you have pledged less than $25, you have one week left to increase your pledge to get the book as a reward. There are currently 33 backers who can do this, just FYI. :)

I'll be doing some sketching for the project (working on the poster Kickstarter reward) live on my webcast tomorrow night (Wedneday) at 8PM CST: www.ustream.tv/channel/otis-fr… If you have questions about the project or just want to see me sketch characters from the book, I'll be LIVE from 8PM-9PM. Hope to see you there!

I worked on the poster reward last week on my webcast. You can watch video of it here: www.ustream.tv/recorded/201615…

Thanks again and as always, if you like this project, please share a link to the Kickstarter page via Facebook, Twitter, etc!

A couple of moths ago I posted some Big Bang Theory artwork that was meant to be used in a series of a local TV spots. Unfortunately, the series of ads got canceled, but not before two of them were completed. I have been given permission to show them off online as part of my own promotion.

The two spots feature these images:

Hello, again. I've decided to only do updates about the current pledge total every Monday from this point on.

Here's the current total:

otf4com

Many thanks to our newest backers . . . Tim, Jeremie, Daniel, Dan, Ben, Shervyn, Ryan, Lisa, Miroatme, Christoph, Coolb, Ong, Jessica, Shannon, James, Rachel, Danielle, Daniel, sgllama, Susan, Kathryn, Zabuni, Matt and Stephen!

And thanks to Jimi for increasing his pledge to take advantage of the new reward!

Since hitting the $6000.00 level, the most popular reward option by far has been the $25.00 level, which means that people are interested in owning a copy of the book. And that's great! I hope to get as many copies out there as possible to Kickstarter backers.

Don't forget to join me on my Tuesday night "Oddly Normal 2.0" webcasts at 8PM CST: www.ustream.tv/channel/otis-fr… If you have questions about the project or just want to see me sketch characters from the book, I'll be LIVE from 8PM-9PM. Hope to see you there!

The pledges reached and passed $6000.00 today, which means that everyone who pledged $25 or more will get a copy of the final book in printed form featuring a special alternate cover!

otf4com

Thanks go out to Rhonda, Todd, Brian, Arul, Fergus, Jason, James, Tim, Dan and Dominic for their generous pledges.  Thanks also to Chris and Matthew for raising their original pledge amounts. You all put the campaign over the top and allowed for the unlockable reward options to go into effect!

There will be no more unlockable rewards from this point on. As I said before, all funding above and beyond the original $5000 goal would go to printing copies of the book as well as helping to fund other rewards.

Thanks again to everyone who pledged to support "Oddly Normal 2.0"! Go here to read all about the campaign: www.kickstarter.com/projects/o…

The "Oddly Normal 2.0" Kickstarter campaign has been fully funded in just one week! www.kickstarter.com/projects/o…

Thanks go out to coffinail, BKramer, Dave, Tim, Kirsten, Brad, Leandro (for raising his pledge!), Molly, Jussi, Thanun, Jamie for their generous pledges, taking the project past the original funding goal!

otf4com

And thanks once again to all of my friends, family and well wishers who supported this project with contributions. Your kindness will allow me to take time away from commission and freelance work to bring Oddly Normal back to life.

But . . .

There are still 36 days left in this campaign! I honestly thought that the Kickstarter pledge drive would be a nail-biter, one that would only achieve full funding in the last days. And that's one reason why I chose a 45 day window for the project. But you have all blown my expectations out of the water.

That's why, as I said in an earlier update, that new funding goals, with the intention of paying for a print run of the final book to be used as Kickstarter rewards would go into effect after the original goal of $5000 was reached.

And here we are, so true to my word, the new goal of $6000 has gone into effect. If $5500 or more is pledged by February 15th, everyone who pledged $50 or more will get a copy of the final book. And if $6000 or more is pledged by February 15th, everyone who pledged $25 or more will get a copy of the final book. Just to be clear . . . the final book will be in addition to the original rewards, not in place of them!

My goal has been met; I will now have time to work on the book. Now it's time to raise money toward improving the reward packages for all of you who chose to support this project (and for those who choose to contribute between now and February 14th).

Thank you all so much.

Okay, as I said in previous updates, I've been thinking about how to expand the reward options now that it looks like I may reach my original goal of raising $5000.00 in pledges.

My primary goal in starting the "Oddly Normal 2.0" Kickstarter campaign was to raise money to allow me to take time off from freelance jobs to work on a new Oddly book. But I honestly thought that if I achieved that goal it would most likely be by the skin of my teeth and via many, many small donations. Instead, it looks like I'll hit the target early and with a few large donations.

That being said, if the pledges go above and beyond the $5000.00 goal during the next 39 days, I would like to use the money to do a print-on-demand run of the finished book for certain pledge levels.

Here's a breakdown of what I had in mind:

    If the campaign raises $5500.00 or more, everyone who pledged $50.00 or more will receive a signed copy of the final book with a special alternate cover (as opposed the the cover that will be used for the published version with original line art given to the person who pledged $2000.00).
    And if the campaign raises $6000.00 or more, everyone who pledged $25.00 or more will receive a signed copy of the final book with a special alternate cover (as opposed the the cover that will be used for the published version with original line art given to the person who pledged $2000.00).

I would most likely print the book through ka-blam.com , a print-on-demand service I have used before. The book would be full color, manga-sized and , as stated above, with a special cover that will be used only for this version of the book.

If these "unlockable reward" levels are reached, I will no longer be creating a special printing of the first two chapters (which is the current reward for the $200 and above levels). That reward would be nullified in favor of the complete book.

I think that if I can reach those pledge totals and begin offering copies of the final book, I will be able to raise even more money in pledges, which will help to pay for the cost of rewards at all levels and give me even more time to work on the book.

I'd love to hear your thoughts on these potential unlockable rewards. Please leave a comment or send me a message on the Kickstarter campaign page: www.kickstarter.com/projects/o…

Thanks for reading.

I really didn't plan to make this many updates regarding funding totals because frankly I didn't think I'd be this far until the very end of the campaign, but . . .

After only 3 days, the "Oddly Normal 2.0" Kickstarter campaign is 80% funded with a total amount of $4015.00 in pledges!

otf4com

Big thanks go out to Ronn, Matthew, James, Manuel, Leandro, Ingrid, Dani, John, Ryan, Cynthia, Jeff, Brian, M.D., Matthew, Martha, Tivi, Paul, Sara, Stephen, Patrick, Karen, Michael, Ryan, Thomas and George for their generous pledges!

Thanks also go out to the staff of Kickstarter.com . . . yesterday they made the "Oddly Normal 2.0" campaign a "Staff Pick" and today the project was featured on the main page! I really appreciate the exposure this has given the campaign!

As I near my funding goal so early in the campaign (41 days to go), I've started to consider the possibility of exceeding my expectations and raising more funds than I anticipated. I'll have more information if/when the project gets to that point, but just know that it I raise more money that I intended that I will add or modify reward options to reflect it.

Go here to visit my Kickstarter page and read all about the project: www.kickstarter.com/projects/o…

Thanks, everyone!
