New Comic and an Update About Our Patreon

Hey, Team!
Rowyn here with some fun news!
We’re revamping the Patreon a bit for 2018, (by the way, we HAVE a Patreon for those who didn’t know!) and using it to concentrate more on upcoming projects.
In order to do that, that means our “behind the scenes” will be on lower tiers, so more people can enjoy them!  We’ll also be simplifying the tiers in order to do that, which will be good all around.
This ALSO means that for a while, the Patreon will be all about Boop in the Night, which is a family friendly comic Rob and I are collaborating on. 
It’s the story of a little girl and her monster-from-under-the-bed.
We’ll show you all the character sketches as they are developed, and you’ll see the finished comics posted here before they go to LineToon/WebToon.
As an example, you can see some back and forth between the two of us about the monster, Icabod:
He goes by Icky.
You’ll also get a chance to help us decide what else the characters should be doing!  We’ll have a vote now and then when we’re stuck on which we should do next.  This will also include votes on what kinds of monsters we should see in the comic!  After all, Icky isn’t all alone, is he?
Rock on,

Upcoming Year Events

Hey, Team!

It’s the first big snow storm of the year here.  Rob and I have been bundled up inside all day, in an attempt to hide from any looming fevers. 

We’ve also been going over our convention schedule this year!

(Huh.  I’ve got a fleye face-planting in both posts so far.  Whelp!  Guess it’s gonna be that kind of year.)

As a rule, Rob tends to avoid scheduling us for events that happen out of state during the coldest Winter months.  This is to avoid getting snowed in and missing said events, and…  Well, I’m basically an indoor cat as a person, so I’m not a fan of the cold in general.

Last year, we traveled to nine different states for a total of twenty conventions and events!

This year, we’re slated for seven so far.  This includes an event in my home town, where Team Manticore’s first children’s book will be read.  My father will be visiting for that, and he’ll be the one reading the book in honor of my late mother.  I’m as excited for that as I am nervous.  Selling stuffed animals is much less emotionally taxing. 

Our hope is to do more horror conventions, as well as events created specifically with indie comics and books in mind.

As an example, we’ll be at Dark Side of the Con in New Jersey come March!

If you have an event you’d like us to attend, please let us know by commenting/messaging us.  Even better?  Let the event coordinators know you’d like us to visit too!

We’ll let you know specific details on the Events page of www.teammanticore.com as we get them, so keep a look out.

Rock on,

New Year and New Blog

Hey Team!

Welcome to the Manti-Blog, (unless we figure out a better title for it…) where Rob and I will be sharing news about projects, upcoming events, peeks behind the scenes, fun videos, Let’s Plays, tutorials, speed paints, funny shorts, and lots of other exciting stuff!

We’re kicking off this new year of 2018 with solid goals and a fresh take on life/business/marriage/everything.

This includes revamping/adding new things to the store too!

OH!  We’ve still got our Patreon if you’re looking for behind-the-scenes before anyone else gets to see them, and some other special offers,
as well as a brand new Ko-Fi, if you don’t want the commitment of a monthly thing.  Ko-Fi is basically a tip jar, and it lets us have more resources to make more stuff!

Rob and I are so happy you’re here with us on this journey.

 

Here’s to the new year!
Rock on,

-Rowyn
