Got a comic and some announcements today.
Growing Staff, New Columns, and Fan Art:
I have brought on board a co-editor/writer and he will be writing here a few times a week. We’re still discussing column ideas but we are going to have a dedicated book column on Tuesdays, I will still be doing book reviews on Mondays whenever I don’t have another mystery lined up. We are talking about doing a Saturday column for poetry and short stories and such.
I am still looking for writers, content editors, etc. If you’re interested feel free to contact us and let us know why you feel like you’d be a good addition to the obop team.
Speaking of contacting us, if you follow my instagram (@fin.louie) you’ll have seen I got my first pieces of fan art!
This has inspired me to start a fan art page. If you would like to send me any fan art, feel free! We love getting stuff like this over here! I got these pieces a solid three weeks ago and I’m STILL buzzin’!
Coming Back to St Louis:
I’ve had my old job offered back to me and a place to stay in St Louis which, being a hobo, I had to follow the work. I was originally planning to fly to San Francisco for the summer, but not this year.
Speaking of work, I have always had plenty of ideas for the blog, not only how to entertain you in a variety of unique ways, but also help expand my audience base. I’m going to be making stickers and business cards this summer and leaving them around town. If you find one, take a picture and tag me on instagram (@fin.louie), twitter (@offbeatonpoint), or facebook (offbeat on-point page) and who knows? I might send you stickers or other swag.
Branching Out into Podcasts/Youtube
I’m planning to make a podcast radio show either in tandem with Rewind Wednesday or in addition to it, either way I won’t entirely drop Wednesday. Also I’d like to get some interviews on skype or something to upload for youtube, like for a band, or a local artist, or what have you. Speaking of youtube, I’ve been thinking about trying to make a Fin & Louie animated short. I have never done animation before but then again I haven’t done a lot of the things I’m doing before.
Tune in Monday for even more future speculation!
