As part of the marketing campaign and an effort to get some fans to help me create buzz for this independent comic project, we thought it would be necessary to create a Facebook page. We are hoping that this page will allow this to be spread farther out by the fans anticipating the book, and they in turn will tell their friends about it! We are hoping that this works, and before this post had been made, The Seven page already has about 7 fans! So it looks promising, especially if those 7 friends tell 7 other friends, and then those 7 tell another seven, and then... Well you get the message. Please take some time and follow us here and on the Facebook page, and help us spread the word!

We have decided to do regular updates every 7 days to keep with the Seven theme here. So you will get many updates throughout the creation of this book. Some sooner than others depending on the situation. Talk to you soon Moonwatchers!

WonderCon 2011 - COMPLETE

This past weekend was simply amazing! I had so much fun sitting and getting to know people. It's amazing the amount of people out there that are potential fans of your work. While there we worked really hard to sell White Ninja Guy: One Shot, and I would say that on Sunday, that was the day I sold the most copies. So for all of you new Moonwatchers out there! The new White Ninja Guy #1 is coming out in June

I am very excited about it, and I think the introduction of White Ninja Guy at WonderCon was amazing. I think if I play my cards right I would see more folds. I was also able to sell a lot of my artbook.

Talk to you soon
Ian W.

WonderCon Artist Alley Location!

My WonderCon Artist Alley Location this year will be AA-143! It's official folks. I will be at the Con in name only, but will be promoting a lot of Obsidian Studios stuff there at the show. People can get their hands on White Ninja Guy: One Shot, which will be debuting the official and public introduction to Obsidians' flagship character White Ninja Guy. This book will be signed by me, and limited to a FINAL 50 copies! After this Con is over, and the issues are all sold, I will no longer be selling this comic! Also at this con, I will be selling copies of my 2010 sketchbook; Introducing: The Sketches of Ian Walker. I am looking forward to this event and getting hard copies of my publications out there to you all.

Also along with my original art pieces, I will be selling pre-made sketchcards, fan art prints, and other promotional materials related to future Obsidian Studios projects. April is going to be an exciting month in general, and I can't wait to get out there and let folks see it all! Can't wait to see and meet you all! Talk with you soon at the show!

Conversate with me folks, let me know what is on your minds. Especially as a consumer. Thanks much!

Changes... For the good!

It has been a minute since I have updated my page. But I felt that it would be a good idea to give a quick low down on what is going on behind the scenes within Obsidian Studios, and what our plans are. So sit down a bit and have a nice read.

I am pleased to announce once again that I will have a table at WonderCon 2011. I will be going as Ian Walker's Obsidian Studios, and will be in the Artists Alley. I decided not to go representing the studio because I wanted to first take a look at the convention scene and know what it is about and what to expect as a future small press vendor the next year. And also with that experience I decided that I wanted to push out only one title right now for exposure so that folks will know who we are. The title that I will be putting out at the convention will be White Ninja Guy.

The #0 issue of White Ninja Guy is out right now and is available for sale. At the convention, I will be selling copies of this for only $1! Real cheap! Along with that, the very first official issue of White Ninja Guy #1 will be released as well. It is the first of a 6 part story arc that I am developing for the character. With that said, I am going to talk about the development of the studio as a whole. I recently just got a full time job, and it has tapped my time and resources to the extreme. I barely have time to do the projects that I am doing now, and I definitely don't have the time to pursue the others. So I have decided that it would be best to simply concentrate only on 2 projects that will be out this year. Those being (tenatively titled) The Seven, and the White Ninja Guy series. After these are done, then I will take the time to work on the other projects that I would like to be able to put quality effort and time into, and do them correctly. There are many stories and ideas that I want to tell, and I will get to them in time. But now, I want to focus on these two and do them right.

So 2011 will be the year for The Seven and the White Ninja Guy, and I can't wait to introduce you all to them very soon. Obsidian Studios writer Ricky Burnett is also on the ticket as the writer of The Seven, and another writer who has not yet been made official will be working on the next Obsidian title once Seven is completed.
As far as the website, and art blog are concerned, I will be working hard to put out new sneak peek information, news and artwork as time goes on to hopefully wet your appetites and anticipation for these titles. We have worked extremely hard to bring you good stories and work, and we plan to deliver. So please continue to bear with us, and support us. We are doing all we can to make our dream of going to WonderCon a reality so anyway that you can support us would be greatly appreciated! Have questions? Please do not hesitate to ask!

So until next time Moonwatchers!
