well, that’s a wrap on our book signings for THE BLUEPRINT 2. at least, for now it is. we’re still waiting to schedule one more shop in NY, but news on that will come when we have that solid. thank you SO SO MUCH to the awesome shops that partnered with us to help make the book happen. we won’t make this book a 1-and-done situation, we promise. we’re all working to make sure we can tell OUR stories and bring it to the world.

Need your copy of THE BLUEPRINT 2?

we’re currently trying to create an online shop to sell THE BLUEPRINT 2 easily. in the meantime, if you need a copy, contact any of us in the studio directly – Jerry “TheFranchize”Gaylord, Penelope “Peng-Peng” Gaylord, or Bryan “Flash” Turner – and we’ll be sure to hook you up with it.


head on over to any one of these awesome comic shops and they will have copies of the book!

Blog Update, the blueprint 2

end of 2016 recap


first off, HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYBODY! hope everyone had a happy holidays and a safe start to 2017. sorry we haven’t updated this page in a few months. as usual, the end of the year we get really swept up in the holidays. we make up for all the time we’re away at conventions and we spend as much time as we can with family during the holidays. and that’s on top of just regular work on freelance projects as well as personal. so just a quick recap of what we weren’t able to post after we got back from New York Comic Con.

we spent the rest of october and into november preparing for CTN Expo, the animation convention out in Burbank, CA. it’s a really big trip for us since we’re coming all the way from Maryland so we make sure we bring our A-game when we go. we each made new sketchbooks to show and sell at our table. we even got to meet and chat with animation legend Leo D. Sullivan.

we also made a little mini preview of our kickstarter book “The Blueprint 2” to show studios and pitch ideas. and just in time for it, we got our 1 advance copy of the actual book before going to the show, so we brought that for folks to flip thru. we had a lot of great and positive feedback so we’re excited to bring it with us to conventions this year. here’s a little flip-thru of the advance copy.

afterwards, the holidays were in full effect. we were working on projects but spent a lot of time with family. however, we did manage to get our stickers back for our kickstarter backers! the rest of them we will be bringing to comic conventions to sell at our tables! we also placed our orders for the pins that are part of the kickstarter as well. those are being made as we speak and hopefully in our hands before the month is out.

we also teamed up with an awesome comic shop in Ashburn, VA called Comic Logic VA to do one of their Drink & Draw events. Jerry & Flash taught the group how to draw Superman and Poison Ivy. Peng drew an exclusive pinup for the shop featuring those characters plus one of the shop owners as baby Groot.

other than that, we’ve been busy drawing and we’re looking forward to bringing more IDSTUDIOS art into more people’s hands! and it starts with these BLUEPRINT 2 books!!!

FCBD 2016


Free Comic Book Day is fast approaching! May 7th is the day after the newest Captain America:Civil War release and there’s nothing better than celebrating comics to keep the rush high. Penelope “Peng-Peng” Gaylord will be representing the studio that day and celebrating it with Third Eye Comics in Annapolis, MD. it’s honestly one of THE best comic shops in the area, dare i say even on the whole East Coast. the shop always brings out guests, have a great sale happening, and even a super cool vendor or two for their “Third-Eye Faithfuls”. it also marks their anniversary so we were more than happy to be asked to be a part of the festivities.


Jerry and Bryan both have separate prior commitments that day so unfortunately they will not be able to make it out. Peng-Peng will be holding down the fort that day. so look out for this banner (and her) in the Guest Tent! she’ll have her prints, large and small, as well as her new stickers for purchase. the shop will also have some comic titles that she has worked on available to buy! and if she hasn’t lost her head in prepping for the event, she may even bring some free comics to give away. cuz what’s a FREE COMIC BOOK DAY without some FREE COMICS!
