ID Comics Studios will be launching its first KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN on JULY 11, 2016 – and we want u to join us for the party! use this hashtag #IDBLUEPRINT2 to spread the word!! the kickstarter will be for an anthology book of short stories – all illustrated by the 3 studio members Jerry Gaylord, Bryan K Turner, and Penelope R. Gaylord. we will be working with some great writer friends – Kenny Groom and Jeffrey & Susan Bridges – to give these stories the fun, strong backbones that they need. we’ll have some great rewards for those that are willing to support the project with us to make this nearly decade-long dream become reality!

We’ve created a Facebook Invite to remind folks of the Kickstarter’s launch date – July 11, 2016. head on over to the ID FACEBOOK PAGE to accept the invite as well as see behind-the-scenes art that we’ll be posting throughout the campaign. wear ur party shirts, kids, cuz it’s gonna be fun times!

1st kickstarter announcement

we’re going to be launching a studio kickstarter finally with some of our stories that we’ve had floating in our brains since we started this studio like 10 years ago! phew!! we’ve been bustin our collective behinds breaking into the comics industry and recently the animation industry, all from an area where neither of those things are commonly found. and now we’re finally able to revisit our creator-owned ideas & stories with all the knowledge we’ve learned since we started this ride. the kickstarter is going to an anthology of a few short stories that will later be turned into a bigger story. more info will come as we get closer to launching it in JULY.¬†keep an eye on our ID FACEBOOK PAGEfacebook.com/IdentityComicsStudio¬† for more current info on that!

this weekend, Jerry & Penelope Gaylord are going to be guests again at Twin Tiers Comic Con in Elmira, NY! everyone just makes this show great so we’re always looking forward to it every year. the people that run it are super nice, the folks that attend are even nicer still. after San Diego, we had to restock a few of our prints so we’ll have them for this con! we will also be bringing any Bill and Ted’s Most Triumphant Return books we have, including the most recent and last issue that came out on Wednesday Aug. 12th! and as always, we will be doing sketches at the con.

this year they have a new after party with some Drink & Draw fun. all the money from the art sold will go to Heroes Initiative. we’ll be there to draw some fun stuff so if you’re planning on attending, try to come to the party! it’s free to get in so there’s little reason not to (unless you’re under 21, which means u can’t). get more info about the event on the T2C2 Facebook Page!

well, we’ve survived our first time setting up at San Diego Comic Con’s artist alley last month. some of us came home with the con flu, so we had to take some time to recuperate. but now we’re all back in the full swing of work and new opportunities and our pictures from the show are finally posted up on our ID STUDIOS FACEBOOK PAGE!

these are the commissions that we each did at the show. to see all of our pictures, u can follow this link – https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.467904156702443.1073741862.113793732113489&type=1&l=5a4c9e1c45

we had an amazing time there! it was probably the most tiresome con we’ve ever done, not just during the show but including all the prep we did before we even went out there! but we met some great new people, made some cool new friends, and of course we left with some cool fun stuff that only SDCC can give ya! i hope this won’t be the last time we exhibit because it was just an awesome experience. HUGE THANK YOU to everybody that came by each of our tables and showed us some love. next year hopefully we’ll have tons of new things to show you guys!
