I know this is kinda random. But, this is all I could think about during the Christmas gig this year. I had to cover a lot of the percussion parts since it was just me and a drum set player covering the percussion parts. Woot!
Hey everyone, due to the incredibly icy weather here in Texas, there was a small delay in some of the orders being shipped out from the Odd Quartet store. Today, I am glad to say that we are caught up on the orders that were placed over the icy weekend and everything is running smoothly again. Yay! (If you haven’t received a confirmation email from the store yet, let us know at email@example.com so we can check on your order).
In case you haven’t visited the Odd Quartet store yet to get your favorite musician an awesome gift this year, BEWARE! Certain designs and sizes are selling out fast, so hit the link to check it out before they’re all gone!
Hey Everyone! Here’s the brand new art vlog for this week. I had the “camera” rolling while I worked on the “Worlds Collide” strip. While I was drawing this I remembered why I always draw people in t-shirts…because formal wear has so many more lines to draw. But, complaining aside, it was good practice and I have some new ideas the next time I have to draw formal wear.
Hey everyone, I have started an art vlog! I have been recording one of the comics each week while I work on it in photoshop, then speed it up so you can see the entire process, from sketch to strip, in about four minutes time. It’s been a lot of fun recording these for you. If you want to see more videos, check out the Odd Quartet channel on YouTube – don’t forget to SUBSCRIBE! Here is the latest video. I hope you like it!
The store has been updated for the new items that are now available! We have THREE new items for you to check out in the Odd Quartet Store: the VOLUME t-shirt, the Stretching for Musicians poster, and the French Horn poster. The thumbnails are below and there are LARGER versions to check out in the Store. Thank you for your continued support, and thank you for helping me make art for a living.
First of all, thank you to everyone who stopped by the booth! It was an amazing experience to meet all of you. Without you, Odd Quartet would not be what it is today. I feel like the best part about any convention is getting to talk to you, the readers. Check out some of the pictures from the exhibit hall and the full run down of the show below. Thanks!

What an amazing week! It started by road tripping it down to San Antonio to set up for the convention and it ended with me almost getting stuck there because my car battery died.
One of the highlights of the convention was getting to meet Brent Becker – he is the artist/designer behind Stanbury uniforms. We got a chance to talk shop before the exhibit hall opened one morning. It was interesting to hear about his design process and how he made the transition from traditional media (paper/ink) to digital. If you get a chance, check out his gallery on Deviant Art.
The exhibit hall was an eclectic mix of music publishers, instrument makers, fundraisers, and others. My booth was right next to a candied peanut fundraiser company (I ended up going home with two bags).
Thanks again to everyone who came out to the show, I hope to see you again next year! A big thank you to my friends Scot and Jeremy. Without those guys, the booth would still be sitting in a garage somewhere and I would still be stuck in San Antonio. Our sharp-eyed readers might notice some items at the booth that are not in the store yet. No worries, all of the new designs will be available online soon!
