Happy Holidays! Items in the Store.

November 24th, 2012 | Permalink

With the holiday season officially in gear, I wanted to let you guys know about some neat items in my web store! If you’re looking for a unique gift, may I suggest a page of original comic art from my books–signed, sealed, and ready for framing!

I’ve got hundreds of original pages of artwork from the BSC Graphix series available. Each page is on 11″ x 14″ Bristol board, created with blue colored pencil, graphite pencil, and India ink. Each page will be signed. If you’d like me to write anything extra, like a dedication or a “To…”, please let me know. I ship all pages flat, packed in cardboard, via Ground rate. (And yes, I take international orders!) I only accept PayPal for payments. You must submit your order by December 14, 2012 in order to ship in time for Christmas.

You have two options for page purchases:


Specially-priced, NON-REQUEST pages.
You get to choose the book, but I get to choose the page – for a flat rate of $30 USD, plus shipping. These are still full-sized, published, original pages of art. It might not be your favorite page, or the most exciting page. It might not have all of the main characters on it (but I promise it will have at least one!). But since you get to choose which book your page comes from, you get to narrow down your options a tiny bit! Either way, it’s a surprise! These are quick and easy to purchase, using the PayPal button below.

Specially-priced, Non-Request Pages – $30 USD, Plus shipping:

From which book?


If you’re interested in a specific page, you can email me directly ( with your request. Typically, these pages range from $50 – $150 (most are in the $60 – $80 range). If the page is still available, I will let you know the price. Discounts always given if you buy two pages or more! I accept payments via PayPal.

Please note that I am NOT selling pages from Smile or Drama. The only pages available at this time are those included in The Baby-sitters Club graphic novels: Kristy’s Great Idea, The Truth About Stacey, Mary Anne Saves the Day, and Claudia and Mean Janine. Thank you!

For every page of art sold through my website, I will make a $5 donation to First Book, which provides brand new books to children in need. On all page orders made between now and December 14, I will also donate $5 to the Red Cross in support of Hurricane Sandy victims.

And don’t forget, I have SMILE t-shirts available in the store as well!

Hope you all have a happy, healthy, safe and warm holiday season!
