Before you make up your mind on a presidential candidate, you MUST read this. It's THAT important, our #1 bipartisan issue. http://ow.ly/ZdI9l
The best way to determine what a candidate will actually do vs. what they SAY, is to #FollowTheMoney .... who is funding them? What do these donors want in return? Because if you think they're just funding them for the fun of it, you're far too naive.
Young people are the good news of 2016. They see the stressful realities of American life more clearly than their elders and are rallying around the straight talk of Bernie Sanders. Meanwhile, the big hitters back in Washington politics are working on an ugly surprise not just for the kids but for all of us — another monster tax break for US multinational corporations.

Amazing self caricature, Dawn!  These days, all my self caricatures turn out to be an ugly ol' bald headed man!

Still waiting to apply for a few more, but this is essentially my 2016 Convention Tour List! http://dawngriffinstudios.com/about/appearances/
PRE-ORDER a Commission! To save yourself time, feel free to order a commission from Dawn before one of her appearances! That way, you’ll just have to swing by her table and pick it up! Keep in mind Dawn needs at least a week to finish your commission, so give her plenty of time to get your piece done. 2016 Schedule Find Dawn selling her books, comics, figurines, buttons, commissions and T-shirts at your ...

Curious how I did on my 2015 comic con tour? Fear not, I've brought you the 3rd edition of my Comic Con Report Card: http://ow.ly/XkDtH
Have you started mapping out your convention schedule yet for this year? I've been frantically booking tables, Air BnB rentals, texting/emailing friends about new shows until… they aren't my friends anymore, and over-analyzing which shows I should skip and which I should attend.

My POTM isn't exactly groundbreaking, but will be an interesting comic to follow for the next, oh, 9 months. #Politics 
 
The POTM for March is live! Unless you live under a rock, you'll know it. Let's say it TRUMPS all other webcomics. http://ow.ly/Z3o7t
This Pick of the Month shouldn't be breaking news to anyone not under a rock (which is plausible… sometimes a self-imposed rock is necessary for cartoonin' production, no?). But, yes, Berkeley Breathed is back in action behind the Bloom County helm. And if you've peeked out from that rock at any ...

*NEW PRINTS FOR THE 2016 CONVENTION TOUR*
An Ode to Being an ‪#‎80sKid‬! All of my ‪#‎Inktober‬ drawings assembled as prints with an apt 80’s color palette!
AND YOU CAN GET THESE FOR FREE! SEE BELOW:
*Dawns Ethical Experiment of 2016*
Instead of earning money off of others’ copyrighted characters, I want to instead use my fandom to attract new potential comic readers to my table as an icebreaker! Then, if they buy a book, they receive a FREE PRINT of choice! Just think: for $5 more you get the print AND a book! Even if my comics aren’t your thing, they make great gifts or even a donation to a library or school! It’s really a win-win, people.

*TODAY I MADE A DIFFERENCE!**
I'm the type of person who would rather make the effort to enact change, rather than sit around and complain about the same things. Today I did that in regards to the corruption in politics and big money interests in campaign finance, because we luckily live in a country where we can still make our voices heard. I am convinced campaign fiancing is not only the root cause of many of our issues, but is something we can ALL rally around as a BIPARTISAN unifier.
Today, as a volunteer for Wolf PAC, I convinced my representative, Greg Vitali, to cosponsor a Free & Fair Elections resolution. While he was supportive but pessimistic at the beginning of the call, by the end after discussing the roadblocks he deals with all due to money, he was motivated to cosponsor. With his help, along with my senator whom is already a cosponsor, we are SO CLOSE to becoming the 5th state to join the ranks. Just a few more cosponsors are needed!
Want to stop complaining and start DOING SOMETHING? Read up on the plan involving a convention of the states for yourself: http://www.wolf-pac.com/the_plan. It's not that hard to sign a petition, make some calls, talk to your legislators, which I'd like to remind you-- should work for US. It's time to break the chains of big money & get back to "Government of the people, by the people, for the people".
Thank you, Rep. Vitali, for still being able to believe in revolutions.
