The Bolt Part 2, you need to buy it!

The Bolt Part 2 just launched on Kickstarter and I’m so excited! Many of y’all have been asking me if I’ll ever have more Bolt Yo-Yos in stock and this is the final result. An updated version of a classic yo-yo.

What’s a Bolt?

For those of you who aren’t familiar with the Bolt, it was a signature yo-yo I made with the folks at YoYoJam 16 or 17 years ago. It was well loved by modders and had a great shape and feel that many newer yo-yos lack. YYJ has closed their business, so I teamed up with my buddy Hadrien and the folks at C3 Yo-Yo Design to make something that felt new and old-school at the same time.

I’ve either made the greatest yo-yo video of all time… or the worst.

Let me know what you think in the comments below.


How to make mini-comics, my guide to cutting and folding an 8 page zine.

I love making comics and teaching others how to make their own. Lately, this experience has been so gratifying that I’ve decided to step it up a notch with workshops and tutorials.

The easiest way to get started is with my guide “How To Make a Mini-Comic” freely downloadable which you can print it at home and fold it yourself.

It’s copyright-free so you can print it out and distribute it however you wish. It started off as part of my Make 100 Sets of Mini-Comics challenge.

If you try it out and decide to make some on your own, I’d love to see them! I’m @docpop on Twitter and Instagram. If you are willing to help translate them, I’d love that too!

Want some encouragement? Here’s my friend Audrey talking about her first mini-comic:

And here’s some more from a recent workshop in Chicago:

If you’d like to run a workshop yourself, hit me up. I’m in SF, but might be able to send you prints (if the shipping isn’t too expensive).

This project ends in just 2 days. Please help spread the word so we can reach the goal. Thanks!


New Kickstarter launched: Make 100 Risographed Mini-Comics

For 2017’s 24 Hour Comic Day I decided to make 8 mini-comics, instead of one 24 page comic. The project turned out so well that I’ve launched a Kickstarter to make a limited run of all 8 comics as a set. The project has already been selected as one of Kickstarter’s “Projects We Love” and will be included in their list of Make 100 projects throughout January.

The final prints will be made on a vintage Risograph printer and only 100 sets will be made (plus any extras from the $32 level). Please check it out and consider helping support the project.
