Journal Entry: Wed Aug 20, 2008, 2:57 PM

20,000 VIEWS WOW!! Ya know way back when I first got on deviant "thanks to :icontimkelly: " I signed up posted a few things and forgot about it. Came back a month  later I had a little over 200 views and a lot of welcome messages!! Never before had I seen such a an embrace of the "newbie." Pencil Jack was to harsh " to many wanna-be critics" Comic Space to desolate!! Now I know there are those of you who say "criticism is good" but I say not if suck at helping artist improve. . .Example: This is not a critique "Your style is to cartoony" That is an opinion "in which your entitled" but not information I can you to advance my "specific" style. Deviant artist seem to get it!! If a certain watcher likes your style she/he says so but if not no big deal. Other sites patrons seem to go out of their to bash any thing that doesn't fit into there narrow view of what they call good. Now don't get me wrong I'm not in this infantile mind set of not hearing anything "bad" about my art. . .Trust me I hear plenty. . .I would say to any artist out there feeling down learn to weed out opinions "you suck" from technical fact "that girl has 2 left breast!?" Bottom-line DEVIANT ROCKS!!!

Big THANKS to :iconronnie1996: for ordering these three commissions Old School Avengers by Thuddleston Yellow Jacket-Ultron-Wasp by Thuddleston Tigra by Thuddleston
They where the spark that started this whole thing. She probably didn't know it, but she had help lift me out of one the darkest places I had ever been in. I was going through some issues a the job I had at the time and was contemplating quiting starting my own business. I had read tons of business books and I really didn't think I could make a living from comics books alone "I got a wife and 3 kids." She cause me to realize the "business" was right under my nose the whole time!! Commission art!! So thanks for every thing!!

Just in case you guy/girls wanted to know, I draw these images up to print as posters that, I in-turn sell as fan-art at conventions across America!! I also do commission art at these shows as well. It's a really fun occupation full of ups and downs. I would not have been able to do it with out good buds like :iconalanschell: and :iconhallspace: helping me out when time get tough!!

Being a fellow independent comic artist myself Heroespress want to extend the benefits of offset printing to as many customers as possible.High Print minimums usually hinder the indi-artist ability to afford high quality offset printing. So at H.P. we offer the "Gang Press" option. Gang Press allow you and others else to combine multiple titles reach the 1000 book minimum Example - Jim wants 300 copies of Giant Battle-Bots - Peter wants 200 copies of Ninja Highway - Lisa wants 500 copies of Zombie Ponies. So 300 + 200 + 500 = 1000 book minimum requirement met. This option is also available to publishers who want to print small amounts of multiple titles. There is a 200 minimum per title when using the "Gang Press" option. This feature also allows print customers get incredible price breaks for large print runs that are not available "with print on demand" digital printing.


Heroes Press offers extra services like, mailers, direct shipping, graphic design, creative consulting, book binding, web design and much more! Check out just a few tesimonials from sastisfied fellow deviants -

"Terry was able to help me out tremendously with a local comic book signing i had. The turn around time on the prints i asked of him was quick and prompt.
The prices were very fair and the quality of the prints was excellent.  i quickly recommended his services to all of our local comic book creators and will definitely used his printing company for future work.
i highly recommend him!"

Jon Kulczar
creator of Wicket and Imp :icon5chmee:

Terry Huddleston is true professional and I enjoyed working with him using his
new printing company to print my mini posters for Xmoor Studios. Not only did he
send me a some test samples but he also called me regularly for instant feedback.
If you need all size prints and even some occasional low run print work I totally
recommend Terry and his high quality services.

Eric Nocella Diaz
Art Director/Co-Publisher/Artist - Xmoor Studios :iconarthammer:

"Terry , Hey Thanks again for my 2nd order of Prints the quality,color and Paper are GREAT they will work out great for my next convention !  I already have another order ready for next week .

Thanks again ,
Tim Convention Promoter      :iconsupertim68:

"My HeroTOON prints came out great and exceeded all of my expectations!!!"

Alan Schell
HeroTOONS :iconalanschell:

"Imaginary Concepts (Heroes Press) is the best printers of comics I’ve found (And I’ve tried a lot!)
You can’t go wrong with Terry. Personalized service and he means it. I don’t have to keep searching around for a printer anymore!"
---Allen Freeman ( :iconmaknbacon:

The saying goes you get what you pay for then I should of paid Heropress 10x's more than I did. Professional, responsive and high quality products. My graphic novel could not have been in better hands. Thanks Heroes Press you guys set the benchmark for what other P.O.D.s should be like.
