The Studio Moonfall Grand Opening

If you’ve ever worried that some of the ideas running around in your head are just TOO weird for the world, I’d like you to have a peek into my mind.

Since I prefer to keep my skull intact, I figure the best way to share it all with you is to just bring this nonsense to life and give it a home. That home is Studio Moonfall. And I’d like you to come to the Grand Opening on September 21st and 22nd at 5031 7th Avenue, Kenosha, Wisconsin. Sign up for it here – https://www.facebook.com/events/368800657147896

Studio Moonfall is an independent publisher of art & madness and we’re opening up shop in downtown Kenosha. Brought to you by me, Donovan Scherer, I’m the author and illustrator of the Fear & Sunshine series (a story of monsters, mad science, and a little hippie girl) as well as a handful of other things. If you’re looking for all-ages adventures in horror, fantasy, and science fiction, I’m here to help.

The shop will be many things all at once because why would I possibly want to settle on just one idea? Here’s what we have coming:

  • The Publishing Workshop – A place where I can work on my projects and you can get a sneak peek at what’s coming up
  • The Gift Shop – Buy something for yourself or anyone you know who needs a creative outlet
  • The Educatron – Still working on setting this up, but I plan on carrying How to Draw/Write books, STEM project kits, and other things to help you sharpen your skills
  • The Comic Con – The dedicated Artist Alley of the shop will feature professional and independent artists, comic creators, and writers every week so you can see how to make a living with your work
  • The Bookstore – Get Fear & Sunshine and all my other books in the shop and begin your descent into Madness!

While I’ll continue with my never-ending world tour of comic conventions, art fairs, and the Kenosha Harbor Market, I wanted to have a place where you know you can find me to get some books, art, or just pick my brain for your own adventures into self-publishing.

For now, the plan is to have the shop open every Sunday 10-5pm starting after the Grand opening. I’ll be expanding into weekdays ASAP but for now will be hanging onto my soul-sucking day job (though we could ditch that with your support through https://www.patreon.com/donovanscherer or https://www.studiomoonfall.com/amazon

 

The workshop is already looking awesome and once I add the finishing touches, it’ll be something weird and wonderful so I hope you can come have a look at our next step on the path of movies and a theme park.

If you’re ready to help be part of a place bringing monsters to life, sign up for the Studio Moonfall Grand Opening on Facebook and be the thing that goes bump in the night!

The Road to Independence

There’ll be tons of people in downtown Kenosha this weekend for the Fourth of July, so we’re opening up the doors for sneak peeks at the Studio Moonfall publishing workshop.

If you’re in the area and would like to have a behind-the-scenes look at how I’m trying to break free from my day job so I can focus on bringing weird stories to life, stop on by.

Sneak Peek/Open Houses will be on Thursday, Friday, and Sunday from noon to 5pm. The shop is at 5031 7th Ave in downtown Kenosha. We’re between the Oriental Inn and QPS on the west side of our odd shaped, triangular block.

On Saturday, it’s Harbor Market from 9 to 2pm.

It’ll be a busy holiday weekend but that’s not nearly all we have going on…

The Zombie Guide is Rising from the Dead!

It’s been a long time since I’ve been able to carry copies of the Zombie Guide to English Grammar but I’ve got some awesome news. After talking to the dude that originally published the book, he’s handing it over to me.

Not only does that mean it’ll be back on my shelves soon, but since I’m taking the wheel on this one, I’ll be able to expand the artwork to turn it more into a coloring book and add some weird little quirks to fill your undead educational experience.

So, stay tuned and I’ll let you know when that book crawls back up out its grave.

 

PS – If you can’t make it to the sneak peeks this week, check out all the progress being made on the shop at https://www.patreon.com/donovanscherer

The Studio Moonfall Parade!

Downtown Kenosha This Weekend!

Kenosha is throwing a parade to celebrate the Studio Moonfall workshop coming to life!
Sure, they accidentally call it the "Civic Veterans Parade" in all their promotions but we know what's really going on, don't we?

On top of this event, Sunday we'll be having an open house and sidewalk sale at the shop. Come by to see what I've been working on.

For a sneak peek, check out everything I've been sharing on my Patreon page.

The open house will be from noon to 5pm on Sunday, June 30th at 5031 7th Avenue. If you're familiar with the area, the shop is between Oriental Inn and QPS on the 7th Avenue side of the block. For more details and to get any updates I think of, sign up for notification on the Facebook event.

And of course, Harbor Market will be Saturday morning. The forecast is questionable but has been every weekend so far and weather has been pretty solid over in my little spot next to Lake Michigan.

Hope to see you this weekend!

Studio Moonfall’s Going Downtown!

Studio Moonfall’s house of art and madness is here!

Time to drop the Operation: Little Pig name and call it what it is. Studio Moonfall now has a studio space in downtown Kenosha, Wisconsin. It’ll take the summer to build it up for Halloween but I’ll be doing open houses every Sunday through August 24th from noon to 5pm so you can check things out as they grow and pick up some books and art to help me afford this monstrosity. Stop and visit at 5031 7th Ave next to the Oriental Inn restaurant.

If you want to just follow along on the progress of building the workshop, I’ve set up a Patreon at www.patreon.com/donovanscherer
All the info going through there will be free so you just need to use the Follow button without making a pledge. But if you do want to support with $1/month, I won’t stop you.

Mighty Con DuPage – Feb. 9, 2019

It’s the first show of the year this Saturday. I’m very confused. It’s exciting to get back on the world tour but after spending the winter either locked inside or working at the day job, I’m not too sure how interacting with humans will work out. Might be weird…
See you there!

Mighty Con
February 9, 2019
10am to 5pm

DuPage County Fairgrounds
2015 Manchester Rd.
Wheaton, IL

It’s a Halloween Miracle!

You may have seen on my 1000th Instagram post the other day that we’ve got a special announcement. Amazon has set up something big for Studio Moonfall just in time to give a bit of Halloween throughout the upcoming holidays.
We’ve got ourselves a new store!
This is a one stop shop for all my monster/mad science/misfit work available on Amazon – print books, ebooks, t-shirts, and pop sockets. While I don’t think I’m any good at promoting my stuff online, I think I did a darn fine job hanging my shingle on the new storefront.
Check it out and be sure to share it if you like what you see. If we can get enough people helping make Halloween last till Christmas, maybe the next thing Amazon will give us is an animated series for any of the many ideas bouncing around in the think tank…
