A Coloring Book of Weird Ideas

Are you and everyone you know locked inside and bored out of your minds?

Let’s do something about it!

I need your help to come up with the next coloring book and at the same time, keep Studio Moonfall around long enough to make its stand against our future robot overlords. For a bonus, as the coloring book is made, we’re going to put the pages up here so that everyone coming down with a case of cabin fever can print them up and have some coloring fun to keep them busy.

Once we have 50 illustrations ready to go, I’ll put it together into a full coloring book!

Come Get Your Monsters

During my attempt to have the shop open for at least a bit everyday this October, I had some time to get new pics of how things are looking. Check out all of them on the Patreon post!



If you want to come see it for yourself, the usual day to visit is Sunday 10am to 5pm. For this month, I'm also aiming to be open Monday through Thursday from 4pm to 7pm. Fridays and Saturdays are a little off because I'm helping out at the Kemper Center Haunted House but available times will be announced on the Studio Moonfall Facebook page.

Studio Moonfall This Weekend!

Studio Moonfall Opens This Weekend!

 

The Grand Opening is almost here!

Just yesterday, I had over 200 books arrive to stock the shelves. With that on top of cleaning up, designing a bunch of signs, and figuring out where to put all the snacks for people coming by, I'm going to have a pretty busy week.

I'm also working on last minute plans on Mystery Boxes, which will be a great deal on a whole lot of stuff, and Lifetime Passes, a big way for you to get all the books I write for the rest of forever along with some very one-of-a-kind artwork.

If I'm going to see you this weekend, be sure to sign up for the Facebook event so that you can get any quick updates – https://www.facebook.com/events/368800657147896

If you can't make it this weekend, don't sweat it! However, I could still use your help.

If you'd like to get something for yourself, like books or some of my brand new Monster Face T-shirts, visit the Amazon shop here – https://www.studiomoonfall.com/amazon

If you want to support this monstrous endeavor and keep the gears turning, visit  https://www.patreon.com/donovanscherer

If you're looking for a free way to help and love the books, they're in desperate need for more reviews on Amazon, especially on Monsters Around the Campfire. Find all the books and review your favorite by clicking here.

See you at Studio Moonfall!

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!

Hope to see you at Studio Moonfall!
