APE Sneak Peek

Hi everyone,

The Alternative Press Expo in San Francisco is happening this weekend (10/17-18)! I will have a table to present some limited edition My Milk Toof products, along with two showcases of ickle and Lardee models to see in person! My booth number is #274 and it's located near the programming room. 


A Little Sneak Peek

I am proud to present my first self published book "ickle and Lardee's Grand Adventure", with only 500 copies printed. It contains the three complete stories of ickle and Lardee's Grand Adventure posted last June. The book is 5.25" x 6.5" (13.3 cm x 16.5 cm), 82 pages in full color. Each book is numbered and will come with three complimentary mini prints. Here are some pictures. Click here.

Below are the three complimentary matte prints that will come with the book. Size is 3.5" x 5"(8.8cm x 12.7cm) and they have rounded corners. Click here.

Next are a limited run of postcards, featuring sixteen different images from various stories. They are 4.12" x 5.75" (10.5 cm x 14.6 cm), 16pt thickness with a glossy finish. Click here.


Lastly I will be selling a set of twelve minicards. They are only 1" x 2.75" (2.5 cm x 7 cm) and contain some artist information on the back. These are limited to only 30 packs. Click here.

For those who can't make it to San Francisco, the remaining books, postcards and minicards will be posted on the My Milk Toof blog after APE for purchase. I really look forward to meeting everyone, see you soon!!

Cheers,

Inhae

Best of luck!

Allison the Meep said...

Ahhh! Those are all awesome! I hope at some point you put these up for sale on here, because my son would flip out if he were to receive any of these things.

JOLYN! said...

Wow, congrats! :D
I absolutely love the way you make the two milk tooth come alive. Really makes me feel as if they can really move and talk! Haha :)

macha said...

Amanda said...

Have a great time at the expo!
Wishing it was in Oregon so that I could come!
I will be checking your blog for merch afterwards.
Do you ever plan on having little Lardee and ickle replica's for sale?
Thanks for sharing your creativity!

Anonymous said...

i, as well, hope that you get tons left over >.< !! please DO consider selling more stuff online, i PERSONALLY PROMISE to buy them!!

Shellen said...

PRINT MORE!!!

Everyone posting here will totally buy one or more, but there probably won't be any left after the expo.

Why should San Francisco get all the Milk Toof to themselves?

Wammy-Bar said...

I AGREE WITH SHELLEN! Only 500 copies?? I would love to get a copy but I would be very surprised if they become available. Plus, I live in Canada. Any chance you will ship to the Frozen North?

Tori said...

i'm sure you'll sell out immediately! can't wait until there are more available :)

Laia said...

OMG I want that book so badly!! I hope there will be some copies left (although I doubt it) and that you'll ship to Spain T_T

Sophie Lacroix said...

Eu quero, eu quero, eu quero!!! Lindo demais!! Parabéns!!

Barbro Andersen said...

Congratulations - you truly deserve this, and much more!

TatiLie said...

Congratulations!
Finally I know the origin of your unusual name! Do ickle and Lardee's name have Korean meaning?
Best of luck!

Paula from Sweden said...

Cool... But it will not come out in Sweden, or will it?

c.a.r.o.l.i.t.h.e. said...

spvn said...

Haha there are surprisingly quite a lot of Singaporeans here. Hope you'll sell more online as well!

Anonymous said...

CONGRATS! Here's to hoping you do well (but not SO well that you don't have any extras for me to purchase after the expo!) haha

Emovere said...

rich johnson said...

Ashley said...

I agree with all the "please sell them to the poor souls who aren't in SF" sentiments... If you happen to have any left... I would snatch them up in a hurry!
Love ickle and Lardee!! LOVE! :)

CLOSET-OPTIMIST said...

Hey there :) Stumbled across your blog just a few weeks back and now my 3 year-old daughter is wondrously fascinated by ickle and Lardee. Please do print more copies of your book and do let us know when and how and if we'll be able to get a copy for ourselves here in Singapore!
All the best with the APE booth! You're sure to blow everyone's socks off! :)

Queen Vee said...

Oh man! Can I order one of everything now? There'll be none left after the expo! So cuuuuuute! And you tell a terrific story.

Nina said...

Hi! I'm very impressed by your work and I'm really in loove with ickle and Lardee and their adventures - they're soo cute.

And when I see this book and all the pictures.. well.. I'm really sad to live in Sweden and not being able to come and check this out at the alternative Press Expo.

Keep up the VERY good work.
Love from Sweden.

Carrie said...

Eeeek! :) Congratulations!
Savor every last bit of this moment; you deserve it! ;)

ZONKS! Please oh please add me to the people who hope these are available to buy after the convention!

What a wonderful book. Looks like we'll be close neighbors @ APE! We're @ 277. See you there!

Morty said...

Wow-I would love to be there but it is tough to get a flight when you are a Sock Monkey

dugasd said...

So, when you sell out in the first hour, will you promise us that there will be reprints and more books to come? I'd love to get about 10 books for everyone I know that loves ickle and Lardee. I showed them to my mom once and afterward she looked at me and asked if you had a book out. We'd both gladly pay $30 for a single copy. Please print more! SF shouldn't be able to keep them all!

Anonymous said...

Hello Inhae! Just stumbled upon your blog today, and have now went through every single one of your posts.

I just want you to know that you, icky and Lardee made so, so happy.
Love the storytelling, the beautiful pictures, colours, details, every single thing.

I'd buy your book.. if i could. Its times like these when its sucks to be 16 and live in Norway..

FoS said...

I'd just like to chime in with the masses - I love love love this site and I absolute love the new book and other merchandise, and I think if you made more and sold them online you'd find a ton of customers!

Congratulations, good luck, and thanks for providing us with this amazing blog!

Zybulka said...

I hope there will be some "remaining" because I cannot come from France :-(
congratulations for the book, what an achievement!

connoisseur-of-cute said...

I want one of your books by whatever means possible! One part of me wants you to be wildly successful at the exhibition and sell out in 14.32 minutes. The other part of me wants you to sell none so that I can get a copy!

Tara Amelz said...

Sheila said...

I just had to leave a comment to brag that I went to A.P.E. and met ickle, Lardee, and Inhae!

They posed in the showcases and the fame didn't even seem to go to their heads. No sunglasses indoors, no feather boas.... They're modest little teef! :-)

Monica said...

Hi Inhae!

It was great meeting you at APE today! It was so cool to see you and the milk teef in person. We are loving our little ickle and Lardee teef pins, who are living it up at home with our other stuffed animals. :-)

Vanessa said...

Please please pleaassse let there be leftoverd! XD

Congratz!

joods in ma said...

Congratulations Inhae on your appearence at APE! :) Unfortunately I live on the East Coast so was unable to attend. Just like Vanessa, I too am hoping there are some leftovers. I love me some ickle and Lardee...I never imagined I'd fall in love with teef. Who knew!

John said...

I also went to APE.
I was there for a few minutes but everyone around was saying how cute it was.
There were also little ickle and Lardee plushes for button pins.
Bought two lovely books and wow they're numbered 35 and 53...
Dunno if they were selling sequentially, but if so, there may be plenty for everyone online :)

AYDesign said...

I hope there's lots of photos of the event. Sounds like it was super cute!

I really hope there's enough left over books to go around :D

I'm anxiously awaiting the opportunity to buy one :D

Neri said...

please make more, and make them available! i need them so bad too!

Joslyn H said...

Oh my god, ickle and lardee plush! I might die. Cannot wait to hear what is left available to purchase.

YellowElephants said...

Hi Inhae-

I hope your expo went well. If there are any books left to purchase, I would LOVE to buy one from you. Ickle and Lardee's adventures have brightened many a day for me in the office. Thanks thanks thanks. -megan tabque mtabaque@gmail.com
