XO, OX: A Love Story – NYC Book Launch!

Ok, New Yorkers! It is time to celebrate some XO, OX!
 
We will be having another book launch party for XO,OX – A Love Story, the new book from Adam Rex and Scott Campbell! This time out here on the east coast at Books of Wonder. Come by the shop this Sunday February 11th at 1-3pm. I will be reading the book and talking about and drawing for the kids!Adam will unfortunately not be there, so I will sign my name reeeeeally big in the books to fill up space.
 
 
Sunday, February 12th, 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM
 
ADAM REX’s XO, OX: A Love Story is funny and witty tale between a hapless ox and a fabulous gazelle, told in correspondence. Join us as we celebrate with illustrator SCOTT CAMPBELL on the release here in New York City.
 
ADAM REX’s hilarious, sweet, and at times heartbreaking letters between a hopelessly romantic ox and a conceited, beautiful gazelle is paired perfectly with SCOTT CAMPBELL’s joyful illustrations to bring you a romance for the ages.
 
==========
 
I will also be reading the book and doing drawing workshops at Sunnyside Plays in Queens this Thursday Feb 9th from 4-6pm.
 
AND i will be paying a visit to Community Bookstore in Brooklyn to do a similar such visit this Saturday February 11th at 11am!
 
So please come to one of these little gatherings! They will be great.

Everything can be found in The Scott C Shop and on top of that everything is 15% off in the Scott C Shop now until Dec 4th!  Just use the code: Holiday15.

WheelDog1 TripleHorner1 TheGiz1

 

And here are the HOLIDAY GIFT IDEAS just for you:

 

1. Forest of Things print  (13×19 edition of 300) $45

There are things in the forest!  Have you seen them?  I’ll bet you are a huge fan if you have.  I for one am a huge fan of these things that are often in the forest.  They are also in a nostalgic little suburban town roaming around riding bikes and freaking out on telephones.  This print will look wonderful over your loved one’s couch or vintage record player or 8-track player.

StrangerThings_printSMALL

2. The Vests print (8×10 edition of 150) $25

Do your loved ones like VESTS?  Let’s take a moment to revel in the presence of VESTS.  These are the most famous of all VESTS!  Some you may recognize and some you may not.  It’s ok if you don’t recognize all of them, just ask a friend’s help with it.  But regardless, these wonderful VESTS should most definitely live on your loved one’s wall perhaps near or inside of the closet itself.  The foyer might also be a good spot for it, near the hanging coats.

TheVests

3. The After Party print (8×10 edition of 100) $25

The great battle of the day has ended!  Time to party!  Just float on up and reconvene with old friends and new ones in this print of the after times.  Leave those old bones behind!  You don’t need them at this party!  I’ll bet this print would look nice hanging over your loved one’s D&D sword collection.

TheAfterparty

4. PINS! $10 each or pack of 4 for $35! (Choices include: Lil Bones, Helicopter Dog, Wheel Dog, Sliming Fellow, Unicorn, Triple Horner, and The Giz)

10. Devil Bones Tote $15

Who’s this little Skeleton Devil cruisin’ through??  Where is he going? Probably on the way to the local shop to pick up some books!  Wouldn’t it be great if you were also cruising along with this Skeleton Devil?  Now you can!  He’s on this bag!  You can carry him with you!  And your loved ones will enjoy getting gifts in this thing i’ll bet.

SkeletonTote_Bag

10. GREAT SHOWDOWNS THE REVENGE (the book) – $15

If you are into movies, I feel like you should challenge yourself with this book.  I’ll bet you know many of these films because I have great faith in your movie knowledge.  This is the third collection in the Great Showdowns series.  “Expect many more epic and slightly less epic clashes.  Expect some barbarians, boxers, aliens in blankets, nerds, karate experts, runway models, wonderful singers, space warriors, lovers, elderly ladies, sushi chefs, camp kids, killer dolls, masterminds, dogs, and telephones!”

GreatShowdowns_SDCC

11. Zombie In Love 2 +1 – $15

Mortimer and Mildred are back with the sequel book calledZombie in Love 2 +1!  It follows the young couple as they journey into parenthood!  A brand new human baby is left on their doorstep and they must learn to care for him.  They discover quickly that human babies are not into zombie stuff.  Parenthood can be a struggle normally, so you can imagine how tough it is for these two zombie parents to care for a human baby.  I mean, just imagine!  And guess what?  All your other friends are in this book, the zombie dog, the worms, even a new zombie cat.  You’ll probably love it.

ZIL2_1024x1024

 

 12. Hug Machine – $17

Here is a classic pick! HUG MACHINE is the story of a child who is super down with hugging.  He is the self-proclaimed Hug Machine and he is very excited to tell everyone about it. He is very good at hugging and he is not shy to show the world.  He is ready for you to watch how amazing he is at hugging.  He hugs people, but he also hugs things.  Nothing escapes.  Nothing.  He even solves problems with his hugs.  Sometimes he comes up against some real tough hugs.  Hugs that would make others give right the heck up and turn away.  But the Hug Machine never backs down.  And if you, the reader, need a hug?  The Hug Machine will hug you.  Do not worry!  Everyone gets a hug.

HugMachine

And thus concludes this SCOTT C. HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE.  I hope you all have some wonderfully warm holiday times.  You are great.

 

love,  Scott C.
