The Shticks Collector’s Edition is having its 8th anniversary this year since first publication in 2007. I have just revised and updated it, but to celebrate this new edition, I’m making a first-time, time-limited offer:

I want you in it!

Yes, I will draw you in my shtick cartoon style and prepare a special edition of The Shticks Collector’s Edition to include you in it!

This is our chance to be in my first book ever together! Forever!

First you’ll choose the option that best fits your budget (details below), then we’ll talk or email (You choose). Then I’ll draw you. I don’t know yet what you look like but this is what your body will look like:

Then I’ll drop you into a special bonus material part of The Shticks Collector’s Edition.

then-ill-drop-you-in-a-special-bonus-chapter-of-the-shticks-collectors-edition

Don’t worry: it won’t be scary at all! You’ll be like, “That wasn’t so bad!” And I’ll be like, “Not at all!” You will even probably thank me and be glad you’ll have this memory eternalized in a graphic cartoon by an up-and-coming webcomic lady! (I’ll try to live up to the up-and-coming part).

OPTION 1: Buy ebook version with you in it ($99.00):


Your Own Shtick in the Collectors Edition Book!




What you get:

  • One image: Your shtick style cartoon persona with a quote you like in a special edition just for you of my already published Collector’s Edition book. Forever.
  • It can be something you always say or something someone else says or used to say that you want to be associated with.
  • Or instead of a quote, it can be a depiction (one panel) of a special moment in your life (perhaps with a special person or pet): something funny, or touching, or inspiring, celebratory, etc. You choose.
  • It can be your shtick persona doing something you’ve done that you are proud of, or something you do that you are proud of.
  • It can be you fulfilling a dream you’ve always dreamed about. Say you’ve always wanted to go to France or Africa. I will put your shtick in a photo anywhere you want. Or doing anything you’ve always wanted to do.
  • You can tell me on the phone or you can write me. You choose.
  • It will be downloadable to any device (Apple’s ipad, Android, Windows, Mac) as many times as you want. You will get a link to download the ebook to share with anyone you want.
  • Download instructions will be emailed to you once I have everything ready.
  • My ebook with your image/cartoon will have you only in your special edition. Someone else who purchases this package will have their separate special edition.
  • The ebook cover will say: “Bonus material featuring (your name).”
  • You will get a short making-of video of your project. Additionally, the video will be viewable from within the ebook.
  • Free instagram animation video of your shtick person moving (very basic moves).

This is a first-time offer in my career but I have prepared images for others that have not been published in my book.

Veronica Shticks Anderson grew up homeschooled between two worlds: American and Brazilian, which taught her to appreciate both obvious and subtle differences in diverse peoples, cultures and languages. She created “The Shticks” in her mid-teens to satirize and just plain poke fun at real life situations that she found humor and inspiration in.

Veronica taught English for 13 years at one of the most prestigious languages schools in Brazil (Yazigi), founded a seminar company and studied marketing, photography, graphic design and video-making but her passion has always been portraying real-life situations with minimalistic characters.

Through the years Veronica refined The Shticks from her youth’s sketchy stick people drawings to more stylized characters who depict not only humor but also wisdom, cultural, social and spiritual stories. She uses photo-manipulation and videos to aid in putting The Shticks in creative settings for her stories.
