This is the cover to the newest mini I had at MoCCA. In it I printed a bunch of drawings I had from some friends that they did of what they thought their insides look like. I'm obsessed with guts. It's so weird to me that all this stuff goes on inside of me, and I have no idea what it looks like. I'm planning on collecting more, so if you want, draw a picture of your guts and send it to me!

I've been working at the Main Street Museum as an intern for a little while. Not only is it the coolest place ever, but I get to take photos of things like tiny shoes and scary old toys. I am working on setting up a flickr account for the museum. Check it out!

A choice few of some amazing books Chuck and I got at MoCCA (we share books now, which is awesome, because we can get everything we want that way). From top left clockwise:
The Natural World # 2 by Damien Jay- Chuck introduced me to this guy, and he is one of my new favorites. His drawing is so consistent and beautiful, and looks so loose and easy like Quentin Blake or Jules Feiffer. (hint: damien jay is not Damian Jay)
Lazarus by Mardon Smet- Chuck got this from the Scandinavian table. It looks incredible, I haven't read it yet.
What is Hair?- funniest cover ever. Also from the Scandinavian row at MoCCA.
The latest Uptight by Jordan Crane!!!!
The Gigantic Robot by Tom Gauld, one of my favorite artists ever. This is his latest book. It's really simple, but every time I read it it gets better. Also it's made of this really heavy stock that feels amazing.
P.S. Comics by Minty Lewis, just came out from Secret Acres. Fruit and Yorkies are really cute and make you feel really uncomfortable at the same time. My favorite is the story about a relationship between a salt shaker and some sugar. (Is it called a sugar shaker?)
Department of Art #1 by Dunja Jankovic. I haven't read this yet, but it looks frikin awesome. And I got to meet her, and she is super nice.
My Boy by O. Schrauwen. Beautiful beautiful drawings, really really weird and hilarious. It was at the Bries table, one of the best tables at MoCCA, I thought.
Mourning Star #2 by Kazimir Strzepek!!! I love the way he draws so much.
The new Papercutter is my favorite Papercutter so far that I've read. Not only is the cover awesome, but all the stuff inside is awesome: Damien Jay, Jesse Reklaw, Minty Lewis!!!
And finally, Follow Me (or issue #3 of Backwards Folding Mirror) by Jesse Moynihan. Probably my favorite thing that I've read so far from MoCCA. Chuck introduced me to his work too. I loved reading this one especially...you move along his crazy world so easily, and the drawings are awesome, and I want to read it again already.
I had so much fun tabling with the Sundays crew: Alex, Sean, Chuck, and Joe. Sundays 3 looks amazing, you all should be so proud!!! I wish I had a good picture of it, but I don't...I'll find one.
Also, a little shout out!

Here's a shitty picture of my eyeballs and some comics!
all the way to the left is a little peek at the book that Chuck
and I did for Sundays 3: "Good Morning, Dogburgh", then it's "Freddy", then a little zine I just made called "Guts", which is full of guts. It's also interactive. And cheap.
They are all amazing, so come by!
NYC here we come!
