My buddy Andrew Oesch and I are mentoring together at New Urban Arts starting in a few weeks. I'M SO SUPER PSYCHED! We are the "publishing mentors", which we just sort of made up; and I think it means we'll be making books, all kinds of books, and things that you make more than one of, like posters. We will also be constructing a cardboard publishing house for the studio.

These are some drawings I did for a poster that Andrew will be making about us as publishing mentors.

Stuff to Read!

See on the right where it says "Read some comics"?

Click on it to read some choice stories from my two Freddy minis. The first book has been redrawn for the Xeric application.

It's not new really, but it's there.

You know what is new? My mom found a little snake in the basement and I picked it up to put it outside and it bit me. We're pretty sure it's a milksnake and not poisonous. But I still thought I was going to die.

Too bad it was a milksnake and not milksteak.

The application is in!!!

Now I wait. Here's the cover...


Also, I'm not going to MICE in Boston tomorrow anymore... I suddenly got overwhelmed that we're moving to Providence NEXT WEEKEND and I want to spend more time with Ma while I'm here.

BUT Chuck is still going, and Sam Gaskin, and Jose-Luis Olivares. And they are amazing amazing amazing. (My books will still be at their table.) Sorry MICE! Maybe next time.

SPX 2010 and my new arm

My favorite thing I got at SPX. It's comic poetry, so beautiful and simple and inspiring...I'm going to read it again immediately.

Blurry Sean Ford, Alex Kim, and Yours Truly. Chuck Forsman is around somewhere! Photo by Jacie Anderson-Coovert.


Monster, put together by Paul Lyons, and he did the amazing cover too. It's full of incredible comics! I'm not sure where you can buy it now, when I know I'll tell you. Eventually I bet you can get it from Picturebox.

Monster at SPX!

Here's a sample for a REALLY EXCITING upcoming anthology (it'll be at SPX!) that I'm in (so are Chuck and other awesome people). It's a new issue of Monster, the comics anthology put together by the dudes of Fort Thunder (the last issue came out 9 years ago).

Chuck and I are moving to Providence in a month, which we're very excited about, so it's extra awesome and special to be included in this comic. Right now we're living at my mom's house in MA surrounded by animals and crafts and a giant inflatable dinosaur. It rules.

hope to see you next weekend!
