Makin' the Comics!

We're heading up to White River Junction this weekend to make a ton of books!

Sundays 4 will be in production as well as Kids, the anthology that José and I will be putting together.

Both will debut at MoCCA next weekend!!!

Also, I'm collecting all the journal comics I've been putting up here, along with the memory comics and pages from my sketchbooks. While I was putting it together, part of me wants to just light it all on fire and forget about it. But I'll leave that up to you guys, feel free to buy it and read it then light it on fire! I mean this in the best way possible.

Here's the cover (the full spread)


So yeah, we'll be at MoCCA, next to our buddies Secret Acres!

And I've been thinking a lot about dancing. I might start taking tap again. Or jazz.

A Lot of Stuff all at Once


Ok. Here's a whole bunch of things.

I haven't posted much personal stuff in a was hard for me to admit it when things weren't getting better. But this little drawing sums up what I'm trying to do now. What I'm thinking about. Mostly I want to not take things so freaking seriously anymore! Life is hilarious! I'm having fun being cozy in our apartment, sewing things, baking things, drawing things, and hanging out with our cat who's a lovable asshole.

be brave ok

Also, Chuck and I went to NYC and saw a live WTF at the Bell House. And I shook Marc Maron's hand. And he talked about us at the beginning of the show. I almost peed my pants. I don't know when the episode will go up but I hope it's soon. It was amazing. Something about hearing his voice makes everything seem like it's going to be ok.

I made a list a while ago of my favorite kids in books, movies, tv, life...I want to start drawing them. Here's Tatum O'Neal as Addie Loggins in Paper Moon.


And here's a little preview of my story that is in Sundays 4:

forever changes

And here's a fat cat I drew that is on the cover of Chuck's brother's band's new album:

And finally, here is my version of Annie Koyama's Kick Ass Annie logo. Annie is one of my absolute favorite people in comics. She is so generous and awesome and is doing amazing amazing things with Koyama Press, and I was so psyched to do this drawing.
