I’ll be at Rose City Comic-con this weekend at the Oregon Convention Center! It’s my last appearance of 2014, so if you’re in the Portland area, don’t miss the chance to stop by.
In addition to exhibiting with my amazing studiomates at Booth #1217, selling books, prints, stickers, patches, and small art commissions, I’ll also be appearing on the most delightfully titled panel of all time:
Farting in Battle Armor: Comedy Writing for Genre Comics
Room: Panel Room 5
Time: Saturday, 4:00PM – 4:50PM
A prize squadron of multi talented writers, artists, editors and critics discuss how to inject a little levity into any sequential situation. Featuring Ben Coleman (Live Wire Radio), Dylan Meconis (Family Man), Joelle Jones (Helheim) & Courteney Hameister (Live Wire Radio).
Next year I expect to have a very different-looking booth, as I publish Volume 2 of Family Man and transition out some of my back catalogue of prints, patches, and whoozy-whatsits. If there’s anything I sell that you’ve been waiting to get your hands on, don’t wait any longer – and I’ll see you there!
I’ll be at a hometown show this weekend – the Rose City Comic Con! This is my first time at the show and I’m looking forward to it greatly. Especially delightful since my compatriots from Periscope Studio will all be tabling with me! Local shows are the best, because I can bring just about everything I’ve ever printed or drawn and put it on the table.
This is my last official convention appearance for 2013, so I’ll see you all there.
I’ll be in Maryland this weekend, September 14 and 15, for the Small Press Expo! Come find me at Table I-7 with the excellent Carla Speed McNeil, where we will both have art, books, and smiles for all and sundry. See you there!
It’s been a very busy couple of weeks for me! Here are some headlines:
1) I’m the new writer at PvP!
Earlier this year I enjoyed an unexpected three-week run as guest artist/writer on Scott Kurtz’s beloved landmark webcomic, PvP. I’ve been a fan of the strip for ages, and I had a total blast. Fast forward a few months to PvP’s fifteenth birthday, and Scott asked if I’d be interested in coming on as a regular writing contributor. So, starting with the most recent storyline, we’ve been working together to write and plan the strip and take it in some very exciting new directions. (And, luckily for me, Scott will still be drawing everything!)
This is really a fun development for all involved, and I’m having disgusting amounts of fun. You can look forward to hearing lots more about my adventures in strip co-authoring. And if you’ve never read PvP before, this is a great time to start!
2) TCAF adventures
I’m just back from Toronto for my second-ever trip to TCAF. A huge thanks to everybody who found me! The festival pulls in some of the most enthusiastic and cheerful attendees in the known universe, and incredible creators and good friends grouped in almost overwhelming numbers. Cheers to Chris Butcher and all his fellow organizers and volunteers for all their hard work.
I had an especially great time finally meeting longtime favorite folks like Bill Amend, Alex Woolfson, and Katie Shanahan, and tabling next to the impressive talents of Kenan Rubinstein, Nina Matsumoto, and Nicole Chartrand. I also enjoyed a day staring at dinosaur bits at the Royal Ontario Museum with Lucy Bellwood and Boulet (on the last leg of his exhaustive North American tour). Lodging and sharing several blissful meals with my traditional TCAF teammates Lucy Knisley and Erika Moen kept me from running myself too ragged.
Thank you, Toronto!
3) It’s spring in Portland!
