I realize the plot’s pretty thick already, but I’m just throwin’ some more cornstarch in there.

News! We’re closing in on the Stumptown Comics Fest at the Oregon Convention Center here in Portland, where I’ll be exhibiting and appearing on two panels.


On the Thursday night before the Fest (4/26), I’ll also be making a Special Guest Appearance at the April edition of Comics Underground, providing some voices for a reading by studiomate (and fellow Eisner nominee) Jonathan Case from his wonderful book Dear Creature. It is going to be silly and excellent.

She's PROBABLY going to be fine.

And, at the fest, I’ll be debuting my first-ever screen print design, hand-pulled by Erika. I am super-excited to have a Fancy Thing – I’ll post a teaser image on Tumblr after this weekend.

Detail from future screen print.

And, new in the store is a print of my illustration for the 2012 Monsters and Dames book, featuring Ariadne and the Minotaur passin’ some spare time in the labyrinth. Get ‘em while they last!

Monster, Meet Dame.

And, confidential to Lucy in the UK: your painting has boomeranged safe and sound, and will be back on its way to you on Tuesday morning!

Ahoy, strangers! After a few weeks of nasty tendinitis, I am back and updating. My poor cranky arm is very grateful for the time off. Thanks for your patience, all. With some continued gentle treatment it should be back to 100% before long.

In case you weren’t visiting the Family Man site or following me elsewhere, this month’s super-exciting news is that my short story, Outfoxed, has been nominated for an Eisner Award in the Best Digital Comic category! I am hugely grateful for the honor. If you’re an industry pro, you can kick in your vote at; if you’re a civilian, well, you can now read the story knowing that it has been nominated for something.

And, yes, I do have plans to put the story in print, as well. You’ll hear more about that soon!

Meanwhile, preparations begin for the Stumptown Comics Fest here in Portland. Hometown shows are the best, and it looks like I’ll be on a couple of panels.

Then at the end of May I’ll be journeying up to Vancouver B.C. for the first-ever VanCAF. I’m excited to have another West coast show and an excuse for my lovely Northwestern Canuck readers to avoid paying international postage. Plus, the ready availability of honey-dip Timbits.

Lastly, it’s finally spring here. I got a little overexcited and made my (first ever) dippy li’l animation. It is of me, smacking my face into a tulip. The muse of poetry comes to each in her own way, I guess. See you next week!
