Hey folks. I got nominated for an Ignatz award last week in the “Promising New Talent” category (with someotherfinefolks as well that you should all check out.) I was nominated for these two books that I done did called “Onions" & "Or_nge: Chapter One,” both of which are the price of a flat-bread sammie (just two dollars) (RIP MCD)
Also, in terms of news both recent AND exciting, I’m actually going to be tabling at SPX this year too, and I will be located at table A1A, which you can see by looking at this schematic here:
Also, also, I’m going to debuting a new book (along with many other sweet new books that people are debuting as well). It’s called “Into The Waves”, and it will be 37 pages of black and white splendor. The story follows a fifteen-year-old girl, who goes on a summer vacation to the Jersey shore with her parents and baby sister. There she has new experiences, both good and bad, while she struggles to adapt to her rapid ascent into adulthood. I’m not quite done with it yet, but I will be in time for SPX.
Hopefully I’ll all you there on Septembers 13th & 14th. Awooooo.
Soooo, my next comic (which you can tell by the title of this post is called “Into The Waves”) is all finished up on the inking front. Just have colors left to go, so it will most definitely be done in time For MICE, and also I might potentially be able to pull off another comic by then too. Who can say.
Here’s a couple images from Into The Waves:
Here’s Anne enjoying some fireworks in what will probably become the back cover
And here’s the flyer for the all-important Jessica Flesher show at the Clam Lounge
I’m a have these at whatever the next convention I’m at. It’s a short story collection featuring the stories MOVIE NIGHT, LEFTOVERS, and THIN ICE. The cost won’t be great (like a buck or something), but unfortunately I don’t take Wampum.
“And all that these indie-rock bands ever have to say is [mockingly fey singing], “It’s all right, it’s OK … All we have is just tonight!”—That’s such an outrageous statement! At best they’re saying something like, “Take comfort in the simple things.” Like some pat on the head right before you wet the bed. It sucks and just teaches people to be complacent. Like, “All you have is all you’re ever gonna get, so just take it. Take it in the ass.””—
Here’s pretty much what the cover to my next full-length story is gonna be. It’s called Into The Waves and it’s about a fifteen-year-old Anne Arbor going on a summer vacation with her family. All the pencils are done now.
