By Chance or Providence: Collecting my trilogy of mini comics in one hardcover graphic novel! Pre-orders are now up on The Werehouse, along with two limited-edition screenprints 

*If you are a retailer and interested in wholesale options for By Chance or Providence, please check out Lounak Distribution!

I’d very much appreciate you guys sharing this! I’m only printing as many copies as I get orders for, and I need all the help I can get to get the word out! <3 Love you guys!

The last thing you want to be is an ASPIRING creator.  Be a shitty creator, but don’t aspire.  Comics are easier to make than EVER.

I keep hashtagging #trustcomics because it’s true.  For some reason pictures on top of words is powerful.  Trust that power.  Learn. Share.

You don’t need permission or approval.  Study the masters.  Don’t filter your learning.  Absorb and produce.  TELL ME A STORY.

I’ve had 100s maybe 1000s of people ask me how to break in, how to get better.  None of them told me a story first.

SYMBOLISM DESIGN AND JUXTAPOSITION are the tools of our trade.  Takes one panel to set it up and 3 panels to tell a story.  TELL ME A STORY.

If you work in comics, you LOVE STORIES.  Cut the shortcuts and appeal to this in everyone you want to hire you.  #trustcomics
