I did a few comics for my senior thesis, but this comic was kind of my central focus. I wanted to share a preview, but I’ll post the comic as a whole later this summer.
I’ll have copies of the book for sale at both CAKE in June and upcoming TCAF, but it’s also already available through my store and through Gumroad!
Anyway, it follows two private high school girls on the brink of graduation as they try to each write a novel. I tried a couple neat things with it and it’s been printed nicely through RA Comics Direct. I can’t wait to share the full thing!
Hey, I’ll be at CAKE this weekend with copies of the Special Emergency Kinko’s Edition™ of KING-CAT #76, featuring stories about Winter and Sitting in Restaurants, plus tons of great Spit and a Half Distro stuff!
i’m exhausted. here’s a bunch of stuff i got at CAKE (chicago alternative comics expo)
work by Jane Mai, Laurie Piña, Michael Deforge, Leif Goldberg, Keith Herzik, Mike Taylor, Anya Davidson, Max Morris, Anthony Meloro, Matt Crabe, Tim Beckhardt, Lale Westvind, G.W. Duncanson, Mardou, Mickey Z. Thanks to all the awesome people I met or reunited with.
I forced myself this evening to sit down with my white out and
magnifying glass and 005 Micron and finish hand cleaning the pages for
King-Cat 76. So now it’s ready to scan. If I can stay focused maybe I
can get a short run printed in time for CAKE. Hold on to your butts,
For years I’d hoped for an Alternative Comics Festival to take root in my hometown of Chicago, one of the comics capitals of the world, and it’s been to my great delight to see CAKE evolve after only a few short years into one of our best annual shows. So I feel very excited to be judging this year’s Cupcake Award, and providing a mentorship to the winner. I encourage all up and coming cartoonists to apply, and look forward to seeing the submissions!
