K.M. & R.P. & MCMLXXL (1971)

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!

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!

Please help spread the word!
