King Con and Brooklyn Fest

Wow, it would seem that by the time I come around to posting pictures and information on one convention another is already underway. I guess I just turn off my convention brain post show and don't turn it on again till I need it.
So I must admit I had mixed feelings about Brooklyn's First Annual King Con. I thought I had a table then I thought I didn't. Then by the time I had acclimated myself to the idea I found out (the week of!) that we did indeed have a table. Thus I felt a bit rushed and suspicious. However, once there, any misgivings I had melted away as the King Con turn out to be a fantastic little show. It was cozy and intimate and not intimidating at all. People were forthright and interested. As usual I met talented and friendly creators and readers and at the end of the weekend my table-mate J.T. and I were giving each other high fives for a show well exhibited.

Above is a photo of J.T. manning the table. As you can see he's a little bundled up. That is due to what you cannot see; namely a frigid blast of air that blew against the back of our necks the whole weekend. That was probably my greatest complaint and, as I have said before, when your greatest complaint is the temperature that us a sure sign of a good show.

And this weekend I will be attending the newest convention on the scene: The Brooklyn Comics and Graphics Festival. Click the link to check out all the pertinent info. It is going to be amazing, packed with brilliant people, and most! Its only on Saturday so check it out. I will be wandering around.

And my last little bit of convention info is that i will be exhibiting this spring at MoCCA 2010. This year its gonna be in April so I am interested to see how that will affect my favorite convention of all. OK! No more convention news...for now. xo.

APE recap and King Con

Well I figured it was about time that I posted pictures info on the Alternative Press Expo from last month. It was a great show with a lot of amazing people and books to see. I loved the space and the general attitude of both exhibitors and attendees. Some personal highlights were meeting my table mate and fellow comics artiste Cat Lauigan, who is talented and charming as I had been led to believe. I was also sharing once again with Maria Sputnik which is always a pleasure. Plus she provided the knitted octopus for our table (see below) designed by Daniel Yuhas. If you need more cephalopod action specifically go here. Oh it may make my heart burst!
Additionally I had the pleasure of meeting cartoonists Minty Lewis and Damien Jay of P.S. Comics and The Natural World respectively. They were as nice as they are talented and I scored some really good books at their table. Definitely required reading.
The table next to us was home to the impressive Anteism and Islands Fold which was awesome as I like to think that I was made cooler by proximity.

Check out my pics!

Awesome APE space.

Decked out ladies checking out the panties.

Cat Lauigan manning our table. Please note the red octupus.

I had never been to California before so that was exciting too. I kept feeling like I was in a movie about California because well everything looked extremely California-y. After two days of conventioning I got to run around a be a tourist in San Francisco. My boyfriend and I did just about everything a typical tourist could think of; we went to Alcatraz, biked over the Golden Gate Bridge, rode a cable car, saw parrots on Telegraph Hill etc. and it was awesome. After San Francisco we wandered up the west coast hitting up Portland and Seattle before flying home East.

I could go on and on about APE and my West coast adventures, but I must look forward to the future! i.e. this weekend. Tomorrow you can find me at Brooklyn's King Con where I will be sharing a table with the fantastic J.T. Yost. I will be pimping The Deformitory as usual and My Terrible Tearable Heart so stop by and see what Brooklyn has to offer. The convention is at the Brooklyn Lyceum and will feature such esteemed guests as Jonathan Ames and Harvey Pekar. Please stop by, especially those of you who live a matter of blocks away and have no excuse not to. And when you do bring me a cup of coffee. See you there!

New Review

While I was away Matthew Brady gave me a review on his site Warren Peace (cleverest title ever). You can read it here. Matthew offers yet another possible interpretation of Dolores's problem which reminds me again how an author can have little to do with what his story is "about". Its a very kind review and the rest of the site is very awesome as he looks at beautiful older Kirby stuff as well as a great variety of current graphic novels. Quality stuff people. Check it out.

Goddamned Dirty APE

I am sure that joke is made all the time, but it just occurred to me. All right so this weekend is the Alternative Press Expo in San Francisco. And I have to say I am really excited because it looks like a really awesome convention and secondly I have never been to California!
I will be exhibiting with fellow illustrator and cartoonist Cat Lauigan. For those of you who are attending please stop by table 151 to check out what we've been working on. We'll have lots of fantastic books and as usual I will be selling underwear. Trust me, its adorable.
Below is the cover of my new and humble mini-comic "My Terrible Tearable Heart". Come by and check it all out.

SPX & Forty Four Presidents

Well Folks SPX came and went a couple weeks ago and apparently i was soooo awesome that I lost my blogging brain and have yet to get them back until now. But here is my SPX report! I Shared a Table with cartoonist J.T. Yost and I think we both came away from it very pleased with the weekend. The fair had a really good "vibe" for lack of a better word as the venue was comfortable and there was good flow. The biggest complaint was how utterly cold the place got on the second day. But if that's the biggest complaint at a convention then that's a good sign.
I met a lot of really cool people, including our table mate to the right Josh Neufeld author of A.D.: New Orleans After the Deluge. I was really struck this time around at how truly nice most of the people you meet are.
Other things I love is seeing all the good new stuff out there and the big pile of reading material which satiates me for weeks afterwards. I regret not meeting more of the people I wanted to but I always feel like I don't "do" enough. Here is J.T. manning our weirdly located table below:

In other news my friend and fellow cartoonist Maria Sputnik has just released her hilarious book Forty Four Presidents co authored by MZA. You can check it out on Amazon.

Oh there's more! So much more. APE is coming up and I have a new mini (mini!) comic, but it will have to wait until tomorrow.

Dumgrop Mountain.

Just a sketchbook drawing today. This is one that didn't make it into my latest endeavor.

Wednesday, September 16, 2009


Here's a link to the photo finish feature in the current issue of Time Out New York:

And for a little visual stimulation here is a drawing of my friend I made for her birthday party invites. It was a very fun job because she wanted the invitations to be like scratch-off lotto tickets where the invitees would have to scrape that fun foil stuff off to find out where when etc. I might post the invite itself after the party happens but in order to ensure a bunch of randoms don't show up I will wait on that for now.

oh weird its all sort of colours! I'll figure this out I swear. For now enjoy this psychedelic version.

Time Out New York

I have done another Photo Finish for the good folks over at Time Out New York and its out today. Pick up a copy and check it out. It may not be as funny as anthropomorphic baby ice cream carts being eaten alive, but it holds its own.
And its in the SEX issue! Now that's an issue I can get behind. Or under. ha? Read it.

Good News & SPX

I received a purchase order from Diamond Comics Distributors so you can officially anticipate my comic The Deformitory in comic book shops by the beginning of November. I can't describe how anxious I was while anticipating this order, but I can describe how I feel now: Awesome.

Also SPX is only a couple of weeks away! I have way too much work to do but I am fairly secure in my ability to squeeze it all in. Its horrifying but I gotta make it happen. I will be sharing a Table with fellow Xeric recipient and cartoonist extraordinaire J.T. Yost. Our Table number is W26B which seems suspiciously off to the side. Oh well. Viva la W26B.

Sequential Tart Interview

Hey, I got interviewed! By Sheena McNiel for Sequential Tart and here it is! I hope I don't sound like too much of a jerk. I would like to think I am not a jerk. At least not when it comes to comics. But to judge my jerkiness for yourself please read THIS and have a happy Monday.

PLAYBACK:stl Review!

Happy Friday Everyone!

One of these days I will post something that is neither review nor Deformitory related, but until that day here is another review, this time by Sarah Boslaugh for PLAYBACK:stl. She's given it a positive review (yay!) and offered up a new interpretation of Delores's lobster claws. Sarah speculates that it is a metaphor for the creative dilemma, one that feeds and betrays you, which I enjoy. :) This is coming on the heels of Rob Clough's interpretation that the claws can be seen as a metaphor for the nature of addiction. You can read Sarah's review HERE.

Also I got a shout out over at "Comics and ... Other Imaginary Tales" (here). Its not so much a review as a review of reviews? Whatever it is I appreciate the write up. :)

Enjoy your weekend, thanks for reading!

High-Low Review

Hey there young fellas!
Rob Clough has reviewed The Deformitory for his blog High-Low and he seemed to appreciate and enjoy it. He gives a thorough and accurate description of the plot and I have to say I happily agree with his criticism of my art work. Also I was reviewed alongside some artists I really admire as well as others I am looking forward to reading. Its the last in line about two thirds down the page right HERE. Go Summer Go Comics. xo

The Onion A.V. Club Comics Panel Review

Hullo All! The Deformitory has been reviewed in the A.V. Club's comics panel. I am pretty excited about this review becuase first of all they liked it and second of all The Onion and its sister site The A.V. Club have been my culture go to for many years now. The review can be read about 1/3 of the way down the page right HERE. Thanks for checking it out and thanks to anyone who is keeping up the good word about my book this month as August is a crucial juncture for The Deformitory to get orders. Have a great weekend!

Art Patient Review!

Happy Monday!

I have been reviewed by Delos Woodruff on his excellent website It's a very thoughtful review so check it out here. Also I think he's pro-heart monster.

Monday, August 3, 2009


Hello All!

Ok it is officially August which means that comics book shops across the nation have a copy of Diamond's August Previews featuring my comic book...that's right, you guessed it... The Deformitory! Needless to say this is a very exciting time for my book and also very important. If my comic gets enough orders then Diamond will pick it up and anyone can potentially swing by their favorite store and pick up a copy (provided that store ordered it). So if you support the book, mention it at your neighborhood comic shop, talk it up, drop a line about it on you blog, whatever. The more help it gets the better chance it's got and all this self-publishing rigmarole will not be in vain. Actually the experience thus far has been invaluable so it never really could be, but I really want The Deformitory to go all the way. So make sure your seller knows about it! Go Heart Monster!

(this is a brown heart monster I painted last week in walnut ink. Say "Hello")

Midnight Fiction Review!

Happy Sunday! Richard Krauss has reviewed The Deformitory for Midnight Fiction. Its a good one so give it a look see here and enjoy Richard's excellent site.

Friday, July 24, 2009




Hello all. I just felt like posting some art work today. So I dug these up. I did these as an exercise last winter and I was very happy with the result. Here's how you do it: draw as many panels as will fit on one page and then fill them up with anything. And don't stop until you are done. The End.
(Click the pictures for a better view.)

Optical Sloth Review!

Kevin Bramer of Optical Sloth has reviewed The Deformitory and here it is! for his site. The more reviews I get the more I realize that there are two schools of folk: people who dig the Heart Monster being included and those who find it superfluous. Kevin seems to dig him. Awesome.

Wednesday, July 22, 2009


Ok some people are having trouble scrolling through the piece on the TONY website so I am posting the jpeg of my Photo Finish feature here. You're welcome. hahaha.

Time Out New York Piece

Hello hello my gentle readers.
I am featured in Time out New York's East Village issue this week which is pretty exciting. I love it when my comics are in issues I'm most interested in (eg, The Free Issue, the East Village issue etc). My brother called this photo-finish the "most disturbing yet" and that, I believe, is a very good thing. Pick up a copy and/or check it out HERE!

Pop Damage Review

Hello All! I promise to post something related to new work very soon (hopefully later today) but for now here is a review from Andrew Wright of Pop Damage, a great on-line magazine. Read it HERE. :)

Comics Waiting Room Review!

Good Morning! Marc Mason has reviewed my book for his website Comics Waiting Room. You can read it here. I like the difference between my book's cover and the other he reviews in tandum with The Deformitory. My cover could not scream "INDIE!" enough. Anyways check it out.

Eye on Comics Review

I am pleased to share another review. Don MacPherson has read and written about The Deformitory on his wonderful site Eye on Comics. I have to admit this one makes me especially happy because Don has has been particularly sensitive to what I attempted to communicate in my comic.
Here it is.

Monday, July 6, 2009

Sequential Tart Review!

Sheena McNeil of Sequential Tart has been kind enough to review my book as well. Click here to read it!
She responded very well to my Heart Monster which I am happy about because he's not going anywhere any time soon. She is the latest of many people to feel the the ending is abrupt or sudden and left feeling as if there is more which I find interesting. Sometimes I wonder myself if I should continue winding the thread that is the Deformitory. For now I think not, but its an idea that has occurred to me before. More soon.

ComixTalk Review

Xaviar Xerexes of has reviewed my comic and it is here for your reading pleasure. I think it's very thoughtful and helpful for me personally and he seemed to like it as well. Check it out!

Monday, June 29, 2009


Well I had a good day today because it was spent almost entirely in front of my drawing table which makes me happy. The cherry on top of my hard work sundae however is the fact that I got a review as well. And I am happy to say its a good one by Andrea Speed for You can read it HERE.

Do you belong in New York? THE QUIZ!

I feel that the very fact that I took the, quiz at all is suspect, but I am procrastinating and have nothing better to blog about so here are my results:

Yes, but sometimes you wish there were a better option.

You do love New York, and you fit in here better than you have anywhere else. You're committed to the city, and you take advantage of all of its amazing food, culture, nightlife and arts. But you have nagging doubts about this relationship. Spend your whole life here? Not sure about that. Sometimes you wonder about that farm in your fantasies or even just a smaller city. But in reality, you know there's nowhere better. Click here for suggestions about how to really enjoy NYC.

Do you belong in New York City?

If you need to kill 15 minutes do the quiz. My advisor (I suppose I should now say former advisor?) David Heatley did the awesome illustration for it. Off to do something real! ha.

Official MoCCA Post

So MoCCA was really cool. Some personal highlights: Finally introducing myself to Gabrielle Bell. Also meeting Ron Rege Jr. And introducing myself to Evan Dorkin. Again! But I had a slightly more proper chat with him this time around. :)
I also got to see J.T. Yost fellow Xeric winner again. Check out his awesome work here and here. Also here is his books page: And I got to see Box Brown who I am also a huge fan of. I think that was it for Xeric peoples representing at MoCCA this year. If not, I am sorry I missed the others.
To be honest the new venue was very different from the Puck building. The Armory is really cool, don't get me wrong, but it definitely does not have the charm of the Puck. Plus it was just as unbearably warm as last year. I suppose it was a more democratic layout but it was also colder and more overwhelming in a way. It felt more "convention" than "festival". But I guess that is what happens when things get bigger. And MoCCA certainly seems to have exploded.
Regardless it still maintained its open and positive vibe and I am getting much better at introducing myself and just stepping up and talking about my work. Practice practice right? So yeah, MoCCA gets an A!
Festival updates: other than SPX this September I am plotting to show up and exhibit at APE this fall so anybody in San Fransisco let me know if you will be around in October. It would be my first foray into California. I'm really hoping it will work out.

Post MoCCA Glow and Link

I had a really good weekend at MoCCA and cannot wait to speculate upon it and post pictures. I promised to post the link to my Time Out piece so here it is:
Heather, I hope that's the one that made JG laugh. :)

Tuesday, June 2, 2009

Come to MoCCA and Pick up a Time Out!


I will be featured again in Time Out New York's Photo Finish feature this week. I think I may have said this last time, but I really like this one so take a peek either in the magazine itself or on-line. I will post the link in the next posting.

Also if you are in New York this weekend swing by the always amazing MoCCA Art Festival. I will be there with Dunja Jankovic, Anna Raff and Maria Sputnik. I am honored to be sharing a table with such talented women and it will be well worth it to check it out. We are at table 403. I am very excited (if not freaking out a little bit) about the convention this weekend. It is always a very rewarding experience and I hope to see you there!

Diamond Distribution!

I got distribution! OH MY GOODNESS! Maybe I should play this a little cooler. Ahem. Whatever, I am totally thrilled! More details to follow, as right now I am actually don't know entirely what this will entail or when my book will be in comic shops but I am very relieved. I hear self distribution can be a nightmare. WHOOO HOOOO!!!

Stumptown Comics Fest Part Duex

Ok, so this is the post to fill in the the blanks of the previous post. In terms of comics I have only ever exhibited a MoCCA Art Fest before and was not sure what so expect at Stumptown. I think the most enjoyable aspect was that I was sharing a table with people who actually lived in Portland and so it was a lot easier to converse with the the neighboring tables and make friends since everyone seemed to know everyone. The Portland comics scene is thriving and it was exciting to meet such a concentrated group of comics readers, artists, shop owners etc. To actually live among it must be a heady rush indeed. I think that while in New York there may be more comics people in general it is so spread out and there is no real core. What I perceived in Portland was that is was a very close and supportive community. I am sure you could say that about any thing when comparing NYC to Portland but it was nice to experience.

Here is a picture of what was to the right of our table; the awesome Floating World Comics table. Jason Leivian is the owner of this wonderful shop and yet another awesome person I met. Sean Christensen is the masked guy and he was also really cool. Read his comic Miranda Baby. Its bizarrely wonderful. Oh and that is Lisa again. It was good and overwhelming as those things should be and I hope I can swing it next year as well.

Stumptown Comics Fest Part One

Ok so by now I am sure everyone and their mother has blogged about their experience at Stumptown, if everyone and their mother did attend and have blogs. Seriously though, I was getting all mad at myself, thinking "This is gonna be old News Sophia if you don't get a'postin right now!" Then I remembered, I have no conclusive evidence that anyone beside my boyfriend has ever read this thing (and I was hovering over his shoulder at the time whispering "look look, I blogged") so I am letting myself off the hook. :) So without further ado here are some pictures of the festival.

Above is a picture of our table. Behind the table is comic artist Dunja Jankovic. I know its hard to tell with the mask. Anyways the poster you see is the poster for Komikaze, the amazing comics collective based out of Croatia. Check them out at Its is very good stuff. These people aren't effing around. Dunja stuff is on their site as well as her own,
So we had a lot of cool Balkan comics and international stuff in general. We also had the lovely Maria Sputnik's comics. Her book 44 Presidents is coming out this fall as well, so look out for it as it is hilarious. Here she is with Lisa Magnum making masks!

Lisa was amazing and largely responsible for the presence of the Komikaze comics as well as other Balkan comics and french publications. It was a good time over all. I especially just enjoyed meeting all the great people and artists there. I met Gail Simone and embarrisingly gushed about how she changed my life. Amd I met Chris Baldwin author of Little Dee and Bruno which was a thrill as well. I also sat a little down from The creator of Madman Mike Allred, but I was too shy to meet him. Hopefully I will remedy that if I ever do see him again. More Tomorrow.

Pick up Time Out New York!

Hey, I have to do a big Stumptown Comics Fest post, but I thought I would drop a TONY post first. Once again my work will be featured in Time Out's Photo Finish. I have a soft spot for firemen ever since my trip to Paris (long story) so I really enjoyed this one. It is already on-line so click the link to check it out or pick up a copy at you local bodega! LINK! XOXO!

Website update!

Thanks to the help of my good friend Eric Collins ( my website is now updated. I do have bigger plans for my site down the line, but right now I am soooo very very happy with it. So visit away at More soon!

Wednesday, April 1, 2009


Here they are! My new adorable 1 inch buttons. I'll be toting these suckers around for as long as supplies last. I fantasize that one day my ever evolving website will have a proper "shop" page where I could sell little bags of buttons amongst other things, though I think that's a ways off.
Anyways, I think little buttons are one of the happiest things on earth and I hope to hand you one. I should figure out how to make them myself, as I hear it is easy and fun, but for now I use an awesome company called Busy Beaver Button Co. If interested check them out at
Tomorrow, Stamping!

Love is a Peculiar Type of Thing

Hello! Ok, today I am pleased as punch to announce that my friend, and fellow Xeric Grant winner, Box Brown has announced that his book, is good to go! And by good to go I mean that Love is a Peculiar Type of Thing is printed and will be available in June at a comic book store near you. Here's the link:
Those of you from Philly may recognize his work for TLA Video store front on 4th and South. And those of you with excellent taste in web-comics should be reading Bellen! Its kind of one of my favorite things. Seriously, check it out. And make sure that your local shop is picking it up this summer. Go self-publishing!

Rubber Stamp

So one of my favorite things to do is think up merchandise to promote my comics and art work. I think that my cartoons actually lend themselves very well to merchandise (Stickers buttons etc). I am not always comfortable promoting myself, but this is a really fun way to do it, one that feels sweet and that I am comfortable with. Handing some one a button makes them happy and that makes me happy, and then everyone is soooo happy, and then maybe they get so happy that they give me a job. So in anticipation of the upcoming conventions I am in full on "cute crap" mode, ordering and making stuff to sell and hand out. One such item is a rubber stamp I am having made at Casey Rubber Stamps in the East Village. It is a great little store with all these cool old fashioned stamps and you can have one custom made for you based on whatever you want. I am having this guy made:

Heart Monster Mania! I am very excited. With this stamp I can make my own stickers, stationary, and match-books! Adorable and efficient. Just like Heart Monster himself.

Thursday, March 19, 2009

New Monster!

Meet the new monster, Dumgrop! And as always, Heart Monster. I thought up the former while talking to my boyfriend on the phone. I was staring at the wall. Jeeze I better start coming up with more interesting posts. haha. Whatever. Since when did I claim to know what I was doing?

Wednesday, March 18, 2009


Once again I will be featured in TONY this week in their Photo Finish Feature, so if anyone is interested you should pick up a copy. I really liked this one.
Something more fun to follow tomorrow.

Felt like posting a Heart Monster from my sketch book. So here he is. Say "hi!". See that wasn't so hard was it? You should always be polite. Even to monsters.

The Conventions!

Hello All,

For the last two years I have exhibited at MoCCA Festival, the Museum of Cartoon and comic Art's annual comic convention. This year I am pleased to say that I will again be exhibiting along side my friends and fellow artists Dunja Jankovic ( and Anna Raff ( and a potential fourth...keep tuned for updates. I am very excited as it is always a great weekend with fantastic people and panels. Check it out here. Oh and the picture is from MoCCA 2007 and those are my friends Matt and Eric (and that is what a table looks like when ten plus people try and exhibit on it).

New for me this year is Stumptown Comics Fest. I will be flying to Portland in April to exhibit there as well on the 18th and 19th. I've never been to Portland and I am excited to expose myself to the awesome scene that seems to thrive there. More later as the festivals roll around, but that's my convention schedule thus far!

My First Review

I am pleased to provide a link to my first review ever by Henry Chamberlain for Newsarama. :)
I have to admit that it is very strange to hear someone else talk about my work but kind of cool too.

Wednesday, February 11, 2009

Oh. My. God.

Be still my beating heart! Seriously this is the most exciting thing that has ever happened to me. Ok I exaggerate. However, what is this site about? Me drawing comics. And pray tell how did I become injected with the passion to draw comics? From reading comics. And how did I discover at the tender age of twelve the joy of reading comic books? One show is responsible for those first forays into the world of comics, beyond the funny pages of my youth and that show was The X-Men animated series. No not the revamped crap they thought up recently, but that early nineties gem of a show. It captured my pre-teen heart and probably has had a deeper impact than I realize. Anyways they are releasing the entire run on DVD April 28th and well, I'm beside myself. Check it.

Beet It!

This has nothing to do with comics or monsters but here is a beet I painted for a friend. I think it looks luscious so I decided to share.

Monday, February 9, 2009


I've been called sensitive more times than I care to remember. I have been told I take things too personally. I won't deny that this is all true. For instance just the other day I tried to rip my horoscope out of a magazine because I found it insulting. However anyone who knows me knows that of all the things that piss me off and "get my goat" the surest way to make me see red is to call me "Sophie". No offense to any one named Sophie. It is a very pretty name, but its just not my name. I know its a silly thing to get excited about but I do. Its something I haven't been able to let go of yet. Maybe I should try harder. See below. har.

or here.

Tuesday, February 3, 2009

Just in case anyone is interested you should pick up a copy of Time Out New York this week. They have a feature called Photo Finish where they ask illustrators to finish reader submitted photographs, and I did this weeks. Its always fun, and you should check it out!

Xeric Etc.


So far I am not doing a very good job at the whole blogging thing mostly because I am finding it hard to get used to the notion of anybody being interested in what I write, especially since I know that no one is really even aware of my blog. However, I am attempting to embrace the concept of unabashed self-promotion and steady self-confidence...all in the spirit of comics, art, and monsters. So here goes:

I am happy to announce that I found out last December that I am a recipient of a Xeric Foundation Grant for my graphic novel/masters thesis "The Deformitory". I applied for the grant last fall and needless to say I am thrilled and consider this excellent news for "The Deformitory" as well as my current endeavors. So getting "The Deformitory" printed up is what occupies my efforts as of late and I am excited to send it off to the printer this week.

More soon. <3
