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.

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.

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.

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
