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.

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?

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.

Heart Monster

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 (tripica.org) and Anna Raff (annaraff.com) 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!
