I am excited to share the news that my comics will be featured in Ink Plots: The Tradition of the Graphic Novel at SVA, a show devoted to the graphic narratives of alumni. I am thrilled to be in this exhibit as I will be alongside some amazing artists. Check back for more details later in the summer. For now here are the basic details:

Lettuce Girl Review

I was very happy to see today that my book The Lettuce Girl Pt. 1 was reviewed by Rob Clough for The Comics Journal. Reading his review got me excited about the work I am doing on the next installment and that is a very good thing. The more it develops the more eager I am to share the rest of the story with readers. You can read his very thoughtful review at TCJ right here.

Also I set up my Etsy shop. I just put up my comics for now, but ladies under wear and baby clothes are soon to follow. Please check it out and browse my humble inventory.

And here is an illustration of a lady in a turtle neck without a head. I can't say I don't relate a little right now. Have you ever been at once overwhelmed and terrified yet amazingly motivated and positive? Let me know if you've experienced this seemingly contradictory set of emotions all at the same time. It's a strange brew.

What is Up.

Dear Blog Readers,

I have been away for a while and before I was away I was swamped, but, as usual, that doesn't mean that stuff wasn't going down. Here's the short list:

First of all I am proud to post the first Lettuce Girl review. Sheena McNeil reviewed it for Sequential Tart and I am glad to report she sounds interested enough to want to read more. Link to it here.

Also check out this belated, but much appreciated Deformitory review courtesy of Johanna Draper Carlson of Comics Worth Reading. It is the third one down.

I also wanted to share the last two "Photo Finish" features I have done for Time Out New York. On June 3rd a dog centric one, and in May I managed to work a baby into a strip here.

In Convention News I will be attending SPX this September on the 11th and 12th in Bethesda, Maryland . Not so coincidentally that it also the date of my official deadline for The Lettuce Girl Pt. 2. I am sharing a table with J.T. Yost like last year and I am very excited.

We will also be exhibiting together at King Con in Brooklyn this Fall, November 4-7th. For more info go to the website here.

I think that's in for updates and developments. Otherwise I am hard at work roughing out the new installment of The Lettuce Girl and plotting my life in general.
