What I have been up to?

So I have a whole back log of news and information and goings on.

First of all, I am very excited to share that I am now a featured cartoonist on Top Shelf 2.0. The first "Lettuce Girl" is posted in its entirety so go visit the site and give it gander if you haven't seen a copy yet.

Second of all, I have done a couple of "Photo Finish" assignments for Time Out New York since I last posted. You can see them here and here.

Now it is Fall and a new round of conventions has begun. SPX was a couple of weekends ago and tons of fun, as I was sharing a table with my friend J.T. Yost. As always, it is such a pleasure spending the weekend with talented peers and interested and informed readers. I attended two good panels, both moderated by the venerable Bill Kartalopoulos. One was a talk with one of my greatest heroes Jamie Hernandez and the other an enlightening conversation on teaching comics, which dealt with comics in academia. I had the pleasure of running into and catching up with cartoonists such as L. Nichols, Nate Bulmer, Brendan Leach, Box Brown, Jesse Reklaw, amongst others. I had a lot of great photo ops, but I forgot my camera so I am gonna steal this picture of the last moments of the convention off of J.T.'s blog:

That's J.T. and his wonderful little family. They are beautiful people.

I also got to meet Xavier Xerexes who runs the fantastic site ComixTalk and who reviewed The Deformitory last year. He is great guy and did cool short sets of interviews with creators all over the show. If you want to see mine go watch it here. I think I pulled it off with minimal awkwardness.

And lastly the page for the upcoming exhibit Ink Plots is now up on the SVA website. So check it out for any and all information. I hope to see some of you at the reception.

I think that's it for now, I have some more stuff in works so stay tuned for more comics and comics news!
