More MoCCA follow up and Time Out New York


First off, pick up a time out this week and grab a peek at the photo finish. I love it when the photo is black and white. The finished product always looks so nice in print. The link to the website is empty for some reason so I am posting it here:

In other news I got into Columbia! Well I didn't, but The Deformitory did. My humble thesis is now part of the graphic novel collection at Columbia University in the Butler Library. Here is an article about the collection by Karen Green who started it back in 2005. Getting to meet her was one of the highlights of MoCCA for me.

Want some photographic evidence that people are reading The Lettuce Girl Pt. 2? Well, look no further! Here the lovely Helena looks through my latest comic. Beautiful women everywhere agree: It is legible, if not edible.

MoCCA Review & Etsy Update

Well, another year, another MoCCA. And this one was quite a knock out. It went by so fast my head was spinning. There was a great crowd and great exhibitors and just a lot of fantastic energy and comics love all weekend long. I ♥ the MoCCA Comic Festival in a major way. I saw my favorite people, met some new great people, and scored some sweet books.

There I am signing a copy of my latest comic "The Lettuce Girl Pt. II". For those of you who couldn't make it to the show, but want (need/desire/can't live without) a copy, you can now order it on-line at my Etsy shop HERE. I also have onesies and underwear up for sale. Cute, cheap, adored by all.

As always after a big show like this I spend some time disoriented and sort of empty feeling after it is all done. For the past four months I feel as if every cell in my body has been primed towards this one goal: write, draw and bind "The Lettuce Girl" and now that it's done I barely know what to do with myself. And then I remember, oh wait here comes the other part of self-publishing: the distribution, the reprinting, the e-mailing and general administrative hooplah. Good thing I kind of like this part too. Also I may be attending APE out in California this fall which would make October my new deadline for the third installment. Can I get a what what?
