TRAVEL!

Apr 15th, 2014

Are you in Houston? I’ll be in Houston. April 26th, for Teen Book Con. Panel/signing schedule here. Unfortunately, due to some dubious planning, This One Summer will NOT be available for purchase (pub date is May 5), although we will have some to give away/show. Other books will be available.

Complete, updated list of all book tour events––SF, Berkeley, Toronto, NYC, DC––is here. [Ignore the entry for April 25th. I don’t know what’s up with that and I hope it eventually just goes away.]

Status Update

Aug 14th, 2012

Hello, I hope you’re having a nice summer. Here is what’s going on with me:

♪ My webcomic SuperMutant Magic Academy was nominated for an Ignatz award! You can vote for the awards if you attend SPX next month. Unfortunately I won’t be there though. SPX was the *first comic convention I had ever attended as either an visitor or exhibitor* in 2006, so I have a soft spot for it.

♫ I was in London in early June, during the Queen’s Jubilee.

♪ I was in Oslo where I walked in the woods with famous cartoonists.

♪ Continuing with the famous cartoonist theme: ICON conference, Providence, RI.

♫ I have a new piece in the newest Nobrow collection (7). You can buy it here. [If you’re an American, I think you might have to wait a few more days.] Below, the cover (not by me) and my 4 page comic.

♫ ONGOING: I’m plugging away on my giant graphic novel, Awago Beach Babies. Here is a pile of evidence.

♪ Enjoy the dog days ~

Oslo Comics Expo!

May 28th, 2012

Watch out, Eurozone. I’m going to the Oslo Comics Festival with some Drawn + Quarterly folks in early June. The schedule is here; I’ll be on panels on Friday (9PM) and Saturday (1PM and 3PM).

The studio will be closed May 29-June 10.

Art Center Talk

Oct 2nd, 2011

I’m speaking at Art Center this month for the school’s “Illustration Mandatory Meeting”. You are MANDATED to watch me flap my gums, dear illustration students! Unfortunately, I don’t think this is open to the public, but perhaps there are some non-illustration students who would be interested in coming too.
