I hope you can come! The first two stops, TCAF and Zinefeast, have been a dream. I’ve been wanting to plan this out for years, and I’m super jazzed that we’re all putting it together.
Mega big thanks to: Get Lucid! (Pete, Miguel, Erica), Anna Bongiovanni and Ashley von Burg, Brendan Leach, Brad Pearson, Sam Sharpe, Barb Schulz, Mark Harwood-Jones and his house, the TCAF staff and volunteers, Olivia Fox and the Zinefeast crew, Rae Billstein, and all of the venues.
I’ll be at table 111 on the first floor at the Toronto Comics Arts Fest this weekend. You can find everyone else here. I recommend 2D Cloud, Sam Alden, Ivan Brunetti, Lilli Carré, Edie Fake, Lisa Hanawalt, the Hernandez bros., Hic & Hoc, Uncivilized Books (Tom Kaczynski), Retrofit Comics (Box Brown), Eric Kostiuk-Williams, Koyama Press, Lucy Knisley, Saicoink, & Joe Quinones, among others. Have fun!
Omg guys, edible fliers! Eat zine! #ZINEFEAST

Can’t wait to be at Zinefeast on Sunday at SUNY Purchase. I do a panel with Olivia Horvath & Anna Anthropy (I am literally dreaming) at 3pm. It’s the first stop of my tour.
Hey all, here’s “Sunday comics” (click the image to enlarge), my bookmark for Quimby’s Bookstore. I’ll be doing a reading & signing there on 5/25 @ 7p (FB link) with my friend & sometime collaborator Sam Sharpe.
I was thinking of making a print of this for TCAF and the tour. Would anyone buy a $5 print of this drawing?
I felt like leaving this image really sparse and open, but I wanted to fit big stacks of comics & zines on here. I only got Chicago’s Laura Park and Lilli Carré, but here’s what I wanted to throw in there:
Wet Moon / Gaylord Phoenix / Shotgun Seamstress / Fix My Head / QTZ / Rot Zine / Peanuts (with Peppermint Patty on the cover) / SuperMutant Magic Academy / Fucking Trans Women / Rocket Queen
Goofy outtakes from publicity shots that Adria-Leeper Sullivan took for the upcoming tour poster. The poster is basically an analog Blingee. Thanks to Adria, to Sam Gan for doing edits, and to Locust Moon for hosting us!
HI FRIENDS WE GOT EVENTS LISTED «««<( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
This is the ~new poster~ w/updated exhibitors, “facts” and Afterfeast lineup.
Can’t wait to table at this. I’ll be doing a panel/reading at 3p, “Focus on Queer Women” with Anna Anthropy, and one of my fave artists and my friend, Olivia Horvath.

(dear other people: Sam Alden’s comics are pretty to look at. I suggest looking at them.)
