I debut three books. The magic number.
- Screentests, 32 pages, 4x6”, contains two stories, “Pictures of Candy Darling” and “Body Language.”
- Cut from the same press sheet (see photo #2), Blue Blue Blues, tiny 32-pager, likely the smallest comic you have ever seen. Revamped version of a 2008 story. Both Riso-printed by Grace Ambrose.
- Emily Carroll, letterer John Workman (also at the fest), & I did a story called “This Witch’s Work” for the Vertigo one-shot anthology The Witching Hour, shown here with the cover by Jenny Frison. Nine stories in 80 pages, includes work by Sloane Leong, Cliff Chiang, and more. This marked my second time collaborating with another artist and my first time just writing (as opposed to doing layouts). Emily & John were a dream to work with (duh) as was editor Greg Lockard. Thanks to all three of you.
- I’ll also have my Henson comic Stitching Together with new sewn binding, a copy of The Graphic Canon vol. 3 anthology that I’m in, cheap prints, free bookmarks that I drew for Quimby’s, and I will do sliding scale $5-25 sketch portraits.
- You also get a tiny portrait or drawing of something else, if you’d like one, on the inside of any book of mine you would buy.
I would also really appreciate your business / support at the moment more than ever, really. If you feel like paying more than the cover price for an item, as an extra donation, that would really help me out.
The entrance to the fest is donation-based. You’ll also get to see Ron Wimberly (who I’ve never seen him at a con before, so that’s exciting), Farel Darymple (who sold $2 sketches from his scratch pile last year), Kim Deitch, Todd Klein, Box Brown & Retrofit Comics, Czap Books & Kevin Czap (carrying books by Cathy G. Johnson & one of my faves, Liz Suburbia, among others), Sacred Prism (who publishes among others, one of my 2013 faves, Maré Odomo’s Internet Comics), some of the Meathaus folks, and a bunch more. There will be coffee and food available from local vendors.
