Paper Pencil Life #6 Now Available!

May 15, 2019


Happy to announce that Paper Pencil Life #6 is now available for purchase in the shop!! Hooray!! I’m really proud with how this baby came out–it’s the first issue with color in it!

More shop news:

To make room for the new, I have decided to discontinue Paper Pencil Life #2. If you haven’t got a copy and want the humble beginnings of my life in comics, now would be the time to get it!

After a brief run out after MoCCA, my travel diary form 2015, SOUVENIRS, is back in stock! Get ’em while you can!

All The Sad Songs is nominated for an Eisner!

April 29, 2019


I cannot believe I am saying this, but All The Sad Songs has been nominated for an Eisner Award in Best Reality-Based Work! I am OVER THE MOON with excitement! This is a HUGE honor in the comics world–in fact, it doesn’t get any bigger! It is such a big deal that I figured the judges wouldn’t even bat an aye at my little indie book and so the nominations weren’t even on my radar. It was a shock and I’m still reeling from it! I am thrilled for me, but also really happy for my publisher, Retrofit, who work on a shoestring and complete faith in the cartoonist’s vision. Here’s to them!

The Eisners are nominated through a group of judges, but awards are given out through votes. If any of you are a cartoonist, reader, seller, etc. and feel moved to vote for my book, I would be SO grateful! You can do so here! Please note, you will have to register in order to vote. Voting closes June 14, 2019 at Midnight PST!

Now I am going to celebrate by getting back to work! Hooray!
