On Saturday I’ll be tabling all by my lonesome at Comic Arts Brooklyn! First time tabling in my own name at this fine show. I’ll have the usual fare: books, comics, and possibly a print or two. I’ll be at Table I18! It’s free to the public, so come on out!
Meanwhile, on the internet…here’s Johnny Cash from my Inktober Country Music Portrait Series still going strong over at Instagram! Only two more portraits to go! I’ve been enjoying them a lot, but I am SO looking forward to completing this project so I can go on a Social Media break for most of November! I love these self imposed disciplines, but the social media engagement has its costs! Artistically, I need an internet break and bad! So here’s to it!
Hope to see you at CAB!!

I got to do 23 portraits of 4th graders for The New York Times Magazine‘s All Comics Kid’s Section in today’s print edition of the Sunday New York Times. It was a labor of love! Go get your hands on this amazing issue–so many beautiful stories!
I have a new comic up at Spiralbound. It’s an ode to Gus’ Kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Mc. Thank you to teachers everywhere! You help children find their places in the world!
It’s that time of year again…the legs of death are upon you!
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!
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!
Another dream come true! Spoiler: she’s amazing! Go see it on The New Yorker site!
