I’m sorry I’ve neglected this site for too long! You see, Tumblr is a much easier platform to post entries to, and also provides a good method of feedback. So find me there, if you can! But I really should keep this website updated with the main events, don’t you agree?
First of all, SF#1 is temporarily out of stock, as of this writing. I’m in the middle of reprinting and assembling a new batch. It’s almost done, so I’m taking orders again, but I can’t ship them for about 1 week. If that’s okay with you, then by all means please order a fresh copy!
I’m currently drawing SF#2. It should be done before the next convention, which looks to be MOCCA Festival in NY, this April. Closed Caption Comics will be there. I won’t be able to attend, but Conor and Molly will be there with several of their own new books in addition to all my most recent zines. I’m reluctant to post pages from SF#2, because the non-spoilery stuff requires the most tinkering. Okay, okay, here are a couple panels, but no guarantees they’ll be in the finished product!!
This winter I published a 3-part minicomic called SF Supplementary File #2. It’s an ode to Matsumoto Leiji and is kinda a part of the SF “universe,” or it will be. This was an adventure in printmaking, with over a dozen different colors used throughout the 3 books. This is one of my favorites, from the center spread in SFSF#2 C:
I recently answered questions in 2 different interviews. I wrote emails back and forth with Mark P. Hensel, an Austin-based cartoonist who I’ve seen on the net for a long time. We are both “process nerds” so if you read the conversation that came out of those emails you can learn a little bit about my totally analog printmaking process. Click through to his site:
I also spoke to Ao Meng of NOVI Magazine. He is a student at U of Texas and he writes a comics column for their newspaper. NOVI is a very good web project about comics. I think they’ll be hosting or publishing comics somehow digitally in the future, but for now they’re a great site to follow for (alt-)comic interviews and discussion. Read all about it here.
Finally, I submitted my comics for critique by the guys at Deconstructing Comics. They gave me some good feedback on SF#1 and SF SF#1. I don’t know why you should listen to this, but I was very excited to hear strangers laugh at the jokes that I drew. :)
See you until next time!
