Hey everyone I’m doing a free artist talk at the International School of Comics on September 10th! Its going to be about self publishing and ways to kind of sort of make it in the industry. I can only talk about my own experience, but I have been surviving off self published comics and art (for the most part) for almost a year now, so I might tell you something you don’t already know.
The workshop will take the form of an artist talk, following by questions and answers. Topics include: my experience in self publishing, ways to get your work out there, ways to supplement your comics income with other art related work, ways to stay true to yourself as an artist while still making a living, and tips for proposing large scale projects.
Depending on time and number of participants, after the talk I am hoping to walk around and talk to people about personal projects, so bring work or proposals if you have them!
This is totally free you guys. If for nothing else, come to watch me pretend I don’t get nervous talking in front of people.
Speculative Relationships meetup!!!
The amazing and elusive Rinko Endo was in town (from JAPAN) tonight! We got the crew together for drinks, drawing, and good times. Rinko, Dan, Izzy, Scott, and Tyrell shared some laughs and reviewed eachothers stories for the first time. We are So Pumped for y’all to see this book!
Sadly, Mike Mano was in California, but joined us in spirit.
Just finished a short comic for Paul Walker’s upcoming macrophilia anthology! It’s very and angry and bitter and it really drives the point home that a breakup could be worse. At least you didn’t grow 70 feet tall in an ill-advised attempt at revenge and wander into a forest pursued by a swarm of military helicoptors. All things considered it probably wasn’t that bad… probably.
More information on the anthology at a later date!
Anonymous asked: hi!! i was just wondering if u let/would consider letting someone get a tattoo of ur art? xx
Hey there! Yes I would be okay with that… on one condition! You have to give up the Anonymous sunglasses and send me a photo of it when it’s done!
Also thank you for asking I would really love to see it.
