DiNK 2019 - Table 307!

Tue 4/9/2019

This weekend (April 13th & 14th) I will be exhibiting at the Denver Independent Comics and Art Expo (aka DiNK). You'll find me up on the third floor at table 307. I'll of course have all my Phase 7 and Phase 8 wares for sale, and I'll also be representing The Center for Cartoon Studies, and doing my best to promote the Isle of Elsi Kickstarter. This convention is the first time I've ever been invited to be a special guest, so I'm extra excited for this show!

It's going to be a busy weekend! In addition to selling comics at my table, I'll also be participating in three panels. I'll list all the info below, in case any attendees want to come check these out - they should be a lot of fun!

The Center for Cartoon Studies Alumni Roundtable - Saturday, April 13th @ 4:45pm in the Eisner Nook. I will be moderating this discussion with CCS alums Anna Sellheim, Bridget Comeau and Melanie Gillman!

Fun for All Ages: Creating Content in an Adult-Oriented Industry - Sunday, April 14th @ 12:45pm in the Eisner Nook. This panel will be moderated by Dan Crosier, and I will be discussing this topic along with Elisa Sargent, Faith Erin Hicks, and Chad Sell.

Workshop: Pirates and Dragons! - Sunday, April 14th @ 3:00pm in the The Creative Space. Aaron Renier and I will be running this workshop for kids. Come draw some dragons with me!!!

If you are in the Denver area, do not miss this show! There are going to be hundreds of amazing indie cartoonists all in one spot. It's gonna be an absolute blast.

The Isle of Elsi Book One Kickstarter is LIVE!

Tue 4/2/2019

For the last three years I have been working super hard on my free fantasy adventure webcomic for kids, Isle of Elsi.

Today I launched a Kickstarter campaign to collect the first three stories into a 144-page hardback book.

I'm so excited to finally get these comics into book form so that it's easier to share them with my intended audience... kids!

The stories are in the same vein as Basewood, but lighthearted, with more jokes and a much nicer dragon :) There's also wizards, magic, talking wolves and lots of silly wordplay.

I'm just one person trying to reach this big goal, so I appreciate any and all help spreading the word about this project. Thanks for checking it out!

My old pal Aaron Renier and I are both special guests at this year's Denver Independent Comics and Art Expo (aka DiNK), so we thought it would be fun to put together a little tour in New Mexico before we head on up to Denver.

Aaron will be promoting his new graphic novel The Unsinkable Walker Bean and the Knights of the Waxing Moon and I'll be promoting Shorts, the seventh collection of my minicomic Phase 7, which is hot off the press.

Since I colored both of Aaron's Walker Bean books, we're going to kick off our signings with a short presentation about how we collaborated in the creation and coloring of Aaron's swashbuckling, high-seas adventure series. We'll then hang out, answer questions and sign books.

  • On Wednesday April 10th we'll be at Big Adventure Comics
    in Santa Fe, NM from 5-7pm.
  • On Thursday April 11th we'll be at Lobo Comics
    in Albuquerque, NM from 5-7pm.
  • On April 13th and 14th, we'll be at DiNK all weekend long. We're going to be leading a "Pirates Vs. Dragons" workshop, and I'm slated to be on a panel about all-ages comics and to host a CCS alumni panel.

If you live close to one of these events, please swing by and say hello! They are going to super fun. See you out there on the road...
