Ignatz Nomination! Denmark!

Sun 8/25/2019

Last week I found out that my middle grade fantasy webcomic Isle of Elsi was nominated for the 2019 Ignatz Awards in the Outstanding Online Comic category!

It is such an honor to be nominated! I was three years into Phase 7 when I was nominated for the Outstanding Minicomic Ignatz Award, and now this nomination comes three years into working on Isle of Elsi. It's an incredible feeling to get this validation from the comics community after all the hard work I have poured into it.

I've read all of the other nominees' comics, and it is such a wonderful cross-section of what's going on in today's comics scene. Below are links to all of their work - I really recommend checking them out:

If you will be at the Small Press Expo on Saturday, September 14th, please consider picking up a ballot and voting for Isle of Elsi. Unfortunately I will not be able to attend the show, as I will be teaching overseas....

I've been asked back to teach at The Animation Workshop's Graphic Storytelling program in Viborg, Denmark. I'll be teaching a two week unit on autobio comics which is going to be a lot of fun.

It's going to be hard to be away from my family for so long, but I know Claire will do great with the girls and she will have lots of help from her family and also superfriend Liz Prince who is coming out specifically to help with the kids.

It's shaping up to be a very busy fall, but everything that's going on is pretty amazing, so I'm not complaining!
