Today is the release date of Dog's Breakfast by Nicole J. Georges. I published and edited this 492-page collection of Nicole's diary comics through my Phase Eight Publishing imprint. It collects a dozen issues of her long-running zine Invincible Summer and includes over 100 pages of diary comics that have never seen print from Nicole's archives.

Isle of Elsi Book Two back cover quote by Luke Pearson

This morning in a Kickstarter update I revealed the quote that will adorn the back cover of Isle of Elsi Book Two, by Luke Pearson:

“In a world full of fantastical worlds for children, there is nothing exactly like Isle of Elsi. It’s on one hand a world of friendly faces and bright colours, making it an immediately welcoming comic for young readers to explore on their own. On the other hand, the wordplay, attention to detail and refusal to oversimplify make it an ideal world for kids and adults to explore together. Presenting everything in crystal clear cartooning with a satisfying indie comic charm, Alec Longstreth has crafted a timeless children’s saga; a world of sincerity and community as well as dragons and adventure. And it’s a world I believe readers will want to revisit time and time again.” – Luke Pearson, Hilda and the Mountain King
(Thanks, Luke) -Alec

Luke is one of my favorite creators, so it really means a lot to me to receive this thoughtful quote about my work from him. If you have never read any of his Hilda books, you should check them out! They are some of my favorite comics ever, and it has been such a joy sharing them with my kids.


The Isle of Elsi Book Two Kickstarter is now LIVE!!!

The goal for this project is to print the second book collection of my award-winning, Eisner-nominated webcomic, Isle of Elsi! It's a fun, all-ages, fantasy comic with dragons, wizards, talking wolves and lots of silly wordplay. They are the best comics I've ever made!

I'm offering lots of print reward tiers including copies of Book One, an activity book, and comic books!

My amazingly talented wife, Claire Sanders, has created some incredible 9" plush toys of the "ite" characters, as well as two 13" Nogard the Dragon plush toys!

Please check out the Kickstarter page for more info, and I would appreciate it so much if you could help me spread the word about this campaign! Below are social media posts that can be easily shared!

And all of the images above can be downloaded in this google drive folder, if you would like to share any of them with your friends and family. Thanks so much for your help! Together we can make this book a reality!


About a month after I illustrated the poster for weezer's Indie Rock Roadtrip summer tour I was hired by weezer to help create the concert visuals for all their performances this summer. I illustrated 711 assets and animated 99 loops which were then composited together, animated, and plussed by the incredibly talented team at SRND Studios in Brooklyn, NY under the direction of Brian Palmer and Brad Palmer.

Also the stage design for this show was directly based on the cover art for the It’s Been So Long weezer fan club single which I illustrated back in 2019 with lots of reference help from Karl Koch. Obviously, working on these tour visuals was a dream job for me! I worked hard to put in a ton of easter eggs and deep weezer lore for hardcore fans. I hope everyone has fun rocking out this summer! The photos above are from the first night of the tour in Alabama, taken by weezer fan club member Britton Wade.

Some folks have been asking me "Wow, how'd you get that gig?" so I put together this weezer page on my illustration site, documenting the past 13 years of projects I've done for weezer and the weezer fan club. You can also check out my book weezer fan which goes into great detail about how I went from fan to working with the band.
