SPX (I will not be there) & CXC (I will be there) 2022

I had originally planned to be at The Small Press Expo this September 17 and 18 in Bethesda, Maryland. Unfortunately, due to various family considerations, it will not be possible for me to attend. Thankfully my old comics pal Greg Means has generously offered to hawk a few of my comics from his Tugboat Press table (D2). It goes without saying that SPX is one of the very best indie comics shows around. If you are in the area, you should definitely check it out! There are going to be so many amazing cartoonists there, especially since it will be the first in-person show in three years! I hope everyone has a great time.

I still plan on exhibiting at Cartoon Crossroads Columbus October 6-9 in Columbus, Ohio. I'll have lots of Phase 7 and Isle of Elsi comics for sale, as well as some Phase 8 Publishing titles. On Sunday 10/9 from 3-4pm I will also be co-hosting a "Webcomics 101" panel with A. "Junior" Vigorito. It's been five years since I was last at CXC, so I'm very excited to return to this great show! If you are in or around Ohio you should swing by! In addition to all the great cartoonists who will be there, there are also exhibits and tours at the one-of-a-kind Billy Ireland Cartoon Library and Museum!

Twenty years ago today I took my vow to "Draw Comics EVERY Day." I made the video above to commemorate two decades of this practice! It features all of my hand-drawn calendars that I use to log my comics progress, as well as some photos documenting all the different places I drew these comics. There are also some "stats" at the end.

Deciding to draw comics every day was one of the smartest things I ever did! Not only did it help me stay productive as a cartoonist, it also enabled me to become a part of the worldwide comics community, making lifelong friends with other cartoonists and interacting with hundreds of wonderful readers over the years.

You can read all of my comics for free online, download $0+ ebooks, or order physical copies at these sites:


I am very much looking forward to the next twenty years of "Draw Comics EVERY Day!"

Introduction to Hand-Drawn Animation summer workshop at CCS

This summer I will be teaching my Introduction to Hand-Drawn Animation workshop at The Center for Cartoon Studies in Vermont, July 18-22. This will be my seventh time teaching this workshop, and I'm very excited to return to in-person teaching - It'll be good to hear the sound of flipping paper fill a classroom again!

I put together this short video to give people an idea of what is covered in this intensive one-week workshop! You can also learn more about the workshop and see samples of past-student work on the workshop page.
