And it has been something like a year since I made a new comic! Maybe? It feels like it. I have spent much of that year trying to put together a story that is not like anything I’ve done before and I’m very excited about it. That project has asked from me a good deal of research and preparation, planning, and thinking. I’m taking my time and it’s paid off so far. But that also means I have nothing for you to read. So! Over the past three weeks I have had my head down, drawing flowers for you.
Yes, flowers! For you! I shouldn’t have!
The flowers are drawn inside the panels of a new minicomic ready just in time for CAKE in Chicago this weekend. Above is from the section on the kadupul flower, and to the left is a sunflower, dummy. Fear of Flowers is three short meditations on flowers, change, and death.
I will be selling my wares at Table 60 at CAKE alongside Cara Bean and Kenan Rubenstein. Cara and I have been tabling together regularly with fresh flowers. I now have a comic to justify these mysterious flowers. Now you know – it was viral marketing this whole time.
Come to CAKE. Read about flowers. It’s springtime.
