I didn’t realize I haven’t mentioned that if you weren’t fortunate enough to be the winning bidder on my original art for the Gulf Coast benefit auction, you can buy a limited edition print for just $10! Each 11×14 print is signed and numbered and quite the looker.
I hope you’re coming to New England Webcomics Weeekend this weekend! Last year’s was 98% awesome and now they’ve decided to add an additional 2%; it was kind of controversial and went back in forth in committee for a while, but they were able to compromise and promise 100% awesome this year. My wife Rebecca and I will be there with TopatoCo, so come and meet webcomics fans and creators and buy stuff!
Speaking of buying stuff, the recently release volume of Inbound by the Boston Comics Roundtable is now available in Boston-area comic shops. I have a comic about food inside, and others also have comics about food, making this a food-themed issue. It wasn’t really planned that way but that’s how it turned out. What are the odds? If you don’t live in Boston, you can purchase a copy online.
That is enough plugs I think. Enjoy November! The temperatures and temperaments have been changing with the leaves, and I have been baking a lot of cookies instead of drawing a lot of comics. If I could put these cookies online, I promise I would share them with all of you.
My wife Rebecca and I recently collaborated on a comic about her bento boxes for the fifth volume of Inbound, an anthology series put together by the Boston Comics Roundtable. This volume features stories about FOOD. It’s a fun collection with a great variety of tones and styles! If you like food in your comics (not on them), you should order a copy from the BCR website. And when you’re done reading, you can tear it up and put it in your compost bin, where it can end up in your garden and turn into actual food.
I’m excited to be able to say I am exhibiting at MICE: the Massachusetts Independent Comics Expo this Saturday, September 25! This is the first show in Boston devoted to small press/indie comics, and I’m sure if things go well and enough people attend, it will be the start of a great tradition. Boston deserves an event like this and I hope it turns into something big and awesome. So please come! Admission is free, from 10am-6pm, at the Art Institute of Boston, 700 Beacon Street in Kenmore Square. More info here.
