This is a goofy little mini-comic I dashed off earlier this summer while teaching a comics class for 12-year-olds. A lot of my comics aren’t kid-friendly, but it turns out one thing that 12-year-olds and I have in common is an obsessive interest in dogs.
It’s bittersweet to think about SpringCon (and FallCon) right now, after the recent, untimely death of Dominic Postiglione, “driving force behind the Midwest Comic Book Association.” I really can’t articulate how unique and welcoming the MN comics scene is, and Dominic was a huge part of that.
The very first time I ever tabled with my comics was at The Source, where Dominic was a partner. The amount of enthusiasm and effort he put into his work there, and with SpringCon and FallCon (both entirely volunteer-run shows, with zero table fee, and a free lunch) is astounding. It’s hard to imagine not having him there this October, but I’m grateful for all that he gave to us MN cartoonists, and grateful that I got to know him however briefly.
Made a gooby—er, goofy birthday card for a friend.
Here’s one of the comics from Mailings, the collection of mail-themed mini-comics I made last winter while living in Savannah. This one’s about my mom.
I’m so happy to finally be able to share this! On June 21, my friend Maia married a really great guy named Charlie. She asked me to make this map/infographic of their relationship as a surprise wedding gift for him. The last two images are early sketches I emailed to Maia. The photos are of the final result!
Yoga card for the cool SCAD yoga teacher whose classes I enjoyed, even though I have zero flexibility, or experience with yoga.
Here’s a short comic I made about my experience attending Fluke in Athens, GA this spring. I was fortunate enough to receive a travel grant, established in honor of Jeremy Mullins, to help finance the trip.
