I have a habit that when I meet someone new that I’m really excited about, that I want to tell another person who made me feel really excited, so I’m writing a letter (initially) to tell you about this person, but also to tell you (you!) that you are such a great person to me. Do you get that, the intrepid desire to document a crush, crush being someone who excites you and you want to know more about, not necessarily a lustful thing? The need to write and create about this jar lid popping open with possibility?
People are so interesting, aren’t they? You’re so special to me _____, I feel so tenderly and sweet towards you. I like that you are a creator from a kind + honest place. That’s my favorite kind of person, the people who work + create, then share. I don’t worry about you because I know you’ll always be killing it. I have a predilection towards concern. Maybe it has a relationship with neediness. Possibilities open up when you have a crush, huh? Like the world feels endless. It is otherworldly and good.
How are you doing? Last time we spoke you were considering moving. Is that still on the horizon for you? I’m lying in bed writing this on a clipboard. It’s nice, cozy. I hope you are doing well, _____. I hope you are writing + playing basketball + making music. I hope you are happy. I hope your possibilities are limitless.
“Her Name Was Prudence” sold out at SPX, and is now hitting its second run. The show was wonderful, and I was completely flabbergasted that I ran out. So the 2nd Edition is forthcoming, especially for the Brooklyn Comics and Graphics Fest on November 10, so if you’d like a copy you can PRE-ORDER IT HERE!
Here’s a shot of the new covers, freshly screenprinted and on the Dirt Palace drying rack:
I’ve moved to Providence, Rhode Island, and I’ve been extremely happy. I’ve made bunches of new friends, many of whom are artists, and I’ve quickly felt at home. But woah nelly, have I been busy! So here’s a selection of random drawings, sans explanation:
Here are two watercolors from the journals I kept during the month of May, while I was volunteering at Farm Sanctuary in Orland, California. The rest of the watercolors, as well as the transcribed entries, will be part of a final project that currently has no structure nor timeline. I don’t mean to be a tease; hopefully these will satisfy and wet your palate while I work to figure it out.
Framing my contribution to A Rotta Love’s Benefit Show, titled DEVIANT ART: DISPELLING MYTHS. The show helps support Rottweilers, pitt bulls and other dog breeds that get a bad rap. Show opening on April 14th in the Northrup King building in Minneapolis! More info on the site: link
Here’s a better look at my contribution, a piece I made last December:
Castles: Observational Drawings From France 2011 is now available! It is 18 pages, 5.5″ by 8.5″ pamphlet.
A collection of observational sketches I drew while on a two-week trip to France in October 2011. I visited seven medieval structures during my time there: five castles, one monastery, and a single tower, in the center of Paris.
Each zine comes with two randomly chosen buttons! The button designs are exclusive drawings that aren’t featured in the book. There is also a new Castle Combo Pack, where you can get all my castle products, plus all four tower buttons!
You can view the entire thing on my site here: link
Here’s a drawing of Château de Langeais that was cut from the final zine:
And here are a bunch of random drawings that need to get posted (click to view larger):
Ah, and while I’m here, there’s been another watercolor painting added to The Store. This time of Jesse Pinkman, from the TV show Breaking Bad:
You can see all the watercolors that are available at The Store under the tag ‘ORIGINAL ART.’
And of course, commissions are still open!
(PHEW. Not quite caught up with the updates, but close!!)
I was accepted to CAKE, the Chicago Alternative Comics Expo! I’m really thrilled about it.
I’m going to be making watercolors this month to pay for the table. Here two new ones for sale, and more are on the way (click the images to purchase!):
Thanks! Your help is really appreciated!
