Events, this weekend and next

April 3, 2014

Hello, this is just to say that this Saturday, April 5th I will be at the Uncivilized Books table at the Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art Festival in midtown, selling comic books with Tom Kaczynski, Sophie Yanow, Jon Lewis, Sam Alden and Alex Holden. We will be at table C25, wherever that is! Come say hello and watch me squirm!


Then, the next weekend, on Sunday, April 13th, at 1:00 PM, I will be at the Downtown Literary Festival at the Housing Works bookstore with Julia Wertz and MK Reed, discussing “New York City as a character.” There will be all sorts of other literary discussions with real New York City literary authors, come and see!


There will be more events coming as the summer progresses and my new book, Truth is Fragmentary, is released, including a talk for the New York Comics & Picture-Story Symposium, run by the illustrious Ben Katchor on May 13th.

Still No New Comics But

December 19, 2013

I have two long-term announcements about two long-distance events. The first is that I am teaching a workshop at SAW in Gainesville, Florida this March. I am very excited as I’ve always wanted to go to Florida. I am hoping to see an alligator. It will be a class about drawing autobiographical comics and diary comics. Or rather about turning your life into a diary and then into autobiography. Perhaps we’ll do comics about seeing alligators.

Screen-Shot-2013-07-28-at-10.23.27-PMThe second is all the way in May and in far off Toronto, Canada, but I am so excited to be invited as special guest at the Toronto Comic Arts Festival, to debut my new collection, whose name I recently changed to Truth is Fragmentary: Travelogues & Diaries.  I’m especially excited because the other guests are all artists who I admire a great deal, and because one of them is Lynn Johnston! I grew up on For Better or For Worse.
