Because it’s all we’ve got

March 30, 2016

It’s been almost a year since I’ve posted here, and even longer since I’ve posted a comic. but spring is here and it’s time to try again. Hello!

But first,

-This coming weekend, I’ll be at the  MoCCA Festival.

I’ll be on a panel with Nicole Georges, Gina Wynbrandt and Jennifer Hayden, moderated by Heidi MacDonald, at 3:30 PM, at the MoCCA’s  programming venue, Ink48, 653 11th Avenue at 48th Street, around the corner from the primary MoCCA venue, in the Helvetica room, on the 4th floor. Got that?

-Also I’m looking forward to seeing two giants of autobiography, Ariel Schrag in conversation with Phoebe Gloeckner, also Saturday, at 12:30, at the Garamond room, also located at Ink48.

-When not at those talks, I’ll be drawing small portraits for ten bucks each with the Uncivilized Books table. For small children, approximately fifteen to twenty minutes of free babysitting is included! I enjoy drawing the kids. Here are some favorite examples from past festivals:

-I’ve started an instagram account. So far it is mostly photos of drawings of people at events, from my sketchbook.

-For any readers in Switzerland, I’m excited to announce I’ll be at the Fumetto festival in Lucerne, a wonderful comics festival surrounded by the Swiss Alps and Lake Lucerne. I visited some years ago and did some comics about it (here) which will be included in their 25th anniversary celebration book. Apparently I’ll be doing some sort of talk here.

And now, here is what originally was a “diary comic,” before every single inch of the pages was reworked and reworked again:



I will try to keep posting more again, if I can manage my internet stagefright.

    Reblogged this on sometimes sketch blog and commented:
    If you are interested in great comics and the creative process, I strongly suggest reading Gabrielle Bell
