This week, I had the pleasure of appearing again on the hilarious Schlock Treatment podcast! This time, we covered the ’80s cheese-fest - The Apple! I’ve also put together a Top 10 Divas of Schlock list for the occasion. Feel free to chime in with your own favorites in the comments of the post!
Hope you all have a wonderful New Year!
Looking back on 2013, I didn’t get to post as many dessert comics as I would have liked. But there is a very good reason for that! Every day, I was working on a new project that will be announced very soon! So hold on tight, you’ll be seeing a whole new book full of my art out in Fall of 2014. In the meantime, here are some of my highlights!
Hurray! The Robicelli’s book, Robicelli’s: A Love Story, with Cupcakes: With 50 Decidedly Grown-Up Recipes, is out now! I thought it would be fun to share these comic pages I collaborated on with Allison when the book was in the pitching stage. These pages are not in the book, but I think they’ll give you a good idea of the fun tone of the book!
In addition to comics and desserts, you may know (via my Twitter feed) that I love cheesy and campy movies. I listen to various podcasts as I draw, and one of my recent faves is Schlock Treatment! It features four hilarious guys who watch schlocky movies and joke around about them. It’s been a staple for me the past several months, and I was honored to be invited to guest host this week. Since it’s December, we watched Jingle All the Way. I don’t recommend the movie, but I DO recommend you listen to us having fun joking around about the movie, as well as toys, cookies, Japanese bathroom technology, Spider-Man, and various other topics of interest. I encourage you to subscribe to their podcast via itunes, Stitcher Radio, or just listen to it streaming on their site. Click here to listen!
Hey Everybody! I’ve been quite busy lately working on some freelance jobs and a new graphic novel (details to be announced at a future date).
Since I’m back on a book deadline now, I’ve been thinking about productivity and best ways to get a lot of pages done in the limited time I have. As all cartoonists know, comics take a long time to produce. Typically, a cartoonist must tackle writing, penciling, inking, coloring, and even more extra tasks. A lot of steps! Often I get asked about how I make time to get my comics and blogging projects done since I do those things in addition to a full-time job. I’ve come upon an approach that I wanted to share since I think it would be helpful for others (whether you’re a cartoonist or not). Read the rest of this entry »
It’s been far too long since I’ve appeared at a New York comics event, so I’m especially pleased to announce the release party for The Big Feminist BUT anthology comic! I’m extra excited that it will be at Housing Works. Such a great store! I’ll be there with Shannon O’Leary and Joan Reilly, also Heidi MacDonald and contributors Lauren Weinstein, Gabrielle Bell, Josh Neufeld, Sari Wilson, and Emily Flake! Here is the Facebook event page.
Monday, July 8th 7pm @ Housing Works Bookstore Cafe – 126 Crosby St, New York, New York 10012
You may recall a while ago, that I was collaborating on the upcoming Robicelli’s book, Robicelli’s: A Love Story, with Cupcakes: With 50 Decidedly Grown-Up Recipes. And now it’s available for pre-order! I had a blast drawing Allison’s script for some recipe comics. This book is going to be hilarious and packed with great recipes! Learn the secret to their amazing buttercream frosting!
