Looking forward to this event with Tim Fish at JHU Comic Books (32 E 32nd St. NYC)! I will have some limited edition posters on hand AND Amy Chu and Ben McCool will be joining us for this signing for their work on Strange Sports Stories #1. I’ll also have copies of Dolltopia, Tough Love, and some of my other licensed comics available – so come on out!
I’m excited to announce that my graphic novels, Dolltopia and Tough Love: High School Confidential, are now available as e-books! They are being distributed by Northwest Press and Tough Love is now also available on Comixology and Pulp Free Publishing. They will both be made available at other vendors in the coming months. Read below for more info on each book. (more…)
Big news! The book I’ve been working on over the last few years, Cool Japan Guide: Fun in the Land of Manga, Lucky Cats and Ramen, is available for pre-order right now! The official release date is March 10th 2015, and I’ll be on tour this year for it, so let me know if I should come to your town! This is my first non-fiction book and also my first full-color book. It’s a fun, fully-illustrated, cartoon guide to traveling in Japan and features amusing stories and anecdotes as well. Whether you’re planning a trip to Japan or not, this is a fun read!
You can pre-order from NY indie store McNally Jackson here! Plus, here’s a B&N link and here’s an Indiebound link. You can pre-order it from Powell’s too. And Amazon has it too of course (link below)!
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!
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). (more…)
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
