Matt and I are back from our honeymoon and I’m finally getting some time to start writing about our amazing trip to Japan! We went for two weeks, visiting Fukuoka, Nara, Osaka, and Tokyo. A highlight of our Tokyo trip was exhibiting in the Artist Alley of Kaigai Manga Festa (seems like their site is being updated now, but here is the official twitter), the first ever international comics show in Japan which was put on in conjunction with the quarterly indie comic event, Comitia! Originally, we were going to exhibit with our friend Yuuko Koyama at Comitia as I had done in the past (full post on that here), but when the Festa was announced we felt we should be there to represent our aspect of American comics. Luckily we were able to get a table and it worked out great! (more…)

If you don’t know Drawing Words & Writing Pictures, it’s an amazing book and website by Jessica Abel and Matt Madden about comics craft which is also a great textbook. I found it indispensable for teaching college classes on comics writing, that’s for sure! I was invited to write a post for their site about my experiences with manga and it’s impact on my work. If you’ve ever wondered about the details of my involvement with manga and Japan, and exhibiting at a comics show there, here’s your chance to read all about it. Please check it out!
I’ll be exhibiting with Matt Loux in Toronto at TCAF this weekend (May 7-8) at Booth #233 on the 2nd floor of @ Toronto Reference Library 789 Yonge St., Toronto, Canada! Looking forward to it as we had a fantastic time last year! I even made a special print run of my bilingual French comic about cheese and desserts for the occasion.
