Although I was skeptical beforehand, I had an absolute blast at DC Zinefest! I sold way more than I ever imagined I would and I met so many awesome people.

I sat next to Santiago “Santi” Casares (Chili’s World), who was wonderful! We chatted through the whole event and looked after each other’s tables. I even picked up one of his mini-comics to add to my zine collection. :) Santi also told me about DC Conspiracy and Magic Bullet, both of which I’d love to get involved with.

Jonas (Bad Liver and A Broken Heart, Cheer The Eff Up) sat on my other side — he seemed like a DC Zinefest celebrity!!! I didn’t talk to him until the very end, but he was really great and we even exchanged zines. Can’t wait to take a look at his work!

Surprisingly, Ramsey Beyer (Little Fish) was there. I thought I would see her at SPX since I saw her there last year, but there she was. And it turns out she won’t be at SPX this year, so I’m glad to have seen her.

It was awesome meeting Robert Mitchell Jr. :D He writes fiction and draws comics, but is also into martial arts! He also gave me a bunch of his zines including a 44-page comic called Cabal Fang, in which he combines all of his interests. I’m excited to take a closer look!

C.S. Malerich of The 13th Faery, who I met earlier this year at the Smudge Comics Arts Expo, was tabling for the first time. I was very excited to get my hands on a copy of The 13th Faery’s first zine Raiders from the North, or From Eeeeeek to Zut! You can also check out her work at csmalerich.com.

I can’t wait to do DC Zinefest 2015!!!

Tuesday, March 4th: Went with my friend Tina to Welcome to Night Vale live in Washington, D. C. So much fun!

10003353_3812449989573_1179740665_n

Tina and me at Welcome to Night Vale!

Saturday, March 8th: Had a nice time exhibiting at the first-ever Smudge Comics Arts Expo.

Thursday, March 13th: The launch of our new Death Is No Bad Friend crowdfunding campaign: fundrazr.com/campaigns/diZs9?psid=8a92a66f127f49cfb6392f16277ad433.

Saturday, March 15th: Today’s Met Opera simulcast of Massenet’s Werther was beyond words! I read Goethe’s novel a few years back and found it very interesting. But the opera really brings the tragedy to a whole new level. And Jonas Kaufmann’s performance was absolutely captivating. :)

Tuesday, March 18th: Worked on new pages of graphic novel The First Reich.

Wednesday, March 19th: Wonderful Skype call with Jacqueline, DP of Death Is No Bad Friend. We bounced some really interesting ideas back and forth. And I look forward to further developing these ideas with her and director Mary.

Thursday, March 20th: I’ve been watching opera on YouTube and I just have to say that Verdi’s Don Carlos is one of the strangest operas I’ve encountered. Don Carlos falls in love with the woman who then becomes his stepmother, the Spanish Inquisition is running around causing trouble, and at the end Don Carlos is dragged down to hell by his dead grandpa to end his suffering… What!?

Friday, March 21st: My favorite Muppets Most Wanted moments (spoiler alert):

  • The Swedish Chef playing chess with death à la The Seventh Seal.
  • Miss Piggy’s Vivienne Westwood wedding dress.
  • Ricky Gervais in a lemur costume.

Saturday, March 22nd: Worked on new pages of graphic novel The First Reich.

Sunday, March 23rd: I had an amazing time watching The Grand Budapest Hotel! Wes Anderson is brilliant and Ralph Fiennes is one of my all-time favorite actors. And the whole ensemble was amazing — Tilda Swinton, Adrien Brody, Jeff Goldblum, etc. I can’t wait to see it again! :D

Monday, March 24th: Putting together some more Death Is No Bad Friend pre-production notes. Also, was in the mood to write a little prose tonight.

Tuesday, March 25th: Worked on new pages of graphic novel The First Reich.

Wednesday, March 26th: 

Thursday, March 27th:

Experience of Smudge Comics Arts Expo 2014

Smudge was an interesting experience. Firstly, it was held in a very lovely space in the Artisphere. And, because it was only one day (rather than the usual two), it was pretty crowded throughout the whole event. The one thing that drove me crazy though was that they played soundtrack music consisting primarily of Darth Vader’s theme for most of the day for no apparent reason. But overall I met some nice people who I’ll most likely see again at SPX in September and discovered that there’s a lot of interest in Scared Stiff. :)

The Poet and the Flea on Blake House

Blake House Banner

I would very much like to thank Sarah Jones, the managing editor of Blake/An Illustrated Quarterly at the University of Rochester for incorporating one of my illustrations of William Blake from The Poet and the Flea in the new header of the Blake House: Goings-on at the Blake Quarterly blog! What an honor! :)
