I wanted to have all these together on my blog. 

Five pages from the first pass at Zodiac Starforce, a comic that I’m doing with Kevin Panetta. He’s the writer extraordinaire and letterer. 

It’s a magical girl comic and it’s awesome. We’re working on it now. I should be posting some more development sketches soonish. ’ u ‘

so i’ve been sketching again…

I was threatened with violence and rape and begged a bus driver protect me from my harasser. Instead, he laughed and shook the man's hand.

Last night I took the bus into San Francisco from Sausalito to see the incredible Anna Von Hausswolff perform at the Rickshaw Stop. After the show, I walked a friend over to Civic Center BART, ate a fast food snack, and then headed to the 70/80 Golden Gate Transit bus stop at…

Review: Monoprice 19" Tablet Monitor - Wacom Take Heed


frenden:

Wacom has long held the crown as the top maker of graphics tablet hardware, but they have not iterated upon the technology in meaningful ways. The products have remained staid and safe and prices are high as ever. Graphics tablets are a market ripe for disruption.

The Monoprice 19”…

This is exciting. I still enjoy working with my hands—ink on bristol—but I’ve been dying for a tablet for ages. A Cintiq would be great, but they’re still very expensive. I would like to try this out.

Spike Drew This.: This Is Everything I Know: A 24-Hour Comic About Comics.


Someone who has their shit together did this comic about what it takes to be an indy comics creator—all very solid and accurate, so if you’re interested, check it out! It’s not the easy path, but as it states, it’s never been easier if you know how to hustle and can focus. Which is pretty much the biggest hurtle, honestly.

Hey, all. This is a comic I started on 24 Hour Comic Day, but I only managed to complete 12 pages on that day. That makes it a technical failure, but I decided it was worth finishing regardless of that.

Raw scan for the cover of A Boy and a Girl, art by Natalie Nourigat. Book released on November 27. Details here.

Printing things out in blue line has been such a helpful tool since Periscope Studio taught me how to do it 3 years ago.  Charley’s eye there was originally from a panel in the book.  We thought it would be a great element for the cover, except that she shouldn’t be applying mascara and we needed the image to be much larger/higher res.  BAM, printed it out huge in blue line and inked around the mascara wand!  MAGIC.

A Message from Mark Ruffalo for Abortion Rights Rally - Aug 17, 2013 in Jackson, MS

   I am a man. I could say this has nothing to do with me. Except I have two daughters and I have a mother who was forced to illegally have an abortion in her state where abortion was illegal when she was a very young woman. It cost $600 cash. It was a traumatizing thing for her. It was shameful and sleazy and demeaning. When I heard the story I was aghast by the lowliness of a society that would make a woman do that. I could not understand its lack of humanity; today is no different.

51viamargutta asked: You have irrevocably changed my world. I started reading your comics when I was 8, I'm 14 now and I am still obsessed. Since I was 3, I was raised in a punk venue/comic store/skate shop. My parents split when I was 7 and I ended up in public school in ARKANSAS. I felt so alone. Everyone thought I was so weird. I was that girl with the blue hair. We had carried Blue Monday at our store & I started reading it. It became my release. Thank you so much for making me happy. Never stop writing.

Man, that’s a rough ride! I thought it was bad when I realized just how isolated the school I transferred to near Yosemite National Park was (from Fresno, which was no picnic either,) but having to go from being in a cool spot like what you describe to Arkansas must have been a whole new level of culture shock. Feeling alone in the middle of a bunch of people is the worst. If I had a dollar for all the times other people called me weird, I’d be lounging on my own private Caribbean island right now, so I feel your pain. That was the thing, I came up with Blue Monday when I was in that school, the one Jefferson High is based off of, Yosemite High. I looked around at all the other comics available, and very, very few addressed what it was like to be a weirdo in a sea of Normies. Japanese comics got the high school thing, especially Rumiko Takahashi, but there wasn’t much for American or British teenagers that we could identify with directly. I wanted something with our kind of soundtrack, our foul language, our humor, and all the crap we had to deal with in school. So I figured I’d make my own. Then maybe, MAYBE, other people like my friends and I would have something to connect with, even if it was just a little bit, and just a comic book. I’m so very glad that Blue Monday helped you to any degree. Thank you so much for writing and letting me know that it meant something to you, because that’s what really makes it worthwhile to me. There’s more on the way, and you’re about the same age as the gang, which means by the time the 5th collection comes out (Thieves Like Us) you’ll probably be the exact same age. Except with more electronic devices than they had (they’re passing notes instead of texting, obviously, because it takes place in the early ’90s.) I really hope you’ll enjoy the new stories! 

Anyway, keep kicking ass, and don’t let the sheep get you down.
