FallCon XL 2021

September 25th, 2021 “Return of the Mack” played on the radio on my way home. That’ll be important later. FallCon XL was today and I just want to say THANK YOU with the full power of my caps lock to everyone I met, saw, or saw again today (and to the staff who made itContinue reading “FallCon XL 2021”

Conned

September 24th, 2021 Tomorrow is FallCon XL at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds; it’ll be the first convention I’m participating in since February of LAST year, and I could not be more excited. It had me thinking about my first convention as a creator, and the first comic book of mine I ever sold. It wasContinue reading “Conned”

Introduction: Fall 2021 Collection

September 19th, 2021 Hi. Hey. Hi! I wasn’t sure how to start this introduction to myself so I used all three as a placeholder and I forgot to go back and delete two. I’ll be going out into the world for the next month and meeting new friends and possible fans and hopefully not potentialContinue reading “Introduction: Fall 2021 Collection”

FALL TOUR 2021

August 27th, 2021 ANNOUNCEMENT!! I’m going on tour! (Well, whatever it looks like when a writer/artist goes on tour.) This fall, I’ll be doing the trifecta of St. Paul, Minneapolis, and Rochester over five dates. So let’s talk about it!

Free Comic Book Day 2021

August 14th, 2021 Today is Free Comic Book Day, often (accurately) referred to as “Geek Christmas,” and I can’t believe this tradition is celebrating 20 years already, kicking off in 2002. (Also, how can something that started this century already be celebrating a 20th anniversary?) I’ve written at length, in past posts and essays, aboutContinue reading “Free Comic Book Day 2021”

Words About Words

August 5th, 2021 I speak in metaphor. I know it’s normal for people to use things to talk about other things, but I sincerely can’t express myself without it. (Mild spoilers for Theia ahead so if you haven’t read it, like, what the heck are you even doing, get out of here and read it.)Continue reading “Words About Words”

Hot Weirdo Summer: Limited Edition Print

July 3rd, 2021 I don’t sell a lot of original art or prints, but I wanted to do something fun (and I wanted to draw my crew!) for my upcoming event on July 21st at Issues Needed in Apple Valley. So here it is: “Hot Weirdo Summer,” a limited-edition print I’ll have available at theContinue reading “Hot Weirdo Summer: Limited Edition Print”

New Interview Alert! Basement Boy Banter Podcast

April 21, 2021 Five years after I was the first guest co-host on Basement Boy Banter, both the show and I return, this time to promote my new collection of essays, Time is a Solid State. Like my book, our conversation covers a wide lens of topics, from the multiversally nerdy to the intimately personal.Continue reading “New Interview Alert! Basement Boy Banter Podcast”

Non-Fiction Suit

February 8th, 2021 August 3rd, 2018, RiverCentre, Downtown St. Paul. I was there at Fan Fusion, which wasn’t my first comic convention ever, but my first comic convention as a real comic book creator. I had written, drawn, and produced my debut issue, The Flying Squirrel #1, with a plan for a 5-issue series IContinue reading “Non-Fiction Suit”

Any & Everything

January 19th, 2021 Anything can be saved. Everything can be destroyed. These were two phrases I repeated in my head when I was still “in it.” I repeated them because I knew I wanted them in my first comic book, and because these words were keeping me alive. I spent a lot of time thinkingContinue reading “Any & Everything”
