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”

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”

A Little Shove

September 6th, 2021 Inspiration and motivation can come from the strangest and most delightful of places. Making Brushfire is hard. It’s a lot of fun and it means the universe (multiple universes, actually) to me, but it’s been a ton of work and some days I just can’t. There’s an alternate dream reality in whichContinue reading “A Little Shove”

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”

The Argument For Art Now

July 27th, 2021 I want to start by saying that I have the utmost respect for people who take their time. I do. I just want to make that clear because in a few sentences it’s going to sound like I don’t. I can’t stand people who take their time. Damn. It only took oneContinue reading “The Argument For Art Now”

July 25th, 2021 My squirrels! I am beyond excited to finally reveal the cover for my upcoming all-ages (yes, this one is for everybody!) graphic novel, Brushfire. I’ve been working on this story for a long time (and as you can see, it’s titled Wave 1, which means that it’s just the beginning of aContinue reading “Brushfire Cover Reveal!”

First things first: my deepest, sincerest, most saccharine gratitude to every single wonderful soul who attended the Book(s) Release Party today, whether you showed up over an hour early, or stayed with me until the very end (and maybe even a few minutes past that). I’ve said it before, andContinue reading “i love u all so much”
