#Quaranzinefest

We may be all sheltered in place, but we are still making and sharing zines. Enter #QuaranzineFest! A two day online zine fest. Make, share, buy and trade zines online. Follow the hashtag #QuaranzineFest and discover some fun new zines and zinesters today April 4 and tomorrow April 5.



To that end, you may have noticed that my online store is temporarily closed. 


Unfortunately, with social distancing and shelter in place it is becoming increasingly difficult to make it to the post office to ship out my usual wares. Do not fret! I have a bunch of stamps at home and, for a small price, I can snail mail you a selection of mini zines. I have a new mini preview version of No Pants Revolution 5 and a new iridescent No Pants Revolution sticker that I can send to you for only $3. Also, For $5 you'll get those and I'll also throw in my Fandom Fashion 1 & 2 mini zines. The info for how you can venmo and paypal me are on the images below. This deal will be going on as long as there is shelter in place and is unfortunately for US only.




Surely, it goes without saying that all of the fests that I was so excited about in the beginning of the year are now postponed or cancelled. But it's okay, as long as I'm making zines I'll try to figure out how to get them out to people.


Go follow #Quaranzinefest, discover some new fun stuff and support artists!

The Year is 2020

It's March! Boy, has it been a year already. Some good stuff, some not so great things and some great things! I don't feel like getting into all the details right now. What I do want to do is tell you about some of the awesome shows I got lined up this Spring!


I'm so excited to be a part of these amazing shows! I have a new No Pants Revolution coming out as well as some other fun stuff that I can't wait to show you. Below are a few more details about when and where they are.

April 4: Milwaukee Zine Fest 10:30am-4:30pm at The Central Branch of the Milwaukee Public Library Milwaukee, WI

April 18: Detroit Zine Fest 11am-7pm at Light Box Performance in Detroit, MI

May 16: Chicago Zine Fest 11am-6pm at The Plumbers Union Hall Chicago, IL

June 13-14: Chicago Alternative Comics Expo (CAKE) 11am-6pm at The Broadway Armory Chicago, IL



So, what else have I been up to? This past December I did my first ever comics reading courtesy of Meanwhile and Saturday Night Drink and Draw. I gave out and mailed over 100 copies of my 2019 Holiday Card (which due to some computer issues I don't have access to right now. That will be for another post soon, promise). Also, for the first time ever, I actually completed all 31 days of #inktober! I was inspired to do inktober illustrations based around the loose concept of fashion. Some of the drawings are of me in outfits inspired by characters, old photos or real life outfits I wear and a few are fan art drawings of characters wearing fun new outfits. Check them out!
































Here they are all over the floor. This is fun right?

If you can't make it out to any of the shows I'll be at, then considering grabbing some of my comics from my online store. New stuff coming soon. Link.
