This Is How We Do It



This is how comics get made. Writing and drawing is the fun part. And by we, I mean mostly Mandy, though I am getting the hang of the pamphlet stitch.

We'll be exhibiting at TCAF in sunny Canada this weekend hawking our books and being generally American. We have lots of copies of my last three books, including We Take the Bottom With Us, written by Tom Batten, which I am still quite proud of and which not enough people have read. The remaining copies of Mandy's pressure-printed ghost books will also be available, plus her little-seen mini-comic about ex-boyfriends. We'll be driving up with our friend Rob Ullman, the Richmond-based cartoonist and hockey enthusiast. Come buy all of our things and talk about comics with us! Did you read Prophet yet? Why not? It was awesome!

We had hoped to have new content for the show, but were a little sidelined by getting me into graduate school. I am excited to announce I will be pursuing my MFA in Studio Art at the University of Delaware starting this fall! They are going to lock me in a room and force me to make comics and prints all day, huzzah!
