I’ll be at the bookshop signing copies and playing a game of Cartoonist Pictionary on Saturday, May 2, which happens to be Independent Bookstore Day! (And Free Comic Book Day, wow!) Come by at 1pm for some games, snacks, and a book signing with me and Dave Roman! If you’d like to pick up the new Baby-sitters Club Graphix then, we’ll have lots of copies!

MoCCA Art Fest, NYC April 11-12

April 1st, 2015

Hey guys!

I know it’s been a few weeks since I updated my site…since getting back from California, I’ve started penciling the actual, real, final art for my next book! I’m having a great time, but there’s not much to talk about at this point. I’ve been posting a lot of sketches and process stuff over on my Instagram, so if you want more frequent art updates, that’s the best place to find me!

I’ll be attending the MoCCA Art Festival as a special guest on April 11 and 12…which is neat, since MoCCA was the very first comic convention I ever had a table and sold minicomics at, starting way back in 2002! I haven’t tabled there in a while, but since I’m a guest this year, I’ll be signing books and doing a couple of panels! Here’s where you can find me that weekend:

MoCCA Art Festival
Location: Center 548
West 22nd Street Between 10th & 11th Avenues
New York, NY
April 11-12
11am-6pm
