Happy New Year!

Screen Shot 2014-12-31 at 2.17.13 PM I'm ending the year on a sweet note -- the Wall Street Journal has published an article called The New Wave of Graphic Novels, which talks about the last ten years and how things have shifted and changed in my industry, and heavily features me and my work. I couldn't be prouder.

2014 has been a banner year for me. It had its ups and downs, but overall, it has been an overwhelming success. The debut of SISTERS surpassed my (and my publisher's) wildest expectations, and it was a real treat to meet so many of my incredible readers on my book tour.

Then, I came home and finished the first draft of the script for my next graphic novel -- the article hints at some of the themes in the story towards the end. I'll spend most of 2015 at my desk (pictured!) creating the art, and in 2016, I'll have another book to share with all of you! So, thank you. Without you guys, none of this would be possible. Thanks for letting me share my stories, and for sharing so many of your own in return. I'm looking forward to even bigger and better things in 2015, and beyond!
