Hi readers! I’m so thrilled to finally share with you not one, but TWO new projects coming from me in 2019!
The first is Share Your Smile, a how-to-make-comics journal and guidebook, featuring tips, tricks, and story prompts! That will be released on April 30th! The second is my long-anticipated new graphic novel, GUTS. It’s a true story, just like Smile and Sisters, and comes out in September!
Keep an eye on my website for further updates about order info, sneak peeks, book tour dates, and more as I anticipate the exciting year ahead!
Hi everyone!! Things have been busy around here, between working on my next book, traveling, and art shows!
What art shows, you ask? Well, I had a temporary exhibition at the Lucca Comics and Games Fest in Lucca, Italy, and I got to travel there as a guest of the festival. It was a great time! Super thanks to my Italian publisher, Il Castoro, for facilitating!
