Inking a secret project for next week. SO. FLIPPING. EXCITED.
Hey Portland! Just wanted to let you know I’ll be appearing on a panel in Portland tomorrow as part of this neat event called The Wild. If you have an interest in print goodness, why not stop by to hear Sarah Mirk, Zack Soto, Francois Vigneault, and yours truly discuss the state of comics and independent publishing in the digital age? The panel will be moderated by Justin Hocking and it’s absolutely free! It all goes down tomorrow (Tuesday) from 7pm to 8:30pm at the Independent Publishing Resource Center (1001 SE Division St). More details on the event site.
See you there!

Flux Fox: Fluxfox Comic Review: True Believer by Lucy Bellwood
First up on my reviews of the books I picked up at TCAF 2013 is “True Believer” By Lucy Bellwood.
I had heard her name from a friend a few times but I had not actually read or seen any of Lucy’s work before. I even missed out on her Kickstarter for the comics creation. Luckily TCAF…
Thanks to Chris for this very kind review of True Believer! If you missed the announcement a few weeks back, the comic is now available for digital download on Gumroad as well as in physical form via my store.
(Due to popular demand, this image will be available as a postcard in the near future! Stay tuned.)
Allow me to brag!
TCAF was really great this year, although I was very tired the whole entire time. Here I have drawn my entire haul and a few things I remember fondly. Really there were many more things that happened but I am too lazy to draw them. I met most of the people I bought from and everyone was so nice. I am marveling at my purchases. I don’t know when I’ll have the money to eat again, but I have zero regrets about what I spent.
I just remembered that I never managed to see Katie Shanahan! She was coincidentally away from her table every time I walked by. Anyways great perfect TCAF, I got to spend time with a lot of people I admire. Which is so stressful and good.
Aw, you guys. Carolyn is amazing. Also: who else had the balls to DRAW THEIR ENTIRE TCAF HAUL. I gotta step up my game.

“The Thief’s Tale” issue 3 (the second chapter of the story) is finished and I just got my first batch of print issues in the mail! You can read the whole story on the smackjeeves site. You can also get copies of all three issues from my etsy it strikes your fancy :)
Do you like gorgeous comics? Of course you do!
Apologies to anyone who tried to order a physical copy of Baggywrinkles yesterday. There was a stock number issue in the store, so it was showing up as sold out. This is not the case! Pre-order with ease right here.
Sorry for the mix-up!
After a sell-out weekend at TCAF, I’m suuuuper excited to announce that Baggywrinkles #4: The Plank is now available for all and sundry both online and in physical form! Download the PDF for free via Gumroad, read the rest of the comic on my site, or purchase a print copy via Storenvy. The possibilities are endless!
empire-of-dust asked: When you say "sold out of all my copies of Baggywrinkles (1, 2, 3, AND 4!)" how many copies are we talking about? (I want to go to TCAF next year but have no idea of how many copies of my comic I should bring)
People did warn me that I should bring a lot of copies, but I guess I still underestimated? I think I had 25-30 copies of each issue when I started. Seemed reasonable based on past show sales, but apparently not! Bring all your comics! Bring all your friends’ comics! Come to TCAF!
HOLY SHIT YOU GUYS TCAF IS NUTS.
I’ve sold out of all my copies of Baggywrinkles (1, 2, 3, AND 4!) and Tales from the Fragment, but if you come back tomorrow I’ll have limited numbers of True Believer, t-shirts, prints, buttons, and some custom watercolor paintings.
Kicking myself for not bringing more stuff, but at least this means I can run around and meet all these other cool comics people tomorrow.
Hooray for Canada! Hooray for comics! HOORAY FOR TCAF!
