Come see me at Emerald City Comic Con!

Hi everyone! This weekend I will be exhibiting at Emerald City Comic Con in Seattle, WA at table EE-07. I’ve got the new Kickstarted O Human Star book and a few other goodies, so come by and pick up a copy if you missed out!

I will also be doing books signings at Portland, OR, first on March 30 at 4-7 PM at The Spritely Bean, and then on April 1 at 4-7 PM at Cosmic Monkey Comics! I’ll sign a brand new copy of O Human Star Volume One for you!

I look forward to seeing my Washington and Oregon fans! I know I’ve got quite a few of them, thanks to Kickstarter! ALL HAIL KICKSTARTER.

O Human Star shortlisted for Autostraddle award

When I returned from my September conventions I found out some exciting news – Autostraddle, the media and lifestyle blog focusing on queer women, had nominated O Human Star for Best Online Comic in its first ever Comic Awards! The winner itself, Monster Pop, is well deserving, but it was an honor just being nominated. Thanks, ladies!

I’ve launched a Patreon campaign!

Big news! I’m starting a Patreon campaign because I’ve reached a really exciting point in my career where I think my readers can help me push my work to the next level.

If you aren’t familiar with it yet, Patreon is a crowdfunding platform where folks contribute funds to an individual’s ongoing work instead of one particular project. Depending on how much you choose to pledge per month, you will get access to certain cool things, like Patreon-exclusive sketches, sneak-peeks and PDFs. And if certain monthly milestone goals are met, I get to do awesome things that will make everyone happy.

O Human Star had been updating twice a week for the past several months, but when I have to juggle a day job and extra freelance work on top of regular updates, sometimes keeping up that schedule can be… a challenge. I’d like a healthier way to balance my workload while giving my readers a way to peek at side projects and behind-the-scenes work that I’ve never shared before. I’m also reaching the point where being able to pay to replace my work tools, like the aging laptop I draw my comics on, would be a massive benefit.

I will still be updating O Human Star frequently, at least 5 pages a month, regardless of how much you pledge. But pledging to my Patreon will allow me to spend more time on my comics, and as we reach certain milestone goals I can update the comic more frequently and unlock cool rewards for everybody who’s pledged.

Thank you for your support, and I look forward to making more comics you love!

O Human Star Chapter 2 is now for sale!

The second chapter of my online comic O Human Star is now available in print at my store site. You also have the option for your book to be sketched in and personalized.

Once again I would like to thank the generosity of Prism Comics and the Queer Press Grant, as well as the Brush Creek Foundation for the Arts for allowing me to work on this chapter during a 4 week-long artist residency back in August. This book wouldn’t have turned out as great as it did without their support.
