If you’re going to Emerald City Comic-Con in Seattle this weekend (And You Should), I will be there at TABLE 310! I will have MANY BOOKS and THINGS, including the new Vattu book, the new edition of Rice Boy, and some new stickers and small things. I hope the above visual aids will be helpful to you (i will actually have more things than pictured here but, you know, broad strokes).

I am also participating in a PANEL! On Friday at 11:40, called “Beyond the Genre in Genre Fiction.” This is something I have a lot to say about. Some details.

My flight leaves at 7 in the morning on Thursday. AWESOME!

thank you to my friend Kristi for the photo of myself.

A disorienting panel from “Artifacts,” a short comic I made last year for The Sleep of Reason, an anthology of horror comics put together by my buddy Spike. It’s now available in print and as a pdf! For YOU!
I kind of forgot making this story, but I like it a lot and I’m reminded that I should definitely push my work in weird directions more frequently…

Rice Boy covers, old and new. What a relief to have some vague proof that you’re getting better at drawing.

The Rice Boy book has now entered its FOURTH printing, and I re-designed its cover and overall design for the first time since the tiny overpriced print-on-demand version from 2008! I think it’s a good-looking book!

The first few hundred orders of the new edition will get the set of three stickers shown here- 3 by 3 inches, full-color screenprinting on vinyl. Like the best stickers I have ever had made fyi.

Thank you all for reading my comics and still consistently caring about something I started almost eight years ago, it means so much to me.

I don’t post very much here about the project that takes up the vast majority of my time. Vattu is nearing the end of Book 2, and I’m very excited about some things that will be coming together in the near future… This page initiates one of those comings-together; finally we approach the Imperial Tower that has been looming in the distance since page 204.
Started this thing in summer 2010 and about halfway through it now and I think you should read it if you’re interested.
