CAKE 2014!!!!

CAKE this year was great! I tabled with long time pal and cartoonist Kevin Budnik. Highlights include, meeting Erik Nebel, getting twelve gems signed by Lane Milburn, picking up a bunch of comics from Noah van Sciver and probably awkwardly talking to him,  Onsmith beer coozi, Kyle Platts Nobrow book. 

My HAUL! too many great this to list, overall by the size of this haul it was a good CAKE.

This is the new stuff that I will have at CAKE.

I got one of my dynamic stories from another dimension printed off on a two color risograph.
roughly 11 x 1, Burgundy on paprika. I got this done through perfectly acceptable risograph. Check them out.

Also debuting sort of is a reprinting of my mini comic Life is Beautiful. Originally 8 pages and was made for the Linework 4 special packs. This new version is 24 pages of comics! This photo is the proof that I made at home before sending my files out to the printer. I should be getting them all tomorrow and will post those pictures as well.

ok phew can’t wait for CAKE2014 guys!!!

I’ll be tabling at CAKE this weekend with David Alvarado. Come say hi to us at table 42!
I’m debuting two collections of the journal comics I’ve been doing recently, which I’m calling Old Gum Wrappers and Grocery Lists.
we’ll have some original drawings and stickers and buttons for sale, too.
Finally -  I’m going to bring a handful of old 30 page OUR EVER IMPROVING LIVINGROOM monthly collections. These are books I was making as I was starting my year-long journal comic project from 2010. They’ll be on sale for $2 a book! A CAKE special

Ya hear that people! The spudnik and I will be there at CAKE. Come by and say hi I promise our chit chat won’t be that awkward.

I went to TCAF! I joined the Yeti Press crew all the way up to Canada.

This was my first time going to this festival and it was amazing!

I brought my little mini comic Life is Beautiful and Who remembers anyway to trade and hand out while I was there.

My haul, got lots of good stuff, highlights include stuff from color code, Michael Deforge, Daryl Seitchnik, blonde man face pin by Lior, Kus, I also got a copy of Playboy signed by Chester Brown! So much good stuff.
