Ahhh! I haven’t posted in forever! 
I’m currently working on the second installment of The Misadventures of Vampire Princess Cat for Maple Key Comics… and getting all my stuff reprinted for convention season! 
So far this summer I will be at:
TCAF - May 10 & 11, Toronto 
CAKE - May 31st & June 1st, Chicago 
SPX - September 13 & 14th, Bethesda 
With new things, old things, prettier versions of old things, and myself, tabling with the wonderful Sasha Steinberg… Okay that’s all for now, more stuff soon!

Another oldie, from my first year at CCS. Uh, there’s that awkward feeling that maybe you used to draw better than you do now… 
So I was going through my portfolio to come up with things for the art show and I came across this illustration I did when I first started CCS. It was a “gag” comic about all the shit that they put on motorbikes in Ho Chi Minh City. It’s still probably one of my favorite things I’ve drawn in school. 
Here’s a page I sort of forgot about that I did over the summer. It’s for Sean Knickerbocker’s Awesome Sound 2 anthology. I’ll be selling prints of this at the Brooklyn Live Art Market @ The Brooklyn Lyceum on Saturday! Apparently it’ll be totally dark and everyone will have flashlights? Cool.

Preview from The Serial Mishaps of Vampire Princess Cat, a story I’m doing for Maple Key. 
So I starting doing a comic about a self-obsessed sugar addict moving to an unforgiving metropolitan city. Oh and she happens to be a vampire. And a princess. And a cat. And uh, nothing like me at all. 
It is for Maple Key, which you can still fund via Kickstarter for 5 more days!
