Woah, I’m back! And with an exciting project I was asked to be a part of!
CHIRP (The Chicago Independent Radio Project) has kicked off their Spring Membership Drive, and a t-shirt I designed is one of the donation prizes! CHIRP was also a sponsor for the Chicago Zine Fest this year, and is just an all-around great organization. Click through to see all of the donation tiers and prizes, and to show your support if you’re able to.

Hey, here’s an interview I did with Gaper’s Block about this Thursday’s Laydeez Do Comics event! Maybe give it a read, and also maybe consider checking out the event at Quimby’s (1854 W North Ave) at 7p Halloween Night! In addition to talking about the way I’ve progressed into autobio comics, I’m probably going to use some of my allotted time to read one of the stories from Rememberies, which I’m looking forward to doing!

[[I’m just glad he didn’t turn out lookin’ more like a Bort than a Bart, yeesh.]]

In addition to reading at Hallowzine on Oct 25, I’ll also be presenting at the October gathering of the Laydeez do Comics Chicago chapter on Halloween! Laydeez do Comics is a once-monthly salon that focuses on autobiographical narratives in comics. It was started in London in 2009, and the Chicago chapter began at the beginning of this year.

Come hear some chats about comics before you head out to your Halloween festivities! Costumes encouraged, I imagine. 

Hope to see you there!
