Progress is subjective

I don't think I'm that good at social media. Granted I am an antisocial wretch-thing, but I think it has more to do with the fact that when I'm grinding away at a book, I don't really have much of substance to post other than "Ya know that book I make? I'm still making it." When I'm working on a set of prints I get to post shit more frequently, usually some variation of "Hey look at this thing I drew." and it's great. People like seeing my stuff and I love being able have that interaction.

Problem is, books don't lend themselves to that "constant content" model well. I've been posting the occasional out-of-context panel on my Instagram and I'm grateful for the reception those little sneak peeks have received, but there's only so much I can show without spoiling the book. So it creates this situation where I feel like I'm slacking off on my readers even though I'm working on this book every night.

I don't know what the point of all that was other than "sorry for the radio silence, but I am working on shit". In fact, Nowhere #4 is almost done; only a few more pages left to go. Here's a WIP drawing of Abigail, a pirate girl, and a superhero mouse:

I love how this book makes no sense out of context.

COMMISSIONS!

I put this up on the site a bit ago, but I don't think I've actually posted about it yet. Back when we were doing the Scratches Kickstarter, I wound up doing a bunch of commissions as rewards for it:

I've never been much of a commission guy, but I found myself enjoying the hell out of these so I thought I'd try opening it up on here. So with that in mind I set up a Commissions page here to test the waters. If you're interested in having me draw a thing for you, feel free to check it out.

Show updates

So it turns out I will not be attending Flashback Weekend. There was some communication issues trying to get a table set up and paid for and I finally pulled a "fuck it, I'm out" because I am a very patient man who is not prone to fits of anger. So yeah, that sucks. But I will be returning to Cincinnati Comic Expo this year and to say that I'm stoked is putting it pretty fucking lightly. I had a blast there last year and I was worried I had missed this years registration, but I managed to get in on the wait list and I can't wait to get back down there.

Uh yeah...I think that's everything. Still working on the book. It's almost done. I'm trying out commissions. Flashback is out and Cincy is in. Woot.
