So I forgot to talk about it when I first released it, but now that there’s another one, I guess I should… We have some new print comics!! That’s right kiddies, real paper! Two more issues of my no staple, mini comics.
First up is the ‘Lemonade Brigade’. It was initially made for TCAF back in May. It’s about lemons with bad attitudes – sour, if you will…. Sorry, that was terrible… And there’s a fold out comic on the inside about a vampire who likes The Godfather. It’s printed on a beigey-yellow paper, my first in colour!
And the second one is a drawing zine instead of a comic. Based on sketches of people trending on Instagram, this zine is much looser then the usual issues. I like this style too, but don’t worry, I just finished writing the next comic. Follow my hashtag #whileyouweretrending on Instagram to see more drawings. I printed this puppy on light blue paper, and it looks real nice..
Anybody who is interested in purchasing copies of these minis (as well as previous issue ‘Lonny and Sly’) can do so today at the North By Northeast Comic and Prints Fair (click the link for the details). I won’t actually be there though.. I have to work the day job.. But go visit the Toronto Comic Jam table and you grab yourselves copies for a buck a piece. I know, cheap right?!

Broken Pencil Magazine turns 20 next month! That’s twenty years of zines, and comics, and so many great things! You should attend this event and party with them like you were 20 again (presuming you aren’t 20, of course). Oh yeah, and I drew this fancy poster for it.
Check out the event here. It’s gonna be a fun night!
Ah shit… Becoming self aware might not always be the best thing…. And this comic is blowing the lid off my process (and my laziness..) for these pages. Good thing it’s the last page… Where would we go from here anyways?
It’s been a lot of fun drawing and posting these pages over the past few months. This was a really great exercise for me to just draw pages without worrying what the outcome would look or sound like. A truly freeing experience! But i feel i need to move onto something else; a little more thought, maybe a little more refined… use a pencil dammit! Hope you enjoyed the journey!
Something new soon!
Every day is the same. Every day is the same. Every day is the same.
That’s the thing about real life; things don’t always happen. There’s not always a clear cut conclusion. Things just keep rolling by, sometimes they change, often they don’t. We are just here to live in the time and soak in what we can. So let’s not get so stressed out over things we can’t change, and try to enjoy what we have (i need to remember this too).
Snow feels like a distant memory now…
Next week, the final two comics in this “series” (mess) of cartooning!
Here’s a poster i made for a cool little band called Spells of Vertigo. Check them out! I love making posters for my friends, but it’s pretty cool when i do them for complete strangers.
Give em a listen and then go to their show! http://www.spellsofvertigo.com
