Thanks for checking out my simple website. Here’s what’s new and exciting (updated April 2021):
NEW ZINE – Covers #2
I finally finished a new issue of Covers, the side project I started back in 2014 where I take some of my favorite stories about musicians and adapt them into comics. This issue features comics about Sonic Youth, Mike Watt, Alex Zhang Hungtai, Juliana Hatfield, and Neil Young. A lot of these stories deal with overcoming adversity, so I hope this zine provides a little comfort or inspiration during these stressful times. Available now in the store.
My main project these days is an autobiographical comic called Black Tea. The two latest issues are still in print: #5 has comics about the 2016 election, getting older, my favorite library co-worker, an ode to Aquarius Records in San Francisco, and more. #6 is about becoming obsessed with hockey in my 30’s (after not liking sports for most of my life). You can also subscribe to Black Tea, and get the next three issues sent to you automatically when they come out.
Not My Small Diary, #20
I have a comic in the new issue of Not My Small Diary… As always, this one is edited by the amazing Delaine Derry Green, all of the comics are centered around a theme (this time it’s “The Power of Music”), and it features most of my favorite cartoonists (including John Porcellino, Carrie McNinch, Rob Kirby, MariNaomi, and Dave Kiersh). My comic is called “Shoelaces,” and is about listening to music in my room as a teenager. You can order this 136-page issue for only $6.50 on Etsy.
In the works…
I’m organizing ideas for my next book, which will collect most of the comics I’ve done since Driftwood City (about 250 pages!). I’m also starting to brainstorm ideas for future issues of Black Tea.
