Excuse my internet absence, I’ve been holed up in Laura Park’s apartment in Chicago, discussing the validity of death from terminal lazy bones. Unfortunately I didn’t get any new comics at Stumptown this year because I didn’t want to haul them in my suitcase, so I don’t have any good suggestions. Why’d I even bother typing that sentence?
Overall, I enjoyed Stumptown, despite slow sales and my perpetually cranky attitude at conventions. People often say I look miserable but that’s just my face! that’s how I look even when I’m not in the middle of grave suffrage. My new mini comic, The Great Pretenders, sold out quickly but prints and books were slow movin’. But all the volunteers and organizers were really sweet and I’m a nerd who just likes hanging out in bookstores and doodling, so going to Portland for a few days was a nice respite. I wish I had more to report, but I mostly just hung out at the hotel all weekend watching the history channel, so here’s some photos instead:
Drawing at Powells L-R: Ben Catmull, Zack Soto, Vanessa Davis, Sarah Glidden, Levon Jihanian, Trevor Alixopulos
Sarah took this photo of us at Doug Fir. I just like it is all. It’s like the cover for a bad album about sweaters.

I made some prints, of which there are leftovers I’ll be selling here later this week. These photos are boring so I’m gonna stop posting them but there are more on my flickr account. Thanks to everyone who organized/exhibited/attended Stumptown! see y’all at TCAF soon.
