How did we go ten years without talking?

I saw the Skeleton Twins by myself yesterday and it was hauntingly beautiful. I still can’t stop thinking about it…so I had to get this out of my system.

Hello, friends! This weekend, September 13th-14th, I will be attending the Small Press Expo in Bethesda, MD with the School of Visual Arts’ Cartoon Allies organization! We will be selling student work at, from comics to prints to stickers, including copies of my “Greg Takes the Stage” and “TV Head” mini comics.

Make sure to stop by table W75 and say hi if you’re in the area! This weekend’s bound to be a blast!

I didn’t realize how nervous I was about SPX until I saw the Exhibitor’s List. (So many amazing artists in one place!)
My social skills will be put to the test this weekend.

I have a bad habit of whispering answers to myself before I raise my hand or if I’m too shy to talk to the class. Cathi carpe’d the diem.
