Some New Things

The Chicago Zine Fest is over. It was a pretty amazing weekend and made me really feel like part of something in Chicago. It was wonderful to see so many talented people able to get together in one place and share what they love doing. It was very inspiring. Here's the little daily comic I drew about it:

In other news, I'm going on a little mini-tour with my good friend Paul Baribeau. This is our tentative schedule:
03/27 Chicago
03/38 Grand Rapids, MI
03/30 Cleveland, OH
03/31 Columbus, OH
04/01 Bloomington, IN
04/03 Louisville, KY
04/05 Milwaukee, WI

If we're coming your way, please come say hi to me, I'll be at the table with my books, and maybe doing a reading here and there. Should be a lot of fun. I'm very excited to leave and city and hang out with Paul for awhile.
Here's the flier for the show at my house that I made:

Thanks everyone who came to the zine fest and supported us! It really meant a lot!!

It's Here!

Tomorrow we are hanging art for the Chicago Zine Fest! It's hard to believe--this is really happening!
We have had a crazy amount of hype and it's getting so exciting. I feel like I used to before Christmas, or a trip to Cedar Point. I would get so excited about an event coming up that I would actually make myself sick. Hopefully that doesn't happen. Although I haven't slept really or taken a break in about a week..
Here's what I've been working on:
My new book!
Here's a sample page:

This will be available at The Chicago Zine Fest 1104 S Wabash Saturday March 13th from 10-5pm
Don't forget Friday night there is a reading at Quimby's Bookstore at 7pm and a zine-related art show/gadabout film fest showing at Johalla Projects 1561 N Milwaukee.
Please come!!!
Also, tomorrow 4:30-7pm and Friday 4:30-7pm is the Comic Symposium down at SAIC
and Friday from I think 5:45-7 is a reading at 826CHI
All of these events are free and going to be AWESOME!!

Here's a funny article Matt and I were interviewed for with the Onion's AvClub.
