First Snow

Last night was the first snow of the year.  It's late this year.  Although I'm not a huge fan of the cold, looking out and seeing the snow blowing under the streetlamps on Mozart is a magical feeling.  I really love it and it feels like things are really changing.

Tomorrow is already time again for the Milwaukee Zine Fest!
I love this zine fest because it marks the anniversary of Matt, Ramsey, Neil and I's decision to start Chicago Zine Fest.  It was 3 years ago now already!  Sadly, just Neil and I are left from the original crew but we'll be tabling with Zine Fest goods and our own zines tomorrow from 10-5 at the Falcon Bowl.

What new things will I have there?
Sadly, not much.  I finished my book Stella's Big Wish at long last
Here is the cover:
And a couple sample pages:

I printed two copies through lulu and was going to get more but was not entirely happy with the I don't have any copies for Milwaukee unfortunately.  I will figure it out soon and post more info when they're available!  Hopefully soon!

Here are a couple of little drawings I did for my friend Jamie's website (more about that in the future too!)

And lastly, Chicago Zine Fest is in full swing.  Can't begin to say how excited I am about things going on this year.  Holiday fundraiser, with our NEW ARTWORK by the amazing Lilli CarrĂ©
