Checking in

Hello! I have just officially graduated college! I still can't quite wrap my brain around it and have been nursing the shock with lots of sleeping and fretting about the rest of my life, but rest assured production is beginning again and I am very jazzed.

In about three weeks I will be at the MoCCA art fest in NYC. I will be sharing a table with these two cool cats, plus three other swell fellows, all of us SVA graduates. I will be selling both Alligator Day and Flamingo Island Pt 1, and with luck Flamingo Island Pt 2 will be finished by then and ready to join your collection. Below is a sample of the first page.

In the meantime I am working on some art trades, which is a really good way to keep myself drawing over the summer. I may open up to them on this blog after I finish the ones on my plate, so stay tuned.

Who else is going to MoCCA? Let me know!

Fresh Meat

Can we say, Best Night Ever? Yes I think we can.

SVA's student mini-comic convention went off without a hitch despite humidity, thunderstorms, and a photocopier out of toner. Set up and breakdown went smoothly and despite an embarrassingly sloppy cropping job, I got rid of all the comics I was selling. Me and Kasey and Ashley rocked those tables. Ladies Night! Tons of people showed up (thanks to our much more thorough aggressive advertising this year), including a bunch of my teachers, former and current, plus a surprise visit from Scott McCloud, who apparently is doing a seminar or something on comics this weekend and told everyone to come to Fresh Meat! Waoh it was awesome.

I had two comics at my table: one was Alligator Day, a three-pager I worked on last semester, and the second was part one of Flamingo Island, the major backbone comic of my senior portfolio. I plan to have the second part available for MoCCA 2009, and I will probably have a few more copies of Alligator Day in there as well.

I'm so happy with both covers!

Up next: Cartooning/Illustration Open Studios, Senior Portfolio Review Day, Hanni's Pasta Party, and Graduation.
