Ohhh man. Sorry about the late update, you guys! Yesterday was a pretty big deadline for our Thesis Seminar class, and I was up for 24 hours straight preparing for it. After that, well…see the title of this post.
It’s been a pretty eventful few days, though! After the dust settled yesterday afternoon, I realized that two things had happened while I wasn’t looking. I turned 23 on Sunday (hurray!), and–oh yeah–some of my work was reviewed on the Comics Journal! Rob Clough wrote a really nice piece on two of the minicomics I gave him at MoCCA as well as two minis by the most excellent Holly Foltz. (Holly’s a recent CCS alum who draws hilarious comics, contributed to the pin-up calendar, and is an all around cool person.) You can read the article here.
Speaking of the calendar, I’ve got a preview for you guys. Here’s the image I drew for the month of January:
That’s the lovely Colleen Frakes in a homage to Art Frahm, master of the celery/pink granny panties combo. Not to shamelessly repeat myself, but I’ll be selling the calendar this image appears in person at PIX and online after that. They’re full-color, $7, and feature a lot of fun pin-up drawings of CCS girls by CCS girls. Contributing artists include Amelia Onorato, Bailey Sharp, Beth Hetland, Betsey Swardlick, CJ Joughin, Colleen Frakes, the aforementioned Holly Foltz, Jen Vaughn, Laura Terry, Melanie Gillman, and of course Nomi Kane and myself. As I mentioned before, I drew Colleen and was drawn by the very talented Laura. Please email me if you’d like to reserve a copy! :D
Okay, that’s it for me for today. Check back tomorrow for a 100% real, live, on-time update!
