Oh em god, you guys, I am so sorry about the long delay in updates! I didn’t mean to ignore the blog for so long, but this is what the last month has felt like for me:
I’ve been having a good time, but with HeroesCon, moving drama, Drawn Out Storytelling prep and performances, computer failure, preparing for my camps next month, and trying to print a bunch of books and stickers, my mind has been in, like, eleven different places at once! I think that I should be back on track with a decent updating schedule now, though. I’m in NYC for the next week doing shows for Drawn Out Storytelling, which you guys should totally come see if you’re in the area! We’ve got three shows coming up:
The Adventure to Misadventure – Friday, June 24 at 8:45 pm
Rubber and Glue: Stories to and from Geeks, Dweebs, and Losers – Sunday, June 26 at 8:00 pm
Identities: The Secret Fantasy of Our Reality – Wednesday, June 29 at 8:45 pm
Featuring stories by Cyndi Freeman (illustrated by myself), Steve Zimmer (illustrated by Pat Barrett), Ophira Eisenberg (illustrated by Paul Swartz and myself), and Jefferson (illustrated by Pat Barrett and Ray B.).
All of these shows will feature musical accompaniment by Mike O’Malley, Ray Gehring, Steve Lipshutz, and Carson Moody, and they’re all part of the Comic Book Theater Festival at the Brick Theater. Tickets are $15, and you can get them online here or at the door. We’ve been working super hard on this show, and we’d love it if you could stop by!
Speaking of which, it’s about time for us to head over to Williamsburg and do some prep work before tonight’s show. If you have a chance, please come say hi! You’ll be treated to a delightful combination of live storytelling, music, and illustrations such as these:
This is an image I did as practice for Joanna Bradley’s story last week. I’ll be working in a different style tonight, as the story I’m illustrating is slightly less classical and Sapphic, but I promise it’ll be fun. Hope to see you there!
