Hello friends!
I’m really excited to announce that the first event in my 3-week-long Tomboy book tour will be at the historic Brattle Theatre in Harvard Square, on August 27th at 6pm!  This event is being put on by Hub Comics in Union Square, Somerville.  
Some people have asked why we are having this at the Brattle Theatre, instead of just doing an in-store signing at Hub Comics itself, and the answer is two-fold:
The Brattle has been a long-time collaborator with the Harvard Bookstore, hosting author events with comic artists the likes of Charles Burns, Chris Ware, Craig Thompson, and Daniel Clowes.  While I am not a monolithic male comic artist, my Alone Forever book release at Brookline Booksmith had an audience of close to 80 people, with standing room only available to a sizable portion of the crowd, so when planning an event with Hub, we wanted to make sure we could accommodate a crowd of that size.  I am also putting together an A/V presentation about the making of Tomboy, which  I hope will be both educational and entertaining: showing this at the Brattle will ensure that not only will everyone have a seat, but everyone will be able to see what is happening on stage as well.  Unfortunately this means we have to charge admission to the event and were really torn about having to do so, but we settled on the cheap price of $5 per ticket.  Your $5 admission is also a coupon to get $5 off the cover price of Tomboy, so if you come to event and buy a copy of the book, you are getting into the event for FREE.  And not only that, but the Brattle Theatre on August 27th will be the first place on the planet that Tomboy will be sold, a whole week before it is available in bookstores!
Please come to the Brattle Theatre on August 27th to support a local comic artist, a local comic shop, and a local theatre, all of which enrich your community. Tickets are available online on the Brattle’s website, or in person at both the Brattle Theatre and Hub Comics.
See you there!

from Kati: “This piece has a lot of meaning for me. I provide it to charities like A Home for Greys that ask for auction donations. I donate part of the proceeds to Girls Rock Philly while…

"ESPECIALLY if you’re one of those people whose first response is “oh that’s so simple, anyone could make it who cares” If that’s the case why aren’t these designers and the companies that employ them making their own? It’s because 80% is the idea, knowing what words, what images, what ideas people like, and here on tumblr it’s REALLY easy to see what people like, it’s absolutely quantified in the notes attached to something. It’s a clear sign to a lazy designer or piece of shit company that something is a sure win, were it to become a tshirt."

I see the above stated attitude way too much in conversations about plagiarism, wherein some uneducated defender of people’s right to steal goes off about how the original work “wasn’t even that creative in the first place”. THAT IS BULLSHIT, and I’m glad that Jeanne was able to articulately state why, and really, only someone who is not an artist or creator themselves would carry that attitude anyway. Saying that an image is simple and obvious is not an excuse for someone else to just take it, and it’s actually an insult to the artist who made it: the best art looks effortless, that doesn’t mean that it is.

Credit work. Don’t steal. That should be the simple part.

Thanks for the recommendation, Powell’s Books!

I made an OK Cupid profile yesterday. Reading fuckyoulizprince's “Alone Forever” now.

Oh boy.

Good luck out there!

I’m all set up at table K-06 in the Small Press section of San Diego Comic Con: Alec Longstreth, Greg Means, and I are ready to serve you!
I’m holding a real copy of Tomboy in my hands for the first time ever.  For about 5 minutes after I opened the box they came in, I couldn’t even see the damn thing through all the joy-tears.  You guys, I seriously can’t wait for September 2nd so you can all hold it in your hands, too.

This is a custom “madball” I designed, sculpted and painted for my partner who collects them. It’s (obviously) inspired by Little Shop of Horrors but also carnivorous plants in general since he also likes those.  I made it for his birthday this past November.  These projects are fun for me because I almost never work in actual 3D and it’s a very different experience. My sculpting skills are pretty rudimentary. This is the one I made the year before though, so I think I’ve gotten a bit better! It’s made out of Das paper clay and painted with acrylics with glow in the dark sculpey teeth. I named her Audrey Spew.

AUDREY SPEW!  I love it.
