PORTLAND FOLKS: I’m gonna be selling at the Portland Zine Symposium on July 12th & 13th, 2014.
As usual, I’ll be tagging along with / tabling near my buddies from Silver Sprocket. I don’t know where our booths are but just listen for the knuckleheads yelling about punks, cats, and free haircuts. You’ll probably find us. (Update: we’ll be at table 24! See map above.)
I’ll have copies of Frankie Comics #1, Side A, Maple Key Comics #1, and Silver Sprocket will have all the copies of As You Were #1-3 and maybe even some Turnstile Comix. There will definitely be stickers, buttons, patches, and other assorted nonsense. Rumor has it we’ll even have work by our good friend Andy Warner (an editor of the Irene anthologies).
If you’re in town before the show, I’ll also have two original pages from myBeyond anthology story (written by Gabby) on display (and for sale) at thePortland Zine Symposium Art Show at Floating World Comics on July 11th. That’s pretty exciting.
See you soon, Portland! <3

The Portland Zine Symposium is an organization that since 2001 has put on events to celebrate and support small press and DIY culture. They host and assist with events throughout the year, then every summer hold a two day free conference with tablers from around the world, free workshops, and much more. The next Portland Zine Symposium starts with a skillshare event at the Independent Publishing Resource Center (IPRC) on July 11th and workshops and tabling is July 12th & 13th, 2014 at the Ambridge Events Center.

I’ll be at MeCAF in Portland, Maine this Sunday: representing Maple Key Comics with my buddy Josh Lees.
I’ll be at James Sturm’s table (or maybe the Center for Cartoon Studies table right next to James) selling copies of Maple Key #1, Frankie Comics #1, and 5”x10” prints of my Life With/Out a Cat comic (that I was supposed to have for TCAF).
Hope to see you there! <3
Hey, all! I’ll be at TCAF this weekend (May 10-11) and I couldn’t be more stoked. I’ll be upstairs this year at table 245 with copies of Side A, Frankie Comics, As You Were #2, Winter Bloo, Frankie stickers, and hopefully someprints of Life with/out a Cat!
