I dearly hope everyone has a delightful --and safe-- time at FANEXPO Boston. With you guys in spirit, I assure you.
Looking ahead to next month, I do hope to see everyone drop by my table in Lebanon, New Hampshire for the first-ever Upper Valley Comic Expo.
In the meantime... look after one another my dears. The bullies are getting louder (and bolder) and more folks are getting scared. It is incumbent upon us to push back against this darkness that is threatening to engulf us. And I don't just mean the pandemic, here. I promise one day I'll gush all about Shang-Chi and Suicide Squad and Doctor Who, but... just now I'm reaching back to an older nerdy fandom from which to draw a little strength.

Just about that time again (at last!). Looking forward to seeing all of you in Rochester, NH at Jetpack Comics for the long-anticipated return of Free Comic Book Day!
I'll be doling out my usual assortment of free swag and ready (more than ready) to discuss all things nerdy. Drop by my table and let's catch up!

It's June. A selection of some of last year's Black LGBTQ leaders and inspirational figures... who had to face twice as much bigotry. Today also marks my first full year of drawing this series. #blacklivesmatter #pride #showup #dothework #teachtruth

Um, no. Not participating. Just too much potential for cruelty. In fact I'm content to retire this so-called "holiday" forever; it's certainly the one "holiday" that I loathe even more than Valentines' Day.
There's a world of difference between a clever prank... and taking delight in upsetting or hurting someone. #cantyoutakeajoke

Womens' History Month 2021: some truly fascinating biographies. Educate yourself on the lives of women such as Violette Neatley, Kathleen Neal Cleaver, Prathia Hall, Hallie Quinn Brown, or Septima Poinsette. Did you know about Sarah Mae Flemming?

RIP Rowena Morrill. Your work inspired me more than I let on. Thank you.

Happy New Year, my dears. Love you all and hoping for a bit of (positive) change in all of our fortunes, in 2021 --at least, I'm permitting myself a smidgin of optimism, for the first time in... well, a good long while.
Very much hoping for some proper comic con appearances this year. I have high hopes for the awesomeness that will undoubtedly be the Upper Valley Comic Expo this coming May 1, and, later in the summer I'll be helping celebrate Free Comic Book Day, which will be on August 14, this year. So: see you all there, amidst a new chapter for us all.

Black Lives Matter. It's not just a trendy hashtag, people. Our brothers and sisters of colour are --I suspect-- getting just a little tired of spelling it out for us. Get to studying.
#dothework Start here if you need a jumping-on point.

No, no "inktober" from me, this year. But if you're following my professional Facebook page, you've likely seen the ongoing series of biography sketchcard "lessons" that I've been steadily posting since June. Please go take a look at them and embark on your course of study. This is just too important an issue.
In the meantime I hope you and your families are staying safe, and that we may one day connect in person --be it at comic con, your favourite comic book store, or just someplace where nerds congregate. I miss you, my dears!
