MICE was amazing! Great expo, people, former teachers, sales, attendance, B movies watched in the crowded hotel room. I got to meet some Jesus Loves Lesbians, Too fans!! All A+ times. And hanging out with my crew is always tops.

Locust Moon in Phili, not so great, but at least I hung out with Nick and we got ice cream, so that helped. Plus the amazing Andrea Tsurumi took this great pic of me with my wares. (Thanks Andrea!)

Next stop on the expo train is MoCCA in April! (Hopefully I'll have a camera by then.)
SPX 2013 was pretty great! Our table was at the end of a small hallway at the end of the back corner, so not the ideal location, we definitely lost some foot traffic. And Nick and I accidentally ended up sharing our half table with like 4 other people, (one of whom is now our arch enemy), but pretty great expo besides that!
I don't have a camera, but friends took some pics (Thanks guys!) There's actually a great picture of Nick and I wearing sunglasses indoors, but I can't find it online, so here's this one the lovely Caitlin took!

Also! Apparently when you submit your comic for an Ignatz award, even if you don't get to be a nominee, you are automatically considered for the Library of Congress' permanent comics collection!! Jesus Loves Lesbians, Too Volumes One and Two are finding a permanent home in the Library of Congress!
We are pretty excited about it :)
Next Stop, Massachusetts Independent Comics Expo (MICE) in Cambridge, MA Sept 28-29th!
Then the Locust Moon Fest in Philadelphia, PA Oct 5th!
In high school, when several my friends decided to learn guitar, Wish You Were Here was the song they tried to learn first. I hadn't heard the song since I was a kid and one of my oldest memories came flooding back.
This was my birthday present to my lovely Mom this past Sunday. I still think of Wish You Were Here as a lullaby from her to me. Any other children of hippies have this problem? :p
Hey folks! I'll be exhibiting at the Small Press Expo in Bethesday, MD with my buddy Nick Offerman. I'll be peddling my Jesus Loves Lesbians, Too wares. Table W47A, come by and say hi and buy our things!
