I've been doing these comics for a few years now, and things seem to have gotten to a new high point, hopefully to get to a higher one in the future.  So, last month, Biguglyrobot Press in Nagoya published my Alone in Kyoto book.  It's available at:

The Beguiling Books & Art in Toronto, Ontario (in time for TCAF! though it won't be showing there)
Austin Books & Comics in Austin, Texas
Forbidden Planet NYC in New York, New York
Chicago Comics in Chicago, Illinois

As well, it is being distributed by the awesome Birdcage Bottom Books, able to send all over the place, and still through Biguglyrobot Publishing in Japan.

I did an interview for the Deconstructing Comics podcast, which you can listen to here:…

It's been an interesting spring all around.  I'm starting work on new stuff now, but very happy that the zines I was doing three years back have matured into something bigger and better.

I hate Deviant Art, but I love the people I interact with here.  Thanks for following along.

I'm a family man.

Lord it's so hot and I ain't got a lot
Don't need much but I ain't satisfied right now
I just want water I just want an ocean
An endless river to wash away all of my tears

You know what I do with llama badges? Hit that fucking 'x' button. No thanks, and I'll never give one to you.

I'm staying with our friends Kimberly and Kayskay this weekend and I showed them some of your work. Kayskay is from Japan and Kimberly learned Japanese in college. We've had a great time and have enjoyed learning about the culture. The subject of chopsticks standing in food came up and I immediately though of your work. Kimberly commented that the work was very good and that the story was accurate. So kudos to you!

Thanks a lot!  For Japanese, the work is 当たり前 (completely normal/expected), but for outsiders, it is a cultural recording of sorts.  If only I could analyse Canada to the same degree.

I find it crazy to think someone's a fan!  Kind words, I'm a fan of yours.

Thanks for the fave. dA told me I wasn't watching you, but I see all your stuff somehow! Anyhow, I'm watching now. Thanks!
