Hey lookit, it’s ME featured on the cover of Maple Key Comics #3!  Don’t miss my Headspace and Space Kitchen spots either, ya cuties. I’m honored to be a part of this periodic anthology celebrating up-n’-coming independent comics creators, and collecting some of the best recent work coming out of the Center for Cartoon Studies (cartoonstudies), including Ignaz winner Sophie Goldstein (redinkradio) and Ignatz nom Luke Howard (andsoluke), not to mention talented folks like Sasha Steinberg (sahsashas), Iris Yan, Neil Brideau (ohboycomics), Dan Rinylo (drinylo), Laurel Holden (angstuniversity) …. and on and on! It’s a charmingly twisted collection that’s full of surprises.

You can purchase each individual issue in paperback from my Counterintuitive Comics Store or in cheap n’ fast digital form at the Maple Key Shop, or indulge yourself in my discount Maple Key Issues #1-3 Bundle. Cozy up with with this pile of good reads this autumn and discover some new favorites!

Some quick portraits of the just-too-elegant Sasha and Johnny Velour I drew in the front row at the Ignatz Award ceremonies this weekend at spx!  Sasha Velour ( sahsashas ) was a shimmering undersea dream in teal paired with a long blonde Donatella wig, and Johnny Velour ( vymmagazine ) was her perfect accessory, topped with a mint tulle bow.  Despite her obvious shyness, Sasha graciously accepted her “unexpected” hostess duties from James Sturm and awarded bricks with aplomb. <3

Who sold the “all feelings are valid” print at spx? I recall two friendly women at the table, but I don’t remember their company’s name and I can’t find any mention of the print online. Anyone know?

Me!  That was me, Laurel Lynn Leake, and that print was one of a three part Headspace series I made for maplekeycomics.  I’m so glad it spoke to you! You can buy it on my Counterinutitive Comics Store, alone or discounted with its two buddies. C:


spx was utterly joyful this year!  So much thanks to everyone who stopped by my table to pick up comics and prints, and for all the conversations I got to share this weekend on mental illness, queerness, and making comics.  A huge congratulations to all the Ignatz winners and nominees too, including my friends redinkradio, andsoluke, and cathyboy! I feel so, so lucky to be a part of this community and be able to table and attend with all my buddies this year.  &lt;3 View Larger
