It has been a while since the last post, so I think it’s time for some updates.

Artistic Expressions – July 12th
I will be selling my comics at The Coffee House at Chestnut and Pine in Burlington WI from 11am to 2pm, so stop on by, buy some books, check out the other artists, the usual spiel.
New news for views
It has been a while since I posted anything here, so I should update everybody on what’s been going on art-wise for me.
-I have a piece on display at Artworks in Kenosha. It is part of show called Draw Works, and there are plenty of other artists to see there. The show only goes until March 28th, though, so if you want to see it, get over there soon.
-I will be at Chicago Zine Fest on Saturday, May 9th from 11am to 6pm. I’ll be selling my comics there, including the latest issue of Drannik & Lizzep. More info about the show, including where it’s located, can be found here.
-Finally, I may be doing an inbound art residency for comics and zines in Chicago later in May. Details are tentative at the moment, but you can find out more about what that entails here.
Drannik & Lizzep #6 now available
Drannik & Lizzep #6 is now available on Indyplanet. Click here to get a copy for yourself.
Also, I will be at the opening reception of the Draw Works show at Artworks in Kenosha on February 14th, as I’ve got two pieces in the show. Feel free to stop by and check out my stuff, and maybe even purchase one of them for yourself.
Some updates on things that are happening
Since it has been a while since my last post, I figured I should probably update on what’s going on:
-Drannik & Lizzep #6 is in the works as I type this. I have completed writing the stories that will go in the issue, and will begin drawing them in the next few days.
-Once again, I have entered the AmericaSCORES Milwaukee Inspired Art Auction. My artwork is featured here. The auction will take place on October 24th at the Milwaukee Public Market.
-I have purchased a table for Milwaukee Zine Fest, which is on November 8th at Polish Falcon in Milwaukee. I will be selling comics and maybe some drawings as well.
-A comic page of mine was featured in Left of the Lake #6. Well, it was actually part of the mini-comic book “Squint”, but it’s there. Go pick up a copy if you happen to be in the Kenosha area.
Artistic Expressions 2014 – Saturday July 13th
Hello again. I will be a part of the Artistic Expressions event at Henry and Wanda’s in Racine. The event is on July 13th from 3 until 8 pm. I plan on selling comics there, including the recently completed Drannik & Lizzep #5, as well as Mr. Smiley and One Dot, two one-shot comics I’ve done. More info can be found in the link below. Hope to see you there.
Free Comic Book Day this Saturday
It’s been a while since I posted anything, so I just wanted you all to know that I will be at Rockhead’s Comics and Games in Kenosha on Saturday giving away a comic that I made for Free Comic Book Day. Stop on by if you want a copy.
Meta Con in One Week, Plus Other News
A week from today, I will be going to Meta Con in Minneapolis to sell copies of Drannik & Lizzep, as well as drawings I’ll make on the spot. I will be posting pictures of the event afterwards.
In other news, I am currently working on a new project: a spinoff of Drannik & Lizzep starring Mischa. It is a story involving mental illness, and I’m getting the National Alliance on Mental Illness, or NAMI, in Racine involved. In other words, this comic might have more than just local exposure. I’m also going to be talking to a reporter from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel soon about this story, as well as all my other comic related doings. I will post more about these things as they happen.
Some brief updates: I’ve added some more stuff to the portfolio section of the site, including the image above. Yes, I am planning on making Drannik & Lizzep Ts to support the comic book, but it might be a while before any are printed off.
In the meantime, Meta Con is coming up in a month, so if you are in the Minneapolis area and want to meet me/purchase some comics, that would be the perfect time to do so.
Finally, Drannik & Lizzep has returned to the Kindle store. If you want to purchase a copy for your ebook collection, click the link in the previous sentence.
CAKE Chicago and future events
A week or two back, I went to CAKE, a free alternative comics show down in Chicago. I must have met with at least a dozen different artists, and I bought/traded quite a few comics as well. As an indie cartoonist myself, it felt good to be surrounded by comics that were more alternative or indie like my own. It’s nice to have an opportunity to expose Drannik & Lizzep to a larger crowd, and the artists at CAKE were no exception. Seeing the amount of talent down there from across the country makes me even more psyched for the con I’m going to.
Speaking of which, I will be in Minneapolis from August 30th to September 1st for Meta Con, which I am so looking forward to. I’m hoping to sell a lot of Drannik & Lizzep books there, and I’m hoping to meet some people out there, so that’s always a plus. Between now and then, though, I will be at a couple of different art-related functions, including Drink & Draw later this week in Milwaukee, as well as teaching a cartooning class this coming Saturday. Hopefully more will come between now and then.
