Terribly Comforting Food [Comic]
Posted March 18, 2013 at 12:00 am
I don't know why, but I find maul Chinese food to somehow be comforting.  It is terrible and tastes nothing like real Chinese food.  But I still can't completely hate on it.

NO SPX FOR ME


Small Press Expo is one of my favorite shows of the year.  The attendees are always on the hunt for new comics.  The exhibitors wear their love of comics on their sleeve.  The vibe is so energetic, it makes you want to do comics always.  Fucking love this show.

Yesterday was SPX table registration day.  Usually, it's in the beginning of March.  You fill out your form, mail in a check, and hope you make the cut. This year, they wanted to modernize the process and spent an extra few weeks testing out a new online system.

It didn't quite go as planned.

Sadly, I, along with some fellow locals, was unable to register for tables.  By the time things were somewhat sorted, they were already sold out.  This is great for SPX because it means that more and more creators want to do the show.  But for those of us who have supported it for a few years now, it completely blows.  It's going to be increasingly more difficult to get in to a show I love so dearly.

I'm half seriously considering renting a big ass vehicle of some kind and selling comics out of it, food truck style.  It sounds like an absolutely stupid idea which means it probably needs to happen.  We'll see how things pan out this week.  They're still trying to sort out who did and didn't get their payments in on time.

Now excuse me while I cry into my terrible Chinese food.

Hello YP Fam!

So clearly, I haven't been around the site much. I still answer the occasional comment that pops up, but I haven't posted anything proper in a good long while. I didn't want to sound like I'm making excuses, but I think maybe it's worth it to just let you know what's been going on.

Good stuff! But super busy!!

So me and my friend Jeremy Whitely have landed a three book deal for a property that we've been pitching for a while. And I'm in the thick of inking pages right now. I probably won't be done until end of this year, early next which is why I haven't had a chance to get back to YP in a while now.

I usually have a bajillion things going on all at once which should come as not small surprise. But I've dropped a lot of extra stuff (haven't even blogged in months) to concentrate on getting this first book done and I'm still running behind, even with 3am being a very familiar time of day for me.

I do plan on getting to YP once this first book is turned in. And hopefully, I'll be able to time manage much better for the next two volumes so I can have some breathing space.

So that's where I've been. I haven't given up on YP, I just haven't had time to do anything else but work on this first book. I'll be pimping the shit out of it when the publisher makes the official announcement to be sure. But until then, it's back to the grind for me!

I've spent a month with the iPad Pro and have some thoughts on what types of creators will find this to be a useful tool. This would have been a very different review without the reveal of iPadOS this past week.

Please take my thoughts with many, many, MANY grains of sand. I don't have other devices to compare the Pro to so it's not a very thorough review in my mind. But I try to answer the question, "What type of creator is the iPad Pro for?"
