The Heights

Panel one and two feature my renditions of the Rockville Earth Treks climbing gym. For those of us who climb, there are two types of people in this world: those who love climbing and those who don't yet know that they love climbing. Whenever I can, I try to bring my friends to the climbing gym and throw them up on something.

I have to admit that I'm almost exclusively a gym monkey. There are some decent places to climb outdoors here in the DC Metro area, but most of my free time is in the evenings when it just doesn't make sense to climb outside. Also, we don't have our own outdoor gear so it's a little more difficult to just spontaneously hit a crag without some prior planning. The gym makes it easy to climb whenever we get the urge.

As for the fear of heights? Well, I'm still fucking terrified of heights. There are times when I'm paralyzed with fear on a rope and just can't move. But dealing with the fear gets a little easier the more I climb. It's a lot of damn fun and I highly encourage everyone to try it at least once. If a fraidy cat like me can get up a 40ft. climb, fucking anyone can do it!

I'm so excited!!!! School for Extraterrestrial Girls Volume 1: Girl on Fire is finally finished and ready for preorder!!! And if you click on that link, you can download and read the first chapter for free! If there's a limit to exclamation points, I'ma break that shit in this post!!!

Working with Jeremy on this book has been a true delight. There have been moments when I wanted to shout at Tara and moments when I just wanted to hug her as I was drawing pages. I've also learned a whole lot about what it takes to complete a long form project like this. Papercutz has been super supportive throughout the process and we couldn't have asked for a better team. I can't wait for everyone to get their hands on this book!!! I'll be sure to throw copies at everyone I see.

So now you can see what's taken me away from YP for so goddamn long. I'm taking a short break to finish up some projects that piled up during production, but I do intend to get back to some YP goodness. I probably won't be able to sustain a regular schedule since Book 2 is on the near horizon, but I plan on updating as I can.

If you would like to see a full preview of Book 1, I've posted the full colored book over at my Patreon in all its glory! I also post a weekly podcast over there with news and commentary on the art scene so if you're looking for things to occupy your brain for a few minutes, check it out!

Alright, that's it for now! I'll yell about all sorts of updates and such as they happen!

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!
