[Tags|, , ]

Strumpet_BFF_Cover_4_lo_res

Get ready for the thrilling fourth issue of The Strumpet! It's up on Kickstarter right now - preorder your copy today!

I'm pretty excited because a) I have a brand-new story in here and b) because it's the first time I've drawn a Strumpet cover since Issue 1!

I'm so pleased to introduce the artists for this issue:

Anna Bas Backer - Audrey Weber - Becky Hawkins - Casandra Grullon -

Cliodhna Lyons - Colleen Frakes - Dre Grigoropol - Ellen Lindner -

Evie Fridel - Francesca Cassavetti - Glynnis Fawkes - Hayley Gold -

Kasia Zawadka - Katie Fricas - Lara Antal - Noel Franklin -

Patrice Aggs - Rachel Yelding

This latest installment is all about lady friends -- from best friends forever to friend with a question mark. Our fourth issue explores the highs, the lows, the joys, the sorrows, the awesomeness and the awkwardness of female friendship. Come for the sexual tensions, sibling rivalries, and other miscellaneous dramatics! Stay for the heartwarming resolutions, and for the sharing of fried foodstuffs. We're aiming for 50+ pages of comics, reviews, and interviews - this issue's interview subject is Robot Dreams and Bake Sale author Sara Varon.


Check it out, here!

Wahoo! I FINALLY finished my Strumpet story! I can't believe it!

Bluebird Show Starts September 15! [Aug. 27th, 2014|05:14 pm]

coney_print_lineart_color


This week I'm working on two new prints for a show at Bluebird Coffee, in New York's East Village.


All four prints are themed around Black Feather Falls, so this is pretty exciting for me...this one shows Tina exploring New York City in 1939, checking out the new Parachute Jump at Coney Island. It's fun to go back to one of my favorite New York spots.


Thanks so much to cartoonist, curator and coffee expert Lara Antal for inviting me to show at Bluebird...it's a great downtown spot and I'm happy to be showing my work there!


I'll also be selling this new print, and a second new one soon to be revealed, at this year's SPX - see you there!


PS For you Black Feather Falls fans, there's a new page up at Act-i-vate! Just one week until the finale of Book Three - Book Four starts October 1st!

The Black Feather Falls - 3 More Pages, Live now on Act-i-vate! [Aug. 20th, 2014|09:11 pm]

BFF_book_3_pg_31_activate_lindner


It's been a big week for Black Feather Falls (yay for the Ignatz love!), not least because we finally have contact with the gentleman who seems to be at the center of the brutal murder that kicked this whole tale off. But is Albert Blacking exactly what he seems? And will Tina be mentally strong enough to continue, after her experience as the target in a knife-throwing act?


Read this week's update at Act-i-vate, where Books One, Two and Three are up for your perusal! Enjoy...
