Hey there everyone! I have a very busy October coming up. This weekend I will be at the Alternative Press Expo  all day Sat Oct 4th and Sun Oct 5th. If you've never been this is a fantastic little convention that highlights the self-publishing and indie comics community of San Francisco. You can get a single day ticket for $10 or a two day pass for just $15. APE has moved to a new location this year, the Fort Mason Center at 2 Marina Blvd, SF. I will be there with CCA at tables 400, 401 and 402. I am also going to be on one panel, "Teaching Comics: Academia and Sequential Art" on Saturday from 6 to 6:45. The panel will be hosted by Justin Hall. Trinidad Escobar, Nathan Fox, Alec Longstreth and Matt Silady will be speaking with me. Stop by and say hello if you'll be there! 

The following weekend I will be the Second Saturday Cartoonist at the Charles M Schulz Museum on Sat Oct 11th. I will be there from 1-3pm showing original work, talking about my process and selling my comics. Despite being a Sonoma County resident my whole life I've actually never been to this museum before so I am really looking forward to my visit! 

Also~ I'm looking forward to Halloween! My best friend and I are planning an awesome Harry Potter themed party for just the two of us :3 
  • Listening to: One Direction

AAAHHHHH!! Oh man, all your stuff is sooo great!! I LOVED The Thief's Tale and The List (we've read a lot of the same books!)!! Bummed I couldn't get the Cardboard Box... You'll have to go to APE again next year so I can get it! Thanks for all the bookmarks and new webcomics! You really inspirational to meet, and glad to have met you. I wish you the best of luck on all of your art! 

We'll make you an honorary officer of Fandomania tomorrow, and give Ravenclaw some points for being awesome! 

Don't Forget to Be Awesome (though how could you?!)

-Alex (that who kinda flipped out when he saw your table :D)

(also, saw you're a Night Circus fan!)

Thank you very much for all the kind words :) I had a lovely time at APE and definitely hope to go again (though I hear it will be in San Jose next year- that's the rumor, anyway.) I think I just have one more convention coming up this year, which will be the East Bay Alternative Book and Zine Fest in Berkeley on Dec 6th. It will be my first time so I hope it's good~

(Yes I am indeed a Night Circus fan. I have made Night Circus tickets in the past!)
