Wishing I could talk to Sarah Jacobson today. She was an inspiring underground filmmaker, writer, independent film advocate, and a really nice person. One of her first films was the early 90’s-iconic I Was a Teenage Serial Killer.
Today’s graphic novel research rabbit-hole: the proto-hippies and health foodies of 1940’s Los Angeles.
Date Palms, Oranges, and Other Stuffs, graphite and watercolor on paper, 7.5” x 5.5” - made for the Paper Farm exhibit at the Orange County (California) Great Park.
I adore vintage wood phone booths, so of course they will be appearing in Available Light. Check out these images of NYC’s last surviving vintage phone booths.
Graphic novel research rabbit hole: West Adams nightclubs and restaurants of the 1940’s.
Miss Lonelyhearts is going on hiatus while I complete my original graphic novel, Available Light. In the meantime, you can revisit the story so far by ordering your very own copies of issues #1 & #2 in my Etsy shop. Thanks for reading!
I love this portrait of me by the wonderful Jess Ruliffson. If you are near NYC, go see her solo exhibition of portraits of 100 cartoonists on Saturday, February 1 at LaunchPad Brooklyn. Robyn Chapman’s Paper Rocket Minicomics will also be publishing a collection of 50 of the best.
The comic anthology I edited, TABLEGEDDON, made the great Rob Clough’s Best of 2013 list, in the Short Form Comics category. We’re #42 out of 50 titles. With so many fantastic comics on his list (Zebadiah, Household, Hungry Bottom Comics: 2 Fags 2 Furious, Viewotron, Gorilla World, Powdered Milk, etc, etc, etc) this is an honor. The “competition” (as it were) was fierce. Thanks once again to Mr. Clough, aka Robbie C.
Again, I am thrilled to be a contributor to this awesome anthology.
