Drawing in anticipation of Chicago Zine Fest next weekend! I’ll be at table 61 next to Rebecca Mir as always. This year my project will be both audio and visual, so saddle up for an illustrated lo-fi mini-album of country/blues songs.

New illustrations that I did for an article about restorative justice are up at Next City…What a privilege to draw on a topic so important, relevant, and timely. Please READ and look!

I drew this today….My country duo, The Blue Irenes, will be hosting Crimson Glow at the Whistler this Thursday, August 22! We will present a mix c.d. (which will include a copy of this drawing), and then perform a set of originals and covers by, you guessed it, our favorite divas of country music!! If you’re in Chicago (or a short ride away), I hope to see you there!

June: CAKE, Not a Horse Girl, and Printer’s Row Lit Fest!

Ok…So, lots of things coming up. Most importantly, CAKE (Chicago Alternative Comics Expo) is happening June 15th and 16th, at the Center on Halsted in Chicago. I’ll be tabling with Rebecca Mir as usual! We’ll be right next to Oily Comics, which is cool, since they’re debuting my mini-comic Not a Horse Girl at the show! I’m so excited for its print debut…Reminder that you can see me read (and sing) from Issue #1 back in January, in this video from Brain Frame #10 (I can’t apologize ENOUGH for being out-of-tune). I will also be at Printer’s Row Lit Fest Sunday, June 9, at CAKE’s table, hanging out and signing/selling comics, 12-1 pm. Come visit!!!! This summer is going to be great, right?! In the meantime, here are a couple summer-related panels from NAHG #1.
