Let's see! I know I know, I've been bad at posts, but listen, okay I am working on three new comics as well as trying to finish up on these zany DWTS prints. I will hopefully be back on track next month/year! But oh, look! Listen! This is so cool! My story "Arroz Caldo" has been included in the Notables list in the Best American Comics 2011 anthology. I actually first found out about it when I was looking at the book in Alexander Books near my work. There is a great mix of well-known and newly-discovered talent in this one, making it, I think, one of strongest volumes in the series. (And yes, I thought that BEFORE I saw my name in the Notables list, okay?!) Anyway, below is a link to the complete list.
Speaking of lists, now that 2011 is almost over, I finally remembered to post this about 2010! Yay! Thanks to Rob Clough for inexplicably putting Whirlwind Wonderland at #25! Very honored.
Anyway, have a Happy New Year's everyone! I'm very thankful for the great experiences I have had and all the inspiring people I have met in 2011. I hope for only great things for everyone in the coming year! Be safe and be happy!

Big news here! Cartoonists and pals, Lark Pien, Renee French and I started an online blog and shop called HO, HO! SNAPPERS! Don't ask me how we came up with that name. I think it stemmed from some sort of angst. Actually I KNOW it did because that is how we operate. Anyway, we've always tried to collaborate here and there and finally we'll be doing some crazy artsy stuff together through this here tumblr thing. Here's the link!
My latest minicomic, "Outta This Comes the Crazy" which debuted at the Minneapolis Indie Comics Expo last month is available for sale on there! Also some of my prints from the H+K DWTS Gocco Project are also available for sale too. Eventually all the prints will be added there for your shopping needs. Please check our site out! We will try to update the blog with new items everyday. I'll still be posting stuff on this blog, too! I know I haven't been posting as often as I should be but know that a lot of projects are going on behind the scenes and will be viewable for your beautiful eyes soon!
