Locust Moon 2014

Two incidents from the Locust Moon Comics Festival back in October. I drew them at the time, but just finished inking them this week because I am terrible.

They’re obviously doing it just to spite me

(actual answer: life drawing is about realism; cartooning is about simplification)

Here are 2 of my drawing from that night:

Hourly Comics Day, 2014

Each year on Feb. 1, a bunch of cartoonists draw a comic each hour that they are awake. I’m finally posting the ones I finished this year:

2013: The Year of Bill

daily500-a

… that’s pretty much what the last four months have been like.

Back in April I spent about 3 weeks doing nothing but working on a 6-page comic for the Anything That Loves anthology. Then I posted it online in August (after the book was published), and the Internet exploded. It got tens of thousands of views on Tumblr, and was re-posted on Upworthy, the Huffington Post, and The Nib (linking that last one, because those awesome people actually pay me). I was profiled on Buzzfeed, was a guest on a Chicago NPR morning show, and talked to Dan Savage on his podcast (near the end). It was translated into Portugese, and I got a lot of followers in Brazil!

So that’s all been awesome but overwhelming, and I don’t feel like I’ve capitalized on my fame as much as I could. But still – all that puts 2013 solidly in the “WIN” column.

But that’s not all I did this year! I drew 50 pages of Bar Scrawl this year, and about 30 pages of additional comics!

My brain is broken.

Also, I had a solo gallery show at the 20-Sided Store in Williamsburg, where I displayed most of my Dungeons & Dragons art!

I published 4 mini-comics this year (Hot Men of the Monster Manual, Bar Scrawl: Carroll Gardens, Bar Scrawl: Williamsburg, part deux, and a mini version of Orientation Police (they’re all in the store). I only exhibited at 2 conventions (MoCCA – where I was a panelist for the first time!) and Locust Moon Comics Fest in Philly, though I

In personal stuff: I got to show my parents around New York City for a couple of days, which was really fun. I traveled to Virginia a few times to visit my brother and to play with my nephews. I survived jury duty in Brooklyn, saw some great theater (Monkey’s Journey to the West, Cinderella!), played in two D&D games and started running my own game.

The Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage on the federal level in June, so I attended two gay weddings this year, and I officiated at a third!

I’m working on fixing that in 2014.

Finally – this is the 500th installment of my journal comic. I think it’s time for another book!
