Haven’t really posted any comics while we work on Read More Comix #2, but here’s one from the sketchbook as i procrastinate…
Don’t you just love going to a baseball game and having the asshole behind you scream and complain the whole time? As if they could really do better than the professionals out there? It’s unfortunate, but it’s also a reality of the game. Also a reality of the game is fly balls, so keep your eye on them and your mouth in check or you might be dealt some sweet home run justice.
my chest is empty…
Comics people are a passionate bunch!
But also on the weekend, i saw my first sighting of snow… so…. pessimism will prevail…
Change is in the air people!
On another note, this past weekend i tabled my first Canzine and had a goddamn blast! Sold lots of comics and stuff. Met lots of really cool people. Won the Zine Race. Chester Brown told me he liked my Canzine poster. A really great day all in all. Thanks to everyone who came out and supported the comics and zine scene here in Toronto. It really means a lot to not only me, but all the other makers struggling to get a sliver of your attention.
And on the last note, i’ve started a comix club with a couple of my maker friends. We haven’t really fleshed anything out yet, but you can expect weekly comics again from yours truly (if you miss posting a week, you owe a round of beers). Also, weekly postings from the rest of the crew: Andy Harris, James Spencer and David Craig.
Follow us on twitter: @readmorecomix or tumblr: readmorecomix.tumblr.com or both!
In other news, I’ve joined a “comix band”. No, were not playing music, but more of a collective mentality around comics. This stuff gets really lonely, so it’s nice to be doing things with others. What this collective actually means, we dunno yet, but we’ve agreed to post a comic a week each (and i could use the inspiration to get back to weekly posting). I’m pretty excited to be working with some top notch cartoonists!
You can follow our comics postings on our new twitter handle too! @readmorecomix
