SPX DEBUT! actually this came out at RIPE in Providence but if you weren’t there THIS IS THE DEBUT! of Other Way! The second book in the Thought Power Series, Now & Here. The first book is almost totally sold out, I think Caroline Paquita has like ten copies left on her etsy.
I’m riding the green meanie down to SPX in Bethesda, MA this weekend sharing a table with my Chicago buddy, Eisner nominated, Sam Sharpe! @ C7B 
Sam is nominated for an Ignatz, along with two other Sams ?????change your name to Sam.
Another Chicago pal Anya Davidson is also nominated for her web series Band For Life,featuring a band called GunTit. (Just like my band with Tom Toye and Laura Perez by the same name ;) 
Please come by and say hulloh, it’s not so far from Baltimore or Washington or Philly.

Comic based loosey goosey on that Johnny Cash song “One Piece At a Time”, made for latest comics issue of Lumpen Magazine. Reformatted for easier tumblr reading (i hope) used to be squished onto two big pages.

In Betty Beaver we trust.
Somewhere off 87 en route to secret spot.
The Beaver, engineer of the forest, whose dams can span up to 2,800 feet. I believe the entirety of the Laurentides landscape has been sculpted by hundreds of years of beaver engineering. I was creepin’ round their territory over the weekend and bore witness to 6 tiered dams of varying size and shape that moved water in a spiral fashion down from one mountain valley lake to another. The beavers had laid logs in a zig zag pattern leading up to their lodge (to dissuade predators or competitors?) and the lodge itself was laid on a grid of logs laid perfect 90 degrees square. They dropped heavy objects in the water and slapped tails tellin’ us to leave and we scrambled out on one of the slopes they’d mowed clean, for food and perhaps readying it for new depths. Where once were nursery pools for their young higher up on the mountain now were gurgling brooks edged by thick moss and mushrooms. Beautiful! Great job beavers. These animals are the best landscapers on earth. 
Beavers. Amazing. Betty Beaver, good egg sandwich thanks!

I made another book published with Pegacorn Press , this is #2 in the Now & Here Series. Riso guts and screen printed covers. 300 printed. I was sweating a lot and laughing while I printed the covers. I’m going to read from the first book at Ada books on Friday, loudly? 

That’s the magic can of custard powder.

It’s over here

working cover for Other Way, based loosely on an ancient can of Royal Custard Powder,  it&#8217;s an abduction volunteer pamphlet. It&#8217;s Now &amp; Here #2, just barely. Screen printed cover and riso guts on orange and blue paper.
debuting Aug 2nd at Ripe. I&#8217;ll also be doing a reading at Ada books Friday the 1st, (I think) with Blaise Larmee and Alabaster, that&#8217;s all they told me, I don&#8217;t know anything.  Let me &#8220;read&#8221; to you. sure to be hi-larious.
