An Advice Comic Up on Bitch!


Greetings, Earth friends!

I wrote a lengthy comic response to a person inquiring about how to combat sexism at her service job. You can find it here.

A big thank you to friends Natalie and Matilda, who lent me their advice for this piece!

Sincerely,

Ponyo & I visit the library with our book, "Tell It Like It Tiz"!


Shello! In January, my collaborator Marc Parker and I drove to Olympia, Washington, and told people at the Olympia Timberland Library about our senior citizen zine-turned-book, "Tell It Like It Tiz". I brought my dog, Ponyo, who is also a friend to the participants of our project. Here are some photos:



Would you like us to visit your school, club, or library?
We love to share the community art project wealth. 
Send me a cool email here

And lo! I am going to be featured in an art show that is happening RIGHT NOW in Chicago, Illinois! ChiCOLDgo! Anyway, if you go there, you can buy some cool xeroxed prints for the low low price of $10. And that is no lie. So check it out!

Have a nice weekend, and I'll see you at MoCCA!!!

Second up! Nicole has joined the ranks of the Ms. Opinionated advice blog over at Bitch Magazine. Check it out! 

Oh, hey, while you're checking things out! If you hadn't already heard, Nicole has tapped into her inner-millennial and finally hopped on the Tumblr band-wagon! That's right, you can now follow Nicole from the comfort of your dashboard, it's never been easier.

And as if things weren't heating up enough already, Spring is on its way! The snow is melting, the grey clouds are floating away or whatever, and that means *convention season* is almost here!

Sad sad sad sad sad sad news

Dear friend, brilliant cartoonist, and beautiful human being Catherine Peach has passed away.

Catherine was a Homorobics regular, purveyor of Unicorn smut, most treasured clothing-exchange-party guest, and was working on a graphic memoir about having a rare brain tumor at the time of her passing.

She will be dearly missed.

I Have A Tumblr. Hold for applause.

Hello friends.
I have more news for you.
I am stepping into 2007 and having a Tumblr.
You can access it here to see my 2014 Hourly Comics Day diaries.

Please do the things that you do with Tumblr,
liking or sharing or reblogging. You know.
I am not being purposely dense here (like people who call it "The interwebs"), or fake-techphobic,
I genuinely am just getting a hang of Tumblr.

The Return of Homorobics, 7 Days, and a Grunge Photo.

Hello out there!
2 things:
1. I am re-launching Homorobics, now titled Punk Aerobics to fit the scene here in happenin' White River Junction, Vermont! The details are forthcoming, and will be posted on my Homorobics blog as they appear. Come do leg lifts with me if you are in the area!

2. Vermont's independent weekly paper, 7 Days, did a feature on yours truly, which you can read here.
It features an author photo taken by Ally Picard , who also took this photo of me with Wishbone a few years ago, for a grunge-themed dance night:
Wishbone looks very grunge, no?
Put that in your pipe and smoke it!

Have a nice week.
