HEY NEW YORKERS!
I’m pleased to announce my first solo gallery show, opening tomorrow evening at BE GALLERY NYC (15 West 39th St, 11th Floor)
I’m showing my best comics/illustration work of the last 3 years, and will be selling many affordable prints of everything ($10-$20 each), as well as comic books. This is also an exclusive chance to see all my new pieces for MAPLE KEY COMICS which aren’t available anywhere online yet! I’m very proud of all this colorful queer art, and would love to share it with everyone over a lovely glass of wine. Please share and promote!!
SO If you are in NY and have a chance tomorrow evening (7-10pm), PLEASE stop by to shmooze and drink wine. If not, come by any time before May 8th to see the exhibit.
If you are in NYC, check out Queerotica Editor/Contributor Sasha Steinberg’s exhibit of queer comics art. Sasha is best known for the glamorous, dark, and fully-researched STONEWALL series, and for his drag queen alter-ego “Sasha Velour” who can be spotted around the alleys of Brooklyn and in the pages of QU33R. Support queer comics! Meet fellow artists and fans! and buy QUEEROTICA!!
The opening is TONIGHT in NYC! I just had the pleasure of seeing Sasha’s originals up close and in person, and lemme tell ya, you are in for a serious treat. Sasha is a Quortzian Chameleon!

Here is the little zine I made for SPX, a followup to the one I made for SFZF. There are slightly fewer pages in this one. The drawings are a bit better.
SPX was really fun, and I was happy to meet so many new & old friends.
Thanks to everyone on twitter who volunteered their selfies for the last double spread.
I love these.

Black literature is taught as sociology, as tolerance, not as a serious, rigorous art form.
The Seawitch is now for sale! I completed The Seawitch last year as part of my thesis for the Center for Cartoon Studies. It’s a story that all started with a dream and I’m so happy to be able to share it now.
Check out this beautiful book by Laurel Holden! Definitely worth a read, and then a slower read, and another …
SO pumped to get my hands on this!

Most people look at the word “disabled” and assume it means “less able.” It doesn’t. It means “prevented from functioning.” When I turn the wireless connection off on my computer, I get told that the connection has been “disabled.” Does this mean that my wifi has suddenly become less able or broken? Has my wifi acquired a disability? Of course not. It has been prevented from functioning by an external force. In a very similar way to how I’m disabled by bus drivers that just won’t stop if they see me — a wheelchair user — waiting at the bus stop.
