2012 Calendar and a new comic compilation:

Just a little preview...

After months of work, both the 2012 Paquita Calendar and FUTURE TENSE, a comic compilation featuring eleven different artist, are DONE. Woo-woo! You can click on the links above, or can find them at my Etsy shop:

FUTURE TENSE features the amazing work of: 
Edie Fake, Jo Dery, Mike Taylor, Roby Newton, Sy Wagon, Anna Haifisch, James Turek, Al Burian, Josh Bayer, Kasey Henneman and uh, myself. 

It's 48 pages of content (52 total), all printed here at the house on my trusty old Risograph- using burgundy, blue and red ink. Everyone in this compilation is super rad, talented and on point! I encourage you to seek out their other various projects if you're not already familiar with their bad-ass-ery.

It's been crazy whirlwind lately, but a super huge thanks must be extended to everyone who came out to the events at Modern Times (Minneapolis), Quimby's (Chicago) and then the City Reliquary (BROOKLYN!) this past week. It was great to make new friends and reconnect with old pals as well. 
To sound like a total granny, it's been warming my heart these days to know that there are still so many folks making comics/zines, drawing with pens (not on the computer), creating objects with their own hands, and who still find pleasure to real-life printed material. It seems as if there's  a printing renaissance happening these days and it's nice to have a big stack of new things to read next to the bed. I'm hoping that this is a sign that either people don't care about the Internet as much anymore, or never did to begin with. Nonetheless, here's to new projects and 2012!
