166: long time coming (& minicomic!)________4 October, 2015

hey, wowzers, it’s been awhile since i’ve updated on here! of course, a lot has been happening … i’m just being awful about keeping up. i’ve moved, grad school, writing, etc. exciting! i’m sure more specifics will burgeon with time, but for now i will continue my course of perpetual brevity & silence and merely forestall you with a comic (click to enlarge):

163: MEAT minicomic, psychopomp competition, liminal________5 May, 2015

hey all,

looks like i’ve been my usual delinquent self in re: updating. it’s hard to keep current, you know? or to keep currant. (they’re very small. “is that a mole, or a raisin? mmm, edible mole.” -bob’s burgers.) yeahhh, so what’s new? read some great books: asterios polyp (terrific art style with a heavy philosophical bent, some might argue too much), for the relief of unbearable urges (great book of honestly-storyish short stories by nathan englander; varying though consistently high levels of jewishness), fourth of july creek (beach book for the intellectually inclined? violence porn for the emotionally dead-inside? a confusing thing?). i’ve only barely started making inroads on my pile of accumulated literature, so don’t look now, i guess. but those are some things.

other things: “MEAT” (the minicomic) is finished and looks like it will have a home in the solar system of literary publications! that’s exciting. it’s looking to be published on june 15, so please check back around then and i’ll have a link up. i’ve also worked on some short stories. i mostly haven’t sent out short stories to places, but i did send “haptics” into psychopomp magazine’s annual competition. and i was a semifinalist! so that’s cool. check out the winning entries on the site, if you like.

now that the thaw has set in a bit, i’ve also started to make small updates to liminal now and again. last week i sojourned out to the garment district and shot a few photos there. you can take a look at those and keep all caught up, if you like. finally, i’m working on an illustration commission for a magazine cover that i hope will see the light of day in july. a little sketch on that below (not going to be used for the final thing). keep your eyes peeled for more on that as well.

hope you guys are keeping well!

162: tumblr, chicken coops, comics________13 February, 2015

i wanted to call this post the GIF that keeps on GIFing, but i’m waiting to upload mah GIF and also trying to keep to more informational post titles lately. what is new? things!

  • i have a tumblr now. go check it out! it’s mostly street photography, something that i anticipate getting back into more after this bitter freaking winter has run its course. it is hard to shoot when the blood in your fingers is frozen solid. you will then be like ACK
  • i was in the NEW YERK TAHMS (a little). mainly aro was in the new york times! for its splendid chicken coop in the hamptons! here we are doing LGBT synagogues, beautiful stadiums, schools, and park facilities and da newz is all like, “hey, i heard you did a chicken coop. tell me about how lucky & spoilt those hens will be in dem cushy hamptons?” and then all the commenters become completely rage-tastic, ejaculating vitriol such as, “hey, that’s not how we gave chickens life supporting shelter and care growing up in the upper west side — i mean maine!”
  • i’m working on a new comic! it’s called MEAT. it was specifically intended for the newly-minted okey panky (zine?), but they abruptly (and prematurely) closed their submissions, so now it will have to find another home (probably). anyway, see title pg + page one embedded below. check back soon for more! till then, be well.
