poster for an upcoming brunch at Constantine!
big thanks to Lindsey!
i was commissioned to make a flyer for NYC Inferno's upcoming party, The Nude Mutants! an unofficial after party to this month's Flame Con. thanks to Adam!
i had the opportunity to review Vag Halen's Heavy Leather Parking Lot concert for NOW Magazien! check it out online here, and IRL in the latest issue of NOW. thanks to Richard Trapunski for his editing wizardry!
thought i'd share one of the opening pages of Our Wretched Town Hall, my new short story collection out later this year with Retrofit. this sequence pays loving homage to the film adaptation of Bob Fosse's Sweet Charity; the costume designs of Leigh Bowery; and Slava Tsukerman's cult classic Liquid Sky.
Retrofit's Kickstarter is closing in on its final day. i'm really honoured to be on this lineup with such a diverse crew of books, and cartoonists. if you're so inclined, check it out and consider helping out (and by doing so, you'll actually get one, some, or all of the books, basically a pre-order type thing!)
check out the campaign here! thanks so much to everyone who's already contributed.
Condo Heartbreak Disco is up for the Doug Wright Spotlight Award, "given to a Canadian cartoonist deserving of wider recognition." The awards will be given out next month at the Toronto Comic Arts Festival.
Check out the rest of the nominees here!
the third installment of the Twink Rage Revue is up now on OMG Blog!
this one's an autobio comic, about traveling on the 1-year anniversary of the American election. it features a passage from Close To The Knives by David Wojnarowicz, one of my favourite books, and one that has become very timely, despite being published in the early 90s.
check out the whole comic here.
i'm thrilled to be the recipient of the 2018 Queer Press Grant, awarded by Prism Comics!
the grant will be used towards the completion and promotion of my next book, Our Wretched Town Hall, out later this year from Retrofit/Big Planet.
recently made this poster for Silver Venus, a dance production happening next month at Toronto's Dancemakers Centre for Creation. thanks to Amelia and Dancemakers for having me on board!
i had the pleaja of reviewing the first of Above & Beyond's two Toronto concerts, promoting their new album Common Ground. you can have a closer look at the strip on Now Magazine's website. it will also be in their next print issue, available Thursday. thx to Richard Trapunski and Kevin Ritchie for having me do these!
