MoCCA 2010,




Just got back from New York. MoCCA was lovely. I almost made back the cost of my table and I met a ton of great people. I tabled next to Zack Braun and the Trees and Hills comics group. Both parties were incredibly nice, shared their easter candy and have some great work you should check out. A fellow named Ken Wong had an amazing Schrodinger's cat comic in the form of a fortune teller. By the time he found me I had already sold out of my Schrodinger comic, but I'm going to send him one in the next few days. Any festival that has room for two Schrodinger comics is awesome in my book. I also met some folks who would have been my classmates at The Center for Cartoon Studies. (I would have started there last fall but was offered a Scholarship at UB at the last minute.) Nomi Kane, Beth Hetland and Paul Swartz all had great work. I met a ton of other people and traded lots. I came back with a huge stack of comics so I will try to post some more pictures and links in the next few days.

If you are just checking out my work for the first time you should become a fan on facebook here. I use the fans page to notify people when new comics are up.

Finally here are some bad pictures of the gussied up version of the Alphabet of Reasoned Failure I made last week for the first year MFA show here at UB, which opens THURSDAY.

The end papers are my favorite.

Hi there,

I just read your Phosphenes comic which I bought at the NYC fest. Great fun, I've always tried to think about how to draw those patterns but could never think of how to accomplish it. For me it's about an impossible range of deep reds and purples and a crazy pulsing flippiness.

Regardless, thanks.

Tim, I'm so glad you liked it. The patterns are pretty hard to pin down. I don't think I represented them perfectly, there are too many colors involved for black and white comics, but they sure are fun to try to draw anyway.

Hi Caitlin,

Thanks for mailing me a copy of "Erwin Schrodinger: Nobel Prize Laureate, Ladies man" (and congrats again for selling out of them at MoCCA Fest).

Schrodinger really was quite an interesting fellow and I thoroughly enjoyed reading your mini. It was nice to hear that you enjoyed my Schrodinger origami comic as well.

I will definitely be back at MoCCA Fest again next year and hope to see you there.
