Comes with a custom doodle

Heeby Jeeby Comix issue 1 is now available in my shop, and each copy comes with a custom doodle of your choosing. Maybe you'd like a sparrow riding a rocking-giraffe?

Or a frog who can't quite figure out how to eat spaghetti?

Or, you know, whatever.

MICE was Nice

Yes, I had a great time at MICE this past weekend, talking to everyone, doodling, and selling comics. A big Thank You to Bob for getting us the table and for making it look so good with a perfectly Heeby-Jeeby-green table cloth (wish I had a photo)! And thanks to everyone who came by!

This is another microcomic I made to sell at MICE:

I didn't realize until the day after MICE that I made a big mistake on the spread below. Can you tell what's wrong?

That's right! The little cowboy obviously should've been a mouse!

I fixed it for future editions. Now there's at least one mouse on every spread. If you bought this at MICE, email me your address and I'll send you a corrected version!

Here are a couple more sample spreads:

You Stupid Dragon!

It starts off as one big piece of paper:
. . . and turns into a 16-page microcomic!

But how? Find out at MICE this Saturday!

Billy Gets Bumped

New comic up at Heeby Jeeby Comix!

Last week, I read Bill Peet's excellent illustrated autobiography. At the end of the book, he brings up the idea that everything an author writes has some piece of autobiography in it. He talks about his book Chester the Worldly Pig, and how his own life is reflected in Chester's adventures.

I often notice bits of my own life in my comics, but not until after I draw them! Take, for example, the following panel from this week's Heeby Jeeby comic:

Just replace "spinning a frisbee on your finger" with "drawing a comic about a kid spinning a frisbee on his finger." That's always the conflict: pursuing creative goals vs. living life!
