I'm back


I've returned from Louisville! Derby City Comic Con was great! My friend Laura (see ad to the right) is so inspiring! Exclamation point!

Okay world, you ready for me to roar through three zines, setting up a pop up shop, helping Neighbor Jenny with her quilt and making some sort of bow-involved birthday present for a friend plus working a whopping three days a week?!

Yeah, I know, I'm not sure either. But let's see how far I get.

The drawing above is of Carla, from the story that I was gonna call Just Sayin' but now I have to think of another name. I drew it on the plane! And I managed not to get any india ink on my fellow passengers.

Derby City Comic Con time!

I have some news! But first, a painting of our cats as their spirit animals:


News item #1:
I will be in Louisville, tabling for Sparkplug Comic Books at Derby City Comic Con. Please stop by! I will have my own zines there as well.

News item #2:
I am going to try to have 3 zines done by Portland Zine Symposium next month! I think I can do it.

News item #3:
Well this is old news actually. I am broke! I've been applying for every job I can find for about a month, with no luck so far. If you have any advice, I would love to hear it. I hate asking for money, but if you would like to help, please consider purchasing things from me! 15% off at check out with the coupon code VAISBROKE. Thanks y'all.

News item #4:
A couple things I have enjoyed recently:

Ignition Zero
My friend Yumi
Anne Emond's tumblr
I sort of can't get over how awesome Mel Stringer is. I wish she lived in Portland instead of Australia.
My acquaintance Kjerstin's tumblr. She makes good rage comics.

That's all! <3 Bye now!

Boom Boom Drama


Oh hello there. Yes, it's been forever since I posted. But I have been doing things! Comic things even. Here is the first page of a comic I did for my friends Gingham Ghost. If you want to read the rest*, you'll just have to subscribe to their e-zine, which you should do anyway, because Melinda and Aaron are amazzzzzing.

I've got large-ish projects going on for the next couple months, so I dunno how much I'll be updating. I have plans for new zines, and many more sewing things. If you really miss me, I post on my tumblr slightly more often, but not always comics. Yes, I know. I miss you too.

If you feel like helping me postpone getting a third job, consider purchasing some of my handmade things. If you think etsy sucks, send me an email and we'll work something out. I trade too! I could use some soap and chapstick, if anyone makes those.

I will be in Louisville for Derby City ComicCon! See y'all there.

*For now.
