 Here's a page I did for 'Magic Bullet' #6 right after Sandy Hook. I think it holds up.

The Washington Post has a wonderful article on Art Enables, a fantastic arts center in D.C. 'Wild Ocean' is lucky enough to have an exhibit there right now, so the original art featured in the gallery also got a plug.

Got the "hardware" this weekend at the Small Press and Alternative Comics Expo in Columbus, Ohio, for First Place for Xoc and Second Place for District Comics. Big thanks to all the contributors in the anthology and double kudos to my pal Evan Keeling, who pulled coloring duties on Xoc and for a story in District Comics.

The exhibitors are posted, the programming is set, the blog is rolling with cool cartoons from kids, and now we're finishing up some awesome items for the show, like button pins and T-Shirts! AND following the show there is a showing of 'Dear Mr. Watterson,' a documentary about Calvin & Hobbs (with live music by the band that contributed to the soundtrack!) 
Don't forget: March 8, noon-6 p.m., Artisphere in Rosslyn, Va.! It's a block from Metro's orange line and there is validated parking at the building. Plus the event is FREE!
