A huge portion of my writing process doesn’t happen on the comics page, and all that stuff I do in Scrivener.
Every year, the Maison des Auteurs, where I’m in residence, holds a group exhibition of all the artists who have been in residence that year during the Festival International de la Bande Dessinée à Angoulême (aka FIBD). The opening is the traditional first fun event of the festival, on Thursday night. I’ve got three original […]
Learn to write comics directly in page layouts without (necessarily) drawing. Stay attuned to the visual: draft comics in words and design simultaneously.
The Festival International de la Bande Dessinée (FIBD) is breathing hard down our necks—the whole town is being transformed day by day into the banner-strewn tent city I remember from my previous visits. Matt and I have been put to work by many different comics-related institutions in town, and we’ve got a full plate. Here’s what we have […]
The Maison des Auteurs is putting on an exhibition for FIBD, and I’ve got just a few pieces in this show. It’ll be the first time finished Trish Trash pages are seen by the world.

Matt and I will have a table (B3) and are running a workshop/discussion on Saturday at 1:15. Come see us! I’ll have printouts from my new scifi epic Trish Trash: Rollergirl of Mars to show off, new postcards from my Kickstarter, and lots of books for sale.
Matt and I, and our kids, Aldara and Jasper, are picking up and moving to France in September, for a year. In some ways, the difficulty of shifting a fully adult life under full steam to a new track adds to the thrill.
