Here’s another snippet from Dreaming— along with a bit of wonderful news: Cartozia’s Kickstarter was a great success– even exceeded the goal! I’m so glad to know that this inventive comic will be able to wander onward in its wonderfully curious way– many thanks to all of you who helped spread the word!
Yet another detail from Dreaming. The entire painting is 30″ x 24″; this part is about 6″ x 3″. You can see more tidbits from the painting here. I’ll be putting prints of the whole thing up in my Etsy shop soon. :-)
In case you were wondering, SPX was fantastic. It was my first con & I had no idea what a tumult of sensory overload it would be! So many amazing people, such a high concentration of creativity! It was a little dizzy-making at times, but a great experience overall. I’d definitely recommend a visit if you ever have the chance.
I’ve been coming up with a bundle of new stuff to share at SPX. If you’re coming please be sure to stop by my table! (I’ll be at D8-9a with Isaac Cates & Sam Wolk.) Please drop by early so you can grab the Curiotype initial of your choice!
Oh p.s. you will be able to spot me by my hat. C|:-)
These lovely smiling people are the brilliant creators behind Cartozia Tales, holding their copies of Issue #1!* You can meet all of them & hear their voices in the Cartozia Kickstarter Video, & learn more about the comic on the Cartozia Website.
*Yes, I did the cover! You can see a close-up detail here.

I’m excited to be a part of this inventive new comic! Conceived by Isaac Cates, it is co-created by a team of writers and artists who take turns telling fantastic stories about various sectors of an imaginary world, Cartozia. It’s really a fascinating system– read more about it here.
The first issue should be coming out in August, & can be pre-ordered now.
