Thought I would post about recent art-related updates to my life.
First of all, I'm going to the San Diego Comicon in July! I look forward to it with excitement and terror. It'll only be my second convention, and the previous on was a tiny convention in Toronto, so ... I hope I won't get trampled on. I'm sure I'll be doing some signings at the SLG Publishing booth, so if you're going, drop me a line. I'll post more info when it gets closer to the con.
Second, I won a Joe Shuster Award! It's tremendously exciting to be honoured, and to be considered a peer amongst my fellow Canadian cartoonists. Winning the award was hugely shocking (and very unexpected), but hugely welcomed, too. It's wonderful to receive such validation.
I'm hard at work on my second graphic novel for SLG Publishing, The War at Ellsmere. We'll be handing out preview ashcans for it at San Diego, so be sure to drop by the SLG booth and grab one. The book is about a poor-but-smart girl who wins a scholarship to a prestigious boarding school and the intrigue, friendships and danger she experiences there.
I have tons of other stuff going on too, stuff I can't talk about yet. It's terrifying and exciting, and all I can think to do is work as hard as I can, and try and build my reputation as a comic artist. Honestly, I never thought this would happen, and now that is is... it's scary! Wonderful and exciting, but scary!
