Women's Review of Books

I'm really proud of this full-page comic I drew for "Women's Review of Books"! 

Pecha Kucha: Comics! NORTHWEST ROOTS

I was honored to be amongst this awesome group of cartoonists who performed at 
Pecha Kucha last month. 

My piece was entitled, "Ideal Pants" and it was a funny survey of problems and 
potential solutions for women's pants.

Nasty Day and My Body Is A Lemon

A nice review from Rob Kirby! 

My Body is a Lemon & Nasty Day by Kelly Froh
These two titles from Froh showcase her winningly straightforward, merciless narrative voice. Lemon is a sometimes darkly humorous rundown of the various maladies Froh has suffered over her adult life, while Nasty Day is an exposé of sorts, examining in close detail the warped lives of her notoriously cheap grandparents (on her mother's side) and the fallout from a dark family secret brought to light. Froh always makes reading about the fraught, scary things in life a genuine, pocket-sized pleasure. 

Another review here by John Seven!

DIY Holiday Fair

Come visit Max and I next Saturday for mini-comics, zines, posters, tapes, Intruder comics newspapers, Short Run anthologies, and more! 

John Porcellino at Short Run

It was a great pleasure to host John Porcellino at Short Run this year - a long-time pen pal and friend of mine, and personal hero.  He inspired so many other exhibitors in the room that day to make their first mini-comic or zine.

The day after the festival, he showed "Root Hog or Die" at Central Cinema and a bunch of us hardcore fans were there.

International artists at Short Run 2014

Anna Sailamaa from Finland displays one of her beautiful fold-out books
at her table at Short Run. She sold out of all her books before the day was over.
Jamie Coe from the UK shows his graphic novel, "Art Schooled", published by Nobrow.
His book is getting lots of good reviews.
Jean De Wet from South Africa also sold out of his table full of mini-comics. 

Jean and James Stanton made this amazing mural in less than 3 days.
It is located at 22nd & Union on the side of Cappy's Gym. 
This was our first year featuring International artists and we could not have dreamed of a better trio. Anna, Jamie, and Jean were delightful, fun, enthusiastic and super hard working.
