If you're gonna be at Emerald City Comic-Con this weekend, come by and see me! I'll be at table CC-09 in the artist's alley, at the back of the second hall. Thanks to me being slow this winter, I won't have any copies of Rita book 2, but I'll have some book 1 on hand if you still don't have that! Plus prints, plus just stopping by and saying "hey I like your stuff".

The Decrypting Rita volume 2 Kickstarter is open!

The Decrypting Rita volume 2 Kickstarter is open!

Check it out, and don't forget to spread the word! 120 pages of cool sci-fi comics.

Would you like to know how I do my crazy thing in Illustrator? Here's a video of me drawing some stuff, and talking about what I'm doing. I use the same basic methods when I'm doing full-color work; this is part of the comic, so it's working under the usual heavy restrictions of no gradients/blurs/complex palettes/etc.
