I'm very excited to announce that I will be a guest next weekend at the Rendez-Vous de la Bande Dessinée in Amiens, France (about 30 minutes north of Paris). I believe the festival is free to attend, and there are 95 invited authors (a festival record), including...
Nicolas Hitori de
(See the full list here: http://bd.amiens.com/festival/rendez-vous-bd-2014/)

France friends: I have my first ever dedicace in France next weekend! I'm a guest at the Bulles de Neige show in Valberg February 8+9. Here is a link to more info: http://www.bullesdeneige.com/
I will have copies of my new book, A BOY AND A GIRL, from Oni Press and I can take commissions as well. Hope to see you there! :D
My studio is running a Kickstarter campaign to raise money for a series of art books. I REALLY want an art book collecting my work, so please visit and consider donating!! There are TWO CHANCES LEFT to pledge at the 'Natalie Nourigat' level and choose a movie for me to review! :D
And did you know that you can pledge at the 'Ben Dewey' level and be drawn into Tragedy Series?! Holy cow I want that!!
I can't wait to go down to San Diego for Comic-Con later this week! Here's info in case you're interested in seeing me:
San Diego Comic-Con
SAN DIEGO, CA
I am not tabling at SDCC, but I will be on 2 panels!
1) The Oni Press RevolutiONIze Comics Panel – Friday, July 19 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM in room 32AB
2) You've Broken into Comics, Now What? How to be a Pro – Saturday July 20 10:00 AM – 11:00 AM in room 28DE
BONUS: If you recognize me walking around the show, flag me down and say "GIMME DAT SWAG" and I'll give you a prize in the form of a minicomic, quick sketch, or comics.
I am now open to take con sketches for Emerald City Comicon! That means if you are attending the show and you want me to draw something for you, you can request it now to make sure that you get on my list before I run out of slots (which doesn't always happen, but can, so if you're dead set on getting something, send it to me early!). I don't take commissions outside of conventions anymore, so be aware that this is one of the few ways to get custom artwork from me.
What I need from you is an email (to Tally@farbeyond.com) with your NAME, which days you will be at ECCC, which CHARACTER you want, and whether you want BLACK AND WHITE or COLOR
I am pleased to announce that a bunch of comics I worked on are coming out in the next few months! Check 'em out!
1. A Boy and a Girl http://confessions123.blogspot.com/2012/10/in-future-world-with-astrogirl.html This is a big one for me, because it is my first book with Oni Press, it took me all of 2011 to draw, and I was working with prolific writer Jamie S. Rich. Plus, it ties into a BIG new site overhaul for Oni Press. You'll be able to read this book for free in January when they start uploading chapters to their website!
2. A story in the Husbands: the Comic trade http:/
Image Comics will publish Between Gears as a trade paperback on February 22!!
Check out the Previews feature online here:
I am very, very excited. This is my first graphic novel, and to have it published by Image is an honor.
