Shaenon Garrity and I have finished "Li'l Mell & Sergio: Adjustment" over at girlamatic.com! Thanks to Shaenon for providing such a fun story to draw.

I recently recited an original short story for Litquake, San Francisco's really great annual literary festival. The reading went pretty well. I was a little nervous since I've never performed a story before, but the instant gratification of laughter and applause was really great. It was also nice to seize control of the pacing of the story, since that can be very tricky to maintain on paper. I hope I get a chance to do this again sometime.
Images for the story were projected behind me on stage; here are a few:

I adapted William Shakespeare's Hamlet into a graphic novel last year, and now it's available. You can find preview images, information on how to get the book, and an explanation of how it was created, right here.

For several years, I've been trying to persuade friends who care about movies to watch Carl Th. Dreyer's Ordet, surely one of my top-5 favorites. However, I've also had to warn them to be careful to read nothing online about it, which doesn't help the case to check out an obscure foreign film from 1954.

A new page of "Li'l Mell and Sergio" is up on Girlamatic.com today, as normally scheduled. It was fun to play with lighting in a dark environment here within a straight black-and-white comic. I hope my skills are improving with this style.

I'm finally dusting off this website again. The design isn't finished, but I'll be blogging anyway. Cheers.

This website might not be functional this weekend because the server is moving (along with my friend Matt) from Pittsburgh to San Francisco.
And I'll be back with a meaningful upgrade in early October!
