New Lil Mell!

Okay, okay, it's just a filler this week while Neil and I recover from the Stumptown Comics Fest. Enjoy a sampling of my thumbnail art.

And it wouldn't be Wednesday without a new installment in The Chronicles of William Bazillion!

Speaking of Stumptown, the brand-new Skin Horse minicomic won a Stumptown Trophy Award for Outstanding Small Press! How sweet is that?

I was at the party where the awards were announced, but everyone was rocking so hard that I didn't hear it announced. I only found out that I'd won something when I went into the convention hall the next morning and my trophy was waiting for me at the table. As you can see, I was gobsmacked.

The trophies themselves are the tackiest secondhand trophies the good people at Stumptown could find in the greater Portland area. And ours is the best one! Bask in the glory:

Here are Jeffrey's and my initials crudely scrawled into the trophy plate by Shannon Wheeler:

And the crowning glory:


I can only hope Jeffrey is as proud as I am. Thank you, Stumptown! Oh, and if you'd like to purchase a copy of this award-winning minicomic for your own, we can make that happen.

I had a great time at Stumptown, by the way. Andrew's got a great writeup here, although he mostly talks about things he ate.
