I’ve Moved (and a new project)!

HELLO (Hello) (hello)…Is there anyone there? Wow. I haven’t posted here in FOREVER. But all of that’s about to change! I’ve been SUPER busy working on Batcave Beach #2 and moving halfway across the country! Yup…Portland to Austin…it happened! Moving to a new city you’ve never even visited is really scary, but exciting. Aaron and I don’t know anyone here, but we moved with 3 of our closest friends…Keaton, Robert and Brittany.

For the first 2 weeks we were here, a LOT of time was spent doing boring things…aka unpacking, buying a fridge, going to ikea etc. It’s not like we didn’t go out and see the city, but i’ll just say we did stay in and indulge in Robert’s brand new 42″ tv a little too much (Hey! Moving is tiring).

Anyways, diary comics are on the way, Batcave Beach #2 is on the way, and I’ve also started a new project! In order to try to experience my new city to the fullest, I’m working on a series called “Falling in Love with Austin”. Every day in March I’m going to draw something new about Austin that I’m experiencing…places, things, etc. I’ll be posting them on here, and on the gingham ghost tumblr as well.

If you happen to live in Austin or know the area, please recommend anywhere I should go or see! I’d love suggestions on things to do here, and it will probably make it into my series…Comment or email me at Cheers y’all!
