I have an amazing friend named Glade.
Paper Party sells the cutest gifts, stationary, and party supplies in Austin. You need to check out her store if you haven’t been!
My show “Nature Club” is hanging there from now until October 18th! It’s my first solo show, and I was so happy to paint my heart out this past few months. You can see all my paintings and a price list here. Most of these paintings are much bigger than anything i’ve done before, so there’s lots of little details that I had fun with! Check them out!
The opening for the show was last weekend. I had such a great time…here are some pics I snapped!
Yes, it’s true. We’re gettin’ out of Austin, and our next home will be in LA. We’re actually moving in 2 weeks, which is pretty stressful, but I think it’ll be great.
That said, anyone with any LA advice? Places to live, work, eat, shop? I’ll be looking for a waitressing job to start with, but my dream day job is to work on storyboarding for an animated show…so if anyone knows of any leads, hit me up: firstname.lastname@example.org!
Soooo…as some of you may have noticed, it’s been forever since I posted here. I have been busy, busy, busy the last couple of months, and unfortunately my diary comics have been something that I haven’t had time for recently.
I will start posting them again soon, I promise!
For those of you who don’t know, I’ve been busy at work putting out my first full color, subscription based quarterly comic “The Melinderly”!
It was funded through Kickstarter, and it is my most rewarding project to date! Most of the comics are autobiographical, but i’m branching into some fiction too…and none of them will be posted online, so your only opportunity to see these will be to buy a subscription of “The Melinderly”. A subscription costs only $40 for 4 issues (a full year) of “The Melinderly”, which you can buy HERE! I think those of you who enjoy seeing my comics on this site will love being able to actually hold them in your hands even more!
Here are a couple preview pages (pardon the crappy pics):
I’ll be in Portland, OR for the STUMPTOWN COMIC FEST this weekend with Aaron Whitaker. We’d love for you to come say hi.
We’ll have copies of:
- The Melinderly #1 (brand new!)
- The City Troll (brand new!)
- AOA #1
- Awkward Quarterly #2 (brand new!)
- Awkward Quarterly #1
- Future Ghost
Hey y’all! I am super proud and excited to announce that the release party for ‘The Melinderly’ is tomorrow night, Wednesday April 25th at Domy books!!! I am joining forces with the extremely talented and wonderful William Cardini (one of my favorite Austinites) to simultaneously present our new comics together at a fun party! Cardini is debuting his new comic Vortex #2, an amazing sci-fi comic. We’ll be doing an awesome comics reading with visuals, and FREE BEER! Oh yeah!!! So if anyone lives in Austin, loves comics and wants to have fun on a Wednesday, please come and check it out!
p.s. also, if you want to pick up your copy of ‘The Melinderly #1′ hot off the presses tomorrow night, you TOTALLY SHOULD!
p.p.s. and ALSO, we got this nice little write up on austin.culturemap.com!
Wednesday, April 25th
I am super notorious for not being good about communication. I hardly answer my phone, I don’t text much, and i’m pretty bad about replying to emails promptly. My friends and family find it completely annoying, which it is. This is something I am trying to work on, all around.
So on this note, I want to apologize to everyone and anyone who has ever emailed me/commented with a question/whatever else that I didn’t reply to. It is inexcusable, I know, and I really apologize.
If you HAVE asked a question, or emailed me without a response, know that as of right now, I will be responding to any and all emails/comments that elicit response, so if you want to shoot it over to me again, I will give it the attention it deserves.
That’s all…Thanks everyone for being so supportive, and again, i’m sorry to have been silent for so long.
To all my lady followers: (and guys too, if you’re interested!) I know I’m pretty late getting on the bandwagon, but I finally signed up for Pinterest…I like it kinda too much right now (when I should be spending time being productive), but oh well! If you wanna follow me, my username is Melindo, or just search for Melinda Boyce.
p.s. Aaron said that they should start a pinterest for guys, and call it peen-terest. HA!
