Best American Comics '12 & Comics Sketchbook
In this year's Best American Comics (2012) editor Francoise Mouly includes a "Découpage" with panels from various comics creating a backdrop for her dialogue with herself, explaining a little about her selection process for the book. A panel from my comic, ROT*, is included here, and I couldn't be more happy to be among such great company.
*ROT can be read in its entirety HERE. It's was originally my contribution to Root Rot, a forest themed anthology from Koyama Press. Pick up a copy HERE.
I have a few sketchbook pages included in Comics Sketchbooks: The Private World of Today's Most Creative Talents, by Steven Heller. There are also a few sentences about my feelings about sketchbooks and sketching. The whole book is a pretty hefty and handsome collection, full of a wide range of styles and ideas.
