Hey, I made a new minicomic—supposedly the first in a series. It has big pages, color, expensiveness, humor, fear, fantasy, realism, dreams, health care, and all kinds of stuff.

You can find out more about it here.

Seattle conference

After not having done any conventions for a couple years, I’m going to a thing: the annual Comics & Medicine Conference is happening at the Seattle Public Library, June 15-17. This is mostly an academic crowd with an educational and therapeutic focus, but they like fiction and humor and whatever too, and I have an affinity for this kind of stuff even though my own health-care career is a thing of the past now. Thanks to Thi Bui for telling me about this group.

I’ll be there mostly to learn about other people’s work, but I’ll also be doing a 5-minute presentation in one of their “lightning talk” sessions about a nursing-related story I’ve been working on. And I’ll be sitting at a little table at their brief book-selling event—with luck, premiering a new minicomic; more about that soon.
