One of the most rewarding things about doing the reprint of The Lake Erie Monster #1 was being able to run an ad for Tell Me Something I Don’t Know, the incredible podcast over at boingboing.net by Jim Rugg, Jasen Lex, and sometimes Ed Piskor. They interview really interesting artists, illustrators, designers, and forward thinkers of the comics/publishing industry and beyond.
Copies of The Lake Erie Monster #1 will be available locally, in Cleveland, next week. It’s already available online over at thelakeeriemonster.com!
"White inside the ham bone, always."
We got a behind-the-scenes tour of the Dr. Seuss collection at UC San Diego. This is a color guide for Green Eggs and Ham. Dr. Seuss (whose real name was Ted Geisel) would commonly write notes in the margin to indicate how he would like his illustrations to print.

lil messy bus comics i drew on my way home from chicago zine fest :)
The cover I drew for Scene Magazine’s second annual “Comics Issue”, back in January. Here’s the link to the section on their website. Though, there’s no credits or links to the artists, here they are in order: Brandon B., myself, Jake Kelly, Jessi Zabarsky, Liz Velasco, MJ Robinson, and Nate Ward.
I’m really proud of this issue. I’m going to post my page from it next. I’m happy with how this all turned out.
I would have posted this sooner, but I’ve spent the last couple months fighting devil dogs, and winter demons. Mostly devil dogs. I think I’m almost done with those for a while though, so expect more art posts. I’ve done a bunch of work that I haven’t posted yet.
Soooooo I went and made one of those Patreon pages. It’s an experiment! If you enjoy The Secret Voice, check it out and maybe think about signing up.
Gary Groth @ PIX 2014Founder and Publisher of Fantagraphics Books, widely considered the most important publisher of independent, creator-owned comics in North America, Gary Groth, together with the late Kim Thompson, helped create and nurture the independent comics scene that emerged in the mid-1980’s and is thriving today. As Mark Frauenfelder said on BoingBoing.com “His influence on the state of the contemporary American comics industry and on the art-form itself is difficult to overstate.” Fantagraphics introduced many readers to the Hernandez Bros.’ Love and Rockets, Dan Clowes’ Eightball, Chris Ware’s early Acme Novelty Library and Charles Burns’ Black Hole series. They have also published beautifully designed collections from iconic cartoonists such as Charles Schulz (Peanuts), George Herriman (Krazy Kat), Carl Barks (Donald Duck) and Robert Crumb.Gary was also the founder and original editor of The Comics Journal, the publication that introduced serious criticism and analysis to the American comics industry.Gary’s appearance at PIX is underwritten by ToonSeum Executive Director, Joe Wos. Gary will be interviewed by Pittsburgh Post-Gazette columnist, Tony Norman as part of PIX’s slate of evening programming, followed by a question and answer session.PIX 2014
