I have nailed down TWO predictable comic convention appearances for myself for 2023. I am probably doing FIVE OR FEWER of them this year. On March 2-5, I’ll be in Seattle for EMERALD CITY COMIC CON. I’m on the MAIN FLOOR, not artist alley. On April 1-2, I’ll be in Manhattan New York City for the MUSEUM OF COMIC AND CARTOON ART ARTS FESTIVAL. Ok?? OK!

Tēnā koe e Evan, In your prior comics I have often felt alongside the characters, not necessarily privy to their inner monologues but the next best thing. In 3rd Voice however I feel like an outside observer, not always able to read the motives or moods of the main characters. I get the impression that this same disconnect happens between the main characters at times too. It’s really cool. Has anyone else mentioned this? Is this intentional?

Interesting; I don’t know how much I can understand this exactly but certainly I’m writing this one differently. Characters are I think somewhat more modernist and Psychological than in previous comics, where they’ve often been broad epic-poem or fairy-tale sorts of characters. Also I’m definitely playing up the sense of disorientation that can be built into secondary-world fiction; I think there is a lot of possible utility and interest to that. I don’t know really but I’m trying to take character seriously more than I have in the past and they feel more psychologically real to me than I’m used to; maybe that’s something.
ECCC in Seattle, March 2-5. Tabling at "Cautionary Fables" table on the main floor
