New Comic Up!

Hey Everyone!

Just a short note to let you know that there's a NEW COMIC up on my site:

http://www.redinkradio.com/p/blog-page_16.html

It's a 2-pager I was asked to do for the premier issue of The Pitchfork Review, the print offshoot of popular hipster digital rag Pitchfork.com.

So, go read it!  Also, I will be in Pittsburgh next weekend at the Pittsburgh Indy Comix Expo!  Come by and hang out with me.

Hugs,
Sophie

2014: Work Smarter Not Harder

Hey Guys,

It's been a busy time.  I've decided 2014 is going to be the "Work Smarter Not Harder" year and with that in mind I've been spending a lot of time organizing and figuring out the most productive and least stressful way to be an artist.  I'm happy to say that less then one month in, I've got the problem licked! NO MORE STRESS!  NO MORE MISSED DEADLINES!  FLY MY PRETTIES, FLY!

I kid, of course.  I'm a total mess.  Why did I decide to do this comics thing anyway?


Oh, right.  Fucking space hippies.  That's why.

This is a page from the first installment of the 76 page (!!!) story I'm doing for Maple Key, a sweet-ass 300+ page comics anthology being put together by my good friend and CCS classmate Joyana McDiarmid.  She's a peach.

If you want some comicky goodness then I recommend checking out the kickstarter for the project here:

Darwin Carmichael is Going to Hell: The Book: The Kickstarter!

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1798486524/darwin-carmichael-is-going-to-hell-the-book

Dear friends and readers, I am proud to announce the launch of the Kickstarter campaign for the print edition of my webcomic Darwin Carmichael is Going to Hell:


Darwin Carmichael is Going to Hell (dcisgoingtohell.com) is set in a world where mythical beings not only roam the earth, but also camp out on your sofa and raid your refrigerator.  In 21st-century Brooklyn, karma can be tracked like a credit score, and our protagonist Darwin Carmichael has a big problem.  Due to an unfortunate incident involving some intense snogging, an unbalanced high chair, and a framed image of the Buddha, he acquired a massive karmic deficit. Long story short, he’s going to go to hell...and he should probably do something about that.  

My writing partner, Jenn Jordan, and I began publishing our comic in January 2009, and we just finished it this past summer.  The print edition of the comic will include the complete, 360-strip saga of Darwin Carmichael is Going to Hell in beautiful, full color, and will feature behind-the-scenes commentary as well as concept art and a few other goodies.  

Our goal is to raise $12,000 to fund our print run by December 11th.  Please consider contributing!

It's Here!


I am proud to be included in this year's edition of Best American Comics.  In addition to the normal level of head-inflating pride I feel, I am doubly flabbergasted to have been chosen by this year's editor, Jeff Smith, whose work has meant so much to me.

Congrats are also due to some of my friends who made the cut, my CCS thesis adviser Eleanor Davis and fellow CCS grad Joe Lambert.  Also a warm slap on the back to Jon Chad, Chuck Forsman, Luke Howard, Jason Lutes, Dakota McFadzean, Laura Terry and Andy Warner, who all got big shout-outs in the "Notable Comics" section.
