Hello, hello! SPACE I deem to have gone well, and if you missed it, you can read the free comic I was giving away, Tapiridae Dreams, online!

With the completion of the Extras page, the new Tile website is officially complete. See there the images which won the 2006 Miss Comicgenesis pageant, a short comic about Cappuccino, as well as fanart from years previous. I have also hidden on the website secret background info on some of the comics!

My next convention appearance will be at Oddmall on May 10!

Plesiosaurs and Pie, the new Tile book, is now available!

In Plesiosaurs and Pie, Tile goes back in time and meets the notorious plesiosaur, City, and we learn the story surrounding that encounter.

Saturday at Indie Comics Fair also happened to be minicomics day, where you are encouraged to completely draw and reproduce a short minicomic during the day. I did one entitled Origin of a Hat, featuring none other than our own bowler-sporting specter. So that will be made available at some point as well.

In other news I will soon begin work on a new comic about letters, as well as a new free comic to give away at SPACE next month.

I will be at Indie Comics Fair on March 8, at the Ace of Cups in Columbus, OH. I will have some space at the Sunday Comix table, and will be there with my comics for sale, including the brand new comic, Wh-ZAH! And maybe, just maybe, Plesiosaurs and Pie will debut as well!

Official archive of the Tile webcomic run now online!

Watch here for news on upcoming Tile books and convention appearances. I am working on spiffing up the site even more, to include extras and easter eggs.

I have most recently completed the spin-off comic, Wh-ZAH! featuring two of the ninja background characters (the same ones who found Mr. Mapleleaf). A spin-off comic featuring Cappuccino is also under production, and I have a script completed for the next Tile book, Plesiosaurs and Pie, to be released later this year.

So yes, while the webcomic itself has ended, Tile lives on in print. Very exciting.
