Those of you who follow me on Twitter may have noticed a series of tweets documenting my recent journey across the country as I relocated from Savannah, GA to Portland, OR. Having recently graduated from SCAD, I accepted an internship at Periscope Studio for the fall. My esteemed colleague Max Young was also offered an internship there, and together we packed up all our things, put our four cats into the backseat of my Honda Accord and drove 3,025.2 miles across the country to our new home.
Surprisingly, we managed to make the journey in one piece, without losing anyone to dysentery or cholera or even scurvy, despite subsisting on a diet comprised almost exclusively of drive-thru fast food and redbull. The truck with our things has yet to arrive, however, and so for the moment I’m stuck in an empty apartment without my drafting table or most of my art supplies. As soon as the truck arrives, I’ll be back at work on my current project, a story about the Dyatlov Pass Incident to be published in the upcoming Hic & Hoc Unsolved Mysteries anthology that I’m editing.
For the moment I have pretty limited internet access, but I’ll still be checking my email at least once a day to respond to any inquiries regarding the anthology. The deadline for submissions is approaching fast! So get to work and send me some stories before September 15th. I’ll also be putting up some preview pages of the anthology in the upcoming weeks and perhaps even some of my own comics, so keep your eyes peeled for that. Finally, if you live in Portland and have any Portland advice (neat things to check out, etc.) please let me know! I’m generally unfamiliar with Portland and any tips would be much appreciated.
