Pipedream Comics just posted an interview with me about As the Crow Flies!

The nonbinary comics are real!  Even my cats love them!

If you’re going to SDCC, look for ‘em at the PRISM booth, or track me down in person!  I’ll be speaking on the Transgender Trends in Popular Culture panel Thursday at 5 in room 28DE, and will also be around Friday night for the Eisner ceremony.

A couple panels I like from the minicomic about nonbinary gender I’m working on.  Still on track to hopefully have copies by SDCC!  (And in the meanwhile, all the pages are being posted to my patreon as I finish ‘em — up to 12 now!)

i just want to say that if your identity is influenced by trauma or mental illness or what have you it doesn’t make that identity any less valid or real, it doesn’t mean your identity is ‘wrong’ or has to be ‘fixed’ 
there are definite cases of people whose gender are resultant of traumatic experiences or mental illness or other such situations and those people still deserve to have their genders (or other such identities) respected

Noted!
I tweaked the text in the original post a little bit to (hopefully!) make it clearer that the comic’s meant to be making fun of people who buy into the blanket generalization that all trans people’s genders are sourced to trauma — not replacing that generalization with the equally false one that *no* trans person has ever had a gender sourced to trauma.
Apologies for unclear wording!

I'm crying about your nonbinary gender minicomic. Next time a person asks me why I'm trans queer guy, I'll want to say, "I want to ruin bush-loving white men's right activist cishet guys' doctoral thesis."

This pleases me.

A sketch I did of one of the statues at the Mayan exhibit at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science today.  I’d had grand plans to draw my way through the entire exhibit, but turns out there’s so much cool stuff to look at in there, even the 2.5 hours I had wasn’t enough time to see it all AND draw more than one thing!  In any case — HIGHLY recommended, Denver folks.  Go see it before it leaves in August!

Will your self-discovery comic be available anywhere other than SDCC?

I’m definitely going to SPX and MICE this year, so they’ll be available there! Might end up putting a few copies up on Gumroad too (print run size depending), if any non-con-going folks are interested.

Hey everybody!  If ATCF updates are a little sparse between now and SDCC, just wanted you all to know, you can blame this little comic: I’m working on a new minicomic about the process of coming out and living life as nonbinary.
My goal is to have copies ready to go by SDCC (not like it’s just a FEW WEEKS AWAY or anything, HA) — but if you’re following the ATCF Patreon, I’ll be posting pages to the backer blog as I finish them.  Here’s where you can read along if you’d like!

I was hired recently to draw a comic about a Vermont judicial conspiracy theorist for Seven Days!  Go here if you’d like to read the whole thing: http://www.sevendaysvt.com/vermont/from-courthouse-to-statehouse-mans-divorce-case-leads-to-very-public-protest/Content?oid=2393049 

This comic is part of Seven Days’ annual Cartoon Issue, which is this wonderful thing where most of the newspaper’s content is delivered in comics form, rather than text articles.  It always turns out totally awesome, and I hope other papers try it out sometime!  Go here if you’d like to see the other comics: http://www.sevendaysvt.com/vermont/IssueArchives?issue=2392622
