New site for Cricket Press!

Friday, February 17th, 2006

Finally! After a small headache of switching web hosts, switching emails, and trying to get everything up and running again, we finally have a new site design. Cricket Press HQ was long overdue for one, and hopefully this gives folks better insight into the kinds of stuff we do around here. Have a look around

Upcoming Events

Wednesday, February 15th, 2006

Our first public talk/lecture thingy…
Brian and I just finished a talk at the University of Kentucky a couple of weeks ago. It was an hour talk about how we do what we do, given during an Arts Professions class. Both Brian and I took that course while we were students at UK…and it’s basically to show kids how to make a living off of their art.


Flatstock 8 (March 16-18)
We will have a booth at the gigposter convention Flatstock again this year.  The event is in Austin Texas held in the Austin Convention Center during the SXSW music festival. This will be our fourth time participating in the event…and we always have a great time…and we’ll have lots of new posters for sale. If you live in Austin or are going to attend SXSW…stop by and search for us!

Women Writers Conference Quarum (April 22)
We’re fortunate enough to do alot of the promotions for this conference, but this year I was asked to be a panelist during an event, a graphic novel quorum. I, along with 3 other talented women, will be sitting around and blabbing about the comic medium and our books. The conference is held in Lexington KY and will take place at Art’s Place downtown. It should be fun!

Purdue University Lecture (April 29-30th)
Make Like a Tree Comics, me and my comics partner Jerzy Drozd, have been asked to present a lecture and workshop at Purdue. We’re pretty jazzed about being asked and it should be a good time…you know teaching kids the benefits of comics. The talk will be on the 29th with the workshop following on the 30th.

Heroes Con (June 28-30th)
Again, Make Like a Tree Comics will have a booth during this summer’s Heroes Comic Convention. I’ll have more details on this when i have them. I just know we’re going to have quite a line-up of books available! The Convention is in Charlotte, North Carolina.

That’s it for now. Over and out- Deck of Cards

Wednesday, February 15th, 2006 is creating its second Deck of Cards featuring fellow gigposter artists. I was fortunatly chosen out of the many artists that submitted interest and was designated the 4 of Hearts to design. The deck should be available for purchase sometime in mid-march. I’ll keep ya posted. An art print, based on this, will also be available soon in our Poster Gallery! 


File 49 in Print

Wednesday, February 15th, 2006

My graphic novel File 49 is now in print and available to purchase through Amazon! This 260-page comic is the culmination of over three years work and includes the complete first arc along with 20-pages of bonus material.

File 49 cover

Keith has never done well around people. With the ability to read other people’s thoughts, Keith’s learned to live life as a loner. So, needless to say, when he’s instructed to pick up two kids that possess the same, strange mark that rests on his arm, things don’t go smoothly. In fact, it goes from bad to worse when a harmless journey to discover their forgotten past turns into a race for their lives where truth is hidden and trust is a struggle.

Join Keith, Josh and Truely as they try to uncover the secrets of not only themselves, but of the file that brought them together…File 49.

If you want to know more about File 49 and the other comics I create…you can visit Make Like A Tree Comics!
