I will be exhibiting at the Small Press Expo in Bethesda, Maryland on September 19th & 20th with the Boy, I Love You crew! You’ll be able to find us at table N4.

BILU editors Kou Chen, Emily Forster, and I will be joined by contributors Aatmaja Pandya (creator of Travelogue) and S.M. Vidaurri (author of the upcoming graphic novel Iscariot and Iron: Or, the War After).

We will all be selling personal work (prints, minicomics, and graphic novels), and I will be selling giclée prints of my illustrations for Boy, I Love You and Terrestrial. An exclusive excerpt from my BILU story, “Cannon Fodder,” will also debut in our Boy, I Love You preview minicomic.

I’m delighted to be exhibiting at this show again, especially among such talented and charming peers. I hope to see you at SPX!

New Book: Boy, I Love You – a BL comics anthology

It’s my pleasure to announce that I’m co-editing and contributing to a new comics anthology: Boy, I Love You, and we’re currently fundraising for the book on Kickstarter!

Boy, I Love You
is a comics anthology celebrating the boys’ love genre. Six stories from six creators will introduce you to radio hosts, models, mecha pilots, & vampires, and the challenges they’ll face at the intersection of life & love.

BILU will be a 196-page black & white, perfect-bound paperback book, and we need your help to commit all these smooches to print!

This book proudly features stories from Kou Chen, Aatmaja Pandya, Stephanie Bailey, Emily Forster, Marlena Konglau, & myself, with a cover designed and illustrated by Caelin Cacciatore.

We aim to depict genuine relationships with a dash of fantasy, highlighting everything we love about BL: melodrama, cute bods, and boys who are allowed to live and love outside a fixed idea of masculinity.

Our Kickstarter to crowdfund & preorder the book is now live, featuring exclusive minicomics, prints, and commissions! Please help us make this book a reality! For more information about the anthology, including previews from myself and our other contributors, please visit the BILU blog.

Note: BILU features more risque content than my usual work and aims to be appropriate for older teens.
