This is the first comic for the next issue of Boredom Pays. I really want to knock this one out of the park and I think with this page I'm off to a good start - because hey - aside from some minor problems I actually like this comic. Anyway, the next issue is going to be amazing!

TCAF! Boredom Pays 3 for sale!

Hey everyone! I I've got some more comics in the works but in the meantime I figured I would make a couple of quick(not to mention awesome) announcements.

First off: I've officially put Boredom Pays#3 up for sale on the left hand side of the page. It's 40 pages of comics collecting all but one of the diary comics I've been posting on here since last fall presented in glorious black and white at the appealing size of 5.5x7.25 inches. I'm selling if for $6, but it should take at least twice as long to read than the last two issues.

Also: I'm officially going to be tabling on the Sunday of TCAF in the small press room between 11am and 5pm which I am TOTALLY STOKED about! TCAF is a really important festival to me because it is largely responsible for introducing me to the world of mini comics which has had an enormous effect on my life. Also, two years ago at the festival I gave out copies of my comics for the first time EVER so it feels like a major accomplishment to be on the other side of the table with work I'm proud of.

I am so much more excited about comics than I ever have been right now. I've got a lot of plans for future strips and things I want to do with them. It can only go up from here.

With ever so much love,
Jason <3

Boredom Pays #3 finished! Other stuff!

Well, it's been about a year since I put out an issue of Boredom Pays so I guess it's about time I got another issue out. It's 7.25x5.5 inches, 40 pages of black and white glory collecting all but one of the diary strips I've been posting on here for the past few months. I don't have it up for sale here yet, but I'll for sure have it up after this weekend.

Also, this Saturday (or, y'know, tomorrow) I'm going to be tabling at the Kazoo zine and comic expo in Guelph with my good friend Ollie who will likely be doing some awesome and super cheap caricatures. You should totally come by if you're in the area!

Then, on Sunday I'll be helping out Toronto's Artists Help Japan fundraiser. I'll be doing some live art, most likely some caricatures or sketches or something - I don't know - but it's going to be awesome! I'll be sketching from 6pm-9pm so you should come by, say hi and support the event, it's a really great initiative! For more information, go here.

Diary Doodles, an introduction

So this is going to be the introduction to the third issue of Boredom Pays. I've been killing it over the last couple of days trying to get this thing done and I'm happy to say that it's coming together quite well.

Also, just listened to a really great interview with Noah Van Sciver over on the ISR. I found out about Noah through Sam Spina and have since fell in love with his work. You should go check him out and buy the new issue of Blammo cause it's super good!

Yep, I think this is it. The last one. I'm in the process of compiling all of these Diary comics into the third issue of Boredom Pays. As it stands It's going to be 40 pages (4 comics per page) and likely at letter size. I'm still working on the cover, an introduction and a couple of other random illustrations but I should have it for the Kazoo zine and comic expo in Guelph on April 16th. After that I'll have copies of it for sale on here!

Also, I think I'm going to try to get out a new 8 page mini I wrote a couple of years ago about going to an Against me! show for TCAF in early May. No promises, but at the moment I'm super stoked about it!
