Hello! I hope you’re doing well. I just wanted to share that recently I made a two-page comic for Autoptic’s 2020 Catalog!
“Autoptic is an arts festival that celebrates independent print culture, with an emphasis on comics and print-based multiples as well as alternative & small press labels of varying media (autoptic.org).” The festival is based in the Twin Cities, Minnesota.
Since the festival wasn’t able to host an in-person event this year, they opted to create a catalog showcasing various artists and conducted some podcasts and interviews as part of their virtual event.
For my submission, I thought about how this year we all had to kind of revert back to the basics. Hard times like these really make us appreciate the small and simple things in life –at least for me it did. This comic was inspired by the “simple times,” childhood, and the ability to keep on dreaming.
If you would like to read the rest of the anthology featuring over 170 pages of content and other comic artists, you can order a physical copy here: https://checkout.square.site/buy/B2HH24OO2BV7COZSIIM6UN3D
Thank you and take care!
