I'm taking a weekend trip up to the Olympia Comics Festival. I'll be sharing a table with Sean Christensen and Amy Kuttab, and we'll have the hot off the presses second printing of our collaborative comic, "Play Overlord". We'll also have a nice selection of Secret Acres books as well as all my own books, zines and prints. I was at this show last year and it was a fun time, so I'm excited to be making it back.

I've just put up more original art for sale over at my Etsy shop www.theoellsworth.etsy.com . Above is the newest version of the gentle monster that I love to draw and below is a pen and ink drawing that I orginally made as an endpage design for the Best American Comics 2010 anthology that Neil Gaiman edited.
I've been off working my way through the tricky world of my new book as much as possible lately. I tend to be secretive about works in progress until they feel like they can properly step out into reality without evaporating on me. This new work has been the most challenging process by far, and also the most fun. I feel like I'm getting closer, inch by inch, to really being able tell the stories that have been hiding inside of my art. It's an exciting feeling. If I can just keep the momentum going! Above is a another small glimpse of what I've been up to.
