Anonymous asked: Hi Jam. Love your "new" hair color. Just wondering if you planning on keeping it or are you just to broke and or busy to get your hair done?
Oh this? Thank you!
I’m glad you like it but this is my hair all grown out after not having gotten it cut since July haha. I mostly fail to get my hair cut due to laziness, but it was all in my way and driving me crazy so I chopped it off!
I love it, but if you prefer the former just wait several months :3
Here’s some more of the stuff you can get from my Mad Tea-Party Kickstarter campaign (there’s less than a week left!)
First, one of the two paper-cut figures that Trevor Frick is designing for me. I’m not a very good photographer, but you get the idea.
And then, some of the art that will be included in the full-colour “Extra Features” book. A third of that book will be Mad Tea-Party art drawn by some of my friends, including Angela Melick, Kathleen Gros, and Steve LeCouilliard, pictured above, as well as Jeff Ellis, Nina Matsumoto, Kevin Wilson, Lucy Bellwood, Reetta Linjama, and more.
Hey, I drew one of these things! Jon only has THREE DAYS LEFT to raise the minimum funds he needs to print a book he spent NINE YEARS working on. He needs our help and I know we can make it happen!

Happy Halloween! I don’t often get dressed up but this year I decided to make a costume based on my favourite prototype development board, the arduino :) It was a lot of fun and it elicited a lot of bewildered stares but my techie friends loved it and so do I!
It’s hard to tell in the first photo but the outfit is covered in puff-paint traces - all up and down the arms and over the back. It was a lot of work but it looks really cool. The lights down the side blink to a pattern I programmed and are powered by the arduino around my neck. The wires along the side were glow sticks and represent the tangled mess that any arduino project is in its first stages.
My favourite part is probably the fascinator which has a second microcontroller and a little blinky thing. This was my first time soldering “free” wires and 8/8 of the LEDs worked, which I’m very proud of because the wires go alllll the way down the side and alllll the way back up the shirt.
Hello I am alive. My wrist is doing much better, but now I have a big mountain of backlogged work to conquer! Here are all the bonus comic pages from book 3. So many that I had to work a bit to find a spot in my tiny apartment where I could spread them all out!
They are all limited pallette watercolours. The greens give some extra context around what was happening in my job at the time and I think they really add to the big picture of this part of my life. They are scattered throughout the book.
The reds are about the Olympics and the blue/greens are about the 2011 Stanley Cup playoffs. Two very dramatic moments for a Vancouverite. There is startlingly little “actual hockey” in these comics, I think all you would need to know is that there are points and you want more of them, also there is overtime in case of a tie.
Anyway, this was the biggest chunk of work I had to do for book 3, still much more to do though in terms of illustrations, design and just logistics. I don’t have a drop date, since I broke my arm everything is kind of up in the air so all I can tell you is “yes there will be a book 3 sometime.”
Here it is, friends: the final installment of Canyon Comics! I hope you’ve enjoyed reading along and experiencing the adventure secondhand — it’s been great to share it all with you. I’ll be rescanning all these pages on the fancy new watercolor scanner at Periscope in the next few weeks so the print edition will really shine. I’m looking forward to making some quality full-color minis for you all.

Wonderful travelogue of what looks like an amazing adventure!
bookgal12 asked: What got you interested in posting your comics online?
I don’t think I really thought that one through, I was very young when I started. Probably because online you can meet lots of other artists and talk about art and that’s not something you can do as easily in real life.
Welcome to Vancouver! Uhhh lessee you should know about Wreck Beach, Japadog and Storm Crow. For reasons of personal privacy I’m not going to go into specifics about places I go on a regular basis, I’m sure you understand.
