Preview of my piece for Cloudscape’s next anthology, Mega Fauna. It’s a 7-page story called “Shared Habitat”, and it’s about two kids exploring a world that humans can’t survive without our genetically-modified creatures.
Words and lines by me, amazing colours by Jak. :)))
Stoked I was able to turn being royally screwed on a deadline into an opportunity to collaborate with Jak. She was the one who introduced me to manga in high school and we spent many late nights power-leveling our comicking skills together. It’s amazing that we both managed to stick with comics and are now both making our mark on the industry.
It was a bit of a mad sprint getting this done so thank you so much to Jak for colouring all those damn frogs. She did the art for another piece in Mega Fauna as well (written by Shannon Campbell), and I wrote another piece about a Thai monk (with art by Everett Patterson.) Mega Fauna is an all-ages book about the shared lives of people and animals and it’s coming soon!
Save Sailor Bacon!
HijiNKS HANGOUT #1 with David Willis and Angela Melick is archived for your viewing pleasure.
We talked about conventions, Angela’s love for Pacific Rim, answered some questions tweeted to #HijiNKSHangout and drew pictures of, among other things: a Penguin Convention, other cartoonists, the Disney version of David’s life, and butt blood!
Long after David has died from butt blood poisoning, THIS is how I will remember him.
Some of the custom books I just shipped. Theme is: Weapon of Choice + Spirit Animal. I’m glad I chose that combo because drawing these have been really fun so far :D

Here is a sketch comic I made called Ducks, in five parts.
Ducks is about part of my time working at a mining site in Fort McMurray, the events are from 2008. It is a complicated place, it is not the same for all, and these are only my own experiences there. It is a sketch because I want to test how I would tell these stories, and how I feel about sharing them. A larger work gets talked about from time to time. It is not a place I could describe in one or two stories. Ducks is about a lot of things, and among these, it is about environmental destruction in an environment that includes humans. Thank you for taking the time to read it.
Kate’s best work IMO, read it read it read it
Agreed, really fantastic work. Highly recommended.
Jak’s comics are so great, I can’t wait to get my print copy :D
Here it is! The link to buy yourself a printed copy of Woo Hoo! Chapter 1! (click the image above to redirect you to the store!)
There are only 100 made, so once they’re gone, they’re gone! There is also an early bird special edition to the first 10 people who buy it - they get a special 8 x 10 glossy print! Ch-ch-check it out!
They each come with a 3.5 x 3.5 inch glowing burger sticker! (not actually glow in the dark, but I wish it did, haha!)
Jordan and I are super proud of it, so if you’re a fan of Woo Hoo!, please consider picking one up!
Reblogs and spreading the word is super appreciated. <3
This weekend is #ECCC, and I’ll be there! You can find me in booth 710, right there! THERE! Do you see it? There on the map. Come find me and say hi :D
I’ll have books and bees and prints and sketches and smiles. I’m so excited to see everyone! Aaa!
WE DID IT! Book 3 broke even today! This means that all of my costs (including boxes, tape, bonus prints and bees and stickers and what not, oh and THE BOOK) are covered :D That’s no small feat for a full-colour offset run, and to achieve this in 11 days is HUGE. It’s all thanks to you guys, and I’m so grateful to have an audience who supports me in making fun things :3
Now when I travel to conventions I only have to worry about convention-related expenses, and maybe I can buy a new pair of pants without having a panic attack, idk.
You can still buy the book, AND special editions are still available until they run out!.
Hello anon, thanks for the question.
