Would you like to buy a paper copy of this comic? Go for it! $2.50 each, shipping included, mini-mini size (4.25"x5.50"). If you put it in a clinic waiting room, I would love to hear how that goes.
I’m gonna be at San Diego Comic-Con! ON A PANEL!
Come and see me and some graphic medicine pals talk about comics and health!
Comics and Health: Saving Lives and Preventing Disease
San Diego Comic-Con 2016 - Comic Arts Conference
Sat July 23, 10:30-11:30am, Room 26AB
San Diego, CA, USA
Apart from the panel, I’ll be wandering around Comic-Con and befriending everyone in spitting distance. Woo, let’s jibberjabber about comicky books and medical junk!
Here comes the 7th annual comics and medicine conference! And this year, it’s in Scotland!
This will be my first time attending since I finished grad school and I’m looking forward to seeing if and how that’s overhauled my thinking.
I’ll also be giving a 5-minute lightning talk on the insulin comic I’ve been working on for Massachusetts General Hospital! Come and check this out during Friday’s Innovation in Care panel.
Graphic Medicine 2016 conference

... is that Dundee as in the hometown of The Beano? Yes it is. YES IT IS. I wish I could send a time travel postcard to Young Me, the little girl who read that comic voraciously. Minnie the Minx statue in Dundee, why don’t you reserve an entire day for us to hang out.
I LIVE! Hoo boy. GRAD SCHOOL, AMIRITE. Remember when I was planning to do ongoing webcomics about my school experience? Ha ha! Past Me, you are adorable and made of cupcake frosting. Oh honey.
The good news, though, is that I finished grad school! Ask me about masterís degrees in Health Communication! The final project involved creating an actual practical deliverable for an organization. My original plan was to make comics-format patient handouts, but my formative research turned up solid logistical reasons why this format wouldnít be a good fit. Read more about this in my jam comic with Comic Nurse over on the Mayo Clinicís Center for Innovation blog!
Iím currently working on more health-related comics, both for the web and for minicomics. Look for news and new stuff at these upcoming events!

Massachusetts Independent Comics Expo

Free admission! I have table space and plan on selling sparky new comics!
This weekend, Oct. 4-5, is the Massachusetts Independent Comics Expo (MICE)! Itís in Porter Square, Cambridge, and admission is free!
Iíll be at table A31 selling spanky new MINICOMICS! Come and check out Gross Vocabulary, the first collection of my grad school diary comics. Itís got what Iíve posted previously online plus new stuff exclusive to the print version.
I am so proud of my pals in Boston Comics Roundtable for putting on this festival every year. This is the 5th annual show, and it gets more polished and more fun every single year. And most importantly, they keep the admission free. This lets so many people drift in and dip their toes into indie comics for the first time.
