New video post, and what nots

New video post, and what nots

So I have done the second video post thing, I got a few other little ones in the work and I will do one about SPX after I go, I’m enjoying doing them. Perfectly Normal Human being is being updated constantly, I’m trying to learn how to make my scans look as nice as the originals I do, if that is even possible. My lettering has gone somewhere from horrible to almost legible, which is pretty nice.

The artist of our previous post, Luke Humphris (lukehumphris here on Tumblr), made these great business cards for this year’s SD Comic-Con. They are so well thought out, with touches like the LH logo wax seal, and were really fun to hold and open. It’s not our usual thing to post photos, but hey, it does include a good comic!

SPX TO ANNOUNCE INTERNATIONAL GUEST LINEUP
Tomorrow we’ve got a press release going out highlighting the international guests we’re excited to welcome to SPX 2014.
Some you may recognize immediately, others you may be encountering for the first time but every one of these talented creators is someone you should know!
Here’s the rundown!
Simon Hanselmann will arrive from Australia to debut Megahex, his eagerly awaited new collection from Fantagraphics, collecting the darkly comedic and unexpectedly moving comics that have earned him an enormous following online.
At SPX, Hanselmann will kick off a national book tour with Michael DeForge and Patrick Kyle; the trio will participate in a special live edition of the inkstuds radio show at SPX, led by regular Inkstuds host Robin McConnell and special guest co-host Brandon Graham ( royalboiler ).
Aisha Franz is a German cartoonist whose SPX debut and first book for Drawn & Quarterly ( drawnandquarterly ) is Earthling, which has also been published in German, French, Italian, and Spanish.
Franz lives in Berlin where she is a member of the Treasure Fleet comics collective. In addition to an active illustration career she has contributed comics to Pitchfork Review ( pitchfork , Kus!, Kuti Kuti ( kushkomikss ), and many more publications. Her second graphic novel, Brigitte und der Perlen-hort, has been published in German and French.
Yvan Alagbé and Dominique Goblet will travel to SPX from France and Belgium, respectively, with a range of work from the avant-garde Brussels-based publishing house Frémok. Alagbé co-founded the influential French publishing house Éditions Amok, which later merged with the Belgian publisher Fréon to form Frémok and continues to champion poetic work at the borderline of comics and fine art.
Alagbé’s new book École de la Misère, rendered in beautiful ink and wash, further expresses his clear-eyed, penetrating career-long investigation into mysterious desire and explosive cultural conflict.
Goblet, an early contributor to the Fréon flagship anthology Frigorevue, has produced a challenging and beautiful body of work that productively troubles the distinctions between fiction and autobiography, and between narrative and poetic image-making.
At SPX she will debut the groundbreaking full-color graphic novel Plus si Entente, a book produced collaboratively with German cartoonist Kai Pfeiffer. Working internationally, the pair swapped pages and responded to ideas, images, compositions and colors proposed by the other to test the possibilities of narrative within the comics form.
Exhibiting as Frémok, Goblet and Alagbé will also bring with them many works from the publisher’s catalog, including the award-winning collection of Kamagurka and Herr Seele’s Cowboy Henk comic strips (an instant sell-out at MoCCA) and the American debut of Kamagurka and Seele’s brand new Cowboy Henk book, Histoire de la Belgique (pour tous).
Mana Neyesteni is an Iranian cartoonist and illustrator for economic, intellectual, political, cultural, and professional magazines. He is particularly known for his work for the newspaper Zan and Persian language Radio Zamaneh.
A 2006 political cartoon by Neyesteni prompted riots among the oppressed Azeri minority in Iran; the paper in which the cartoon appeared was promptly closed and Neyestani was imprisoned. Upon his temporary release three months later he left the country and currently resides in France. He is the recipient of the Cartoonists Rights Network International award for courage in editorial cartooning, 2010.
His graphic novel An Iranian Metamorphosis was originally published in French, and will debut in an English-language edition from Uncivilized Books at SPX.
Publisher, editor, critic and event organizer Daniel Jiménez Quiroz is the editor of Revista Larva, the leading Colombian comics anthology, which publishes work by artists from throughout South America. Larva has spun off the comics publishing house Editorial Robot, which has published work by artists including Peter Kuper and Powerpaola.
Quiroz also co-organizes the Entreviñetas comics festival which is now in its fifth year and has featured guests including Gabrielle Bell, Ruppert & Mulot, and Anders Nilsen. At SPX, Quiroz will exhibit work from Colombia and will participate in a special panel about Spanish-language comics, including Spanish critic Santiago García, Colombian critic Pablo Guerra, and American publisher Scott Brown.
Quiroz’s visit to SPX is supported by the Ministerio de Cultura of Colombia. Many other international publishers and artists will exhibit at this year’s event, including London-based New Zealander Roger Langridge and Australian cartoonists Frank Candiloro, Matt Emery, Luke Humphris, Matthew Hoddy, Caitlin Major, Nicholas McIvor and Lex Sugden.
How about that line-up?!?


Hey! How about that, we’re in an official announcement! We’re official. Officially official.

Back from America

So I went to San Diego Comicon over the weekend, and it was a blast. I still worked my day job from 9pm-5am every night, then did the convention every day, I am pretty well destroyed here at the end of it. I wish I got to see more stuff that was going on, but I also wanted to be at my table and meet new people. I definitely made sure to duck out to get a photo with Mega64 who I have been fans of…

San Diego Comic con and updates and cool looking cards!

So I have to get up in 3 hours to go catch a plane out to California to attend San Diego Comic Con. Which is insanely rad, exciting, and terrifying. I have been slack with updating the site with a few troubles I have been having, but I have loaded a huge buffer up onto the site now.

100 tips will go back to updating every Tuesday and Thursday.

Perfectly Normal Human Being will update Monday,…

Really cool stick

Updates have been a little bit patchy as I have moved into my new house in Canada, but I am here now, internet is all set up and I have a desk, so life is pretty rad. I live about 20 minutes or so from that castle in Scott Pilgrim, so, that’s something worth writing about, right?

Check out the latest comics I have up, and my first video should be up in the next week or so.

Also, check out this…

Oh Canada

Sorry about the delays in updates this week, everything has been a bit up in the air lately. I have been in Canada for a bit over 2 weeks now, just got a house with my buds, so that will help make a routine easier. I will have to get my new book ready for sale at san diego comic con, which is going to be insane.

TCAF was amazing, got to meet a fair few people that I have looked up to for comics,…

TCAF, Canada, and all that jazz

TCAF, Canada, and all that jazz

So I have now moved to Toronto, Canada, this week. This is my first time in the continent and I am going to be living here from now on. I still have a few kinks to fix up on the website, but for the most part everything seems to be working. In the next couple of weeks I will be uploading some videos documented me and my friends travels over here.

The biggest news though, is this weekend I will…
