March: I hardly knew thee.

Above is a spot for the OC Weekly's story about the not-so-secret life of a dance teacher, and here're some recent sketchbook pages:

I've spent the last few weeks wrapping up various lingering commitments carried over from 2010 in hopes to finally feel like I've actually made it to 2011, especially with the heart of con season fast approaching.

Belated thanks to ECCC for a fun show in lovely Seattle, and Craig Foisy and Nhu Truong of the Tisch School of the Arts for having me speak with their students. It was a wonderful 2-hour talk, and they were awesome—far more intelligent, focused, and openminded than I was at their age. As VIETNAMERICA finds more of an audience, I hope to continue having great experiences like these!

VIETNAMERICA hits the road (and I with it):

This weekend is the first of hopefully many shows, events, cons, festivals, etc. throughout 2011 at which I'll be promoting VIETNAMERICA:

It's my first time ever at ECCC, and I'll be at Artist Alley's G12. I've heard great things about this show so really looking forward to it—c'mon by:

Most exciting is that after years of blood, sweat, and tears, VIETNAMERICA finally joins the ranks of my table wares! To celebrate this latest milestone in my ongoing efforts to be a self-supporting maker-of-pictures, teller-of-stories, every copy sold will come with a free special edition dust jacket (previously available only at the MoCCA book launch party).
