I was on a long flight with no in-flight entertainment, so I continued to plot out a longer-form comic that I hope to slowly release online mid 2018. I feel adverse to the idea of doing weekly updates, so it's more likely that it will be chapter releases every couple months. It will be titled Here We Are. I have 8+ chapters outlined thus far!

The idea for the comic is neither epic or particulalry interesting; it starts with the relationship between Jake and Austin from FujoSports/Expired Seafood: Tied Up, and may eventually branch out from there. Not unlike my other comics, it is really all about the feelings that people experience in every day life.

The name inspiration comes from Gloria Estefan's Here We Are.

Finished and submitted the comic for the next Love Love Hill zine, Love Love Heels! It's a pretty short story compared to what I usually cook up.

Love Love Hill's next zine is the older lady counterpart of Expired Seafood! I'm drawing a quick short story for it, featuring the characters below. Big thanks to Papermaiden for planting the seed and inspired this story.

One of the characters above originally appeared in the Expired Seafood 1 anthology...!!!!!

We are going to debut it at Lake's International Comic Festival happening October 13-15 in Kendal (UK)!

Stay tuned!!
