Comfort; a collection of paintings by Jeremy Sorese

Here’s one of the handful of new paintings I’ve been very busy putting together in a book for TCAF. And knowing how I am with comic conventions, I won’t have enough time to snap some photos of the finished product before I board that bus for Toronto so here’s your heads up two weeks in advance. 

I’ll be tabling with Hannah K Lee, who if you don’t know already, is a supernova amongst trembling feeble dwarf stars.

Jeremy Sorese is too good for this planet. See you on the moon.

Here’s a page from Paula Almeida's wonderful piece in PUPPYTEETH 4.

Like with Laura Knetzger, I’ve been a big fan of Paula’s work for quite a while, and am very excited she agreed to be a part of this book.

Debuting at TCAF, preorder your copy now!

Friendship Edition is making a book! I’m one of the artists that makes up this collective, and we’re doing a 3-colour risograph book. It’s mostly short comics (3-5 pages each) and some art and illustration. It’ll be available at TCAF!
My story is 5 pages long and tells a story about coping with death through graffiti.

Another commission! This was a joy to work on, since I love the web comic these characters are from, Project:Ballad. It is my faaaave <3
http://projectballad.com/
Plus the costumes were really interesting and complicated (and impossible??). They’re cosplaying as the Heroes of  from…FFXIV? Final Fantasy Tactics? Ok I don’t know too much about the game, but I did the best possible with the ref images and I’m quite happy with it.

Today, on Project: Ballad!

It’s funny - when I first learned about Kat’s work I became a fan almost immediately. It seemed like the first time we met we became friends pretty quickly, and since then she’s become a fan of my work in return. Hard to believe, but very excited for seeing her take on our kids. That’s probably the best drawing of Kim ever made

DUMB #4 and #5 to DEBUT at TCAF!

DUMB #4 and DUMB #5, by Georgia Webber

24 pages, stapled

Red and black, Self-published

www.georgiasdumbproject.com

In Toronto-based artist Georgia Webber’s debut series, Dumb, the silent medium of comics is used to describe her own silence — the result of a vocal injury sustained in October 2012. After chronic pain forced her to stop speaking for all but a handful of minutes a day, Georgia set about creating new ways to communicate, to continue life, and to support her recovery. Her comics tell the story of her turbulent internal experience alongside the unique reactions and situations that arise. Her recovery, like the series, is ongoing.

The story is being serialized online at www.georgiasdumbproject.com. Updates Monday and Thursday.

+ Print Only: Additional Content +

With these new editions, Georgia brings you into the larger project a little further by including prose introductions by special guests on facets of the voice not included in her comics. A music writer heralds the power of the scream, a social activist learns to speak for herself, a language-learner explores new vocal personalities, and a professional opera singer-turned-voice-coach describes her instrument and the need to care for it.

+ Praise for Dumb +

Georgia Webber nominated in the Spotlight (“Nipper”) category of the 2014 Doug Wright Awards! 

Dumb #2 nominated for an Expozine Alternative Press Award!

"In Dumb, the feeling of powerlessness to express oneself is expressed in a completely articulate and powerful cartooning voice. It’s a totally fascinating and meaningful comic.”

Dash Shaw, creator of New School and Bodyworld

Dumb is a passionate recount of a painful, frightening and very human experience.”

Eleanor Davis, author of the forthcoming How to Be Happy (2014)

"Georgia Webber’s Dumb has an interesting subject matter that ropes you in and I’m here to tell you that it delivers. Dumb is a pleasure to read and I bug Georgia about the next issue whenever I see her.”

— Ed Piskor, author of Hip Hop Family Tree

"Georgia Webber’s DUMB is an excellent example of how comics can do things that other mediums can’t.”

— Glyn Dillon, author of The Nao of Brown
