To Boldly Go! A Star Trek 50th anniversary zine

To Boldly Go: A Star Trek 50th Anniversary Zine

I contributed an illustration to an upcoming zine titled To Boldly Go, a celebration of Star Trek’s 50th anniversary! My piece is a big illustration of some of the many excellent women from Deep Space 9. DS9 is my favorite Trek series for a lot of reasons, so I decided to celebrate it with an illustration. The preview above is just a small sample of the final piece, which includes 17 individual characters!

The book is up for pre-orders from now through October 8th, with the option to buy just the book, or a bundle including some extra postcard prints and buttons.

While I was working, I also put together a bunch of video clips, so please enjoy about 10 hours of work condensed into about 16 minutes! Watch on Youtube »

If you love Star Trek, check out To Boldly Go and grab your own copy today!


Stardust + Candy Pre-Orders Open!

Stardust + Candy Pre-Orders Open

Hey there! It’s been a while since we’ve posted an update, because we’ve been hard at work on several projects! The first of these (that we can talk about) is a mini-comic created for Stardust + Candy, a Pokemon-Go Inspired Fanzine!

Our contribution is a short comic by Bug, telling a real-life story about her quest to find a Pikachu in the first few days of Pokemon Go, with some slight uh, augments to reality. (Pokemon Go is an ARG, after all!)

I don't think I'll ever find a Pikachu.

Stardust + Candy includes work by approximately 30 artists, and proceeds will benefit animal rescue and adoption through PetSmart Charities. The book is available for pre-order from August 3 through 17! If you love Pokemon Go, please give it a look!

Chio Chat 3: Revenge of the Chio

Join Us For: Chio Chat!

With Chio Chat episode 2 finally out the door, it’s time once again to get ready for a new episode! We’re currently taking questions of all sorts – ask us anything you’d like to hear us ramble on and on about for the span of approximately one hour at a time!

If you listened in on our last episode, we’ve altered our format a bit. Instead of doing mostly reader questions, we’re now also devoting part of our episode to just talking about a particular topic. Last time it was creative influences, but the power is in your hands to suggest some other topics! Click here to submit your questions and suggestions via our Google Form.

Don’t forget, you can now also subscribe to Chio Chat on iTunes and Stitcher Radio! Ratings and reviews are also always appreciated.

Chio Chat 2: Chio Harder

Join Us For: Chio Chat!

It’s that time again! After a pretty successful first episode, and with the end of the third chapter of Follower close on the horizon, we’re once again accepting questions for our Q&A podcast, Chio Chat!

We can give the best answers about stuff related to making comics or stuff that happens in OUR comics, but you can ask anything you want! We’ll try to fit in as many questions as we can in a one-hour episode.

Listen to the first episode, or submit your questions here! We’ll be accepting questions until the end of February.

We’ll post another update when the episode is ready for listening!

Ask a Chio

Ask a Chio: Do chio like coffee?

The only Chio (that we’ve met, anyway) who may have experienced coffee is probably Dia. Dia probably should not have coffee, whether it’s like or dislike. 

Chios are from Messenger and Follower!
