Welcome, everybody, to the very first blog post on Urban-FairyTales.com. I will be updating the website with new contents and blogging about my art adventures, so be sure to check in regularly!
I am really thrilled to announce an exciting news in this very first post – my first graphic novel Dear Beloved Stranger has been awarded with the prestigious Xeric Grant for comic self-publishers! When I was six years old I wanted to grow up and become a Ninja Turtle. Twenty years later, Peter Laird’s (co-creator of the Ninja Turtles) foundation gave me a grant to publish my own comic book. How cool is that? You can go to the comics page to learn more about Dear Beloved Stranger and download the preview. Also, don’t forget to check out the latest promotional video I made. spoiler alert: you’ll see me singing a song!
More work remains to be done until Dear Beloved Stranger can hit your local comic book store, but I’m really excited to put on a different hat and make it happen!
