This is Benign Kingdom Spring 2012.

Art books by Yuko, Becky, KC, and myself. They look great and I guarantee you this is the start of something big…

Oh man oh man, the Benign Kingdom books have come in! That hardcover looks incredible.  If you didn’t see on Twitter, the bookplates also are lookin’ pretty cool.

Cricket photos, with a cameo by Rook.

I was looking through photos on my camera and figured I’d share some pictures of the latest terrible addition to the family.  Man, lookit her little black pads.  Lookit the little black freckles on her mittens.  Cricket’s the cutest, awfullest kitten.  We love her so much.

It’s pretty difficult to get photos of Rook and Cricket hanging out together because Rook will nearly always try to clean Cricket and then she’ll bite him and then it’ll go downhill from there.

answerin’ a question about comic sizes

William Tongue askedDear Yuko, what size do you draw the Johnny Wander originals at? How big are the letters at that size? Thank you for being so awesome and inspiring.


Aw shucks, thank you!  Short story comics (Girl with the Skeleton Hand, at left) are done at 9”x12” on smooth bristol.  Journal comics (at right) are done at 7”x10” in a sketchbook.  I’ve been told that I work unusually small — most cartoonists tend to work much larger than I do. (except for Dustin Harbin, who has the tiniest originals I’ve ever seen — like 4”x4”!)

Honestly, I have no idea how to measure my lettering!  I just do whatever fits in or looks right and my text sizes vary pretty drastically from comic to comic.  Some people assume that I have a font made from my handwriting (which is very flattering!) but no, I do all my lettering by hand.

Hey guys!  I’ve hit a follower milestone, so I’ve opened up the Ask Box until the end of the day!  I can’t guarantee I’ll answer your question, and I’ll only answer one question per day.
In the meantime, please enjoy this picture of my dumb cat.

A lovely photo of Rook, taken by John.  We put bird seed out on the fire escape every day, and Rook thinks this is the Very Best Thing.

Rook is an indoor cat.  He wouldn’t know what to do with the Mourning Dove if he ever caught it.

Welp.  John took an awkward photo of me while my eyes were dilated.

Welp.

My mom bought some cheap (possibly fake) ice wine and we were out on my parents’ back deck in NJ.  I guess this is the perspective that John sees me at all the time.  He has at least a foot and a half on me.

w-what… what is that face I’m making
