2017 has been a year of firsts.
I've never traveled outside of the states before, so I was excited to take a trip to Mexico during June.

Some friends of mine are part of Bittersweet Ministries, a faith-based non-profit organization that connects Mexican and American communities. I spent a week in Tijuana helping to build a house for a local family.

It was an astounding experience. Fortunately, I journaled many of the events:

It was difficult to regularly maintain a travelogue. I've admired travel artists like Lucy Knisely for a long time.  I was happy to give it a shot and I plan to do something again like this soon.

Keep an eye out for a full comic documenting my experiences in Mexico:

July is going to be a crazy month for me. Stay tuned for Kaijuly year 3!

100 Pages of Minus

During this month, most of my energy has gone to meeting my milestone of 100 pages of my graphic novel, Minus.

And I made it! Hurrah!

Consequently, I have not produced much else this month.

In June, I will be traveling to Tijuana help with missions work. I plan on keeping a sketchbook journal while I am there. So stay tuned for that!

Here are a few other drawings I squeezed out in May:

Originally I hadn't planned on participating in any conventions in April, but a spot freed up for Lansing Fantasticon. Melissa and debuted our button-making service and had a good time.

We also now have a Facebook page for Pinback Buttons! Be sure to give us a like!

April also marks the anniversary my graphic novel getting picked up by Iron Circus Comics. I am finishing up the month with page 90 of Minus. Woo!

And as always, here is a dump of my doodles for the month:

Pinback Buttons: A Button-making Service

This month I took the plunge and bought a button-making kit.

I have considered getting one ever since my favorite button making service was discontinued. After some thorough research, I came across Button Boy Inc and was thrilled to find the perfect button making kit. It contained everything I was looking for, was a great price, and came in the mail in just 3 days! Free shipping too.

I've teamed up with my good friend, Melissa and we've been punching out buttons ever since.

Melissa and I have official set up our own button-making service, Pinback Buttons. If you have any events or conventions coming up, be sure to check us out. Our tumblr page has all the button specifications, prices, and submissions info. Take a look!

Update on my graphic novel, Minus:
If my estimations are correct, I am half-way through drawing the book. My goal is to finish drawing everything before the year is over. We will see how things move along.

And as always, here's a monthly doodle dump:
