I recently started providing a few gag ideas for the syndicated comic strip Rhymes With Orange by Hilary Price. The first strip I contributed to will run on January 20, 2017, with others to follow.
What’s exciting about writing for a strip like Rhymes With Orange is that it’s very different from Suburban Fairy Tales. The gags used in Rhymes With Orange would likely never be used in Suburban Fairy Tales, and vice versa. It allows my mind to explore new territory and approach ideas in an alternate way.
Hilary Price has been drawing and writing Rhymes With Orange, her daily newspaper comic strip, since 1995. It has won “Best Newspaper Panel” four times by the National Cartoonists Society and appears in 400 papers internationally. It is distributed by King Features Syndicate.
Suburban Fairy Tales will be featured in issue no. 2 of Comic Strip Cartoonist Magazine, which is available for preorder now. In addition to an interview and an in-depth look at my current and past comics, the second issue will also showcase the work of syndicated cartoonist David Reddick of Intelligent Life, Clay Sisk of Professor Herbert and G.E.O., and Allan Tracy of Floyd.
Comic Strip Cartoonist Magazine goes behind the scenes of cartooning to discover how cartoonists got their start. The publication covers creators’ methods of cartooning, the tools of the trade, and much more.
Reminder that I’ll be at New York Comic Con all weekend starting tomorrow to promote Suburban Fairy Tales! There will be a lot of show-exclusive merchandise including a color version of the new book, Hogs and Kisses, which is ONLY available at the show in limited quantities. Also for sale will be plush piggies, posters, and figures.
New York Comic Con will be held at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City tomorrow, October 6 through Sunday, October 9. If you didn’t get tickets by now there’s no way in the world you’re going to get them, so for those of you who are ticket-holders, see you at the show!
Today marks the release of the fifth Suburban Fairy Tales book titled Hogs and Kisses! Available now on Amazon for only $9.95, the new book features 120 pages worth of hilarity! In addition to two years worth of comics, the book contains a bunch of bonus content not available online including joke advertisements and the Three Pigs’ origin story as told in clay. This extra story shows the pigs crudely sculpted in clay, adding three dimensions of fun and ridiculousness to their funny tale.
Hogs and Kisses is the best Suburban Fairy Tales book yet, so don’t wait! Get the book from Amazon today by following this link!
