…and if you want to see me in comics-making action (perhaps excluding the sad punching and lighting stuff on fire), I’ll be working on a couple of projects at the…
first day of autumn here! but i’m not sure what season we just had. strange weather.
Dear everyone I work with, have worked with, or ever will work with:
If you ask me to tell you my name so you can credit my contribution in a project/exhibition/anthology, and I tell you my name is SpAE, please use SpAE. (or SpÆ for extra points and respect from me!)
If you need me to provide a surname for whatever reason, ask me for my surname. Don’t go inventing one for me. Don’t go piecing something together from previous projects. If you want me to provide a more “normal” looking name, ask me for one.
If you ask me to provide a name for an event or product, use that name. Most people are able to understand this. Thank you.
I thought this would be fairly basic courtesy, but I’m still disappointed by the number of exhibitions, anthologies, etc that I’m in that suddenly decide to publish me under a name I never gave them, or a name that is not associated with my art and work. Organisers who do this: please don’t tell me you changed my name without asking at the last minute (or not bother to tell me at all!) as it is unprofessional and won’t do much but confuse people who were expecting to see my work and convince me you’re not really able to organise an event or product after all.
I have repeatedly let this slide in the past. This is a public affirmation to myself and to the people who support me that I am a little bit over this crap.

had an idea for a new minicomic last night and roughed up some things, found some other things that were already floating around. this one is by far the most “zine-y” thing i’ve done. i don’t know if i’ll ever put it out as a minicomic, but i might turn this page - the cover - into a postcard by itself.
