1. I played around with a Cintiq for the first time the other day. I’m not quite able to get the same strokes as I can with a brush, but I can see coloring and re-draws/editing being a lot easier than on my regular tablet. Anyway, here’s a little poster I made.

    Read this comic at star-teens.com!

  3. Here’s a comic I drew for the Cartoon Issue of Seven Days, a free Vermont Independent newspaper. It was written by Alicia Freese!

    So I was published in the same paper as James Kochalka and Alison Bechdel, but also with my friends Luke HealyDakota McFadzean, Eleri Harris, Melanie Gillman, Aaron Shrewsbury, and Jon Chad! Feels good.

    Josh Lees’s science fiction teen dramedy “Rigel and the Star Teens” returns for its second installment in Maple Key Comics issue 2!

    From "Rigel and The Star Teens"

    The first part found the gang discovering a rusting mech on the beach, learning about an ancient instrument called a “piano” of all things, and lamenting their exile on the remote planet of Eos, the site of a devastating war twenty years earlier. What manner of mischief will Rigel and the Star Teens get into next?
