I’m going to be doing a summer correspondence course. The focus will be on advancing your understanding of layouts, color, contour line drawing, and printmaking for producing comic books. The 8-week class is $500. Payment plans available. This class is limited: only ten students will be accepted.
Who the hell am I? I’ve been drawing comics since 1988 – and writing about comics since 1995. I’ve taught drawing at Parsons. My work has been exhibited at the American Academy of Arts and Letters in New York and the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh. I have worked as an assistant to fine arts painters such as Francesco Clemente, Dorothea Rockburne and Gary Panter. Many of my paintings are in the collection of Bruno Bischofberger. My comic Storeyville is, allegedly, one of Chris Ware’s favorites. I’ve collaborated with Ben Jones. I was in a drawing contest against the French master Blutch – and it was deemed a tie! I have appeared in two volumes of Kramers Ergot. I am working with Dash Shaw on an animation project. I worked for the silkscreen wizard Frank Kozik. I am friends with Yuichi Yokoyama. I got into a yelling match with Brian Chippendale because I’m against photo-referencing. Jaime Hernandez taught me where all the freeways meet in Los Angeles. Gilbert Hernandez said my comic Pompeii was “pretty good”.
-3 figure drawings done on 3 x 5 index cards
-3 landscape drawings done on 3 x 5 index cards
-3 still life drawings done on 3 x 5 cards
-specific url links to any comics work you have done.
Applications due by June 1st. Email me - capneasyATgmailDOTcom - and I will send you an invite to the course blog so you see what it’s like. Check out my “Layout Workbook” series over at The Comics Journal. Overseas students welcome. Payment plans available - I will work with you to make it affordable. Thanks! -Frank Santoro

The newest installment in the OSCP series, OSCP5 is debuting at TCAF next week!!!
132 pages, B&W cover with Risograph printed cover and insert!
Includes chapter 6, 7, and 8 in the ongoing series with guest art by Christine Vu, Dirchansky, Kim Hoang, Linda Tea, and Nozmo!!
Only $12! Get your copy today!
Preorder here to receive bonus gifts (bookmark and sheet of stickers).
You can order a copy online for pick up at TCAF - just choose to ship to Vietnam when you check out to avoid shipping fees.
Preorders end on May 8th so please hurry! I had to place order for stickers to make it in time for TCAF and only ordered 5 more than needed. Any preorders after I run out of those 5 will get a sticker sheet but they will be of a different design. <3
Orders will start shipping May 13th! Please be patient, especially those who ordered sketches with their book as I want to make sure they turn out well!
Thanks to everyone who has supported the work and for reading! As always you can read for free on Smackjeeves. I will start updating the site with the new pages from Chapter 6 once a week on Sunday starting May 19th.
The cover was printed by Colour Code Printing in Toronto and they did a wonderful job. The paper and the colours including fluro pink that has to be seen in real life to believe are just perfect! Also thanks to RCS, I was able to print the insert in Osaka on glossy stock (!) in Riso in pink and gold. I’m really happy with how the binding turned out. The combo of cover stock and interior paper is just perfect. It’s all handbound by me but it feels like a book you can buy in the store…
Get this ASAP

First in a small series of illustrations based on well known skate spots in Barcelona. This image is in the process of being screen-printed, although I have a broken collar bone, from skating in Barcelona, and doing it with one arm is hard!

BOXES. A new
14” x 8.5” [EDIT: printer problems have changed this to a 12” x 9”] giclee print, now up for presell, which will last until Friday, May 3; all prints sold during this time will be part of a numbered edition exclusive to this period—AND they’re part of the sale mentioned below, so while they’re listed at $30, functionally they’re $21 during the presell.
Prints sold after that time will be part of a small unnumbered quantity debuting at TCAF. If you’d like to purchase a numbered print to pick up in person at TCAF, place your order as normal and then email me at dustyATdharbinDOTcom and I’ll refund your shipping costs and bring that mother right to you, along with anything else included in the order.
SPEAKING of orders, I’ll be running a spring-cleaning sale all week in my store, ending at 9am on Monday, May 6. Enter SPRING under discount code to get 30% off any order of $20 or more. That sale includes the above print! And pretty much everything else except the original drawing items, which will return once the sale has ended (and I’m caught up on orders, fingers crossed) also this Monday.
ANYWAY, the print—remember the print—is a redrawn version of 3 pages from the middle of my story “Boxes”, which is of all the things I’ve done creatively, the one I’m most proud of, though it’s pretty personal and more than half bleak. If you haven’t read it before, all 38 pages are up on my site, and it’s the last half of Diary Comics #4, which is available here and will be 30% off as long as you spend at least $20 in my sale—remember the sale?

We just posted our first ever Kickstarter campaign to make our new album Endless Fantasy more than just MP3s or a vinyl. We’ve worked really hard over the past 3 years to get this far, and now we need your help to fulfill our vision for what’s gotta happen next!
