New Book Released: So Silicon Valley

so-silicon-valley-cover-01

What happens when a graphic designer from SoCal moves to Silicon Valley to work in tech? This comic collection of comic vignettes chronicles the strange, unexpected, hilarious, and infuriating experiences of that artist-turned-marketer in techland. Printed, stapled, and folded by me. At less than $7, you know I’m not paying myself for my own labor. Let’s call it an “unpaid internship.”

16 pages
5.5×8 inches

Available in the Shop at Storenvy!

So now you know why I’ve been so quiet lately! I’ve been working on this memoir about my four years spent in Silicon Valley. You can look at this as a precursor to Attention Passengers, since I drove the long distances from South San Jose to Menlo Park, Fremont to Sunnyvale, and everywhere in between before I moved and began the commuter life on the rails.

Don’t worry; I have some news about Attention Passengers coming up. In the meantime, check out this new book!

Now Arriving at Your Station: The Coloring Book for Your Commute

Attention Passengers: Adventures on Public Transportation is now arriving at your station and is available in the shop on Storenvy!

final-book-03

Featuring:

  • 36 pages of crazy antics and cool people spotted on public transportation for you to color
  • 5.5×8.5″ size so it can travel with you
  • Printed on luxurious 100lb uncoated paper to prevent color bleed.
  • A portion of profits goes toward a great charity (check back tomorrow for the full details)!

This book is intended for audiences ages 16 and up, not for younger children. Why? There’s a page that acknowledges the use of drugs on the train as well as arrests, plus a page that acknowledges homelessness. If you want to explain to your kids these things in a supervised setting, be my guest, but I intended the book for adults.

Pick up your copy at Storenvy and message me if you have any questions!

A Whole Mess of New Drawings

pile of drawings 01

Went into overdrive, thanks to a combination of intense inspiration and pressure to complete the book, and created a ton more drawings. Actually, I have so many drawings now that I can roll around on a pile of them and throw them around like I’m rich!! …Except it’s in drawings, not money. Haha.

How many of these drawings have you seen so far? How many are new? Which are you looking forward to seeing finished?
