August 19, 2014 — Today marks my last issue with A List Apart.
Illustration can be a solitary endeavor, and my particular method of crafting demands a lot more isolation than I’d prefer. But A List Apart has always helped me feel a lot less alone, yesterday more than ever.
It has been my absolute pleasure and honor to work on this magazine for the past nine years. Jeffrey gave me a place to dream, to run without fear. There is no question in my mind that I could not have succeeded as an illustrator without it.
I have had the opportunity to work with some of the smartest and most talented people I’ve ever met in my life. The chance to help tell their stories, and voice their passion. To serve an amazing and rare community that prefers to build rather than tear down.
To those of you who read, who have contributed, and especially to those who make A List Apart, I bid thanks and a fond farewell. Words cannot express how you’ve made me feel.

May 29, 2014 — Good news! I’ve got another book coming out. A mystery! You like mysteries, right? You do?!!!! Hmmm… perhaps I will give you clues about the book, and you can figure out what it is yourself, like a real life detective! Wait… unless you already clicked on that link. Did you already do that? So, you totally just… skipped to the end of the mystery. Nice. Way to kill something that could have been really fun. Ugh. You’re the worst.

April 17, 2014 — Please gather round for a quick announcement! Closer. Closer. That’s it, tuck in there. Lots more room in the front here… don’t be shy. Yes, I’m talking to you, ma’am. What’s your name? Henrietta? Really? That’s an unusual name. You don’t see a lot of “Henriettas” anymore. No… it’s great, it’s a good name. I was hoping your name might be Lulu, though. It would have been an excellent segue to my announcement. Well, because the book is called Lulu’s Mysterious Mission. Oh, yeah… I’ve got a portfolio entry with concept art and everything. Dammit — if your name was Lulu that would have been perfect. Well… I mean… that WAS the announcement… no point in using the megaphone now. Okay, everyone back to work or whatever.
