Pre-order: Together and Apart by Andrew White.

I mentioned Fieldmouse Press’s latest Kickstarter campaign a couple weeks back. I’d like to draw special attention to one of the titles involved: Andrew White’s Together and Apart.

White is such a talented cartoonist. His work is just so subtle and well observed. Bellissimo.

Together and Apart: Biographies of Virginia Woolf, Gertrude Stein, and Georgia O’Keeffe by Andrew White – 296 pg. black and white hardcover.

Three separate biographies connecting three ground-breaking artists, told in their own words. Andrew White brings his gorgeous and lyrical style to a set of biographies that read like a whisper and a song. White adapts the writings and work of these three artists in an active dialogue with the source material of their lives.”

NB. It’s worth noting this is a collection of previously published material, with additions. You can read about it here:


I recently found out Andrew is a graduate of one of Frank Santoro‘s correspondence courses. That fits. It’s the subtlety factor. And the sense of artistic inquiry present in both artist’s work.

Santoro’s old blog is still online, including bits of teaching material. ↓


Jonesy by Maggie Umber.

Maggie Umber has just dropped a new mini-comic.

Jonesy is a wordless, watercolour mini-comic based on a dream…or as some would say, a nightmare. Maggie and Mom go on a wild ride. A cat, a dancing tube man and a suburban van collide in this night-time misadventure.”

Jonesy by Maggie Umber. 24 pages. 5.5 in x 8.5″. Pamphlet, saddle stitch. Full colour inkjet on matte cardstock.

Looks gorgeous. I can’t wait to read it.


Simon Hanselmann–You Will Own Nothing and You Will be Happy.


You Will Own Nothing and You Will be Happy.


Update: 05 May 2023: After what felt like a bit of a delay, You Will Own Nothing and You Will be Happy is available to buy through Simon’s store. Click here:


The reason I love Simon Hanselmann: He does the gags and the gross, sure, but then, every now and again, he drops something like the above, something that carries just an unbelievable amount of emotional and aesthetic heft.

Keep an eye on Simon’s socials for the first issue of You Will Own Nothing and You Will be Happy, a new quarterly serial. It’s coming soon, apparently.
