I’ve been trying hard to focus on some project since the school year ended (maybe even before that), but it’s been really hard. Like, I want to write something, but I think I’ve been making barriers for myself. I’m sure it’ll come.
I’m spending my summer in Montreal, as an intern at Drawn & Quarterly. Montreal is amazing, and Drawn & Quarterly is too— it’s funny and sobering to find out that the mythical name behind some of the best contemporary comic work is just a big room with 11 people working in it. They call Chester Brown “Chester,” Chris Ware “Chris,” and Lynda Barry “Lynda,” obviously, because they know them. Quite sick.
I’m enjoying my time there, but I also feel a strong drive to make something, and at the same time a lack of resources to do it??? All I need is a pen and paper, really.
Check out my other blog by the way:
Hopefully I’ll update it.
Medium-sized things to come!

I don’t reblog often, but this made me laugh
The second year of the Brown RISD Dual Degree Program is spent primarily at Brown, taking Brown classes. Because of that, I’ve been writing a lot: since I’ve been here, I got into the Brown short-form comedy magazine, the Brown Jug, and I performed at a stand-up open mic night (trying to do more of that).
Right now it feels like I’m working in two, very different modes: one that corresponds with my life at RISD, and one that corresponds with my life at Brown. I’m even thinking of starting a separate blog, to put all of my written work in. I’m hoping at some point the two come together.
Anyways, this is my Intro Video final project, which I wrote with some friends. It features the incredible production work of fellow RISD student Simeon Condev
