Automica was a project where each illustration was drawn with the intent of individual reading and no set order. Only After all the images were completed was the final page order decided.
Initially there was little story between the pieces, but as more were drawn, a narrative started to emerge from my subconscious that I actively started pursuing.
I simply wanted to draw what was comforting to me at the time: Robots in various states and places. After the image was completed I decided on a caption that I thought reflected the emotions present in the piece.
There is a depth to the world I created that I hope readers can decipher with multiple readings.
In the future I want to use this project as a jumping point to tell more poignant stories with these characters and world. I believe there are a lot of things I can say with Sad Robots.
I printed a physical book that is for sale in my Zine Shop Here. The book is read in a landscape format to perserve the detail of each piece.

I’ll be introducing my new Comic Zine Automica at Exterminator City this weekend. A lot of talent folk/friends will be there and I’m excited to see the new faces I haven’t met.
I’ll be also selling more copies of Collected Sorcery and Fish Speakers, both can be previewed on my website. There will be some Dune and Fantasy Prints too.
I’ll be tabling with Laura D. Graves of Tribal Century Fame with her work BUTTS 2 BUTTS and Chopping Block. You can expect us to be drawing robot skulls with boobs and talking about ghost astronauts.
Come see us at the Push/Pull Art Gallery at 8537 Greenwood Ave N, Seattle Washington 98103
Come see me d00dz.

Full credits for the Goblin Week Zine. We were extremely overwhelmed by the volume and quality of submissions, and whittling them down to fit in 60 pages was HARD. Emails going out to everybody shortly, but if you want to trawl through this wall of text to figure out its secrets in advance of that, feel free.
