Private Iris by Jamie Bautista and Arnold Arre

Meet Iris Able, the smartest kid in MacGuffin Plains. She has an encyclopedic knowledge about science, technology and math that it seems she has the entire internet in her head. But because she keeps to herself a lot, the other kids in school don’t know much about her and have resorted to calling her Private Iris.

Private Iris by Jamie Bautista and Arnold Arre

Private Iris, masterminded by Jamie Bautista and Arnold Arre1, is a mystery comic series that challenges kids of all ages to match wits with the brilliant but secretive super sleuth, Private Iris. When Danton, the most popular boy in school, joins forces with Iris, the most intelligent loner in town, you get a crime-solving team that can’t be beat! Get to know more about Iris, Danton, and the rest of the MacGuffin Plains gang by visiting their flashy new headquarters on the world wide web right here.2

Hope you can check it out, friends. I can promise that it’s a really cute, very well thought-out book and I am sure that kids will love it3. The launch is slated for next Saturday, April 19 at Fully Booked in Bonifacio High Street. Please visit the Private Iris site for details.

I’m touched that this blog still gets hits despite my sporadic updating. I’ve actually been up to a lot of things since my last post but I’m still up to my ears with work on our next issue among other projects so I’ll save the stories for later. For now, I’ll see you on Twitter or Tumblr. 🙂

  2. You gotta see the site! It’s really cool![ back]
  3. Call me biased but I can tell you that Jamie’s tight story and witty dialogue and Arn’s hilarious illustrations always gel so well together. You’ll see for yourself when you read Iris. 🙂[ back]

They’re already at my Cafepress and Printfection stores and it would mean a lot to me if you could help spread the word about them. 🙂

Oh! So Girly at Cafepress

Oh So Girly at Printfection
On Printfection. PF actually has a wider selection of t-shirt styles and colors so opening a store there as well seemed like a good idea.

Since I’m already pimping like crazy here, might as well go the whole nine yards and urge you to check out my new merch at Poptastic, including this design based on a quote from a popular late 2007 movie:
He is the cheese to my macaroni.
.
A pile of to-dos for the next issue of our mag has crept up on me so I can’t stay long. Meanwhile, let me leave you with a playlist1 I made to go with the girly illustrations I just bombarded you with. Cheerio. 🙂
