    Hey friends, I’m so excited to finally tell you that I’ll have 20 pages of wizards, beasts, and other magical beings in the supercool comics anthology Irene 5! If you’ve been following my sneak peeks on instagram, this is what Shy Wizard is all about.

    The book is 160 pages and filled with the works of many other talented dudes and is set to debut at APE next month. I won’t be there but you should definitely go check it out. (if you walk by Irene’s table, DW will put the book in front of your face and sweet talk you until you read it anyway). 

    If you’re already super stoked and want to preorder a copy, you can do that here!

    (also I’ve only been in two bars in my life, but I think this is how shit goes down there?)

    This is my internet project. A new page every day of a new comic every month. Kicking off with some old favorites (of mine, if nobody else), The Imps. You can read their further adventures if you don’t know what I’m talking about. Or even if you do.

    New Internet project from Pat Barrett!

    Pat Barrett will also be appearing in the new issue of Irene!
