Bangs and Beard

Hey dudes! For the last three years (or something I don’t want to do the math) my girlfriend and fellow cartoonist, Melinda Tracy Boyce, and I have shared a joint tumblr called Gingham Ghost where we would post our comics and art side by side. The name Gingham Ghost had a lot of problems. First, it didn’t really say much about us. Second, our black ghost logo looked somewhat similar to the logo of another comics publisher. And last, for some reason most people don’t know what gingham is. So we have decided to change our joint tumblr name to Bangs and Beard.

I really like how the logo turned out and I’m excited to start using this new name at expos and as our publishing company. Also our motto is “Victory or Death!”… Because, you know, comics till we die!
