At Wizard World in Chicago, I met Eliza Frye for the first time. I learned a lot about Eliza and her work, which includes the Regalia Project, a collection of nine short stories with illustrations. Since then, I have been following the progress of the Regalia Project, have pledged a little and am looking forward to my signed copy!
Eliza is a talented young graphic novelist, illustrator and exhibiting artist. Her short story, The Lady's Murder was nominated for an Eisner Award in 2009 in the category of Best Digital Comic. Her passion is evident when she speaks of her work.
In Columbus, we caught up a bit with Eliza. The Regalia Project is moving along and there is much excitement about it. Eliza surprised us with her news that she will be moving to Paris. I don't think the budget here at Johngy's Beat will allow us to take trips to Paris, but hopefully Eliza will stay in contact and give us some updates via email in the future.
I appreciate Eliza's time and am looking forward to her future work. We wish her a lot of success and happiness in Paris. We will be following her through ElizaFrye.com and we hope you check out her website, too. Good luck Eliza and please stay in touch.
