Creator of the LGBTQ-oriented webcomic, Go Get a Roomie (and recently a more fantasy-themed comic Headless Bliss), this queer artist is all about love and respect in every-day life. Also, boobs. So come by and say hello!

Geekers op je Speakers

You can say many things about Abe and his art. But you won’t care about that when you hear that he will bring his BUTTON MACHINE to yaycon. Run to his table for BUTTONS ON REQUEST!!!
This is your chance to eternalize your favourite pet, waifu or your own excrement on a button by a professional artist. BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE! Abe’s buttons are better than other buttons because you have an option for GLITTERS. There is gold and silver, and it’s your choice which one fits your waifu or excrement better.
Are you stressed out by choices?! Then Abe has many other products for you. There are buttons of Pokémon and moldy cats. Or maybe you would like to read something. Then buy his dairy comic “Squabe, Glamerloze Erkenning”. It’s full of failed dates and imaginary hot Spanish guys. Are the Spanish guys not hot enough? Then buy Abe’s “Hunk-A-Doodle”, they are full of hunks with a lot of junk in the trunk.
