Hey Liz (I’m toying with the idea of addressing blog posts to the last person who commented… although if we’re including the fact that I’ve started cross-posting to my livejournal account, this one’s addressed to Brandon Graham)
Anyway, just wanted to take a little space to round up some stuff that’s been happenin.
Here’s a picture I did for one of my favorite cartoonists who I can never talk enough about, Vincent Giard. He drew me a pigeon so I wanted to repay him in some way. A little bit of trivia — the shirt is for the Montreal Expos, the former MLB team from where Vincent is currently stationed, helping to create an exciting comics scene. It is also the team that moved down to DC a few years ago to become the Washington Nationals, supplanting the Oriels as the closest baseball team to my hometown. Go Nats! (ps. I don’t care about sports)
I drew this picture for the wonderful Katie Skelly, whose Nurse Nurse is one of the best mini-comics series right now. It’s wrapping up by the end of the year and I could hardly be more excited to see how it all shakes out. Maybe you recognize that pose?
You might be able to tell I’ve started playing around with half-tone patterns. I’m getting a bit bored with straight black and white. The grass is literally greener on the other side!
PUPPYTEETH was featured on Comics Comics! It’s all happening, as some friends used to say.
On a related note, I’ll be exhibiting for the first time at the first Pittsburgh Indy Comics Expo! It’s free to attend so if you’re within a two hour radius come stop by! I was excited enough to have a table there, but then I find out that not only is Katie Skelly also going to be there, but the guest list is out of this world! The two folks I was most excited about meeting at SPX — Kevin Huizenga and Frank Santoro — will both be there, as well as Jim Rugg and Ed Piskor.
I went to a wedding last weekend and had a really amazing time! I was accompanying my good buddy Jess Wheelock on an adventure from Cleveland to Pittsburgh to Erie and back again. A fellow CIA alum was marrying her sweetheart and it was nice to catch up with some folks from back in the day (the older cool kids). If you’re familiar with the Gyrator, yes I busted it out during Lady Gaga. That is all.
Here’s a picture of me looking like a child:
Besides all that, I’ve started playing real-life Animal Crossing. It’s a wild world.
Take care, y’all
