Pi-Con Bound

I’m off to Pi-Con today. All kinds of interesting things going on there, and interesting people including the guest of honor, Mary Doria Russell. I’m on a few panels, I will be signing books, too. Maybe I should bring a kantele to play just in case no one shows for the signing. I’m also having…

Connecticut Jaunt

Despite the tight schedule I have this month, I decided to take the opportunity to run down to Connecticut and see my pals before I take off for Britain for a month on June 1. I headed out with the sun shining and the windows down while I blasted music through the lovely Berkshires. First…

Jaws of Suspiria

I already wrote a bit about Jaws and my long connection to it, but I don’t think I’ve yet got around to the student reactions. It’s hard to keep track of things in the midst of the mad swirl of the summer intensive. I’ve made things even tighter by planning to run down to Connecticut…

A Jam-Packed Spring Break

Spring break is meant to give a little breather mid-semester, but somehow it always ends up packed with things I can’t do during the semester proper.

Thanks, Mike!

Pal Mike Rhode (he of the cool museum where this picture was taken) has given a nice plug for Jane Quiet at his blog, ComicsDC. Thanks! Check out Mike’s blog for all things cartooning in the greater DC area. He’s got everything there, including some great snaps of Adrian Tomine at his recent talk and…

Jane Quiet is here!

They’re here, they’re gorgeous! The Paypal link will be up shortly is up and the local comics shops will have them soon. Whoo hoo! Cheers to my co-creator — Elena rocks! UPDATE: Wow — check out the amazing plaudits we’ve racked up. I am grateful to these generous folks! Big thanks go out to Donna…

Out of the Blue

Wow — out of the blue, Elena got a terrific email from Donna Barr, creator of Desert Peach, Stinz and various other drawing and writing projects. We’re not sure who sent her a copy of Jane Quiet, but we’re really happy to have such nice compliments from an iconoclast like Barr. She suggests we make…

Proofs

Here’s the final cover for Jane Quiet. Elena got the proofs and inevitably, we noticed a few things that we need to change. Argh — editing is not my strength. Gene, of course, has a careful eye and spotted a few things that could be improved. The process of publishing is a lot of hurry…
