ABOVE: a recent illustration I did as a commission for a wedding gift. I have never been married before, but I imagine that a good one would look something like this. I like it.
ALSO: on Thursday I will be a guest on the Inkstuds radio program, a comics radio show/podcast broadcasting from the labyrinthine studios of CITR in Vancouver, British Columbia. I’ll be joining The Beguiling and TCAF‘s Christopher Butcher and host Robin McConnell to discuss, um.. Hold on let me read this email again. OH! Okay I figured it out. We’ll be discussing the retailing aspect of comics, how small pressers can work with comics stores, et cetera. And I bet we’ll talk about conventions, too, since Chris and I are both higher-ups at basically the two best comics conventions in the whole darned world.
I BELIEVE you can listen to a live stream on the CITR site, beginning at 8pm PST on Thursday October 15, but if I remember right that site is terrible for that stuff; I had to sign up for some annoying media player in order to live-listen to Kate Beaton‘s show a couple of months ago. Someone sounding a lot like me called up to talk about health care in the middle, which was of course the highlight.
LET’S SEE WHAT ELSE? Oh yes I’m going to start my DUNE BOOK CLUB on Monday, but I think I’ll do a separate post for that. I’ve been drawing a ton, but that also should be another post. Oh, and I think I might start up my own Etsy store to sell originals and books, but guess what–I’ll post that shizz if I do. For now I have a bunch of books to mail out today, and then I need to start on my next strip!
BUT I’D HATE to leave you without something more worthwhile in this humble post, so PLEASE ACCEPT, as a token of my great personal affection for you, this video of the two most beautiful hands in all of music; both of which belong to Mr. Art Tatum:
