Bikes and Bears and Books

I can't believe I forgot to post for the whole month of November! I had plenty of things I could have written about, too. Like the I Know Joe Kimpel gang and I went to APE in San Francisco, where we had a great time, sold a lot of comics, and met Matt Groening.

This last thing was huge for me, since Mr. Groening is a fellow alumni of The Evergreen State College. Go Geoducks!

After APE, I attended a library conference for work in Boston, taught a class of high school students with cartoonists Bryan Stone and Jon Chad, went home to the Northwest for ten days, then got back to Vermont and collapsed in a heap.

All the while (on planes, in hotel rooms, in coffee shops, and when I should have been paying more attention) I've been drawing comics!

Yup, I'm still working on that bear story. More here.

After I was done scanning pages, I attended a bike parade to celebrate the 37th Birthday of Jon Chad's bike, Scamander (hey, it's White River Junction. We welcome any excuse to have a party).

I don't have a bike anymore, so I stood on the street corner, yelling and taking photos.

And I learned that I don't take very good pictures in the dark. This was the best of the bunch, but there are more of these on flickr, too.

Giant Size Tragic Relief is now available at Atomic Books. Right now that's the ONLY retail store where it's available, so be sure to grab a copy.

  2. Thanks Kubby.

    Moon bears are so pretty. I just wanted an excuse to draw them.
