Graduation, MoCCA and Sundays 2
It's been kind of crazy around here lately. First, the class of 2008 graduated up at the Center for Cartoon Studies. Alison Bechdel was our commencement speaker. I haven't uploaded photos yet, but Joe has a few here, and I stole the above image of my thesis display from Chuck.
Since then, we've all been making moving arrangements, looking for jobs and putting together Sundays 2, which should be a hell of a book. Check out the updated blog here. Below is the cover, a beautiful screen print drawn by Joe Lambert and pulled by Alex Kim. You really have to see it in person, which I hope you do at MoCCA this weekend. We'll be in the Skylight Ballroom at table S53 - you have to take the elevator, but it's worth the trip. I swear.
Also, I'll have Only Skin 3 with me, as well as the first two issues. Rob Clough over at Sequart.org reviewed OS3 here, in case you forgot about it - he also gave Chuck's Snake Oil a great review, too.
Well, I guess that's it - I'll be hoping to see folks at MoCCA. The coolest event of the show will definitely be the Friday night book release party for pal Sam Gaskin's Fatal Faux Pas, Eamon Espey's Wormdye, Chris Wright's Inkweed and a new issue of Austin English's Windy Corner Magazine at Desert Island Comics in Williamsburg, a new store that's supposed to be awesome. The party will also be the first time Secret Acres comes out to play - they are publishing Sam and Eamon's books.
Ok, come out to MoCCA and table S53 in the Skylight Ballroom.
