penny dreadfuls and Anna Paquin

Formulating this history class has got me spread way thin. Not to mention about 30 books spread about our living room. PLUS we have to go home this weekend - which means I might as well just give up.

...and why do like Almost Famous so much, huh?


Go Outside! - again.

I'm having issues with my scad web space. Grrr... So here are the 3 pages that may or may not have shown up for you on the previous post...


A new short - Go Outside.

As a theme for a mini-comic my grad class chose 'Big Animals and Small Kids - or Big Kids and Small Animals.'

This is my contribution.


San Diego - after the fact.

I realize it's a bit late (a week and a half) to be posting ComicCon stuff, but with other mess going on I'm doing good to be awake. Developing the eLearning course for scad is killing me - it just takes too long. Not to mention the round of malaria I suffered through last week - or the aweful trip home (being stuck overnight in texas) - I am officially boycotting American Airlines.
Enough complaining. The convention was good this year profession-wise, so that's good.

The day before the convention we went over to the Hotel del Coronado.

We walked over to the beach as well. I think it was more like we went to the beach and walked over to the hotel.

I noticed a feeble attempt to get grass to grow. I thought it was cute. Our grass grows faster here in Savannah than we can cut it.

Just as last year, we rode the trolly back and forth - just a little further this year. I have decided that San Diego is not for me. I don't like the town that much. I like San Francisco much more. Diego's a little too surfy and beachbummy.

Imagine this line of people times about 30 - then wrap it around the convention center, in the unusually hot and sweaty air. This is the line for those who didn't pre-register. 2 hour wait? 3?

This Bane goober was everywhere I looked. I saw him everyday.

It was great seeing people that I hadn't seen in a while, plus getting to meet lots of new folks. I always enjoy looking at all the cool comics artists out there. I must admit it's mostly nice to not be there for the same things 90% of attendees are. There's never a line to see the people I want to see and everyone wants to talk and likes seeing work and mini-comics.
My favorite finds this year? The Sam and Max sketchbook by Steve Purcell and a cool book from First Second - American Born Chinese by Gene Luen Yang.

I start a new story this week.
