Happy Holidays! I made this card for a law firm that my friend works at.
The hurricane knocked out my internet connection for a little while. A nearby cafe was nice enough to let me use their WiFi in the meantime. I painted this for them in return:
1/11/2012 I have a window display up at Books of Wonder in Manhattan. Drop by and check it out. They also sell all my stuff there autographed. Unfortunately, these things never photograph well:
12/27/2011 Happy Holidays, everyone. The Odyssey was featured on notable "mommy blog" Belissimakids.
12/5/2011 Last weekend, I was an exhibitor at "The Brooklyn Comics and Graphics Festival."
The night before, I'd done an event in Oxford, Pennsylvania , and had not slept much. I'd slipped away momentarily to grab a quick lunch, but it wasn't sufficient. About half way through the event, I had a minor insulin reaction, and blacked out (on my feet).
As a diabetic kid taking injections, this used to happen to me quite a bit. As an adult with an insulin pump, much less often.
While I was fading in and out of consciousness, legendary book cover designer and author, Chip Kidd stopped by my table. He bought a copy of "The Odyssey", and complimented me on it. At this point, I was babbling incoherently, or maybe unable to form words at all. I signed his book, or just scribbled. I can't be sure. It was like the dream everyone has of being naked in school.
I spoke to at least a couple other people before I ate some chocolate and recovered. If I acted strangely, I apologize.
Other than that, the event was great. I had the chance to catch up with old comic book friends and acquaintances. Many visitors were very kind and supportive of my work.
The experience was at once extremely flattering and humbling.
11/29/2011 Becca Zerkin and I created a series of three pop-up greeting cards.
I wrote an essay of sorts, about my cutting machine; the Craft Robo Pro. It's on my extras page [here]. When I get a chance, maybe I'll write another one about my insulin pump. I don't have a car, so these are the two most important gadgets in my life.
