Hey all! No punchline today! We left NYC and came to MD just as the season rolled over. The air gets a little crisper and you break out the hoodies and jackets, and that's always a very tangible moment for me and I finally decided to make something of it. We'll get back to the jokes next week!
Just a reminder, any orders made now will ship after October 3rd: we're out of town till then! Thanks for understanding!
That's all for us - see you next week!
Yuko took a trip to the Museum of Natural History in DC while we were in town for SPX, and these are some of the dinos she drew. My favorite is the allosaurus skull in the upper right corner. So sleek, it just needs a racing stripe.
Just a reminder, we're out of town so any orders made for the next 1.5 weeks will be shipped when we return to NYC! We're in DC for my best friend's wedding and it is getting c-c-c-crazy in here! We're out, catch you Tuesday!
I actually only dropped one tic tac, but ... Ugh, that peanut was pretty gross! That's what I get for my hubris, I guess.
Orders are going to be running a little later than usual - Yuko and I are going to be away for a week and a half in DC for my best friend's wedding. The comic will update as usual, but we won't be able to do any shipping till we get back. So that is just a heads up on that!
We realized it'd been a while since Conrad's been in JW (he moved to Queens so he could be closer to work), and that got us thinking ... just what IS Conrad up to these days? He was in Taipei for work, but during his off-hours he made friends with people at a local bar - surprising none of us, who know that if there's one person who could befriend anyone human or alien, it's Conrad. He's back in NYC now - welcome back man! Hope the trip was good.
Hey everyone! SPX was a lot of fun, but we spent most of yesterday on the road and we're TAURtally tired ... so today's update is just doodles from Sunday night, some lesser known Taurs for your amusement. Thanks everyone who came by and bought something and/or said hello - pleasure to meet you all!
Yuko also did some drawings of Jade, the three-legged pug who delighted SPX. Take a look:
I played Uncharted 1 & 2 recently and there is an awful lot of jumping! Actually, there are a lot of video games with an awful lot of jumping, but Un2 tested reality just enough that I began to wonder if I couldn't perhaps make a few jumps myself.
SPX is this weekend! We'll be there with books, prints, catmera charms and whatever else we can bring along! Here's a floor map for your convenience (look for the balloons at D8!):
John moonlights as a master jewel thief.
Really short post this time - comprehensive post with our SPX table location and all that on Thursday! I'm doing a whole bunch of shipping today so it's all squared away before SPX ... so I'm keeping it short!
See you on Thursday! And hopefully this weekend!
Kids are wacky! And Lela works with them at the daycare, so we always get stories at the end of the day. Lela's been in a quite a few of the past comics, so we figured it was about time to do one of these with her (Cricket will get one too, eventually, for those who asked). Lela is our most recent roommate and also, among many things, a book maker! And her books are really nice, with nice thick paper and heavy board or leather covers and handdone bindings. She'll be selling them at her table with Evan at SPX, so check 'em out.
I don't even know.
If this Kickstarter for a Pirate-themed game gets fully funded, Yuko will be providing art for one of the cards! And there's a Yuko Ota pledge package that includes some original art from her. Take a look.
