Ananth's blog

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.

A TAURrent of activity

Tue, 09/13/2011 - 15:05 by Ananth in response to spx-taurs

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: 

SPX in Bethesda, MD!

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!):

Waaait a minute

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!

Lela!

Thu, 09/01/2011 - 16:01 by Ananth in response to watch your language

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. 

Kickstart

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. 

What

Thu, 08/25/2011 - 16:10 by Ananth in response to taking it off

I started telling this story to Yuko and she finished it. Her version was way cooler. Some is fact, some is fiction, and I'll let you work out what's what. 

Cats & Robots

Tue, 08/23/2011 - 15:30 by Ananth in response to naming the kitten

Cricket is the most appropriate name, but I think Space Race is still my favorite. Detective Goku Mustang is a close second. In order of appearance: Yuko, Lela, me, Evan, KC Green, Rich, L and Yuko. 

Bouldering!

Thu, 08/18/2011 - 18:07 by Ananth in response to save yourself

We started climbing a few months ago with our friend L! We go to a gym that mostly specializes in indoor bouldering (although they have some belaying walls). The way it works is that there are molded plastic holds affixed to the wall, and the holds are all marked with different colors - each color represents a route, and each route is marked with a difficulty level. Anyway, there's been a kid's camp there for a couple of weeks, which is adorable - but they don't give a damn about safety!
