It's been fun to write an arc with a bare minimum of dialogue. I'd planned to make a longer post about Yuko's process on these pages - no inks, this is all pencil! - but man, it's been a long day and this page turned out to be a little more complex than we thought. I really like that pull-out of the kitchen, though.
I've been saying we'd put the new t-shirts up this week, but unfortunately our work ran away with us and we just don't have it prepped. I hate to do this, but they'll be up on Tuesday come hell or high water. Sorry about that!
You guyssss we were at Big Apple Comic Con this past weekend which is largely a superhero show, and so we got to talking about superhero comics. The result was 3 pages of Batmen in their off-hours, when they're just kicking back and taking a break from being the Batmen we all know and love.
We also sat next to Arthur Suydam, who is the artist on comics like Marvel Zombies, Army of Darkness and more. We only got to talk to him briefly, but he was really friendly and it was a pleasure speaking to him.
The dog is a Weimaraner, and Lela's the only one who can say it. According to Wikipedia, the color of its fur also led to the nickname, "The Grey Ghost", which I'm down with. Because it's easier to say than Murmur ner mur.
There's a fine line to walk when it comes to being a regular! From my personal experience if they know your name it's too much. But if they know what you order, that's perfect.
A couple of things to talk about!
First, we'll be at Big Apple Comic Con in NYC this coming weekend! Come by and see us, we'll have books, t-shirts and more.
This is about our drive up to Toronto for TCAF! With us in the car are Dave Roman and Raina Telgemeier! Dave and Raina are both cartoonists - Dave's newest book coming out is Astronaut Academy, and Raina is the cartoonist behind Smile, which you've undoubtedly seen gracing the shelves at book stores. I'm glad I finally have an excuse to write about them - they are two of the most welcoming people on the planet!
Some Tired Tuesday art, we're in catch-up mode today.
TCAF was wonderful! Thanks for coming by and saying hello! And Toronto is a lovely town, as always. We made new friends and saw some familiar faces, A+ weekend all around.
The Cat-mera charms and earrings all sold out! Unexpectedly quickly, again ... I am getting the feeling you guys like them or something. We're ordering more this week, so sorry about that! There are still some patches left, if those are of interest.
