You guys I want space adventures. ): Born in the wrong century, my heart was built for space.
Our pals L & Darryl started a blog called Comix Cube with a few of their friends - check it out! This post is about work ethic and motivation, broadly within art and more specifically within comics. L draws on some interesting influences in that aspect of her work.
Hourly comics! We did this last year too, and in 2009 as well. February 1st is a magical day when cartoonists from all over the internet do comics, often about making comics. You know what I want to read? Hourly comics by astronauts. Astronaut diary comics. I think maybe next year on February 1st we'll plan to do something crazy (I'll probably eat those words in a year).
Following John can sometimes end like this! There was another time he took a snow pile in a single stride and I tried to climb it and almost face-planted. Dangerous living!
We have a small announcement tomorrow - well, it's not technically ours but we're involved and anyway you'll see. You can check Twitter or Tumblr - we'll also post a follow-up on Thursday.
Oh! Orders have been sent out - you should have received some sort of tracking information. We got a little held up with all of this January snow!
We got a new humidifier and it's totally a penguin that barfs mist. It's meant to be for kids (there's a whole line of different animals), but this is also a well-priced ultrasonic humidifier, which means a minimum of cleaning and noise. I guess I accidentally turned this into a commercial, but anyway - I recommend it if you need one. Moving on!
What does it mean? Gotta be honest - at first I thought, in the way that sponsors get stadiums named after them, that there was maybe a town sponsored by Dairy Queen that they named after their new offering, the Cheesequake™. Not the case, at all. Cheesequake, NJ is a real place! Maybe some of you are from there. The part we drove through was lovely. It didn't live up to the wonder of its name, but maybe that's okay. I don't know if anything could.
Yuko has mentioned the sweet potato plant in comics past - we left for one weekend and we came back it had exploded! Yuko was very pleased. I'm waiting for it to outgrow its pot and choke us in our sleep. You'll see.
Rook came with us to visit Yuko's parents at the end of 2010. They also have two cats - Mika and Gonta - and this was the first time all three cats met in an event I like to call the CROSSOVER!! I've got a few scripts about the CROSSOVER!! lying around and I'm sure they'll crop up every once in a while over the next few weeks or months. This one's about Mika and Rook and how well they got along. Like two peas in a pod! If one pea was very, very angry.
Littered in coffee grounds! They've got to be. One day years from now they'll start scraping them off and add a new item to the menu. Just for you, John.
If the horse represents my feelings!! My family did Christmas but we weren't super into it and I don't understand your strange customs!! Whatever Christmas is over!
