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!):
More kitten comics! We kept her in quarantine until we could get her to the vet for tests and shots, and this was the scene that greeted us every morning. She's a little hyperactive! Except for right now, she's curled up on the end of the couch. Quiet cat is my favorite cat.
The most consistent question in last time's comments was about her name. She does have one, but I think it'll be more fun to tell you guys via a strip. Sorry to be a tease!
This is the new image from the back of the business card we're handing out at shows. Pretty adorable! Yuko is a mastermind.
We're back from SPX! Thank you to everyone who came out to support us - or just to say hi! The books went like hotcakes and it's all thanks to you guys and gals, so - THANK YOU!! You really made our weekend. One Adam WarRock also made my weekend, but more about that soon!
Sometimes Evan is like a laser, straight and true, and this was one of those times. And to be fair, he had a really good argument for being a cat, which he'll perhaps elaborate on in the comments if you really want to know. If you're coming to SPX, tell us what animal you would be!
Speaking of SPX, we'll be at booth F10 - see the handy map below,
and we will have these babies:
It's a sauna down there, and showering becomes a moot point once you're down on the platform. New York has an extensive subway system, which is great, but it's also old, so it wasn't constructed with maximum ventilation in mind. It's usually worth it to wait till you come home to shower, but that's just me.
We have two copies of our book!! Here they are,
He was really excited about chi! Just something I overheard on the subway on the way back from an excursion into the city. Public transit is good for listening in on other peoples' conversations, often whether you want to or not. But I usually want to - sometimes I get a good quote for dialogue or some insight into a group of people (like Wall St).
I should mention that Yuko drew this comic despite being sick - thank you! There are beads of sweat in this ink!! A testament to her grit and dedication.
Yuko wore a skirt the first day of SPX, which as we have previously established is mighty unusual! It was mega cute, though - despite all of the exclamations, she got plenty of compliments. And despite that huge grin she drew me with in the first panel, it wasn't my idea for her to wear it! Totally self-motivated. She also got a new haircut which she decided she hates but really it is pretty cute.
