This coming Saturday I will be drawing at Jim Hanley's with a bunch of really amazing cartoonists for kids. I'm going to be there earlier in the day with Sara Varon, and Geoffrey Hayes. The event promises to be an extravaganza of comics, cookies, and creativity... obviously I am going for the cookies, everything else is bonus. I'm really excited, if you are in the NY area and have children, please stop by!
Here's the lineup:
10-12: Sara Varon , Geoffrey Hayes, and me
12-2: Misako Rocks!, Kevin Pyle, and Fred Van Lente
2-4: Dave Roman, Raina Telgemeier, Frank Cammuso, and Jay Lynch
4-6: George O'Connor, and Nick Bertozzi
I will also be up in the Bronx this Wednesday, in a program between the New York Comic Con, and the New York Public Library. It's a two hour program for children, the first hour I will be discussing my work, and how I write, and the second hour the kids will be making their own comics. So if you're a patron of the Westchester Square Library, I will see you there at 4.
I also just discovered that you can read part of my first book on google book search. Do they actually have somebody scan in all those drawings? I'm sorry, for whoever had to do that. That must have been a pain. I could have sent you jpegs.
Other than that, I'm just drawing the Unsinkable Walker Bean. It's going well, and has a new publisher. I'm now proudly working with Mark Seigel at First Second. So far it's a match made in heaven. I'm very excited to have this project back on the font burner.
