In just two days, Ohio State's 2010 Festival of Cartoon Art begins! The festival's already sold out, but I thought I'd mention it anyway. I'll be speaking there on Saturday about American Born Chinese. There are going to be many, many awesome aspiring and professional cartoonists there, including Art Spiegelman, James Sturm, and Matt Groening!
Details and schedule here.

Derek Kirk Kim has put some pages from The Eternal Smile up for sale. They look gorgeous in the book, but the originals are absolutely breath-taking. Something about watercolor doesn't scan quite right, so you really have to see these in person to get the full effect. They're pure 100% awesomeness.
CHECK 'EM OUT HERE!

I got these t-shirts made right before Comic-Con this year, but a friend of mine has finally helped me put them up on the web for sale.
The shirt was designed by my brother-in-law and features the Monkey King as he appears in American Born Chinese.
Available in all adult sizes for $18.50 each, shipping included!
GET ONE TODAY!

This past weekend, Angry Asian Man asked me to do a guest post over at his blog while he was on vacation. I wrote about the racially-insensitive-but-still-slightly-awesome Fu Chang, a Chinese-American funnybook detective from the Golden Age of comics.
If you're interested in reading the Fu Chang stories as they were originally published in Pep Comics, download them for free over at the Digital Comic Museum. You'll need to set up a login for yourself, but isn't a few minutes of inconvenience worth the hundreds of free, public domain comic book downloads? (Uh... Yes. In case you were wondering, the answer is yes.)
