Graphic Novel Day 
This Saturday 9/18/10, I'll be joining Terry Moore, Barbara Slate, and Esther Pearl Watson for the Houston Public Library's Graphic Novel Day in Houston, Texas. I'll be doing an hour-long workshop on making comics. I'll also be part of a panel discussion on graphic novels. Details here.

"Professor Waid, You Hippie Freak!" 
Mark Waid, the writer behind Irredeemable and many other awesome comics, just released a better-articulated version of an off-the-cuff keynote he made at the Harvey Awards. He talks about comics, creative products in general, and our new file-sharing culture.

I'm a worrier. It's something of a hobby. I read the latest numbers from the comics direct market or from traditional book publishing, and then I sit in my room and worry, worry, worry. Waid makes a good argument as to why I shouldn't do that.

Rise of the Graphic Novel 
Quick! Go back in time to April, 26 2010! Then get yourself over to the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco where Andy Hartzell, Lark Pien, Dash Shaw and I have an awesome discussion about comics, the future, and the awesomeness of comics in the future.

WHAT?! What do you mean your time machine's in the shop?!

Well, good thing two geeks working at PayPal invented YouTube.

Busy, Busy, Busy 
The academic school year's starting up and I'm trying to hit a couple of comics deadlines... those are my excuses for why I haven't posted lately.

Here are some sketches I did for a one-pager I'm working on. It will eventually be published in an as-yet-unannounced anthology.

What are you doing tomorrow (Friday 8/6/10) night? Come to SLG Publishing Headquarters in San Jose at 8pm! For those who aren't in the know, SLG Publishing puts out fabulous graphic novels like Street Angel and Skeleton Key. They've also put out a few graphic novels by me. They're featuring my original pages on the walls of their store for the month of August, and they're kicking off the whole thing with a little shindig tomorrow. There will be live music and comics!

Even if you can't come by tomorrow, drop by some time over the next 30 days to see my messy, dog-eared artwork being treated like museum pieces or something.
