Here are two holiday album covers I really like...
The soundtrack to the original Sesame Street Christmas special. It's one of my most favorites because it is both funny and also sad as heck (like all the best holiday specials!) You can Download the album here!.
I used to love the Chipmunks as a kid. And still love their old Christmas albums (especially the jazzy orchestrations) and the artwork style for the original Alvin show is still charming enough to make me ignore the new CGI Chipmunks. This image was the inspiration for the art I did for the Harry and the Potters Christmas Album

I just uploaded a new Holiday Mix CD to share with friends and family!
It includes nerdy stuff like a song from the Doctor Who Christmas special and classic Sesame Street.
You can also download my previous two holiday mix cd's in the Holiday Mix Archive.
I can't get enough Christmas music, so if you've got your mixes definitely send them my way!

"SLG Publishing is having an across-the-line, no coupon necessary, 40% off everything sale for the next week or so. A tough economy and some financial curve balls have made the sale necessary in an attempt to put some coins in the coffer, wind in the sails, eggs in the basket, etc, etc, whatever the hell. SLG, as most of you know, has more or less been my publishing home for the past 20 years or so, so I'm of course hoping for the best for them during these times of hardship."

Anyone interested in a bound volume of a complete year of Nickelodeon Magazine for your library? There may be a few left. No promises though!

I posted some photos from this weekend's King Con in Brooklyn. This was NYC's newest indie comic show, and for a first-year con, it seemed like a success! It was held at the Brooklyn Lyceum, which is sort of like a rundown cathedral that sells muffins and puts on zine fests. The unisex bathrooms added to the punk rock vibe (but could become an issue if this show grows).

I'll be at the King Con in Brooklyn tomorrow speaking on a panel with Raina, Sara Varon and Matt Loux.
It starts at 11AM which is when I'm usually still asleep. So this should be interesting!

RE: My last post.
Anyone know how we can contact the band The Killers without going through their record label?

Anyone know how to legally acquire the rights to a song to use in a youtube video?
I noticed thats some videos have little adds for itunes or Amazon. But I can't figure out how to set that up.
