Sorry I've been posting so infrequently. Stuff keeps happening. Like, I'm going to be at the Stumptown Comics Fest in Portland this weekend! I'll be at the Couscous Collective table, selling them Narbonic books (including the still-reasonably-new Volume Six) and Skin Horse minicomics, so stop by if you're in the area.
Also, this past week I went to Tokyo. It was my first trip to Japan. Andrew and I are working with the Ghibli Museum on a Mary Blair museum show, and we had to courier the art across the Pacific. (Usually my userpic is some form of Mary Blair art, or else Kinnikuman, but this time it's from Hiroshi Masumura's Atagoul, my new manga obsession. Thanks, used manga store in Akihabara!) On Monday we got to visit the Ghibli Museum and then Studio Ghibli itself.
Studio Ghibli. I swear. It feels like I dreamed the whole thing, but I'm pretty sure it was real, because how else did I get this photo of us with Hayao Miyazaki?
