M.Carter will take over the art reigns for Abandon on October 31, 2006. She's a fellow member of UpDown Studio. M.Carter is extremely talented and I am very lucky to have her. I am going to concentrate on writing and all the other details.
We'll both be at Wizard Texas, November 10-12, 2006, and are going to try to have a sampler minicomic ready.

Once again, I've posted a new PC Weenies sketch on eBay. This time, I'm offering the original sketch used to create PC Weenies #915.
Hopefully it will find a good home!

The webcomic Onezumi.com has added an Oekaki drawing area onto its forum site Harknell.com. The Oekaki board is a Japanese created Java program that acts much like a scaled down Photoshop/Painter program and allows very advanced pictures to be created through your web browser--if you have Java installed on your computer there are no installs or other downloads necessary for it to work.The Oekaki board is open to all forum members to use to create and post artwork for others to view and comment upon.

The first episode of 'Today: The Podcast' is now available. My son, Christian, co-hosts but the little guy mainly steals the show. This episode I go over how I drew the first strip back to 'Today' after returning from a month long vacation. As well as how the idea for the strip originated.

William G is out of town for a few weeks, and he put out a call for some guest strips for his comic, Bang Barstal. I drew today's guest strip. I don't get to write humor that often, but I had a lot of fun with this tribute.

You know, regardless of how much I've ribbed Scott Kurtz in the past, I still read PVP religiously. It's a compulsion. And no matter what people think of Scott, it's fairly universal that most folks like PVP. Yeah, me too.
Now, I've posted on assorted forums about Scott copying and pasting. I'm not the only one. However, it seems Scott has heard the masses, and is actively trying to improve PVP's art. I say, good for him!

Hello web denizens,
Ravencon has come and gone already. The turn out was fantastic, with more than 300 people showing up for this small, new convention. The panels were fun and I got to meet some great people there. My dealers table was right next to Tom Kidd, and we even got a chance to talk about art. Ravencon 2007 will be April 27-29th, 2007.
Now its time to get ready for Balticon. I will be a guest and exhibiting my work at the artshow . In case you havent heard, Neil Gaiman is the guest of honor and I am very excited about that. I will post my schedule on my live journal as soon as it becomes available and chances are you can find me at the Ravencon table.

NEW**Interview with Jeff Smith, creator of Bone.
- Interview with Dan Clowes, creator of Eightball.
- Two videos from Kris Straub on drawing Starslip Crisis: short one and long one.
- Evan Dorkin's pilot for the never made cartoon series Welcome to Eltingville. This gets fandom so right it's funny and uncomfortable to watch!
- Alison Bechdel working on a graphic novel. Bechdel uses a digital camera on herself to create references for what she draws. Interesting technique. (There's a link to a better version of the video in the comments)
- Adam Hughes sketching at a convention.
- Raina Telegemeier, creator of Smile, is going to be huge this year when her graphic novel adaptation of the young-adult prose novel The Babysitter’s Club comes out. You can catch an interview with her from March here.
- A documentary on Chris Ware from last year. (There are features on other comic artists here but they may all be in french - not sure. Okay at least the one with Art Spiegelman is in english.) More recently Tom Spurgeon caught this Chicago tv station's report on Chris Ware. (The link to the video is on that page - there's a 10 second commercial on the video before the report starts)
- And nothing to do with comics is the trailer for PAC MAN: The Movie. Very funny.
