I promise I'm not dead. I'm just working.
It's halfway through November, and the first issue of "The Godhead" is halfway inked. And I'm calling that as actually
halfway, and not that point where I am halfway ready to burn it
and throw that ash down a sewer drain.
Which is want to happen when things don't go your way while inking. That stuff's goddamn permanent. If I don't manage to pick up the pace, I'll probably just have the Xeric book and Godhead issue 1 out by TCAF (knock, knock) and CAKE in May and June, respectively.
Because Minnesota gets cold
in the winter, my printing season should officially be "over," but if the gods decide we're going to have November weather all season long like last year, printing will start on the Xeric book, Sea Change, in a month or two, as well as for Godhead #1, and the "Tiny Room" mini. I like to call the time between the first snowfall and the first 50 degree day in spring, "Cartooning Season," or "Drawing Season," and all the days warm enough to stand outside "Printing Season."
Hopefully, it'll be warm, and I'll print a lot, and draw a lot. Thank god for global warming, huh?
--> The Minnesota Center for Book Arts (MCBA) book festival
is this weekend, the 17! I won't be tabling, but I'll be visiting and probably dicking around with Amaya
at the Paper Tapir
table, whose wares you should come pick up! Come get earrings that are tiny, viable books. Yeah. THOSE.
--> Tom K. of the conquering Uncivilized Books
is hosting a Defenders
movie screening at the Trylon Microcinema
in good old Southie (that's south Minneapolis, my heart, my home). Half of the proceeds from the screening go to the Comic Book Legal Defense fund, and the other half goes to you paying to see whatever awful-wonderful movie Mr. K has chosen, in the most wonderful small film theatre in the cities. So, win-win-win. BE THERE
--> and SAVE THE 16TH-18th of AUGUST 2013 for something very cool. You can't ask why yet, but you'll wanna do it, TRUST ME.
