Home Again

Wednesday, May 19th, 2010

I have been lazy since I got home and have not uploaded any TCAF pictures or scanned any comics. Maybe tonight!

Meanwhile other people have been drawing, drawing Page 100’s!
Mark Campos has done another page! This time it is Red Harvest by Dashiell Hammett
and David Marmota has drawn Island of Adventure by Enid Blyton

Gone Fishing

Thursday, May 13th, 2010

I am away having a bit of a post-TCAF vacation, visiting my family in Ontario. The show was a great time with a really upbeat vibe. I chatted with so many nice customers and fellow exhibitors. And then there were parties, you know, every night. The closing one on Sunday especially warmed my heart, as I looked around the room and realized I knew quite a lot of people in some capacity or other. And I knew them from many different eras of my comics life. It reminded me why it is good for my soul to get out to the shows!

Also I have gotten two new Page 100 Project submissions!
Josh Bauman does Haruki Murakami’s Wild Sheep Chase
Dorian Lafferee does Hunter S Thompson’s Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

Page 100 Project List

So ages ago, Dave Howard suggested to me that it might be an interesting idea for cartoonists to try adapting a part of a novel they liked. And then recently when JD Sallinger died, that notion came back to me, and then I thought oh it might be interesting to attempt to do a comic of some portion of one of his books. As I sat on the couch staring at the shelves of books, I thought it might be fun to try it with different books. Maybe just a page. Maybe the SAME PAGE from each book. Say, page 100. And thus…


Feel welcome to join in. It’s easy: Just pick a book, turn to page 100, and adapt it as a comic. Let me know if you do one:

The Page 100 Project

Hey neat, someone else attempted a Page 100: The Moon is a Harsh Mistress from Jason Rainey. I will have to keep a list of these things somewhere. I actually started working on another one the other day.

Another Page 100

I did another Page 100 Project page, from Nicholson Baker’s “The Fermata” You can see it over here until I get a proper venue set up for these.

Gettin’ Vernal with it

Saturday, March 20th, 2010

I burned a cd of a music mix I had been fiddling with the past couple of weeks this morning. I’m pretty happy with it, nice and peppy. I called it “Gimme Springtime” completely forgetting that today is the equinox! So it was a most appropriate day to drop it. Happy spring everyone!

Oh also, I did a first run at the Page 100 Project, which you can read over here for now.

Also, I took a fairly flawed panorama of the view from the school, across the road from my house.
