It's the full visual lecture on a nice big screen. Best of all, it's free and open to the public.

See you there!

Hi All. Coming out of hibernation for a minute to let you know about the return of my Los Angeles 2-Day Workshop this February. Details at the link. 

Might be a pretty awesome (or supremely weird) Xmas gift, depending on the recipient.

Still in hibernation while I work on the graphic novel (about 300 pages so far but I've got a ways to go). Will stumble out, blinking in the sunlight later next year, but in the meantime, expect only sporadic appearances here (and on Twitter).

Might show off a bit more of the GN soon, though. Mark Siegel offered a couple of panels at TCJ a few months back ( http://www.tcj.com/mark-siegel-part-three ) but I've really loved working on this book, so I wouldn't mind sharing a bit more. 

Have a great holiday season!

Coming out of hibernation today to fly to Northfield, Minnesota for this cool-looking conference on visual communication:

...in a cool town, apparently:

...then back to drawing, drawing, drawing 'til the book is done!

Here's a real stunner. A collaborative wedding announcement with some very snazzy design features and lovely illustrations:

Dispatch from Hibernation

This was a really nice surprise on the night before my birthday; Tom Spurgeon offering some thoughts on my '80s series Zot!.

Putting together the Zot! collection helped me come to grips with the limitations of my early work. For years, I couldn't look at those issues; all I saw were the mistakes. Nowadays, positive words like Tom's just make me feel good in a relaxing, uncomplicated way.

I'm going to be pretty quiet this year while I work on the graphic novel. It's a very big book that I'm trying hard to get right, and just drawing, drawing, drawing seems like the best path to accomplishing that now.

Eventually, I'll start sharing some of it, but right now I'm just getting up every day and working; including tomorrow. As my loving-but-frustrated family can tell you, simply drawing comics every day is the best present anyone could get me.

Good Morning, Montreal!

(...and anyone willing to travel to Montreal)

Hope you can join me for my two-day workshop next month. Sixteen hours of everything I can teach you through lectures and hands-on exercises. An intense look at the art of telling stories visually.

(And if you’re coming in from out of town, be sure to swing by the legendary Safari Pearl, our Moscow hosts during our 50 State Tour in 2007. I don’t have a formal signing this trip, but I plan to swing by and say hi while in town.)

This is the first I've seen of these. Maybe they've been circulating for years, but OMG, Lookit this guy.

Did Martin Van Buren ever do a photo shoot like this? I'm thinking no.
