One workshop down... One to go!

Sat 7/23/2011

Yikes! It's been almost two weeks since I've written a post for this blog. My life feels like it's going in fast forward right now. The days are ticking off too quickly and time feels like it's slipping away. I guess it's because I have been so busy this summer.

One of the best parts about teaching at CCS as my "day job" is that I get the summers off, to do my own work. The only downside to this is that I'm usually so busy during the school year that my side projects pile up until my summer is just as busy as the school year! Oh well, I'm working on very cool, satisfying projects, so I shouldn't complain.

Yesterday the first CCS Summer Workshop wrapped up. It was a real blast teaching comics to a whole new group of people and on Thursday they all brought their "A" game and made a really cool comic, the cover of which you can see above (mostly drawn by the workshop headmaster, Jon Chad). Aaron even came out for a few days, so it was super fun.

I've got the weekend to catch up on stuff and then Claire and I are heading out to Seattle for a week, to attend a wedding and hang out with my family. I am excited to see my family and ecstatic about finally getting to meet Wicket but I think the thing I am looking forward to most is the 70 degree weather and complete lack of humidity.

I'll spare you my annual rant about how much I hate east coast summers... Instead, I'll just say that I am very glad this is the LAST summer I'll have to endure with this giant beard on my face!

The day after we get back to Vermont I dive into another 10 days of workshops, so it may be another two weeks before another post on here, but I queued up a mid-week post for my newly redesigned illustration blog so you can all check that out if you're itching for some Alec-nonsense to read. Stay cool this summer, everyone!
