Another trip back East!

Sun 9/8/2013

On Monday I'm heading back to Vermont for a week, before traveling down to Washington D.C. for the Small Press Expo.

This Fall will be my sixth year teaching Professional Practices at the Center for Cartoon Studies and my second year teaching it remotely from Oakland using Google Plus. The CCS school year starts the week before SPX this year, so I thought I'd head up and teach my first class in person since I was already flying cross-country for the show.

While at SPX I will be co-teaching a comics workshop on the behalf of CCS, along with Josh Bayer who will be representing The Sequential Artists Workshop. That takes place on Saturday from 4:30-5:30pm in the White Flint Auditorium. It should be a lot of fun! I'll be tabling with Greg Means of Tugboat Press for the rest of the show at table N1-2. If anyone lives in the Washington D.C. area, please swing on by! SPX is always my favorite show, and this year is shaping up to be a big one.

The Basewood Kickstarter continues to exceed all of my expectations. Earlier this week I announced a "push goal" to fund a companion volume for Basewood that would include concept drawings, character designs and other cool extras. Oh, and also a ROCK OPERA version of Basewood!!!?!

"Songs From the Basewood" has been one of my big top-secret projects that I have been working on for years and years with my buddy Andy. As of this post, we're about $1,200 away from making that album a reality, with 20 days to go. Hopefully we'll get the chance to share this with everyone.

It'll probably be pretty quiet around here until I get back to Oakland. My goal is to not leave the state of California for the entire month of October.
