2014 Holiday Megapost

Sat 12/27/2014

I have fallen a bit behind on my blogging duties because of the end of the semester and the holidays. In an effort to catch up, I'm going to do one megapost with links to a bunch of different things... here goes!

  1. After a few years of disorganization, I finally got the eBook versions of Phase 7 and Transition back online, using Gumroad. I also added the eBook for Basewood which is the first time it has been publicly available outside of the Basewood Kickstarter campaign. These are all high-quality DRM-free PDF files, so if you are into eBooks, go nuts! It's on my to-do list to set up some more eBooks in the new year, so keep an eye here for more news about that.
  2. In a similar vein, Basewood is now available through Comixology. As most of you probably know, I'm very proud of the physical hardback version of Basewood but in these changing times, I'm trying to remain open-minded about all the different ways that readers are currently enjoying comics. If the Comixology App is your cup of tea, then you can now check out Basewood on there.
  3. A few weeks ago I did an interview with Andrea and Aaron over at the Comics Therapy podcast. They asked me some of the smartest, most well-researched interview questions I've ever heard, which was great. We talked not only about Basewood, but also about my upcoming webcomic Isle of Elsi, and about my jobs teaching at both The Center for Cartoon Studies and the California College of Arts. I come on at about the 51-minute mark, if you'd like to give it a listen!
  4. Since Claire and I work from home, and since we're staying put this holiday season, we decided to get out of town for a few days, so that we would both actually take a break. Our first stop was Rancho Obi-Wan, which is the single largest collection of Star Wars stuff on the planet. We were treated to a four-hour tour by the man responsible for the collection, Star Wars fan #1, Steve Sansweet. I uploaded a bunch of photos from the tour to a Flickr album, and so did Claire. It was an incredible experience!
  5. The next day we continued up Route 101 to the Redwood National Forest (AKA The Forest Moon of Endor) which was literally a breath of fresh air. It felt good to get up into the woods and to finally see these massive trees!

Phew! Okay, I think that's it... I'll post at least once more on here before the end of the year, as I'm planning on drawing my 24-Hour comic for this year in one of the remaining five days of 2014. Then it's on to 2015!

My Fourteenth 24-Hour Comic
