Back to Vermont!

Mon 10/19/2015

I'm packing my newly-redesigned bag and hopping on a red-eye tonight to head back to The Center for Cartoon Studies for another 10 days of teaching in Vermont. Last time I was there I bought one of their Joe Lambert-designed pencil cases, which Claire hand-embroidered for me, so it won't get confused with any other similar pencil cases that are floating around.

As Claire heads into her third trimester her belly keeps getting bigger and increasingly, I feel like I'm running out of time. I'm working frantically to try and get Isle of Elsi up and running by January 1st and I'm also trying to finish off a few top-secret side projects, as well as put Phase 7 #021 to bed. We'll see if I can get it all done before the baby arrives! I'm also pretty busy teaching three classes for CCS and CCA...

In other news, the new poster for Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens was released yesterday. It should go without saying that I am very excited about that movie. I'm keeping a close watch on my local movie theatre's advance ticket sales page, and the core of my Star Wars crew has agreed to come see the movie with me out here in Santa Fe. The original plan was to head out to Madison, Wisconsin, but Claire's due date is about two weeks after the release day, so we can't travel. I have the best friends in the entire universe.

Anyway, it feels like there is a lot going on right now! The good news is that I've cleared my schedule for the first few months of the new year, so when that baby does come, I can just spend time with her, and help Claire recover from her ordeal. It'll be my reward for all this hard work. Onwards!
