Wow, so I never expected that this blog would see so much traffic...ever. Thanks to everyone who retweeted, voted up, and linked to the post on cartoonists' self-portraits. Now I'm going to squander any goodwill that may have earned me by plugging a project of my own.
I'm currently collecting an anthological, anecdotal comic book guide to San Francisco's Mission District. The book will contain 20 tales of life in the Mission with art by 20 Bay Area artists (and in some cases, the artist and the author might be one and the same). If you are interested in contributing, head over to Skoda Man Press to learn more.
Also, a couple of non-self-promoting odds and ends:
- A few days ago, tech industry watchers TechCrunch interviewed husband and wife webcomickers Drew (of Toothpaste for Dinner and Married to the Sea) and Natalie Dee (of Natalie Dee and Married to the Sea). It's an interesting read as it treats the webcomics as an art-focused startup.
- Periscope Studios, home to some of my favorite webcomickers, as well as a number of other talented comic artists, has just opened a spanking new Etsy store. Items have been selling fast; if you see something you like, pounce.
