I WENT BACK TO HIGH SCHOOL
Last week I gave an assembly at Concord Academy, where I went to high school. I feel lucky to have gone there– it’s a creative, nurturing place… SO nurturing that on my very first day of school back in 1983, when I slipped down a wall and tripped the fire alarm and the entire school had to evacuate, they didn’t decide to make it my last day. It felt great to go back and cause less of a disturbance.
I SPOKE TO MR. MEDIA
Mr. Media interviews all types in the entertainment world, and we had a good time chatting. Since I am feeling technologically fancy-pantsed, I am going to post the link right here on this very blog.
I GOT NOMINATED FOR AN AWARD
Every Memorial Day, a swarm of cartoonists congregate for The National Cartoonist’s Society’s Reuben Awards weekend, where we laugh and catch up and spoil perfectly good cocktail napkins with our scribbles. In addition to the big award for Cartoonist of the Year, there are division awards for the various different cartooning disciplines– greeting cards, comic books, illustration, etc. So I am one of three nominees, along with the talented creators of F-Minus and Loose Parts, for the Best Newspaper Comic Panel award. Exciting!!
DO THIS TODAY, (BUT ONLY IF YOU LIVE IN SEATTLE)
You have to take the survey by April 5th, and you have to live in the Seattle area. You can rate the comics they presently carry as well as suggest additions. I’m not in the Seattle Times, so if you want to suggest Rhymes With Orange I won’t stop you.
THE PANEL IN CAMBRIDGE, WEDNESDAY APRIL 21st
YOU HAVE MY PERMISSION TO PROWL MY STUDIO
Remember how I go on and on about my former intern Juana Medina? We finally put up the 360 degree studio tour project she did for the website. First check out the little animation, then take a gander at the tour. Neat, huh?
My cat’s lackadaisical grooming habits came back to haunt him. When he went to the vet for his annual check up, his annual mat-clipping session turned into a full body shave. The Lorax has started sending him love notes.
So, that’s today’s newsletter! Thanks for reading!
