June 9th, 2005 - thursday

This weekend is the MoCCA Art Festival in NY. I'll be there along with Ryan, Vera, Hope, Mal, Becky, Matthew, Andy, Raina, Dave, Amy, Johane, and Kean. Drop by and say hello!

Anyone in New York looking for some good, cheap furniture? Since Amy will be moving back with me to Pasadena (we're engaged!), she has to get rid of some of her stuff. If you're interested, email me. So here's what we've got:

Full size mattress in excellent condition $90
Full length wooden standing mirror like new - $30
White 5-tier bookshelf - $10
Heavy wooden 2-tier bookshelf - $10
Heavy wooden 3 tier bookshelf - $20
Sturdy wooden breakfast table (with fold-out flaps)+ 3 ironwork chairs - $75
Metal frame futon plus mattress w/ cover - $150

Newsarama has an interview with me about FLIGHT's move to Ballantine Books. Random House will be making an official press release soon. Also, it looks like Amy and I were nominated for a bunch of Web Cartoonists' Choice Awards, cementing our incredibly geeky romance.

By the way, thank you to the wonderful people who sent me recommendations for eateries in and around the Brooklyn area. You guys are super sweet. I'll be sure to check out some of these places...

New York...

I'm loving New York. I feel really comfortable here, despite the hustle and bustle. The manic pace isn't quite for me, but the people here really make this a place I'll have to consider moving to... thanks New York!

And lastly, I want to apologize to people sending me emails who aren't getting prompt replies. My webmail is pretty sluggish and I have very little time to check my mail between meetings, work, and subway commutes. Try to keep messages short and I'll see what I can do to speed up my answering process...

Phew. I just got the wireless network set up here in New York, so I'm back online! The last week has been pretty hectic, and here's the rundown on what's been going on:

This past weekend I attended the Toronto Comic Arts Festival. Ryan, Vera, Hope, Mal, Becky, Vasilis, Corey, Johane, Kean, Derek, Matthew, Andy, Raina, Dave, Amy and I were there along with a whole host of other cartoonists I respect and admire. A highlight for me was getting to hang out with Jeff Smith while putting up Flight and Bone posters around the Scholastic tent. Heheh. Chris Butcher, Peter Birkenoe, and the crew at The Beguiling did an amazing job of putting together the show. I've never seen so many top-notch cartoonists gathered together in such a comfortable, laid back event. I had a really great time, and it's hard not to when you're surrounded by so many cool and wonderful people. I'll have pictures from the event up here soon. In the meantime, here are links to some other reports by: Hope, Kean, Vera and Rich, Raina, and Ryan.
