New Journal Debut
Yup. Tape, tape and more tape on the cover. I can't get enough of it. :)
The new journal is small and fits in my purse. I wanted something small that I could take with me and easily work on while standing in line at Comic Con, on the airplane, etc... I'm doing something different with this book. I hope that you enjoy taking the journey with me as I show you the pages...
Home for a couple of days. Literally. Leaving early (think butt crack of dawn) on Wednesday for Boston. I'll be there for two weeks. Looking forward to seeing family and friends. I am teaching both weekends (Fri and Saturdays. Sundays I'll be hanging with the family as it's the only day that everyone seems to have off at the same time). There is room in all of my classes. You can go here for more info. Catch them while you can as they won't be repeated in the MA/New England area any time soon. I have no plans to offer my in person classes as online classes either. I want to keep them separate. :)
Letters of Note. Make sure you look at the letter from John K. Talk about amazing. John Kricfalusi is funny as hell and also the nicest guy. We ran into him at the local used bookstore last year after attending Comic Con. I went up to him and told him how much we loved his panel. He was very gracious and kind.
I remember all of the 'fan' letters that I wrote when I was a teen. I received the best response ever from my favorite musician. It was a Christmas present with a t-shirt, Christmas card and more. To say I was bouncing off of the wall when I opened it up was an understatement. I don't understand why more artists aren't encouraging to others, especially emerging artists. I didn't end up a drummer, but I did follow in his footsteps, to some degree. I became an instructor (inspired by my favorite musician, who also toured the world offering drum clinics, several of which I traveled to attend in MA, NY and even Halifax, Nova Scotia). See how things can click and inspire others? Reach out. Don't hold back. Nurture and support those who reach out to you. It's a good thing, trust me. Thanks, Bobby.
Cool looking zine!
