Yikes. More updates.


I haven’t really been posting here at all, I’m sorry. The new website IS on its way, (we’re shooting for a Labor Day launch) and the daily comic WILL return as promptly as possible following my relocation, which will hopefully be by this coming Monday. But I feel like I’ve really deserted you guys here. I am really kind of bummed that I didn’t get to comic-journal my August, since that’s my favorite month (even though the weather has been very sub-par) but I guess that was my own decision. I’ve had a really nice August, in spite of a week of high stress and many weeks of low temperatures. I still love this month. I always will.

Today I shipped my things to my new home. The lady at the post office seemed excited for me, even though I didn’t come right out and say, “I’m moving!” although by the end, for the sake of small talk, I did make some comment about racing my packages out West. “What day are you leaving?” “Sunday.” “Oh, you’ll probably beat your things out there.” Well, who needs clothes, anyway?

So I get into Portland on Sunday night, and then I will have that week to get acclimated and maybe explore my new neighborhood and new city. By foot or by bike, because I’ll be without a car! Then on Friday the real work starts! I’ll be heading down to Humboldt County, California for a photo safari, getting reference shots for drawing the Redwoods and other typical Northern California majesties. And THEN, by Labor Day, I should be able to dive into the next phase of my graphic novel, the reason for this whole upheaval, Operation: Illustration! Okay, after this post, it shall never again be referred to as such. What a nerd.

Anyway, I feel like a person who exercises regularly but then takes a 3 week “break.” I feel gross from not drawing comics. So I’m looking forward to getting back into the pattern! And, if you couldn’t tell by all the exclamation points in this post, I’m excited to start my new adventure!

  1. It sounds like things are going really well for you, and I’m so happy for you! I check your blog obsessively, so I’m sure I’ll be able to keep up with your wonderful future adventures. =) Good luck duder, and have an amazing time! I totally miss you already. xxoo

  2. sounds like things will be tough with all of that drawing, and photo safaris! Early 2010 I should have a work trip to Portland, so pencil me in! (april-ish probably) Portland is on my short list of places I want to go to next, so I may end up there for fun too. I really want to snowboard at Mt. Hood :)

    good luck with these last couple of days of WI. you are missed!
