Still here in COVID Land
Isolated But Not Alone
And So It Begins
I decided to keep this diary going as long as I can. It’s mainly for my family’s record, but I thought I’d post it as long as it makes sense (and my health allows). Yesterday was the first full day of COVID-19 in the house–and it’s catching! Or is it??
It’s in the House
TODAS LAS CANCIONES TRISTES is out in Spain!
It’s official: All the Sad Songs is out in Spanish from the wonderful Libros Walden as TODAS LAS CANCIONES TRISTES!!
They’ve even created a playlist on Spotify especially for the book–it’s chronological and yet as moody as the cover!
So excited for new readers to discover this book! Thanks to Manuel and to all in Spain for making this happen! I am so happy it is making its way around the world!
Artist Talk In Poughkeepsie Saturday October 9th!
On Saturday I will be giving an artist talk IN PERSON at the Boardman Library in Poughkeepsie, NY about telling life stories in comics!
My inner 10 year old is doing backflips because I used to stare at this picture and imagine the lives of my cartooning heroes Wendy and Richard Pini, creators and authors of the Elfquest series, and wonder from my California home, where the heck Poughkeepsie was, and how you even pronounced it, and if there was a way I could possibly run away to live with them, or magically jump into the picture. Now I live 20 miles south of them and although my life doesn’t have elves in it, I have in a sense magically entered that picture through drawing my life in comic form–but wait! I’m spoiling my talk!
Register here and come hear me talk all about that portal between life and drawing and writing and living. It will be masked, social distanced, but it will be personal! Come on over!
