The Adventure begins...

I'm heading out the door, compass pointed north along I-29. Destination, the Canadian border and the International Peace Garden. There one will find the International Music Camp who has broadened its horizons to include painting, sculpting, drawing, dance, theater, writing, and, for the past 16 years, cartooning. Next week the middle school and high school kids who will occupy the cartooning class will be introduced to a new teacher... ME!
The camp director assures me that they have wi-fi so the iPhone should be working just fine. As the Peace Garden is located in both the US and Canada, their wi-fi is probably in metric or French or something. Argh!

Back next weekend with stories to tell.

And yes, my neighbors are feeding and caring for Gus while I'm away. Lucky cat...

Infestation at the 2012 Comic-Con

It took a while, but the UNDERCOVER COCKROACH comic book is now printed and made its debut at the 2012 Comic-Con International last weekend. No, I didn't go this year. Shea Butler took a stack of the comic books with her to San Diego and made the rounds. She sent me my copies along with a new t-shirt and one of the super-size bags from the Con. She's so sweet. :-)
Now we'll see if the comic leads to an animated series or a series of animated shorts.
Thanks Shea and Cheryl for the opportunity to create this book. It's been a ton of fun!
