Ah, the interwebs...
Hey everyone on the interwebs! If you were at SPX last weekend, thanks for coming down and supporting us nerds. Joe, Liz and I had taken a year off, and we were glad to be back (SPX was my very first comics convention, back in 2002). If you weren't at SPX, thanks for reading this blog!
I apologize for the steady decline in blog postings; this has been a busy year (don't even try and count the number other times I've typed that phrase...). It's not that I haven't had anything to post, I just haven't made the time to post it. (shame,shame)
I know my post last weekend was brief, so here's a little bit more on what's going down in the land of Maris:
-I know I mentioned this before, but "Yes, Let's" is a super-cool kid's book that I did with Galen Longstreth for Tugboat Press. It is full color! Read it to a kid (or to yourself) in the grass! Here's a peak:
a little peak inside:
-I'm still hard at work on Primates, the graphic novel I'm illustrating for First Seconds Books (written by Jim Ottaviani!); I'll hopefully be posting some sneak peaks soon.
-I have a comic in the anthology "Make: Comics About an Intimate Act", edited by Robyn Chapman. There's a bunch of swell people in this great little collection about my favorite subject...POOP.
-Joe and I moved...1 mile down the road! We're still in Somerville, making this the longest we've lived in the same location. Also, we now live below the talented Liz Prince. OMG comics house. We drew one last night, but we can't really take credit...
-Biggs is obviously still being AWESOME:
-I pretty much cut off all my hair, so get ready for me to look like even more of a boy in my auto-bio strips...
So, yeh. I'm sure there's more. But that's it for now. Joe and I are just barely getting settled into our new place, but once we're set up, I'm planning on drawing comics just for the fun of it again (I haven't drawn a personal comic all summer long!) And the logical conclusion would be to post these comics to this blog (though I don't always do the logical thing.) Just sayin'.
