Anthrocon and patron social
I’ll be in Pittsburgh PA July 1-3 for the Anthrocon convention. Look for me at table A23 in the dealers room where I’ll have all my books including “Hoofbeats,” the collection of strips from 2014 which makes its debut at the con. But that’s not all; ‘ll also have four “Doc Rat” titles, courtesy of Jenner.
Kevin & Kell is nominated
I’m delighted and deeply honored to announce that I’ve received my first National Cartoonists Society nomination, for “Kevin & Kell” in the division of Online Comics (Short Form). I’m one of three up for the award, which will be given at the annual Reubens Award banquet in Memphis on May 28. (These are the Oscars of the cartooning profession.) The other two nominees are Dave Kellett of “Sheldon” and Boulet of “BouletCorp,” so it’s obviously a highly competitive category. Another indication of the high standards involved: last year’s winner was Danielle Corsetto for “Girls with Slingshots.”
I just completed the contents of the second “Safe Havens” treasury, encompassing the years 1990 and 1991. Watch this space for when it will become available.
The Argus Sisters.
Inspired by the Schuyler sisters from the play “Hamilton,” it’s Samantha, Sophie and Shondra.
Mudslide, and Safe Havens: The Day Care Years, 1988-89
Over the years many of you have been requesting a collection of the strip’s first years, beginning with its debut in 1988. It’s now here, with additional commentary from me.
