A couple of things. First off, happy birthday to Danielle Corsetto of Girls With Slingshots! I had the pleasure of sitting by her all this past
weekend at C2E2 in Chicago, so she definitely earned a nice birthday after having to put up with me.
Second, Scott Kurtz of PvP is releasing a new book, The Best of PvP. It's a
compilation of favorite strips from the comic's past thirteen years. Give it a look!.
So, C2E2 was my first con of 2011. It was wonderful, too. Aside from seeing many of my favorite cartoonists I met a lot of wonderful readers over the weekend. I really need to sit down and do a
full write-up but I'm in that post-good con "why did it have to end" depression. I will say, though, it was something else driving home through nowhere, Illinois, and spotting Becky and Frank of Tiny Kitten Teeth (an amazing and beautiful comic) and fellow cartoonist Jeremy Sorese stranded on the side of
the highway for an event Becky dubbed the "The C2E2 Tailgate Party." We'll have to do that again, especially since the stretch of I-55 South between exits 65 and 64 is so... lovely. I'll see if we
can find any guest speakers.
Also, Dawn Griffin from Webcomic Alliance was at C2E2 and getting cartoonists to do a large sketch to auction off. Said sketchcards are gonna be
auctioned off to raise money. Dunno when said auction will happen, but the sketchcard I drew on can be seen
at Webcomic Alliance. When I have more details, I'll post them.
And one last, rather selfish, bit - are you a Vanessa fan? This may interest you. I plan on either ordering the print run Friday.
Okay - off to mail orders and search through a few returns. See ya tomorrow! -R.
