OK, it’s been so busy lately, and I just feel like I haven’t been able to give the blog the attention it’s used to, so I’m putting it on hiatus for a week or two.
Don’t worry, it’ll be back, and I’ll get it robust and regular again, but it’s the end of summer and I’m gonna take a break.
If you’d like to know when I’ll be back I suggest subscribing to it via Bloglines. That’s really the way to go as far as I’m concerned.
So… See ya in a few weeks…
Illustrations finished… Mark sleep now…
Two pretty good, one mediocre, one looks nice in spandex.
(If you canâ€™t tell Iâ€™m still about chest deep in illustration work. More laterâ€¦)
OK, I hate when bloggers explain why theyâ€™ve been away for a while. Itâ€™s a lot of blah blah blah and no one really cares anyway, so Iâ€™m just going to say this:
22 full color illustrations (one of which contains 18 caricatures) for a large national client. â€˜Nuff said.
Anyway, Iâ€™m gonna keep this short so I can keep working, but hereâ€™s some stuff that I wanna yap about…
- Iâ€™m in the August Good Housekeeping with one of my kid/lawyer cartoons.
- Iâ€™m also in the new Laughter is the Best Medicine book from Readerâ€™s Digest.
- Recently a few radio stations in the Chicago area have changed their formats from â€œwhat we think will get the most listeners in our target groupâ€ to â€œwhatever we wantâ€ (the second one is actually a stationâ€™s tag line) and Iâ€™m tuning in for an eclectic selection of just plain good music. Note to syndicates/newspapers: Donâ€™t worry about demographics. Give â€˜em funnier comics and they will come back.
- My new Free Daily Comic feature is a wild success. Tons of bloggers and sites are using the cartoon. A few recent faves:
Yet Another Comics Blog
OK, thatâ€™s it. Iâ€™ll try to get more in next week.
Out of all of the volumes on our bookshelves, my son picked this â€œDaddy photo bookâ€ out the other day for Mommy to read.
What can I say? The boyâ€™s got good taste!
