This post only exists because I feel like I should have a new post. I’ve been drawing a lot of comics and illustrations for different anthologies and I don’t really have anything to put up here that’s worth anything really. So, I turned to my private notebooks for stuff. I guess they aren’t too private.
A recounting of working on my book, The Hypo.
This comic was drawn on a plane as I was flying to San Francisco to table at APE. I was supposed to pick up some contributer copies of MOME #22 from Eric Reynolds, and I had never met him before. Only talked to him through e-mails while submitting comics to the anthology. This was how I imagined the meeting going. It should be noted that it didn’t go like this. Eric is actually a swell guy.
Here’s another comic that sums up a trip I took to Minneapolis last spring.

My goal set last new year’s eve was to finish The Hypo by february 2012. Somehow I managed to finish it early. Well, I’m getting ready to ship the artwork to Fantagraphics, but first off, I wanted the Blammo publishers to get a quick look at it. So, Dan Stafford at Kilgore books got some fat tires and I walked over to the shop on a freezing, snowy night, with the my book under my arms. It was a memorable night for me.
Here’s my neighborhood in Denver, Colorado.

Their reaction at the shop was awesome. Made me feel warm on a freezing night.
