What I Did On My Summer Vacation, In Pictures/The Charming-Yet-Infrequent Newsletter

I hung out with my dog.

I cooked.  (It was supposed to be roasted cauliflower.)

I visited a farm, and was surprised to learn what farmers fear:

I bought this at the farm gift shop.  If you are going to buy poo, insist on quality.

I “enhanced” my friend’s phone.  I said, “What- this didn’t clearly look like a Basset Hound to you, even before I drew on it?”  She said, “No.”

I saw an exhibit of Katsushika Hokusai at The Museum of Fine Art in Boston. He’s best known for The Great Wave.

He depicted what I’ve always known to be true: Spirits will descend from heaven and lick your forehead.

Plus, there’s this print of a wild boar. Who doesn’t love a wild boar?  (If you don’t like wild boars, I prefer not knowing that about you.)

I love how he draws water.Photo Jul 27, 3 33 01 PM


I went to San Diego Comic Con for the first time and had a blast. A lot of people wore costumes.Photo Jul 11, 5 40 38 PM

I did a talk about how I became a cartoonist.  To a pink bunny.

I also received a cool award, hung out with friends and fellow cartoonist Paige Braddock, and felt very honored.

It was neat to see the original Star Trek costumes, and realize how low tech they were.  (Fleece and gold ribbon from a fabric shop.)

Low tech or not, it’s now some pretty pricey fleece.

I saw some cool art, heard great talks by the likes of Scott McCloud and Chip Kidd and bought some graphic novels.

My one critique is that grew tired of seeing so many big-breasted, teeny-waisted female characters drawn by men. I went back to my hotel to rest my eyes, but guyness greeted me everywhere:

Still, I’d go back to the San Diego Comic con in a heartbeat.


And here we are at the Tri-County Fair this Labor Day weekend.  It was a day of prize-winning pumpkins, baby farm animals, axe throwing competitions and the Demolition Derby.

So that’s summer, in a nutshell.  Thanks for tuning in!
