So, first and foremost, I am ecstatic that my new anthology, Wings for Wheels: A Tribute to Bruce Springsteen is finished! It's a project I've been itching to do for ages and this year I finally harassed enough people that it came together. The book features the incredible talents of Pat Barrett, Jen Vaughn, Todd McArthur, Jen May, Josh PM Frees and insane cover art by Dan McCool. If you're going to SPX next weekend look for Pat or Jen to pick up a copy! (These are also available in my online store.)
Secondly, SF Zinefest this weekend was a rollicking success. I got to table with the amazing Kane Lynch, the organizers were helpful, knowledgable and friendly, the attendance was great and I got to catch up with some cartoonist pals I haven't seen since last fall!
Also, in my spare time (what spare time?!?!) I've been volunteering for the Obama campaign. I'm not going to use this space to monologue about my political leanings but, if you want to show your support for the pres. and you're in the east bay on Thursday - please make your way to Pyramid Brewery on Gilman for the DNC watch party! There'll be good beer, good food, good company and a HUGE screen to watch Barack's speech on and get fired up as we get close to the election!
AND, lastly, I feel like a broken record BUT, I'm moving...again! Another year, another adventure, another city. Apparently, this nomadic heart will not be chained!
This time I will be headed north to that lush, green, overcast grunge-haven, Seattle. I'm not sure yet how permanent of a move this will be for me but, if anyone has any suggestions on paid work, housing or wants to come visit - shoot me an email! I'm heading up on the 20th so, Bay Area friends, let's make the most of the next few weeks and, Seattle friends, batten down the hatches and lock up your daughters!
