*GREETINGS FROM THE BLACK FOREST OF GERMANY…
They just reran my interview on the Story last night–Welcome all y’all who’ve never read my stuff before. I hope you’ll stick around..
I’m currently chillin’ in the tiny little town on Monchweiler, Germany with my wunderbar in-laws. We’re eating spaetzle and cake and schinken whilst drinking the local beer (Tannenzaepfle!!).
We took the Incredible Cuteness of Being sledding for the first time at 17 months. It probably wasn’t the most responsible thing I’ve ever done, but I didn’t crash the sled til I went on my solo runs.
The boy traumatized not by the snow, but by the horrendous temperature. We arrived on a day of record-setting cold. Minus 30 degrees celsius!! But it kicked up to zero the next day. Pretty harsh for a kid born in Southern California…
*GOOD RIDDANCE 2009!!
I don’t know about you, but this past year ranks up there as the worst of my short existence. Death, sickness, pain, suffering–And that’s just what’s happened to the print and comics industry!!
Nah–in all seriousness, I lost some close people this year..And as I stumble haphazardly into middle age, it’s just going to get worse. Ye olde circle of life I suppose..
But 2010 is shaping up to be a tasty year! I’ve got a new (th)ink collection coming, and the first collection of my daily strip, the Knight Life. Plus my first time as a special at the San Diego Comic Con. Also: the return of T-SHIRTS!! Bow down , fools!!
Just hope all of us and bounce back economically and start throwin’ some cash to where it really counts: Cartoonists and people who sell sh** on Etsy!!
