Drew this a few days ago and it gave me an idea for a tiny little book I hope to have ready in time for Stumptown Comics Fest. I don’t have time at this point to finish a larger project, but for a long time now I keep saying I’m going to make something that will be more affordable anyways. Lately I’ve just got the idea of drawing something sort of hopeful stuck in my head, so I’m going to run with this and see if I can pull it all together on such short notice. Hopefully!

Quick change to my WonderCon plans: I’ll be at the Girl Genius booth with Phil Foglio.

Andrew and I will be at WonderCon in San Francisco this weekend, working the Cartoon Art Museum booth. Stop by to say hello and/or purchase Narbonic and Skin Horse books.
Also, we’re on panels!
2:00-3:00 Hero Initiative and “Ed Hannigan: Covered”— Hero Initiative president Jim McLauchlin and Cartoon Art Museum curator Andrew Farago preview the Gallery’s “Ed Hannigan: Covered” exhibit. See some of the great art that will be up for auction and catch the world debut of the Ed Hannigan video, celebrating the works of the great artist. And hit the Museum Friday night at 8:00 pm for a great party! Room 232/234.
11:30-12:30 Spotlight on Judd Winick: The Ugly Truth!— WonderCon special guest Judd Winick (Batman, Justice League: Generation Lost) — comics writer, cartoonist, and “reality TV has-been” (Judd’s choice of words, not ours!) — is holding court, taking questions, and battling back all comers in a no-holds-barred Q&A. The controversial creator will be discussing new work, old hullabaloos, and how he’s come to “love the haters” with the Cartoon Art Museum’s Andrew Farago. And there may be cookies. Room 220
3:00-4:00 Spotlight on Gail Simone— WonderCon special guest Gail Simone is the fan-favorite writer behind such DC titles as Wonder Woman, Secret Six, and Birds of Prey. Comic creator and journalist Shaenon Garrity (Narbonic, Skin Horse) interviews Gail about her career and upcoming projects. Room 232/234.
1:00-2:00 From Page to Screen— WonderCon special guests Peter S. Beagle (The Last Unicorn), Jimmy Palmiotti (Painkiller Jane), Tim Powers (On Stranger Tides, the basis for the next Pirates of the Caribbean movie), and Greg Rucka (Whiteout) talk about their own experiences in seeing their creations make the move to the big—and small—screen. The Cartoon Art Museum’s Andrew Farago moderates. Room 103.
The Cartoon Art Museum’s annual WonderCon fundraising party is Friday night. On that special night, if the museum has received enough donations, Andrew will get the Bat-Symbol shaved into his head. I’m a little worried by how excited he is about this.
