Here are some snapshots from the past two months:
First up, graphic novelist Jim Ottaviani (author of "Bone Sharps") swung by a few weeks ago. Here he is in the bullpen with Zander, probably talking about how much fun they're going to have this weekend at Mocca.
A handful of Lutefisk Sushi artists pose in the Attic with their stuffed-with-comics bento boxes. Hard to believe that the third Sushi show has come and gone already! Artists featured above are (L to R): Lupi Miguinti, Maxeem Konrardy (kneeling), Ryan Dow, Jon Sloan, Zander Cannon, David Sandberg, and Carl Nelson.
Kirk Taylor came by the Cartoonist Conspiracy meeting last Thursday and gave a great presentation on Wesley Morse (the creator of Bazooka Joe). Kirk's talk focused on a cache of drawings he recently uncovered. The drawings -- pencil, ink, and wash on Morse's own stationary -- are beautiful and often cynical "love letters," all sent to Kirk's great aunt, actress Avonne Taylor. You can read much more at the collection's website. Thanks, Kirk!
