LOVED this. It's always awesome to read about your various adventures, but it was especially cool to see it this way.
Sandra Boynton of everyone's golden childhood, and then there's me again, laughing at Sandy's jokes.
Me and a creeped-out Bill Amend of Foxtrot.
A huge thank you to the NCS board and membership for the kind invite out to talk, to Universal Press Syndicate for the hospitality -- and for the warm welcome to all us youngin's over the course of the weekend. It was nothing but lovely.
Fun strip and it didn't even involve Arthur!
Glad to see Web and Print making nice. Scott Kurtz attitude and willingness to mix it up over the years soured me on him and his work. Pretty hard to look at his work without that baggage. Nice to see so many others have taken the high road and you among them.
Can I say I love this a lot Dave? In fact, I considered buying it for a second or two... but someone else beat me to it already. It's OK, I already have another strip of yours. :)
Probably what I love the most of it is not the strip itself but what it represents. It's about two formerly opposite worlds -web and print cartoonists- (finally) coming of age, shaking hands and recognizing we're all in the same boat. It was about time, and that's great.
At least that's how I interpreted it.
More often than not meeting our heroes can be really awkward, but those moments never stand a chance when you hear a casual phrase from such a mighty figure, thrown away like it's nothing, and for you, that meant a lifetime achievement!
Congrats all you guys!
It's so cool to hear how funny Sandra Boynton was. Her book What's Wrong, Little Pookie was the first book my son genuinely laughed at. Of course, the fact that his dad was laughing hysterically might have sold that a little. Still, I've always loved her work and her wacky sense of humor.
Love the caricatures and now I'm even more gutted that I couldn't make it to this year's Reubens. Hope to meet you at another one.
