…Tickets go on sale Tuesday for the 2010 Festival of Cartoon Art at Ohio State. It’s the big, triennial shin-dig in the cartooning world, and I’ll be speaking at this year’s event along with a host of cartoonin’ dignitaries…like Matt Groening (Simpsons), Roz Chast (New Yorker), Patrick McDonnell (Mutts), Art Spiegelman (Maus), Dan Piraro (Bizarro) and more.
Tickets are super, super limited, so head over to the registration site on Tuesday if you were hoping to go!
Good news! From now until June 1st, there’s free shipping to anywhere in the world on Sheldon Original Art!
New York? Free! London? Free! Deepest Siberia? Free!
As you know, every Sheldon strip is hand-drawn and hand-lettered on acid-free Bristol Vellum paper, using archival inks…so they’re crying out to be displayed on walls. For dramatic purposes, let me use all caps for that: GUYS, THEY’RE CRYING OUT FOR IT. 🙂
Anyway! Underneath every Sheldon strip on the website is a bit of blue text that reads “Buy Today’s Original Art.” So if there’s a strip you’ve had your eye on, that’s the button to click. And when you do: BLAM-O, free shipping.
Looking for a specific strip? Try using the site’s search feature to type in keywords or punchlines from that strip. Or, barring that, drop me an e-mail to ask me directly!
Guys, you have to check this out. Visual FX student Dan Taubert has created this incredible short based on “Drive”. (Here’s a reduced-size embedded player…but watch it full screen if you can, by clicking the four outward-facing arrows on the lower right.)
Dan, this is incredible! …Incredible, incredible! Thank you so much for this. I even love how the Continuum ships are at the Denny’s, as well. Ain’t nobody can resist a little “Moons Over My-Hammy”.
(And for those interested, here’s Dan’s write-up of the process along the way.)
I should start by thanking everyone who came out and said “hi” in Seattle at The Comic Stop on Monday — Gloria and I had a lot of fun meeting you all. And a big internet high-five to Jim, George, and all The Comic Stop staff for welcoming us there. And if you took pics — and six or seven of you did — send ’em along and I’ll post ’em!
Next, I should mention Twitter…since that’s the topic o’ the day in the strip. And I’ll be honest, here: For all its faults, I’ve become addicted to Twitter.
Facebook, I’ve never really gotten into. I mean, I guess I log in every once in a while…but it’s not really my style. It’s a big elaborate hook just to show me your vacation photos.
But the bare-bones style of Twitter I really respond to: It’s the substance without all the window-dressing.
1.) On Monday night, my wife will be making her national TV acting debut on CBS’ “How I Met Your Mother”. She says it’s a ‘blink-and-you-miss-it’ moment…but I’ve seen her act in New York, LA, and London, and I can tell you right now she lights up anything she’s involved in. She’s playing Rachel: Ted’s girlfriend’s best friend! Look for her at 8PM on your local CBS channel.
