After a month of radio silence...I'm BACK! Hey everybody. I have been busy getting my life together now that I'm back in Seattle. So far so good. I'm working full time and have found a place to live blah blah blah. But how is my life as a cartoonist shaping up? First off, you can now purchase the first and second issue of Grump Toast at these fine Seattle locations: Elliott Bay Books, Left Bank Books and Zanadu Comics. Also, starting mid September I will begin an internship at the prestigious Fantagraphics. All in all things are looking pretty positive. So let's get to the meat and potatoes of this post!
If you haven't heard the news, Hurricane Irene has caused mass amounts of flooding which has hit the town of White River Jct. and CCS hard. It's a good thing the school has such an awesome team of students and faculty to swoop in and work miracles like this. I'm glad the comics were saved and no one was seriously injured. But all this destruction has really got me pining for the days when I attended CCS. I desperately miss the school, faculty and all my fellow students. SIGH. Shortly after graduating a few of my classmates and yours truly went out and got class tattoos. We each decided to draw our own ink bottles. I got mine on my drawing arm. Check out this sweet gang tatt.
Now just to be totally sentimental and mushy here's a track listing of a mix I made after my first year at school. This particular mis is about myself discovering and attending CCS. SIGH. Enjoy!
