Off to Texas

I'm going to Texas! I've been meaning to post about this for awhile but, as usual, I'm only getting to it at the last minute. Several Texas schools have invited me to come and speak about comics, writing and creativity. And so, next week I'll be embarking on a two week ramble through the Lone Star State, visiting schools (and a couple bookstores) near the cities of Dallas and Austin. It's exciting, and a little bit daunting as I've never done a marathon of back-to-back school visits like this before.

And of course it's no coincidence that January is the big month of voting for the Texas Bluebonnet Award (Zita the Spacegirl is in this year's list).

Thankfully my wife's parents are coming to stay while I am away, so my little family will be in good hands.

Hey, if you're passing through Austin drop in at St. Mary's Cathedral on Brazos and 6th. It's undergoing some renovation right now, but it's still one of the prettiest churches in TX.

Thanks so much for visiting our school today! My students absolutely enjoyed you! I do a graphic novel unit every year with my kids and now they are even more excited to do it. How long are you in Austin for?
