TOURING COMICS AND ETSY

Okay, business first: I have REOPENED MY ETSY SHOP. I have a limited supply of PRINTS and ORIGINAL ART. If you're interested in such things then please, by all means, follow this link and poke around.

And now on to the fun stuff: 

So I spent the golden closing week of September, and the first couple days of October traveling through the South and the Midwest, visiting schools and bookstores and libraries. It was a little book tour for _Mighty Jack_.  Touring is intense. Sometimes you feel like a traveling salesman, peddling tired stories to people who could care less, other times you feel like you really are sharing something of yourself with real people who are thrilled to see you.

As with all tours, there were highs and lows. There were moments of magic and real kindness, and times of exhaustion. Old friends (and one old high school teacher!) showed up to my events. I even got to travel with my dad for a leg of the journey and stop in, all-too-briefly at my parent's house.

I've done book tours before, but this time I tried to squeeze in some tiny comics to chronicle the journey. These were drawn in spare moments, on airport floors, hotel desks, in planes and coffee shops. 

Here are my On the Road Comics:

We loved seeing you in Louisville. The kids were inspired by your advice to draw Garfield every day. And the quality of 'graphic novels' in this house has gone way up. (They've also each read Mighty Jack about once a day since we saw you.)

Thanks for taking the time away from home to do the tour! It really made a huge difference to my crew of weirdos. :)

The point of these banks is to change over these impermanent structures into something more lasting. They do this by changing over these mud houses into physical houses. These physical houses are known as "Pukka" houses. These provincial banks have likewise given subsidizing to different rehabilitative endeavors, for example, evacuating the harsh bond ground surface of these country houses and supplanting it with tiles. payday loans

Hi,


An intriguing discussion is worth comment. I think that you ought to publish more on this subject matter, it might not be a taboo matter but generally people don't discuss these issues. To the next!
