Blast from the past

I was digging in my old computer today and found this illo I did. It must be 3 years old. I've worked in children's publishing in one way or another-and sometimes you just have to get a little...twisted. Enjoy!

Chickengirl's Manga picks

I love comics but I never read much manga, since they are usually associated with girly high school romance stories (those were never my thing). But to my surprise, neither of these two books have that! I've been reading and following Banana Fish and Monster for quite a while now, and both are well written, sophisticated, and very addictive. I love that fact that these stories are gender neutral -both guys and girls can enjoy them (but certainly not for kids. )

Banana Fish is already up to volume 14 (there are only a few more volumes to go before the story ends. Wahhh!) You know the story is good when you fall in love with the characters. Good stuff!

So why....chickens? I get asked this alot. I am still a little lost for words everytime someone asks me this. The obsession started in the first year of college, but really thinking about it- I didn't even realized I had this chicken clock. I've had it ever since I was a kid. The alarm is a clucking sound....(yup, thats right!) It still works, but the seconds hand fell off and occasionally it gets stuck. But thats pretty good considering this clock must be at least 20 years old. I would be very sad the day I will have to replace it. But it is still going strong!

So my logical explanation for my love of chickens is the years of clucking seeping into my subconscious, beckoning me to love chickens.

MoCCA Art Fest

MoCCA Art Fest was this weekend and it was a great experience. Much thanks to those who stopped by the table and said hello, and bought our stuff! It never gets old to see people appreciating your work and want to buy your prints. My best selling postcard was the Evil Robot, and copies of Abe the Burping Rooster are all gone- either sold or swapped with other comic artists. Here are some cool comics I got:

And imagine Mathboy's joy when he got this t-shirt there:

Anyways, it was nice meeting so many people doing some very cool art.
