BLOG THE TWELFTH

I will be on the road for the next few weeks for the Squirrel Machine Book Tour (details here). I'm hoping to meet you, dear reader.
Whether or not you will be able attend any of the scheduled book-signings, please succor yourself with the following scans. These pages are from the earliest known version of The Squirrel Machine, drawn in 1999. It only lasted eleven pages before I gave up. Also, note the primitive and clumsy artwork. It is somewhat reassuring that I've demonstrated some modest improvement since that time. Oh, what the future holds!

BLOG THE ELEVENTH


I just left the Philly Alternative Comics Con. I had a surprisingly good time. I was seated next to Charles Burns, (famous for The Black Hole, Big Baby and Dog Boy) a very gracious and talented individual. I sold every copy of The Squirrel Machine I brought with me. I have now graduated from being someone who draws comics that no-one reads to a person that draws comics that no-one comprehends!
To supplement this supposition, I have links to two kind reviews from The Comics Reporter and Wednesday's Child. Also, here is Part 2 of my interview with The Daily Crosshatch. Unfortunately, in this section of the interview I occasionally lapse into incoherent babbling; please accept my apologies.

Please forgive the brevity of this week's post. I am a tired man.
I had a fine chat with the good folks at The Daily Crosshatch. The first part of my interview can be read here : http://thedailycrosshatch.com/2009/09/01/interview-hans-rickheit-pt-1/
Also, The Squirrel Machine got a very generous review written by Rachel M Rollson at Panel to Panel : http://paneltopanel.net/shop/article_info.php?tPath=2&articles_id=39
In the meantime, here are some doodles and an old flier for a currently-defunct arts & performance space.
