I'm enloying the peace and solitude of my countryside headquarters. When I'm not slogging through my work at my day-job or working on the house, I'm sitting by the river atring at the water move. Occasionally, wild turkeys come to terrorize me.

I've been busy with future pages of Ectopiary. Also, this week I'll be working on a collaborative multi-media project with violinist and eclectic noisemaker Katt Hernandez.

In the meantime, I've looked through my archives and found this oddity; a re-touched-up panel from "Hail Jeffrey". Aside from the story's appearance in Chrome Fetus #6, it has been published in The Comics Interpreter and Danny Hellman's Typhon. In both former publications, this one image has been altered from its original appearance (lower left-hand corner) to accommodate their sensitive readers. Perhaps when a book collection eventually comes out, the poor girl's tits will be allowed to remain as they were meant to be....

Twenty weeks of updates and I've yet to tire. Let's hope this resilience persists.

Not much to report this week. This may be a good thing; Most occurences in my life recently have not been overwhelmingly positive. I will refrain from complaining further.

In the meantime, here is an ancient illustration which is a partial homage to the effervescent Mahendra Singh, who is soon to publish his inspired adaptation of The Hunting Of The Snark.

This week's blog is a couple of days late. I'm recovering from my trip to New York to attend MoCCA. Many thanks to Ken Applebaum for letting me crash at his place. He is a fine host, and his cat is exceptionally tolerant.

I had a fine time signing at the Fantagraphics table. They only brought a handful of The Squirrel Machine, so they sold out rapidly in the first day. Fortunately, I brought some of my self-published booklets to sell, so it wasn't a total loss.

I also had a blast hanging out with the fine folks of Blurred Books fLinkor the premier of their comics newspaper POOD. They have a knack for pulling together some extremely talented people. I am honored to be among them.

Below is a snapshot of me (with no copies of The Squirrel Machine to sign), sheepishly sitting beside Miss Lasko-Gross, who is actively autographing books for long lines of admiring folllowers. Sigh.

Another adequate page in the slowly aggregating narrative. I'm hoping the pretty pictures help ease the digestion.
(Note: I recently attempted to add a link to this blog at the Ectopiary site, but it doesn't work. It may take a couple of weeks before I can repair it.)
I plan on attending MoCCA in NYC this weekend. I'll be at the Fantagraphics Table, signing copies of The Squirrel Machine, and I'll also be at the POOD table, promoting their debut comics newspaper that contains a new giant Cochlea & Eustachia comic. If you're in the area, be sure to visit! I promise not to drool on you.
Speaking of expectorations, here is yet another product of my being; a third unpublished C&E color comic. Enjoy!
