I think Facebook is an amplifier. If you are given to community-mindedness and helping your fellow man, you will be more so on Facebook. If, on the other hand, you are given to annoying little habits and attention-seeking…
There’s a nice interview with me over at Dave Hurley’s “Don’t Pick the Flowers” blog. Finally, all your deepest, darkest questions about my deep, dark secrets will be answered! Yes, I am your International Man of Illustration Mystery (IMIM). Go forth and enjoy!
As we roll quickly on through the Christmas season and your thoughts turn to gifts for your loved ones, I would be remiss to not mention my book Headstones and Monuments for someone on your list. Almost 200 pages of my writing and illustrations.
“What,” you say? “A book of scary stories? For Christmas!?” Well, sure! After all, doesn’t the song say “There’ll be scary ghost stories and tales of the glory of Christmases long long ago…”? Sure it does. If you have a Stephen King or Neil Gaiman fan on your list, or just someone who enjoys a good story, this book won’t steer you wrong. These are slightly bone-chilling stories, mind you, not terrifying. Not gory. But scary enough.
It’s available at Amazon, both paperback and ebook versions. You can read a free sample at the Headstones and Monuments Amazon page, even download the sample directly to your Kindle or other Kindle-friendly device. (Note that the Kindle version of this book works on more than just Kindles! It also works on Kindle for PC, Kindle for iPad and iPod, etc… there are free apps for that.)
Croaker’s Gorge is finally available in print! A city boy moves to the country and meets a bunch of talking animals in the polluted swamp behind his house, resulting in a mix of humor, politics and philosophy. Fans of Calvin & Hobbes and Pogo will love this one.
Croaker’s Gorge is a strip I’ve been working on in one format or another since the early 1990s. Book #1 features the best 48 strips of all time, what I believe to be the best pitch package for the series.
