whisper words of wisdom

Last week was the first of the summer workshops! What a hoot! Met a bunch of really talented and awesome folks (who are HOPEFULLY READERS NOW!) and taught a really fun One Sheet Workshop session. What's even more cool about that was my darling roommate and friend Jen Vaughn was taking photos and is writing an article for a top secret magazine that I might be in... check out the "new" face of comics!

Also, this is just a heads up, friends, your books are in the mail if you ordered, and so ya'll know, the next two weeks might have really short/sappy posts as it's the final stretch of my time in White River Junction so bare with me, okay? But if you want to read a REALLY great article written about The Center for Cartoon Studies and how great it is, and see a quote by ME, click HERE Have a great Wednesday!

Like sugar and spice

I can't believe it's over dear internet friends! Harry Potter, the final movie, done. I mean the HP universe has consumed my life since 1998... that's just over half my life... WHAT!? Anyway, it was great. I'm not going to talk about the movie at all or the plot because not everyone is as crazy as I am... so they probably don't know what happens on every page. But here's some photos from my awesome friends who came with me to wait in line and dress up. Boy I love these folks. :)



NOT MY DAUGHTER YOU BITCH!



The D.A. members for the ride. Left to right: Jon Chad (Voldie), Denis St. John (Bill Weasley), Dakota McFadzean (Micheal Corner), Claire Sanders (Gryffinfor Supporter), Colleen Frakes (Cho Chang), Josh Kramer (Gryffindor Supporter), Laura Pfeifer (Luna Lovegood), yours truly (Molly Weasley), and Alec Longstreth (Snitch/Summer Hagrid)



Put your foot next to mine!



After the movie shot... note Alec and I are the only ones sad... ha!

In my comics life, a big fat THANK YOU to everyone who has bought my book! Don't forget you can purchase it at the Store or read the whole thing for free here.

I'm working on a new comic that will be a part of the Xerox Candy Bar room in the new Betty Rhymer Gallery in Chicago, IL in September. If you know much about me, you know one of my favorite people is Mr. Kyle O'Connell, well he's written something that vaguely resembles a funny story about how XCB met us, and I'm drawing it. More to come on that later. Have a great week! Happy summer!

My teacher is a werewolf!

Alright kiddos! It's finally here! A book you've NEVER SEEN! Fugue Part 1.



For digital reading and downloading. Enjoy book one, and if you REALLY liked it, you can purchase it at the store located to the right! The actual, factual copy has screen printed covers, super awesome packaging from yours truly and lots and lots of love! Be sure to buy one for your mom, your music teacher, your friends, and your daughters!

Soon to come will be the digital and order-able versions of Fugue Part 2. Which is available via flickr right now, but downloadable abilities are in its future.

Things not comic related: I just got back from Belinda Cook (now Blakely)'s wedding and pal-ing around with some Chicago homies, and a really great Vermont homie. I bought a brand spankin' new laptop! And I'm getting my costume ready for the final Harry Potter movie... which I am seeing at midnight on Thursday. I can't tell you who I'll be, but you'll see pictures from the event, so stay tuned my little ones.

Side note: WOW! 60 POSTS!! YES!!!

BloooooooOOOOOOOOOOOOOoooooo--oh-ohh-ow

Greetings! I'm writing from top secret location in North Carolina!! Why am I there? I can't tell you! When will I come back? Sunday night! Why didn't I blog yesterday?! Because I was working on my Lies Grown Ups Told Me Anthology submission! And barely finishing before getting on a plane! So try not to weep too much, as next week I'll return with a much needed content-filled update. But for now, enjoy this picture of Life Sized Beth and her Life Sized Artwork on display in White River Junction's very own Tuckerbox!!



And a picture of my super fun and talented studio mates!
