times are good or bad

Friends! I know I don't have to tell you this, but things have been insane here. I've been running all over the town to settle my Chicago debts from way back when, meeting up with mobsters and middlemen left and right. But I've finally cleared my name, and become a 100% legit Chicago resident. ID, Library card and Chicago train pass and all.

Needless to say, there haven't been many comics in the making, and since I've put up all of books 1 and 2 already, I'm a little bit at a loss. I've been working hard on ideas and ways to complete the tale, but nothing more than midnight scraps of paper and chats that blow your mind into a pizza. And on top of that business, I've been attempting to get my poor book club members back up to speed on what they paid me for!

Aside from the guilt, things are sliding into place and my gears are switching into lecture and handout mode for teaching. I'd really like to have everything for the whole semester ready to go before it even starts, but that's a bit of a fantasy that shouldn't exist. On top of class prep, tomorrow through Saturday I'll be spending my time in the Gallery helping put up the CartoonInk! show at the Sullivan Galleries. You'll hear more about this later.

And since Chicago is located in a great place, I've been getting and will continue to get some excellent visitors! Last Sunday, the one and only Em Sauter arrived at my doorstep and we have a lovely day together! Had some brunch, had some brews and checked out some books! A three-B day if you ask me. She's on her Beer-cation, check out her website as it is Ukrainian Beer Week! Later today I'll be enjoying a sandwich with Ms. Deborah Howe, the Conservator from Dartmouth Preservation Services! And tomorrow, my darling cousin, Emma, and Aunt Kara will be in town because Emma is attending Columbia in the Fall! Can't wait to see those two! And Chicago, keep your eyes peeled for some more excellent cartoonists swingin' their way through the city!

Stay tuned for a post with some actual comics updating, cool facts, and maybe some fun photos of things in Chicago! Okay, I love you, bye-bye!
