Rainy Day Driving and More

Good evening/morning/whenever you read this. I'm writing it on Friday night, from the darkened upstairs office at my friend Pete's, down in Baltimore. The office is darkened because I can't figure out how to turn on the light. I'm also in here because we just had Thai food, and I'm farting up a blue storm, and I don't want to subject anyone else to this.

My other friend Jim and I drove down earlier today, making pretty good time. Mostly because Jim drives like all the agents of Hell are on his tail.

I did, due to some remarkable planning and strategizing on my part, manage to complete the art project that I hinted at the other day, and it is, in fact, a mini collecting all of the Vomit Comics to date, including all of the essays and not much else. Still, it's a nice package - I must admit, I'm pretty pleased with the way it came out. I've printed up a small run for sale at the Baltimore Comicon. Did I mention the Comicon, yet? That's the reason Jim and I are here in the first place.

Anyhow, any extra copies that I have left over from the convention can be had from me at cover price or free, depending on how well you know me, or how damning the blackmail evidence you have on me - which, come to think about it, are really the same thing.

Shame I don't have a Twitter page, because I guess if I had anything worth Twittering about, it would be live from the floor of the Baltimore Comicon. Anyhow, I'll see if I have it in me to give any coverage tomorrow. Right now, I'm very, very sleepy.

ah - since you mentioned the con, i had thought your project was kalliope's comic - which was confusing, as a) i thought it was finished and b) you had mentioned it before, and you hinted this was something you hadn't. noooow i get it. :) yay dave comic!

It's neat. It probably doesn't hold together as a comic - well, it definitely doesn't, but I'm pleased with it as an object, and I do think the addition of all the essays makes it worth its cost.

Something like this - a collection of sketchbook work - is better as a supplement to other more 'serious' work. So now I'll have to produce some of that.
