THE TAO OF IGOR was to have led into a Kickstarter for a 25th anniversary edition collection of the Complete Dork Tower, three large volumes taking the place of the ten now out there (five of which are out of print). They would be better curated, and far better organized. Of the many lessons The Tao […]
A very different comic was supposed to run yesterday. I very much wanted to spend this week finishing off a delightful project for a French tabletop company – a terrific new boardgame, from one of my favorite designers. So I had a backup DORK TOWER – one that ran in Game Trade Magazine, back in […]
Here’s where things are at: The last four pages should go to the proofreaders today. I need to finish the afterward today or tomorrow, as well as the “Thank You” page. I need to finish coloring he Sistine Pages in the next few days. Then the PDFs go off to the Kickstarter backers, and Matt- […]
OK, I’ve been terrible at updating this work blog as often as I’d hoped, but I’ve been aces about actually getting work done every day, to finish up THE TAO OF IGOR. I’m back in the US, after ten days in London, mostly for my sister’s 50thy birthday. I accomplished a great deal on TAO […]
So this last week encompassed the trip to Austin, my birthday, and Thanksgiving with my brother’s family in St. Louis. I managed to get pretty good work done on all days save Thanksgiving itself. I honestly don’t mind working on my birthday, or holidays. I love cartooning. Anyway, work was accomplished six of the seven […]
It’s been a weekend. Saturday morning I had to catch a 7 am flight, to get me to Austin, TX, for the celebration of the life of my dear friend and colleague Andrew Hackard. I nearly missed my connecting flight, but the God of Travel was on my side, and I made it to town […]
I’d forgotten I’d committed to taking over the Overture Center’s Instagram account, today, as I’ve got a piece in their “Everything Covid” exhibit. Less work done today than I’d hoped. Staying off the internet is usually a good thing. The first actual piece of work I managed to get to wasn’t until 11:30. My best […]
Notes coming back from the proofreaders. A lot of notes. This is a good thing, of course. But I had assumed pages 1 – 160 were close to being DONE done. Most embarrassing catch? “First Edition: Published January, 2021.” John
Hello there! Welcome to what I hope will be a sort of TAO OF IGOR Countdown Journal, as I finish off the last bits and pieces (most small – one large) of the new collection. Obviously, completing THE TAO OF IGOR’s taken far longer than I could have ever imagined. TLDR: because I didn’t get […]
Over the past many years, I’ve included a lunch note for Daughter, Age 13, when she goes off to school each day. (Honestly, I’m delighted – if a bit surprised – that she still asks for them.) Usually, these are directly tied to something she’s studying, or her current fandoms. The first two weeks of […]
