snow is gary's big white canvas

Gary Northfield's not in the studio this morning, but you can sense his presence if you look closely... He spent much of yesterday throwing snowballs at irate people on Twitter.

This morning, Hannah, my editor, approved the inside artwork for the extra pages of my Vern and Lettuce book for the DFC Library. So today I'm colouring it, with my feet perched on my hot water bottle.

Just got a call from Georgia at Random House saying they're sending me up to do an event or two at the Edinburgh Book Festival. We're still sorting out the date in August, but I'm really looking forward to that.

I saw inkstuds had a mention of a comics artist named Corinne Mucha, and I've ordered a copy of her latest comic, My Alaskan Summer. You can preview some of it on her website, looks good.

2 things -

1. Edinburgh is easily one of my favorite places, and I envy you terribly. TERRIBLY!!!!!!!!!

2. Corinne Mucha was my favorite new person to find last year, and I've done what I can to get all of her stuff. It's incredible, and based on your aesthetic, I think you'll like it, too.

Thanks Chris, I'm so glad to have discovered her! I love the stuff I've seen so far.

I must confess, I still prefer Glasgow to Edinburgh, but I am willing to be won over! :)

Corrine is great! She's a local Chicago artist, and I LOVE her work. Excited to hear what you think!
Also, I know I owe you an email! Thank you SO MUCH for your awesome info and encouragement-- really really helped and gave me a lot to think about.

Yay, I think I've made a great new discovery in Corinne! And glad to help out with the e-mail, really excited about it all.

Did he have a ladder, or very long legs?

No, in fact, he has very short legs! He just bounces very high when you throw him off buildings.
