friends of the nib


Hi, I've been away for awhile; still in Seattle and my mum's doing much better. She had to go in for a second operation and was in hospital for three weeks, but she's back home now and we're trying to keep her quiet. She's normally a very sociable person, and the doctors had her on some drugs that made her even more hyperactive than usual. So we practically had to sit on her to keep her from planning the first of many dinner parties the day she got home. We've been on some nice walks, particularly to the Kubota Garden in south Seattle. I'd never seen it before, but it's a gorgeous bit of Japan, tucked away near Boeing Field. I also visited the Fantagraphics Shop for the first time, and went to a Friends of the Nib gathering at the Cafe Racer in the University District. Here are some pictures, including a sketch of dlasky and photos with him and inkboy and a bunch of other lovely comics people.

edit: Hey, cool. dlasky just put up a picture of his sketch of me!

Drag .. if the weather hadn't blown foul, we would have been there to meet you. Well, some day.

Great news about your mother! Hope you're okay too! Is this the first time you and DLasky have met in person?
We miss you. Take care.

SO glad that your mum is better! I hope you can relax a bit now and go on more walks to pretty gardens, dinner parties and see friends!

Can't wait for when you're back and we catch up!
Until then enjoy,
I will be thinking of you and your family,

Love from
Annika

I'm so glad to hear that your mom is doing better!!
It must be tough for a social butterfly to be told to take it easy!
I'll send healing thoughts her way :-)

It was great to meet you in person, Sarah. You fit in perfectly with the other Friends of the Nib (maybe you can start an Atlantic chapter?). And I hope your mom is up and about soon!
