Sticky business

March 29, 2014

Every year I get the same calendar (yep, I still “do” paper), so to tell them apart, I sticker them up. And the stickers usually have some personal connection – friends, family, art, school. When I get I new sticker I throw it in a drawer till fall when I have to start thinking about the new year.





Pre-enjoyed (I assume)

I have one place I have to go to when I’m in the Big New Apple City of York – the Strand Bookstore. Lots of new and used books, all discounted. When I started going there in the 1980s there was a negligible comics/cartoon section – a couple of shelves as long as my arm. Now it’s two huge walls and miscellaneous shelve-y things.

I was there in January, digging around looking for treasure as usual when I found a copy of my Bo Nanas book, Monkey Meets World. I was surprised because, well, there aren’t a lot of copies out there. It went out of print pretty soon after it was published. As someone at the publishing company recently said, somewhat woefully, “It did not do well.”

I didn’t plan this as a shill but…if you just must have a copy, click here.

Been drawing a lot of rodents lately for some reason.

I know you’re probably wondering, “What happened to that thing where John draws a picture everyday based some horrid pun based on the name of the month?”

Welp, I was getting a bit tired of it and the way I was approaching it, and I needed to put that time/energy towards a new project…

…which I haven’t started.

I’m nothing if not an honest man.
