Doug Wright Awards Auction: BUY NOW!

May 6th, 2010

The Catwoman piece, which many of you seemed to enjoy, is now AVAILABLE ON EBAY.

I really went all out on this one, folks. It’s watercolour on REAL WATERCOLOUR PAPER!

You can see what other people (Chester Brown, Michael Cho, Kate Beaton, Bryan Lee O’Malley, others!) did here. Look all you like, but remember you want to buy the purple lady.

All proceeds will benefit the Doug Wright Awards.

The Seven Year Itch

Has anything been rendered more irrelevant than an ENCYCLOPEDIA? I found one on the street today. It seemed very oddly curated, at least picture-wise. It contains what seemed like excessive amount of snakes, Mesopotamian tapestry designs, and bird species. Not so many, oh, WOMEN.

An Honest Day’s Work (Looming Doubts)

Today I also had coffee with Tracy White, of Traced.com. In addition to the stories, I love the interactivity of her webcomics. It gives the work a reason to exist specifically online. I guess Scott McCloud was  right about the whole comics-on-the-web thing after all. Smart guy.

In conclusion, we’ve seen how 1) people have always have the compulsion to organize information, even via (in retrospect) humorously cumbersome methods.

I still think, however, people covet the tangible, concrete, tactile. Most of us anyway. Which brings us to 3): Sam Weber is selling a print! Sam has never sold a print before and quantities are limited, so go, go, go if you want in.
