July 22-24: COMIC-CON. This is my first SDCC and I am a featured guest AND my little petit-livre Indoor Voice will debut there! Holy Crow. Here is my schedule, as it stands now… all signings will be conducted out of the D&Q booth, #1529. Please come to see me!

3-4: Signing, D&Q booth, #1529 [I am praying to the comic gods I will be there on time…. flying in from SF but a few hours before]

2–3: Graphic Novels: The Personal Touch—You know when you read it: that certain something that sticks out in a graphic novel. It’s the personal touch, a work that draws on the life of the creator or the people around him or her. Call the work autobiographical, call it reality—many times it results in truly personal and inspiring comics. Comics creator and journalist Shaenon Garrity (Narbonic, Skin Horse) talks to Comic-Con special guests Gabrielle Bell (Cecil & Jordan in New York), Howard Cruse (Stuck Rubber Baby), Vanessa Davis (Make Me a Woman), Larry Marder (Beanworld), Jillian Tamaki (Skim), and Carol Tyler (You’ll Never Know Book 1: A Good and Decent Man) about their very personal work.

11–12: Spotlight on Jillian Tamaki—Comic-Con special guest Jillian Tamaki has taken both the illustration and comics worlds by storm. Her graphic novel Skim, was a New York Times Best Book of the Year, and also was nominated for a Governor General Award. Her drawings can be found in the NYT, Oprah, New Yorker, and Esquire. Tamaki will discuss the process of Skim, collaborating with a writer and the difference between comics and illustration. Room 3
