• Well, shucks. I made a New Year’s Resolution to update my blog at least once a week, and I went and broke it immediately. Hope you had a good holiday type season. Eleanor and I are having our Christmas on Wednesday and mashing it up with her birthday. We found a perfectly good (well, slightly dried out) Xmas tree out on the curb by a church, so: score.
• I almost missed this! I drew a choose-your-own-adventure comic written by the mighty Jason Shiga for the current issue of Nick Magazine (the Dec/Jan issue) and there was a post about it on the Nick comics blog. Check it out! I’m actually working on another Nick piece right now.
• We found a huge dead possum lying in the grass behind our house yesterday. We ended up digging a little grave for him in the brush and putting a bunch of logs on top. This was more a matter of practicality than sentiment.
• We went to a fun re-gifting party at our friend David and Kerry’s house and came back with a tiny whisk, some cinnamon-toast scented candles, and a bottle of Vermouth. So I guess we’ll be whisking up some martinis around our cinnamon-scented house.
