Monkey Business

Thanks to all the great students who came out for this weekend’s workshop at LAAFA! You guys were a joy to work with.

A couple of benefit comics out there this week: Panels for Primates (promoting primaterescue.org) and this call for submissions for an anthology to help promote anti-bullying awareness.

I like this handy round-up of UK artists. Anyone want to attempt it with other countries and create single portal?

This is medical wrap-up week, with two or three procedures planned to hopefully put both my kidney stone and arterial fall-out to rest. Wish me luck.


Discussion (14)¬

  1. You know we are all thinking about you. You just tell that body of yours to shape up and get with the program because your mind is a international treasure that needs safeguarding. I mean, how would I have ever discovered that the meaning of life is the illustrated narrative without you? ; o )

  2. Amen! Expect some Utah prayers to come your way :)

  3. two or three procedures in a week?! Oy. Good luck Scott!

    (hoping it’s just two!)

  4. Mara Baz says:

    Hello, Scott! Thanks again for the class. It was incredibly eye-opening. I hope I can take everything I learned and put it to good use.

    Good luck with everything!

    Take care,
    Mara

  5. Kelly says:

    I had a fabulous time and learned so much. I cannot wait to go to work! Thank you so much. I will never forget this weekend!

    Take care of yourself. All the best to you!
    Kelly

  6. Ryan Claytor says:

    Best of luck with the procedures, Scott. I’ll keep my fingers crossed that there is truly (as your doctor so eloquently stated) “nothing to worry about.”

  7. Bruce Townley says:

    Good luck with the procedures, Scott.

  8. Luis says:

    Praying for successful procedures and Peace.

  9. Peter says:

    Scott: the class was great! Thanks so much for doing it. I made a promise to myself afterward that it wouldn’t be the last weekend I spent making comics.

    Speaking of which, is there a “Teaching Comics” graphic novel in your future? The exercises were so engaging, I’m sure they’d be of interest to a wider audience. And it seems like comics are getting more attention from the world of academia these days.

    • Scott says:

      In many ways, Making Comics grew out of some of my earliest seminars, and then the seminars changed as a result of MC. So in a sense there’s already been some back and forth there.

      Thanks for joining us this weekend!
